I think it’s awesome when the news reports that NO assaults have occurred. I hope this news can be reported everyday.

I am sure drunkards get beat up here and there but the fliers stated that it was the same crime, someone waiting in the alley and hitting someone over the head. It stated that it happened to several people.

I just read a flier during the blackout that said there were cat burglars breaking in at night around Abbott and Brighton. The signs were on Brighton. The neighbor who lives across from the burners “Jon” confirmed that a young woman had woken up in the middle of the night and when she yelled at the guy to get out, they got into a scuffle, and she was injured. She felt the person who had broken in KNEW the lay of the land inside her apartment. I want to be fair and give the newbie cop a second chance to check his facts. Maybe he should do that…
