    Might I also add, how nice that they described the folks as something other than "three males". At least we can be on the lookout, although any further details (height, weight, age etc) would be good also.

    All one bedroom, one bath apartments but none are in Humboldt Park. If you are looking for better prices, you are welcome in Humboldt park.

  • d3 NoHo

    Are you welcome, though? There's a lot of anti gentrification tension there

  • RAKARWOWSKI RETIRED CITY WORKER, CLEANING UP HUMBOLDT PARK

    I and my new neighbors welcome all. That anti gentrification tension is probably why Humboldt Park rents are lower. If you check the news, many neighbors have started to put an end to the violence on their own. We are going after stores and buildings that attract gangs and violent criminals. Get rid of problem stores and buildings, you stop the anti gentrification movement. Join us in making Humboldt Park a great place to raise a family again. Together we can.

    Chicago man freed from prison, given $25 million. He spent his second chance rebuilding his old gang
    The top was down on Thaddeus Jimenez's shiny Mercedes convertible and opera music blared on the stereo as he and a gang associate drove around Chicago's Northwest Side looking for someone to shoot. Just three years earlier, Jimenez had won a staggering $25 million verdict for his wrongful murder conviction.
    http://www.chicagotribune.com

  • He has 8 more years to go in jail for federal gun charges , but would not be surprised if he's out by 2020 for good behavior, then he'll face state charges for shooting the other pillar of the community whom I'm betting will refuse to testify against him for fear and he'll get paroled for another 5 years or so until he does something stupid again.

  • Fortunately his 'victim' is suing BJ for his last pennies and will be giving sworn testimony that I'm guessing can be used by prosecutors?
