    This is the best news I have read all year. Residents have called the cops for YEARS on these guys for the illegal, intimidating, and destructive acts that they have been inflicting upon the neighborhood. The removal of this gang crew from the streets has made an immediate change for our community. It is too bad that it took a killing to bring these guys to justice, but better late than never.

    This makes me think that maybe god is listening to our prayers.

    Now if god will influence the judge to give real jail time to the accomplices, that would be miraculous, and would help protect our community in the years to come.

    I know that my brother got one form the city when he installed his meter but that was a pilot program. I also know that these have been growing in popularity for some time and that even the rebate programs are drying up. It seems the most economical way to get one is build it yourself or you can purchase one from a cost of $20 to $125 for the typical 55 gallon variety. I looked on Craigs list and found these which are pretty reasonable and in that range.https://chicago.craigslist.org/search/grd?query=rain+barrel - actually, I am thinking of getting one myself.
