Dear City Newbies, Please Pick Up Your Dog Poop!

Some guy today let his dog poop on the sidewalk and casually walked away like it was nothing. The owner of the house he pooped in front of came out and talked to him and he not only refused to pick it up, he then treated this man who has lived in Bucktown forever like he was a crazy person.

Some guy today let his dog poop on the sidewalk and casually walked away like it was nothing. The owner of the house he pooped in front of came out and talked to him and he not only refused to pick it up, he then treated this man who has lived in Bucktown forever like he was a crazy person. I happened upon this scene and it was quite amazing. He really thought it was unnecessary to pick up after his dog.

He's 30ish, short blondish brown hair with a new small black puppy. He;s got a wild eyed stare that looks like he might have moved here from some podunk town in East Texas. I'd post a pic but that probably would be against the rules here plus I don't carry a phone with me. I'm amazed at the arrogance thinking it's OK to let dog poop sit on the sidewalk. This might work in his farm country but don't they teach any manners there? End of rant. Still kind of pissed. This happened on Shakespeare just west of Hoyne.

BTW: If there was a Patrol Dogs Club that poop and all others would get picked up by the next dog walker.

    I meant they would have fined the guy who didn't pick up his dog's poop. Brandon Bear said that the poop guy was who called 911.

    I happened upon the scene. I casually know the owner of the house because I walk by it twice a day. The guy with the dog was dialling 911 and I have no idea why. The home owner flagged me down. I picked up the poop because it took 2 seconds. I think most dog walkers around here pick up errant turds because I don't see many. I'm not going to waste police on this guy and ranting here was enough.

    It was the dog walker's righteous attitude and lack of respect for his elders is what disturbed me the most. A bunch of years ago I played tour guide to some out of towners in the Spring right after the snow melted. I brought them to the Gold Cost by the Cardinal's house to walk that neighborhood. There was so much dog poop from tiny dogs you could not walk on the sidewalk or anywhere without stepping in some. Picking up dog poop is beneath the people who live in those expensive mansions so they didn't. I suspect this is why that guy laughed at me and perhaps why he was calling the police. This old man with an accent and I are beneath him on the social ladder -- or what he perceives that ladder to be. /end of rant #2

diamond(?) ring found

Found a diamond ring (my guess is it's fake - but it's possible it's not) on Hirsch and Oakley. If you can describe it, it's yours.

  • M

    What a decent thing to do. Thank you for being a good neighbor. I hope the owner gets to reunite with what is probably a very important item.

  • Hi Danit - I know you posted this quite some time ago but I was wondering if the ring you found is a round center stone with a halo of smaller diamonds around it and down the sides?

    Thank you!
    Katie

  • Hi there - someone contacted my husband about the ring last year. Hope you find your ring!

Good morning. Just a public service announcement for the neighborhood. I started my car (mid-2000s Lexus SUV) that was parked on the 2600 of West Medill on Thursday (11/30) morning. I heard a large rumble when starting and checked underneath car to see that the catalytic converter was cut out. My neighbor was nice enough to share the video from his security camera that shows 2 people exiting a 4-door car (Infiniti?) with a moonroof at 4:38am. I know that they cut them out quick, but it looks like it might have been done beforehand and then picked up as they were at the car for less than 10 seconds. When I filed the police report, the officer said there had been several others reported in last few days. With the rising prices for the precious metals inside them, it sounds like there might be more to come.

Here is a DNAinfo on the topic from a few months ago.
https://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20170925/lincoln-park/catalytic-converter-thefts-stolen

    Catalytic Converters Stolen From Lincoln Park Cars
    CHICAGO - Thieves are stealing catalytic converters from cars in Lincoln Park, police said. The thieves cut off the catalytic converters and are apparently targeting Lexus and Honda cars, according to a Chicago Police community alert. The thefts occurred: * Between the evening of Aug. 7 and early morning of Aug.
    https://www.dnainfo.com
  • Sal, hopefully we're both good from here on in with the aftermarket converters. Knock on wood, it's been 3 years now since my theft and still parking on the street with no second thefts. Good luck to both of us and everyone else. Wish the justice system would throw the book at these guys when caught instead of slapping them on the wrists!

  • It's illegal to sell them here, but not in Indiana. What we need is a federal law to make it illegal to sell them anywhere unless they're attached to a car.

I was listening to the Chicago Police Department scanner and heard reports related to an aggravated vehicular hijacking at 2212 West Lyndale at 12:25PM on Friday, December 1, 2017.

The offenders were three black males, two armed with handguns, who pulled up to the hijacked vehicle in a Silver 2014 Chevy Equinox. The Equinox used in this carjacking was reported to have been also previously carjacked in Broadview, Illinois by two black males who were reported to be armed and dangerous.

From the City of Chicago crime map, I was able to find reports of two carjackings in this part of Bucktown over the last 12 months:

I have attached a map of all vehicular hijackings in and near Bucktown in the last 12 months. To get more details about these incidents, and other crimes in the area, you can search the City of Chicago crime map at:

    The crimeisdown.com website has separate, online streams of scanner broadcasts from all 13 CPD zones.

    https://crimeisdown.com/audio

    Broadcastify only offers the general CPD stream, which scans traffic in the 13 zones and often does not capture important dispatches in specific zones. Broadcastify will also often play recordings from earlier dispatches even while indicating that the scanner is live and current.

    Bucktown is in District 14 which is in Zone 3. If you listen to the Zone 3 stream on crimeisdown.com, you will hear all the dispatches and police officer replies as they are occurring.

    I will often have the scanner playing in the background as I work and I am now used to listening to three or four zones simultaneously. Even though dispatches are almost constant and there is overlap in dispatches from the zones, it is possible to monitor large areas of the city in this way.

    CPD and the City of Chicago only release information about crimes and post details on their crime maps 7 days after each incident. Many other major cities post information within 24 hours.

    If someone is not learning about Chicago crime incidents through scanner broadcasts, there can be criminals targeting specific areas for repeat robberies and burglaries within a 7 day period and people will be vulnerable and unaware in those areas. I have noticed that robberies especially can suddenly become a problem in a neighborhood or block that was otherwise safe for months previously.

    I will continue to post details of major incidents that suggest that there is an active, ongoing threat with suspects at large. The CPD is doing a great job of catching some robbers and robberies and assaults are sometimes related to criminal activity such as drug dealing. I am not posting those incidents because they do not create a heightened danger for most citizens.

Chicago rapper Ill Legit has a ball with local producer Awdazcate on Bad Fight

Sat 12/9, 10 PM, Subterranean, 2011 W. North, $8

    Chicago rapper Ill Legit has a ball with local producer Awdazcate on Bad Fight
    Rapper-producer Ill Legit belongs to a class of locals who are more seasoned than most rappers grabbing headlines and who are underground by choice. They've got an affection for samples that impart a sense of history into their music, and for retro sounds and beats that have the kind of heft weightlifters aspire to handle.

    Peoole should get lighter sentences for surrendering. Be a good incentive to catch more criminals

  • i'm sure it is taken into consideration by the judge but by no means should not be a given. Most that surrender are doing so because they expect to be caught. I doubt if the images of this guy didn't exist he would still turn himself in

  • The lightest sentence comes from not committing a crime in the first place and that's not enough of a deterrent, so.... no.
