CTA Creep Post Removal Is Equal to Victim Blaming

When someone posts about an individual in the community who is doing things that makes someone fear for their safety and / or the safety of others, and does so WITH DETAILS GIVEN, YOU DO NOT accuse that person of things such as libel, defamation, etc. You especially DO NOT accuse that person of violating that suspicious actor's privacy WHEN THE PHOTO WAS TAKEN IN PUBLIC!!!

When someone posts about an individual in the community who is doing things that makes someone fear for their safety and / or the safety of others, and does so WITH DETAILS GIVEN, YOU DO NOT accuse that person of things such as libel, defamation, etc. You especially DO NOT accuse that person of violating that suspicious actor's privacy WHEN THE PHOTO WAS TAKEN IN PUBLIC!!!

When anyone is out and about in public, there is no reasonable expectation of privacy per state and federal laws, which is why we're allowed to possess and use cameras for still photography and videography.

Telling someone that they can't post the photo of a suspicious person, especially when that suspicious person is showing behavior consistent with that of a PEDOPHILE, is tantamount to telling other people who have photographed suspicious actors that they are also wrong.

I saw a post in the Logan Square forum here whereby someone photographed an actor who was "casing neighborhood cars" and posted the photo with a description of the behavior.

That the post was allowed to stay and that person wasn't attacked by the community, but I WAS attacked by all of you for reporting someone who might possibly pose a threat to the community along with the specifics and a photo, speaks to the on-going problem of sweeping male aggression and especially male sexual harassment (on-going staring and LEERING is STREET HARASSMENT) against women and children as being perfectly fine and acceptable.

Anyone remember the #YesAllWomen hashtag on twitter, and the support that got? Why are all of you trying to protect a possible pedo? What's up with that?

    Wow, I was going to be with you, for a second. But "Men are all violent and misogynist creeps"? And every other man hating vile you've spewed here... It makes me afraid for your children. Especially if it's true you have a son. I think you need to get some help, talk to some one, and be careful how you present yourself on the internet. Things like this can escalate quickly, and not in your favor.

    Okay miss Logan square gal. Let me break this down for you. You may say your not a troll, which I strongly disagree with. But one thing you certainly are is what they call a poo - poo stirrer. You toss out all these inflammatory statements which generally are baseless, just to get a reaction from people who read them. Then you just keep tossing out crazy stuff for people to read so you can continue stirring the pot.
    Now what would you do if the tables were turned and someone took a picture of you and called you a lesbian. In no way am I calling you that I'm just a saying hypothetically. Then posted your picture on everyblock and libeled you and said to stay away from this lesbian creep because I saw her scratch herself inappropriately. I'm not saying you are a lesbian I'm just using that as a hypothetical situation. Do you see how crazy that would sound. Use some common sense next time before you write these inflammatory statements just to get a reaction to your comment, and it maybe a good idea to take up a hobby that doesn't involve playing on the Internet. Maybe take a walk get some fresh air clear your your head. I hope you have a great day LSG, and hopefully you won't come across anymore." Creepy" people watchers.

favorite (or feared) laundromats?

hi. just moved back to chicago and my building is sans washer/dryer. looking for laundromat recos in the area (few miles radius around north/kedzie). nothing fancy, just someplace with good machines that's relatively clean and i'll be left in peace while i wash my stuff.

gracias.

  • I have been cursed with the same no w/d in building problem for the past year. I go to Bubbleland on Milwaukee ave just southeast of California. It's large enough and is also 24 hours.

  • When I didn't have washer/dryer I would go to Soap Box on Pulaski off of Belmont. Always clean no matter what time of day or night, machines always worked properly, and it's open 24 hours. That place also has free Wifi.

Alderman Rey Colon arrested, accused of DUI

Apparently, our local Alderman was arrested and accused of DUI recently...

http://politics.suntimes.com/article/chicago/ald-rey-colon-arrested-eisenhower-expressway-accused-dui/mon-07282014-1140am

I suppose we shouldn't be surprised if and when he gets away with it because of Chicago politics, but statements like this don't make me feel so warm and fuzzy:

“Did I make a mistake? We will see. Right now, I’m not at liberty to talk about the case at all. My legal counsel has advised me to really let folks know I have sought legal counsel and to allow the legal process to unfold at this time. I was on the Eisenhower, but I can’t really speak to it at this time.”

  • C. M. D. Avondale Triangle resident

    He got supervision for the first DUI, if the Trib's reporting is accurate, and had further problems with driving on a suspended license and driving an uninsured car. I did think the information about previous offenses involving driving/cars and bad judgement was disturbing, but the Trib was very unclear about the license suspension, and if there had been a conviction on that.

  • C. M. D. Avondale Triangle resident

    They seem to have updated the story - 1995 conviction for a DUI, subsequent citations for driving in a suspended license, and two years later, for operating a car without insurance.

St. Sylvester's Preschool

My daughter will be starting pre-k/preschool at St. Sylvester's next month. She's an early September birthday, so we expect she'll be in the youngest classroom (they divide by age as I understand it). I'm wondering if there are any other parents of new students at St. Sylvester's here who might like to meet up at Palmer Square for a play date one weekend before the start of the school year.
I'm also interested in hearing about experiences with the school that others would like to share. Thank you!

