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

    Guess we made the news this am. Firey crash was a result of shootings on Walnut. Source below

    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.

Are u a filmmaker? Want to earn $400. My neighbor is trying to get footage.

We have not been able to clean up the Kedzie/Lake area in decades. A neighbor is taking a bold step by asking someone to make a video. The video will be used to send to government agencies including the Mayor and Police and ask that they ENFORCE LAWS.

Are you a filmmaker? Are you interested in helping a neighborhood recover from blight? This might just be up your alley.

  • Westinghouse High School reviewed by a parent

    My Freshman from a Charter elementary and seems to be adjusting well. Teachers reply to email & give feedback almost immediately. I've had great to average experiences when I've pop in to the office for anything (picking up & submitting forms, early dismissal [they ask for & digitally check I.D.], questions, etc.). I gave mostly 'Strongly Agree' ratings based on my & my student's personal experience & observation. Only clicked 'Agree' with effectively bullying question because I did not seeing bullying so don't know the effectiveness of policy. They do have anti-bullying postings everywhere and even had a 'Stand For The Silent' speaker presentation this year. I've left very impressed and have had positive experiences every time I've attended an event or school function. Haven't been to a LSC meeting so again cannot comment there. Personally, the PTSA is doing a stellar job! They have provided for classroom upgrades and supplies for school programs via several fundraising efforts. Kudos to them =)! If the 3 remaining years are like this (especially better) my teen will stay to graduate from this up and coming Selective Enrollment School.
