Please clear snow and ice from sidewalks.

Most sidewalks were full of ice this week. If there is a melt of snow one day and you see the temperatures will drop over night the sidewalks will have ice. When I try to walk on these sidewalks and try not to fall I think of the people that live in these homes that didn't bother to clear their sidewalks. Think of your neighbors, the kids on their way to school and the delivery people. It only takes a few minutes to clear your sidewalk. There are many bad sidewalks with cracks and dug up in the neighborhood. So add ice and snow and it makes it that much worse.

    "Placing trash on someone else's property in the form of a fake city notice because you don't like the conditions of the sidewalk in front of their house is also wrong"

    Talk to the city who prints them out for People if you think its wrong.

    "Have they ever ticketed a property owner? "

    I couldnt find any hard info on the last two years but i did find this info.

    "In 2014, NBC5 reported that over a two-year period, the city issued just 72 tickets

    In 2014, 226 citations were issued

    The 57 tickets issued since the start of 2015 appear to be an increase from previous years."

    My issue is with people who dont want you depositing a bag of dog poop in "their" city owned garbage cans because its the law yet neglect the law about shoveling. If i left dog poop on their lawn they all of a sudden would care about laws. If You want others to care about laws that only affect you negatively you should consider what laws affect others negatively when you fail to follow them.

    Mute you don't know my relationships with those prostitutes, your just assuming I'm the general public.

    As far as your sister it sounds like she was forced into prostitution by her life circumstances which does not make it a free will choice. If she had a home and a family and a job would she choose to suck d*@k for a living? I don't think so.

    It sounds like you know everything there is to know about criminals and how to handle crime in the city - I mean who would ever think that pimps carry guns or use violence or dope, or that your sisters clients aren't involved in guns or dope. I think you watched Pretty Woman way too often. But you know better than everyone because your sister was a prostitute so I defer to you on all crime matters.

    "As far as your sister it sounds like she was forced into prostitution by her life circumstances which does not make it a free will choice. "

    Sometimes our life circumstances are due to bad choices. Thats all im saying.

    "If she had a home and a family and a job would she choose to suck d*@k for a living?"

    She had a home and a family and a job. She left them all. Some people arent cut out for or fond of rules and regulations and 9-5 life.

    "It sounds like you know everything there is to know about criminals and how to handle crime in the city "

    Na but i do know not every prostitute is not a victim of human trafficking and i could use your same justificatiins for claiming these prostitutes as victims to claim this man in the article is also a victim. Poor guy probably doesnt have a home family or job skills and might be a poor addict. Will we determine hes forced into a life of criminal activity by his life circumstances or is he just a criminal?

    "who would ever think that pimps carry guns or use violence or dope,"

    I guess the same people who think prostitutes dont

    "I think you watched Pretty Woman way too often"

    The one who didnt like me assuming about them is making assumptions about me now. Typical eb hypocrite. I saw it once. Very unrealistic.

    "But you know better than everyone because your sister was a prostitute "

    I just know as much as anyone else who knows a prostitute. Each one has a different story. The assumption that these women were victims of human trafficking is just as valid as an assumption that they werent. Both unconfirmed assumptions.

Man Charged with Promoting Prostitution after...

Man Charged with Promoting Prostitution after Sheriff’s Police, Homeland Security Investigation Found Former Brothel Site Resumed Operations COOK COUNTY, IL – An investigation by the Cook County Sheriff’s Police Vice Unit and U.S. Department of Homeland Security led to the arrest of a 25-year-old Chicago man for promoting prostitution at a location that was previously found to have operated as a brothel, Sheriff Thomas J. Dart announced today. Investigators learned that an apartment in the 3900 block of W. Lawrence Avenue in Chicago had resumed its illegal operation. The apartment was one of three locations where Sheriff’s Police and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) executed search warrants on June 27 after investigators learned those sites were operating as brothels. Two men were arrested then at that location, one for promoting prostitution and another for patronizing a prostitute. On Dec. 7, an undercover officer went to the location and made an arrangement with a man, identified as Jesus Guerrero, to have sex with one of the women there for money. After the “deal” was made, Sheriff’s Police and HSI investigators executed a search warrant at the apartment. Two women, including the one with whom the arrangement was made, were located inside. Both women were provided victim services. Guerrero was not found in the apartment. He was located a few blocks away in a cab and was taken into custody. Guerrero was charged with two counts of promoting prostitution and received an I-bond during a hearing Sunday at the George N. Leighton Criminal Courthouse. Sheriff Dart reminds the public that the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty by the government in a court of law.
