Police action in Rogers Park Social alley?

Did anyone notice the police action in the Rogers Park Social alley this afternoon? (January 31, around 3pm, Glenwood between Farwell and Morse)

An SUV sped into the alley (very fast) as I was walking down Glenwood. It was so fast that I made a point of looking into the alley as I crossed to make sure they weren't going to speed back out & hit me. I saw two men standing over a third lying on the ground. It...

Did anyone notice the police action in the Rogers Park Social alley this afternoon? (January 31, around 3pm, Glenwood between Farwell and Morse)

An SUV sped into the alley (very fast) as I was walking down Glenwood. It was so fast that I made a point of looking into the alley as I crossed to make sure they weren't going to speed back out & hit me. I saw two men standing over a third lying on the ground. It appeared they were kicking him. I pulled out my phone to call the police. Someone (I thought he worked at Rogers Park Social, but he may have been a customer), came out of the bar & looked into the alley. He went back into the bar & I asked him if he was going to call the police. he said that it was the police in the alley, & they were chasing the man.

Several more plainclothes vehicles went down Glenwood using their sirens (the first car didn't use a siren).

I didn't take any photos or video, mainly because this is the first time I've encountered a situation like this & I froze up. I understand that the police want to protect us, but I live right there on Farwell & Glenwood. There was something about the situation that didn't sit right with me, & I wanted to reach out & see if anyone had any additional information about what happened.

I also emailed Joe Moore to see if he could shed some light on the situation.

  • GL Rogers park new to chicago, like to know what is going on:)

    I understand and agree with not wanting drug dealers in our neighborhood. My issue is that it is not nessary to beat and kick a drug dealer as part of their apprehension and arrest, even if they were running away. They deserve to get put in jail, not violently beat....

    I understand and agree with not wanting drug dealers in our neighborhood. My issue is that it is not nessary to beat and kick a drug dealer as part of their apprehension and arrest, even if they were running away. They deserve to get put in jail, not violently beat. Some people may not understand this but people that break the law are still humans just as much as a good citizen. If I am wrong in my opinion, I hope the police use more violence like that on rapists, child molesters, and woman beaters. I would not feel so bad then

Lost keys

There's a key with "Gallaudet university emblem," dc bike share and a key on it. Husband lost it either 2 places while shoveling in neighborhood: north side of lunt east of sheridan to the beach or north side of glenwood(east of tracks) on lunt. Sentimental value to it as I used it during my time in graduate school.

Speaking of Trash...

How about the recycling center at Ravenswood? It has become such a problem because the demand for recycling has so far outstripped the supply of recycling dumpsters. it is really unsightly to see all the mountains of recycling that has accumulated in the parking lot over there. Something needs to happen...either more frequent pick-up of the recycling by the contractee, more recycling dumpsters, or residential pick-up of recycling. Soon there will be a rodent problems over there.

  • If you live in an apartment building with 5 or more units that does not provide recycling services, please add your report to our site:

    www.mybuildingdoesntrecycle.com

    We are collecting reports to show the city that residents of high-density apartment buildings want the Burke-Hansen ordinance (Chicago's ordinance mandating that high-density buildings provide recycling services) to be enforced.

    Dan, unfortunately these have been in higher demand and since Rahm has taken office, several have closed. They are more likely to close them than open new ones at this point, somehow this administration thinks they've "solved" recycling by rolling out blue carts citywide. The site at Irving/California had similar over-demand where they couldn't empty the bins fast enough for the demand it had. The city removed it upon the alderman's request due to the fact that it was going to potentially attract wildlife. Never to be replaced.

Seriously Joe??

When we told your office OUR building management said no signs you still put them on the property... We notified them again! Expect them to be tossed in trash instead this time as last time returning to your office didn't seem to get the hint...

Poor JOE his IQ is declining by the minute.., maybe time to go to the doctor to check your head!

    Scott Phillips you purportedly run a one-person public relations consulting business. Do you have an actual office with real clients or do you work with a laptop sitting in the gutter some place spewing nasty things about the Alderman all day and all night long? You don't base your arguments...

    Scott Phillips you purportedly run a one-person public relations consulting business. Do you have an actual office with real clients or do you work with a laptop sitting in the gutter some place spewing nasty things about the Alderman all day and all night long? You don't base your arguments on facts or issues. All you do is call people nasty names like an angry little girl in elementary school. Your online behavior is weird and less than adolescent. You act like an angry little girl - Lucy van Pelt from Charlie Brown. Good Grief Scott. Get a grip on things. Will you be at the Republican Party thing for Don Gordon on Sunday? I won't sit near you in case you have a hissy fit.

    I find it repugnant that anyone would remove or damage any candidate's signs. People that endorse or engage in this practice have sunk pretty low--and possibly committed trespass on private property. You are not the type of neighbors I want, and I don't care who you are endorsing. The issue is your less than childish and unethical behavior.
