What do residents of the 11th District think?

Commander Glen Evans was charged with serious misconduct. Did he do a good job in the ward?

  • Taj's page are envirnoment dose not define who we are.

    I've tried on several occasion to have a sit down with meeting him but to no avail.
    After there was a killing he made himself readily available via email. I felt that was a good step in the right direction.
    So to answer your question I'm split half and half.

    I heard from trusted sources who have an interest in making neighborhoods safer that this guy worked hard. Who do you think wanted to take him down? Sometimes those who do a good job have enemies. Some want the status to stay quo, which is why we have our problems in the first place.

    On the flip side if laws, protocols, proceedures were violated; those need to be looked at.

    I've also heard that he was about cleaning up our street. Of course when you are use to doing things one way and someone new come in to change things it always causes a problem. Or in this case a few enemies.
    Somehow I'm incline to believe that someone within...

    Somehow I'm incline to believe that someone within the department wanted him gone. Why would something that happen a year ago surface now and DNA found on the gun? Protocol is you must clean your gun regularly.
    To me it sounds like the Commander was about to clean house and they knew it!
    Which meant a lot of crooket police officers as well drug dealers were about to be locked up.

Who would like to see Inspiration Kitchens on Lake have internet/wifi?

There was discussion earlier in the summer about having an internet cafe in EGP. I see that there are grants for internet. It appears that Garfield Park and some NFPs are the only ones that have this. Perhaps someone could see if Inspiration Kitchens could also get this free internet/wifi. They are a NFP also.

Anybody got anything to say on this topic? THANKS.

  • Beyond the cremonial unveiling of a statue of Paul Laurence Dunbar,what is going on with the future educational curriculum of the underserved, disadvantaged predominantly AFRICAN-AMERICAN students who attend this revitalized urban high school campus in the historic Bronzeville community?

  • Certainly there must be some innovative writers workshops featuring the literary contributions of writers like Paul Lawrence Dunbar and other literary giants of the Black Cultural Renaissance that took place in Bronzeville! :-)

    In East side and North side neighborhoods kids are safe enough that they can walk to/from school safely. It is only in neighborhoods where policing is poor that parent's have to walk their kids to school because of the crime/gang/drug problems.

    In East side and North side neighborhoods kids are safe enough that they can walk to/from school safely. It is only in neighborhoods where policing is poor that parent's have to walk their kids to school because of the crime/gang/drug problems.

    This is a policing issue not a good parenting issue. Why should parents in our neighborhood have to walk the kids when parents in other neighborhoods don't even have to worry that something might happen to their kids.

    I am not going to let my neighbors take the brunt of blame for bad things happening here. There is plenty to go around for everyone. If everyone just did a little more to care and learn the right moves...we could have better progress.

    Currently there are very few that go to the records, look, study, make a plan...and get positive things to happen.

    So who is the problem? The liquor seller or the liquor user? The drug seller or the drug user? Racism is a bad thing all the way around.

    There would be NO STORES at all here if some one didn't come and open a business. Blacks don't open business, whites don't open business...who is left? Some immigrant that had a harder time in the country they left that we bombed...than they have dealing with gang/drug people in our neighborhood.

    Remember...the cost of government spending by city hall is in the billions...maybe 6 billion. Where is our fair share? Where are the jobs? Where is the Safety? Where is the GOOD education for our kids...Where is the economic development?

    We didn't get our share. Who didn't give it to us...what color were they? What color were the politicians?

    A small nobody store owner in our neighborhood didn't deprive us of anything. It was our government that failed us; that is who to blame.

    Most importantly, the girl was able to escape! That's an answer to prayer!
