CHICAGO -- If you follow Fr. Michael Pfleger on Facebook, you may have seen his rant about Comcast canceling several appointments to fix the cable at St. Sabina's Church.

Comcast said the neighborhood wasn't safe.

The same thing happened to several South Side customers.

The company got an earful from Pfleger's supporters, and ended up sending two technicians and a supervisor to the church.

Comcast released this statement:

"We received information from the police about the potential for heightened violence in that neighborhood. In an effort to ensure the safety and security of our employees, we made the decision to postpone six scheduled service visits in the neighborhood. We proactively reached out to our customers and worked with them to reschedule the appointments."
