Gang Disturbance On Wabansia

Good evening, everyone, it's 7:39pm. It's another cloudy and rainy evening in Chi-town, as you all can see.

I have an event I need to attend right after school and that's not over until 8pm. I won't be home until about 8:45 and I'll be probably too tired to really do anything.

Gang Disturbance @ Belmont/Ridgeway, Parker On Davlin

Good afternoon, everyone, it's 2:04pm. It's a hot afternoon. It's currently around 90 degress, and will get into the mid 90s before the day is over. Not really usual for early September. Speaking of which, September has begun, which means a lot of things, at least for this blog and myself. One, I will not be doing the all day, everyday blogging I did (or at least tried to) over the summer, until next summer, provided we're still here. The reasons why I cut down are because I will be heading back to school for my last year in less than a week, therefore I'll be busy, and there's not as much crime and disorder in the fall months as there is during the summer. I realize gang activity really does pick up in certain spots of the neighborhood while the seasons are changing, and will monitor those areas, but most days aren't as bad as the summers are usually. This also means I'll be cutting down on monitoring 14. That's reduced to once a month, again. This also means I'll be going back to my weird weekend schedule, where I monitor on Saturdays after my dinner (for the most part) and before my dinner on Sundays. Oh, and one more note for everyone, but I'll be taking Sunday, Monday and Tuesday off from blogging. I want to enjoy the remainder of my last weekend off from school, and on Tuesday, I'm going to a Cubs game with my dad after school :). So with that, here's crime for this afternoon and evening.

2:36pm - Gang disturbance. Belmont and Ridgeway.
