Car alley Break-ins on the 1200 -1400 block of Winnemac Ave

So over the last 2 weeks, My family and I have chased off 4 black youths who walk down the alley breaking in all our neighbors cars at 2 - 3 AM every Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Calling the police does not help as they show up 40 minutes later if they every do. If not calling while my neighbor's car is getting broken into on 911 gets the snarky response that they will not send anybody out as the car...

So over the last 2 weeks, My family and I have chased off 4 black youths who walk down the alley breaking in all our neighbors cars at 2 - 3 AM every Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Calling the police does not help as they show up 40 minutes later if they every do. If not calling while my neighbor's car is getting broken into on 911 gets the snarky response that they will not send anybody out as the car owner needs to call. Mine you these were the same youths that tried to break in my car a week ago. We had to chase them off and this time they were shooting out 2 of the alley lights. No response from my alderman either about the light fixes or response to the lazy reply from the CPD. An people wonder why the city is seemingly getting more violent. The police do not come out anymore and any thieves know by the time they ever get around 30 mins later...they will be long gone.

Please make sure you set your car alarms and lock all your doors. Their not stealing the cars for now but breaking in them for stuff. 4 black youths. 2 girls and 2 guys.

    I live on this block and proudly put my real name and picture on here. In the past I have worked for 32nd Alderman Scott Waguespack as well as being a Illinois Financial Aid State Commissioner so I do kind of know how bureaucracy and politics works with CAPS and the alderman's office. You are all free to google my name. So I also do take pride in my city and state and want to help my fellow citizens. I do not want to get on some sort of argument with my neighbors here but I stand by my comments and have no reason to gain anything by this post. If you live here long enough, you will notice kids walking down the street checking car doors to see if they are unlocked, if not usually breaking windows to steal. If you honestly think our neighborhood is getting better, then more power to you, but I take issue that it takes very long for the police to come for crimes in progress. Leaving me to have to chase off these thieves. Is it safe or smart, No....... but to stand by idly only will attract them to my own home and neighbors. I tired of these criminals running thru our neighborhood and as a law student, I take exception to law breakers.

    Don't get too worked up Kelvin, Littleton and FGFM like to stir the pot on every block. They make the posts interesting from time to time. Just do us all a favor and keep calling the police, the alderman, and keep going to school. We don't need another casualty because you took the law into your own hands. If you are really that bothered to the point that you are making reckless poor choices like chasing a group with guns then maybe you should move before your family is stuck paying for your law school debt after your funeral.

    Anyway and to the point, let's concern ourselves with the problem at hand. I came home about 7:00 pm tonight and lo and behold a slew of unmarked and Squads were circling streets from Montrose and Magnolia and east. They arrested and confiscated a gun from the punk who was trolling the playground armed.
    That was the original intent of the post and comments regarding crime before we got off on this ridiculous tangent.

    Erickson's Deli Evicted: Is This the End of an Era for Decades-Old Fixture?
    ANDERSONVILLE - After years in limbo, it seems Erickson's Delicatessen may not be opening its doors again - at least not anytime soon at its longtime home at 5250 N. Clark St. A big green eviction notice appeared on the front door of the Scandinavian deli this week.

  • HarleyGrrl Why YES! People actually DO live on Clark St!

    They could be cranky - but what's wrong in saying that? I moved in in 1998 and was an outsider I'm sure. It didn't stop me from going in for a sandwich. Mr Erickson was always a hoot wandering around the 'hood. Andies was the size of 1 store front,...

    They could be cranky - but what's wrong in saying that? I moved in in 1998 and was an outsider I'm sure. It didn't stop me from going in for a sandwich. Mr Erickson was always a hoot wandering around the 'hood. Andies was the size of 1 store front, run down but served amazing gyros, George in his "thrift store" was also a character as were the ladies at the jewelry store and the Korean diner was an adventure. Augie charged you full price even if you were only eating the burger and tomatoes and the shoe guys can still be grumpy. I prefer people being real - and yes - as a customer it can drive you crazy but they all looked out for each other and the neighborhood. And to add to Joe's - Yelp brings out the Peeved, The Pissy, the Pretentious and the Entitled

  • Thanks HarleyGrrl for the perspective, and the glimpse into Ye Olde(r) Andersonville. For me, the charm of neighborhood shopping - or simply maneuvering within a neighborhood - is that it usually isn't homogenous. The personalities often make the business; sometimes we get them, sometimes we don't, but we are always free to shop elsewhere.

    Police Should Have Warned of Lincoln Park Rapes Earlier, Residents Say

  • If the police issue a warning every time they posses that amount of info the public would become desensitized to warnings.

    Its a tough call these public warnings, must be used as judiciously as possible.

  • Are people so stupid they do not know the potential for "havoc" exists everywhere, every time, and can happen to anyone? We can go about life wanting to blame others for what happens to us and never take any responsibility for our own safety. These crimes are NOT the first in these areas and, heaven forbid, don't we know LIncoln Park and especially the DePaul area have been alert areas year after year after year?
