Bronzeville Dog Park Article in South Side Weekly

If you haven't seen it, the South Side Weekly did a nice write-up about efforts in Bronzeville to bring more dog parks to the South Side.

http://southsideweekly.com/barcing-up-the-right-tree/

    BARCing up the Right Tree
    Dogs on the South Side shouldn't need to drive all over the city to get out more and exercise." When Benjamin Gerhold tells me this in an email, it makes for a funny image-a poodle in a coupe, perhaps-but it strikes upon an issue that has long gone unaddressed.

Chicago's Gun Control Laws - Not Enforced

Lots of Chicago and National Lib Dems have been virtue signaling over the issue of gun control after yet another terrible schools shooting, mass killing. Former Chicago Public School director and Secretary of Education Arnie Duncan (never went to a public school, taught in a public school, sends his children to expensive private school) has called for a national mass walkout of students until strict gun control laws are passed.

Lots of Chicago and National Lib Dems have been virtue signaling over the issue of gun control after yet another terrible schools shooting, mass killing. Former Chicago Public School director and Secretary of Education Arnie Duncan (never went to a public school, taught in a public school, sends his children to expensive private school) has called for a national mass walkout of students until strict gun control laws are passed.

But the reality here in our Chicago is that existing gun control laws are often just not enforced.

Take the case of Daryl Williams who was caught with a stolen hand gun that he bought on the street (he admitted that) he was firing off the gun in our street, caught by the cops. But Chicago judge Stephanie Miller - champion of our county's "affordable bail" movement let Williams go free on recognizance bond (not even electric monitoring) and sure enough Williams proceeds to get another illegal hand gun and..... murder someone! This terrible, representable Chicago murder case was not covered by the mainstream media but was covered by the excellent Boys down crime blog CWBChicago

    Prosecutors: Gun Offender Was Free On Recognizance Bond When He Got Another Gun And Killed A Man
    When Daryl Williams stepped in front of Cook County Judge Stephanie Miller on Wednesday, it wasn't the first time the two had seen each other. Back in November, Miller-a champion of the county's "affordable bail" movement-let Williams go free on a recognizance bond after he was charged with possessing a stolen handgun on the South Side.

    With all the complaints about how lenient on criminals...Remember Preckwinkle got to run again on your vote...and you know darn will Foxx will stay..

    She and Kim Foxx think too many black and brown "thug criminals" are in jail. I guess it makes them both feel like they being picked on. BOO HOO! It's the Lawbiding citizens who are being picked on and off. In the era (60-70's) I grew up in, these punks were given 2 choices...JAIL or the ARMY ! Color was not an option.. Judges then, didn't pussyfoot around. But then too, Chicago wasn't out of control either. Old man Daley didn't put up with it PERIOD!..CPD knows there are gang issues... I remember when CPD sat down with these leaders and hashed it out. Seems every punk walking our streets has a gun..

    Preckwinkle and Foxx need to wake up.... And wake up fast. CPD seems to be doing their job at catching these thugs as Preckwinkle and Foxx play their games with releasing them back onto our streets only to commit more crimes...While they both say they are tough on crime.. which is laughable....

  • Why do liberal, left, progressive types, who tout "gun safety", bemoan the cost of incarceration? For the sake of public safety, those are tax dollars well spent. Besides the emotional cost endured, what is the physical cost of funeral related expenses? I'm thinking that the personal loss of a loved one from a repeat offender would change the mindset of those who whine about the cost of putting a criminal behind bars.

Crime blogs CWBChicago and Second City Cop report teen mobs again attacking bicyclist and pedestrians on the North Lakefront path this Thursday May 31st).

http://www.cwbchicago.com/2018/06/streeterville-groups-of-offenders.html

"A group of teens was seen pushing people into Lake Michigan near Navy Pier Thursday night. The reports follow reported mayhem along beaches and Downtown streets last weekend as roving groups of teenagers caused trouble, forcing Chicago Police officers to try to corral their movements.

The group of about 10 teens was seen pushing people into the lake in the 600 block of North Lake Shore Drive, according to Chicago Police. Downtown Ald. Brian Hopkins (2nd) said witnesses described the group of teens catching four different victims off-guard between the hours of 11 p.m. and midnight Thursday. "

This makes 3 out of the last 5 weekends that pedestrians were attacked by mobs on North Michigan Avenue & the north Lakefront path. Lots of evidence indicates these flash mobs originate from 47th and State Street Red Line - the mobs were organized on Social media. Why haven't local law enforcement identified the mob organizers. One suburban young man was in critical condition after having his skull crushed. The Chicago mainstream media and CPD chief Eddie Johnson have covered up these terrible crimes and tried to spin this as just teens of all races and ethnic groups and classes causing typical teenage trouble. NO. This #&*$@# has to stop. Who's doing this from our neighborhoods. Our Hyde Park/Kenwood/South Shore/Bronzeville communities have excellent political and law enforcement resources. Let's use them now to identify the leaders of these wilding flash mob criminal attacks.

