19th District Craziness

The 19 th district shares the airwaves with the 23rd district here in Chicago, for those of you not familiar with the 19th district geographicly it uses the same north and south borders as the 23rd district Fullerton to Lawrence. The 19th district begins at Clark and heads west. Tonight they have been having non-stop craziness.

Some of the highlights so far was the first dispersal of the year for the “Bucket Boys” these are the guys with the pickle buckets that drum in front of busy places. There is a guy running down Lincoln Ave in a hospital gown and his private parts keep falling out as he is running. They have a love triangle on Hoyne Ave. with one of the participants armed with a box-cutter. There are a group of drunk people doing push-ups and sit-ups in an alley, off of Southport. Someone who lives on Newport heard what he thought was an explosion turned out that it was the EL going by, he just moved here from out of town and it is his first night living there and was not used to the noise the EL makes.

All of this was in the last 10 minutes, as soon as somthing happens in the 23rd district I will post it.

Time Out

Will be out doing a few things for the next few hours. I need a break from doing this every night. So look for a post around 10 but I do not expect that it will be one of the retroactive posts with content that happened while I was away.

This will be the last regular post tonight. I will continue to monitor the radio and if anything interesting happens I will post about it. If you see anything in your area make sure you call 911 and report it. If we work at it, every night can be as quiet as tonight.

9:30 Post

Nothing to report, I actually checked the radio a couple of times to make sure it was on. It was just things have gotten real quiet around here tonight. So in order to make the post interesting I thought I would add a few of the spots that the Police like to eat at. Police usually know all the good places. 3292 Broadway is probably the number one place that they request time to take lunch at, this is the address for Windy City Gyros, a close second is Thorek Hospital, I checked the Cafeteria hours here and found that it was closed they must have a special deal for the Police.

in a traffic stop last week on an unrelated incident.
The police have asked for the pod camera footage at Wilson and
Sheridan for help in sorting this out. All the video showed was three
black males fleeing south on Sheridan from the El Pollo Loco lot.
