Another store closing

Well they closed another store. I guess it was because someone got shot at the 81st and exchange store. It wasn't the store's fault someone got shot. Now the same people that were shooting at each other have only 2 stores they can go to close by. Hmmm, I wonder if this will lead to them shooting at the next store.

  • But that's the police's job not the business. The thing all these places have in common, is that money is being spent. That's what attracts those the people standing outside. They are trying to make a living. Whether it is legal or not I don't see any businesses up and...

    But that's the police's job not the business. The thing all these places have in common, is that money is being spent. That's what attracts those the people standing outside. They are trying to make a living. Whether it is legal or not I don't see any businesses up and down 79th street that are hiring. Or 87th or 67th so let's not assume that the people outside the store are losers. And then again there are different types of people, but not all are trouble makers. Let's not look down on those less fortunate than ourselves. Irregardless I need to have a store open that I can get food and drink from.

    Perhaps I did not make myself clear...I am not speaking on those less fortunate Jay.Ii am speaking on those who have a gun and plan on using it to harm those who will stop them from selling their drugs...and not the drugs that are being sold INSIDE a store...and since...

    Perhaps I did not make myself clear...I am not speaking on those less fortunate Jay.Ii am speaking on those who have a gun and plan on using it to harm those who will stop them from selling their drugs...and not the drugs that are being sold INSIDE a store...and since my truck was hit by stray bullet from those making a living in front of a corner store, I feel that I can use the word looser, since I am not able to use the word I would like. As for who job it is ....it is ALL of our job to create a better environment for our neighborhoods...but hey...you can't fault people for being scared of being killed when standing up for a cause can we...including myself... we are human so we are going to pick and choose our battles....this one however is a challenge that even the police are scared to tackle. As for your store issues...unless you were directly impacted by the closing of Dominick's in your neighborhood...sadly, your area just returned back to which it was prior to that store opening...another grocery dessert in another black community in dire need of a grocery store..

Sunday night violence

does anyone have any ideas what's going on in South Shore about 20 police cars blew down 79th Street. It started about 11 30 or so now there are helicopters and emergency vehicles. I just wanted to know if anyone had any idea what went on down there .I am feeling really concerned for my neighborhood and it's police officers.

  • Dr. Magic Stuck Here In South Shore Since 2011

    79th street is a total mess. From the Lakefront until at least Kedzie...

  • According to Eric from Reclaiming South Shore for all, there was gunfire at 80th and Escanaba and 73rd and SS.

Who knows a crooked Alderman?

As the city of Chicago’s legislative inspector general, Faisal Khan is paid to spend his days poking into alleged wrongdoing by aldermen and their staffs.

Link to Story: http://www.suntimes.com/news/brown/14400611-452/huge-salary-for-inspector.html

  • Mr Uncle Lived in Chicago since 1997

    I've come to learn that Faisal Khan and his staff are truly committed to their jobs, but seem to have hands tied behind back by lack of funding and oversight from Board of Ethics cronies from Daley admin. Seriously OLIG needs true independence. Applause for the fine actors playing role of Board of Ethics. Doesn't help matters when the older female reporters in local media who likely knew FDR go bang out a negative story on Khan office. Rest assured all of us lemmings eventually catch on.
