Halloween 2009

Good afternoon, everyone, it's 2:00pm. Happy Halloween for those of you who celebrate it (I don't). I, probably along with many others, are hoping for a calm Halloween, but it probably won't be that way, so I encourage all readers to send in reports throughout the day and night to me from wherever you are in the two neighborhoods, especially if you are east of Central Park and north of Belmont.

Do you happen to know if there were shots fired near Altgeld and Ridgeway this morning around 5:00? I swear I heard some, but I was half asleep.

I wouldn't know that, since I'm no longer allowed to listen to archives of the scanner (I would've gone back to check). I can ask around, though.

I can confirm that there were between 8 and 12 shots fired just south of Altgeld on Ridgeway shortly after 5am.

Hey Timmy-

Thanks for all the updates tonite (you say you don't celebrate halloween, but looks like you're goin late, to me).

Sure seemed like a lot of craziness, gunshots, etc., around the square itself, disappointing to hear it was even worse out to the west. (Don't know if you saw but Trib picked up on that shooting you mentioned).

Happy halloween-- hope you enjoy it, even if it comes with some bad news over the scanner.

Hello odc. I don't celebrate Halloween as in wearing costumes and stuff like that. I'm staying up late because it's the weekend :), and I'd like to hear what is going on this late Halloween night.

Sorry to hear about the Square being crazy. And yes, it's been kind of crazy over here tonight, but it can be much worse. It's way more crazier as you head further south and west. I didn't know that the Tribune picked up the story until now but I know now :).

Thanks for wishing me a happy Halloween. I hope you had a good one too.

Anonymous #1 here - thanks for checking up on that for me. I noticed some graffiti on a building on the NE corner of Altgeld/Ridgeway yesterday as well, but I don't know if it is connected to the gunfire from the morning.

has anyone been arrested for anything around here. It seems that the only thing the police are doing is writing parking tickets. Ive never see the police show up when I called about gangbangers. does anyone know where they live or hang out?

Anonymous 9:40, I've seen a couple of arrests. Unfortunely, in today's climate and with a boss like Jody Weiss, the only real thing the police CAN do is write parking tickets. They have to have a good reason for arrests now. People, especially gangbangers, can't be arrested or fine for loitering on corners and stuff like that because the ACLU says "it violates their rights".

As for police not responding to your calls of gangbangers, I guess that is because of, unless you give your name and are willing to sign complaints, they don't have a good reason for rolling up on a gangbanger, who can sue CPD for doing that.
