Chicago Police Department Case #HW337072

A man was beaten and robbed overnight by five offenders near Halsted Street and Newport Avenue. The offenders, described being black men with dread locks and dark skin, took the victim’s wallet and cell phone before fleeing southbound in the alley behind Halsted.

On June 13, another man was jumped by six black men in the same area. The offenders in that case fled after the victim fought back and regained control of his cell phone.

This morning's incident is only the latest case of individuals being attacked by an overwhelming number of offenders along the Halsted Strip.

UPDATED 4 JULY 2013: Added case number.

  1. We just moved out of Boystown because we were fed up with living in terror of going outside after dark.

  2. Snail-mail that pandering Alderman, cc the Mayor, and the CPD, that you did and why, and that they are all useless idiots whose negligence will exacerbate Chicago's budget problems by de-gentrifying the area.

  4. We tried to work with Alderman Tunney respectfully and professionally regarding our concerns. All we got were meaningless platitudes like "isolated incidents" and "life in the big city" and "troubled youths." He absolutely refused to acknowledge there is a problem or that preventive steps need to be taken.

  5. I am not from the area, but I think you are far beyond the point of treating Tunney respectfully and professionally. These features are to earned, and has proven that he has absolutely none for his constituency.

    Sun-Times on Wednesday said he shed a tear over the SCOTUS ruling. But never a word heard about him doing same for his constituents and visiting tourists that get robbed, beaten, stabbed.

    The kid gloves need to come off: present him with the numerical facts, that he works for you, not for Rahmy, you will do what you are told, when you are told, or you will resign, or you will be abused at every CAPS meeting and the media relentlessly.

  6. Tunney? Next time he's up for re-election vote him out. That's a start.

  7. BTW, terrible grammar on my part, sorry. I should have said tell him: "you will do what you are told, when you are told, or you will resign, or you will be abused".

    This matter cannot wait for the next election and he cannot be permitted to coast any longer. None of us can coast at our jobs, goof until the contract ends, or the next performance review, nor should he.

    Does Chicago have Alderman meetings ? Is there a public comment period ? If so, then ridicule him, with facts in hand, in front of his peers.

  8. Another favorite Tunney (and his staff's) response to constituents when the topic of our fear simply living in his ward is to degrade us by referring to actual crime as "perceived".
    He is vile, repulsive and only wins because he runAnother favorite Tunney (and his staff's) response to his constituents when the topic of our expressed fear simply living in his ward is to degrade us by referring to actual crime as "perceived".
    He is vile, repulsive and only wins because he runs unaposed following his appointment to the throne by outgoing Alderman Bernie Hansen.
    Also, for those who don't know, this whimpy asshole was himself a crime victim, being robbed at gun point in our hood http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2007-12-18/news/0712180019_1_armed-robbery-delivery-man
    So he can't even empathize with us despite his own brush with death.
    This is one sick cookie. A very sick, very greedy cookie.
    Personally, I'd rather vote for Michelle Bachman should she and her wife Marcus decide to make a go in Chicago's beautiful Lake View East.

  9. Sounds like what you have with Tunney is an extreme form of "narcisssism", which itself is essentially selfishness on steroids. Such a person is mentally incapable of emulating anyone else's thoughts. You cannot cure it, only make his job miserable, and go after his ego in public.

    But what has made this so obvious is his co-existence of Rahm Emanuel, likely the stupidest mayor Chicago has ever seen. Tunney offered no defense while that aloof CEO, posing as a mayor, slashed your local police force 22% despite heightened crime to send to the South Side, when he should have called in National Guard troops for their extreme situations. Rahm may have run POTUS's staff with an iron fist, but he'd be barely competent to be mayor of Skokie.

    I am a died-in-wool Democrat, but you Chicagoans are going to have to primary these characters out, and failing that, hold your nose and vote for moderate Republicans like Senator Kirk. He is no accident.

    By all means, boycott all Ann Sathers outlets. Their food is mediocre at best anyway.
