Gang art on wall

Saw this on the wall of a building at St. Louis and Cullom. Right across from Patrick Henry.

    @JJ: Thanks, but no rain man here. I just think data is beautiful, that there is a treasure trove of information in graffiti, I am fascinated by graffiti, and I wanted a project that I could get really obsessed about to improve some of my software engineering skills. Additionally, I got tired of not being told accurate information regarding gangs at CAPS meetings.

    Food for thought: CPD only does a gang audit once a year (this was told to be by officer at 17th). In my opinion, gangs' are dynamic/fluid enough that 3 months later (due to arrests, location shifts, etc) much of that data is useless.

    Monitoring graffiti, with a large enough data set, gives you real time details of movements, conflict, etc.

Stolen Honda

Drake and berteau, Friday afternoon. Plate begins with S410...

    Couple years ago my Civic was stolen as well - from Berteau & Monticello. Never recovered. Looks as if that's not a good model to own in the city. :(

    What year was it? I think that matters but not sure.

Safe passage like this sounds good!

I would absolutely feel better about my kids in school if these were posted around it. The picture is from an Oklahoma school district.

Finally, it got out in a news interview!

I was watching fox 32 this morning. They interviewed a man from Englewood. He was talking about all the shootings in the news. He said everyone is concerned with the Police shootings. He said that the real problem in Englewood is the "black on black" violence. Finally, the truth made it out!! This stuff is usually edited out.

Maybe this post will be deleted before the gentle people have their coffee

Mama Mia's Pizza

What happened to Mama Mia's restaurant on Central and Belmont? They are closed down, with a revoked license sign in the windows.

Censorship on Everyblock

I noticed most of my responses to a recent shooting by golden nugget, were deleted. I'm curious why. I thought my posts were tasteful. Who censors everyblock?

Free kitchen stuff!

We are clearing out our kitchen and putting pots and pans, glasses, and misc items in a box in our alley. 2440 N Hamlin!

  • The best days of year to alley pick are right before April 1 and October 1, two days when a lot of leases expire and people get rid of usable stuff to lighten their move. You have to be faster than the scrappers though. Last month I found a sturdy broom in the alley and it brightened my entire day.

    recycling is great however there MAY be some bad mojo about recycling brooms. Check out this website. I visited this company a few years ago.

    Victor, Colorado is an old, almost abandoned gold mining town high in the mountains above Colorado Springs, Pikes Peak area near Cripple Creek. Definitely worth checking out for a few hours or so.

Hit and run on central park at Wrightwood

My husband and I were walking home crossing Central Park on Wrightwood and were struck by a truck going turning north on Central Park. Please message me if you saw or heard anything. We are both okay, but banged up.

  • Peter W. 20-yr Logan Sq Resident

    I am very sorry to hear this. I hope 911 was called and you had a chance to be medically examined.

  • Do you have any more of a description of the truck or the time it happened? Please call 9-11 and report this. There are cameras everywhere, and hit and runs deserve a serious investigation. Glad you are OK.

  • We called police and filed a police report with a description of the vehicle and I was able to catch a partial plate. It was a dark colored, perhaps Navy blue, pickup truck with a lighter colored trim around the bottom. It happened at 12:30 a.m. We did take a trip to the hospital and are very lucky our injuries were not more serious. Today we feel, well, like we got hit by a truck! Be careful out there folks!

"DIB's" season is coming

I'm looking forward to all the free lawn chairs coming up. The fact that people think they can reserve a portion of city street is horse feathers. When I walk my dog, I make an effort to clear that garbage and free up spots. Parking is tight enough with the houses containing 20+ occupants.

    @John, Till is starting to look a bit like Karl Lagerfeld and I have to confess that that kind of scares me ;)

    @Gil, We live in a county in which the higher education system is not uniformed. You can go to an Ivy League School, you can go to a prestigious (yet not Ivy League) school, you can go to places like DePaul which are not Ivy League yet get a few high prestige accolades for a few programs, etc and then you have a whole myriad of institutions that call themselves “universities” and manage somehow to maintain their credentials yet the course load is not very rigorous. For me spending more years than the average, yet in a school that has higher standards is a logical consequence when you pursue quality. You can go to a questionable program and finish in 2 years but is it any good? If I were an admissions evaluator in grad school, I will not look at the years that people spent studying for a degree but at the courseload and the institution they attended. Remember how Dale Gribble got “credentialized” to do rogue “law enforcement”? See my point? ;)
