This one-legged gang banger drove half a mile to destroy city property under a POD camera for over 30 seconds! He targeted the sign to disrespect his gang opposition.

did you go verify his gang credentials and discuss his intentions?

My thought as well. I wonder why this alderman is so familiar with these "gangs."

If you are walking and get lost, always ask a one-legged person how to get to your destination.  They always know the quickest way to get there.

At court, unlike Chauvin, at least he'll have a leg to stand on.

It's been years since I knew anything about them, but it was fun when Chicago first put up the cameras. The news would show clips of people under a camera preparing to do something. One of the group would point at the camera, and they'd move away... into view of the next camera.

This guy is an inspiration to crippled people.

He never let his disability stop him from being a big piece of shiat.

I want to know why he's stealing a sign for 40th street.  It's not some sign with a funny name on it or anything.  And it doesn't look like he's trying to keep it in good condition to hang on a wall or anything.  What did 40th street do to this guy?  Did 40th street cut off his leg?  I want to know the story here.

My first guess is Cawthorn, and I wish I had your ignorance.

That's why SF could never keep Haight-Ashbury signs up at that intersection.

Hippy gangs and their turf wars.

How does the alderman know this guy is a gangbanger? Is there a contingent of conversion van gangs in his city?

Don't know much about the city, do you? Aren't supposed to be out plowing the north 40 or something?

When I worked for the City of Chicago, one of the cops assigned to our department told me this sort of thing happened to make it harder for police to respond to calls, either because 911 callers wouldn't be able to identify the nearest intersection easily unless they know the neighborhood, or because the responding officers might miss a turn when responding to a call.

I doubt any of those cameras were ever meant to be monitored in real time.  IE, they probably record footage that is only reviewed later if something happened nearby.

WTF I can't stand on my Bosu ball with one leg, and this dude is climbing on top of a van with one leg?! Do they still publish that book "Final Exit" or is banned now?

Oh, "Chicago" is back as a Republican buzzword now?
I need to update my bingo card.

Also, black guy = gang banger.

Also, local politician is on:
Finance, Zoning, Rules, Aviation, Housing/Real Estate, Economic Development, Workforce, Contracting Oversight, and Public Safety committees
Yikes. Cringe.
This is what happens when being a HOA board member isn't enough for you, and you don't want to be a cop because it involves work.

Also, the sign at the end of my street was crooked. I think a truck bumped into it, or something. Eventually, some citizen climbed up there and bent it back in place. I don't know if it was a gang banger or a white guy.

Cops don't stop crime, they show up afterwards.

I will agree with him on one thing though. It's a waste of money to have security cameras watching everything 1984-style, just to have the illusion of protecting a street sign. Let's get rid of those cameras, and the speed trap cameras too, while we're at it.

Lots of gangs must be stealing that sign too. Why won't the cops stop these horrible black gangs?? No white people would ever steal a sign. Where in Chicago is that, anyhow?

Maybe it's all a honeypot. Now the criminals think nobody is watching the cameras, so they will all start criming in front of the cameras and they will get caught.
