Good morning, everyone, it's 8am. Today, since it's my 3rd snow day from school (no school bus service), I'm monitoring the Near South Side community, which is just south of the Loop. Boundaries are Roosevelt to the north, Clark (18th to the Stevenson Expressway) and the Chicago River (Roosevelt to 18th) to the west, the Stevenson Expressway to the south and the lakefront to the east. Anyway, this weekend, I will be monitoring the W. Garfield Park community. Since I've got stuff to do this weekend, though, I have to break up the monitoring times. Tomorrow (Saturday), I'll be listening in from 2pm-12am, then on Sunday from 8am-2pm. I have a breakfast to go to tomorrow morning with some CAPS people, then I'm getting a haircut on Sunday. With that, here's crime in the Near South Side community on this cold day.
