Editorial: A better way to dig into future snow scandals

...largest snowstorm in Chicago history. Sometimes a quiet phone call is unnecessary. Even though the 3900 block of West 51st Street has only two lanes of traffic and dead-ends before Pulaski and the CTA’s...

    Editorial: A better way to dig into future snow scandals
    Follow @csteditorials A little something - actually a big something - is missing from the City Hall inspector general's new report on Chicago snow removal. On Monday, IG Joe Ferguson said Streets and Sanitation plows deviated from their normal course after a big snowstorm in 20115 to clear the way to the home of powerful Ald.

Identify this graffiti vandal

About an hour ago, 2am, Friday, July 15, 2016, I witnessed this idiot vandalizing the property at 4223 W 55th Street and 4225 W 55th Street. His photo is attached. He was not captured. I believe he lives in the area, specifically around the 5600 block of South Kildare Avenue. He was with two others, except this is the one I saw vandalizing and they all ran their separate ways. About 1/2 hour later, I saw him again at 5600...

About an hour ago, 2am, Friday, July 15, 2016, I witnessed this idiot vandalizing the property at 4223 W 55th Street and 4225 W 55th Street. His photo is attached. He was not captured. I believe he lives in the area, specifically around the 5600 block of South Kildare Avenue. He was with two others, except this is the one I saw vandalizing and they all ran their separate ways. About 1/2 hour later, I saw him again at 5600 S Kostner Avenue, called the police again, but he ran into yards and settled into a house in the 5600 block of South Kildare Avenue. I don't know if he lives there. The first time, he had his backpack on, the second time, he did not. Police were called both times. The is the actual photo of him taken this morning on 55th Street.

  • C homeowner

    By signing Moon, this fool identifies himself as part of the crew called 3AM. They trashed the Pulaski Orange line last weekend. If we can get him, we might be able to get the other two.

  • BTW...can everyone figure out why these miscreants have that name-- 3AM?
    Duhhhhhhh....undoubtedly (as this topic proves), they are roaming around in the
    wee hours causing such mayhem. Everywhere you see their "equivalent of dog-piss"
    (i.e. tagging), please report it (for instance, scrawled on the side of the Red Eye newspaper box at Archer Ave. & Kildare).
    A BIG THANK YOU, West-Lawner for posting this report and the punk's picture.
    Next up, a police arrest is in order!

Burke’s street plowed early, often: IG report says

While nearby side streets became rutted and remained ice-bound for days, Burke’s lightly travelled 3900 block of 51st was cleared, salted and as passable as it is today within hours of the storm’s end.

    Burke's street plowed early, often: IG report says
    City Hall's inspector general confirmed Monday that Streets and Sanitation plows deviated from their normal course to clear a path to Ald. Ed Burke's fortress-like house after a 19.2-inch snowfall nearly 18 months after the Chicago Sun-Times revealed how the 14th Ward boss' block was plowed early and often.
