      More than 3. All hard working who also hate the garbage that comes out of Englewood.

  • JUDY

    Yes, white men have been cruising the south side and west side looking for black women and men for years. Isn’t the 6th district in Englewood? Dosen’t Madison and Cicero cover the 15th and 11th dis tricts. Is not Cicero the boundary lines? Halsted and 75th and Halsted is in Englewood and on Friday and Saturday night, white men solicit women all the time. Then they go back to their nice clean neighborhoods and talk about what is happening in Englewood. On Madison, they come in at night then go back into Oak Park and River Forest and talk about the ghetto. How do I know this? MY BROTHER AND COUSIN WORK IN BOTH DISTRICTS.
