Traffic Accident On Fullerton

Good morning, everyone, it's 12am. It's currently a bit cloudy with temps in the 60s. Sure beats the crazy storms we had yesterday evening. Today is going to be a real scorcher, for sure. It's going to be in the mid to upper 90s, and with the humidity and dew points, it's gonna feel like it's 100 or 105 degrees outside. So I'm staying in for just about the entire day. If I do have to go outside at all, I'll make sure I'm back in the house by 10am. Anyway, it's the 1st of July, and I think we all know what that means. It's the Fourth of July weekend. Lots of fireworks will be going off in the area. I'll have more on my coverage plan for this holiday weekend in the next day or two. With that, here's crime for today.

Please get out and offer help to our homeless in the area. Bring them cold water, perhaps allow them to sit in your air-conditioned hme for a while. It's supposed to be about 100 today.

Jenny P., why don't you get out put a sign in front of your house and that way all the homeless in your area can go in and sit in your home. Don't forget the drinks.

You know Chicago offers cooling centers throughout for hot summer days.

I'm sorry, but I'm done feeling sorry for the homeless drunks around my neighborhood. They act like animals...pissing, shitting, digging threw the garbage / leaving a huge mess, the list goes on & on. I'll piss in a bottle and give it to them after what they do around my home! Diversey ave & Central ave is a dive thanks to them & our shitty alderman.

Talk about censorship. Anything even remotely negative towards the police is not posted. Do you really think life is like cops and robbers? Criminals are bad and police are good right? Guess what, there is a lot of grey everything is not black and white or good and bad. I just have to remember that you are still in high school. I do admire your blog & the job you are doing though.

Jenny, sorry, but I have to agree with anonymous 11:45 and 6:03. They're right. Why should we do these things for the homeless if all they want to do is drink?

americanlt, I think it's time I be blunt with you. Why don't you go find another blog to post your dumb comments on? For real. I don't even know what the hell you're talking about. I let people post negative comments about cops, but they can't be downright insulting. Just like comments can't just praise cops left and right. I truly believe that half the CPD consists of good cops, but we ALL know there are bad apples within the CPD. Believe me, we know it. I'll say this, though. If you didn't have a comment that didn't make it through, it had to be racist or it had insults that weren't called for. You know, I think you're bi-polar. One minute you're all happy when you make a comment, then you make comments like this. Go away, troll. I don't want you here anymore.

Jenny P. - you go ahead and do that and the majority of those drunk homeless people with take advantage of you until they day they die. You house will be destroyed. Good luck.

The residents of 2523's beat are responsible for the problem of the drunken homeless on their beat. They give them money, and various other handouts.

Bobbo and americanlt are trolls. Stop posting their dumb comments already.

Anonymous 3:56, I can agree to that, but to a point. The only people that give them money that live on the Beat are their Polish friends. There's probably a few other clueless citizens who do, too, but this is mostly what I've seen.

BBE, I think I get the point.
