And once again, what J-Fled might call "unpreventable:"
- He was a father of five; a former city worker whose friends say he was an outstanding man. But early Friday morning, Anthony Anglin was shot and killed in his home by masked gunmen.
Anglin was shot to death during a home invasion inside his Morgan Park home in the 10800 block of South Sangamon Street. Neighbors described the 72-year-old father of five as a man loved by all.
Friends were stunned that violence has touched what they call their close-knit, crime-free community.
Crime free? Not according to others in the neighborhood:
- "He was a family man, raised his children, good neighbor, they were church goers. The salt of the earth," said Rev. Janet P. Moore, a longtime family friend. "This is awful that we live in this community, which is supposed to be a pretty nice community but the criminal element has just gone wild."
That seems to be happening a lot lately. It's almost there aren't any police to protect the decent neighborhoods anymore.
