Party Bus Problem

  • The driver of an SUV was charged with DUI after he sideswiped a bus rented out for a party on the inbound Eisenhower Expressway, injuring 19 people, Illinois state police said.

    Fiftee people on the bus and four people in the beige SUV were injured when the SUV hit the left side of the bus and rolled over around 2:30 a.m. near the Ashland Avenue exit, state police said. Most of the injuries were minor, but one person suffered a broken leg, authorities said.

    The bus is owned by a private limo service that chauffeurs customers around the city in customized buses and SUVs with flat screen televisions, stereo systems and even a dance floor, according to the company's website.

We got a letter about this later this same morning:

  • SCC, you've heard about these party buses? They travel the west and south side, loaded with guns, drugs, gang bangers and strippers. They are traveling problems, coming to a ghetto corner near you.
Be aware if you come upon one of these buses that you are badly outnumbered and quite possibly outgunned.

If I remember correctly, one of these "party busses" was involved in a multiple shooting scene a couple weeks ago at Western and Grenshaw in 012. Duly noted; thanks for the heads up SCC.

I see these party buses every weekend on the westside. We all know it's only time before something happens. You have about 75 peole or plus on board drinking and with guns. What do you think the outcome is going to be?

Guns, booze and strippers sounds fun. Maybe the city can outlaw or over tax these now, to save the children...

OK, what's the over and under on the number of LINK cards on any of these buses? SNAP cards? 9mm's? IR#'s? Warrants, investigative alerts? Orders of protections? Jobs? Jobs, yikes!

As Maynard G. Krebs used to say, scream really, in a manner similar to stepping in shit: WORK!?!

You think one of these useless alderfools can come up with a resolution outlawing these travelling bars. No, figure out how to squeeze more money from the working stiffs. Maybe we can install slot machines on these buses and at least we'll generate some of that LINK money back. Fucking shitheads and alderman. I Hate them all...

But the best part of the story was the girl saying they had hired the party bus for the "birthday of a dead relative." wtf? A work night, 2:30 a.m. with 50 people on board. No one has to get up for work in the morning. Imagine that.

Some of these party busses are owned by Chester Wilson (chief of staff to Alderman Carrie Austin).

This is all tongue in cheek, right? The last dozen or so of these buses have been filled with drunk 23 year olds on bachelor/bachelorette parties

Nice a can of gang bangers ... that is why I only go visit my relatives in the city during the week between 9 a.m. and NOON when the gang bangers are still sleeping for the most part.. Daley's old neighborhood has become worse or as bad as the so called BAD NEIGHBORHOODS.. and that use to be a community of hard working families.. that is where I was born and raised till 8 years ago..when it got so bad most of your neighbors couldn't even speak ENGLISH.. after over 100 years of my family living in that area it was time to get out.. still have a few that haven't left but will be doing so soon.. can't afford to live their anymore.. such as shame.. the DEMOCRATS ruined the city with their taxes.. greed.. bans no one wants to be in the city but the gang banger now..

Those party buses that go to rock n roll mcd's are always filled with undesireables that if they don't cause fights on problems on clark are involved in scuffles inside mcd's. What a great way to make blood money, do the special instead.

Yep, the Westside Party Bus is a rolling crime scene with guns and drugs and stupid on board. They roll up and down streets stopping and dealing, and getting people upset when one guy steps out and says the wrong thing to a lady when her man is with her.

Better develop a plan for dealing with these.

I saw film of a bus takeover by a gunman in the Philippines, and the police reponse -- it was a complete disaster, panicked coppers stitching the bus with M-16s from both sides, terrified passengers on the floor trying to survive.

You can't see inside these charter things. Just one long, black-tinted window.

A stop will bring escape windows popping open, just enough to see hands dropping guns out. S__t flying out the roof escape hatch. Whole motherf__ers also gonna be trying to jump if they are hot.

What do you do? Best scenario -- get it into a well-lighted area like a parking lot, preferably with one side up against a wall to eliminate the crossfire thing, and order 'em out one at a time.

Ha. Good luck when it'll be G2 going on inside there, and cars are all down on third call to address "mental nephew won't take medicine" and fourth call to address "strange dog in front yard."

Worst scenario -- night of course -- it dives down a narrow residential street and everybody tries to bail over everybody else's back, like toothpaste coming out of a tube, running in all directions except for the one who'll stay hiding behind the seat, all wall-eyed on "leaf" or some s__t, waiting to kill you.

A carload is bad enough. This will take all night.

Need a new illustrated chapter in the book. "Felony Stop -- Tour Bus."

Holy crap. Thanks for the info on this. We are sure not hearing this on CBS...
BTW,they have had a "party boat" at the Croissant Marina on the Cal Sag for YEARS! At least at the "party boat", there are only drugs and "wimin", or has that changed in the last couple of years?

OT -- (OverTime) -- Gay Pride Parade coming Sunday, 750,000 estimated last year. Ald. Tunney is stretching route out more in a straight line, "eliminate twists and turns in crowded neighborhood" and "make it closer to train stations for spectators."

Everybody knows what goes on -- the drinking, the fights, the unmentionables in public -- but there is as little TV coverage on this as there is on PR Fest or Billiken or NATO or the other "made it through by the skin of our teeth"-type events. Today they fill up TV "news" time with cooking tips and new exercise machines.

Good news -- Skilling is working on a thunderstorm.

Oh -- how are the elderly getting along in this heat wave? Not a word anywhere.

Not too well from what I could see. Night before last, through the grace of God, I came along at 1 AM to find an old gentleman on his back in a hallway. By his reckoning he had been there five or six hours.

There is a need for frozen turkeys and window fans and new shoes and things in places other than Englewood, as surprising as this fact may be. The contrast here is a lot to deal with. I am just sick of obese, loudmouthed, endlessly demanding motherf__ers.

Some of our old people die very quietly -- too polite to cry out for help because they "might bother someone."

Dont you coppers have an RPG laying around the evidence locker? How about you pump a grenade or rocket into the party bus and write it up as a faulty catalytic converter or something. Come on SWAT, get creative out there!

They have been around a couple of years. Funny how when once a huge fight broke out inside a party bus. All that was left was a bus with all the windows broken out and a bus driver who shit his pants sitting in the driver seat. All the savages fled on foot like roaches. Wonder what stolen credit card that bus was booked on. HA

I am losing it here.

" buses...are traveling problems..."

You know they have to be online, Twitter, send txt msg where bus is picking up tonight, etc.

Someone else is expected to provide subsidized "food desert buses" while this goes on and the choirs at the triple-parked megachurches clap and stomp and rock the house.

Was just on TV -- one of the churches did buy a "food van" and it got stolen in like a week.

Here -- "In the course of reporting my story on Chicago's new produce stands today, I learned something shocking: I live in a food desert--in Lakeview."

Jesus Christ, even Capone made a pretense, running a soup kitchen or something. Party bus goes by, only thing the "community" gets back is another dead kid. "Wrong place, wrong time" -- like asleep in bed or playing outside.

People are still walking around Burr Oak Cemetery in a daze, looking for Babyland. The manager got 12 years in prison, they got $50 in the "class action suit." Blank incomprehension. They are not moving to Lake Forest off this. It's not sinking in.

What a situation.

Thank you!
