This is ridiculous. What are we suppose to do? Continue to be victims for these animals?

  • Oosha Cardwell BBQ Dude


  • Eric Pepeson NW-side deplorable, based-stickman, commie-crusher

    Although alarming, these didn't all occur last night, they span from the last 3 weeks. What's interesting in one of the reports is an officer was present in one of them and failed to apprehend the sh-t head.

  • Eric - these all happened last night (within a 6 hour period). 13 others (on top of this) happened over the past 3 weeks.

  • krw

    It still amazes me that some people refuse to acknowledhe the rise in crime in these areas. Most likely because they dont want that reality to affect their property values. Rahm included in that group.

  • When is the next CAPS meeting?

  • Gil Jimenez Private Investigator; IL concealed carry trainer

    Here's the take away quote:

    " The district did not have enough police to handle all of the incoming calls at the time and officers lost track of the victim..."

  • paul in jefferson jefferson park resident

    Too many excuses too high pay with too much overtime and high crime what is chicago doing?

  • Carry a Spyderco knife, I have for 21 years. If you stab one attacker that other will run away. As far as someone showing you a gun, take it away from them or stab them in the throat. Easy techniques to learn, even for a disabled person.

  • chigirl10. That is some very dangerous advice you are handing out. Have you ever stabbed someone in the neck during an armed robbery with a gun? Very dangerous to give out advice like this.

  • My apologies, I meant to say with proper training. I have never been stabbed, only shot at and I am disabled and trained.

  • chigirl, I think it's great that you've taken steps to be able to defend yourself.

    I also think it's great that you highlighted -training-

  • Yes. Hope the offender didn't take the same training.

  • throat stab is a pretty good way to go. there is also some soft skin around the temple you can try to pierce!
