Gang Members Loiter On Karlov

Good afternoon, everyone, it's 3:08pm. School was good, but tiring. But it's a really nice day outside. It's in the 60s right now, and it will be tomorrow and Wednesday, also. Then it'll get cold again for Veteran's Day (Thursday). Anyway, I've got an uneventful week until Friday. I'll just be going to school than coming home. But on Friday, I have to go to Malcolm X College for "Disability Mentoring Day" from 8am-2pm (I'll have to leave here at 7, and I won't be back before 2:45), which I guess explains to disabled people like me how to get a job and stuff like that. I'm hoping for the best from this event, though I'm sure it'll be good. Next week will be VERY busy for me, so I may not blog much at all. I'll let you all know what I'm doing next week in a few days. Here's crime for this afternoon and evening.

3:54pm - Gang disturbance. 20X9 N Karlov. 10 to 15 of them loitering.

4:03pm - I have to do my homework. I'll be back in an hour or two.

6:14pm - I'm back.

6:22pm - Gang disturbance. Milwaukee and Ridgeway. They're loitering and were chasing a car at one point.

I don't know why you call yourself disabled? You seem to write well and run your blog with no problems.

Actually its not against the law to loiter. The courts threw out the city's gang loitering charges.

There was a mugging last night on Schubert just off of Kimball. Two guys in hoods jumped a guy on a bike. I came across the scene around 7:30pm. Two cop cars there. One suspect possibly (?) caught.

Thanks, anonymous 11:48.

Anonymous 9:21, while I'm not particularly offended if they do pop each other, I just wish they wouldn't do it when people are around.

Anonymous 10:34, I know that I don't seem like it, but I'm autistic. I'm just one of those rare very high functioning kids. Writing is a strong skill for me, but there are still some things I'm still not able to do.

Anonymous 10:41, you're right, it's not against the law. However, regarding the gangbangers, if the police get enough complaints (it has to be A LOT of them, too), they can make a small area a hotspot, where they can legally tell a gangbanger move along, and if the gangbanger comes back within 8 hours of an office telling him to move along, he can be arrested. I'm trying to get my block as of these hotspot areas.

Anonymous 3:36, thanks for the info, but that's sad to hear about.

Just put up a no loitering sign and if the uneducated gangbangers who most likely function at a 2nd grade reading level are standing within 20' of it call the cops. The cops have every right to then search the losers and find out where they live. They then get logged into books as a report with names. Since the 20 something yr old gangbangers are dirt poor and don't work they most likely live with their parents. (a huge sign of laziness and life leaving them behind). Once the cops find out the place of residence the alderman can be notified and pressure can be brought down on landlords to get them out.

Well those no loitering signs dont work for shit in this neighborhood as a matter a fact they dont work for shit in the westside. They have alot of no loitering signs in blocks and they still hang deal and kill the police dont care because there getting money from the bangers well not all cops are crocked but a good handfull are. Oh and believe me the older bangers are not going to have anything on them if they get checked by the police there goin to put the heat on the shorties, and when they do get caugth all they get is a slap in a wrist, wait in he station til there parents pick them up and sign some paperwork, and when they turn 18 all there priors are forgotten.

Anonymous 8:57, that is all true, and as a matter of fact, I encourage everyone else to do that. But, however, if you want the gangbanger arrested, you HAVE to leave your name with the 911 operator and tell them you are willing to sign complaints.
