WitchCraft Christ Ask For Peace And Calm Protest

St. Louis County Grand Jury decision not to indict white police officer the fatal shooting of an un-armed black teen.

    I’ve been on the receiving end of several fairly major property crimes: car and garage break-ins, thefts of two bikes, guitar and snowblower, smash-and-grab while waiting in traffic resulting in theft of a new purse (with cash, checks, credit cards) and briefcase, had my checkbook swiped from my purse in Dominicks. Each time the CPD took a report and advised me to get on with my life. Same with friends here and in NYC who were mugged. Yet after Brown shoplifts a handful of cheap cigars from a gas station convenience store, he gets confronted for jaywalking, is recognized as matching the description of the shoplifter and ends up dead. Small-town cop with nothing else more exciting to do decides to be an avenger. (Not quite Inspector Javert pursuing Jean Valjean--cigars to make blunts aren’t exactly a loaf of bread for a sick sister--but hardly a menace to society). Did Wilson have a legal right to confront Brown? Yes. But did he exercise prudent judgment in picking the wrong fight? Duh. A young man is dead, a punishment way disproportionate to his original crime. A family is bereaved. A pattern of racial profiling is perpetuated. A community is torn asunder. Yet Wilson makes himself out to be the victim.

    I wouldn't be surprised, if over the next few years, we see a dramatic decline in the number of young people who seek a career in Law Enforcement. It's just too risky these days, and there are too many variables. Public School teaching is bad, but nowhere NEAR as dangerous and risky as being a cop. Besides having to think about preserving their OWN life, they must maintain a constant vigilance over how they handle a situation. All kinds of people can make judgements and pronouncements about the way the whole incident went down, but NO ONE really knows for sure. They're judgements are based on what they've been told, and they haven't been told everything (not by a long shot).
    I fear the day will come when no one will even consider entering the field of Law Enforcement. Truthfully, I'd think I'd work as a waiter in a high-end restaurant in preference to being a cop. Yes, some are arrogant and some make bad judgement calls, BUT where would we be as a society without them??? If that day comes, let's see how we'll like THAT cup of tea.
    Being a policeman has become the job from hell. Moreover, Public School teaching is not so far behind -- most notably in Chicago. It's easy to criticize, but not until one has "walked the walk" can they really understand what it's like to be a cop today. It ain't no cakewalk.

Is Don Gordon Serious?

OK - I keep hearing people talking about Don Gordon's purported candidacy for 49th ward alderman but, as many others have noted on Everyblock, he seems to have no campaign and no platform. I have googled him in various ways and find that the only information he provides is on his Facebook page - and even there, you have to look pretty deep to even find out he is running for alderman.

OK - I keep hearing people talking about Don Gordon's purported candidacy for 49th ward alderman but, as many others have noted on Everyblock, he seems to have no campaign and no platform. I have googled him in various ways and find that the only information he provides is on his Facebook page - and even there, you have to look pretty deep to even find out he is running for alderman.

As much as I would like to see Joe Moore replaced by someone who will prioritize the needs of his constituents over the mayor's agenda of privatization, I don't see how Gordon can expect anyone to take him seriously when it is evident that he is not making any serious effort to inform the voters of his platform, or even his candidacy.

While many mayoral candidates can take a chance on getting elected based on the "anyone but Rahm" sentiment of many voters, I doubt that Moore has alienated enough people that Gordon can depend on that same dynamic in the 49th.

  • You'll have to leave the EveryBlock troll land to learn about Don. And frankly you have to look pretty deep to understand what Joe stands for. Let alone what he's ever accomplished besides fatten his own wallet and screw up the 49th ward.

    First of all, it's D a n o n, not Dannon. Secondly, I'm not " speeding down side streets blowing out tires and slamming into potholes", and I am not a "wild and crazy man."
    I'm just a concerned citizen who believes in the process... And I also wish there were term limits. And I would say the same thing if my candidate had held the same office over the same period of time. Change is good, and change is important, and it discourages complacency.

    Like most of you, I have certain issues which concern me more than others. So let's get real hear... I play on the more/Moore aspect of this because it gets attention. Yes, it's not always funny, but that's not the intent. The goal is to get people to take notice and in that regard I have succeeded. And in doing so, most responses tend to agree with the concept that change is good and that "Joe must go." And if that apparent rate of agreement is As high as it appears, then we need to consider all those who are not on or following this website. So get the word out... Moore Is less, by a long shot.

    So I'll keep at it and hope that my good friend Don Gordon can take Joe out in the Feb. election. If he does, 49 will become a little bit better, maybe more. If he doesn't, then 49 will become a little bit Moore... And that's not a good thing.

