Brown Ford blocking space on Lawndale

Good morning, everyone, it's 6:13am. Today is the last day of March. Tomorrow will be April 1st, which means that warmer weather will finally come (in the next few weeks). It also means that tomorrow is April Fool's Day. I'm not really looking forward to that because factored with near 55 degree temps and sunny skies, I think crime may increase.

Stabbing last night near Koz Park?

I've got word of a stabbing that supposedly occurred last night near Koz Park. According to my source, supposedly 100 people were fighting and someone was stabbed. Anybody know if this is true? If it is, I'm asking for details.

UPDATE, at 3:42pm - I apologize for giving everyone the wrong info. I misunderstood my source. This was a gang fight, not a stabbing. It did involve 100 people, however. In fact, at one point, Beat car 2546 told officers to watch the area. I'm also told that there were alot of calls of battery in progresses last night in that area.

My observations on school

Hey, everyone, school has been good this week.

March 23: On Monday, things were calm. Just the usual loudness and arguments.

March 24: On Tuesday, things were a bit crazy. I witnessed a fight as I walked into the door this morning and several arguments through the day.

March 25: On Wednesday, my class and I went on a field trip to the North Park Village Center, where we planted flowers and dug up some ground. We also dug up ground for the owners so they could plant flowers. It was pretty good.

March 26: On Thursday, things were calm. There were only a couple of arguments and no fights. Just the usual.

- Thanks,

Shooting on Diversey late last night and more shots fired today

Good afternoon. I've gotten word that there was a shooting on Diversey near Koz Park last night (must've been after midnight). This was said over the police radio as information for a "Shots fired" call that came out around 12:26pm this afternoon at 3854 W Diversey. That job was coded out 19Paul because police talked to several people who said they saw or heard nothing. There was only one call on the job and it was an anoymous caller.

About 10 minutes ago, police were also saying something about a disturbance at Koz Park. While I don't have the radio with me right now, I will be asking my mom every few minutes if there's anything happening around here. If there's another shooting today, I'll start mointoring all day.

Does anybody have anything about last night's alleged shooting? Please email me if you do.

2:22pm - Multiple units are flying down the 2800 block of N Ridgeway. I find out it's a robbery. It's coded out, however, because there is no call back and nobody's flagging the 5-0 (police) down.

2:23pm - Gang disturbance. Springifeld and Belden. Gangbangers loitering.

Update at 3:39pm - The shooting that the police said that happened did in fact happen. It occurred at around 5:45 this morning on the 2700 block of N Harding. A male was wounded during the shooting as well. He was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center. He was wounded in the shoulder but was in good condition and excepted to recover. There is no information surrounding the circumstances of the shooting. http://www.suntimes.com/news/24-7/1490034,w-logan-square-park-shooting-032209.article.

What a bunch of bulls--t this is. A shooting at 5:45am in the morning?! What has this neighborhood come to?? This is really f-ing bull! And it sounds like the person shot is an innocent bystander!

Like I've said before, we need more patrols in the area of Koz Park. And not just sitting in your squad cars, officers. FOOT patrols, please. Instead of patroling Milwaukee, patrol Koz Park. I never see any police officers or even a squad car at the park when I go by there. If the POD cameras actually really worked, I'd be asking for one at Schubert/Avers, Schubert/Springfield, Schubert/Harding, Diversey/Harding and Diversey/Springfield. Maybe there should be one at Diversey and Pulaski as well.

I feel like emailing the Commander to tell him to put more foot patrols in the area and increased police patrol in general, but I don't know if I'll get any real results. I'm going to give it a try, though.

My observations on school

Hey, everyone, school has been pretty good this week.

March 16: On Monday, things were ok. I observed several arguments and two fights but nothing major.

March 17: Happy St Patrick's Day everyone! Anyway, I observed more arguments and heard of some fights. Other than that stuff, just the usual school day.

March 18: On Wednesday, school was good for the most part. The only thing I saw that was eventful for the most part was a fight (well, near fight) in my 2nd period class. Two boys had a heated argument over something that happened yesterday then shoves ensued before it was broken up by the teacher and two other boys. Other than that, I only observed the usual arguments and loudness.

March 19: On Thursday, my class and I went on a field trip to Harlem-Irving Plaza. It was nice. I bet some of you folks are happy, since this is our last trip on a mall, at least for the time being.

March 20: On Friday, things were calm. I didn't observe any arguements or fights. Our program was bursting with "excitement" today, but I won't get into it.

- Thanks,
Avondale/Logan Square Crime Blotter
