CAPS: Meeting This Thursday At 7PM

If you weren't able to make last week's Chicago Police Department CAPS meeting for Wrigleyville and Boystown's beats 1923 and 1925, you have another chance to experience the blood boiling BS session this Thursday.

Beats 1924 and 1933, which cover the area from Addison to Diversey and Halsted to Southport/Lincoln, will meet at Illinois Masonic Medical Center, 836 W. Wellington, at 7PM.  The meeting is usually held in the Olson Auditorium. The front desk will point you in the right direction and signs should be posted.

You are welcome even if you do not live in the specified areas. Activity in these two beats has a direct impact on crime throughout our neighborhoods. 1924 and 1933 include the problem plagued Belmont Avenue corridor, including the Belmont/Sheffield intersection, and the Belmont L station.

So, pop and extra blood pressure pill and stop in. If you don't have high blood pressure, borrow a pill from someone who does. You'll need it. And, hey, if the pills don't work, one of the best emergency room teams in Chicago will be just steps away.

  2. These things really puss me off, these BS meetings, but it's at least air conditioned at IMMC.
    I'm in.
    Hopefully with a "...just one person!" Tshirt

  3. I'll try to make the meeting, but I may not be able to. If Tunney shows up (although after what happened to him at last week's CAPS meeting I suspect he won't) don't let him try to pull the same stunt from last week. If I'm not there to do it, someone else needs to cut him off mid-self congratulatory fantasy monologue. He screamed and yelled at me that I was rude and interrupting him, but I just talked right over him like he wasn't there. His plan was to run the clock out by talking for an hour and avoiding the whole issue of crime in the neighborhood, and I threw a monkey wrench into that. Don't let him get away with it, just cut him off. After I shut him up everyone began to talk. When I walked out, the police woman who ran the meeting said to me, "I'm glad he was hear and had to listen to all that first hand." He's a cowardly little weasel, and you have to let him know he's on the ropes.

    ...and if say's anything stunningly dismissive like, "You're only one person..." Do what I did: I pointed right at him and yelled, "That's goddamn disrespectful." Don't make it easy for him. He's not our friend, he's not our ally

  5. Let's call it the "One Person Campaign."

    Too bad we couldn't do some youtube videos with people who have been victimized saying, "I'm just one person," and the facts of the crime they were the victim of crawling down the screen. One after another..."I'm just one person..."

    Sir, you got a point. From now on we may as well refer to the 44th ward fellow as Tom "you are just one person" Tunney.

  7. Ask Tunney to address this entry in his wikipedia article:
    "During his campaign Tunney claimed that he would address the potential conflict of interest which would arise through his business arrangements by selling his interest in four restaurants. After being elected and sworn in, Tunney decided not to sell."

  8. SInce he owns at least 2 Ann Sathers in Boystown, his "conflict of interest" should work to the public's advantage, yet it doesn't. Irrational, but he's a sick man.

  9. The Tom Tunney Comedy Hour, Part 2 ... folks, DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN Thursday night. Let's demand answers on why crime is so scandalously high in the Belmont/Sheffield area. You're important. Be there. (Even if you're just one person!)

  10. Don't forget to write a review of Tunney's Ann Sather restaurant on Trip Advisor and mention the horrible crimes surrounding the neighborhood.
