they destroyed the newly developed buildings in a matter of weeks. “ I have
asked the police to contact Chicago police to get some insight on the gang intelligence
by submitting the photos of the tattoos photographed off of the subjects. We
have never had a gun or drug or gang problem. “ Since 2005 it has increased
