Re: [LoganSquare] Drug/gang problem building 3220 W Wellington
- Mark, I'm glad you brought this up. My son catches
his school bus right on that corner. It's fine in the
mornings, but it definetely has a very noticeable gang
pressence there in the afternoons.
Unfortunately his bus drops him off about 35 minutes
after Logandale/Avondale lets out so it can be pretty
empty and almost spooky feeling at times. I hate when
the bus is late, leaving me to sit and watch gang
members creep back and forth on the block carefully
watching each passing car for I don't know what (rival
gang members, drug customers perhaps?).
Actually, today, when I went to pick him up, cops had
5 or 6 of these guys with their hands on the hood. I
saw a canine patrol roll up as we were walking away.
I really hope that the police make a real effort to
clean this area up. There have been a few times when
I've been late to pick up my son (he's 11) and it
makes me nervous to think that he might be alone out
