Good afternoon, everyone, it's 1:14pm. It's a sunny afternoon with temps in the mid to upper 40s, which I'm personally happy about. I've been waiting a couple of months for it to feel like this outside. It's going to remain clear all through this evening, with temps dropping into the 30s. Anyway, I bet you're all wondering why I'm home early on a school day. Well, my mother had to go up to the school for a meeting (no, I didn't do anything bad) and just decided to get me out early, since there's no point in her leaving and then having to wait for me to come back home. Besides, it's making up for the time I have to spend tomorrow at school. I have to stay after school for a Student Government meeting. Also, I'm attending the CAPS Beat meeting for 1432/1433 this evening. That'll be interesting to be at. On that note, here's crime for this afternoon and portions of this evening.
2:47pm - Child abuse. 3651 W Schubert. At the Monroe school. The school social worker wants to talk to CPD regarding a 14 year old being abused at home.
3:00pm to 3:30pm - I fell asleep. I'm sorry. I'll try to get an archive of this time period.
3:37pm - Gang disturbance. Belmont and Lawndale. Six of them out there.
3:45pm - Some call in the area.
3:54pm - Burglary in progress. 27XX N Harding. Car with a plate of TARGO has occupants who are breaking into a building.
4:02pm - A slow down is being given on the 3:54pm job.
4:03pm - I'm going to go until 4:55. I'll be back then.
4:55pm - I'm back for the time being.
5:08pm - Battery in progress. Lawndale and Altgeld. Gangbangers fighting. Oh boy...
5:52pm - We've got a bit of a situation unfolding at the Hay Academy (a elementary school) at 1018 N Laramie. The school is currently on lockdown because of shots being fired right near the school, and CPS will NOT let the students out of the school until CPD arrives to talk to the principal. Listening closely to this...
5:55pm - Beat car 1524 is at the Hay school now, and they talked to the principal. They're letting the kids out now. 1524 will remain on scene for a while. Back to regular coverage.
6:12pm - I'm going to go. I'll be back either later or tomorrow. See you all.
