DISSED: Robbers Ignore Alderman's Shrieks of Outrage

Following two armed robberies in her Lincoln Park ward last week, Alderman Michele Smith hosted a ridiculous "police roll call" near Mildred and Wrightwood Wednesday night to "send a message" to robbery offenders.

Of course, there were no robbery offenders present, so let's stamp that message "return to sender."

One more thing about Wednesday before you go, Michele...

Less than two hours before your dog and pony "roll call," 18th district police responded to the Lincoln Park T-Mobile store at North Avenue and Clybourn, which had just been robbed of $1,300 by two offenders who fled in a blue Sebring.

Someone needs to tell those guys that Ms. Smith "will not tolerate these outrageous crimes."

  1. "Alderman's Shrieks of Outrage" --- how many other of you readers of this excellent forum thought the story would be about Little Tinney Tommey Tunney? After all, he does have an enviable track record of publicly shrieking, such as shrieking "Shut up! Shut up!" at a CAPS meeting, and shrieking "You're just one person!" at one of his tax-paying constituents, and shrieking at a city meeting that (re: Ricketts and Wrigley stuff) he would "be all up in our butts!"

    1. Give it a rest. I for one am tired of the blame game BS. Add something constructive once in a while.

    2. "Giving it a rest" is what led to our current situation.

  2. Smith's righteous indignation is FAR superior to Tunney's excuses and victim blame game.

    She is also putting pressure on CPD staffing from what I understand.

    1. Smith called the separate crimes, which both occurred on Friday, unusual for the neighborhood and insisted the neighborhood was safe under the current policing levels.

    2. Rahm got her to drink the kool-aid, along with Cappleman and Tunney.
