Jeffrey Littleton Arrested

This man was arrested for committing battery against a senior citizen engaging in positive loitering on November 3rd. Court date is set for Dec. 15. Stay tuned for more details. Residents concerned about public safety are encouraged to attend this hearing.

  • Mamma Mia, This Thread is like one big old you're going to go have to do some community service or jail or something worse thread. Christ he's not even smart enough to shut the hell up before his hearing is he? I suppose I should be thankful because anything he says or does online that can be shown to a judge only works against him. Lithium much?

Seeking parking space

Hello neighbors, does anyone know how I can find out about parking spaces available for rent in the Margare Terrace section of Uptown? I live on Carmen and it's particularly hard to find street parking. I would be willing to pay someone to rent their spot.

  • Typo....meant Margate Terrace

  • Jeffrey Littleton 3rd Generation Uptown

    I believe the surface lot just west of Sheridan on Southside of Foster leases parking. It's close, but not technically Margate Park.

    Chicago police searching for 5 suspects in Uptown narcotics investigation
    CHICAGO -- Police say there's been an increase in violence in the city's Uptown neighborhood, with two deadly shootings in the last two weeks. It led police to open a narcotics investigation, targeting west Argyle Street. The narcotics team arrested eight people on felony drug charges, but they are still looking for four men and one woman, wanted in connection with the probe.

    Try tent city.

    Wow Mute, all you do is hate on homeless people. That's literally all you do. I refuse to mute you because you should be called out on your intolerance at every opportunity. That's not at all "neighborlike." If you can't say anything constructive, just mute yourself.

  • "ndrew534", I'm guessing Mute doesn't hate the homeless (though that might be you're myopic conclusion). . It's about CRIME. And the rampant and wildly out of balanced 'social services' that have enabled these types of crimes to happen for far too long.

    Mute, tell a PR that they are white and they will be insulted, although I am not sure why. They are proud to be Latino/Hispanic, & they should be. That is what God made them, just as God made me white so I am proud of that, and blacks should be proud too, as well as Orientals, and on.

    No, not a good way to get shot. Good way to keep criminals out of the neighborhood. If the person is legitimate, they should not have an issue with concerned neighbors asking them if they can help you.

    @Jill, how do you know the cops stopped him for walking while brown? Are you saying all cops are racist? I would rather the cops stop and ask him,. or myself, or my son, what he is doing, rather than turn a blind eye for fear of being called racist. Ask me what I am doing, and I will tell you what I am doing. I am not insulted, my son does not get insulted when asked either. Only time you will be insulted is if you are either doing something or get butthurt about being asked because you feel like you are poor victim by a racist cop. Get over it. I hope the cops stop and ask everyone especially young people what they are doing. If it helps lower crime, what is the problem with that? Same thing with stopping suspicious cars? I am sorry that your husband experienced that. If he was stopped for driving a junky old car, that is FINE. Let the cop stop him. If the driver is legit-we have all had hard times-then send him or her on their way, as they should have with your husband. If someone is driving a junker, and the cop stops them, and they are from 76th & Stony Island and don't have a real reason to be there, give them an escort out of town. What is wrong with protecting the area you live in?

    It comes down to, would you rather be a politically correct mugged victim living in a neighborhood with increasing crime because you don't want to actually keep bad activity out, or would you rather stand up for your neighborhood and have it be a peaceful, enjoyable place with good policing?
