    Fark said Rich people in nice Chicago neighborhood try to run out poor family that lived there long before the neighborhood was nice, call SWAT team to do it.

    Okay, so I'm thinking that's the article I'm going to read.

    Family shattered after raid, home loss - chicagotribune.com

    Only not so much. Not at all, really.

    Do you think things were handled correctly? Agree, or disagree?

    Well,it's Mary "The FOrehead" Schmick, I wouldn't believe her if she wrote a column saying the sky was blue.

    (Seriously, look at the woman's forehead, it's freakish!)

    Most neighborhoods have community standards about the condition of homes. Sounds like their home was run down compared to their neighbors.

    Considering most of the people living in this neighborhood are Chicago Liberal Democrats, I guess it only proves they only care about poor people in the abstract.

    It looks more like a fivehead than a forehead.

    Isn't it a normal procedure that a developer of a subdivision would try to buy the homes that are in a tract of land? From what I have heard about Chicago, this wouldn't come as a surprise, but this family could have been saved by a fair offer on the valuable land and able to set up for a new home.

    But I didn't like hearing about the inadequate treatment of the dogs!

    Handled inappropriately.

    Am I surprised? No, lots of thuggery in Chicago.
