  1. You have the Center on Halsted. We have Thresholds.

    1. I was wondering what these abundance of "physical therapy" places actually do. There can't be that many slip and fall/car accident victims and people with bursitis in Chicago. Thanks.

  2. Instead of sending these criminals to jail, perhaps we can send them to Iraq and Afghanistan.

    1. While that sounds like a great idea off the bat, on second thought I can just imagine them fighting with their own side. These guys need to go to prison for a very long time. Don't they know it's illegal to stab someone? Does the State's Attorneys office know this or will they downgrade this to a misdemeanor? I hope the judge won't give probation but a serious sentence.

    2. As a military veteran, I can speak for myself and many other veterans by saying the military does not need nor want the type of low-life sewage trash to defend our nation who are committing crimes in Chicago.

    3. It will be rebranded a "misdemeanor misplacing of a sharp object", or perhaps the person stabbed will be charged with a newly-imagined charge of "misdemeanor not-getting-out-of-the-way-of-a-sharp-object. It is, of course, the victim's fault for not running away fast enough. I kid, but that's what it's coming down to, because, you know, we're all fucked.

    4. Didn't you ever watch the movie "The Dirty Dozen"?

    5. None of these miscreants would remotely qualify for any branch of the military service...

  3. Unfortunately this probably will be downgraded. They know stabbing someone is illegal and blantantly wrong, but they also know there won't be any real repercussions. They'll be back on the streets in no time.

  4. This can't be good for business. Parents in the area must be thinking it's not safe for their kids in Chicago anymore.

    1. If I had kids there is no way I'd stay in the city. In fact, I'm not sure how much longer my guy and I will stay. I can't believe I'm actually typing this, but the shit that keeps happening around here is getting worse and worse. I hate what has happened to our city. It's like they have given the criminals a free pass to do anything they want. We tax payers are their victims and our ever-increasing taxes offer zero police protection. :(
