WEEKEND RECAP: 2 Robbed, 2 Tazed

Can't beat that for a great weekend, huh? Here's a recap of what went down while we soaked up the sun:
• Two robberies were reported in the immediate area. Police arrested the offender who robbed a 7-Eleven and one of its customers Saturday night in the 1100 block of Belmont. But the two men who robbed a victim early Saturday morning in the Southport area managed to get away.
• On the burglary scene, a Wrigleyville resident was awakened at 2:30AM Saturday by two ski mask-wearing burglars who were in his living room. Earlier in the week, a man arrested during an attempted burglary in the area two months ago pleaded guilty to 3 break-ins and received a 9-year prison sentence.
• Two men who refused to comply with police in separate incidents this weekend wound up on the wrong end of Tasers

  1. Great News: THE CHURCH AT BROADWAY AND ADDISON IS SEEKING TO GREATLY EXPAND THE SOCIAL SERVICES AVAILABLE TO THEIR NON-TAXPAYING "CLIENTS" TO THE DETRIMENT OF THE NEARBY TAXPAYERS WHOSE $$ MAKES SUCH THINGS POSSIBLE. WHY DOESN'T THE CHURCH RENDER UNTO CAESAR WHAT IS CAESAR'S INSTEAD OF HAVING THE TAXPAYERS SUBSIDIZE THE HOTEL AND CATERING BUSINESS THEY ARE RUNNING FOR A PROFIT? READ MORE ABOUT IT AT LAKEVIEW DNA.

    1. They will effectively cease to function as a church. Let's be honest here...they've smelled the money pouring into these other organizations, and they want their share. Is there absolutely nothing that the area residents can do to block this sort of thing?

      So just wait until we have The Center, the Crib, the CHA apartment building with ties to the Center and this place greatly expanded...and within a couple blocks area.

  3. Have Tunney and Capelmam signed onto the City Council resolution calling for hearings on the reliability of CPD crime stats mentioned in Chicago magazine?

    1. We asked Tunney's office about that on May 1st. He replied that he had set a "goal" of signing one, but he had not been "asked" or "invited" to sign it at that point in time.

    2. I think Tom has had enough. Tom will run the fuck out of here like the smart ones are. Leave it for the bar owners, the college slum lords, the scared shop keepers and the ones who can not afford to leave here to stay and watch the demise.
