44th Ward Alderman Tom Tunney does not like noise when it's near his high rise condo at Lake Shore Drive and Diversey.
19th district officers were ordered to investigate a "rock concert" at Diversey Harbor around 9:30PM Saturday after the alderman called in a complaint.
The cops were given strict orders: "check their permit or shut it down" per the alderman.
Officers who arrived on-scene discovered "this is not a rock concert at all. It's some boaters. They turned the music down."
It must be nice to be a member of the elected class that gets expeditious police service for such non-criminal matters, particularly since those officers would certainly have been better used on, say, an anti-robbery mission.
Jeez, we've heard from hundreds of common citizen who've been unable to get police dispatched for burglaries and even robberies, so the alderman must "know" somebody.
