Reckless Driver On George

Good afternoon, everyone, it's 3:09pm. Today was a good day for the opening ceremony of Special Olympics. My class had lots of fun. Speaking of which, I have a question for anyone who may know: what channel or channels is Special Olympics going to be on? Anyway, it's real warm out. Upper 70s. 'Nuff said, so here's crime for this afternoon and early evening.

3:11pm - Reckless driver. 3600 block of W George. Male driver in a red Ford seems out of it. Heading towards Lawndale.

3:35pm - EMS run. Milwaukee and Avers. Male bleeding on the sidewalk.

3:41pm - Assist the citizen. Pulaski and Wrightwood.

4:37pm - Criminal trespass in progress. 2941 N Avers. Three people went into a vacant building.

5:09pm - Suspicious person. George and Avers. Four to five people sitting in a car on the SW corner.

5:58pm - EMS run. 3037 N Davlin. 6 yr old has a high fever. He's bleeding from the mouth and nose.

6:20pm - EMS run. Shakespeare and Central Park. Male down in the street.

6:41pm - I have to go eat. I'll be back.

7:00pm - I'm back :).

7:07pm - Liquor license needs to be checked at the bar, 2918 N Pulaski.

7:28pm - Assault in progress. 2800 block of N Kenneth. Four gangbangers chasing a guy on a bike towards George.

7:32pm - Gang disturbance. Kelvyn Park. Dozen of them hanging out.

7:41 to 7:46pm - I accidentally turned the radio off. Sorry :(.

7:50pm - I forgot to mention two things earlier. One, there was a shooting at George and Avers at 11am yesterday, with over a dozen gunshots fired. Nothing really was found. Two, I'm not sure if I ever told any of you this. This is about my future employment thoughts. In the next couple of years, I'd like to get a job at the 911 center, being a police dispatcher. It sounds like a challenging but fun job. I would give my teeth for the job.

7:54pm - Battery in progress. Hamlin and Altgeld. Group of men breaking out car windows with baseball bats and they're also fighting.

8:01pm - I have to go. I'll be back tomorrow afternoon. Good night, everyone.

ONCE AGAIN!!! I come home down my alley between Milwaukee and Central Park and a group of bums are drinking, breaking glass, and smoking crack behind my garage at the T alley intersection.

Goddamn IRYs...
I called the cops.
The next question, what do I do to keep these shitheads away from my property???
This is getting old.

I'm glad you called the cops. I'm sorry this keeps happening to you. Anyway, what I'm about to suggest may not be the best thing, but I think maybe that you should put some kind of light in the alley. Like a night light sort of thing. It'll keep your garage area lighted up and hopefully will discourage the drunks from hanging out over there. That's all about I can suggest, though.

I like your job aspirations, and I think you have the heart for it. But don't give your teeth ~ how will you take a bite out of crime then :) Cudos, Tim, you can do anything you set your mind to.

I think you'd be great as a 911 dispatcher! You're very dedicated and have a passion for helping people. You would be perfect and they would be lucky to have you.

Thanks, ProdigalOne and ally. Both of your words mean a lot to me. I do have a passion to help people, which is why I think this is a good job for me. I can save people's lives in an emergency.

I'm the guy with the BUM problem.
There is a light in the corner of the alley.
Besides this was in broad daylight.
So to finish the story...

The cops did end up coming and dispersed the crowd.
The mexican guy with the shopping cart full bags just walked 100meters down the alley and found a chair to pass out on. The other guys walked further down to dig through trash and piss all over the garages down the alley.

I'm sure when I arrive home again, they will be back tomorrow in some other corner. I guess I might have to just keep calling the cops on them to let them know that they are not welcome.

I did although mention to the INCREDIBLY nice 911 dispatcher about IRYs liquor store. If you get a chance to mention this at the next beat meeting please do. I would go and mention it myself but I am scheduled to work during the next one.

Thanks for your blog as I've subscribed it via Google Reader.
Keep up the great work.

Hey Timmy,
Finally got around to joining. I think you're doing a fantastic job informing your community of what's what's going on around them. I wish there were more men like you throughout the city performing the service you are.

AvondaleLoganSquareCrimeBlotter said...

Oh, ok. I didn't know you guys already had a light. Sorry. Anyway, I'm sure they'll be back out there tomorrow, too. In this neighborhood, for the most part, you can chase them off, but they most likely will come back. And, yes, calling the cops is exactly the thing you should do. They're here to protect and serve. Keep calling them until they get annoyed and move the guys out of the alley.

Regarding the beat meeting, Iry's is on 1412's Beat. I'm on 2523's Beat. So, maybe, someone who goes to 1412's Beat meeting can mention it to them there. I will also mention it at my Beat meeting, but there's not too much the cops can do because it's a different district.

That sounds like the perfect job for you! I for one would feel even safer with you as a dispatcher! :)

Perfect job for you Tim - you're very analytical and practical and detail oriented and would be very very good at that job. You would have a LOT of recommendations if you went into that kind of work!

AvondaleLoganSquareCrimeBlotter said...

Thank you, anonymous 11:38 :). That comment means a lot to me.

Thank you too to onthewing. That'd be really nice of people to give me recommendations.

Do you know anything about a male being arrested this past weekend (either 5/8 or 5/9) around the insection of Milwaukee and California? Any info is appreciated. Thanks.

AvondaleLoganSquareCrimeBlotter said...

Anonymous 11:46, I don't know anything about an arrest from that location this weekend. It had to happen yesterday (May 9th) because I was listening to the 14th District on Saturday (May 8th). I searched my entire post from that day to find anything and I didn't come across anything. Sorry.
