Theft @ Wrightwood and Lowell

Good afternoon, everyone, it's 3:10pm. School was good, but yes, tiring. We went on a field trip part of the day to a fire station at Peterson and Clark, to learn more about the service CFD provides to the city of Chicago. I learned a few new things, but I already knew a lot of what they do. The thing that impressed me the most about today's trip was that the station we went to had two calls while we were there. I was told that most stations in Chicago handle 8 to 10 calls a day, while others handle 12 to 14 calls. There's even some (like Engine 91 at Diversey and Pulaski, it seems) that get 15 or more calls a day. Anyway, tomorrow, I'll be here most of the day (except for maybe when I have to go grocery shopping with mom). Here's crime for this afternoon and evening.

3:11pm - 1) Theft. Wrightwood and Lowell. 2) Some call on the 4300 block of W Schubert.

3:29pm - I'm going to take a nap. I'll be back a little later.

4:27pm - I'm back.

4:30pm - Person w/ a gun. 2230 N Keystone.

5:00pm - Beat 1510 needs help at 736 N Menard. More units are needed to help break up a large fight. Sounds like it may be a 10-1. All available units are asked to go.

5:01pm - Person w/ a gun. North and Central Park. In the alley behind Speedway, there's about four men with guns. This is on 14's side.

5:03pm - A slow down is being given on the 5pm assist call.

5:32pm - Zone 12 is experiencing technical difficulties. The Zone went out for a minute, and although they're back up, the mobile is off (meaning people with scanners can't hear the officers responding to Dispatch) and they're on back-up radios.

6:09pm - Fire. 2031 N Keeler.

6:11pm - Multiple calls coming in on the 6:09pm job. 2522 is being dispatched over there as well, in addition to 2521 already being dispatched over.

6:14pm - The fire is bona fide. Traffic control is being done. 2520 is notified of the fire.

6:15pm - There's a report of four people trapped on the 2nd floor in the burning building on Keeler.

6:38pm - Ok, here's what I got from the fire at 2031 on Keeler. There are 9 displacements from the building that was on fire. A warming bus is being sent and the Red Cross is being notified. A police report is going to be done (I'm thinking it might be an arson). The RD number is HS609170. Everyone seems to be ok. The Chicago Fire Department is investigating.

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

6:54pm - I'm back.

6:59pm - Person w/ a gun. 20X9 N Karlov. Man in the alley with a black hoodie on with a gun. Running towards Keystone.

12:00am - I'm going to go. I'll be back tomorrow. Have a good night, everyone.

The gang problemis the residents problem. They allow the gangbangers to hang there. Perhaps area residents should go out in force to drive the gangbangers out? Also you've got to know that most of those gangbangers are your own kids. So what aer you, the parents of these kids doing about it?

What does "a slow down" mean?

But most of fire's calls are for medical runs, not fires anymore. You don't have the fires like you did say, 25 years ago. How many times has fire had to come out for those pissbums? Why not end this sanctuary city nonsense. Start deporting these illegal alien pissbums?
