Now: A hit-and-run party bus struck "they're saying 15 cars" at Broadway and Roscoe. And it's now on the Drive at Addison.

#Chicago #Scanner
...Caller says he is pursuing the party bus and it's still striking vehicles.

"It's a white party bus" that has a black stripe and "limousines" on the side of it.

...Cars struck "up and down" Broadway per an officer on-scene. Another hit-and-run at Addison/Bwy.

#Chicago #ChicagoScanner
..."The party bus says 'black label,' but it's a party bus, not a liquor."

#Chicago #ChicagoScanner
...The motorist says he has the party bus blocked in at a dead-end at Belmont Harbor.

#Chicago #ChicagoScanner
...He ran out of land.
A little Turtle Wax and nobody'll know the difference.

Also known as the Water Tower Place strategy.
...This "plan" demonstrates the city's inability or unwillingness to address the actual problem.

The problem is a small number of violent people who come with large groups of young people with no ill intent.
...The "large groups" formed on the Mag Mile, particularly Water Tower Place), until the mall shut them down in 2019.

The groups moved to the Loop and Millennium Park.

Now, the groups will simply move to (flashback!) a beach or other public space.

Same problem. New location.

Working to verify video of The Bean shooting. If legitimate, the scenario is different from what we may have all been thinking. the video, a male wearing a ski mask has his hands in his hoodie as a bystander is heard saying, "he got a 30."

Another male jumps on the ski mask-wearing male's back, knocking him forward and down. A sound similar to a muffled gunshot is heard.
...Text on the video says the make shot himself in the chest.

Again, this all needs to be verified.

However, it is common for people who have guns in these large groups to wear ski masks.

The Chicago Reader thinks it has identified secret ShotSpotter devices (blue). We can say this unequivocally: After monitoring CPD radio traffic in the green-circled areas for nearly 9 years, we have NEVER heard a ShotSpotter dispatch there.
...The reader FOIAed repair orders from Motorola to build their list of secret ShotSpoters. Perhaps Motorola also repairs other non-ShotSpotter devices like traffic monitoring equipment and pods?
...Furthermore, the city data portal lists every ShotSpotter alert with GPS coordinates. Literally anyone can review *and map* the city's ShotSpotter alerts. In fact, by investing 2 minutes of valuable time, we just did that. Here's where the city's ShotSpotters are

Lori finally figured out that she can't send the police department home without becoming politically responsible for whatever happens on the streets.

Again, given her lack of foresight, sometimes it is very hard to believe that she was a high-level attorney in private practice.
....Reading for comprehension is not a common skill set among Twitter users.
....Ah! Right, right. The mayor is backing away from sending ya'll home on Friday, but we're gonna fire all of ya. Right. Right, right, right. That's even less do-able than sending 'em home.
