Mail delivery stops in on a Chicago-area block deemed too dangerous by the Post Office:
Dozens of mailboxes remain empty after the post office suspends service in one south suburban neighborhood…The U.S. Post Office seems to think that this is one of the most dangerous blocks in the country. People who live on it say they haven’t gotten any mail delivered to their homes in almost two weeks.
“Between robberies and shootings and delayed police response, several things going on, that would make it unsafe,” said Harvey resident Venus Jones.
One of those shootings on the morning of October 10th reportedly happened yards away from the mail carrier. That’s when the mail stopped on Marshfield between 151st and 152nd streets, but the post office didn’t tell anyone.
“Some of the people didn’t even know that it was being held at the post office,” Jones said.
Now Jones, who says her own home has been broken into three times in 30 days is talking to her neighbors about the mail problem and what should happen next.
Good thing the rights of the the law abiding citizens in the area to own guns are more tightly restricted than any place in the country! Goodness knows how bad it’d be then, right?
