New City Program?

The City has spent how many tens of millions sound-proofing houses around Midway and O'Hare? Perhaps it's time for the Rahm to offer to bullet-proof buildings around the Gold Coast?
  • Chicago police responding to a shooting discovered two bullet holes in a window of Northwestern Memorial Hospital in the Gold Coast Friday morning, Chicago police said.

    No one was injured. Police responded to the shooting in the 200-block of East Erie Street at about 4:18 a.m.

    Northwestern said it was a random incident and the projectiles hit the outpatient pavilion on Erie Street. The office was closed at the time.
And after the Gold Coast gets their windows, Rahm can start on the west and south sides.

"Northwestern said it was a random incident". Chicago universities have a long tradition of downplaying - or when they have the chance - completely hiding crimes that take place on or near campus.

See this is one of those great unmentioned things about living in Chicago. The convenience. You can get shot and don't have to travel to the hospital. Your already in it. Let's see the conservatives bitch about that.

The new normal is for everyone to day “it’s a random incident” so as not to piss Rahm off.

It all adds up to the new American hell in which the Democrat party’s criminal base is allowed to range free, like on the savanna.

It must be random. We can't scare the gold coast. We the city must make them feel safe. Remember All is well, Remain calm.

The Beast travels throughout every part of the city unchallenged. Rahm and his ilk have traded votes for your safety.

200 East aerie is not in the Gold Coast. When are Chicago’s newspaper going to hire some reporters and editors who actually know something about the city?

It's disturbing to think the medical care professionals could become victims of some idiot with a firearm and no self control. If they pack up and leave, well I guess the military medics there for training could take over.

Of course, Northwestern Hospital has no choice but to call it a "random incident". To say "This is yet another symptom of moral decay and a collapsing social order that threatens life in a once-great city" is just too lengthy of a soundbite. And too true.

You jest but the city is going to have to find ways to spend the windfall from the trump economic boom, so.

FWIW ... this was not at the University, but at the Hospital. They are separate and have been for a while now.

Intersting that the rounds hit up on the 4th floor. Given the high lobby, this might be closer to 6 floors up. The ER is directly across the street and security guards often stand outside in the overnight hours. Possible that we'll learn more about this one ...

I'm going to sound proof your house and
get the airlines to pay for it
I'm going to bulletproof your windows and
get the criminals to pay for it
All the crime in this city will be under my control.
I'm going to put a street tax on these thugs. They
will pay it or I will have them killed. Understand?

Yeah, totally "random" as if the bullets just appeared out of space and time, and pooooof, crash, bing, bang, boom, zap and crashed right through the window that just happened, randomly, to be in the path of the bullet...

*head shake* Ummm, bullshit! Some asshole fired those things - either missed another asshole and hit the hospital, or did it on purpose. Either way - that's a problem.

And forget the bulletproof windows - what about the wood houses with ultra thin siding? That's not bulletproof.

Northwestern "Random incident" that's why they have private security on elevators and walking the halls. That place has random incidents happening all the time. Be careful!

Northwestern hospital is a pretty good hotspot for thefts and the area after dark is good for muggings. Students and faculty get robbed to a good degree. Inside the hospital? Lots of theft of patients that Northwestern covers up.

Northwestern is the St. Rogers of the north side.
Lining up Erie St. like its family night at Jimmy’s on Maxwell & The Ryan.
Thugs know where to go when they miss, want to finish what was started or just to get in a little retaliation.

Maybe CPD needs one of those Avengers style helicarriers to provide a combat air patrol.
Does anybody have Tony Stark on speed dial?

Good thing random bullets can't kill people. Useless media trivializing shots being fired downtown.

Two violent robberies were reported in the Streeterville neighborhood Monday evening. No one is in custody.
