Man Down On Diversey

Good morning, everyone, it's 8am. So far, it's a sunny day out there in the upper 70s, but it is supposed to storm later, and we're supposed to get strong ones too at that. Temps will be in the upper 80s, approaching 90. Anyway, I don't have anything planned for today. I'll just be here. I'm monitoring 14 until 5:12pm, then I'm monitoring 25 for the rest of the day until 11, when I have to go to bed. I'm going back to school starting tomorrow for summer school, so I need to be up at 6am. I'm not required to go to summer school, but I'm choosing to because I don't have much to do around here in the mornings. It's only for three and a half hours anyway. Also, tomorrow, depending on the weather, I may or may not go to Beat 1434's CAPS meeting. I'm going to post a reminder about that meeting and give a brief description of the area it serves.

Good job monitoring the PR festival. Remember your neighborhood could always be worse. Austin, Harrison and Ogden districts are out of control. I heard someone was shot IN the parking lot of the Ogden police station! Criminals are no longer afraid of the police. Bring in the National Guard or Delta Force I say.

At Koz Park , I have seen everyday that I walk my dog through there , Theres always a group of at least up to ten Hispanic bum drunks drinking and smoking marijuana at the benches near Harding and Diversey. The police been there multiple times but everyday the drunks come back. Their other spot is the "big Harding building" on the side drinking. There's a liqour store across the street that provides them cheap booze. My point is yesterday I was walking my dog at Koz by Harding and Schubert and there was to young teenage females sitting on the grass studying near some bushes and I was watching a perverted Hispanic drunk lurking near the females, he started to get closer near the bushes, so I stopped to watch to see what his motive was, as I looked at him not that I was staring at him like that but he had a huge boner and grabbing hiself near where the two young females were sitting, he walked slowly getting closer until he got in front of them and tugged on his boner and looked up and seen me staring dead at him and he stopped and immediate left the girls alone and walked away drunk as hell down harding towards wrightwood. This was around 3 pm ! Just imagine how many children he was thinking about or looking at. There's a bunch of children at the park because of summer camps. Those drunks at Koz are not makin it safe. Something has to be done! Obviously the police isn't good enough. The drunks keep coming back. I'll tell ya what if I ever see a pervert do something like that again, I'm going to whoop his ass!! His penis will be damaged in the process too!! I hate perverts especially when it comes to a child's or woman's safety!

Whoa. People you need to call the cops on this. It's a crime and the drunk will be prosecuted as a sex criminal. Doing this anywhere near children in a park or a school is a major felony. Why didn't you call the police? Do not be afraid to do the right thing.

Fuck that. I will not call the police their a joke it takes them over a hour to get here. I seen this before and I deal with it with my fist and let them in the pavement floor like little bicthes like they deserve.

@John Parker I didn't called the police because I did not have a cell phone in me but the least I could was stand near the girls just in case he was gonna do something more like be aggressive or attack the girls! He seen me and he left immediately . I would've called the police but no phone sorry nothin more was done. I know I wouldn't had let him do anything more to the 2 young ladies. I know if I see the that pervert again i'll be more gladly to say something to the sick bastard. Plus I know someone who works at the field house that will do something even more. The field house should know about the sick ass drunks that sit in front of their park. That Liquor store in front of the park should be shut down to prevent stuff life that. As for the police they been called numerous times to those drunks and those drunks are there everyday at the park. So what have the police down to prevent that perverted drunk from doing what he did. I bet you it wasn't his first time acting out like that at the park because the drunks are still there as well as playing children. If I had a phone I would've called and took a picture of the pervert. But unfortunately I didn't .at least I stood by the girls for their well being until he left ! I am going to report it to the field house so they can be more alert about what happened. That stupid building on the corner of Diversey and Harding holds have of those drunks their. There's even a sex offender that lives their check the sex offender list! That landlord Benny says he does background checks but he's full of crap! There's a bunch of drunks and crackheads that live in that disgusting building!

@ Anonymous 2:34 - If you act like that you are no better than the uneducated animal that is committing the crime. You also will be required have a good income and a lawyer because you will be in arrested and required to attend a criminal court summons. Always call the police. It's ignorant to think that justice will not win out. Beating people (even criminals) into the ground has significant consequences that you may not be prepared to handle mentally or economically. All Americans have rights until convicted in a court of law. This is not Iran, Pakistan or North Korea. Criminals are judged in a court of law. We as citizens can only bring them to notice of the proper authorities.

@ Anonymous 3:18 - Please report it to the field house if you can. It needs to go on record. Chicago Park District is required by memorandum to keep files on Sex Criiminal Reports and Infractions in a park. Thank you for your help.
