Door-to-door panhandler hassles neighbors on Morse

...his 50's, going door-to-door asking for money for bus fare in the 1800 block of West Morse Avenue. Apparently this is against the law and warrants multiple 911 calls from the residents of...
BLOGNOTES: Forget bus fare, this guy should stand in the 1400 block of West Morse and would make enough money for a trip to Las Vegas and back. The police allow this activity to happen 24/7 in that block, even when residents call 911. Just ask Gidget."

The return of Broken Heart was announced on Everyblock as well by Christine Kreutz.

The Broken Heart Has Returned
|Official stance from Everyblock concerning|
the Broken Heart. Also famous poster Mr. Rogers.
Interesting looking back over the Official Record of Rogers Park aka Everyblock this past year. It would be unthinkable for anyone including Broken Heart, DNAinfo.com, CTA Tattler, or any news agency worth anything to ignore the community message board of where they live, especially if they live in Rogers Park.
This event in October 2012 would be impossible today, but when certain events do happen its just plain dumb not to include the Broken Heart on the site. It becomes its own form of censorship. It would also be unthinkable for anyone keeping up with current events in Rogers Park to ignore the standard bearer for the community news and opinion, the blog The Broken Heart Of Rogers Park.Rogers Park on Morse has been ruled over by gangs for many years and the shadow is only now being lifted. The fact that Rogers Park had a very tough time is reflected in its longest running blog and blogmaster.
Yes there are blog posts on the Broken Heart that don't need to be media mentioned , but the "dumb ass trucker" who got stuck on Morse is news. But even Craig being given a ticket for not having his dog on a leash is news. We have to know if this law is being enforced. (whether his dog was on a leash or not we don't know but cops have been known to pick on certain people). Uneven enforcement of laws needs to pointed out as well.
If we look at recent stories from DNAinfo.com we can see that they haven't been ignoring the site. (Gidget story on Morse and the recent Sullivan story involving fights at the school)
