Interesting. 2-3 Days after the original community organization alert posted. Hmmmm

After North Ave Beach fiasco, one has to wonder if this was going to get released at all, and if this forced the police to reveal their hand and release the information? Kudos to those involved if so.

everyone should know about this website:

it's full of horrible news that's happening in Chicago these days. here I thought the S. Loop was immune... stupid me.

we all need to be very careful and insist the police can do their jobs and "serve and protect".

I've been going to 12th Street beach for years and there is an increased police presence this summer. This past week in less than 2 hours I saw a police officer on an ATV, 2 officers on bikes, 2 officers on horses, and there was a squad car parked next to the beach house for a short time. I was amazed to see 6-8 different police officers in such a short period of time in one place.

I just heard they may have caught the folks. If this is true, it will take the eye witness (or witnesses) to show up in court to prosecute. PLEASE KEEP US UPDATED as we should all try to go to the court date as a show of support.
