Mothers Plan to Tear Down Crosses Representing Homicide Victims in Englewood Yard

Maggio News

The 44 crosses put up by an artist in an Englewood lot were meant to honor of the lives of those lost to violence in Chicago since this year began, but they have so upset members of the community that one group plans to remove them and the local alderman has come out against them, too.

Greg Zanis, a West Side native who now lives in Aurora, has said that he erected the crosses in the 5500 block of South Bishop Street after a lot owner gave him the land so he could put up a tribute to Chicago’s victims.
