We were with them briefly, on the first few stops of their evening patrol, as they checked out local schools and parks, a commercial/industrial area near the western edge of the neighborhood, a hot spot near the Belt Railway tracks that is a concern because of underage drinking, and other places.
Video highlights of our ride-along are posted on the Southwest Chicago Post's YouTube channel:

Let's focus on the new gang that was identified as up and operating at Kennedy H.S. the Crazy Roaches. The gang has been getting hammered by CPD.ReplyDelete
The leader of the Crazy Roaches is a tall bald kid that walks the streets of Garfield Ridge every night. If you see this guy doing something wrong-call the police!
I am sure that noone really walks the streets of Garfield Ridge "every night." The gang never really was a "gang" & none of the boys have been seen together for over one yearDelete
