    Over this summer, two bikes were stolen from two different neighbors' back yards. Neither reported them, because their insurance deductible was higher than the value of the bikes. Garages have been tagged and my neighbors have overpainted the tagging without reporting it. An attempt purse snatch down the block from me resulted in the young woman moving back to Michigan, but never reporting it, since nothing was actually stolen.
    A policy change at 911 a couple of years ago has resulted in not sending a beat car out anymore for many classifications of crimes if they have 'already' occurred and aren't 'in-progress' jobs. You get referred to 311 to make a report and if people don't follow through, or if the crime classification is downgraded by the non-emergency call-taker, crime is effectively killed.
    Longer response from the police is part of it, but yes, a lot of crime is simply not being reported.

    In Wisconsin- there was in early 2014 a projection of a $1 billion surplus heading into the 2015-’17 budget period. Late in 2014, there was a projection of a $2.2 billion shortfall -- the difference between expected revenues and the amount of money being requested by state agencies. But the shortfall was never a deficit -- and some of the surplus was consciously spent by Republicans, as tax cuts. So tax payers opted for a refund instead of more money for more gov.

  • Thanks for clarifying. I stand corrected.

    However, I truly don't see how Walker "saved" Wisconsin. Its economic performance compared to neighboring states, even our basket case of a state, has been middling at best (and terrible compared to Minnesota).

    He's no Sam Brownback, I'll give him that at least.

Tavares R. Mosely, 30, of the 8200 block of West 141 st Street in Orland Park, was charged with criminal sexual abuse.

  • One charge, he should of also been charged with kidnapping and attempted murder. He threatened to kill her too. He has a chance to roam the streets again. This is why there is so much crime in the city.

  • Maybe some Mo'sely misconduct will occur in prison that can be reported, studied, and commented upon right here on our very own friendly neighborhood forum.

    A few years in prison, if he lasts, is not enough.

    I pray for the child that was a victim of this heinous act. In addition to all the psychological damage from which there may never be a full recovery, one can only hope that she doesn't also get the gift that keeps on giving of STDs.

    CPS Announces Revised Bus Stops for SY 15-16
    For students, this change will mean traveling an additional two blocks on average to reach their bus stop. Families have been notified of their children's new stop, which in most cases is the bus stop nearest to their home. If they have concerns about their child's assignment, however, parents may choose another nearby option.

    CJ, they’re not using the bus-cutting savings to hire more or better teachers. Casey, when my son was in high school the state was still reimbursing for transit, but that was over a decade ago so you may be correct.

  • @CJ Gladstone.... I may be wrong, but based on memory the CPS busing budget is c $50 million ?? annually. IMO if busing was not a cost item that $50million would not be appropriated and spent on anything.

    Back Story from memory = Chicago arrived at the current busing situation...

    @CJ Gladstone.... I may be wrong, but based on memory the CPS busing budget is c $50 million ?? annually. IMO if busing was not a cost item that $50million would not be appropriated and spent on anything.

    Back Story from memory = Chicago arrived at the current busing situation this way: Someplace c. 1965 Chicago's public schools were found to be separate and unequal, with substantially more being spent on neighborhood schools in white neighborhoods than schools in black neighborhoods (Hispanics, Asians and others did not register at the time). The school system was told to level the spending but that proved too hard to do in an acceptable way. So the court decided to let parents bus their kids to a school of choice, making the disparate spending patterns less motivating/source of complaint. White percentage of students in the system went into rapid decline and now is someplace c 11 - 13% (depends on who's stats you believe). So the courts recently said there was no longer a reason to bus for integration & level spending. But the bus habit remains because some schools/areas are deemed more desirable than others. And by direct awareness in some cases the long bus ride constitutes a free baby sitting service. TL:DR = the CPS tries to budget educational program costs uniformly across the whole City. Separate from that the buses cost c. $50 millions?? a year because of parents chasing after schools with better reputations --- which might or might not be factually supported depending on the compared schools.

    TL:TL:DR Busing is not cutting into staffing.
