Boy shot in Ravenswood Gardens

Terrifying, disgusting, and disheartening. What can be done to stop this nonsense?!?

http://voices.suntimes.com/news/breaking-news/person-shot-in-lincoln-square/

  • John P Manufacturer Ravenswood

    It was a local gang banger hanging out in Jacob park with a gun and accidentally shot himself, then made up a story about a drive by. That park has been a LK hangout for at least 15-20 years.

    We need to take control of our neighborhood because the city surely won't or too slow . These CAPS programs have helped but with the cities limited resources , we have to take the matter into our own hands. We need to eradicate these thugs period. We can if we come together and fight it. Power in numbers. Need thoughts/suggestions from everyone:

    Start with:
    1. Hidden cameras in all alley ways and port if entries into the neighborhood. Catch these idiots in the act so they can be prosecuted. Especially their hangouts spots. I don't mind contributing. A few bucks from each household will easily fund this. "Smile you're on camera" Signs help deter some criminals....post them.
    2. Protect yourself, your family and citizens. Support the 2nd amendment and arm yourself. Let's hope we never have to use it but is rather have a law abiding citizen be armed than a thug. I know there are mixed reviews on this, but statistics prove it. It works.
    3. Landlords....do your due diligence and perform background checks before you rent out. It will save you a lot of headache... Check with CPD on which resources to use. A lot of the websites are garbage and cannot be trusted.
    4. Call 911 if you see something not right. Don't expect them to come right away but everyone has a cell phone. Record the incident if you can.
    5. If a street light is out, call 311. Try to keep dark areas lit.

    These are a few to get started. Would like to discuss in future CAPS meetings. Enough is enough! Time to do something instead of waiting for someone else to do it!

Shooting on Virginia Avenue

Does anyone have any more info about the shooting that took place last night (Tuesday) at 11 pm on the 4700 block of N. Virginia? I didn't hear anything, but wondered if anyone else heard/saw anything.

  • sogoodat47 Property Owner and Resident of Lincoln Square

    Ooops, sorry for not reading further, I see it was not a drive by.

  • George F in Ravenswood displaced New Yorker

    Back in the 80's and 90's, that park was a Latin King stronghold, but no more. I'm sure that some knuckleheads that have just been released from jail after twenty or thirty years have gone back there thinking it was still like the old days. That boy's home across the street, south of Lawrence doesn't help.

Nanny Share Advice?

Hi Everyone,
Does anyone have any recommendations regarding nanny share options in our neighborhood? We are expecting a baby in the beginning of February and I will be returning to work in May. We wanted to be proactive and start searching now for a family to pair up with in the hiring of a nanny for that time frame but most of the sites I've looked on (nannyshare.us, sittercity, care.com) will not allow you to search for care starting beyond the end of this year. We will be first time parents and all of this is very new to us so if anyone has any advice or recommendations they would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

  • You should join Neighborhood Parents Network, npnparents.org. It has an entire childcare posting section where you can find nannies and hook up with others for shares. They also have lots of programming, a pretty active chat forum, and tons of info on schools. It's about $45 a year to be a member. And they have new parent groups as well.

  • robin in WRP Tired and Cranky

    I was also going to suggest NPN. They are a great resource for new parents.