Sun Times Columnist Mary Mitchell has stood out being one of the few Chicago media voices being honest about these teen thug attacks:

Segregation in Chicago won't be solved while anti-"gentrification" sentiment flourishes.

The Metropolitan Planning Council recently published a report of 25 steps we can take to address the segregation epidemic in Chicago.

Know what's funny? Or, maybe I should say, sad? Nowhere in the report do they address the fact that in today's political/social climate, when 'whites' move into any one given area on the South and/or West sides...they're not welcomed as "segregation busters". No, they're more often called 'gentrifiers'.

No, they're more often called 'gentrifiers'.

It's the new trendy bigotry...and its been cultivated and allowed to fester to the point where, even local alderman have come out amongst the ranks of the Chicago machine to decry its atrocities: "How dare white professionals think they can move into one of these areas!" Think that's hyperbolic? Look at some of the anti-development ordinances being proposed by these political 'leaders' in traditionally underserved communities. Wake up friends. They want to keep these areas economically depressed and artificially deflated to secure votes of their own prosperity - not yours. The first black POTUS can't even open his community center without legions of protests and controversy from the "where's mine!" crowd ... and we think segregation is going to be busted by a few talking points on educational policy and equity?

Nah. This is a top-down epidemic. Years of race-baiting and pandering have created this cultural cancer. Race relations have gotten worse, not better. And this disparity of equity has been created, curated and maintained by the Chicago machine. Let's not forget that.

Tough conversations and new ideas are what will solve these issues. We'll end segregation when we celebrate our individual strengths vs obsessing over our petty differences. And they are just that...beyond petty. White, black, we're all the same. But we can't fight REAL racism when we're too busy chasing fake boogeymen.

    @agentaaw - Because no one wants to admit that part of that change needs to happen from within ... much easier to blame everyone else vs have a serious conversation or any type of real introspection.

    I'll give you a small, anecdotal example:

    Trevor Noah was interviewing Jason Reynolds regarding his latest book a few months back. At a certain part in the interview, Noah quips how "black kids don't read books", and how a black audience member told him "I can't let my friends know I read books". Reynolds' direct reply was: "Black kids only like things that are cool."

    But, what really dropped my jaw to the floor was how easily both men seemingly glossed over these extremely poignant observation(s). "No, wait!!!! That's an important conversation to have!!", I found myself internalizing towards the television. But, of course, that larger conversation never came because they'd probably get crucified from the left for delving any deeper, or lose core fans for being "culturally insensitive" considering the polarizing climate we're currently in.

    Now, is this a "racist" observation? No, it's a cultural one.

    As I said, this is a small, anecdotal example. But all one needs to do is extrapolate these small examples out into the much broader cultural sphere and we can see what devastating consequences they have. But again, no one wants to talk about it. Usually, it's "racist" to even mention it. Everyone (and I do mean everyone) wants to just bury their heads in the sand: It's not a problem that black kids don't read, or that they're ashamed to look like they enjoy learning in front of their peers. Or, even the fact that over 70% are born into single parent households. All that is completely trivial! The biggest problem facing black kids in 2018 is "racism."

    At least, that's what everyone wants you to believe.

Local pols and police spokesmen have been covering up this terrible flash mob, wilding attack, trying to spin it off as just teens acting a little rowdy or worse the police lied and said it was a case of two groups fighting. No, it was a case of a young suburban man and his girl friend coming off the Oak Street Beach and getting jumped and nearly or maybe even murdered by a large group of 25-50 South Side punks who organized these attacks on Social Media. We should set up an award for information that leads to the arrest, prosecute and severe punishment of these dangerous criminals who do these violent attacks for fun.

Professor Hill argues that Chicago's criminal street gangs have created fiefdoms where they are extorting regular citizens offering "protection" from their own robbers, rapists and killers. He is calling on President Trump to bring in Federal law enforcement including armed troops.

"We teach, as we should, the values of self-reliance and personal responsibility. But those virtues needs a clean space to thrive and flourish, a place where an innocent 13-year-old Hispanic girl trying to earn some extra money as a babysitter is exempt from having to negotiate with extortionist gang-bangers who extract half her earnings from her under the pretense of protecting her life and her virginity. In Chicago, some neighborhoods are overseen by gangs that ought to be viewed as operators of terror cells, nihilistic institutional organizations that invade the sphere of civilized life. These gangs have declared themselves above the law. "

Whether you agree or disagree with Dr. Hill, please pass this around and encourage others in our city and in places of power (Washington DC) to honestly look at the crime situation in our city. What should we do?
