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?

  • Mute Mute Me

    "What is this doing to the car insurance costs in Chicago?"

    Nothing if you have liability.

    "And can the victims whose cars get totalled sue the thieves direct or does the insurance sue the thieves?

    Neither if the theives arent caught and if they are caught not sure what your gonna collect from someone sitting in jail.

  • I must watch too much court TV, because I see victims (or plaintiffs) all the time suing someone who totalled their car go court for damages when the insurance company only covers a limited amount of money.

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.

    I wonder if any of the previous owners are reading this post? My building is in the process of a deconversion, the building listed about a week ago. Wondering how long the entire process took? Do they feel like it was a good deal? Did the board make any stipulation for owners to rent back to the owners if they weren't ready to move?

    This kind of situation is not always ideal if you've paid for and lived in your home for many years. I'm guessing this was maybe the case with some in this building. But if 75% of the ownership votes yes.......well then, you gotta roll with the punches, which can be hard for some of the elderly, disabled, etc, etc, even if your faced with a special assessment. I hope they got a good payout for the % of ownership they had in the building.
