Good morning, everyone, it's 8am. Yep, I'm home on a Monday. It's because it's President's Day. It closes a number of places. But anyway, TOMORROW is the elections for alderman and Mayor!! Please be sure to go out and cast that vote. It's very, VERY important this time. Remember, YOU are the one who can make a good change to this city. There will be a change, but it must be assured that it's a good one. So, in correspondence to the elections, I will have a special "Election Day" post up here that will be updated as often as I can get to it. To make this as much as an informative post as possible, I need your help. I would like all of you to please give me reports on how the polls are doing. I need your Ward number, your Precinct number and a basic summary of what happened at your voting place. Also, I will only be monitoring today until 3:15pm. Here's crime for this morning and afternoon.
10:50am - Disturbance w/ a mental. 2313 N Lawndale. 17 yr old son has behavioral issues and is out of control.
11:32am - Assault in progress. 4405 W Deming. Tow truck driver being threatened in the alley.
11:47am - The 11:32am job is coded. The driver is ok.
1:12pm - Suspicious person (I guess). Central Park and Fullerton. White van going towards Medill on Central Park is picking up the aldermen campaign signs. What??
3:15pm - I'm going to go. I'll be back with the Election Day post at about 5:30am tomorrow morning, and crime tomorrow afternoon. Have a goodnight, everyone.
