What is the world coming to??/Digital Divide

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/theres-city-china-own-street-124936124.html

Maybe our Mayor would be interested in doing this for the Michigan Ave Crowd.

Seems there are so many pedestrians bumping into each other that some cities are making "special" pedestrian lanes. Do we need them more than bicycle lanes?

Any ideas on what to do if you are racially profiled? and then cuffed and your van searched? Stopped for taillight which was out, asked what he was doing in the neighborhood? where he was going? blablabla. This happened to my boyfriend who visits my house nearly every day. He was coming to pick me up to take me out to dinner. Wearing a suit and tie. He was asked to stand right in front of their camera. He got their plate and car number. On our way out, we spotted them, strangely, driving through Humboldt Park. Not their district? Pulled up next to them, they saw us, we waved, and smiled and the passenger cop said "have a nice date" and drove off. So. They knew that we knew their car and them. Pardon the long post. Please advise.

  • robin in WRP misanthrope

    I would start with the ACLU

  • First Defense Legal Aid deals with this kind of stuff. They also have a free police custody hotline.

Plastic bottle light/social entrepreneur

There is poverty all over the world. In some places social entrepreneurs solve problems and help improve the lives of those living in abject poverty. What are we doing in East Garfield Park to improve the standards in the neighborhood? What kind of social entrepreneur can help us change the neighborhood from one of the highest crime neighborhoods and neighborhood with very few businesses?

Does anyone know of successful social entrepeneurship going on here in EGP? We have alot of NFP garden stuff but that reallly is hobby kind of stuff. We need serious problems to be addressed with true innovation vs the decades of failed projects the government sponsors. Examples: war on drugs, war on poverty, no child left behind....NONE of those programs have solved the problems of Chicago's worst slums.

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 Committed to helping others.

    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 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.

  • gpblight 15 Yr East Garfield Resident

    The neighborhood is significantly quieter since this commander took over. Ike Sims housing project behind us is quieter than any of athe last 17 years. It is quite a change for residents to turn in information and get service. It has not been like here in the previous 16 plus years under other commanders. One wonders..with the violence being so high...what the real motives are.

    If anyone is prive to that info please let us know so we can understand better.

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.
