Two men, ages 25 and 31, as well as two 22-year-old women were standing on a sidewalk in a group in the 6200 block of South Honore Street when they heard gunshots and realized they were struck, police said.

The man was a passenger in a vehicle going westbound in the 5800 block of South Wentworth Avenue, traveling northbound on Wentworth, when a dark-colored sedan pulled up alongside and someone inside fired shots, Alfaro said.

Around 5:30 p.m., a 15-year-old boy and a 16-year-old boy were injured in the 800 block of East 65th Street in the Woodlawn neighborhood, police said.

Earlier at 3:50 p.m., two men were shot in the 7400 block of South Colfax Avenue in the South Shore neighborhood, police said.

    Gurl, this thread.

  • This isn't activism. This is whining. If you want to be an activist, start organizing, lobbying, and bring about awareness in a way that makes people sympathetic to your cause not in a way that makes you look like the cliché perpetual victim.

    I find it interesting that I ,an unpaid community activist trying to preserve affordable housing in Chicago is seen as un-neighborly, when YoChicago/BJB violates EveryBlock policies against paid ads for profit making companies,, such as those posted by Yo Chicago on behalf of BJB Properties. It is also interesting that BJB Properties, which took away about 900 units of low-rent SRO housing from the nothside, at the cost of two lives, is somehow worthy defending by anyone and not seen as un--neighborly.

    If Yo Chicago or anyone else stops putting pro-BJB-ads on Everyblock, I promise not to counter post anti-BJB postings to those ads. I will still exercise my rights of free speech if non-ad pro-BJB or pro- FLATS Chicago EveryBlock postings occur.

    I don't think that objective people reading the 5/13 EB thread (SEE:http://chicago.everyblock.com/news-articles/may13-lincoln-park-and-lakeview-apartment-deals-and-finds-6849952/?utm_campaign=digest&utm_medium=email&utm_source=digest)
    and the give and take communication, with questions asked and answered , details exchanged on my experience, the SRO displacement issue, the role of BJB & FLATS, the SRO preservation ordinance, the ARO, landlord property rights. tenant's rights , and opinions, made in a mostly respectable tone by me, would see this discussion as a waste of time or un-neighborly, but I'll let EB and the community as a whole be the judge YoChicago/BJB should do the same.

    The fact that that the 5/13 EB posting, (see link above) has several pro-and anti- BJB posters should indicate that this thread has community interest and some educational value, even if the origin of the posting by YoChicago/BJB may violate EveryBlock rules. I hope everyone notices that while I try my best to answer BJB/FLATS defender questions, that BJB and FLATS defenders have failed to answer many or most of my legitimate questions. Also I use my real name and do not hide behind a fake name. BJB and FLATS defenders should be publically identified official spokespeople of BJB and FLATS and publically. for the record, answer my and others questions with the same respect that I have given them.

    Why can BJB and FLATS NOT defend their own actions, despite having many paid professional PR people who should be informed enough and trained enough to defend BJB and FLATS records and reputations?

    Is BJB and FLATS reputations not worth defending?

    Don't BJB and FLATS care what prospective or current tenants (their customers) think?

    Why would anyone want to help keep such a company in business, if they don't care about their customers?

    Ignoring community activists' concerns is one reason that led to the six-month SRO permit moratorium and the SRO preservation law, which restricted the way BJB, FLATS, and others do their business.Why did BJB & FLATS NOT learn from those hard lesson that ignoring the community may hurt them at some point?
