Stateville is too good for these miscreants. Time to arrange transfer to some nice chilly prison in the Yukon. Upon conviction, of course.

Soon the only thing left of the old CHA will be memories and photos. What a mind boggling waste of everything. Waste of money, resources, lives. You just cant stack people up who dont know how to live in the first place.

I don't care how many luxury high-rise developments are built around what used to be the Cabrini Green housing project. Unless the Mayor starts tearing down what's left of the housing projects, that area is still ghetto and unsafe to walk around in unless it's broad daylight. Even then, what white person would be caught walking along North Hudson & West Chestnut?

""It's a season of giving, so our gift to the people up there, the good people, is to let them live now where they live without the constant fear of this drug organization all around them[.]"
But a new drug organization will just replace this one. Or did we just win the drug war?

There is a police station less than 1 block away from this location & it took TWO YEARS to break this drug operation up. Something isn't right.

The cops arrest a few small fry a year to big headlines, while the big fish keep in business.
Some would say the big fish sacrifice a few small fry every year or so. That way the cops get their headlines and the big fish stay in business. A very convenient arrangement.
This is sad but true.....

You stupid idiot. There are other option available to these young people of color. I get so sick of fellow African Americans justifying why we break the law. Thank you for perpetuating every stereotype I try to break. How about this..... Instead of selling drugs by the school the youths go inside the school and learn.
