  3. What's it gonna take Alderman Tunney (and other Alderman), Mayor Emanuel, 19th District Police Commander Voulgaris and MEDIA to finally tell the truth of what is going on in our neighborhood??? How would you feel/ what would you be doing if this was your pregnant wife/daughter/sister/aunt who was kicked in the stomach and brutally beaten? Somehow I doubt you'd turn a blind eye.
    What about the rest of us innocent people out here just trying to live our lives, work and survive? You are allowing us to be victimized on a routine basis...and almost not a peep is spoken about it. Where is your moral courage and humanity? Stand up and speak out for us even if that means bucking the status quo and business as usual in Chicago politics.
    Please. Help us! We need a lot of things...the first one being more police officers in the 19th District.

    1. Voulgaris can ask for stuff til he's blue in the face...McCarthy is not going to send anyone else there.

    2. I'm not talking about 'asking' for stuff. I'm talking about someone finally bucking the system and speaking out to the media and telling the truth. Yes, even if it's at their own expense. Maybe I'm living in a fantasy world, but there used to be a day when people did what was right and courageous...not just what was self-promoting and politically expedient.
      People (even pregnant ones) are getting beaten, robbed at gun-point and may very well soon be killed up here. Things will not get better by doing more of the same. Someone in power is going have to respond to the outcry.

    3. It's becoming more and more apparent that Tunney feels the "right" thing to do is to vote with the side that's going to win.

      Just this week, in response to a question about the e-cigarette regulations, he wrote, "I joined with 44 of my colleagues in supporting regulations on e-cigarettes." As if voting with 44 other wards' representatives means that his vote for our ward's residents was well-placed. Obviously, this is not about e-cigarettes—his reasoning is a good example, though. The problem is Tunney's 100% complete refusal to lead and represent and dare to actually vote against something the mayor wants.

      He votes the mayor's way 100% of the time. It's documented. http://www.uic.edu/depts/pols/ChicagoPolitics/City_Council_Report_April2013.pdf

      Lakeview's 32nd ward has an alderman who has no problem standing up for what he thinks is right. He votes against city budgets, pounds the table for more cops, and isn't afraid to let loose. On Reddit last week, he said he's never seen any sort of payback for doing what he does. Can we request annexation?

    4. Maybe we should ask him if he has any friends who think like he does, that live in our Ward, and would be interested in running for Alderman. There is NO QUESTION that we need to find a viable, strong candidate to run against and, God willing, defeat Tunney. We need someone who will actually listen to the residents/constituents and will actually represent us to the larger city government.

    5. There is no sugar coating it - Tunney is a spineless jellyfish. Sadly, I never considered upgrading my current status for firearms ownership, yet I will now pursue conceal and carry certification. Ridiculous.

    6. I would vote for Scot Waquespack if he runs for mayor.

  4. What time did the Lincoln Park incident occur?

    And when will Apple include a kill switch in their phone?

  5. What kind of fucking shitbag (I won't say animal; it's an offense to actual animals) kicks a pregnant woman? Disgusting. And where is the outrage from whatever "community" this lovely turd hails from? No outrage - there's no money to be gained from it.

    Tunney should be tarred & feathered. Absolutely worthless.

    1. This is not Tunney's ward---it's Michele Smiths ward.

    2. Tunney should still be tarred and feathered. There were 3 others that *were* in his ward yesterday.

  6. How come you people aren't getting angry enough to protest on the streets of Lakeview and get noticed by the media and Tunney? Why aren't you marching and protesting at police headquarters? Do you want to live in fear? Take a page out of the southside book of getting things done! Too busy? You can't even walk the streets without fear. That is prison! Gather all the leaders of the 44th ward different neighborhood associations and become one and start to fight for your neighborhood. It's only a matter of time before someone gets murdered. Do you want that victim to be someone you know? Organize and get noticed!

    1. Amen! Let's do it!!!!!!!!!!

      Who is good at organizing such a HUGE protest at police HDQ, the Mayor's office, Tunney's office, etc? I will be there every time with big signs and bells on! We need to start getting very loud OUTDOORS so the media see and report it. You're right. The South side has gotten our policemen. Granted, they also had murders and that was a huge reason not just their street walks. But we can't wait until we have murders, too, to do something. They have a lot of our cops we pay for. We need them here, too!

      And yes, the neighborhood associations need to join together to walk. Those who don't, reveal themselves as pawns of Tunney and the machine.

    2. South and West sides got our cops since Rahm refused offers of Quinn's National Guard troops so as to extend the charade that he's got it together.

      Then he can punish Tunney for not going along with the Ricketts, seeking retribution against his constituency, Governor Christie-style, and wreck the neighborhood, let values drop, so they'll be begging for redevelopment. Kill 2 birds with 1 stone.

    3. I would call on the leaders of each neighborhood association and challenge them to step up to the plate and be a leader. The goal here would be to get noticed by the media. There has to be large numbers of people from the 44th ward participating and all carrying signs that spell out the horrific crime statistics in the ward. Sitting around doing nothing has let the thugs know that you are all easy prey. Lakeview is at its tipping point, and if not stopped, will be lost forever.

    4. So who's organizing?

    5. What about trying to organize using EveryBlock, considering it just relaunched today? It seems like it might be a good tool to use for that.

  7. Tunney cappleman and Michelle smith are all aware of Emanuel's money power threats and bullying and are afraid to stand up against him.

    1. A fish rots from the head first.
      Since King Rahm hates protests/picketts near his house, then that is EXACTLY what should be done on a regular basis to irritate the little dear fascist.

  8. If the media had a shred of credibility left in doing its job, this story would be plastered in front of Prince Rahm and they wouldn't stop the questions until he gave some straight answers.

    It really takes a special form of human debris to do this to any human, let alone a pregnant woman. Hopefully the fleas of a thousand camels infests his armpits. Fucking scum of the earth lowlife trough feeders.

  9. You mean none of the media covered this horrendous story of the violence toward that pregnant woman? None?

    1. I Googled "pregnant woman kicked stomach Lincoln Park" and the only thing that popped up about it was from this truth-telling blog. How dare they not report this!! It gives me a shiver up my spine to think of how little we really knew before the CWB guys (or girls?) started up this service last Spring. THANK YOU, awesome bloggers!!

    2. Thank you, Anonymous, for taking an interest in our neighborhood. That's what our work is all about.

  10. Has anyone gone to Tunney's office and literally showed him this site?

  11. It would be nice to see the Chicago Tribune put as much effort into covering a story like this as they did with the two lesbians getting married early in Chicago and the FF governor's staff closing a bridge in New Jersey. I haven't seen a single mention of this story in the media.
