    CBS plz do more investigative reporting. A tip about the Heroin Hut in Garfield Park yielded a news crew. You aired, and the next day the Heroin Hut that had been in a Chicago park was removed. City Hall won't listen to neighborhood complaints. BUT if it hits the airwaves, all of a sudden they are ON THE SPOT.

    THANKS for the Heroin Hut story that got it removed for a city park the next day!

    Plz do more efforts like this. It is effective. TRANSPARENCY is good.
