5-Year-Old Boy Pulled From Southeast Side Harbor

I wondered the same and found another news report that didn't mention the father but said the mother stayed home that night and allowed the child to go to the lakefront with a male friend of hers. Now why this 'friend' wasn't watching this kid the story doesn't say.  (Jul 6, 2008 | post #5)

Boy dies after fall into Jackson Park Harbor

This occurred outside the 63rd street beach. Now for those not familiar, there is a section of cement blocks that serve as 'steps' where you can look down and see the water crash into the rocks below. Now these steps aren't smooth like the ones north near 31-35street. The cement steps near 63rd are jagged, uneven with cracks so large an adult can easily trap his foot in and trip. So, apparently this child was running on these steps AT NIGHT and fell into those rocks and the waters below.  (Jul 4, 2008 | post #1)

Three Slain In South Shore Home

That fireman was shot at 2900 block of East 80th Street, I see this happened around East 78th street. Those Five found dead in the home a couple months ago was that also around the same area?  (Jun 30, 2008 | post #6)

Boy, 3, crushed by gate on Near North Side

Tribune updated the story, at first I thought the gate was moving but the gate was still and closed. The kids were playing and pulling on it and this huge gate came off it's hinges and crushed this kid. Yeah, you're right lawsuit. But not the CHA/City this time. It's the homeowner and whoever put that gate up.  (Jun 27, 2008 | post #9)

Boy, 3, crushed by gate on Near North Side

As I remember these metal gates surround those expensive homes in the Cabrini Green area. They slide back and forth horizontally as cars drive into the driveways. I haven't been around that area in awhile. How high are those black gates? 8'-9' high? It's like a metal fort around a home.  (Jun 27, 2008 | post #1)

8-year-old in van critically wounded

Humboldt Park NEIGHBORHOOD not the park itself. I see the article says seriously wounded not critically as the title says. Hope that is the case, and best wishes to him.  (Jun 24, 2008 | post #7)

Sisters held in Cabrini-Green stabbing death

My question is why? It's a 56 year old man and the two of them are beating him down so...why did they go for the knife? What the kill him for?  (Jun 18, 2008 | post #8)

Teen Girl Fatally Shot In Maywood

The person responsible was the shooter but looking over the update to this story I have to add, you don't get into arguments with men standing on a street corner at night. Apparently one of the men walked over to the car and shot her.  (Jun 4, 2008 | post #9)

Reckless homicide, gun charges filed in South Side crash ...

Good police work, the only injuries were to the occupants of the car AND they pulled three guns off the streets. Awesome!! Good job.  (Jun 4, 2008 | post #10)

Ex-coach gets life for sexually abusing students -- Eleme...

That's the problem there wasn't any evidence. Yes neighbors said kids were in and out of his house. And people on the block called him a mentor to kids (he was a basketball coach etc) But, I haven't heard any evidence that he raped or assaulted these kids. Maybe the jury heard something we haven't.  (Jun 3, 2008 | post #16)

School Teacher Among Six Killed Over Weekend

Not necessarily. All the shooting deaths over the weekend (according to the article) every single one of them were on the south side of Chicago. The city is not on fire and people aren't being shot all over.  (Jun 2, 2008 | post #11)

9-Year-Old Reported Missing

other news report said he was bipolar and went missing twice before. I wonder if he walked out the house alone at 9pm or disappeared after he was left playing by himself in front of that house. anyway, i hope they find him....again.  (May 21, 2008 | post #3)

Boy Disappears After Leaving Baby Sitter's House

He was a boy not a girl, he should be okay. The only boy I know of killed by some perv was that 14 year old who met an ex-con on a chatline and decided to meet up with him late night in Lincoln Park. That was three years ago. If you've been following these chicago area missing teen cases the last couple months they're usually found at friends/aunties etc houses. Hopefully that's the case kid.  (May 10, 2008 | post #6)
