    Thank you to the Redeye for being the ONE news agency in chicago that can actually tally up most of the crime that’s taken place. Don’t forget the old lady who was robbed leaving Treasure Island at 2pm last month… I’m sure there are dozens more incidents, but you guys are the only agency even attempting to cover the story thoroughly it seems.

    its sad that once and up and coming area is starting to get a bad reputation.
    it has nothing to do with the people who live and work in the area..its the underage afro-american kids who have nothing better to do than start shit with people.

    its like they are pushing buttons and provoking violence any day of the week
