The Homeless in Uptown: Fear vs. Love

Jon Trott talks about the down side of his neighbourhood going from being one of the very poorest neighbourhoods in Chicago to one of the city's hottest real estate markets.

He includes this choice quote from a new neighbour

If city and park district services can eliminate rats and Asian beetles, why can't they eliminate homeless people who are determined to spoil our parks, threaten our health and safety?

Worth a read.
