If Epps posts bail he will come back to Skokie where he lives on Main Street just around the corner from my home. Most likely he lives with family in Skokie. How do I find out if his rent is paid by a Section 8 voucher? My understanding is that if he lives in a household where the rent is paid by Cook County (a voucher that is paid by tax payers, us) he CANNOT continue to live in that household. Who tracks this? It is a sad day when the criminals are coming from Skokie to terrorize people who live in the city of Chicago. CRIME IS DOWN? I think not!

Probably hard to find out as the left wing conspires against law abiding tax payers. Despite this, I would call the mayor, police, cook county housing authority. Maybe we should hire a private investigator and then call the media and expose those that have not only ruined Skokie with their agenda, but also do no follow the letter of their OWN laws....

Believe me, I want to see Skokie cleaned up. I have lived in the community for over 50 years. However, since this person has not been convicted of the crime yet, how can he be thrown out of the apartment? If he is convicted, and the housing is being paid by a section 8 voucher, then he should not be allowed to live in that apartment and the section 8 voucher should be taken away if he tries to inhabit the apartment.
