Traffic Accident At Diversey and Ridgeway

Good afternoon, everyone, it's 12:59pm. I'm finally here. I participated in a community clean-up on Milwaukee this morning then had lunch with the attendees. It was nice, but I really wish more people would show up to these things. I really do. A lot of folks come to CAPS and complain, but can't do their part. That makes me sad and angry. Well, enough for me ranting. Time to display some crime for this afternoon and evening.

2:57pm - Traffic accident. Diversey and Ridgeway. Two cars, no injuries. I'm looking out my window and I see it. Dispatch is correct.

3:45pm - Disturbance. Milwaukee and Monticello. Four drunks throwing bottles by the construction site.

3:59pm - Beat car 2523 is doing a park check at Ken-Well.

4:02pm - Domestic disturbance. Barry and Pulaski. Girlfriend pulled a gun out on the female caller. They're arguing.

4:05pm - Gang disturbance. Armitage and Karlov. Half a dozen are representating.

4:28pm - To readers who live on Ridgeway, particulary on the 2800 block: I would like if you emailed me your email address. I'd like to discuss something over email.

4:33pm - Disturbance. 3108 N Milwaukee. Intoxicated males laying on the sidewalk and drinking.

4:35pm - Traffic accident. Belmont and Pulaski. Two cars, no injuries but property damage. Also, Beat car 2524 gets a parker on the Beat.

4:47pm - I'm looking at my poll results from the latest one. It was about gangs. From what I see, a majority of you think there's a problem at the corner of George and Avers, and at Koz and Kelyvn Parks. There's also a considerable number of voters for Wabansia and Harding, and Diversey and Albany. So, to the residents around the two parks, I encourage that you do a bit more about the activity, because I know the residents around the problems corners have been trying very hard (particulary the residents near George and Avers).

4:48pm - The 4:35pm job is coded 19Boy.

One marked unit sped down Diversey with it's lights/sirens, while 6759 came down the block. I'm not happy with the dispatcher, though.

I really appreciate the hard work you put into this blog, but I feel like I should offer some advice. Please be a little more careful about revealing where you live. You've never given exact details of course, but sometimes you mention intersections or street names nearby. This worries me because you never know if the bad guys might be paying attention out there. Just a thought - stay safe and keep up the good work !

Anonymous 10:16, hmmm ... I'm thinking something must have been happening possibly around Belmont and Kedzie-ish area. I think something was going down, too.

Anonymous 11:06, thank you for being concerned for my safety and well being. However, like you said, I never give out my exact address or details. So, even though that I say that I live around Diversey and Ridgeway, I don't think that really gives the bad guys an idea of where I can live. After all, there are a bunch of apartment buildings where I live, and they're not small. Also, some of the bad guys already read the blog, I'm quite sure. Even though they don't comment, I'm sure they're following me. But, again, thank you for looking out for me. I really appriecate it! :)

WOW Logan Square sure isnt a walk in the park. To me you could tell the difference between fireworks and gunshots and they just discard the calls. What they should still go check it out, I never lived in Logan Square and never will but sometimes I past it and you could tell its not a safe place to live at. Good thing I live somewhere else lol, but your doing a good job on your blog just started reading it today new reader, a friend of mine told me about it he told me its a action pack blog lol. Good work

Anonymous 11:45, let me start off by saying thanks for coming by to read the blog. I'm glad your friend told you about it. Nope, Logan Square surely isn't a walk in the park. But it's not a war zone either, at least compared to other areas in Chicago. It is somewhat unsafe on the streets, but since I've been my whole life, I'm not too afraid anymore to walk the streets. I shouldn't have to be. I'm involved in my CAPS meetings, and we're fighting to take our part of the neighborhood back.

About the police tonight, they didn't really blow off the calls much. They drove by, or so they say, most of the calls. The one for Diversey and Ridgeway, they came by for sure. Your friend is right, this is an action packed blog (most of the time anyway).

Thanks for dropping by. I apprieacate it.
