    Experience Chicago's Booming Nightlife and Electronic Music Scene this August
    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.

Lakeview, Wrigleyville mugging victims describe violent attacks

    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.
    http://abc7chicago.com

  • The bad thing about these assaults is that justice moves slowly. Even if the police catch the guys, the victims won't appear to prosecute -- or the judge will release them to home confinement or some stupid stuff like that.

  • 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.

Door-to-door 'candidate' today?

My teenager told me that a young man (orange polo shirt, shortish, prob under 30) came to the door today saying that he was running for something (she didn't catch what)....she (inexplicably) talked to him for a minute or two at our front door and he repeated his name (which she doesn't remember) as he left, so she'd tell us who he was when we got home.

He did nothing inappropriate but it occurs to me to ask my neighbors (2800-2900 Burling/Oakdale?) if they encountered this guy and if anything seemed fishy about him...not election season, for starters!? (Yes, we've had a long talk about the fact that we aren't obligated to talk to people, but that ship has sailed for now.) Not 100% sure what I'll do if people say yes, they saw him and he seemed worrisome, but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it!

    Hi, I posted a similar post in here a few days ago. It was an odd pitch- I'm not keen on door-to-door solicitors anytime but this guy showed up and had no literature or anything and just said, "Are you too cool to vote for me?" As I was barely holding the door open, since I was hesitant in the first place. And when I said, "Vote for what?" He said he was running to be a mentor for inner city kids? He didn't mention any organizations or have anything even resembling something legitimate which was a big red flag and then I just said, "We don't allow solicitors." And politely said goodbye. It just seemed fishy and better safe than sorry. 800-900 block of Roscoe street.

    Seems strange, but some of these community organizations do have local elections but I would think this type of canvassing would be frowned upon, especially in a big city. And if your son is a teenager then one would assume he's not of voting age and wouldn't be able to vote anyway so why waste his time? It could be somebody casing the area, trying to peer into your home to see what you got so they can come back later.

    And just my own personal advice. What's done is done, so I would go easy on your kid and use it as a learning opportunity. At least he was open with you about what happened. If you are too harsh on him, then in the future he'll be more inclined to hide stuff from you. It's better to clearly explain why answering the door for strangers, especially if he's home alone, is a bad idea. Not saying that you didn't do this, nor am I telling you how to parent. Just adding my 2 cents. God bless
