With the warm weather, lots of people out on the West Side of Chicago yesterday around 4:30PM. Most people sitting on their porches keeping distance but there were a few basketball games going on. Almost seemed normal except for the masks (50%?).
 
Only crime I saw (around 3PM) was the 20 people on motorcycles screaming onto the 290 Eastbound at Oakley. Popping wheelies, flipping off the 3 CPD SUVs following them. Strange fun but what do I know.

Those darned Outlaws and their noisy Harley's.

Harley?
I’d like to see that wheelie.

They ain't what they used to be. Fuel injected, 6 gears, 4 valves per cylinder, and a torque peak that feels just above idle. I'd consider a new Road King if they were $2000

 

 

 

 

 

Also, I'd say crime is up due to all the new social distance/stay at home laws being broken.

Oh they weren't Harleys, they were those little ree ree REEE bikes. Nimble little guys, LEOs don't have a chance unless they ram into one.

There are little gangs of crotch rockets riders that I've seen out there driving like total morons. Absolutely not Harley riders.

Sorry for the paywall:  https://chicago.sunt...lbourn-lawndale

 

A man on house arrest for carrying a gun without a license allegedly shot and killed a 15-year-old boy who lived across the street from his Lawndale home, Cook County prosecutors say.
 
Dequawn Little, 21, was allegedly close enough to his electronic monitoring box, located in the dining room of the house, that he didn’t trigger a violation, according to a bond proffer prepared by the Cook County state’s attorney’s office.
 
 
 
Florida:
 
 
On March 19, a drug suspect with a lengthy rap sheet was released as part of Hillsborough County’s efforts to thin out the jail population amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. One day later, deputies say, he committed murder.

Well that was bound to happen. They are in jail because you couldn't play nice by the rules. Sad

There seems to be a new boldness for breakung into homes during a time now where most people might be expected to be at home.

Doorbell Camera Captures Audio From Moment Alleged Home Intruder Was Shot in Neptune Beach, FL

https://news.yahoo.c...-233448171.html

A person was reportedly shot in Neptune Beach, Florida, on April 14, after allegedly breaking into a home. The home’s doorbell camera captured audio of the suspected break-in, and police are searching for suspects.

In the video, a hooded man can be seen repeatedly rushing the front door, eventually getting through, followed by two others. Gunshots can be heard and the three suspects run from the home.

The Neptune Beach Police tweeted on their official Twitter account that they have been searching for suspects and urged the public to provide any information to the police tip-line.

The person shot was taken to a local hospital and treated with gun shots wound to the chest, reports said.. Credit: Neptune Beach Police via Storyful
