Good morning, everyone, it's 12am. I'm monitoring 17 until 5am (or least trying to) a day earlier. Just a little change in plans. Anyway, I'm on my sister's computer, because the internet on mine isn't working for some stupid reason, so I may not blog and what not as fast and as often as I usually do. I'm sorry if you email or comment, and that I can't reply fast enough. Also, I still am planning on attending the CAPS meeting for Beat 2524 tomorrow, provided the weather holds up.

Glad to hear they got one of the pieces of shit!
I say bring back police brutality for gangbangers.
Nobody likes an ass beating, that's why these losers carry guns.

I'm glad, too. Bunch of thugs.

Violet Sky Daniels said...

Yes I agree Anonymous! Those MFers Need to be taught a lesson.

Violet Sky Daniels said...

Btw Timmy my mom would love to talk to you. Can we exchange info via email? Or if you show up at the CAPS meeting I guess we can talk about that stuff. Let me know what you look like/what you will be wearing at the meeting if you are able to come.

Anonymous said...

Hey Timmy I know you're not covering 1732 (?) tonight but if ya happen to hear anything, there's 2 squads with what look like bangers on the hood. Heard mention of bullets as i walked by with my dog. Roscoe and Troy in the alley. I hope "pee wee city (MLD) isn't coming alive again...........

AvondaleLoganSquareCrimeBlotter said...

Hi Violet. Yes, we can exchange info over email. We could also talk at the CAPS meeting tomorrow, if I do indeed show up. As far as I look like, I'll tell you that over email. Because there are probably some bad guys reading this blog too, and the last thing I need is for them confronting me on the streets before/after the meeting.

Anonymous 9:53, thank you for the information. I'll listen and look out for anything in that area for the duration of the night that I'm awake. But as far as Pee Wee City coming back alive, maybe it is, unfortunately.

The person they have in custody for the shooting at harding and diversey is my neighbor, hes the one who called the police as a victim at 8:20. He told us before the police came that he got into an argument at the liquor store and the guy started shooting at him. They came and talked to him and then hand cuffed him and took him away. They came back later to look around the block for a gun and told us that people were identifying him as the shooter. He isn't a gang banger, hes a construction worker in his late 30's. He comes home from work, walks his dogs and then stays in watching tv most nights. Hes always been very nice and knows everyone on the block. None of us neighbors knows exactly what happened but its just so hard for us to believe that he is capable of something like this. Hes lived in the place here for 5 years. But like I said we don't know all the facts but I guess anything is possible. I just hope they don't have the wrong person based on hear say.

AvondaleLoganSquareCrimeBlotter said...

Lo, wow. So, basically, at 8:20, he called in as a victim, but then what happened? The cops found out he was an offender or something? This sounds really intense. But I'm glad to hear he's not a gang member. If there's more information that you get, could you let me know of it? Thanks.

Lo said...

The police were saying that eye witnesses were saying a white male with a blue shirt and a tattoo on his arm was the shooter. And my neighbor was wearing a blue shirt and has a tattoo on his arm. Hes lived here 5 years, he was the first person to come greet me when I moved here. I just don't see him going to the liquor store and shooting at people less than a block from his home. But the police made it seem to us was that all the pieces saying it was him fit so I don't know. He kept saying to the officers "If it was me why would I call the police and give them my address to come talk to me, I was the victim, I was shot at." The whole block is stunned. I guess anything is possible but I still just can't imagine it. Hopefully it all gets straightened out. I will continue to check with other neighbors and keep an eye out and I'll surely let you know of any news Timmy. Also, I really appreciate you taking the time to write this blog. Its nice to know whats going on in your neighborhood and you make that very easy for us, thank you.

Violet Sky Daniels said... is my email.
I understand about giving descriptions of yourself of your page publicly. Which is why I have no pictures of myself that is over my account. Never can be too sure. Can ya.

Anonymous said...

Can somebody please just lock up these stupid assholes? Im willing to look the other way if I see a cop beating the shit out of a gangbanger. Heck Ill cheer him on. Its time that these losers get the idea that they are not welcome or respected around here.

Believe me gangs will never disappear and the cops wont get rid off them I seen cops work with gangs in this neighborhood to. Just today I was by Diversey in between by Lawndale and Ridgeway was there for less than a hour, and it was scary was crossing the street when some car passed by and said "Cobra love nigga" then I a gang tag in Ridgeway and Diversey a Cobra one then I keep seeing these bangers up and down the block just sad to see these gangs take over a neighborhood and I think Logan will always have these problems because these gangs have been here since the 60s and keep getting stronger.

AvondaleLoganSquareCrimeBlotter said...

Lo, yeah, that's the description I got. I'd be stunned, too, if I knew him. And, no problem.

Violet, will email you in the morning and will give you a description. But, also, for your FYI, if they go around introducing theirselves at the CAPS meeting, I'll introduce myself. Or, if they ask me who I am, I'll tell them.

Anonymous, I agree, but this particular shooting looks like it wasn't gang related.

Can we change the law so that landlords can have a 24 hour police enforced eviction of gangbangers. Having these losers sleep under the expressway bridge would sure make them look stupid to potential recruits. If the gangbanger is a juvenile, evict the family. Ill bet a few parents will start behaving like parents after that.

Peewee city is indeed alive and growing once again. I was monitoring 17 on the scanner last night and a call was made for drug dealers in the 3200 block on Albany. It has become apparent in the last few weeks that once again, units have been rented to gang bangers on this block and its very obvious we're back to square 1 here until the neighbors put the pressure on. Incidentally, I never saw a car answer that call, and that house is right across the street. That doesn't help. Get back to the CAPS meetings, neighbors, or they'll own our street once again.

AvondaleLoganSquareCrimeBlotter said...

Anonymous 12:02, sounds like to me you've seen what I have seen countless times. I live in the area, and I'll be first to tell you it's scary. That's why I go to the store (my local store's on Diversey over there) and walk briskly back home. When I run errands, I try to find different ways of coming home from the east. As a last resort, I'll go down Diversey. The Cobras over there have shouted at me a lot. I lost count of how many times it's happened, so that's a lot. They've flashed their signs at me, too. I've been called that nasty "n" word, too. I understand that means "my brotha" or something like that, but even if it does, I hate being called that. I hate that word being used altogether. There's been a couple of times I used it in elementary school, and oddly enough, I'M the one who got my ass kicked. I've also seen those gang tags up there, especially on that former bar. I think Logan will always have gang problems, too, unless we stand up and fight for our neighborhood. That's what I've been doing. I want my neighborhood back.

Anonymous 12:08, if only. I really wish we could change the law to do that, but they probably wouldn't change that. I agree with your statement, though.

Pro, that doesn't sound good. Not at all. I agree with you that the neighbors need to put pressure on and go back to CAPS meetings.

For you guys talking about the Pee Wee City area, I'd just like to tell you when I was posting a flyer up at Belmont and Richmond, I saw two gangbangers walking towards where I had just finished putting three up, at the corner of Belmont/California/Elston. So they are in the area over there, and they might've seen my flyers, too.

Anonymous said...

Timmy I came upon your youtube videos including the ones taken from your front window and of yourself. Thats making it too easy for the bangers to recognize you. You should really pull those off the net.

AvondaleLoganSquareCrimeBlotter said...

Anonymous 8:52, can I ask you this: how'd you come across them? And, I'll think about making them private. Shouldn't have to, though. I live in this neighborhood and I don't think I should have to hide just because they want to be stupid.
