  2. Does that 2nd car have an out of state license plate? Don't think he'll be visiting Chicago again anytime soon, if ever...

    1. The French forgot to add Lakeview to their list of dangerous neighborhoods.

  4. I wish they would steal my car. The joke would be on them.

  5. What I think is worth noting, as has been said earlier, is that the crime focus is now continuing to expand beyond Boystown and Wrigleyville. CWB has posted several reports of activity in the Southport Corridor and areas to the west in Lakeview, and of late an increasing number in Michelle Smith's 43rd Ward in North Lincoln Park. As a resident of the southern end of the 19th Pct in Lincoln Park, I will anxiously watch how Ms. Smith responds to the extension of the issues into her bailiwick.

    anonymous. We get it. How many times are you going to post that quote? You are pissed someone perceives Lakeview as safe. But maybe direct your anger at the perpetrators of these crimes.

    1. I think it's a good reminder of how much stupid there is around.

    2. He cracks me up when he posts, along with those making satirical statements from the COH Minister of Information, Mr. Fresh out of College. Gotta call out the BS, IMO.

    3. its not how much stupid there is but how much blind adherence to the bolshevik-propaganda line of "crime is down", "world class city" etc etc.... saying it doesnt make it so and rahmmie can stamp his little feet and curse those that would bismirch his idea of running this soon to be shithole as "greatest job in the world", but it wont change the fact that there are those who are wise to the fuckery him and his ilk are engaged in, with the number growing every day, and that when there are sound bites of him speaking of public service or something for the "kids", i just completely dissolve into peels of derisive laughter.

  7. It looks like they're not just targeting Honda and other foreign cars since the one in the picture is a Chevy Cobalt. Does anyone know what the top cars are that thieves are targeting? I have a compact car like these and I want to make sure I take any precautions I can without going overboard. Thanks!

  8. Install a wheel lock on each tire including the spare. The locks replace a lug-nut (looks just like a lug-nut.) Keep the key handy in case you need to fix a flat. Only costs $15-$20 on amazon. Installation is easy. You should have these on your car no matter what you drive or where you park.
