LOVE WINS! Yet Another Boystown Street Brawl Caught On Video — Shuttered Businesses Give Way To Mayhem

The latest brawl broke out near Sidetrack bar and Venicci Pizza. | YouTube
"LOVE WINS."
Once the sidewalk cafe fence goes down, it’s every man for himself in the latest Boystown street brawl video to hit YouTube.

See the video HERE.

With Sidetrack bar’s signage boasting “Love Wins” in the background, the 10-person melee unfolds directly under one of Halsted Street’s rainbow pillars.

And, like another recent Boystown brawl, this new video was taken in 3300 block of North Halsted, just steps from Roscoe Street.

On a block where there used to be a great all-night diner for bar-hoppers to grab late night grub and maybe close the deal on a rendezvous, Boystown now has shuttered establishments and street fights with baton-wielding security officers.

Progress, we suppose.

  1. I will take back what I said about Walsh security. They are the only ones there...where is the the police? Every time I call the police in Lakeview to report a fight or any other energy the police takes forever to get there..if they get there at all

    1. Ask your alderman which has allowed the district yo be short over 100 police officers. Do you not read all the other great articles CWB has posted??? Keep in mind all the new Wrigley renovations and World Series has attracted more people into this part of the city, so you're probably short well over 100 police officers.

    2. Looks like the security there does not matter, they know they are just security and not police, they still fight and do whatever they want in front of them.
      Just a waste of money to even have them....

  2. I would imagine when Rham consolidated police districts and cut the police man power in half might be part of the problem.☕️๐Ÿธ

  3. Good article from last year on the Private patrols in Chicago:

    http://www.chicagomag.com/city-life/October-2016/When-Private-Security-Patrols-Public-Streets/

    If the security officer isn't an off duty officer, their ability to detain, handcuff, carry a baton or a weapon is very limited.

    All because the guard or doorman wears a yellow vest, doesn't mean they have policing powers. Yep

    1. was told by police and a caps meeting EVEN REAL POLICE WORKING OFF DUTY CAN NOT ARREST OR HANDCUFF FIGHTING CRIMINALS. All they can do is tell the criminals to wait till real police (actually assigned to the area)

    2. That's wrong, police, even off duty can make an arrrest. However when you hire non-police to be the police they have no clue on what to do, you see the real police want to get paid the going rate not what some security contractor is willing to pay.

  5. The guards are breaking up fights and not beating up folks in the process. What's not to like ?

  6. Let's bring back the 20th and 13th districts. Then eliminate some of the aldermen positions. 50 to 24. Then we re-number the wards to match the police district. E.g. 19th district is now the 19th ward. Then each alderman is in charge of THAT district/ward - 50 aldermen are not needed. Did you read that? We have FIFTY aldermen.

    I'm not saying the corruption would be gone, but it would certainly improve things.

    This or any other solution will never happen, of course. I'm dreaming. Why? Because Chicago is full of idiots. Sheeple. Or whatever you want to call the collective voting body. We aren't in power, the mayor and aldermen are. Need a visual? Look here:
