Good afternoon, everyone, it's 4:31pm. Around 3:59pm this afternoon, I witnessed three gang members all in black fur coats yelling gang slogans when one grabbed a beer bottle and chucked it towards the bar at the corner of Diversey and Ridgeway. I know who exactly who threw that beer bottle. His name is Micheal Camarena. I know him from Monroe school last year.

What do you think is going to happen? Are you concerned about gang problems in the neighborhood escalating?

What I think is going to happen, ECB, is that there's going to an incident and it's going to be bad. I've already seen gang members outside looking rather mad and a fight (this was on the way home from school)involving two male teens, so something may escalate soon. I'm keeping an eye out though.
