Bahooey for sympathy. There is NO DISPLACEMENT in EGP. We are 70% a vacant lot or neighborhood

Pander, Pander, Pander....push hot buttons to gain sympathy and support.

Seems only the anti gentrification people get airtime and no one talks about economics, the tax base, crime and violence in contest of what goes on in a destroyed neighborhood. 2/3rds of Chicago map is a destroyed neighborhood with vacancy rates so high criminals rule the streets. Turn on the news daily and hear about murder, shooting, carjacking with the highest number in the neighborhoods anti gentrifiers want to stay...

Change aka progress occurs every moment in the day in every country in the world. Preparing to change is crucial to ones' survival as progress wipes out jobs. It is progress not China killing US jobs. Already the $15 per hour folk have wiped out some percentage of kiosk fast food jobs. McDonalds already has them as do some other fast food restaurants. Cars wipped out the horse and buggy. Electricity wiped out Gas lights. The list goes on forever of how progress displaces.

The solution is to KEEP UP WITH THE TIMES. Get an education or training in a job that will pay a decent wage. Buy in a disinvested/destroyed neighborhood and ride the profit train for 20-30 years. If you are lucky u can make a million bucks. What a happy event that is for some I know who rode that train and could cash out at retirement.

There should be MORE on how to survive a 70% vacant neighborhood changing to a fully occupied neighborhood. There should be instructions on how to get in on this opportunity. Pitfalls should be explained. Benefits should be explained.

    'There Isn't A Just Housing Choice': How We've Enabled The Pains Of Gentrification
    Gentrification is no longer something that just happens in low-income neighborhoods. As the phenomenon displaces communities of color, from Inglewood to Washington, D.C., "gentrification" has been co-opted to include food and culture as well. So, what does the loaded term really mean? According to urban sociologist John Schlichtman, gentrification cannot happen without disinvestment.

    When someone wants to push a hot button they say gentrification.

    The truth is that URBAN RENEWAL is important!

    Chicago does not develop the city in any kind of fair and just way. Resources are not allocated in a fair way. The rich get richer.

    Did u see the Catholic Charities Deacon Tom Roberts and MGM CBS special on the news? Search john Blackstone,CBS and u can see it.

    Looks like MGM is joining Starbucks in systematizing food waste! It is uplifting.

    I deliver Whole Foods Church donations and Breakthrough donations to Seniors in EGP. They Love it! Trying foods they never would have even known existed is part of the "surprise" box.

What happens when good cops snitch on bad cops?

There is so much talk of residents refusing to,co,operate with police. Some are not aware/refuse ro believe howfar,rhe Blue Code of Silence goes.

Read how Police treat good.cops. It is an eye opener for most. It os denied by many who,want the system to stay the same.

We need to protect the good cops and out the bad ones.

    Furgeson is long time Inspector General at City Hall ! He is the main problem with corruption in the City of Chicago ! He should step down or be removed today !
    Tell me why he not pursuing Minister Leon Finney anymore?
    Did T.W.O clean up their act ? Why do you not read up on that affair Furguson Vs Reverend Leon Finney and TWO and tell Us why other Chicago Residents and Vendors do not get the same Gentle treatment from the Inspector General office at City hall and Other city Inspector General offices? !

    Rubber Stamp would be better ! These people are brown nosing yes Men and Women! That document you speak of (190pg document Task Force on Police Accountability) is just more smoke from Mayor Rahm !
    How much did it cost the City of Chicago for Mr Furguson to compile that Report ?
    1st stop to better City of Chicago government accountability is to Dismiss the Inspector General at Chicago public schools , Chicago housing authority And replace them with some honest Professionals that can go to the State and federal Attorney without asking permission from the Mayors office!
    Most Major Housing authority agency's in America have realized that a (in house) Housing agency Inspector general is worthless and not very independent.
    I can Confidently Say the Chicago housing Authority Inspector general office has a very low grade under the current Inspector general and her assistant just a waste of millions of Dollars every year !
    Expect Chicago housing to return to Crime and living conditions of 1990s due to the current corruption and incompetence at CHA.
    I only make these statements because i believe and know them to be true from Research and investigation of Facts.

What can u do to whistleblow?

Many on my block are wise to the fact nothing sustainable comes from many NFPs. We go to countless/endless meetings for DECADES yet things get worse rather than better. Qualified people are passed by while jobs are sustained for those who produce nothing.

Our ANTI VIOLENCE initiatives are nothing but a sham. We pay tax dollars.
They are used for the political gains of our elected officials. We get nothing.

There is a total reform that needs to happen and,the core is,the union contract,that protects police,who are,guilty,of wrongdoing. Sounds like,the union needs reform also.

The JD needs to imvestigate the Police Union also. Protecting members guilty of criminal offenses should be illegal.

Why did the police leave this dead body on,the sidewalk?????

Who is supposed to remove it? People are freaking out on their way to work. ,this is NOT how to build trust and community,support that is for sure. ,it seemed they covered the body,while,they were here. When they left they turned the body over and sprawled it on,the sidewalk.

This is NUTZ!!! Who is in charge at 11th District?????

  • gpblight 22 Yr East Garfield Resident

    Did police prepare a false report? Rumor has it,the cause of death was reported as BLUNT FORCE TRAUMA when in actuality a was a BULLET in the head meaning MURDER.

    There were dozens of police and law enforcement people here that night. Does this mean the crime scene was not processed properly? Did a corner come? If so, what is their function?

    HOW CAN A BULLET IN THE HEAD BE CONFUSED WITH TRAUMA?

    Anybody got info? Please post.
