    Hey Ald Solis just another Hate Crime in the 25th ward, and these criminals are putting our lives in danger, and their not arrested, again.

  • Exactly!
    Solid what are you doing about this?
    Talk?
    Nothing?
    More nothing?
    Perhaps you're encouraging it by keeping your usually loud mouth shut.
    Despicable leadership that can't be called leadership at all.

  • Joe Chicago Transplant

    Not sure changing a name is going to make an unsuccessful business successful. You need to have great food, an ambiance that people like, you need to price your menu at a profitable rate, and you need to market successfully. In addition, you need enough capital or some kind of investment to keep you going for at least 3 years without the business being profitable.

Two more boys likely face more serious charges after a University of Chicago police officer was punched in his face while trying to break up a fight at 9:40 p.m. Tuesday night at 53rd Street and Lake Park Avenue.

    HYDE PARK - Hundreds of teens gathered in Hyde Park to party as Mayor Rahm Emanuel looked on and Barack Obama's motorcade pressed through the crowds. Nearly 400 teens came out Tuesday night in a much toned down repeat of last year's "Halloween Purge," where more than 1,000 kids from across the city came to party and hang out and in the process get into fights and tear up parts of the neighborhood.

    Jeffrey Littleton the "wilding" incident you referenced was of course a very infamous incident, but was by no means the only incident of "wilding".

    My roommate was attacked by a mob of very young teens on the lower East Side near Thompkin's Square Park.

    The teens you reference were yes, released from prison by a legal maneuver that had one of assault, robbery, attempted murder and gang rape perps confess to doing all these crimes himself - which was impossible. He was already in prison serving a long sentence for some other crimes, thus he had nothing to lose by this false confession.

    And the Central Park jogger that was gang raped and beaten nearly to death was one of many other victims who were beaten and robbed by this mob.

    Here in our Hyde Park Chicago community we've had 2 straight years of Halloween wilding mobs doing something renamed a "purge" - it's involved some beatings and many robberies with a mixture of local Kenwood students and teens from other neighborhoods.

    Some Chicago crime blogs are writing that these outside neighborhood mobs of teens are doing these crimes in Boystown as weekend recreation. At least with Hyde Park it's only been once a year on Halloween night.
