Mob of Delinquents

I hate to see young black kids in trouble. But there is only so much one can do. I have a 4yr old child at home and i cannot afford to see him hurt. There is a mob of children who has been throwing things up at my window. What if the glass shatters on my son while he is playing. Why should he suffer because people can't teach there kids good sense? I'm sorry this starts at home!! Don't...

I hate to see young black kids in trouble. But there is only so much one can do. I have a 4yr old child at home and i cannot afford to see him hurt. There is a mob of children who has been throwing things up at my window. What if the glass shatters on my son while he is playing. Why should he suffer because people can't teach there kids good sense? I'm sorry this starts at home!! Don't get me wrong, I'm aware of the plight of the black Community. With our neighborhood under regentification they are pushing guns and drugs in. So that means half the parents are strung out and the other half must work long and hard to make ends meet. But the end result is that the ppl aint raising their children. The parents dont know what their kids are doing or who they are doing it with. But I know for a fact that when is comes to providing for your child and raising them you dont have to choose between the 2. So that aside i still got to keep my child safe. I will be getting these kids on camera and turning it over to the police. I will be pressing charges against parents and children alike If my child or property is damaged. I have at least 2 kids on camera vandalizing property. And i will keep recording.

7th Ward Aldermanic Candidates Debate

Meet the candidates for alderman in the 7th ward: http://ow.ly/HrYAC

  • Gigi Calumet Heights

    I really wish that Calumet Heights was not in the same ward with South Shore and Jeffrey Manor. We don't share a lot of same the issues that those areas have and because of that, we get very little attention. I went to the appointed alderman about an issue that was going on in Calumet Heights and her answer was "I thought it was nice around there" and I got no action from her.

  • I have not commented in awhile but I felt compelled to after observing the aldermanic debate. The one encounter that I had with Ms. Holmes she seemed to be a tad bit rude and standoffish. This was during time when she was replacing sandy Jackson. This encounter showed me that she clearly did not want my vote and I will keep that inmind during this election.
