Last night Congressman Bobby Rush held a "Conversation" on Crime at St. Dorothy's Church along with some of his cronies. I found out as many others did after the meeting took place because most 6th ward residents east of the Dan Ryan were not notified, but it appears "community church's" were. Frankly, it's all just publicity stunts because no one can answer the simple questions "Why Can't We Light Up 79th Street?" and "When is there going to be a zero tolerance stance taken on 79th street?". The merchants and residents on the God Coast have declared enough is enough and getting what they want, why can't we? I'm sick of politicians and other so call leaders coming into Chatham pimpin the crime situation because when the cameras go away so do they.A rant by Worlee! What can we do about crime when the cameras go away?
BTW, at one of Ald. Lyle's final ward meetings on Cottage Grove earlier this year, Rush pledged not only that he wouldn't move his office he would also pledge to help the beat (624) where his office is located. Well we can only wonder what came of that help.
