    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.

    So Tamara - what do you suggest we do about this?

    "I am not happy with the Madigan machine nor his supporters. And I am totally aware that past Democrat leadership have to claim responsibility for the mess that we are in."

    What do we do about that? If your answer is to vote them out, then my complaint is with a) dems who will vote dem no matter what just to keep the GOP out, and b) redistricting has worked wonders to keep politicians in place in IL (on both sides, but let's be honest - the legislature has been dem for decades now).

    I think several of Rauner's stances suck and are way too conservative. But he is the only one supporting term limits and redistricting, which I don't understand arguing against.

    I completely understand a lot of your complaints about Rauner. But you're ONLY hammering him. To answer my own question to you, along with redistricting (which Madigan won't agree to) and term limits (which Madigan won't agree to), someone has to stand up to his machine. If IL were a business, he would personally, by far, be the primary cause of our bankruptcy. And you are putting Rauner on blast?

    You say both are at fault, but it's Rauner's responsibility to budget. How else would you like him to stand up to Madigan, and stop the status quo, other than being the rock to his hard place? To not primarily blame Madigan for 90% of the mess we are in, which is the cause of human services not being funded and consistent downward trends until the income tax was raised? To not blame Rauner and Madigan equally for continuing it since? To me, it shows you are biased. I am NOT a Rauner fan, but a blind man can see that nothing will change without defeating Madigan. To argue that Madigan somehow is for the little guy here, come on. He knows exactly what he is doing and is just as much of a hostage taker.

    Totally with you on the ganja, tho :) It's big money, and pot can't be any easier to get than it already is.

<em>Power</em> Star Joseph Sikora on His Chicago Graffiti Crew Days

I can walk down the street easier than Omari, that’s for sure. However, if I’m in Brooklyn or when we go down to visit our friends, like the family that I grew up with on the South Side, they’re over at 89th and Wallace. When I’m at that neighborhood, the whole neighborhood comes out.

My dad used to work at the parish on 87th and May. That’s where my parents met actually. His best friend is this woman who’s kind of the matriarch of that entire neighborhood, and to see that kind of dynamic [growing up], is influential. My parents didn’t raise me in fear and ignorance.

    Power Star Joseph Sikora on His Chicago Graffiti Crew Days
    Former North Sider Joseph Sikora is a Chicago-born actor who admittedly once rubbed shoulders with local gangsters. He swears he has never been a thug, but he knew a few while growing up. Perhaps that's why he so masterfully portrays the well-dressed, hard-bodied, neighborhood-scrappy, drug-dealing, coke-sniffing character of Tommy Egan, who is one-half of the hot-guy-in-a-lead-role reason why Power opened the season as the No.
