Tuesday, December 30, 2008
I pose this question to all of you out there. What the hell is going on around here? Anybody have information? Better yet, does anybody know why the gangs around here keep going at it? I'm getting real sick and tired of the gangs fighting each other, OVER STUPID STUFF. Every day. It's the same nonsense over and over again. Last night, I wrote to you all about Diversey not being safe, and I think that's more true each and everyday. This email I got really proves that.
They fight on George. They fight on Lawndale. They throw beer bottles on Diversey. They throw up gang signs on Monticello. They shoot at each other on Ridgeway. Why? Is it because of a grudge? Someone messed with a gang member's woman/man? Being in a different gang? I don't know the answers, but I would like to know some, from our alderman (who is Ariel Reboyas) and maybe even our beat cops. They might know.
I think it is really time for the police to do foot patrols in this area. It's not helping just circling around in a squad car all day. The police need to walk the beat. Walk Monticello. Walk Lawndale. Walk Diversey. Walk Barry. Walk Springfield. Walk George. These streets really need the foot patrol. It's either that, or increase your presence, please. This nonsense is getting on the residents' last nerves. We should be able to walk Diversey without being shot, mugged or beaten.
Things were getting better around here for a time, but now things are starting to deteriorate again. I've lived here all of my life so far and I've never seen things this bad.
Update, 1/13/09: It appears that an RD was pulled on this shooting. It's HP754019. Time of occurrence is 07:18 hours. No arrests have been made. It was not domestic related. It occurred on the street. The block used was 2700 N Lawndale. The UCR code used was 041Adam. The crime is "Aggravated Battery: Handgun". So it does look like the man lived through this shooting.

10:18pm - As soon as a foot chase starts out at Adams and Lavergne, it ends. The guy is in custody. The guy ran because he is an aggravated Battery offender from Beat car 1533's job.

Monday, December 29, 2008
As we got back into my house, a gang fight was starting in the alley. Lots of yelling and screaming could be heard in the alley and there were people running into the alley.
So, there you have it, Diversey Avenue is NOT safe, at night anyway. Too many people are outside causing trouble. I really wish the police would do something about this stuff. They know what blocks are problem blocks around here. Especially the 2700 block of N Monticello, 2900 block of N Ridgeway and 3900 block of W Barry.
I advise everyone to be very alert and be careful when you're walking down Diversey at night. Something could always happen. If you have any (more) questions about the incidents, how to be safe, etc., please email me. I will be more than happy to respond.

Good morning and Merry Christmas to everyone out there! It's currently 5:13am. Yeah, I know, it's early, but I couldn't wait to open my presents anymore. I also had to make my rounds (leaving comments on various sites). Well, I've owned my police scanner for offically a year today. The scanner has proved reliable to me.

December 16: On Tuesday, some stuff was happening. Arguments were flaring up all this morning and some people seemed angry. I even heard at one point about a big fight happening later in the day. That turned out to be true, I guess, because there's word that a big fight broke out shortly after noon today. Around 1pm today, I saw that ALL the lockers on the 3rd floor vandalized. They had some sort of purple line of them. Other then that stuff, school was good. We had a Christmas party in my homeroom and I enjoyed it (but it was kind of weird that it was today instead of Friday).
December 17: On Wednesday, it was very insane. From almost the minute I arrived to the minute I left, arguments were ensuing. The biggest argument broke out around 8:45am. Two boys got into a loud argument about some kid who was beat up the day before. One of them was basically screaming he couldn't trust anybody. Everybody was watching. One other kid started talking about another fight that was to happen sometime in the day regarding the situation. I don't know much about the details of it, though. After that, other arguments were breaking here and there. I wouldn't be surprised if small fights broke out from those arguments. In my classroom, there were two birthdays. One for a student and another for a teacher. The party is on Friday, I heard.
December 18: On Thursday, we had a field trip. We went to the Freedom Museum on Michigan near Wacker Drive. It was a nice field trip. We learned about freedom and even got to make our own bill of rights. After we toured the museum, we hopped back on the train to Morse and then we got off there and walked to the McDonald's at Pratt and Clark, where we ate. After that, we went back to school. I'm not too sure if I'll be able to make it school tomorrow on Friday because of the huge snow amounts and ice forecasted, but I will try my very best to head to school.
December 19: On Friday, it was a pretty out of the ordinary day. First, I didn't arrive to school until about 9:10am, because of a very late bus that didn't come for me until like 7:55 or 8:00. Second, things were so calm during school, you'd think you were at another school. I liked the calmness we had. Third, so many people were absent it wasn't funny. In my class, there were only 12 of us, out of the usual 22. In my 3rd period class (Computers), I only counted nine other people in class with me. Finally, everyone was wishing each other a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, so that was nice to see. I wished some people those two things as well. In my class, other then a few worksheets, we basically did nothing besides party and watch a movie, so that was also nice. Well, to my friends and teachers who read this at Sullivan, I wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! But for those who I don't know, well ... I'll see you January 5, 2009.
- Happy Holidays to all,
P.S. My next article on school will be on January 6, 2009.

Jose Gonzalez, of the 3600 block of West Sunnyside Avenue in Albany Park, was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 1:20 a.m. today, the medical examiner's office said.
Police weren't able to provide additional details Saturday morning but said the shooting was under investigation.
I think this is just sad how yet another shooting has happened in the neighborhood. I wonder if this shooting had anything to do with gangs? It probably did. Well, I'll get more details on it as soon as they become available.
