Attempted robbery at W Augusta Blvd & N Hermitage Ave 10:58PM Nov 18

I was listening to the Chicago police scanner tonight and heard a dispatch for a robbery in progress at W Augusta and N Hermitage at 10:58PM. At 11:22 PM, another dispatch reported that this was an attempted robbery and that the offenders were 3 black teens, one approximately 5.8', navy hoody, grey pants last seen walking South Bound Augusta. Take care out there.

  • Sorry, I was trying to quickly write down the scanner report. Augusta is an East/West boulevard so the offenders must have been going south on a side street off of Augusta.

  • Great job, CPD! Now, will the judge utter the famous words that release violent offenders immediately back onto the street:

    NO PROBABLE CAUSE

    Any judge that lets violent and armed criminals back onto the street needs to be voted out of office, and/or run out of town tarred and feathered.

    If these offenders were sentenced and jailed, we would have a safer city.

    Not that it should matter why one was out at night, streets should not be run by criminals day or night, it’s not okay. I myself was simply returning from work as I have done for 15 years and 1,000’s of others do each night as well. I was sober as well, if you must know but again, that should not be the focus. We should all always be careful, day and night and support one another to make our city safer. We should put the focus on ending crime and not blaming victims, of any crime. Take care.

Hello neighbors: Something to look out for in near Damen / Thomas / Hoyne /Haddon areas of 60622: This evening while I was walking my dog, a man in a white Volkswagen sedan moved his car up to block the crosswalk I was trying to cross. He was looking straight at me and jerking off. Appalled, I turned and walked the other way. Then I get to my house not even a block away and another different man in a white Nissan sedan is doing the same thing in his car in front of my house not even 5 minutes later. Two different dudes, two different white cars within less than a block away from each other. I did not have my phone on my so I did not call the police to report either incident and I was too grossed out to go back out the car parked in front of my house to get the plate number. If you are in this zone of 60622, perhaps keep an eye out and be safe.

    Mute, according to Illinois Statutes and City Ordinance no matter what size of taser it is considered possession of a weapon. But a small pocket size taser or mace would be a misdemeanor. But I don't know any Police Officer that would charge you if you were being attacked and you used it. Mace is sold practically everywhere. You want to get the stream and not the spray. The stream does exactly that. The spray goes all over and could spray an innocent. The stream is like a water hose and goes directly at your target. There is a saying that says it is better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6. The mace sells for about $10 to $15. I don't think you are the kind of person that would be walking down the street and be subject to stop and frisk. It is better to be safe than sorry. If you were my sister I wouldn't hesitate to get her both to protect herself. Stay safe Mute

The Rickets Family Shuts Down DNA Info to Bust Union

The writers and workers at DNA Info have been trying to unionize for some time and voted to proceed with unionizing. Immediately after the vote, the ultra wealthy, multi billionaire Rickets family shut down DNA Info to bust the union and punish their employees. I will never go to Wrigley or watch a Cubs game again until the Rickets sell. (I'm a lifelong Chicagoan and Cubs fan and even go to the spring training games... but never again under Rickets ownership).

If you believe in workers rights then boycott the Rickets and all the business of their famiy...

    DNAinfo and Gothamist Are Shutting Down
    For DNAinfo and Gothamist, the staff's vote to join the Writers Guild of America East was just part of the decision to close the company. A spokesperson for DNAinfo said in a statement, "The decision by the editorial team to unionize is simply another competitive obstacle making it harder for the business to be financially successful."
