  1. Is there an arrest a day at the COH?...I. think anywhere that crime-ridden should be shut down immediately for the safety of all. Just a matter of time before someone is killed in there...

  2. Um no I don't think there is an arrest a day -- however there are about 30 or 40 crimes committed over the weekend from thefts to credit card fraud to domestic disputes to public intoxication. Perhaps we should just shut down every place of business where something happens nearby. What an ignorant comment.

Why don't you stop in th lobby tonight with you Iphone and get back to me.....or are you busy with all the "classes and work studies" going on upstairs...Please....I will take a picture every single day and post them so everyone can see the constant police presence because I LIVE NEXT DOOR..get it?...and we are SICK OF THE SHITHOLE....

  4. The COH is a staging area/ground zero for the hoodlums; this is common sense.

  5. Do they still have "artist exhibits" there? Or was that just a cover too?

    1. This is the third night since this post that paddy wagons have been in front of the Cesspool On Halsted...I am guessing their current "cover" is gang headquarters...

  7. Everyone on the board at the COH should be required to own real estate within a block of the Center so they can get a "true feel" for the safe neighborhood that they have destroyed. Get up close and personal 24/7...easier to hire security to push them down the street than deal with a real issue, isn't it?...and let me guess??..Andersonville??..lol...yep

  8. FYI ~~ I think Chicago PD is an excellent show, filmed here, shown Wed, 9PM, NBC Channel 5.

    Tonight's episode deals with gangs and cellphone thefts. Folks, punks steal them, get some $$ for them from a gang, who the police said then sells them overseas for triple what they sell for here. They showed piles of them being sorted by their worker bees and packaged for shipping. Rival gang wars and murder were also in the script.

    Who's to say what's fiction anymore?
