Keeping a Close Eye on CPD's Glenn Evans

I'm not going to bore anyone with the details but I have (as well as many others in the 3rd District) witnessed first hand the abuses of power Commander Evans has delivered over his brief reign in Woodlawn. Now with a new commander at the helm, I'm relieved but only in part. With all the lawsuits and complaints against him, i'm afraid the CPD is going back to their old playbook, tossing him from district to district like a hot...

I'm not going to bore anyone with the details but I have (as well as many others in the 3rd District) witnessed first hand the abuses of power Commander Evans has delivered over his brief reign in Woodlawn. Now with a new commander at the helm, I'm relieved but only in part. With all the lawsuits and complaints against him, i'm afraid the CPD is going back to their old playbook, tossing him from district to district like a hot potato. If anyone knows his current tour-of-duty please let me know. I want to insure that his past follows him and catches up with him sooner then later.. As of yet, to the best of my research, he has been named a defendant in six different lawsuits over the course of his career.

    Just when i thought i read it all on Evans, i find another crazy assault.

    "In another case, settled for $71,000 in 2013, Evans got into a dispute with a patron at a restaurant who was with his infant son. After the patron complained to Evans that he was being rude, the officer allegedly grabbed the car seat holding the man’s son, causing the baby to fall and strike his head on a table. Evans also allegedly knocked the man to the ground and arrested him. He was detained for several hours. All charges were later dismissed." source: www.suntimes.com/opinions/29680761-474/cops-should-have-seen-evans-red-flags.html

    Which brings to-date Evans' settlements total to $196,000.

  • Todd Agosto Analyst/Investigator at Veritatem Cognoscere

    Correction, the total is even higher than the previous article reported:

    "The price tag for police-brutality claims against Chicago Cmdr. Glenn Evans: $282,467 and counting." plus to add insult to injury, he "...earns an annual salary of $154,932."

The Resurfacing of Cottage Grove

...just another prime example of how
"We're Getting Things Done"... BACKWARDS!

Nearly 4 lanes wide, 10 blocks in length, worth of road in good condition replaced... when there are hundreds of potholes throughout the ward that still need to be filled?

photo source: taken and compiled this morning

  • CeCe Edwards Grand Crossing Park Advisory Council

    again. you miss the point - this stretch of street paving is important to many drivers from downtown to 95th. Understand that roads highly traveled will get treated first.
    As a taxpayer satisfied with this particular stretch of repairs. Of course, agree with you that every pot hole should be filled and it appears they are one by one. Just conduct another survey in about month and let us know what you discover. will conduct my own as well.

  • Todd Agosto Analyst/Investigator at Veritatem Cognoscere

    No, you missed my point, which again is, compared to the majority of roadways throughout the Ward, Cottage Grove was in great condition. No different than 63rd which is also a high traffic route. Do you think resurfacing 63rd would be money well spent? Despite common belief, the government doesn't grow money from trees.

Midnight Circus was great

Took my grandson to the Midnight Circus at Grand Crossing Park on Sunday. It was great! He loved it. He sat right by the ring and now he wants to be a clown/juggler/dancer/singer. They are going to Ogden Park next. Worth the trip
