    Hyde Park neighbors say violent crime is on the rise

  • Crime is on the rise and our politicians are fiddling away. Preckwinkle, Foxx, Dart and Evans are responsible with their new plan to empty the jails and the common folk are under siege as a result.
    Progressive politics at it's worse!

    "Preckwinkle, Foxx, Dart and Evans are responsible"

    I respond: Yes you are correct on this Joe.

    Hey Joe - are you interested in using some of the effective tactics hard core Leftists use to punish their Conservative opponents? What effective tactic is called "Doxing" this entails publishing the person details of where their opponents:

    Live
    Work
    Hang Out

    They work to get their opponents fired from their jobs, get their family and friends to disown them and generally work to ruin the lives of their opponents. Leftists did this to anyone who contributed to the California Traditional Marriage ballot initiative. We could do the same with Foxx, Dart and Evans. It's important to take strong steps discouraging any violent or illegal activities, but there is nothing illegal or immortal about letting Chicago crime victims know where Foxx, Dart and Evans work and sleep and where they enjoy their wealthy, cushy lives while us regular citizens have to deal with the terror.

Relocating to 5900 block of S. Prairie

Hello everyone. I am thinking of relocating my family to the Washington Park neighborhood around the 5900 block of So. Prairie. I am encouraged by the Obama library going in a few blocks to the east, the golf course among other things. I asked the Aldermans office(Cochran)about any plans for this immediate area but their response was “I don’t know, I’ll have to do some digging” which tells me there is nothing planned. Does anyone know anything that may help me out? Thanks in advance!

    Yes that’s what I am thinking. There is vacant land across the street& the city owns lots on either side of the 3 rowhouses. I am trying to find out what the plans are but hit a wall. Exciting potential - but scary too!

  • I wonder if any of those empty lots are designated for the new 'Parade of Homes' Initiative? That would be a huge plus for you as those are going up as market-rate, single family homes. I see what you're saying though, there's quite a lot of unknowns for this exact...

    I wonder if any of those empty lots are designated for the new 'Parade of Homes' Initiative? That would be a huge plus for you as those are going up as market-rate, single family homes. I see what you're saying though, there's quite a lot of unknowns for this exact location, especially given all the empty parcels. If I was your realtor, I'd probably honestly tell you to look for something a little closer to the Lake and/or the Obama center. Or, even a bit more north of here, closer to the near-south, Bronzeville/Douglas areas. I realize that may be tough at a 100K price-point though.

    Yes, I think it’s a great idea to organize! Yes we all know most of the politicians are worthless, so let’s do it! We simply cannot wait or expect for politicians to solve our neighborhood issues. Yes that’s what they’re paid to do and most of us feel we’re not getting served.

    how about the 70 plus cars broken into between Ellis and Ingelside on 53rd street since last November. Everyone who has parked on the diagonal park near Kozminski and north on the same street. Has seen cars broken into every 3 days. My fiance contacted the Alderman and Police. His car was one of those. We have observed this since November but its been going on much longer than that. I have pictures up on NextDoor. The heavy snow storm blocked most of the driver seeing the glass. Then sometime last week somebody swept away some of the glass. Its a mystery.

  • We all need to tank Kimm Foxx for creating this problem. She cares more about the criminals than the community. She should the Public Defender not the Chief Prosecutor.

  • jaye els Returned to Hyde Park Kenwood

    Yep. also my former Kenwood alderman Tim Evans shares much of the blame. These two are practicing catch and release of basically all criminals short of murder and even with murder the conviction rate is ~ 12%. Chicago's punks, criminals are literally getting away with murder!
