Female Gets Hit At CTA Bus Stop

Good afternoon, everyone, it's 4:08pm. School was ok. But now, it's the weekend and I'm ready just to relax after a long week :). Anyway, I received a reply from Alderman Colon a bit earlier from last night's email. He thanks me for "valuable community service" I provide for our area. He also tells me that they've had issues in that area before and are working to resolve them. Colon tells me he will contact the 14th, 17th and 25th District Commanders about the issue. I think this is very good news. I'm impressed with Colon getting back to me in such a timely matter. So, here's crime for this afternoon and evening.

Got harassed by a group of 10-15 gangster ass kids nearby the belmont/central park area this evening -- wouldn't be surprised if it was the same folks from the 5pm incident.

Colon is so full of it, Belmont & Central Park is a known hotspot for trouble in the area and nothing is EVER done.

Anonymous 1:18, I'm sorry to hear that. Are you ok? I imagine the incident was a bit scary, especially since there was ten to 15 of them.

Anonymous 1:57, I'm not completey trusting him until there is visible evidence of something being done up there. I haven't really took his words to heart. Altough, I do somewhat trust him, since he replied in less than a day to my email. But perhaps he just did that to get me off his back. I'm monitoring this situation closely.

You have no reason to trust Colon at all. He's full of it, he could care less.

All I can say is that I let one of my teachers at school know about the situation, and they're calling the bus company so the driver can document these incidents. Hopefully that'll help. I don't know what else what to do. I've let my school administration know and they seem not to have done a thing about it. I emailed Colon, he probably isn't going to do anything, especially from what all of you tell me. I emailed the 17th District Commander, he hasn't replied. What do I do? The only option I have now is getting off the bus and throwing snowballs right back at them. If I go to jail for defending the kids on my bus, so be it. It's probably about time I start taking things into my own hands about this.

Or maybe you people living over there witnessing this happen need to call the police.

There's no reason for you to get off the bus and stoop to their level, Timmy. You're already doing a great service for the community, just keep up the great work. There are a lot of Avondale/LS residents supporting you.

As for Colon, considering he's a "former" Latin King himself (and probably still connected for all we know) we can't really expect him to do anything about the situation other than pay it lip service. He's an apologist and symphathizer for these street terrorists given that he himself was one. It doesn't matter to him if they continue to harm our community because he himself was one of them so he'll always have an excuse for their behavior.

Vote him out next election.

Colon was a former Latin King? That's a shocker. Where did you hear this from (I'm just asking, I'm truly shocked by this)? No wonder why there's so much crime and disorder in the 35th Ward. Sounds like we've got an alderman who supports gangbangers. This is certainly not good whatsoever. He's going to have to get voted out come next year then in my book. We can't have aldermen who support gangs.

As I asked before, though, WHAT CAN I DO (sorry for all CAPS, but seriously)? I've let everyone and their brother know what's going on. Nothing's being done, so that's why I think I should defend the kids on my bus. They don't deserve this. What if one of them gets hurt? I don't even have a cell phone to call 911 on anymore. I can't just stand by and let this happen. I thought I was doing the right thing by telling adults what's going on. But I guess I may have to go back to my old ways and handling it myself. That's what I used to do. I really don't want to have to do that, but nobody's helping the situation. If you guys don't want me to stoop to their level, please, give me some ideas about what I can do. This has been going on for nearly two months now, just about everyday. Enough is enough.

well i think your making a big deal for something little snowball throwing relax its not going to hurt or kill anyone and if you say theres just throwing snowballs it a be over soon thers no snow so i think your being a little to dramatic theres way worser crimes out in logan that need be stopped first

Anonymous 4:02, this IS crime!! This borderlines on Assault! This involves gangbangers. And someone will get hurt if this can't be stopped. Don't you know that snowballs can BREAK WINDOWS?! What if one of the kids on my bus gets hurt, or the driver, or me?! Doesn't ANYBODY care about ANYTHING in this damn neighborhood? NO, of course not. And, FYI, this isn't in Logan Square. This is in AVONDALE. And finally, don't tell me to relax. This has been going on for the last two months. I haven't tried to get the police involved anyway until now. I first went to my school administration but they haven't stopped it. But you know what? The police don't do anything for me either. So for now on, I'm not going to mention anything about snowballs getting thrown at my bus. But if we get hurt, don't feel sorry for us. After all, it's a big deal, right?
