Further investigation revealed that the incident began at the School Street address.

  1. Where are they getting all the bricks? Alot of those buildings look like the bricks are held together with spacling paste but they cant be that easy to pop out.

  2. The Liberals solution to this: Ban Bricks.

    1. Wouldn't the conservative response be: Ban gay sex, because the rising crime is the result of God's anger towards sodomy?

    2. Seriously - if you want to blame liberals for everything, I would suggest moving to a different city. You'll be happier.

    3. What I find so offensive about the Fox News crowd is that they cannot accept that liberals do hold positions of importance in the country, and rather than work on solving problems with those who think differently then they do they opt instead to throw out irrelevant commentary and sarcastic comments.

      We have issues that need to be addressed in Boystown, Wrigleyville and across the North Side. Come up with some ideas to solve them, not sarcastic bombs.

    5. And somehow Fox News gets dragged into this conversation? Have you ever watched that network? My guess is no - you are simply suffering from FNDS - Fox News Derangement Syndrome.

    6. Must be horrible to have Fox News living rent free in one's head.

    7. One of us had a head-turning moment as we walked past the new Halsted Flats development near iHop tonight. The huge photos of model rooms that fill the ground-floor windows all feature a television tuned to Geraldo Rivera on Fox News. We aren't picking sides, but that does seem like it may be out of their demo.

  4. Put this man in front of the two women last week who were hit in the head with bricks in broad daylight. Then hit him in the head with a brick. Then put him behind bars and a brick wall.

  5. A group of 20 people fighting???? Who the hell are these people? My guess is that they don't reside in our neighborhood, right? Why do they feel compelled to travel up here and use our streets as their dumping ground for bad behavior? It's simply baffling...

    1. Yes. Baffling ... and permitted and allowed. It has been going on for awhile and will continue to go on, until someone takes the problem seriously enough to stamp it out. No, we do NOT have to allow this to go on here. But we, collectively, do allow it.
