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.

You da man, Phil. Alright, I'm ready. What'r we gonna discuss? This is fun.

Well Stan...

Whose kit is this? Where is the dealers homebase? How much crack smoking do you need in an area for a kit like this to be just lying around? Does this have anything to do with the building in receivership at Fargo and Ashland? Should Crack be legalized so that people don't steal to buy it or shoot each other over drug selling turf? Has anyone else seen drug dealing or found crack smoking kits? Is smoking crack good for? ( no neither physically or mentally)

Why cant we just chew cocoa leaves? Why do we (as humans) have to distill it to such high concentrations and sell it on the street?

People smoke crack cuz its cheap and they ain't got no money and no hope. Yall can arrest these motherfathers and keep trowin' em in da clink but it ain't gonna solve no problems. What we really need is a bigger middle class and less goddamn discrepancys in all da wealth that's a causin' people to smoke dis crap chemical junk cuz they ain't got no hope and they jus wanna get away.

Philip McGregor Rogers said...

Agreed Stan. Smoking crack is such a negative self destructive act and it sure aint helping anybody in the short or long run.

Gonzo Rockatansky said...

Observations and exposing the same old problems aint discussion. Wheres the discussion or ideas for solution? Didya keep the crack kit.

Philip McGregor Rogers said...

Are there crack pipes on your corner Gonzo? Or is that just par for the course?

If I had my choice of drinking expired cough syrup and popping weird shaped pills with Helen over at her apartment or smoking crack at Fargo and Ashland - I'd choose the crack pipe.

If I had a choice between sticking a goddamned ice-pick in my ear until I heard somethin' pop or listenin' to some loser bike monkey pick on a lady he don't know nothin' about I'd choose the ice pick. Yawn.

When did the bad boy return? After Lawrence House closed I thought me moved into the Wison Mens Hotel with the dangerously unstable individual, DUI. Did you come back to the Hellhole to make more trouble bad boy? Sounds like Badman and Rompin are back together again. Sweet.

Mary Leahy said...

Is that guy Craig at it here too, Phil? An ya let him do it. Ya tell me I ain't nice when I say things, but this jerk gets ta insult Helen whoever she is. I'll pop ya one if I ever run into ya in person, Phil. You're not nice either.

Philip McGregor Rogers said...

What kind of discussion would there be if not for kvetching over the moderation or lack there of?

Too much moderating. Not enough. No way to make everyone or anyone happy.

There are other things to talk about.
