Log Cabin Republican Calls Police on Wrong Woman

In what appears to be another case of calling the police because someone is Black, Morry Matson, Log Cabin Republican candidate for Edgewater's Mayor, has a lot of explaining to do. His last claim to fame was promoting a multi-million dollar carnival boardwalk in front of lots of people's homes and cutting off their unobstructed views of the lake.

    Black woman says CVS manager called police because she had wrong coupon
    Camilla Hudson wanted to use a manufacturer's coupon at CVS on North Broadway on Friday night, but a manager who said he'd never seen a coupon like that called the police, she said in a Facebook post. "So, THIS just happened: I had the police called on me for attempting to use a coupon @ the CVS Pharmacy located at 6150 N.
    https://chicago.suntimes.com
  • The important result is that CVS did the right thing. They publicly honored their customer, disciplined (fired) two employees for improper behavior on the job and preserved their reputation in the community. Matson's reputation was not damaged because it was less than commendable to begin with.

    I'm not sure what you say is correct. You don't know what transpired. They probably got fired because she was black and raised a hoot. Corporate PR people run scared every time someone hollers "Racism". They're use to Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton years of corporate shakedowns. Hope it never happens to you.

    Last year I witnessed a scene in Sarasota where a TJ Maxx clerk was accused of "racism" because she would take a food wrapper from a customer's hand to throw away. Instead, she pointed to a nearby trashcan. lots of hollering ensued and a lot of protesting was directed towards the camera in the ceiling. I hung around until the manager showed up to tell her that this was a baseless claim. This left a bad taste in my mouth.

    K: A legitimate coupon would have a bar code that would go thru. There's the rub.

Watching fireworks from Cycle and Saddle was a scary experience on July 4th if you were at Osterman Beach at Ardmore. 2 Private groups were constantly sending off HUGH fireworks in an attempt to compete with Cycle & Saddle. The noise was deafening- the sparks showered down on observers - and the Cycle and Saddle show was completed blocked out. Despite the very dangerous situation- Not a policeman in sight despite the obvious illegal activity. Watching Cycle and Saddle fireworks was impossible. Many finally left - and i suspect will never return to Osterman Beach for fireworks. This is a shame - a few individuals were allowed to ruin what should have been a great event. I suspect the high rises surrounding Ardmore were not happy either. Did they call police? The Alderman needs to give this appropriate attention next year. What a shame.

  • headsup not available

    not the black high rise - we were on the Ardmore side of Osterman beach and they were shooting big rockets on that beach - sound blasting off the high rises and had sparks settling on the beach causing people to scatter creating a wide 'no man's land"

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    Why don't you just join Saddle and Cycle, headsup? I believe you claim to have the proper upbringing and background. That way you can enjoy the fireworks from the club next year and won't have to put up with the riff raff on the public beach. If you apply, though, I suggest you use the proper name for the club and not Cycle and Saddle as in your OP.
