  3. I agree.....Enough is enough! Most of these people that are causing problems don't even live in the area.

    1. Of course they live here - they bounce from COH to the BYC to the Crib. They have no reason to leave the neighborhood thanks to the efforts of Ald Tunney. They can even claim the BYC as their home address, apparently.

  4. The interesting part is, they feel comfortable in returning. Once you solve that problem, things will get better. Yes, good work CPD but nip-it-in-the-bud the first time.

  5. Does threatening a city employee carry a bigger penalty than a civilian ?

  6. I want to know what penalty this person is going to have to pay. Somehow, I don't feel confident they'll be put away...at all, or for very long. Can you keep us up to date on whatever you can find out, CWB. Thanks for the fabulous and time-consuming work you do for all of us. We are indebted to you.

  7. When will the citizens of Chicago understand that the police are unwilling participants in a crime version of "Catch and Release?" We catch ''em and the broken Crook County judicial system releases them to prey upon the citizenry until they commit a crime so indefensible that they have to serve time. Blame the State's Atty and the merit judges that is the laughable justice system here.
