Parker On Harding, Gang Disturbances In The 'Hood

Good afternoon, everyone, it's 6:00pm. It's yet another warm and sunny late afternoon here in Chi-town. It's in the upper 70s right now. A weak cold front will be coming through, however, sometime tonight, dropping temps into the upper 40s. Tomorrow's going to get right back up into the 70s, but I don't think as warm. I'm monitoring crime this afternoon and evening for 25. I'll monitor a bit from now until about a little after 7pm, then I'll come back at 9:40 until 10:29. Here's crime for the rest of the afternoon and portions of early evening.
6:07pm - Parker. 18XX N Harding.

6:34pm - Gang disturbance. 24XX N Ridgeway. Five to six males out there, throwing up gang signs.

6:52pm - Gang disturbance. 31XX N Monticello.

6:53pm - Burglar report. 41XX W Oakdale.

7:02pm - Gang disturbance. 3633 W Fullerton.

7:09pm - An RD number is being pulled from the 6:53pm job. It's HV199189 with the event number of 16565.

7:10pm - I'm going to go until 9:40. I'll be back then.

9:40pm - I'm back.

9:42pm - Beat car 2523 is giving a disregard on a "battery in progress" call on the 2800 block of N Ridgeway. No one's out there.

10:29pm - I'm going to go until 10:55. I'll be back.

10:55pm - I'm back again.

11:50pm - Battery in progress. Parker and Kilbourn. Gangbangers fighting.

11:53pm - A slow down is being given on the 11:50pm call. The crowd's dispersing.

11:57pm - Parker. 28XX N Ridgeway.

12:00am - I'm going to go for the night. I'll be back either tomorrow or Saturday. Have a good night, everyone.

I saw two cops in bulletproof vests + 1 carrying an automatic walking around the 1800 block of Mozart last night around 8-8:30.

I didn't hear or see anything going on, though.

Any idea what that was all about?

What exactly is a "gang disturbance" anyway? Sure these bangers are worthless and sure they are standing around and making the neighborhood look bad doing WTFever it is they do (nothing good) but where's the disturbance part come in? If they are standing around isn't that loitering? If they are making a lot of noise isn't that disturbing the peace? Clearly I've never witnessed one of these disturbances and I'm happy about that.

A battery "in progress" had some time on it in a backlog. It had almost 30min! I know you love the community,timmy, but the city is outta control.
This summer we will make national news yet again for crime.

How about opening up a hunting season on gangbangers? Let the local citizenry despose of the gang thugs.

Junior, even gangbangers have rights. The ACLU made sure of that. This vigilante idea is not good. We need more social services to provide more the "urban youth". CPD needs to stop racial profiling as well. Make CPD keep track of race when making unlawful street stops.

I donno, ever drive thru the westside late at night? It's like party time all night long. They even have their baby strollers with them. Drinking, yelling and making a ruckus is all they do all night long. Now drive thru at say 9 am. Of course they don't have to go to work or get up for anything else in the morning.
P.S. I drive a beer truck so they all holler when I pull up by their corner liquor stores.

I like the idea of hunting gang bangers! Wait until the city or state gets a public gang member registry up and running!

Then we don't have to look so hard for them, we just sit outside their homes and bag one each time they walk out the door.
