CHOIRBOYS: Local Arrestees Call Boystown Church "Home"

Huh. It looks like one of or local churches is becoming a popular place for neighborhood arrestees to call home.

Haymond
At least two men recently arrested in Boystown told cops that they “live” at Lakeview Lutheran Church, 835 West Addison. The church is home to “The Crib” youth shelter.

But these guys surely aren’t living in a youth shelter, right? They’re over 30 years old.

Police arrested Deonca Haymond late last month after he allegedly battered a Boystown 7-Eleven employee and stole from the store. While he told police that he was 27 at the time of his arrest, court records show that he was born in 1984—making him 32-years-old.

Haymond has an impressive arrest record, mostly for retail theft, under a variety of aliases, according to court records. The 7-Eleven case resulted in him serving 17 days of jail time in exchange for a guilty plea.

Slaughter
Then there’s the case of 34-year-old Terrence Slaughter, arrested for allegedly stealing vodka from the Jewel-Osco store at 3561 North Broadway last week.

Slaughter also listed 835 West Addison as his home address.

He’s so old, he actually went to prison for the first time 16 years ago—right around the time that most people we’d consider youths were being born. So, he surely isn’t crashing at the youth shelter.

His 2000 and 2001 convictions for narcotics earned Slaughter four-year prison terms, according to court records.

In addition to hosting The Crib, Lakeview Lutheran Church operates “Lakeview Employment Group. ” LEG hires people experiencing “homelessness, chronic unemployment, criminal backgrounds, or youth (18-24)”  to be parking attendants during Cubs games, to maintain public planters, and to work at the group’s resale shop.

Participants are paid $10 an hour and receive CTA passes, according to the group’s website.

  1. I've pleaded for years for the Lake View Lutheran church to tackle the criminal element stemming from its shelter. Replies I receive from them include everything from I'm in an irrational racist to the belief that white Americans deserve to live in fear. The irony of course is evident. Please write to the radical political organization masquerading as a church and insist that they are no longer wanted in the community: http://www.lakeviewlutheran.com/

    1. The replies you received reminds me very much of an article I read just yesterday. It was written by a woman who worked at Streetwork in NYC. It sounds like Streetwork is very much like COH. If you want to get an idea of the culture and mindset of the people who work at COH, The Night Ministry, The Crib, etc., read the article- it will leave your jaw on the floor. Oh, and, yes Streetwork protects and hides its criminal clients, too. Search for: The Wages of Idealism by Tracy Abel.

  2. I think it's time for Lakeview Lutheran Church to take a hard look at what they are REALLY doing -- which is becoming a branch office of the Center on Halsted. As for the 34-year old Slaughter, wow, what a defiant look in that mugshot. It's as if he's saying, "Nah, man, no problem, I'll be released in a few days."

    Let's also think about this: Haymond battered a store worker and stole from the same store, but was released after just SEVENTEEN FUCKING DAYS?? Who approved this? How did this happen??? No wonder the neighborhood has become prime picking grounds for these thugs.

    1. And with the high rent and high taxes residents pay to live there should be an uproar in the community but there wont be. See you here next week for more of the same. Nothing changes. Nothing.

    1. Fr. Mike Pfleger is the only Catholic priest doing what they're all supposed to be doing. Their may be others but what he does should be emulated by all.

    2. Phather Faker is a fake & hypocritical asshole.

    3. Father Pfleger is a self-loathing jerk who accomplishes nothing by trying to portray the criminals as victims.

    4. Is this a joke? Fr. Faker needs to be emulated?! Are you high? He refused papal orders to step down, is a race baiter, he makes excuses for violent offenders and is a complete nut. I've arrested multiple convicted felon offenders who were "turning their lives around" and working in some capacity for your venerable holy man, before the bad police (me) arrested them for UUW by felon or armed habitual criminal.

  4. They also "live" in the back of the Magnet school on Waveland, just a stone's through from the police station

  5. Look at that cocky Slaughter. You have nothing to be cocky about punk. You have been a loser your entire life and will either die early or die incarcerated.

    1. one flaw in your logic: dude doesn't think about tomorrow. "Get money today and do me hard all day" is the mindset.

  6. HOLY HELL. Haymond is sitting in Peets Coffee, Halsted-Cornelia, right now, 9:22am 9/27. Just sitting there taking up space, not buying products, and Peets management and employees are allowing it. Amazing. Let's ALL make these thugs feel welcome in our neighborhood!!! Let's ALL open our homes. Let's follow the example set by Peet's!!

    1. Unacceptable. I would contact corporate about that.

    2. I'll bet by 1:00pm he went right next door, filled up a Big Gulp cup with frozen yogurt and walked right out.

    3. I see that happen all too often. Likewise downtown on Michigan Ave I often see a lot of people bothering customers sitting on the patio while the staff does nothing about it. A few weeks ago I was at Panes on Sheffield on a Saturday and one of the local "youths" came in hitting up people for money. They promptly kicked him out. I wish more business would stand up to this behavior.

