Video: Police Respond To Large Street Disturbance In Wake Of Pride Parade; "I ain’t comin’ back to this shit no more"

Video has emerged of Chicago police responding to a large street disturbance at Belmont and Sheffield early Monday morning in the aftermath of Sunday's Pride Parade.

The video can be seen HERE.

At least one person is seen being led away in handcuffs during the incident.

The scene didn't sit well with the lively narrator:

"What is going on? Why these girls out here fighting? This is supposed to be LGBTQ!"

"I ain’t comin’ back to this shit no more."

"Oh! They busting windows. Bitch. What is the tea?  Right in front of the police."

"These kids is out there fighting. What is going on? Right in front of the police. They don’t give no fucks."

"I swear to God, this is my last gay pride. I ain’t never coming down to this shit again."

"This is supposed to be a happy day and these kids is out there clownin’."

"This is how the LGBTQ community mother fucking celebrates gay day." 

"This don’t make no mother fucking sense. I swear to god. I will never come back down to this bullshit. EVER. I’m done."

  4. Actually, most of these people didn't attend the Pride Parade and most are straight. They pour into Lakeview later in the evening looking for trouble. Why else would they arrive after the parade has long finished and wander up and down Belmont?

  5. "I will never come back down to this bullshit. EVER. I’m done."

    My sentiments exactly; except I came to that conclusion about 20 years ago....

  6. That is NOT how the LGBT community celebrates pride. The community is either home in bed or spending money at the bars. These are just hoodlums causing trouble.

    1. I appreciated my straight, married couple friends in Lakeview. They were trapped by the parade route so invited many us over for a potluck BBQ type gathering for a few years during the parade. A great time, great people and great memories of my days in Chicago. F that Halsted shitshow.

  7. Either end it or move it downtown. And they won't let media on the parade right trying to cover up the truth of what happens.

    1. Location is not exactly the problem...it's the predators that gather and circle. Even if you do, many folks will continue the festivities in boys town afterward. Again, predators will circle like sharks.

      I only worked pride as a cop once but I loved it. The people were so nice for the most part and shocked the hell out of me. I'm usually negative about the job and people in the city but that was actually a nice relief. As the day went on, the flood of miscreants began to unleash their mayhem and we had to "be the police." My mentality is it's a celebration, let people celebrate responsibly even with breaking minor laws like public drinking and smoking. However, we had to break up an attack in a multi-unit courtyard in which a group of predators attacked residents celebrating in their own courtyard. An exterior window was shattered, multiple battery victims and the attackers cried racism and victim. We had to restrain the highly emotional attackers by cuffing them to the iron gates but released because the victims didn't want to press charges and went inside.

      As we were returned to our unit far from boys town, I recall multiple shots fired and persons shot over the radio. So again, it's not location, it's the large, festive and peaceful crowd the predators exploit for their love of chaos. It's just modern society where the predators are given carte Blanche and police are painted as heavy-handed heathens.

    1. They're all "just homeless transient youth" but they always seem to jump on that Red Line heading south.......home.

  9. Here's a solution - come for the parade, then leave afterwards for somewhere that's less crowded. The belmont redline stop and halsted all seem like complete shitshows after dark, so avoid them unless you want to witness or contribute to a shitshow. Now you can have a good pride day, and there's one less person contributing to that mob scene.

    1. I see what you're saying and it's a probably true. However, think of how sad that is. Limit a fun gathering for criminals.

  10. Once again, stuff you won't see the "mainstream" journalists report.

  11. Wow, you've to be kidding me. Did word go out on FB to the West & South sides to come on down to Belmont Ave?

  12. Cribchatter.com featured a condo listing right at that corner (I believe right above the Walgreens) and most thought this was a great, true Chicago "starter" home for the price. They hadn't a clue of my comment.

  13. Can't take that "narration". Worse than the idiots causing trouble.

  14. That video is terrifying. That's Sheffield and Belmont.

    Just spitballing, but maybe close the Belmont redline stop early, or only allow people to depart and not arrive via the Belmont redline stop at some point during the evening/night?

    Close down the bars (or close down the bars much earlier)?

    Make it a dry neighborhood?

    At some point, the people in this neighborhood have to stand up for themselves. Other than a few exceptions, it's clearly not their neighbors causing this trouble, but people coming to this neighborhood for reasons that are not helpful to the neighborhood or community. It needs to be a less desirable neighborhood to visit for bad people or people only interested in causing trouble.

    I know there is a lot of dissatisfaction with Tunney on this site. Since I don't live in this neighborhood, however, I don't necessarily have an opinion on him. But I can't see anything even remotely close to the garbage in the video happening in any other neighborhood in this area of the northside.

    From the outside looking in, this is utterly shameful.

  15. Cubs fans are worse.

  16. Genius!
    Well done Ms Nairobi.
    It is shit. Avoid it like the plague.
    The neighborhood agrees.

  17. Obviously none of these people are here for pride. They are just taking over. At least Nairobi sees it for what it really is. Need to shut down the redline Belmont stop on pride night at 10p and reopen at 6a lol

  18. I've got news for you, momma - you bore and raised "this shit".

  19. Just found this website--thank you it's great. I've lived in the Boystown & Wrigleyville area for over 20 years. The troublemakers in the video were not in the neighborhood for gay pride. They were there to cause trouble--because they get away with it. Tunny is USELESS and must go!!! This isn't happening on his street so, "who cares!" Interesting how none of this made the local news. FACT is, crime in Tunny's ward is up 50-60% from last year--depending upon who you talk to. Tunny says it's up 50%, so he's telling everyone to lock their doors. Gee, thanks. Either the corrupt Chicago politicians want this type of chaos so that they can pit one group against another, or they are the most useless morons around. Either way, the people of Chicago need to stand up and vote them all out--and support term limits. Maybe then the Tunny's of this city will wake up and start working for the people.
