Awesome news! Merry Christmas!
Hey Shiller, you lost some voters today. Lets see, more people against you and your voters going to jail. See ya!!!!!!! If you do not like it, MOVE!!!!!!!
Hey wishinevercamehere. How I would love Shiller to lose some of her voters, its actually Mary Ann Smith who lost those voters. Sommerset is in Smith's ward. Another champion of the homeless and coddler of felons.Wheen I lived in Smith's ward last year, she tried to give the firehouse at Hollywood and Ridge to REST for a "temporary" mens shelter. That shelter is smack in the middle of residential with no real commercial space around there. We were advised that those going to that shelter were the worst of the worst homeless (drug addicts felones etc). I helped organize a protest of about 300 people to the "approval" meeting. Smith changed her mind after the showing of the angry mob.Smith is no saint and ironically, the problems with felons and drug addicts is not is Shiller's ward, it is in Mary Ann smiths ward. We just get the section 8 housing with felons and drug dealers. Mary Ann smith takes the mentally ill drug addicts and felons.Two peas in a pod.
the sweep is a joint operation of "Federal, state and county officials" yet "jurisdictional limits prevented immediate arrests" @ Somerset????
Maybe they were from another planet. Time to call MIB!!!Yes Hugh, I thought that was pretty odd.
How does the writer of the news report know that the actions "were initiated by Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan in response to Tribune investigative reports about Illinois nursing facilities that house high numbers of felons and sex offenders." Could it be that this news report was "powered by" the Chicago Tribune? Nah...There's nothing like unbiased newspaper reporting.
I think that the "jurisdictional limits" had to do with other States issuing the warents and not indicating if they would pay for them to be picked up by local or State of IL police. If the crimes were not serious criminal acts it is likely another state would not pursue it.
Correction: the men going to the shelter were not the worst of felons, the men are homeless thats all. If you met a few you'd meet guys that work during the day and are homeless (12/2009 Epworth church dinner for the men). True the firehouse was not a smart idea, but lets not mix up the information. This is not in support of the shelter and its location but merely facts to present.
Dorothy, when someone is living in an overnight shelter, their problems typically go way beyond just being homeless. There's something else that got them to that place and it's rarely bad luck with employment.Anyway, I'm glad that many of them are working and getting back on their feet. Hopefully they shouldn't need to live in that shelter much longer.
