Good morning, everyone, it's 12:25am. It's a warm and muggy night out there. It's in the 60s right now. Today's going to be hot (for this time of year), with a high in the lower to mid 80s, with sunshine. So it'll probably be active on the radio.

As I've said, "bring back the foot man." Way too many police officers driving around in cars They're so out of touch with what happens on their beats. The only reason they need a car or use one is the travel to their lunch locations.

Dan said...

There was a hit-and-run vehicle collision at about 12:15pm at Logan and Francisco. Any word on whether they found the guy who took off? I was an eyewitness.

Anonymous said...

Dan - What did the car look like?

Dan said...

Maroon Jeep Grand Cherokee, big rims, License Plate L90 1068.

Don Marcito said...

I'm glad this blog is around. When I'm depressed it cheers me up. Timmy, thanks for all the good work you do. This isn't easy for me to come forward with, but since we are all friends I feel comfortable sharing.

When I was 16 years old, I was molested by my uncle at Sea World. I had thought I was going for a good time that day and it became a nightmare. Because of what happened to me I've battled depression for many years. Doing things like reading this blog and helping the community gives me the strength to move forward in my life. So with that said, I'd like to thank you all.

Art da fart said...

To Don. That was soo touching it brought a tear to my eye............NOT!

Chaz McGibbons said...

Timmy, that eye sore of a bike is back how do we go about getting rid of that crap in our neighborhood?

Matt Borne said...

Don Marcito - I am so sorry to hear this. I too love this blog. I routinely think check in and this blog heals me. Don I need to tell you. I too have gone through similar troubles as a young boy. My life partner and I talk about it often and it helps. If you need to talk I am here for you.

2 shots fired from a car headed southbound at kimball & armitage at 9:40p 10/8/11

Eliz said...

You and your life partner,seriously? Both of you make me nauseous.........disgusting I must say!

Mary LaNett said...

What about the homels living in the garage at 2955 N. Avers? Its right next to my house. The smell is awful and when I call the police they can't seem to do anything about it?

Anonymous said...

@Eliz WTF is wrong with having a Life-partner? Why the hell are people so damn worried about other people's lives,or who they want to be with ? It's about what you love or who you love. There's nothing wrong with it! Some life partners last longer then straight couples and live normal lives just like straight people. Eliz you make me feel disgusted and nasious to see ignorant people like you say ignorant stuff like that. grow up or open your mind a little!

Mary, I bet you are very popular at CAPS meetings. Do you have any idea what it takes to be CPD? Dealing with trash day in & day out. But you know what, I would almost rather deal with the thugs & hoodrats
than deal with people like you.

Elizabeth Harn said...

First trainers at sea world are being murdered by whales,now you have to b worried about being raped! I'm never takin my kids to sea world again...thanks don for ur touching story

Anonymous said...

@Elizabeth Harn feel you on the Seaworld thing. I was going to do an dolphin encounter when on vacation until I found out how they obtained dolphins for shows and other dolphin encounters. I watched a documentary on " The Cove " and it was sad and awful to watch. It was about Dolphins and Whales and the abuse towards them. Soo sad :(

Boycott Sea World!!!!

Mary, how are you supposed to bring back the "foot msn" if you're a thousand officers short? We don't have enough officers for aggressive foot patrols. The officers we have now have to respond from call to call, sometimes without any breaks, so how do we get them to do any foot patrol, especially if we're so short on officers? Also, about your 2955 Avers complaint, I think a bank owns that building, and unless the bank wants to sign complaints for criminal trespass, there's not a thing CPD can do about them living there.

Dan, I don't have that information, althuogh I would like to know whow that accident happened and whether there was any damage or anything. Could you tell me what happened? Thank you for that car info.

Don, no problem, and I'm sorry that happened to you. That's sad it happened. Did you ever file charges or anything like that? May you continue to help in the community, and may you keep reading this blog.

Chaz, my only suggestion would be to talk to the alderman. I really don't know what else you can do about a problem like that.

Matt, I'm sorry to hear you went through slimiar troubles Don did, so I hope that you and Don will be able to talk about your troubles to each other and hopefully heal from it. Although, if you could, please refrain from having those discussions on my comments page of my posts. This blog is about the community after all, and I'm sure there's things you two would like to talk about without all of these eyes following your conversation.

Got it, anonymous 9:48. Any further info on the incident?

Eliz, I can't say that I don't agree. It's wrong in my opinion. However, I'm not going to judge you on it and condemn you for doing it. I feel like it's that person's lifestyle, let them live that way.

Anonymous 9:07, as I told Eliz, I personally think it's wrong, but I agree with you. Hey, if they love each other, then why not?

Anonymous 10:44, I have yet to see this "Mary" person show up to any of our CAPS meetings. At least at mine, as she claims to live in this area. It would be very interesting to meet her, however. I agree with you, she, or anyone else here who isn't a cop, doesn't know what it's like. I hear the kind of calls you guys get, the foot chases, etc., but I don't walk in your shoes, so I don't know what it's actually like to be a cop. I imagine it's horrible, though, most times.

Could I ask that we please stop the Sea World conversation now? It's been going on a little too long in my opinion. And Don's story has nothing to do with how they operate, he just said his incident happened there. So please, let's stop the Sea World conversation.

As long as they don't use the word Marriage because that's a gift of God for a Man and Woman. They can continue being Life partners, broskis or whatever makes them feel better about it.
