Burglar Caught in Action

An Afr Amer male jumped over our electronic gate early this morn between 3-4:00; walked up to the 2nd level and proceeded to, piece by piece, dismantle and walk our patio furniture down to the alley. My neighbor just happened to be coming home at the time and passed him on the steps as he was taken down my chairs and he stated that the burglar was as casual about walking down my furniture as if it were his own....

An Afr Amer male jumped over our electronic gate early this morn between 3-4:00; walked up to the 2nd level and proceeded to, piece by piece, dismantle and walk our patio furniture down to the alley. My neighbor just happened to be coming home at the time and passed him on the steps as he was taken down my chairs and he stated that the burglar was as casual about walking down my furniture as if it were his own. He then watched the male throw my property over the gate into a grassy vacant lot and walk back up the steps to get the rest! My neighbor called the police and then notified me. I called the police as well. They came out as if they were being bothered. We told them what happened and the male offficer chuckled that i should get cables to secure my property as to say that I should accept this as the norm. He left with his lieutenant without even taking a report. My neighbor could have given them a face to face description of this burglar to circulate around the community to warn others! I don't get it and i will go to the station later today

    I remember years ago stopping someone with a shopping cart strolling down the street doing into my neighbor's yard stealing the patio furniture umbrella. I asked what he was doing and he said "I don't mean any harm". He put the umbrella back and continued to stroll casually down the street with his cart turning at the corner to the left. About 1 minute later I flagged down an officer in a squad car and described what had just happened. He sped down the street and turned right! lol

  • There is an epidemic of police apathy and passivity. It's unacceptable and will only lead to citizens taking the law into their own hands.SMH😒😒

    The Chicago Memorial Day Massacre of 1937...or was it?
    Chicago is no stranger to labor disputes. In fact labor is one of the reasons that a traditionally Republican establishment turned Democratic toward the end of the 19th century and never looked back. While many history buffs are familiar with the Haymarket Riot or Haymarket Affair as it is sometimes called, many are not familiar...

  • Swimmers Rule!

    Ms. Durrette is asking for $247.67:
    My students need a whiteboard easel to help them self-regulate during practice. They need storage crates, the rug, and hooks to help transform a storage closet into a locker room.
