    Old Town has some great areas, but this area near the section 8 apartments (Evergreen Sedgwick Apts and Marshall Field Garden Apts) houses Cabrini Green's castaways, thieves, drug dealers, and gang banger punks. We need CPD over here weeding these criminals outta here sending them home. The residents of these apartments go through screening, but when the cousins come to stay we are all unsafe! The City of Chicago Section 8 authorizers, the apt. management company, and the renters of these places should be held accountable and not be allowed to house extra people on our dime! Get the riff raff outta here CPD!

    The Chicago Housing Authority and resident should be also held accountable. The mixed income living plan has not helped the residents living in these neighborhoods. The violence and deaths should really be attributed to the the lack of family and moral values in these communities, which CPD and activists cant govern. From 2001- present/ Afganistan 2,300 american troops DEATHS……. Chicago 5,000~DEATHS. THE WAR IS HERE CONGRESS.
