    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!

Crime in East Garfield Park

Anyone have anything to say?

  • Marcus de la fleur Proud Lawndale resident

    I heard a really interesting interview on the radio with historian Peniel Joseph talking about the civil rights movement then and now, all in the context of the Ferguson events. Here is a link. It is worth-it-while to listen to the interview:

    Crowd sourcing can probably do a better job than most leadership can provide in the worst of Chicago neighborhoods. Failures in leadership has been a critical component of Chicagos' past 50 years. One party rule has failed to uplift those in poverty out of poverty. Leadership has only fostered and institutionalized ghettos on the south and west sides of Chicago while developing opulence for tourists who don't live here.

    OMG take a walk on MIchigan Ave...hear the foreign voices as they shop till they drop. Personally I love cosmopolitan and international. What I don't love is that access to simple things in life..safety, jobs, decent housing...does not exist in the majority of the Chicago map for residents who live here and suffer from the grinding poverty.

    Insiders have failed to address our serious issues for 5 decades. Outsiders will probably do a better job because they have fresh eyes and are not biased and prejudiced as Chicagoans are.

    Again, this is not to denegrate politicians who have done a great job to service their constituents. Drive their wards and you can see the fruits of their efforts. Drive the wards of the vast ghetto wastelands and judge the politicans in those districts on the merit of their work. It is an easy test, yet many wards still maintain their blight despite union labor being paid to do this poor job.

Andrea Zopp and Carlos Azcoitia will share their perspectives as members of the Chicago Board of Education, and Carol R.

This will be a very lively discussion, and I encourage you to attend if you can.
