FIREARMS 101: Revolver

It is good to see Alderman Tunney being upfront about another neighborhood incident, although we can't quite figure out how he decides which ones to publish on his Facebook page.

Anywho, the alderman today has confirmed CWB's report from yesterday afternoon about a victim being robbed of $1,100 and reportedly shot at during a hold-up on Kenmore Avenue yesterday afternoon.

The alderman also confirms the information posted by a couple of our readers in our report's comment section: the victim and offender met via a "for sale" ad on Craigslist.

We would like to offer a helping hand in one area, though. The alderman notes that "no shell case was found." As we reported yesterday, the firearm was reported to be a revolver. Revolvers do not eject casings.

  1. LOL @ "shell casings" from a revolver. I wonder how much time was spent looking for them.

  5. Yep Tunney is worried about not getting re-elected. And if we re-elect him we are the fools. "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me

  6. As pathetic as this admission is, I am 29 and have never voted once, but I will show up to vote this guy out of office if he doesn't move to change things, and fast

  7. I don't know why everyone is looking for crime solution from the alderman. That is the police dept's job. The only thing I want on the alderman's tweets or facebook page is that he will be lobbying for more police in the next budget, especially to the north side districts where there is crime also.

  8. Be careful what you wish for. The more Tunney talks about crime, the harder it will be to attract businesses.

    Also, be very clear about what you're asking from Tunney: he has no authority over the police. Demanding that he stop the robberies is like demanding that he initiates world peace. You have to be very specific about what you want and what you want needs to be within his control.

  9. It is true that Tunney has little power to stop the crimes, but RAHM does have the power to get more police hired, and to adopt a policing strategy that enables more police to be put in our district. We want Tunney to put pressure on Rahm.

    1. Tunney is a Rahm guy. Rahm wants money spent on developer ie campaign contributor projects. And Tunney blindly follows Rahm not the citizens. He has got to go.

    Correct, Anonymous. PUBLIC pressure, not the behind closed doors conversations the alderman claims he has had. Public pressure.
