That neighborhood went into the toilet when I moved from it back in 1986. Remember when some idiot from one of the Polish clubs shot at a guy on Milwaukee Ave. and hit another guy in the head 3 blocks down. Happy I left. They tried saving the neighborhood and it didn't work.
Yea I think your probably talking about one of them polish Simon City Royals I forgot his name but yea I think your talking about one of them that shot a guy over some spare change. I think that was that incident. That guy is in prison now though white trash is what he was and it was an innocent polish man he killed too... I think his name was pat saunders or some shit. He grew up rough though like the rest of us. I heard hes Prince of the R's in milwaukee now... To bad he will never get to see daylight again..

Yes you are right blacks and latinos are not the only ones but nowadays they mostly are. Gang life is defintly not prejudice it will kill any color who dares to walk down that dark road my friend.... whether it be black,white.latin.arab,asian, or whatever it has affected almost everyone at one time or another in life.... Especially here in Chicago....

The white boy gangs have all gone away, or have little power left. Even now the Simon City Royals have become all beaners.

What is really sad is that it was beautiful home with servants quarters and a great view of open area and trees. The neighborhood was like living in a fort and not being able to enjoy your surroundings like you should be able to.

Actually Rosco the Royals are mixed raced puerto ricans and whites with few blacks, occasional arabs here and there. They got some mixed raced members as well. Ive been out albany park. and i know quite afew people out there. so yea last time i checked ricans are not beaners. they do have a few of them to as well. And their leader and most of their top guys locked up are still white. he used to run around with some guys i knew. he was white trash in my eyes like pretty much most of them r's at that time were. but not quite as trashy as persay the MLD's(maniac latin disciples). Now their some trash. And they never got their members to 3500 strong as GL's once had. they maybe about 990 deep and going downhill losing alot of members do to tricking and snitching so yea you can kiss the whitemans ass on that one buddy.

I just found it funny that the Royals I come across in the area of Barry and Harding are now mostly spainish. The guys I remembered in the 70's were all hardcore whiteboys.

well rosco that just goes to show ya that they couldnt keep it that way due to immagration in the early to mid 90's.... and uh i havent heard of any r's over that way. i just know of alot of spanish and polish rs by milwaukee ave. and alot of central park and wilson white royals but alot of em are meth addicts. only mostly spanish set i know of is ivring park royals buddy. sure you from the chi?

and by the way the r's never claimed to be a white mob in the first place their leader was arabian mixed. just alot of whiteys flocked to them.

Thats why that gang (Royals) is still active.Other white gangs wouldn't let latinos and shines in there club,now there extinct.There are still alot of "whites" that are royals.The race thing mixed with banging thing went sour.There is latinos in black clubs/ blacks in latin gangs,race dont matter no more.Ive seen black and white SPANISH Cobras,Black Latin kings and so on.None of this really matters to me anymore,just trying to anwser youre statement

This is the second of two fatal shooting in my neighborhood within a month, there was also a shooting at Irving and Cicero a few weeks ago. Being a lifetime resident of this neighborhood I will have to say that the Hispanic thugs moving into the neighborhood are fully to blame for the increase in crime. Damn sanctuary cities!
I'm not sure if sanctuary has anything to do with it. Most of the Hispanic gangbangers seem to speak English, f-ed up ebonix gangster English, but English none the less. Like they were born here and citizens. It seems like this country just ruins everybody. People come here to give their kids a better life. A shame that they don't know enough about the selfishness of this country that will cause their kids to grow up thinking that they rule the world and deserve everything. Hence gangs, and selfish little white brats in the suburbs who think that they should be treated like celebrities.

Don't get me wrong however, I understand that there are gangs, thugs, and brats everywhere in the world, but I have been to one of the worst neighborhoods 'down south of the border' and they don't have half the violent crime that we do here in Chicago.

I agree, hispanics "pr" are aggressive in nature and the fact that they herd in pacs further promotes this inane behavior,truth is, population is dropping in chicago and the only ones the city has to depend on for crime revinue is hispanics and blacks.

Did you learn that in one of your sociology classes on you way to a Master's Degree or did you come up with this BS all by yourself??

Perhaps if half of you learned how to spell and make a complete sentence-- instead of gang banging or procreating or whatever the hell you did-- you would be taken more seriously. As it looks, you are all idiots. Stop shooting each other. Get a job. Take care of your babies-- and not on taxpayers money-- by being educated, responsible members of society.
