    Not to be mean…, no forget that! This is what haps went you had a mayor like Daley, tear down public housing and let ppl free in neighborhoods with small gates. They don't know how to act! I'm sick of ppl running through our gangways, breaking into our cars, etc. I'm a black person that has lived on the southside for over 25 years and the area has never been like this. I hate to be around my own ppl, when they get section 8 and destroy a nice community. Just pathetic.

    Indeed, more so called "Christians" gathered to judge the lives of others. Anyone help the poor lately? No? Just gonna sit on your fat buttocks and think you know what the world needs. What's worse is you claim to follow the teachings. You just pretend. One day YOUR judgment will come!

    Something like Irak,
    There is no difference between Irak and USA .
    The Mayor is interested just to make money giving thousand tickets to good people and making money , but about criminals and safety it is just joke for him.
