Homeless Males Sleep Under Viaduct On Fullerton, Fire On Diversey

Good afternoon, everyone, it's 1:40pm. I'm finally back with this blog after a week or two off from posting. I'm really sorry, guys, but I had mid-terms for school and I had to put doing good on those first before anything else. I am finally done with those, and don't really have any big assignments or projects coming up in school for a couple of weeks, so I plan on blogging everyday for the rest of this month. Anyway, I'm monitoring 14 this afternoon and evening. I will monitor 14 in the morning tomorrow. Well, with all of that said, here's crime for this afternoon and evening.

I thought they were going to turn the old funeral home on George into a homeless center? We need some place for them to go.

Thank you so much for reporting on 14!! Hope you are doing well and good luck in school!

Let the bums sleep it off under the Fullerton viaduct. That is their home & the police do not need to bother them. The caller should of invited them home instead of calling 911.

It seems all the garbage moved out of 14 into 25. Perhaps the police in 25 could learn something from those officers in 14? It was good to see the area come back again.

Just out of curiosity, do you blog these calls somewhere else? Where are the archives that I've seen you post about?

Keep up the good work. Hope your finals went well.
