Loud Block Party past midnight

Are block parties permitted to have live amplified outdoor bands playing past midnight in residential neighborhoods?

I'm wide awake because of the extremely loud block party going on well past midnight in Little Village right now, near Cermak and Albany. My neighborhood has had other block parties with live music. I've never heard it so loud before, and all other parties have wrapped up around 11 at the latest. I called 911 but don't expect anything to happen.

WE DID IT! WE MADE THE CUT!!!!

The Obama Foundation announced the four finalists today; The Universities of Chicago, Illinois (UIC) and Hawaii, along with Columbia University in New York. For anyone who does not know, WE approached UIC to have a university component. We formed a partnership, now we are finalists!

Here is part of the Obama Foundation's statement:

“We were amazed by the quality of responses to our Request for Qualifications and we are grateful to every institution that expressed interest in carrying President Obama’s legacy forward,” said Board Chair Martin Nesbitt. “These four potential partners have come the farthest in meeting our criteria and have each demonstrated a strong vision for the future Obama Presidential Library. We look forward to working with each institution to further refine their proposals over the coming months, and to presenting our recommendations to the President and First Lady early next year.”

    Alan,
    Your oversimplified respone suggests that you missed the point. The concept being illustrated is selective or prejudicial law enforcement, judicial process, and incarceration. If you don't believe that these concepts exist, I'm not sure what more I can do to demonstrate them to you? Of course personal responsibility factors largely into the equation! I never said it didn't. We can all acknowledge that fact. I wish you would have the courage to acknowledge institutional prejudice in our law enforcement and legal systems. Let me ask you, if you lived in an area where crime, lawlessness, and anti-social behavior was all you were exposed to, how likely would you be to participate in some way? If you went to a crappy school, your parents were in jail or on drugs, there were no meaningful jobs available, and you had to hustle on the street to survive... what would you do? I'm not justifying anti-social behavior but it certainly would seem logical that if you lived in these conditions, the behavior would be more statistically likely. Working the fryer at McD's isn't getting anyone out of this situation. Is $1300/month enough to pay for rent and necessities to live? I couldn't do it, could you? I think you need some insight to the environment you are so harshly judging? It might provide some perspective. All people deserve justice! Too bad only some people regularly get it!:(

    $1,300 a month could be enough to live if you are part of say some family, group home where everyone contributes something for expenses.
