A Chicago alderman in a dispute about a Salvation Army food truck in his ward is now being targeted by protesters.

The Salvation Army claims 46th Ward Ald. James Cappleman asked the food truck to leave his ward in the Uptown neighborhood.

Cappleman says he only asked for evidence the service was working.

Now, 200 protesters say they will picket Cappleman’s ward office Wednesday night and had out free soup.

They’re also angry he awarded a permit allowing a farmer to capture pigeons in Uptown to take them to Indiana for sport shooters.

    Mr. Cappleman I am a Salvation Army donor. Have You ever donated to them to help the less fortunate? As long as They keep helping people I will continue to donate to them and Mr. Cappleman I do not itemize my taxes to claim a deduction , it is out of the kindness of my heart. Some of us have one.

  • get real

    why don't these alderman work on chicago's money problems instead of screwing with the people. In face why don't we just get ride of all of them and say the time and money.

    Don't let this man fly under the radar while he carries out hi anti-poor agenda. Call his shots. Question his every move and don't believe a word he says. His actions say what he's all about.
