  1. Watching this video just made me so angry. What a cowardly POS to attack a defenseless senior citizen! Let's hope they catch him and that ASA doesn't classify this as a theft.

    1. Our Cook County ASAs are not the problem...nor are the CPD folks...judges and liberal, democratic politicians are the problem

  2. WHat a fucking POS. But the sad reality is, even if he is caught, some lame-o "judge" will let him go with a slap on the wrist.

  3. If the waste of life who beat up the old woman a while back was just arrested while out on bond, should we expect this piece of junk to walk free too, and one of us (or our parents, or our kids) will be his next victim? This legal system is a joke.

  4. Maybe if judges didn't just put these people on instant parole, this wouldn't happen. It seems like every story we read ends up being "guy arrested for violent robbery was sentenced to no time, out on parole, arrested again for violent robbery". They're all "Oh it looks like you've been in prison a dozen times and you've committed a few dozen crimes... I think a few months with parole will fix your tune". I mean do these judges have any self respect? They're basically letting violent criminals walk like they want them on the streets. It's one thing to rob someone, it's another to beat them then rob them, it's a completely new low to do that to a senior.

    1. Valid observations yet a candidate just won the dem primary for Cook County States Attorney while expressing her concern for the "over-incarceration" problem we supposedly have

    2. Exactly! Please vote against Kim Fox in November! Spread the word. If she gets in, we're doomed!

  5. We can complain about this lack of punishment till we are blue in the face like we have been for years here and elsewhere. Parole, Supervision, Probation, everything that is unfair for criminals but our politicians and judges laugh at us and the poor victims. What truly needs to happen can't be spoken on here, because it would probably be edited or be criminally charged. This is the new world we live in: WHERE CRIMINALS HAVE BECOME THE VICTIMS, AND THE VICTIMS ARE NOW THE CRIMINALS. Sorry to break it to you boys and girls, it will get worse, much much worse. We live in a city where cops are legally & forced to give a friggin' receipt to everyone criminal they stop on the street thanks to the City's relationship to the ACLU. If you don't see the insanity in this, you are the problem. When little old disabled ladies with walkers are being attacked in their elevator in the building they live in, we have hit an all time low, and it WILL get worse.

  6. The building where the attack happened is one building south of the New York, on the Pine Grove side. It has been reported on this site that criminals hide on the corner of Pine Grove and Waveland on a regular basis. I'm sure that these criminals have observed the older people going in and out of the Pine Grove building and knew the old people would be easy victims.

  7. And then they walk a few blocks west and spend their day sitting in the COH until they go to Da Crib at 8:00.

    Have any of these service agencies heard the adage "you teach a man to fish...."

    1. the lobby of COH is the breakroom for our neighborhood's criminals. Go ahead, sit back, spend a little of that money someone else worked so hard to earn, put your feet up. Get a pat on the head and a donut from one of our trained counselors who will lose their job if COH takes responsibility for anything criminal. And please come back tomorrow - without you and your messed up behavior, our donors might fund some other organization - what's bad for the neighborhood is good for COH and the crib.

  8. The crime will get worse before it gets better. With the media obsessed with police brutality and the consequent call for less aggressive policing; we are in murky waters. The city budget deficit does not help either as they will be forced to cut services.

    I see no bright spots in the immediate future.

  9. I live in the New York and there's people "hanging out" in the area just outside the convenience store all the time. I never go out that entrance without my hand on my mace. This is the city we live in today.

    1. Is that highrise west of the New York on the other side of PIne Grove a source of trouble?
      I walk by it every once in a while and was just wondering.

  10. From Tunneys evil little weekly email blast today: "As is my yearly tradition, I will be grabbing a shovel and helping clear our streets for the sweepers during the first round of street cleaning. If you see me on your block, please say hi or feel free to give me a hand!"

    OK Tommy, if I see you, I will say hi but then I will be asking pointed questions about your continual lying to your constituency!
