    CBS plz do more investigative reporting. A tip about the Heroin Hut in Garfield Park yielded a news crew. You aired, and the next day the Heroin Hut that had been in a Chicago park was removed. City Hall won't listen to neighborhood complaints. BUT if it hits the airwaves, all of a sudden they are ON THE SPOT.

    THANKS for the Heroin Hut story that got it removed for a city park the next day!

    Plz do more efforts like this. It is effective. TRANSPARENCY is good.

  • Delilaah We need republicans in Cook county!!!

    Unfortunately, he was at the wrong place at the wrong time. Those shots were intended for the two morons that live at 2327 N Melvina. Those two morons that live there are gang affiliated and sell drugs out of their house 24/7. Whether or not Juan Mercado was gang affiliated or not, one thing for sure he was "hanging out" with morons who are.

  • Delilaah We need republicans in Cook county!!!

    Esos valasos eran para los dos hermanos, Jordy y Juan Ibarra, que viven en el 2327 N Melvina. Jordy y Juan Ibarra estan envolucrados en gangas y venden drogras de esa casa. Si Juan Mercado estaba relacionado con gangas no se sabe, pero lo que si sabe es que se juntaba con los gangeros.

    Of course they just relocate! We all know that. The issue is that there was an open, flagrant, drug structure on City property and a Park. There are all kinds of government workers providing service to those grounds. WHY???? Didn't city workers shut this drug dealing hut down?

    One is also naive to think...that our government is powerless to clean up this mess. Look at other neighborhoods with normal functioning economies and compare it to the vacant, empty, violent, blighted, dirty areas of the south and west sides.

  • Once again, if one goes to the "West" side(Austin neighborhood), it is not dirty, blighted, empty, and vacant. Actually, much cleaner than Cragin where I live. I go into the Austin area every day, do home visits. Now, violent, yes, according to police reports.

    Yes, the government can help, but it can't do it all itself.
