Question about the carjackings

It seems that we have tens of carjackings every week. Got me thinking. What is this doing to the car insurance costs in Chicago? And can the victims whose cars get totalled sue the thieves direct or does the insurance sue the thieves?

  • Oftentimes the vehicle is recovered undamaged.

  • insurance costs are going to go up, the insurance actuaries will analyze the claims paid, and adjust premiums accordingly, hey crime ain't free. and don't forget, you get to absorb your deductible.

    you want to sue a carjacker, good luck, you would be suing a gangbanging pos. if he/it were a responsible member of society, he/it wouldn't be carjacking.

    don't forget, that thanks to sheriff dart and sa kim foxx, all these pos's when caught are going to get a personal no money bond and be on the street without delay to reck more havoc.

CHICAGO - Residents of Chicago's Uptown neighborhood should be on guard after reports of three separate muggings that occurred in just 15 minutes Wednesday night.
The first robbery happened around 7:30 p.m. near West Buena and North Clarendon avenues. The victim said four males attacked him and ran east, toward Marine Drive.
Right after that, another man was reportedly beaten up and robbed in the 700-block of West Bittersweet Place.
Minutes later, the group reportedly beat a 50-year-old man to the ground, but he was not robbed. The attackers ran north on Clarendon. The victim was treated at a hospital.
There is surveillance video of one of the violent attacks. The robbers appear to be between 15-18 years old.
I have been in contact with the investigating officers of these incidents.
As I have recording cameras surrounding my estate on Hutchinson and Clarendon,
I will check to see if there is anything that can be helpful to police. I have reported this information to the police.

    " I'm not sure why this keeps happening"

    what has changed that would stop it from happening?

    "My friend and his pregnant wife have a condo in that exact area, and I do worry about their safety"

    im not sure if a pregnant woman would be seen as an easy target or just the opposite since if caught there are added charges.

    why would anyone want to raise children in that area? Hopefully they dont plan to stay long!

  • DEAR ALL:
    Concerning the rampage of muggings November 8th, I received a call last night from the lead detective: one of the 4 criminals is in custody. The CPD is now interviewing the suspect to turn in the other 3 which I am confident he will in exchange for reduced charges. So this good news to enhance safety for our neighborhood.

    HAVE A WONDERFUL THANKSGIVING MY FRIENDS !!

    Rock Engravings of Dogs on Leashes Show Pre-Neolithic Good Boys
    A new study of prehistoric rock art reveals how hunters in the Arabian Peninsula pursued prey with dogs over 8,000 years ago - and even controlled their packs with leashes. The engravings represent the earliest evidence for dogs on the Arabian Peninsula and might even stand as the earliest depictions of canines yet, as Science first reported.

    I think they and the States’ Attorneys and defense attorneys all know about it.

    Again, I haven’t researched it. But I doubt anyone has even qualified for those 3 strikes. Meaning nobody has had two prior, separate convictions for the heinous felonies listed and folllowed it up with another such conviction. I’d assume any of the felonies would have resulted in perhaps a 25-year sentence. Two of those would be 50 years. Assuming the person was 18 at the first conviction, and there were only 2 years between the first release and the second conviction. That’d leave you with a 70-year-old needing to commit another heinous crime.

    It needs to be a broader list of what felonies count as “strikes.” And a system that doesn’t use those strikes to pressure perps into pleading to lesser crimes to avoid a strike.

Be careful out there today - streets and sidewalks glaze ice

I just returned from being out. I was east of Ashland Ave. at about Fullerton. The side streets and sidewalks are glaze ice. Cars are fishtailing and skidding trying to stop. I tried to stop at one intersection and forget it --- my car just kept going and stopped about the middle of the intersection. It was that way all the way until Western, where it's not so bad, but is still wet and looks icy in places.

Bicyclists are having a very hard time of it. They skid if they try to slow down or stop, and then when they put their foot down they slip.

So far the main streets are just slushy and are safer.

    Mndsgn designs lounge love funk for hip-hop Heads
    "It's so hard to read anything you're expressing / it's so vague / we need just a little clarity," Mndsgn croons woozily on his 2016 album Body Wash (Stones Throw Records). The line is funny because it's so baldly inapplicable; everything about hip-hop producer Mndsgn's music, from his consonant-clotted name (pronounced "mind design") to his bubbling lounge funk, is obscure and wavering.
