    For those who want to try a different way: go to a Police Board meeting and give testimony. Go singlely or as a group. Register in advance to testify. Go up to the Mic and ask the Police Board to ask CPD to dispatch service at the problem spot. As this is near a Post Office and School it is even more silly that CPD won't protect Postal Patrons.

    Email: Patrick.r.donahoe@Usps.org and Karen.e.schenck@usps.org and tell them what is going on. Email Marquetta at Danny Davis Office and ask they get involved. He is on the Postal board and in 2007 got Congressional meetings started where Chicago was designated the worst Post Office in the Country.

    Seems we need another Congressional Hearing about stuff that goes on in the Post Office. Perhaps if Congress hears that CPD is not policing streets and keeping Postal Stations secure...Congress can act on that too!!!

    We could rename outself. Slaughter house Chicago.

    If you go this route....post your steps on EB so the community can see what was done. Remember...elections are coming and VOTE...out these politicians who can't get city service right and safety right. Of course, keep the ones who have served you well.
