Good morning, everyone, it's 12am. It's a cold night out there with temps only in the upper 40s, and this is for early June. Not usual. Today's going to be pretty rainy with temps in the lower 60s. It's going to warm up this weekend, though. Anyway, today begins June, and that begins my summer edition of monitoring crime in our neighborhood. Starting now, June 1st, until September 1st, as I do every year, I will attempt to log crimes everyday, all day during the summer, as this three month period tends to be the most active in our neighborhood, and in Chicago in general. But it is certainly not guaranteed, especially for this month and the month of August. This month, I am making final preparations for my high school graduation (which is next Friday, by the way), and then I have to make several visits to Wright College for various reasons before I start classes there in mid August. And tonight's a big night for me. I'll be going to my high school prom this evening. But back to the subject at hand, a couple of things will be changing on this blog. For one, every year during the summer, I used to monitor 14 twice a month, but that will no longer be the case. I will now be doing this for 17, as there's been a big uptick in violence in 17 the last few months, and I've seen somewhat of a decrease in 14. But 14 will still have once a month monitoring as always. And two, this is for all of you commenters, especially the trolls. I will no longer be publishing just anyone's comments beginning now. In order for your comments to go through, they must be about the neighborhood and must not be disrespecting other commenters and calling them names. And I certainly will not publish anymore troll comments. We're all adults here, so we can act like it. Sorry for this long entry to the post, just had to explain some things. With that, here's crime for this morning, until 6:15am.
12:24am - Burglar alarm. 21XX N Karlov.
1:19am - Disturbance. 3919 W Fullerton. At the hotel. Neighbor causing problems in one of the apartments.
2:30am to 3:20am - I fell asleep. I'll try to get an archive of this time period.
6:15am - I'm going to go, and with that, I'll see you all on Sunday. Have a great start to the weekend, folks!