    4. I would stop patronizing Peet's Coffee and tell their corporate office why.

      I would also never attend services at any church who caters to criminals and also tell them why. But as another poster said, they don't give a shit what their neighbors think, as long as the tax dollars keep rolling in for all these "under-privileged youth."

  7. Thank you CWB for posting this information because when the crib or other shelters show up at caps meetings they claim they never bed down criminals and when I try and meet with them they say they cannot check the criminals ID that would be discrimination. Is it not discrimination to our law abiding high tax paying unsuspecting citizens that the crib and other shelters are being down to our neighborhood DANGEROUS VIOLENT CAREER CRIMINALS

    1. You have to understand the New Left's mindset: These are not criminals, but social justice warriors. This is the EXACT SAME thinking that led to the Bolshevik Revolution.

    2. "Cannot check the criminals' IDs??"
      ....Ummm....they're running a private business. Not for profit. But a business no different from a hotel.
      You can check IDs, run backgrounds, refuse to allow alcohol / whatever. Hell, you can potentially run an all male or all female outfit. All legitimate.
      You cannot refuse admission on the basis of race or creed. And even creed might be defensible, depending on how the operation is funded. That's it.
      'Can't check IDs' is BS.
      ''We choose not to check IDs' is the truth.

  8. Hmmm, I saw that Deonca character on N. Halsted near Addison this morning. Just a matter of time before he appears on these pages once again, I'm sure, after the 17-days slap on the wrist, courtesy of the wonderful judicial "system" around here. Sigh ......

  9. The Crib lets them out at 9AM, so they hang around until the Center on Halsted opens and then they go there. Liala, the "pastor" of that church is a liar and an opportunist, and has no interest in being a good neighbor. The Crib will never go away- too much of a money maker and probably the only thing keeping that church alive other than parking for the Cubs games.

  10. Regarding that location of Peet's Coffee .... they used to have a morning manager who didn't put up with the shit of these Crib, et al, people coming in and sleeping and hanging out not buying products. She dispatched them immediately. Now she's been promoted to another store. The morning staff just tee-hers and oohs and aahs and gives out water and coffee and leftover pastries while the thugs take up space, use inappropriate language in public, and cast menacing looks at customers. Do not leave your cell or computer or belongings unattended in this store ... they WILL walk off. A shame, a real shame. They're losing customers because nobody working there has any backbone or testicles. I even watched a paying customer get up and tell a thug to leave the other day. The staff stood there and giggled like a bunch of ninnies. But this is ok, because Tunney, Rahm, and others want these thugs to take advantage of "social services" in the neighborhood, and it makes them look good. Giving away free crap from Peet's is part of their program, I guess. Fuck Tunney, fuck Rahm, fuck Luckman, fuck the CoH, and now fuck Peet's mismanagement for allowing this crap.

    1. Haymond is definitely hanging at Peets this week. Fuck this!!!!! Why should he get free stuff from the limp-toast Peet's workers when I have to pay their overinflated prices for a worn-our stale cinnamon roll and ass-tasting coffee??!? This is so wrong on so many different levels!

    2. Two hilarious comments but sad because true.

  11. Until the government money train ends and the social justice warriors are silenced, we will have more and more of these thugs running our neighborhoods, and soon to come to an upscale suburb near you.

  12. The youth shelter used to be a men's shelter a few years back and maybe that's why they have the address listed.... It's not like they can update there ID without an address and to prove they live there

    1. what do you mean it's not what happened here? i was going to post almost what 6:24 did to set CWB straight. Your increasingly strident attitude has been pretty off-putting the past 6 months, maybe you switched editors?
      when arrest reports give an address it's what's on someone's ID-period.

      Delete
    2. Because it is not what happened here. Both men have previous arrests listing other residences. The 835 Addison address is new for both of them. So, it is not a matter of them having an old ID. Good enough?

      Delete
  13. Bereal....when we arrest someone and we ask them for their address it's to find their actual address, not what's on their IDs. The more addresses you get will aid in future investigations of the person ends up on a wanted list.

    I know I had a little tiff about public peace violations and how I don't do proactive policing anymore. I said petty stuff like drinking on the public way tickets is something I'd never do but believe in the broken windows theory of policing. I started writing those petty tickets after the ACLU and fetal effect. Anyways, one guy the other day popped ok a homicide warrant that I stopped for DOPW. Just goes to show that little stops can lead to something, despite people saying "you don't have anything better to do."

    Lastly, friend said he was on a stop in 019, which he just started working. A lawyer approached after the stop and said he was recording the officers, questioned their RS/PC for stopping their arrestees and said he was going to their court date.

    There's a reason we're at where we're at in this city and country.
