Child Left Alone On Barry

Good afternoon, everyone, it's 2:52pm. I'm home a little early, because our school was let out at 1:55 due to the high winds. This weather has been crazy today. First with the storms, then of course the wind. Anyway, tomorrow, I'm probably only going to be here in the morning, due to 2523's CAPS meeting tomorrow evening at Copernicus Center (3160 N. Milwaukee) at 7pm. I ask ALL Beat 2523 residents to come to this meeting, unless you've got work or are busy. This is the absolute last monthly meeting. Our next meeting will be in early December after this one. I ask you all to come because this is the last time for a long time you will be able to meet with CPD for months. So, here's crime for this afternoon and evening.

5:00pm - Child left alone. 4139 W Barry. 7 yr old girl riding her bike out front, and she's alone.

5:34 to 5:46pm - I fell asleep. I'm sorry.

5:50 to 6:16pm - Fell asleep, again. Sorry.

6:43pm - I have to go eat. I'll be back.

6:57pm - I'm back.

7:49pm - Gang disturbance. Ridgeway and Altgeld. There are reportedly 50 gangbangers on the street, throwing bottles and what not.

7:53pm - I'm going to finish up a little homework I've got to do. I may be back, but who knows. If not, good night and see you all in the morning.

My school is only three or four blocks off the lake, and with the waves getting kind of high, plus the winds being a bit stronger since we're further up north and near the lake, they let the kids in my program go home early since we're on school buses. They decided to do that early this morning, and since they didn't know the winds were not going to as bad as they were supposed to be, they just let us out. Besides, we were let out only 20 minutes earlier.

There have been a LOT of gang fights lately between Fullerton-Diversey/Central Park-Pulaski. Many of them during early to mid-evening hours. What is CPD doing about this ? As for myself, I am dialing 911 and will continue to do so. Thanks for your help, Timmy.

Thanks for what you do. I'm a big fan!

Anonymous 1:01, probably the only thing they're doing right now is responding to the calls that are made. If calls kept being made, and someone talks to the officers about it, maybe they'll do some more patrolling or something. And, no problem.

You're welcome, Mike!

It's too bad The Gaylords left the area around Ridgeway and Altgeld. They kept the area safe from those spainish gangs.

One bit of advice about these gang calls: Don't always call as anonymous! You have to meet the police when they show up! Talk to them, sign complaints! Without YOU, they cannot make a case unless the get lucky enough to make a stop on the reported parties and find reason to detain for investigation (Investigative Alerts, etc), Warrants, and whatever else.
