Good morning, everyone, it's 9am. Today is going to be quiet warm with highs in the lower 40s. We'll see what that does with crime. Anyway, I have a reader who was harassed last night at Belmont and Central Park by 10 to 15 gangbangers. Not good. I'll be watching that intersection closely today, since there was about three or four calls over there last night. So, here's crime for today.
9:01am - Traffic accident. Pulaski and Palmer. Spanish speaker required.

2:28pm - Beat 2563Boy gets some sellings on the 20 sector.
2:35 to about 3:40pm - I haven't been paying attention. Sorry. I was waiting for my mom and sister outside of my house to come in with some groceries, and what happens? Well, some guy who I assume is a drug dealer, comes up to me and asks me "what the fuck you lookin' at!?!", "why you lookin' at me like you gonna do something!?", "get the fuck out of here!" and stuff like that. I explained to him I was just waiting for my mom and sister, and he keeps telling me to get out of here. I ran back into my house. I told my mom about it when she came in two minutes later. At about 3:25, we called 911 to report this. The operator forwarded us to a call back officer to do a report over the phone. We explained to that operator what happened and she said there legally wasn't anything to do a report on. So then, unhappy with that response, I call the 25th District station and ask Officer Morales on the desk to please send a cop over. She's like "you have to call 911" and I told her I did but they wouldn't send out anybody. Her response was "it must not be an emergency then!" and I said I was threatened. She told me to call 311. What good will that do? Half the time, 311 doesn't even pick up the phone! So what do I do? I called 911 and the police station and they wouldn't do anything for me. So now I'm really pissed off at both the Chicago Police Department and OEMC. Screw them, as far as I'm concerned. Why can't I ever get a cop when I need them!?!! But all of these stupid ass domestic disturbances make it through, and here I was threatened! This guy came real close to me. But now I have a question for all of you: should I go down to the police station and demand to get a report and to speak to a supervisor or the Watch Commander? Or should I just let this go? I'm scared and I'm afraid this guy may come back to kick my ass. If this happens, I'm fighting back. Why call the police? They don't do anything!