    Again, I should clarify. We made sure the cat wasn't roaming the streets once the circumstances with this individual became clear (the lady said a neighbor was checking on the cat, but the neighbor made very clear this wasn't the case). I have a hunch, wink wink, from the other people who took over, the cat found a good home. The saddest part was knowing she'd just get another one, which she did. What does one do? I'm not a cat-napper, but it breaks my heart seeing them out there. Alas, the world is full of rotten apples.

  • It'd be nice to know where she got it from. While there's no shortage of homeless animals, if somehow she got it from a shelter, the shelter would definitely want to know about this. Has anyone tried having a non-confrontational, educational conversation with this person about the perils that cats face outdoors? I was recently successful convincing some folks to keep their cats indoors after I trapped both of them during a TNR project...

Is this your cockatiel???

This little lady (?) showed up in our yard today, twice. Neighbor had an extra cage, so we captured her to keep her safe from local cats and kids. We're in the 3000 block of Troy, suspect she hasn't traveled far. Let me know if this may be your bird!

  • Nicole Semple Activist/Architect/Baker

    Hi Gii Gii S! The bird was initially very matted and unhappy. We kept her for a week, during which she did clean up and perk up and started to really seem better. Despite some neighbors doing some door-to-door knocking, we never found an original owner. My mother-in-law, who has owned cockatiels before, offered to adopt her. The bird is now living in a deluxe birdie condo in Gurnee, singing and strutting away.

Also, the owners are very receptive to getting new products (this is a changing neighborhood...) so please introduce yourself and make friendly suggestions if you think you'll be buying something on a regular basis or think others will be also!

I literally jumped out if the driver seat, leaving my car to the passengers, and tried to grab the kid. I want thinking very clearly, all I knew is that I wanted that bike back. Basically, I was about a foot or two away from him and he ducked into an alley and disappeared forever :(

FOUND CAT: All black male? very friendly found around Sawyer & Milwaukee

Hello neighbors--
My roommate and I found a cat stuck on our window sill last night, and helped him down so that he might go home. However, he's showed up on our window sill again this morning, so I'm thinking he's lost.

I am assuming it's a male since it's a pretty big cat (maybe 16 pounds?) and he seems to be all black with no markings, and light green eyes.

I'm planning on keeping him at our apartment until this afternoon when I can take him to Harmony House on Elston.

I hope this helps to find his owner! Let me know if you are looking for him!

    As Erica said, what ACS failed to inform you is that CACC does not guarantee that this cat will even make it to adopts. Only 2% of the cats brought to CACC even make it to the adoption room all of the others are euthanized if a reputable shelter does not pull them. And as we have it the shelters are full. The best solution is to reach out to your local no kill shelters for information on how to deal with this situation. We believe in TNR (trap, neuter, release) and TNA (trap, neuter, admit (if the cat is friendly). I have two colonies in the HP area and which some of them are friendlies. However, they are all s/n, vaccinated, and microchipped. The friendlies are on the waiting list to be admitted when space allows. Life outside is definitely a better choice than being brought to CACC where they can be killed when their 5-7day hold is up.

History of this old Gas Station?

I was having a debate with some friends over what this building at the corner of California and Altgeld once was.

I'd bet dollars to donuts it was a gas station, but is there anyone who's been in the neighborhood awhile who could add any further details?

Thanks so much.

P.S. I heard they were going to put a Trader Joe's in that building, but then the local slumlord jacked up the rent because someone stapled a flyer to a tree trying to give away a dog that they CLEARLY DON'T DESERVE TO OWN, because the dog was scared by a loud noise last night--was that gunshots or fireworks?

At least that's what I heard.

    Just today I saw Mr. Kowski sweeping the street in front of the old gas station at 5:30am this morning. To say the family maticulously maintains the property is an understatement - it's practically OCD. He regularlly re-asphaults the lot and even paints the curb yellow on Altgeld to make sure cars do not park too close to the driveway. True story (not satire) - check it out! It's a slightly off shade of yellow than the official color the city uses. Hell, I'd bet he'd even write you a citation! Glad to have neighbors that care so much about the property & its history (and rather entertaining to watch too), good for the Kowski's for holding on to their own little gold mine at Cali & Altgeld (although I agree & often thought an ice cream shop would be a nice addition)!!!

What if someone is trespassing on private property? What if they are in the act of vandalizing that property? How about if you witness someone dealing drugs on your street? It is the police departments job to protect and serve. This includes quality of life issues as well as criminal ones. While I agree that some calls are more important than others I will leave it to the professionals to make that decision.

    As someone with hens, i would say talk to them first for sure. They will most likely not want to be a nuisance to their neighbors. Just give them a few weeks for rehoming, if thats the way it ends up. Its hard to find someone to take a rooster...

    As someone with hens, i would say talk to them first for sure. They will most likely not want to be a nuisance to their neighbors. Just give them a few weeks for rehoming, if thats the way it ends up. Its hard to find someone to take a rooster who doesnt want to make him into soup. Sometimes you dont intend on getting a rooster, you cant legitimately tell if the chicken is male or female until an egg is laid. It could be that they just ended up with the little dude.
