In the past 2 weeks...bad things have happened on Walnut

1. Anybody know WHY a car ran over someone, crashed a chain link fence, destroyed a wooden front porch?

2. Anybody know WHY someone was shot?

3. Anybody know WHY someone was shot and injured today?

4. anybody know WHY a car was burned in the middle of the block?

Anyone know WHY CPD is failing the residents living on this block? Can u speculate? It defies logic. There are cameras 7114, 194, 7113 nearby. The highly touted strategic decision camera room is in the 11th District just steps from the Commanders' Office. Aerial satellite views show the entire route of start and end where bad guys go. Still CPD makes no arrests most of the time.

Do we have an 17% murder solve rate meaning 83% failure rate? Do we have a less than 30% crime solving meaning 70% failure rate. Those kinds of data mean MANY should be cut loose and sharper tacks hired. Maybe US military peacekeepers who are accustomed to working in bad areas like Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria could do a better job than what we have now. They would not be AFRAID which is the most common excuse we get.

Can u speculate as to WHY our police are not able to SOLVE crime issues here in EGP? Plz chatter here. WE NEED HELP solving this chronic problem frought with red tape, institutional barriers (like talking to a brick wall)...

There are better, faster, cheaper ways to problem solve than what we got. Can u contribute to the conversation here? THANKS

    http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2018/05/15/garfield-park-shooting-police-chase/

    Ring doorbell gives better crime alert that the Commander at 11. His typical response as is the response of his people is " this is an ongoing investigation and we can;t release any information."

    We deserve better information than that from the Commander. maybe we should go directly to the Police department responsible for press releases.

Unleashed dogs. What's the best course of action?

Feels like I've been seeing an uptick in the number of unleashed dogs over here K-Town. Sometimes just let out to wander the block, sometimes being "walked" without a leash and sometimes who the heck knows, but most of the time these are clearly dogs that someone owns, often wearing a collar.

Feels like I've been seeing an uptick in the number of unleashed dogs over here K-Town. Sometimes just let out to wander the block, sometimes being "walked" without a leash and sometimes who the heck knows, but most of the time these are clearly dogs that someone owns, often wearing a collar.

I keep my dog leashed or inside our fenced yard, but he gets really worked up when there's a dog loose wandering around. I'm worried that another dog will come after him on a walk or he or the other dog will find a way in or out of our yard and get in a fight.

As I understand it, Chicago law requires all pets to be leashed when not on their own property and there's a $300 fine for not doing so. So what's the best way to handle this? It's dangerous and illegal, but more and more folks just seem unwilling to properly leash their pet? Should I just call 911 every time?

I've tried suggesting to owners that they leash their dog, but I feel like a jerk and generally the response is not positive. I've only had one owner actually listen and that was because I gave him a leash and a piece of wood to cover a hole in his fence.
