Live Band On Central Park

Good morning, everyone, it's 12am. It's kind of active on the radio tonight, but that's what happens when you have a warm day. Anyway, it's going to be warm yet again. Possibly upper 80s. We'll see what happens with that. Oh, for those of you interested, Beat 2535's CAPS meeting is this Tuesday at 3647 W North at 7pm. And, our clean-up on Milwaukee Ave. is June 5. If anybody needs details, please, email me. Here is crime for this morning and afternoon.

12:00am - Loud music disturbance. 2608 N Central Park. Live band.

12:01am - Reckless driver. Belmont and Pulaski. White Chevy swerving into traffic. With that, I'm off to bed. Night, everyone :).

10:31am - A slow down is being given on Monitor. There's still a lot of yelling in the background.

11:14am - I just saw the scariest thing while coming home from running some errands. A dude in a purple tanktop came out of the store, SW corner, of Diversey and Lawndale when this white Jeep Cherokee pulls up with a guy in no shirt. These two started shouting at each other. The guy with no shirt is like "I got you, motherfucker!". Then the yelling became unintelligible. I believe the guy in the Jeep is a Cobra, because the guy in the purple was shouting "IG!". I didn't stick around for the rest of it. I ran home so I didn't get caught in any gunfire. Other people on the street started running too. I did call 911, for the record.

11:34am - Disturbance. 2618 N Hamlin. Neighbor is pouring some liqud on his property. Oh, this can be dispatched before a serious gang disturbance?? The officals at OEMC are screwed up in the head. I can't blame the dispatchers. They're just doing their job.

11:58am - Battery in progres. 2455 N Ridgeway. Group fighting on the street.

11:59am - It's a gang fight on Ridgeway. By the church. Let's see what this blows up into. Hopefully not a 10-1 like they had on Monitor.

6:24pm - Person w/ a gun. Belmont and Milwaukee. Caller came into the Shell gas station, claiming he was chased by someone with a gun.

7:03pm - I have to go eat. With that, I'm gone for the night. I'll be back tomorrow. Night, everoyone :).

Good evening, everyone, it's 6:57pm. I had a pretty good day. Got me a haircut :). Anyway, it's warm out, which may increase crime for this evening. I don't have anything else to say, so here's crime for tonight.

Dispatch defender her position by the telling the officer she just dispatched it the way it came in. At one point, the cop says "finally, you get it". Dispatch replied "call our supervisor if you have a problem with it". He told her to shut up and dispatch. Dispatch got pissed and told a supervisor over the radio to except a call from OEMC.

Man Shot In Neck Yesterday On Cortland

More gunfire in Logan Square. Not uncommon these days. It's almost a daliy thing. Anyway, a man was shot in the neck on the 2500 block of W Cortland at 3:15am yesterday morning, according to this article. The man was in the back of his friend's car, with three other people, when two guys came up to the car. The two groups got into it, some thug pulled out a gun and beginned to shoot at the vehicle. The man in the back seat was shot in the neck and was seriously injuried. His friend, the driver, drove him to St. Mary's. The vitcim was then transfered to Stroger.

Like I've been saying, we're gun happy in this neighborhood, and we're in for a real long summer.

Loiters On Pulaski

Good afternoon, everyone, it's 3:08pm. Today was a good day, I guess. I won an honor roll award at our awards assembly. And it's a nice afternoon on top of it. For the first time since Sunday, I'm actually not sweating. Anyway, I have a three day weekend coming up :). Memorial's day on Monday.

Beat 2523 Meeting Last Night (5-26-10)

Good morning, everyone. The Beat 2523 CAPS meeting is still popular. Lots of people attended, as usual.

The old issues that were talked about from last month's meeting was the one on Davlin, then there was one I brought up and there was one on Kenneth. The one on Kenneth had issues with dog fighting. Officer Flores said that the police have checked out all three of the issues.

