CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS..........?

There was an incident at the SE corner of Broadway and Glenlake today at about 11:40 am. I was walking to Patio Beef on Broadway and on the corner near Whole Foods I witnessed 3 men and a woman in an altercation, one of the men had a cane and there was a wheelchair at the scene. They were using the can in beating someone and they were wrestling on the ground.

I immediately called 911 and they took the call. I waited on the corner to speak tthe Police and in the meantime the group of people left. Finally after almost 6 minutes after I had called 2 police cars (or suburbans) arrived to nothing.

I then walked to Patio Beef and in the restaurant were 2 officers eating their lunch, I questioned them as to why they did not check out the altercation, they said they "Heard that the call was taken so they just continued to eat their lunch." I asked why they did not go out and see what was happening, they said there was already police going to the scene.

This is quite disturbing that the police,, less than 120 feet away, sat there and ate hot dogs and fries while a person was being beat across the street. What if something more happened or there were weapons involved?

They asked me to please not disturb their lunch, since they are allowed to have a lunch.

'Sickening' Late Night Paintball Attack Wounds Man, Dog

Lisa, who only wanted to be identified by her first name, said her husband Chris was walking Mugsy around 10:45 p.m. when an older looking, grey Jeep Cherokee drove up to the two, who were in front of their home in the 5900 block of North Paulina Street.

    Man, Dog Injured in 'Sickening' Late Night Paintball Attack
    EDGEWATER - An Edgewater woman says an incident in which someone randomly fired paintball pellets at her husband as he was walking their nine-year-old Old English Bulldog Mugsy Tuesday night was "sickening" and "disgusting." "Just the fact that someone would shoot a dog, I mean for no apparent reason, it's just boggles my mind that anyone would be that low of a human," Lisa said.
    https://www.dnainfo.com

  • I'm so sorry this happened. And, I agree...this IS sickening.

  • This is very disheartening. I know your husband will get beyond this hateful, violent attack in time, but your poor dog must be really traumatized. I hope they catch these little cowards.

The Midwest Premiere of Horton Foote’s “The Old Friends” at Raven Theatre

If old friends were indeed synonymous with old money, the latest production of Horton Foote’s play wouldn’t need a translator, or even a reviewer. Most people could just trade one word for another and leave it at that. The exchange would be unspoken, unacknowledged and not at all unnecessary. That’s not what the Raven Theatre, […]

Paintball Attacks

My husband was walking our dog tonight around 10:45 when an older grey Jeep Cherokee pulled up, rolled down their windows and shot paintballs at my husband and our dog. They hit our dog in 2 spots and he is bleeding and obviously in pain. They hit the windows and brick of the building as well. What kind of disgusting thugs shoot a dog?! We filed a police report and were able to describe the car and passengers. Beware if you are out at night and see a similar vehicle!

  • Dear Vibeskat...You gave my referral to Blue Pearl ER a thumbs down. We had a very good experience there. Did you have a bad experience or maybe know something I'm not aware of?

  • Sandy/Wolflady long time resident rogers park

    Saw your husband and adorable Mugsy on the news last night. Hope this wil bring lots of attention to this situation and catch the idiots involved . like to see them punished