    Don't push it Rob. Gordon is still trying to figure out what, if anything, he would do to improve education, business development and ward services much less the old Adelphi Theater pit. He can lecture about political science and governmental theory but is struggling trying to figure out what he would actually do in the real world of City Council. That's why people like Gernhardt and Morton have to speak for him right now. As far as accepting campaign donations go, once you lose an election and then lose again in court there's hardly anyone with real money who wants to invest in you at all. It's safe to say "I will not accept campaign donations." when hardly anyone will give them to you in the first place.

  • What mindless babble. Sounds like so many of your other past accounts.

    It's still amazing Joe even finds people who support his bullying, unethical, crooked approach to managing a ward. Except he doesn't even manage a ward. He just lines his pockets at our expense.

(Attempted) Mail Theft - Has Anyone Else Been Victimized?

On Tuesday, November 25, my wife discovered that two shipments left by USPS in the vestibule of our building (Howard & Sheridan area) had been ripped open to reveal their contents; whoever got into the vestibule decided that the contents weren't worth stealing so they left the ripped open boxes behind. I have no way of knowing whether there were any other shipments in the vestibule which this intruder decided to take with them.

On Tuesday, November 25, my wife discovered that two shipments left by USPS in the vestibule of our building (Howard & Sheridan area) had been ripped open to reveal their contents; whoever got into the vestibule decided that the contents weren't worth stealing so they left the ripped open boxes behind. I have no way of knowing whether there were any other shipments in the vestibule which this intruder decided to take with them.

A few weeks ago, a neighbor warned me that such robberies were happening frequently in the area. She had heard reports of a man & woman (working individually or in tandem) whose territory seems to be Rogers Park / Edgewater. Their M.O. is to try to gain entry by ringing a resident and asking to be let in because the buzzer doesn't work for "the person they're visiting; alternatively, they might claim to be from USPS/FedEx/UPS and want to drop off a shipment for someone else in the building who "isn't home." Once inside, they take what they can find in the vestibule and get out quickly before anyone sees/reports them.

Has anyone else experience this type of (attempted) robbery? A quick search of "mail theft" here on Everyblock shows that some other neighborhoods have reported this type of crime in the past, but I don't see any reports for it in Rogers Park yet.

In any case, be vigilant (especially with the holidays approaching -- there will likely be more packages left in building vestibules over the next month than are delivered at any other time of year). Don't buzz anyone into your building if you don't know the person on the intercom personally, *especially* if they're not there to see you. If they claim to be USPS/FedEx/UPS, get a visual confirmation (uniform; truck in the street) before you let them into the building.

    I have had three packages stolen from me, on separate occasions already since moving here (October) I live at Birchwood and Sheridan. Luckily they were all purchased from amazon and amazon refunded them for me and shipped me new ones. It helps to get to know your UPS/FedEx/USPS carrier and let them know not to leave packages unless you are there. Also report it to the shipping company because they keep track of things like that and that way they know if there is a problem in a particular neighborhood. If it was USPS it is a federal crime and you should report it to the post office. They have their own police that investigates mail fraud.

What About O'Connor?

There is a lot of discussion of Joe Moore on Rogers Park Everyblock - but a few of us in Rogers Park are in the 40th Ward, and our alderman is Patrick O'Connor. While I often disagree with Moore's votes in the City Council, he does have some redeeming qualities in terms of benefiting our community. O'Connor, as far as I can tell, not only rubber stamps anything Emanuel wants, but seems to be pretty much invisible to all but the real estate developers here.

If any of you know of anything O'Connor has done to benefit the non-wealthy people of our community, or have opinions, either for or against O'Connor's policies, I would be interested in hearing them.

Thanks.

Mayoral Candidate Dr. Amara Enyia Officially Files Petitions for the 2015 Municipal Election

http://us3.campaign-archive1.com/…

After months of campaigning, mayoral candidate Dr. Amara Enyia will stand with supporters to submit her petitions today for the 2015 municipal election. As the most unconventional of the declared candidates, she has amassed significant support from all sides of the city with her grassroots campaign.

“Today is the culmination of months of hard work on a campaign that will change the landscape of politics in Chicago,” Dr. Enyia said. “This campaign reflects a new type of leadership that is diverse, passionate, independent, and driven by innovative ideas."

So far, the campaign has been endorsed by Northside Democracy for America, Southside Democracy for America, the Justice Party and the Veterans Party of Illinois.

“Chicagoans want a strong, independent voice – someone not beholden to special interests or tainted by politics as usual," Enyia said. "Chicagoans are tired of the same players and their stale ideas that have only held the city back. The people want new energy, new voices and new ideas that can move us forward. It’s time Chicago has leadership that actually represents not just our today, but also our tomorrow."

