Another premise check...

Good morning, everyone, it's 6:29am. Today, at school, it's finally a regular school schedule, although my class and I are going on a field trip to the Art Institute of Chicago. That should be nice. Anyway, the sun is finally going to be out and it's going to be nearly 15 degrees warmer than it was yesterday (it's forecasted to be 70). That might make crime increase, at least a little (but it was only in the 50s yesterday and there was ALOT going on). Here is crime before I leave this morning and for this afternoon and evening.

4:06pm - Reckless driver. Fullerton and Lowell. Female in a blue Jeta speeding westbound.

4:11pm - Person with a knife. 4412 W Montana. Husband threatened complaint with a knife. He is known to take heroin, so he may be high. His name is James.

on anyone hear the whistling last night at around 2 or 3 a.m. (albany/wellington area) followed by distant sirens? the whistling was obviously some sort of code because it was done by several people all in different "spots" on that block. does anyone know what is going on? so many distarbances in this area at or around the same time.

I sure didn't, LOL. Do you know what the whistling is about, though? Sounds like that people are whistling to maybe alert one person for something like a drug deal or a fight.

the whistling happens about 2 or 3 at night for the last week or two (a few nights) and i agree, its some sort of heads up or code. it is usually followed by some yelling that is inaudible. just strange because i had not noticed it before and have lived in the area for 8 years so it is something new.

The gang activity in this area has been really active only recently. Its probably why you've never heard it before. I have lived a half block south of Diversey for 6 years and have only heard gunfire this past year-- never before.

Keep your eyes open and if you see anyone or anything suspicious going on call 911. We need to pay attention to what is going on outside our front windows and stop this insanity.

Anonymous 7:12pm, I don't mean to be all up in your business, but you live around Albany (in that general area), right? I'm thinking this because it sounded like your comment was directed towards the other anonymous commenter.

If you're talking to me, well, it's been active on my street for the last few years (two years at least).

Nevertheless, you're right. We do need to pay attention and stop the madness.