New problems:

  • At the corner of George and Avers, as some of you know, there's been a lot of problems with gangs. There were four shootings within the last month there. They also sell drugs and loiter on the corners. We had a pretty long discussion about it, but it was well worth it, I think. This corner's been a thug corner for far too long. I don't remember too well of what all was said about it, but it was a really good discussion.
  • On Belmont, there's been problems with burglaries and lots of noises from cars.
  • At Diversey and Ridgeway, there's been two guys by the, now, closed bar (from what I'm told), flashing gang signs and stuff. This is common in the afternoons.
  • On Hamlin, there's a problem with drunks doing what they do (peeing on the ground, drinking, etc.) at an abandoned property.
Other observations:
> I am told by Officer Flores that the Mobile Strike Force unit WILL be patroling this area this summer, particulary the corner of George and Avers.
> Residents were asking the police about hot-spot corners. They were asking if possibly George and Avers could be one. The Sergeant on 2520 (Sgt. Weiglein had another Beat meeting tonight) said that our area will never get that lucky, to have one of those, because basically, we're better off then some of the other areas in our District. I'd just like to say, that's very true.
> Our area IS a gang conflict area. The boundaries are Belmont-Diversey-Pulaski-Ridgeway. That means that the patrols will increase in the area, but only a little bit.
> Alderman Reboyras (30th) was there, and he listened carefully (and I know he did, I sat next to him the entire time. Just saying for those who think otherwise) to the issues. He also participated a lot in the meeting, which impresses me. Thanks for coming out, Alderman!
> The most incidents took place in the 3000 block of North Milwaukee. The most crimes were, again, battery (19 reported incidents), theft (18 reported incidents) and motor vehicle theft (12 reported incidents). The most incidents took place on Thursdays and Fridays. Most incidents took place on the street (39 reported incidents) and in residences (11 reported incidents). The most incidents took place in the 11am, 7pm and 9pm hours.

As I do in every Beat meeting post, I extend my thanks to all for being involved in this meeting. We are making progress for sure, I think, but a lot of work still needs to be done. It's good to see all of the familiar faces and new faces. Once again, I ask for those residents who read the blog but don't come to the meetings (because they don't want to), please, come! We need all of the help we can get.

Thank you,

Two People Shot In Traffic On Schubert

Welcome to Logan Square on the hot days. We had a shooting last night in the neighborhood. It took place at 9:38pm on the 3600 block of W Schubert, according to this Chicago Breaking News article. A man and woman in their 20s were sitting in traffic when some guy came up to their car and fired shots at them. The woman, who is listed in stable condition at Illinois Masonic, was shot in the leg. The man who was shot was treated on scene for a graze wound in the leg.

Personally, I think this is the most tragic shooting out of all of the shootings that happened in Chicago last night because it was two vitcims in this incident. We've got to do something to prevent this kind of stuff from happening, or we're in for a real long summer around here. But it may be too late at this point. If it is, I will do everything in my power to update this blog as much as possible this summer to keep you posted. And it will all be done here on Blogger.

Two Males Beating On One @ Diversey and Lawndale

Good afternoon, everyone, it's 3:14pm. It's still hot out, and it looks like activity is picking up. Anyone heard about the riot or riots on Lakeshore Drive last night? What a shame. There's been activity in our neighborhood, too. There was a shooting in the 3600 block of W Schubert shortly before 10pm last night. I'll have an article about it up by 5:15. Anyway, for those of you interested, two things: 1) Tomorrow night is the CAPS meeting for Beat 2523. It's at 3160 N Milwaukee, the Copericus Center, at 7pm, and 2) our next Milwaukee Ave. clean up is June 5th from 10am-noon. Here is crime for this afternoon.

3:47pm - Battery in progress. Diversey and Lawndale. Two males, one in a black tanktop, jumping on one. A white car is somehow involved.

4:03pm - Theft. 2338 N Lawndale. A man stole a blue bike from the scene.

4:13pm - Traffic accident. 2900 block of N Hamlin. Kid hit by a car.

4:22pm - Person w/ a gun. Diversey and Avers. Over a dozen males on the corner and the one in a white t-shirt, blue jeans with a white doo-rag has a gun on him.

4:25pm - A slow down is being given on the 4:22pm job.

4:46pm - There's more to the story on the 4:22pm job. There's a pissed off 911 caller now because supposedly, the group was also fighting, and the police just drove past. The guys hid.

4:51pm - I'm going to listen to some music while I do the article on last night's shooting.

5:20pm - Unfortunaley, my computer decided to get sick and shut down on me. I finished the actual shooting article, but the shut down pervented me from adding my finishing touches to it. I'll have to do that a little later.

5:28pm - Burglar report. 2827 N Springfield.

5:51pm - Beat 2541 is doing special attention per 2599, the Watch Commander, on the 2600 block of N Lawndale.

6:04pm - I'm going to add those finishing touches now. I'll be back in about 10 minutes.
