Animal abuse

I saw this man and woman on a northbound red line tonight. I'm not sure when they got on, but somewhere around Fullerton or Clark/Division, and they were still on when I got off at Morse. They had a dog stuffed into a suitcase with it's head sticking out--the zipper appeared too tight on it's neck. They continually batted it's face and seemed almost like they were trying to stuff him inside further.

I confronted them and they seemed completely...

I saw this man and woman on a northbound red line tonight. I'm not sure when they got on, but somewhere around Fullerton or Clark/Division, and they were still on when I got off at Morse. They had a dog stuffed into a suitcase with it's head sticking out--the zipper appeared too tight on it's neck. They continually batted it's face and seemed almost like they were trying to stuff him inside further.

I confronted them and they seemed completely unconcerned about the mistreatment. I switched cars to call the police, and also informed the driver. Two other witnesses said that after I switched cars, the couple became verbally belligerent. I don't believe any action has been taken yet.

If you see these people carrying this dog around, please report to police or animal shelter!

Loyola Redline Mugging This Weekend

I'm not seeing it in the news yet but apparently a young man was mugged Saturday night and has now died from the head trauma he sustained. A friend of his posted this on facebook. "He was found early Saturday morning at the Loyola station in Chicago. He was laying at the bottom of the stairs with his wallet missing and with serious head trauma."
This is all the info I have and just wanted my neighbors to be aware.

  • I own a very expensive jacket and at the Howard El two young men ran right at me and jammed their hands in my pockets.
    I kicked one with my steel capped boot and I hope he fondly recalls the moment.

    Right at the turnstile. The cta security guards know who's who and they don't do anything to protect paying customers.

  • Thats a shame Lou..i usually walk around looking like a homeless person so people leave me alone ..and always have a weapon of some sort ..be safe my friend

Shooting went on for a few hours this morning

Did anyone else hear it Sunday morning. Sounded like more than one gun. Rapid shooting followed by a short pause to reload and more rapid shooting.

(I received this via a CAPS email)
As reported by one of our neighbors and verified by CPD District 24, an assault and attempted robbery took place at the Estes Avenue Metra viaduct on Monday, 18 December, at approximately 5:45 pm. According to the victim, with whom I spoke a few minutes ago, she and her daughter were followed by a man as they walked north on Ravenswood from Greenleaf. Upon reaching the overpass, the man assaulted our neighbor from behind and was she was struck in the head by punches as the alleged attacker attempted to wrestle away a backpack that the woman was carrying. A passing motorist stopped to lend assistance at which point the man fled and used the unsecured gate at 1790 Estes to escape the scene.

I am pleased to report that the victim of the attack is doing well as is her daughter. It is expected for them both to be a little emotionally shaken so, I take the liberty as a neighbor to offer our collective support.

According to the official description provided by Sgt Sisk of the 24th District, the alleged attacker was a Black male, 5'6" to 5'8" in height.

However, additional information provided by the victim's husband suggests that the man appeared to have a limp and spoke with a bit of a slur. This last bit of information, along with the official description, describes someone with whom a few neighbors (including myself) have had some interaction.

Sgt. Sisk is following up with Area North detectives on the additional information so; if any of you know this alleged attacker, or his whereabouts, please communicate this to me or directly to CPD.

Please be aware of your surroundings and stay safe.

marijuana regulation

There are bills in Springfield to regulate marijuana like alcohol. One of the reasons I am very in favor of this is that it would make the street business less valuable, reducing the violent competition for turf.
You can talk to our legislators in Springfield here:
