Time to Dump the Fest

  • An 18-year-old was fatally shot in the city's Humboldt Park neighborhood in what has been a violent weekend in the neighborhood despite festivals and parades.
"despite festivals and parades"??? Newsflash morons - the parade attracts the violence. It provides a nexus, a center, for all of the fools to come out and flash signs and strut around and pretty much make asses of themselves before the guns come out and wound anyone in the right place:
  • The neighborhood has seen three shootings since Saturday, including a brazen daytime shooting and a slaying that claimed the life of a teen.
We recall the people who ran a certain south side ethnic parade cancelled it when the drinking, public intoxication and indecency was out of control. But this "festival with a body count" carries on as usual.

You can call it whatever you want. 4200 w division is not Humboldt park.

Some of the most vocal critics of this thing are themselves Puerto Rican! It's an embarrassment for them but not for the well-connected with financial interests apparently.

PR Fest this weekend...Gay Pride next weekend (but it seems like they're having events all week long).....both should be cancelled.

I was going to say the same exact thing. The southside had sense enough, as a neighborhood, to stop the parade when the drinking was getting out of hand. Here, these people are shooting and killing each other but instead of cancelling it, they actually expanded it. Four f@cking days this year or drunken ghetto mayhem.

Who is the Alderman?? Its a drop-out Alderman if there isn't a complete stop to this parade until it is near guaranteed a safe site for law-abiding citizens to participate in and have a truly enjoyable time (without needing to take cover from vicious criminals and violent killers). Take a lesson from an Alderman on the South-Side who took a stand and dropped supporting the Ward parade until it dramatically changed for the better. The city can't afford crime laden parades. The cost is too high. Where is the Mayor??? Someone heard a group talking about holding back payment of property taxes until the murder rates and brash criminals are stopped. Would they do that??

I don't get why the media (mainly the trib) ALWAYS calls Humboldt park the northwest side but reffered to the Hermosa neighborhood as the west side on Saturday. Humboldt park has ALWAYS been on the west side. Doesn't matter how many yuppies gentrify that place, it's a west side neighborhood! WTH!

Don't forget about the riot fest being canceled because of some ruined grass. I guess there is a double standard.

This POS Maldonado canceled the Riot Fest because the atendees were smoking Mary-jane but it's ok for the fucking gan-bangers to have a wild wild west shooting in the middle of the day?
He's a fucking hypocrite.

But lets also get rid of Riot Fest, too many rockers and hipsters invading our treasured park, bringing with them money to spend in the neighborhood ! Now about that artificial how much was it gonna cost to get it up and running ? I wonder if the gate receipts from the Puerto rican fest will cover the cost.....oh thats right....the fest doesn't bring in any money to the neighborhood. Whatcha say Aldercreature Maldonado, the park is for everybody, but just more so for those of a certain ethnic background !

Oh, Alderman Maldonado - yoo hooo - time to get with the program - this fest is killing "your people".

Alderman Maldonado refused to have an entrance fee for Puerto Rican Fest citing "this would be political suicide" - it's all about saving Maldonado's job - not about the people of this city.

Yes, whites must cancel their fest when there is some urinating on the street and a few drunk fights, but minorities will not and must not despite annual shootings, homicides, assaults, damage to property, arson, looting and other assorted mayhems. After all, the minorities must have an outlet for their frustrations and rage.

SCC don't you mean two drunken parades plus an entire river dyed green and that one got canceled ,but was reinstated after some time. Did not the Taste of Chicago also have bloody violence a few years ago, but it still goes on. Wait .... Is not the Gay Pride Fest a continual problem every year and it's only a matter of time before this fest turns bloody unless new safe Guards are instituted ?


The fact is unfortunately a lot of ethnic and non- ethnic festivals alike throughout the city have had their fair share of violence. So if we cancel one festival we must cancel them all! One common denominator among all the festivals in the city is that most citizens that attend are not the problem and are good and peaceful citizens. However, it's the minority of thugs who regardless of the event aspire to disrupt the event and commit violent acts. So the question still remains what do we do about it?

Unfortunately there is no clear cut answer, but we can start by, getting rid of the top ineffective CPD Command Staff, shaming liberal prosecutors and judges, keeping these thugs in tough no nonsense prisons, legislative changes that severely limit rights for thugs , indemnify officers when dealing with these thugs , fair CPD promotional and specialized unit placement ((which will motivate officers) , and brace backing from the top down (meaning don't tell us to lock them up ,but when shit hits the fan crawl inside your little holes and deny you told us to lock them up). Along with the implementation of the above suggestions and tactical changes at these events perhaps it may have a positive effect of minimizing the amount violence at these events so they may continue ,and it may also minimize the amount of violence in the city.

What about all that 'unreported' violence at the gay Pride Parade?
My sources tell me there was at least two gang pinchings and a few drive-by slappings.
Why is McCarthy covering up this violence?

Austin, maybe, but a mile too far west to be Humboldt Park.
Which reminds me of the idiot realtor who tried to sell me a property in that area by calling it 'the hot Humboldt Park West area'. Humboldt Park West? Creative, but no sale.

While still a PPO i was assigned to the fest. Back then it was an ENTIRE WEEK LONG!! Talk about an education-although of hispanic heritage i couldn't figure out why a festival had to go on for so long just to increase the traffic, parking madness, and of course the gangbanging. Watching the SOS use a magnetometer in the lagoon was eye opening, especially when a couple guns inside a large ziplock bag was found. And the long time to "close" the park was another circus. Now the fest is down
to 4 days too many. But Rahmulus knows that Bread & Circuses kept the people happy in Ancient Rome and is not going to distract the sheeple-regardless of their ethnic/racial barrier.

Did you know that Bloomingdale/Laramie was in "Jefferson Park?"

Really. That's what the sign in front of the ticky-tacky air-nailed particle-board "townhomes" there said...

Hot area, hot, hot, hot. Saw a story tonight, foreigners have snapped up $104 billion in collapsed US residential property.

Things won't change because they don't want change. The only thing that we can do is leave this city and state as soon as we can retire. Thank God it's down to a year that I have left. There should be one parade, a grand one with just one flag. Not the gay flag, nor the Mexican or Puerto Rican flags; no Irish or polish or Greek or Iranian flags, hell, I don't even want to see an italian flag. We would do well to have just one parade with just the flag of The USA and that is on the 4th of July .
