Shady Kids

I was walking home from work yesterday when two kids on bikes robbed me. One came up and hit my face and then grabbed my phone. They rode off before I could get a good look, but one had a red jacket and the other had a blue they were also African American. It was right by the dog park on Walton and noble. Basically just watch out, I saw them riding around the same area again today, probably looking for another victim.

    Bex34 as soon as you were told that you shouldn't have been on your phone. You should have changed direction and headed to your local Police Precinct.

    Had a similar experience a few years back. Was told there is nothing they can do.

    Went in with Laptop showed them local location via tracking gave a description of the offenders and showed them a receipt for the phone.

    Once again said there was nothing they could do.

    I said let me speak to a supervisor.

    I explained the issue again and all of a sudden there was something they could do.

    Their jobs. Phone was retrieved and person who stole it charged.

    Be prepared to stay for as long as it takes.

    I had a similar experience when my garage was broken into. I saw a guy riding my bike and headed straight to the police station that used to be on Wood. They just told me to write a report but one cop overheard and went after the guy. There were so many negative comments from the other police officers in the station that I couldn't believe my ears. They were laughing about the guy chasing a bike. Anyway, I got my bike back and I was so grateful to the police officer that I wrote a letter to his commander. Based on the other police officers' reaction, I'm not sure whether that was a good or bad thing for him.

Wicker park park

Does anyone know were there 20 cop cars at wicker park's park around 10:30? I was walking outta work when i ran into that mess!

  • Bger East Village neighbor

    I think the police response shows just how much they feel they are under attack every day by the bad guys. And the response is meant to reassure all cops, and to show us, that harming a cop will have serious and immediate consequences. Not saying I agree but just my take on the response. I agree that it was overkill and that we need to rethink who is hired, how cops are trained and what needs to be enforced and what level of force is justified.

  • When Police show enforce it is only for one of their own. They are saying passive aggressively that we matter and you don't. That is all.

Mailbox?

I can't seem to find a new mailbox. Looking for one that mounts in my fence. Does anyone have any recommendations for online or local stores?

  • Our box from Lowe's is metal and locks - didn't need to weld either, we were able to secure via a bracket (that we unfortunately didn't get from Lowe's). I like the idea of having access from the back, but I don't know if it's want to cut up our fence for it and then be stuck with only that mailbox option until the end of time.

  • Why not consider a nice locking mailbox on a post like they use in the suburbs. We did that at our home on the west side; just inside our locked wrought iron fence and within easy reach for our mail person. Our mail person had no problems delivering our mail and smaller packages into our mail box. We were even able to have a beautiful clematis growing along side the post in the summer and draped it with an evergreen swag during the Christmas holidays

Worse problem than rats? Litter.

I saw this piece of trash sitting on my porch today and it's a flyer about the the rat problem and how Brian Hopkins can solve it. You know what's worse than rats, all the trash and litter in the 2nd Ward. Find a way to run a campaign without trashing the city. Run on a platform of literally cleaning up the city in every way. Right now, you're just contributing to the trash.

  • Couldn't agree more. Maybe it's the passive-aggressive part of me talking, but I've always wanted to collect up all the ads, flyers, etc. and deliver them in a big pile right inside the door of the business/organization responsible.

  • Bger East Village neighbor

    The sad truth is that in local or Ward races the only way to get word to people is through campaign literature. Hopkins campaign workers are going door to door to canvass (they came to my door last night about 6 and I saw them earlier in the day on Winchester). I believe they left the piece because you were not home. I understand your frustration but it doesn't make sense for an aldermanic candidate to advertise on TV or in the newspapers so this is the alternative.

Late night license

I hear the owners of the new bar (owners of owl) are going to be seeking a 5am license. Any thoughts on crime levels and general "trouble" after owl opened up? I think once that goes in it could open up some more business on that desolate block. Thoughts?

Aldi Proposal

They changed the unit count down to 101 units and added more retail space and changed the footprint. This project is huge and can change that strip of milwaukee. Thoughts from anyone at the bucktown community meeting tonight?

  • Michael Bucktown Resident

    Another great comment, JeannyB: "if you rent a car for whatever reason you'll still need a parking spot."

  • The TOD ordinance wasn't passed because of CTA renovations, but because 35 percent of all trips in the City of Chicago are transit based. Buildings shouldn't be developed on the assumption that 100 percent of their uses will be exclusively car users, especially in those areas where transit options are highest.