Amara will be joined by supporters at 3:00pm today at the Board of Elections at 69 W. Washington for the official filing.

  • (Wasn't this about Amara Enyia, not Don Gordon?)

City of Chicago Department of Public Health inspectors yesterday issued citations to the owner of the vacant lot at 7070 N. Clark Street (southwest corner of Clark and Estes) for illegally dumping non-permitted fill at the property.

This was the second time the owner, Jason Vondrachek of Quest Realty Group, was cited for illegal dumping. Vondrachek was fined nearly $10,000 last May for dumping illegal fill at the same property. He was also cited for engaging in demolition work without a permit and a “stop work” order was issued against him.

He failed to appear at a hearing last July and a default judgment order was entered against him.

In a surreptitious attempt to avoid the stop work order, Vondrachek applied for a demolition permit in August, listing the address as 1767 W. Estes rather than 7070 N. Clark. My office has brought this to the attention of the City of Chicago Department of Buildings and have asked that the demolition permit be rescinded in light of the subterfuge.

Vondarchek’s company purchased the property last year after it had been foreclosed. A mixed-use condominium and retail development had been planned for the site, but it fell victim in 2008 to the Great Recession.

My Ward Superintendent, Dan Murphy, brought the latest incident of illegal dumping to my attention earlier this week and my office immediately asked City’s inspectors to investigate.

If you witness any dumping or demolition work at the site, please contact my office immediately, ward49@cityofchicago.org, 773-338-5796.

A man accused of the rape of a Rogers Park woman two years ago near the Lunt entrance to the Morse Red Line station pleaded guilty last week to three counts of aggravated sexual assault and was sentenced to 36 years in jail.

The sexual assault occurred in the early morning of December 19, 2012. As I reported at the time, the assailant's image was captured on CTA security cameras, which helped lead to his arrest.

The assailant, James Minor, age 20, has been incarcerated since his arrest. Under the terms of the guilty plea, he must serve at least 85% of his sentence and the time he has already served will NOT be credited.

I thank the Chicago Police Department and the Cook County State's Attorney for their arrest and prosecution of the person who committed this horrendous crime.

    This category of offender needs to be off the streets until he is incapable of harming another human being, period. This was an exceptionally heinous act of sexual violence by a true predator.

    CTA video surveillance showed the man moving between CTA stops, looking for a place to commit this crime and for a victim. He settled on the Lunt Avenue stop after discovering it was under construction and not lit at all, which allowed him to attack the victim just yards from the entryway, in near total darkness in the early morning hours.

    Later on the day of the assault, long strings of temporary lighting were strung across the area now occupied by well- lit bike racks. While CTA and other city service providers couldn't have known this monster would use the situation precisely as he did, that area should have had the temporary lighting it received after it was too late.

    Sexual assault trials are often psychologically brutal for survivors. The woman who stepped up to help keep this individual off the streets absolutely saved others from his violence. I don't know where that kind of courage comes from, but I am grateful to her for doing something she never, ever should have been asked to do.

    Thanks for your perspective, Jim. I always feel bolstered when I hear a man express a real understanding of the heinous nature of sexual violence against women. It's sad, but there are still people who don't really get it. I agree w/ you, too, that the kind of predator who roams the street, on the prowl for a random victim to assault is a couple of steps up in dangerousness from other sexual predators. These predators are very resistant to behavior modification. Getting them off the streets and segregated from society for as long as possible is about the best we can hope for.

    Mac, I take exception to a couple of things you said. The sentence given to this offender is severe, as these things go. I've never heard of a life sentence (without parole) given in this kind of assault.

    Another thing you said is about rape "ruining" the victim's life . Not to minimize or downplay the gravity of the crime, but I haven't seen the lives of people being ruined. There's a period of adjustment and healing, but the vast majority of rape victims are able to work through the trauma and scarring, put it behind them and lead normal lives.

Violators may get slammed with a $150 (minimum) towing fee, $60 ticket and a daily storage fee of $20. Cars will be towed to auto pounds at either 10301 S. Doty Ave. or 701 N. Sacramento Ave.
(In our neighborhood Devon and Clark are streets affected. http://www.cityofchicago.org/content/dam/city/depts/streets/supp_info/Snow20112012/Snow%202013%20-%202014/2014_15_Winter_Overnight_Parking_Ban_Map.pdf)
The ban, which does not depend on snow, will be in effect until April 1.
Year-round, there are signs up restricting parking where there is more than two inches of snow on the ground, or what's known as the Arterial Street Snow Route Ban.
(Many neighborhood streets affected by 2" snow ban. http://www.cityofchicago.org/content/dam/city/depts/streets/supp_info/Snow20112012/Snow%20Program%202013.2014/2inchparkingbanmap.pdf)
You've been warned!
