  • When will it end

    Another sad day in Chicago. All time high crime, unemployment, utility & food costs. High rental or housing costs. No jobs & ridiculous salaries for the working class. Reduced mental & social services availability for the working poor.
    Everybody suffers, children and adults needlessly die. More and more people homeless and poverty at a all time high. We as a group need to elect new & responsible representatives who will pass tough legislation to help the ever growing poor and crackdown on crime. Please stand up and protect your families.

      So you’re saying poverty leads to this type of thing??? Sure, just give everyone jobs and money I’m sure the world would be crime free, that’s a really ignorant way of thinking.
