Crime Blotter For June 24, 2011

Good afternoon, everyone, it's 12:54pm. It's a pretty cold and cloudy day outside, which can be somewhat good if you consider it. Crime will be down a bit today. But it's supposed to warm back up starting tomorrow. Anyway, I plan on monitoring 17 tomorrow for most of the day (if not all). We'll see. Also, there is a community clean-up on Milwaukee tomorrow afternoon beginning at 3pm. We'll be meeting at Lorca Elementary. I'm not sure if I'll be there or not. We'll see about that. With that, here's crime for this afternoon and evening.

1:04pm - Some call in the area.

1:31pm - Open door. 40XX W Nelson. Thanks to ProdigalOne for obtaining this call for me.

1:38pm - Robbery. Fullerton/Karlov. Chain snatching, strong-arm. Male Black, with braids in black t-shirt and pants, ran southbound. Thanks to ProdigalOne for obtaining this call for me.

1:42pm - The 1:31pm job is a bona fide burglary. 2 black males seen driving older vehicle with front-end damage, dark in color possibly gray or blue leaving scene. Thanks to ProdigalOne for obtaining this call for me.

1:53pm - Disturbance. 41XX W Barry. Men throwing and breaking bottles in alley. ProdigalOne for obtaining this call for me.

2:25pm - Sex offense. Milwaukee/Central Park. Middle-aged male, gray hair and beard, sitting at bus stop with no pants on. Thanks to ProdigalOne for obtaining this call for me.

3:45pm - Disturbance. Koz Park. Guy dressed up in a clown suit disturbing the peace.

6:32pm - The Critical Mass (about 1,000 or so bike riders) is heading towards 25 as we speak. They're at Grand and Kingsbury at the moment, in 18, but they'll be in 14 within a couple of minutes and in 25 soon.

6:37pm - Shots Fired. Hamlin and McLean.

6:39pm - A slow down is being given at McLean and Hamlin. Beat car 2525 is on scene and says no one looks alarmed.

6:59pm - Wanted in connection of a robbery that occurred in the alley behind Walgreens at 1627 on Pulaski about ten minutes ago is a male White, 16 yrs old, black mask, red shirt and black pants. He robbed someone of a pink mountain bike, and I'm thinking he robbed it from the boys who were beated up in the 1700 block of Springfield.

7:04pm - Assault. 40XX W Wellington. Caller was apparently threatened by the neighbor, but aruptly hung up on the call-taker.

Crime is down. The new police boss says all must give up their guns. Guns, the tool of the despot....

Went to Taste of Chicago & was amazed at the police presence.
There was even a CPD helicopter flying around. I didn't even see many "urban youths" with their baggy pants & XXXL white T-shirts! Maybe we won't need our Armed Forces to fight crime in Chicago this summer?

I question myself how do we take care of this violence, gangbangers ? Yeah we can put more police on the street to scare these punks but they end up running back to their " hoods" and messing that neighborhood up! Yeah the police could lock them up. The gangbangers end up back in the street. Gangbangers are like roaches " they don't die, they multiply " the jails are over-crowded with gangbangers and other criminals. Then taxpaying people suffer because of them. So how do we take care of these chaotic streets? Maybe make more jails out of the city like in a desert? I hope they don't not lighten up that gun-law that's all we need is everyone shootin eachother up! Why don't they send these gun toting gangbangers to Afganistan? Train them to be soldiers if they want to fight like that here in our streets. If they have bootcamp for felons, why don't they have them do bootcamp and learn a career? We can't exterminate gangbangers ! But humans are trainable !

Uh, for your info, lots of the gangbangers are combat vets. The drug business pays quite well.

@uh anonymous 6:37 you sound like an ignorant idiot! No $hit it's becauses of drugs too but that's not the only reason why either! There's territorial issues too. Do you got a answer for the drug problem, in how to take care of it or a sensible opinion at least? The pride these gangbangers hold is another problem. Think before you speak "uh" okay! There's still not a conclusion is there?

Military pays more than the drug business any way! You get benefits and careers, choices for a better life , what the phuck does a "drug business offer" yeah lots of money but with no benefits but a cap in your ass or sent to jail! Easy money but you always got to look behind your back and your so called gangbanger friends never got your back when your butt gets locked up! So I hope the gangbangers oneday know that their a bunch of idiots that make stupid choices because their lazy as hell to do good and have a functional life!
