The Riot Fest!?!?

My mom is 70 years old and it sucks she can't enjoy the park she pays so much property taxes for!!! I guess it's the hell with Latinos!!! And I like to know why all Puerto Rican festivals don't have a liquor license but the Riot fest did?!?! Is it cause it's mostly whites attending?!? Just wondering?!?!?

  • Riot fest is only south of division, so about 80% of humboldt park was still open to grandma. Was she trying to play softball or something?

  • Don't worry about all the revenue (tax $$) that those 3 days brought to Humbolt Park. It's allot more than the block I'm sure you grandma lives on. Oh don't forget all the local businesses (bars/restaurants/grocery stores) that benefitted from this also. I'm sure so of these business are owned by Latinos.

Bullhorn! Spaulding and Division, ahhhhhh!

I'm gonna rip the bullhorn out of that kids hand on Spaulding and Division. I asked these idiots to stop with this yesterday, but no. I'm not traditionally a complainer and I love Riot fest. I wish I could hear crazy loud music, but I don't. I can't hear anything but this little jerk yelling, "Riot fest parking, riot fest paaarrrrkkkkinggggg!!!" down at the most unfriendly church parking lot ever. Blocking off the street??? making a tidy profit and a Sh*t ton of noise. My goodness, way to take advantage. I don't want to hear a peep of complaining from that group EVER! I'm done venting now, but I might call 311.

Any ideas on what to do if you are racially profiled? and then cuffed and your van searched? Stopped for taillight which was out, asked what he was doing in the neighborhood? where he was going? blablabla. This happened to my boyfriend who visits my house nearly every day. He was coming to pick me up to take me out to dinner. Wearing a suit and tie. He was asked to stand right in front of their camera. He got their plate and car number. On our way out, we spotted them, strangely, driving through Humboldt Park. Not their district? Pulled up next to them, they saw us, we waved, and smiled and the passenger cop said "have a nice date" and drove off. So. They knew that we knew their car and them. Pardon the long post. Please advise.

  • First Defense Legal Aid deals with this kind of stuff. They also have a free police custody hotline.

I need to put up a No Loitering sign on my fence. Does anyone have any experience they can share? Can they just cross the street and be cleared from the sign violation? I've asked these guy's to find another place to sit around and now since they have absolutely nothing better to do. .. they actually PURPOSELY make it a point be there when I get home from work to taunt me and my family...has anyone ever had success getting their loiter's arrested?
