What's more of a concern Archer Heights, a few homeless people or a murder of a mother of three?

"Charge man in killing of missing mom

"...confessed to the killing of 30-year-old Joyce ...Cluchey...in the 4900 block of South Keeler. Cesar Cono-Olvera surrendered to authorities...relatives...said they discovered human remains in their garage.

To the Archer Heights civies/politicos and their voting block:

"It stuns me that the priorities of some Archer Heights residents --including a few AHCA 'town fathers'-- is SO skewed!
In getting all up-in-arms over a small group of homeless men trying to survive on the mean streets around Archer Ave. and Kedvale (citing that some resident's kids going to school shouldn't be subjected to the sight of these homeless people).

Meanwhile, a confessed murderer--of a mother of three children (who was assaulted, murdered and stuffed in a bag left to rot in the local murderer's uncle's garage for two months!). That he has lived nearby right off Archer and Keeler all this time your children are/were walking to school.
(Now, I'm sure you wouldn't want your kids subjected to the likes of this demon
passing your kids on the street?!)

And, there's a lot more similar horrendous crime and criminals (shootings, stabbings, prostitution, armed robberies, child abuse and abduction, etc.) going on in & around Archer Heights....

Far worse to deal with than a few homeless men struggling to get by (even "the one in the wheelchair" as some complaining resident so nastily put it).

So, shame, shame on you folks! Your upcoming Tues day public library CAPS meeting should be about all this terrible violent crime happening in & around Archer Heights. Not picking on a few down-on-their-luck men....

Wanna do something pro-active (instead of complaining at meetings)-- help the homeless (teach your children a Civics lesson; & a moral lesson in compassion)....!"

GUNS

I am a retired Cop, in the United States , we have 300,000 Police Officers and 11,000,000 hard core gang members . It's not the Guns that's the problem , you have people today that should not be free to kill. London, England has more killing then New York City, all killed with KNIFES not GUNS, Bad people are Just bad and should be put away for life.https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2018/04/03/londons-murder-rate-higher-than-new-york-citys/480860002/

    The problem is the justice system. Reinstate the death penalty with no plea bargaining. You kill a person you lose your life immediately. We have gotten to lenient and the criminals know it.
