  1. I'll map it and I don't need a computer program: Halsted strip; Clark St strip, Belmont Strip between Halsted & Clark up to Irving. That's where the thugs come. That's where the crime is.

    2. On the map, it looks like there are more red dots around the Clark/Broadway/Diversey intersection than there are on the Halsted strip.

    3. It depends on which crime map you select.

    4. No red dots in Graceland cemetery. I guess the dead do not have cell phones and cash. These thugs are smarter then I thought.

    5. Graceland has better security than the rest of Lakeview.

    6. Oh I am very sure they do. Graceland has been there for ever and it has been blessed with grace. Time to write a hero zombie movie.

  2. Can you remind me again of the difference between theft v robbery and assault v battery?
    Is it robbery includes force/weapon, while theft does not? assault is verbal threat, while battery includes physical harm?

    1. You got it. We recently added a basic definitions page linked at the top and in the home menu

    2. You do not need any reminding. Aces.

  3. I've always found it peculiar that Chicago residents were generally very well versed on the definitions.
