Let the Gangs win

I think this is a message worth noting. This past weekend, our 14th Annual Block Party was abruptly cancelled due to a shooting that occurred the previous night. The incident involved three "reputable" gang members; in other words, they were the intended targets. The fact that these gang members are proud to make that admission is enough to prosecute them for organized crime and terrorism. I have lived in this neighborhood for over 25 years and have never seen a...

I think this is a message worth noting. This past weekend, our 14th Annual Block Party was abruptly cancelled due to a shooting that occurred the previous night. The incident involved three "reputable" gang members; in other words, they were the intended targets. The fact that these gang members are proud to make that admission is enough to prosecute them for organized crime and terrorism. I have lived in this neighborhood for over 25 years and have never seen a block party cancelled over similar incidents. There are shootings across the city every night. However, my issue is the mentality of our police who ask the peace makers to hide inside because they will arrive after a crime is committed. As far as I can see, the police are enabling the gang activity by allowing them to intimidate us and disregard our right to peace. Has anyone else experienced a similar occurrence?

    I live just on the other end of the block from you, Neighborino23. (In fact, I live in the same building where the gangbanger funeral/wake was held last Thursday).

    I'm new to the neighborhood and to Chicago in general. I'm working on getting my landlord to understand what a problem the residents in 2700 are, and hopefully he will not renew their lease when it expires. Any details you can provide would be helpful. Thanks!

    I can tell you that these individuals openly sell drugs and use minors to prevent long prison sentences. Just last week, I was walking back from Walmart with my kids and saw the same group relaxing on their stoop opening smoking weed at 6 pm. We are always hearing them...

    I can tell you that these individuals openly sell drugs and use minors to prevent long prison sentences. Just last week, I was walking back from Walmart with my kids and saw the same group relaxing on their stoop opening smoking weed at 6 pm. We are always hearing them yelling gang slurs at cars passing. There are several children under the age of ten that they expose to this type of behavior which in my opinion is child neglect/abuse.

    If your landlord is unaware that criminal activity is taking place in his building, he should know that the cops are there almost daily now. His tenants are causing his property value to decrease regardless of how much he has to pay the city in taxes. The building was spray painted along the side by his own tenants showing their "territory" which initiated the violence that occurred that weekend the 16 year old was killed. That 16 year old was known by the police to be a proud gang member living in his building.

will50 building imspectors

Here is a fellow that replied to me that he doesn't care what I think. That was obvious from his first post and ok with me as well. We defeat the ignorant by living well . Has will50 really done his research ? Is he aware that the building in question was in court. Further is he aware the city did want that building demolished. The inspectors do not have that power. That power comes from a judge and if...

Here is a fellow that replied to me that he doesn't care what I think. That was obvious from his first post and ok with me as well. We defeat the ignorant by living well . Has will50 really done his research ? Is he aware that the building in question was in court. Further is he aware the city did want that building demolished. The inspectors do not have that power. That power comes from a judge and if the judge doesn't issue the order it doesn't happen. Throwing around comments about people Taking money was not well researched either. Chicago probably has one of the most watched by federal government agencies in the nation keeping them honest whether by choice or forces to be that way that's the way it is. So negative. Hope your life gets better will50. I'm sure you will have something Ryde to say to me. Have at it make yourself feel good. I have talked way more than I have cared to you will get no more responses from me
