Residents are not being notified of neighborhood criminal activity in a timely manner.
If residents and guests are not notified by the city or association management companies, the criminals are free to attack again until they are caught.
There must be a better notification system sent immediately once an attack is reported by a victim.

  • robin in WRP I support a 28th Amendment 4Free & Fair Elections!

    Check with your CAPS facilitator; there may be a system in place

    I will do so. I tried to find the info on the CPD web site but it has so much information I could not find it. I will stop at the 18th & State Street station to get the CAPS facilitator.
    Thank you for your suggestion.

    I will look into each of these suggestions and register for important notifications. A repeat criminal, robber and sexual assaulter was roaming the south loop and ready to attack again. Fast work by the CPD got him arrested. Instead of attacking innocent people he'll spend the rest of his days in jail.
    Thank you to all who commented.

  • "he'll spend the rest of his days in jail."

    In a perfect world, not in Chicago. He'll sadly receive a slap on the wrist and be let back out sooner than you think.

    Were you talking about the commanders death?
    If so your right about the In Chicago. He'll sadly receive a slap on the wrist and be let back out sooner than you think.
    The politicians say they want to something. How about bringing back the death penalty for crimes like this
    But that will never happen with all the snow flakes and politicians with no Bxxxs

  • @JL

    You're off your rocker if you think that will happen. The psycho who did that will be in prison for quite a while. There's just too much evidence against him.

    However, I do wish they'd put as much effort into convicting ALL the murderers as they will with the commander's death.

    will be in prison for quite a while.So what your saying is he will get out
    How about this. Bring back the death penalty so people like this will not be getting out of jail. Instead be carry out of jail
    Also your words not mine.

  • This guy isn't going to receive a slap on the wrist, he killed a cop, it's game over for him this time. It's the slap on the wrists for his previous (non-homicide) violent crimes that need to be the focal here, and what judges let this filth back out on the streets before he finally hit the murder lottery. These liberal judges need to be publicly shamed and outed.
