  • Undercover Brother retired gang member. Humboldt park resident

    Darren Wilson was cleared of not violating Michaels civil rights. Which really hard for any DOJ to prove. The only reason he didn't face well deserved state charges, is because of good ole boy Bob McCullough, who let perjurers on the grand jury. And if the authorities did decide to watch me, they would be really bored. Retired bangers don't have exciting lives. We just argue on the Internet with white bigots and conservatives.

  • Michmine EHP

    Well that's a problem, GHGN. I'm not even a liberal (or a conservative, I'm somewhere in between). But I am rational. You're jumping to conclusions that aren't supported by the information you have. That's the problem with this entire debate--too much passion (and name calling), too little reason. On both sides.

dog house/carrier theft

I know this is impossible to pursue but I'm just tired of it. This is the second one!!!. If any neighbor just happens to notice the appearance in their neighbor's yard of an extra large dog carrier, tan with metal gate on the front and splits in half. I know they are common but this one was huge. SO I doubt if it went far. It was stolen from the block of 81st and Marquette Ave. On Friday or Saturday night./ pls call 773-800-0242. I have markings on it so I can prove mine. I would have been wrong if I let the dog out on them.

  • Be sure to report it to police.
    I doubt it will help in the return, but the info is needed for crime statistics on quality of life.

    Maybe chain/lock down the next one?

  • walkdar diehard South Shore Resident since 1974

    you are so right. I was not going to report to police but now I will. Thanks. And I will definitely lock down the next one. By this being the second one stolen I should have locked this one down. Just thought lightning wouldn't strike twice. They are not metal, they're plastic. But I guess anything of value can be stolen

Secret recording divulged by defense in shooting of Chicago cop

    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.

Public Urination Hot Spots Puddle Near CTA Train Stops, Bar Districts (MAP)

Since 2013, police issued 77 tickets at 940 W. Addison that netted $20,750 in fines.

Police officers wrote 59 public urination tickets in the alley east of the L tracks at 22 E. Roosevelt Road netting $18,400 in fines.

In the last two years, police wrote 30 tickets raking in $5,760 in fines at 1514 N. Milwaukee.

Anderson said the nearby public peeing probably happens about as frequently as it did in the alley behind City Sole’s last location at the crossroads of North, Milwaukee and Damen, a six-corner intersection some locals call “The Crotch."

In Englewood, Preston Higgins told me he knew all too well that the alley between the CTA Green Line stop and the convenience store where you can get a can of beer for two bucks at 6316 S. Ashland doubles as an unofficial public toilet.

• At 14 W. 95th Street, the closest alley to the southernmost Red Line stop, police issued 45 public urination tickets.

• Steps away from the Wilson Red Line Stop at 1107 W. Wilson, police wrote 25 tickets that racked up $8,850 in fines.
