Crack Pipe Kit @ Fargo & Ashland
This crack pipe kit was lying on the ground this morning at Fargo and Ashland along with a couple empty liquor bottles. A disturbing find that shouldn't go unreported or swept under the rug. Drug selling territory is one major reason why people are shooting and killing each other in Rogers Park.
This is not a political blog post. Just an observation that crack use is still high enough around here that people drop their crack smoking supplies every once in awhile. Would it be better to stick our heads in the sand or our fingers in our ears and sing happy songs to ourselves? Or should we discuss this sickness in our neighborhood?
Some people in the RP think its declasse (or inappropriate) to discuss the violence, gang banging or drugs in Rogers Park. But really its rather foolish to only focus on the positive. Because if you don't know whats really going on you could find yourself at the wrong place at the wrong time. Only by discussing and exposing local problems can there be any hope for solutions.
