Wing Stop Coming to Strip Mall at Roosevelt and Canal

This area of the neighborhood continues to develop and seems to show no signs of slowing in growth.  We wonder if this move has anything to do with the Buffalo Wild Wings opening at Taylor and Clinton?

    Wing Stop Coming to Strip Mall at Roosevelt and Canal
    Looks like Roosevelt is getting a Wing Stop: We can't remember what was there before, but seems like a decent location - albeit kinda hidden in the corner. This area of the neighborhood continues to develop and seems to show no signs of slowing in growth.

Feel like throwing something? Try an ax

Snell, 40, an IT worker from the Avondale neighborhood, was one of several hundred people who attended an open house at Bad Axe Throwing, 165 N. Loomis St., which opened its doors on Friday for a three-day open house in the Fulton Market neighborhood.

    Feel like throwing something? Try an ax
    Sunday was a significant and lethal day for Tricia Snell. In the morning, she went to a suburban pistol range to qualify for a concealed carry permit. In the afternoon, she went to an ax-throwing range to qualify for nothing in particular.

CPD to hire nearly 1,000 cops to combat surge in Chicago violence

Chicago Police officers spend six months in the police academy before they hit the streets for a probationary period that lasts a year. To get reinforcements on the street as quickly as possible, Johnson said he’s drafting plans to shift the police academy at 1300 W. Jackson into high-gear.

Ultimately, Emanuel wants to replace the outdated training facility with a modern academy near the 911 Center at 141 W. Madison. The police and fire departments would share the new academy.

    CPD to hire nearly 1,000 cops to combat surge in Chicago violence
    The Chicago Police Department will launch a two-year hiring blitz that will add 970 police officers to confront a 50 percent spike in homicides and improve detectives' ability to solve crimes, the Chicago Sun-Times has learned.

    The pro BLM, pro activist, pro protester mantra about evil cops is boring and untrue. Most of the recent martyrs like Oneal, Trayvon and Mike brown got exactly what they deserved. Rahm is a pay to play criminal who has traded city business for campaign cash with unnecessary building and bike lanes intended to enrich his war chest. The Roosevelt road fiasco is a perfect example. Now he is sucking up to the west and south side criminals to get votes. And all his bogus mentoring program will do is enrich his crooked black caucus allies. Nothing will change until the black community starts accepting responsibility. That will never happen. It's easier to complain than to work. It's easier to be a victim and blame the cops. Rahm and the rest of the democrats need the black votes and telling them to get it together doesn't fit into their victimization scenario. So it continues.

    So Finnegan and the other criminal coppers in the CPD who are all in jail for shaking down drug dealers, planting drugs on people and other illegal behavior bores you? Roosevelt Rd. is a great project. It's now much more pedestrian friendly. Get your rear out of a car and ride a bike or walk once in a while. The criminal justice system in this country is very broken. Liberal social policy has created generations of poor people who are dependent upon welfare and kept on it so that they vote for Democrats. Immigration policy is also allowing criminals in to our country. BLM is a Soros funded scam to destabilize America.
