However, although the Safe Passage routes have been mapped out for parents and students; the police officers, and Safe Passage workers, and volunteers who will man those routes won't be staffing them until school begins on Aug. 26.

More people to kill!

There is just nothing good about this. Any of it.

Hmm. . .I wonder if the gang bangers got a hold of this "Safe Passage" map and used it as a quick way to find targets to rob.

Nah, they just need strict gun control. And maybe somebody could bribe the local politicians to get the gangs to stop killing everybody...

I'd say it not happening during school hours is good.

How's that half-hearted gun control working for ya?

Just curious, what sort of drugs are funding the gangs these days? It is stuff we'd be willing to talk about legalizing? Is it possible to undercut the funding for gangs? I mean, other than shipping more jobs overseas.

Good thing school's out on Saturday nights.

49 elementary school closings in one year... I don't keep up with Chicago but did they declare bankruptcy too or what?

How would they go about reclaiming land overrun by organized crime or gangs anyways? What forces could they use? Just police?

Make it night school only.  Negro kids are harder to hit in the dark.

Currently they are knocking down all abandoned properties near the school "Safe passages" and it's actually working. Crime on blocks drops once abandon buildings are removed.

If you need a thing like this safe passage map, you have already lost your city; and to a greater extent the children who would have inherited it are now just killing each other.  Sad.

Yup, not too many kids going to school on a Sat night during summer break.

I found the map, in case anybody's interested. (warning: huge pdf)

ShawnDoc: Yup, not too many kids going to school on a Sat night during summer break.


I think the idea is that if murders are routinely happening on the "safe route" it might not be that safe, even a whole two weeks later when school gets back in session.  It's not like these maps are sending them past "murder club" that's only open 9 pm to 2 am, weekends only.
 
2013-08-12 03:59:32 AM
What, Subby?

For Chicago, 2 people shot and 1  killed on a Saturday night  is considered "safe passage."

World War 2 London organized sending their children to the countryside to keep them safe from air raids.

It's time America considers well funded public boarding schools for its youth. An idyllic countryside setting would be a great equalizer to break the cycle of poverty. All students could be getting the same education from adult role models that are uncommon back on the streets and Americans would see there's more to the world and culture beyond the limited boundaries of gang turf or surburban bubbles. Start with areas that qualify as war-zones like Chicago.

I'm really not sure on how similar it is but years ago for me it was the complete opposite. Our family lived out in the suburbs and our two choices for school were either a French or Catholic high school. If those weren't an option the kids would bus an hour and a half into a crap neighbourhood for public school.

If there were a way to filter out the garbage the kid would be taught I'd stick a kid in a catholic school over a public school at this point.

But that would screw up the education budgets.  Some schools would spend less since their bus costs would go way down and too many empire builders have their snouts in that trough.

So we've given up?  It's just "safe passage" maps now?  Is that the best we can do?  Really?  If that's the case Detroit looks like an up and coming community in comparison.  I remember growing up in Chicago in the 80s in a northwest side (Austin and North Ave area) neighborhood and even though it was sketchy at night during the day my brother and I could walk to the Walgreens 2 blocks up with no real problem. I miss the Chicago of old.  Sketchy but not tragic (at least not for me).

Find a good Jesuit or Russian Orthodox school and let them know you are happy to have your kids learn about religion in its role in history, law and social issues but you don't want the kids to learn religion.

When are we going to admit that we lost the south side of Chicago to the thugs and just give up? Condemn all the buildings to force everyone to move everyone out, shut off the city services, and bulldoze everything.

If you are a parent and you are still living in this squalid hell-hole you are officially part of the problem, not part of the solution.
 
2013-08-12 06:30:35 AM
We do realize the vic is 54.

And while the location of the crime is a coincidence, it looks like just another drug deal or robbery gone bad.

Not sure about undercutting funding, but this is a superb tool for cutting their "resources" in the interim:

Poverty, failing schools, inadequate career paths in the pipeline from failing schools, and the criminal justice system are responsible for this.

A poor parent, unable to afford relocation to a safer area of Chicago, is not.

That's racist.

At least that's how it will be portrayed when the "community leaders" realize their money and power base are threatened.  There's no personal power to be gained from actually helping the poverty-stricken, only from talking about it.

Dude - EVERY tab on Farkkk.com is a "fark with the black guy" tab. This is where all the scared little racists go to vent the shiat they don't have the balls to spew in real life, and who think they have too much class for 4chan.
Welcome, as they say, to Fark.

Well, we haven't lost the entire southside. The area around Midway, Beverly, Hyde Park, and Bridgeport/Chinatown are decent. The place we really need to bulldoze is on the west side... Austin.

Also they are closing schools because of a concerted effort to move people out of the crappy neighborhoods and into the burbs or down state. The schools are undercrowded on the south and west sides. I would guess that the whole northside thing is gonna start spreading to everywhere except Uptown. Its already happening... people a little older than me are staying in the city to raise their kids and my generation might do the same. There is little desire to go to the burbs and there is plenty of room in the city near public transit. Just gotta get rid of the gang bangers somehow.
