Micro news site DNAInfo.com runs a detailed story about Wednesday’s Wrigleyville and Boystown CAPS meeting. It’s a good read.
“Crimes such as robberies and batteries in Lakeview have indeed increased in the past two years, and a violent summer in 2011 ignited tensions between various those offering [sic] youth services and other members of the community.”
Honestly like that is about as rare as white tiger sightings and CAPS officers agreeing to take polygraphs. We hesitate to call reports about the decline of our neighborhood “reassuring,” but we’ll go with that for now.
UPDATE 7 June 2013: DNAInfo has heavily edited the linked story, making it friendlier toward “youth” and CAPS statisticians.
