How does this happen in America!!!

This story was shared by a coworker this morning. A mother that is doomed to die due to her illegal status. Her children will have no home or a place once she is gone. Her children are half Mexican and half Puerto Rican and father absent due to her disease... Unfuckenbelievable!!! Please help Mari with any donations or please attend Sept 21 at 12pm for a gathering on her behalf. Mari is currently being evicted because she is in her last stages of cancer and cannot work. All I can think about is what happens to the kids!!! Jesus!

  • This is truly sad, does she have other family members they might be able to stay with??

  • MakeChicagoSafe Please keep our Chicago Safe

    I have no idea but I have started acquiring more information about this unfortunate woman. There really needs to be better laws put in place to protect and secure children. I know I can't save the world but if I can make a difference in any child's life I want to. And as far as the father living somewhere in Humboldt park with his new girlfriend, he should be thrown in prison for being a dead beat!!!

Dog running loose, Barry & Laramie

Traffic was stopped about 8:30am this morning for a scared dog in the intersection of Barry & Laramie. He was reddish brown, medium size, maybe a boxer? He finally got across Laramie and I thought he was going to go down Laramie so I was going to try and overtake him and then pull my car over and try to get him but then he ran down Barry and I could no longer make that turn. He was going fast and looked scared.

Loud Band

I'm on th 2600 block of Lavergne, anyone else hear this loud drumming and band playing 2nite and Saturday night? Police called but no response, they never came, so now what? We tried talking to the neighbor but nothing......

  • robin in WRP misanthrope

    If the neighbor is a renter, you can contact the building owner.

  • Marty92 4- yr. resident

    Send an email to the alderman and the Police Sergeant

  • I live on the 4900 block of Cornelia and I could hear it a lot more at the beginning of summer but not so much lately. Maybe cuz my air is on more now and my windows are closed... Not sure what to do about it, I can't even pinpoint where it's coming from
