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

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)....!"

It would be great to get speed bumps on 59th street between Austin and Narragansett! Cars are always racing through to beat the train in either end and almost hit you as they rush by! The 2 new stop signs don't help! Cars always blow through them!
