"I took this picture in the Alley off the 900 block of Cuyler Ave. [Update: Call it in as "the alley behind 940 W. Cuyler"]. I have called 311 twice so far to have this removed ASAP. I have expressed that there is no doubt it is gang related. I had thought gang tags were supposed to be removed within two days of the call. But it has been present for over a week at this point. It is very frustrating because as many people know getting rid of gang tags right away sends a clear message that the gang members do not "rule" the area. But it appears that the City of Chicago is content to allow this calling card to stay put. I have considered buying some white paint to just cover it up but with my luck I would be the one with legal trouble because of it. So we continue to wait. I would call the 46th ward office but they are so busy spending time fighting crime already....all of us on Cuyler are also well aware 'This is not our college campus!' "
Update: Apparently the gang punks have been busy. These two buildings on Kenmore (4070 and 4208) have also been defaced.
Please give Graffiti Blasters a call and report them (the buildings' residents have, but no action yet). As has been noted in the comments, the faster gang tags go away, the better it is for the entire neighborhood. Calling 311/Graffiti Blasters is an easy and quick way to fight back.
