    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.

    "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.
