Police still heavily patrolling Morse Avenue

This past week the Chicago Police Department TAC units have cruising Morse Avenue in force. They drive down Morse Avenue pulling over and searching any male of color. Around 8 p.m. a TAC unit did one such pull over and blocked Morse and Glenwood for nearly 15 minutes before letting the young man go.

In other news, Gidget has returned and was spotted aggressively panhandling in front of Soo Liquors. She also had one of her boyfriends buy her a bottle of Vodka, whereas she promptly opened it up and was spotted drinking on the public way.

Plus, multiple neighbors were spotted tying their dogs to trees or posts on Morse Avenue, leaving them unattended while they either bought coffee or went inside a store to shop. No tickets were issued.

Thanks for update. I think we knew that Gidget would be back eventually.

Morse Avenue.
Friday night. 11:00 PM.
The Morse Fresh Market Building.
"Man of Color" in brown winter coat with fur-trimmed hood loitering and furtively looking about....

Contrast that with "men and women of much less color" happily enjoying themselves at Chuckies, Mayne's Act One, and even J.B. Alberto's.

Hey you big dumb ass! What do you expect? They just had a major bust down there, and you think they aren't looking for others? Of course they are. You're as stupid as you are ugly!!! Dumb cock sucker!

Chip Bagg this isn't Chicago News Report,

Race isn't an inherent character flaw causing people to loiter. Yes the gangbangers on Morse are African American, the GDs. We have also had the Brazers and LKs around too who are Hispanic. White gangs nowadays are most likely in motorcycle gangs.

Wouldn't feel much better with a motorcycle gang trying to control Morse anymore than GDs or LKs. Personally I think it makes more sense to talk about which gang is trying to take back Morse.

Will keep my eyes peeled for loitering on Morse.

You do have the occasional white who falls in with the black gangster crowd

But thanks for info Chip Bagg, so the gang or dealers are trying to hang by Morse Fresh Market.

Sooo... The police are doing police work? Phew. Good. Now that we have that settled: are there any piles of sand or out of place bricks we should be worried about?

It is ironic that you posted this because shortly after 7:00 pm last night (Saturday 2-9) I walked from my apt near to Morse Fresh Market. As I was leaving and walking east between that towards the Red Line station at the corner, 2 mis 20's african american males converged between me and the corner screaming profanities and threats about who was and wasn't supposed to be selling drugs in that area. The taller and slightly older of the two kept identifying himself as "Barn Burner" and proclaimed repeatedly to be a member of the "G/D's". The other male wearing a fitted blue New Era Chicago Cubs baseball cap with a black brim was equally vehement about "Barn Burner" being out of his element. Several times these individuals began to walk away from each other and then reconverged. "Barn Burner" suggested several times to the other male that they "take it off of the main street". Each time they converged "Barn Burner" appeared to be reaching into his his jacket, as if for a weapon. This confrontation lasted for 45-60 seconds. At least 1 other pedestrian and I stopped and actually backed away from this volatile situation. Fortunately nothing happened, but for a moment there I thought there was going to be a real throwdown or something., SCARY, and I am not embellishing!

Just for the record: I looked at the time stamp on my Morse Market receipt (19:11:46) from last night so if there are tapes avaliable for the CPD camera that show the north side of Morse West of the Red Line station between 7:11 pm and 7:15 pm thay will see this incident.

But I dont understand.....Rogers Park is such a nice neighborhood. There's no crime here. Are you guys making things up?

Stanley Katakowski said...

Maybe all a yas all skanks ought a move then.

Philip McGregor Rogers said...

Wow that is scary Philhayshow.

I was on Morse Sunday for a short time and could tell the mood was not great. Some sketchy people hanging around there and the Narc car was patrolling up and down the street.

Haha Maureen.

Craig: I realize it's likely too late in life to improve your questionable interpersonal communication skills, so please accept that as the reason you get a ticket for parking your dog while others don't.

Everyone knows cops got monthly quotas and get favors if they write more than the quota. Craig is such an easy target that Officer Ponytail's wife got a free toaster oven for Christmas. Thanks Gernny for keepin 'em off my back.

billyjoe its never too late to turn over a new leaf.

The power of negative thinking can be quite prevalent and defeating on the internet.

Phillip: I make it a point not to take advice from dilettantes (like you) who feel compelled to go by three names instead of two, like most normal and non-pretentious people.

Stanley Katakowski said...

Goddammit it's getting fucking boring in here. Ain't there some fucking sand piles or loose sidewalk bricks to report around this fucking shithole? Holy fuck theres gotta be something better than a bunch of assclowns bitching at each other.

The preceding "Tourette's Moment" was brought to this site by the non-eloquent Stanley Katakowski.

Might be time to bring back the Tuesdays with Timmy segment to this program. Those were always fun.
