    evergreener, yes due to years of hard work, the community and police together changed that area! It is no longer the OLD Twilight Zone but it is changing into the NEW Twilight Zone, with all the sanctioned illegal activity in the park and the gang shootings and now killings that it attracts! You can't stop the shootings and killings until you stop the activity that attracts gang bangerrs to the area to shoot and kill each other. Most of the gang bangers have moved away! They do not live here any longer! They are now returning because they learned they can get away with many minor crimes because some neighbors think they have the right to do so. Hell, Charlie screamed it racist and against the PR community to video and call the police about these very crimes happening in the park?!?! Then he promotes a peace march but does not invite anyone from EB?!?!? I think the East side of the park has problems that it has made for itself. You must admit, the East side has way more violence than the West side going on right now. We worked together to make our neighborhood safe and continue to do so. I even yelled at Police Officers as a guy on a ATV drove down Division right in front of them and they actually wrote the guy a ticket! Good luck with doing the same on your side my friend.

  • Patrick, are you protesting? Where are you? Why are you leaving it up to others if you yourself are outraged?

    No problem. If you don't hear back from me in a couple hours it means your email didn't come through. Not sure why, but some emails sent to me through this site never make it.

  • Michmine EHP

    Appreciate the concern, but I'll be fine. Anyway, the only "info" available is stuff the bangers know. Pretty sure they already know who shot at whom and where.
