Now we'll see if all those media people concerned about black on black crime are as bothered by black on white crime. Expect columns by the usual suspects.

Al and Jesse and Black columnists are worried about nooses. Not a word about Black on White crime or the murder of a gifted Black University Of Chicago student. How many Black people have been lynched in the last fifty years?

Please........put the meth pipe down for a moment. Most south & west siders DO call the police, they just don't come unless someone has already died and for some strange reason the thugs some how know exactly who called on them.

And endless cycle .... incidents like these cause many folks to cross the street or secure their belonging when they spot groups of young black men in close proximity.

Young black men notice such snubs and then become angered to the point of attacking these avoiders .... an endless cycle.

Around that part of Old Town there are still a few low income apt. complexes where I used to see some shady characters all of the time. I don't necessarily think that these kids came from the South or West Side. I bet they came from only a few blocks away. A couple of years ago my roommate who was coming home from the Sedgwick stop was robbed at knife point two doors down from our aparment on Mohawk in Old Town. This wasn't at night but in broad daylight around 5:30 when there are ton of people coming home from work. She said it was some young HS age kids who robbed her. As nice and expensive as the area is you still have some questionable characters in the area.

So man or woman up and don't show signs of fear and proceed past them...

LP actually has one of the highest robbery rates from what I understand. About four years ago I was renting an apt. on Sheffield and Armitage and two young minority kids robbed two girl friends of mine acrosss the street from my house at about 3:30pm. It was in the summertime so there was still plenty of daylight out. They put a gun to the belly of one of the girls robbed them both and then by this time feeling more confident they went down the block and put the gun to another girl's head and robbed her. Then later that year our block was roped off because someone had robbed the corner 7 eleven shot an officer on their way out and hid in one of yards of a home on the block. I have had other female friends robbed around the DePaul area as well. It usually seems like it is women that are targeted especially women alone. I guess those chickenSh*ts think they will put up less of a fight.

There is a chart online that shows the crimerates per neighborhood. It is pretty interesting. You'd be surprised how much more goes on in Wrigleyville than Bridgeport...

Hold their parents and all parents of little hoods - black, white, yellow, red or purple - accountable for their kids actions.

I lived in the heart of the Sheffield neighborhood (now referred to by the realty types and new transplants as "DePaul") for 4 years and the unreported (as in not reported in the news) crime in that area is unbelievable. There are a LOT of assaults, armed robberies and burglaries occurring over there because that area is a magnet for lowlife criminals.

The reason for this has everything to do with the stupidity (for lack of a better term) of guys and gals like LP Trixie who think they're living in some type of faux-urban Winnetka. They refuse to acknowledge there is danger lurking even in oh-so-precious Lincoln Park. Walking around drunk at night alone talking on your cell phone on a dimly lit street (I saw countless young men and women doing this over the years) sends a signal to the criminals that the pickins is ripe.

Wake up people, it may be lily white and awful pretty but its still the city.
