    Lakeview, Wrigleyville mugging victims describe violent attacks
    Police say at least four people have been violently attacked in the past week on the city's North Side, but ABC7 has learned about more cases in Lakeview and Wrigleyville. Two victims say they were beaten, robbed and left seriously injured. Lucas Wittwer described how he was robbed and beaten steps from Wrigley Field.

  • Is my perception wrong? Having lived in the neighborhood for 10 years it seems to me recently that the only police presence I see is police giving paking tickets or tickets to college kids drinking a beer on the beach.

  • Bryan, you are probably right. Though I appreciate our limited police force and all that they do.....they are under orders to to give tickets out to people who can pay them. As for the violent criminals our WORTHLESS judges hand out a slap on the wrist - if that.....the problem is the "leaders" who don't give a hoot about the tax payers.

    Perhaps one of Chicago's greatest assets is its recognition as the birthplace of house music in the early 1980s. A genre that has since traveled the globe and now solicits stronger associations - for many people - with Europe than the United States, house has influenced countless subsequent genres of electronic music and helped define dance music as we know it today.

    BJB's bad corporate citizenship, also included
    1)BJB-hired/supervised staff at the Chateau Hotel also violated federal mail and Social Security laws by the staff not giving residents their Social Security checks and other mail. Police had to be called on multiple occasions in order for tenants to get their important mail.

    2) BJB's Jamie Purcell could have put all 900 SRO tenants that he displaced, at least temporarily, in the normally occurring vacancies in BJB's existing market rate apartments:, At a June 2013 meeting, in front of a room full of activists and Ald. Cappleman and Tunney, Jamie Purcell of BJB said that BJB's company-wide vacancy rate was only 1.5%. .Even if we use that low 1.5% monthly vacancy rate figure, here is some interesting math:

    1.5% of 5000 market-rate units owned by BJB is 75 units vacant PER MONTH
    75 units X 12 months in a year=900 units vacant PER YEAR

    900 units divided by 140 (The approximate number of people in the Chateau (138 plus 2 for couples, a low estimate of the number of couples there)=6.4 Chateau Hotel's full of poor people who could have been put in subsidized housing with BJB while BJB would still receive market-rate rent with subsidies. The average Chicago apartment vacancy rate in the below article is over double that, so about 1800 or more people could have been helped if BJB had started housing poor people with subsidies when we first gave Jamie Purcell the information on housing subsidies.

    Lets look at the evidence to start an investigation for possible collusion charges by BJB & FLATS Chicago:

    1) Two very large apparent competitors: market-rate property owners BJB Properties and FLATS Chicago, with thousands of currently existing market-rate rental units
    2) Following the SAME business plan:
    A) Buy occupied SRO's,
    B) Evict all the low-income tenants,
    C) Gut-rehab the SRO's,
    D) Rent the rehabbed rooms to higher-income tenants for much higher rents than before.
    3) During the SAME time period: Starting around 2011.
    4) At the SAME Time, both BJB and FLATS started their SRO purchase and gut-rehabs around 2011 with neither BJB nor FLATS publically committing to stop the purchases and gut-rehabs of SRO's
    5) In the SAME geographical area: the Northside of Chicago
    6) To achieve the SAME results:
    A) Permanently eliminate the lowest rental housing stock in the area,
    B) Raise the market-rate level of rents permanently in the rehabbed buildings at the same time in that area,
    C) While also raising the market-rate level of rents in other buildings in other areas of the city: Those forced to move out of the SRO's due to their evictions and the permanent elimination of affordable SRO housing on the northside, must move to areas of the city where, initially after the evictions, their may be some existing affordable housing. The move ins of these people from the north side to the south and west sides of Chicago put upwards pressure, via supply and demand forces, on ALL single room/one bedroom rents in the city, not just rents on the northside, making the city less affordable than before the SRO purchase/gut-rehabs.

    This significantly changes, through BJB & FLATS Chicago's market manipulation, the rental real estate market of Chicago in favor of building owners, particularly large multi-unit/multi-building building owners such as BJB Properties and FLATS Chicago
