Good afternoon, everyone, it's 3:49pm. I haven't had too good of a day, but that's over, which I'm glad about. Anyway, I am finally back with 25. I bet most of you are happy about that. I will be monitoring 25 straight through the next two weeks. We'll see how that goes. Also, as I said a couple of days ago, this will not be a busy week for me, well, not meeting-wise anyway. But it will be busy, because I had a meeting at school and my teachers, the social worker, and case manager, tell me I must work on life skills in order to succeed and function in this world. These are things like cooking, doing laundry, etc. I will be learning how to do stuff like that. But here's crime for this afternoon and evening.
3:51pm - Gang disturbance. 2700 block of N Ridgeway. Two male Hispanics, about 18-21 yrs old, with black hoodies shouting gang slogans while walking towards Schubert. They're Cobras.

7:38pm - Foot chase. Armitage and Hamlin. Someone's running south on Hamlin from an officer.
7:39pm - The officer lost sight of the offenders, but says there was a group hanging out in a restaurant at that intersection. That's where they ran from.
7:41pm - Beat 2599 is giving a slow down on the whole foot chase fiasco.
7:49pm - Suspicious person. 1945 N Ridgeway. Heavy set male got into a yellow or white SUV after running. This is likely from the foot chase.
9:32pm - I have to go. I'll be back tomorrow afternoon. Goodnight, everyone.
6:07am, 2/8/11 - I forgot to mention that I've officially reached (and I actually mean it) 1,000 posts in doing this blog!! It took nearly 3 years, but so what? I made it! Again, I would just like to thank everyone for their encouragement over the last couple of years. I really, really appreciate it. Without some of you, I don't think I could have continued this blog. Oh, and also, I guess as a reward, here's an article by Chicago News Report about a robbery that happened in Avondale late last night.
