This discovery might earn someone an advanced degree! Maybe even a Gold Star!
  • It's too early to tell if the economy is a major factor in Chicago's rising crime, officials say, but already one police unit is focusing on areas hit hardest by the financial meltdown.

    "Abandoned buildings breed crime," police spokeswoman Monique Bond said.

    Officers in the Troubled Buildings Unit have been identifying abandoned properties, patrolling them to keep gangs, vandals and other criminals out and getting the city involved in dealing with the owners, Bond said.

    "All cities will be faced with some crimes of opportunity as a result of a downtrodden economy, and we are addressing them," Bond said, adding that police don't know yet how much of a role the meltdown is playing.

Well if Monique says it, it must be true. Maybe this will earn us a spot in the elite Troubled Buildings Unit (TBU). Meet Chicago's newest crime fighting tool:

A troubled economy the reason for all the crime? Really? With all the job losses, watch the dope business go up. Lots of people will want to be stoned to forget about their troubles. Thus, the fight for those street corner deals. They even have a new business, call in your dope order, and its delivered to your door.

I think we should have torn down all of the projects with the people still in them. Not doing so was Mayor Daley's biggest mistake.

The economy has been in trouble for well into a year.

Let us not blame Obama.

The Troubled Buildings Unit has been around for over 3 years. The vacant building program and drug and gang house enforcement has been around more than ten years. Why is this news? Frank Main must've been bored and needed some filler.

Sun Times Nov19, 2008

"Daley is a former law-and-order states attorney who has crusaded against gangs, guns and drugs during nearly two decades as mayor.

Asked whether drug-dealing by gangs remains on his priority list, Daley said, “Oh, yeah. It does.”

Weis’ remarks have been ridiculed on a police blog, but aides said they were taken out of context.

“His statement was directed in the context of prioritization--not importance......"
WTF is that suppposed to mean.What is the difference between importance and prioritization. If I can master vague speak, can I apply for a job and receive a $140,000 job like shit head Bond?

For pennies on the dollar.

And the first wise investment of his entire, silver spooned life.

When the supply of drugs are reduced, with the demand remaining the same, the price increases.

Should the supply decrease and the demand increase, the price increases even more.

Glut the market, ie., increase the supply, and the price decreases.

As does the value of individual retail locations.

Decreased prices compel increased sales, either spreading the sales force thin, or requiring an increase in that sales force.

Increasing the sales force, especially in a short period of time, decreases the ability to thoroughly vet said sales force.

An untested sales force is a weak sales force, easily susceptible to bad decisions and prone to errors.

And the finely tuned drug dealing machine destroys itself by it's own, frantic motions.

Suit filed in Fox River drownings
November 19, 2008 at 7:47 PM

The mother of a student who drowned in the Fox River last week while on a school retreat filed a wrongful death lawsuit today against the school, the campground that hosted the event and retreat organizers.

The lawsuit, filed in Cook County Circuit Court by Virginia Choice, the mother of Melvin Choice III, alleged that the defendants failed to secure paddle boats or warn that the plugs on the bottom of the boats had been removed. The boats had been set aside for winter.

Just go to the 005th dist. there is approximately 8-10 abando's on each block especially in Roseland. There are abando's that have been empty for over 5 years. Why can't the city of the County take control of these properties? Take the building owner to court, order the demolition, and the city sell the property. Because there are lazy Alderman in the ward. I got one word for you BULLDOZER!
