The importance of reporting crimes or suspicious activities

Don't ever brush something off when you hear or see something suspicious going on.. You can possibly save the lives or livelihood of a person who may be in danger or of teenagers who are going down the wrong path...or someones home from being burglarized, etc

We may hear what sounds like fireworks and because we hear kids playing outside, brush it off as fireworks.. but it might indeed be gun shots.

We might see a group of kids walking,...

Don't ever brush something off when you hear or see something suspicious going on.. You can possibly save the lives or livelihood of a person who may be in danger or of teenagers who are going down the wrong path...or someones home from being burglarized, etc

We may hear what sounds like fireworks and because we hear kids playing outside, brush it off as fireworks.. but it might indeed be gun shots.

We might see a group of kids walking, and think "hrm i'm thinking negative.. they're probably just kids doing their own thing"... but the reality may be way different

Not knowing these kids, even if they are doing something harmless like smoking weed.., they are influencing YOUR kids, and OTHER kids around the neighborhood.. getting them into bad things like smoking weed, drinking, and hanging out (wastefully)...

We might see things like an argument between a woman and a man who know each other.. We might feel like not getting involved.. because it's personal... But when its happening in front of you or is audible to your ears, then it's not so private... Call the cops just to be safe..

The most harmless of things like a single person walking by himself with a hoodie on can lead to a shooting in a neighborhood with gang activity.. Most cops don't have things to do every minute.. It's nothing for them to swing by and check it out.

I just think of the situation in Albany Park many years ago where a gang member threw a molotov cocktail into an open window, killing a pregnant woman and her young children.. because he suspected it was the home of a rival gang member.. The other person with him was never caught but he was.

I can only imagine if someone saw 2 shady suspects outside and thought these kids seem to be loitering around.. let me call the cops.. how things would have turned out.

  • Unfortunately, many people still think a brown person walking on their street is wrong. Janu thinks people outside AA meetings are automatically criminals. Where does the blanket generalizing and stereotyping end?

  • I didn't say people are criminals. Just too much loitering along Irving Park. It won't attract businesses to the empty store fronts or customers.

    Principals seek parents' help to lobby legislators for schools
    Nicole Oppenheim cannot imagine her twins starting school next year with 40 classmates at Hawthorne Elementary Scholastic Academy. If the Chicago Public Schools' doomsday budget projections become fact in the absence of state aid, schools might have no other choice.

Foundation Repair Company?

So my wife and I are looking to see if anyone has any recommendations for an affordable foundation repair company. We're possibly buying a 2 flat, and there's a small section of the foundation that's just for supporting the back stairway (added later) that the inspector found and we're trying to figure out approximately how much it is to see if it's worth negotiating over.
