Chicago SUBWAY RESTAURANT locations in black neighborhoods get BULLET PROOF GLASS

Chicago Black Neighborhoods prove too unsafe and deadly for SUBWAY RESTAURANTS

While out on an unrelated assignment, CBS 2 investigative reporter Dave Savini decided to stop by a South Side Subway sandwich shop for a meal.
Savini was struck by the fact that the counter of the store at 116th Street and South Halsted was encased in bullet-proof glass.
Such a sight would be common at crime magnets like gas stations or currency exchanges, but a Subway?
The store was clean and looked just like any other well-run Subway restaurant, except for the bullet-proof protection for the employees and lack of a bathroom for customers.
In fact, a few patrons asked for hand sanitizer because they couldn’t wash their hands.
Savini took a few photos and sent out a tweet, saying the scene was a sad depiction of gun violence in Chicago:
The restaurant is located on the border of the Roseland and West Pullman neighborhoods, which has seen its share of gang violence.
However, according to a Chicago Tribune analysis, crime in those areas recently has declined.
Nonetheless, both communities rank in the top 15 in Chicago for violent crime.
Savini also posted his photos on Facebook, where one user remarked that there is a similar set up at a Subway in the Austin neighborhood.
An internet search also found a few bulletproof Subways in Oakland and Detroit.

Chicago Police Officer Dan Burke found dead at his residence - Class of 22 May 1991 (1957 - 2014)

I met Danny long before he became a Chicago police officer. Danny was a bar bouncer at Cracker's Dance Club which was located on the 4100 West 63rd Street. Cracker's was a hot dance club in the 1980's, taking the building that once housed the 1970's hot spot PePe's Lounge.

Danny back then was a muscle building gym work-dog. Based on his muscular build, I would guess his workout probably included some muscle building "supplements". One thing for sure was Dan Burke always took care of any problems arising at the busy nightclub.

Today Dan failed to show up to work at the Chicago Police Department. A "well being" check revealed the reason why. He was found dead of natural causes at his Mt. Greenwood residence.

So today I say goodbye to Danny! Godspeed to Chicago Police Officer Daniel Burke.

Johanson Little is just one of millions of black men who has AIDS - man charged with giving girlfriend HIV; wife died of AIDS

HIV / AIDS is greater with black men than gay men new study shows. 

A Chicago man is facing felony charges after failing to tell his ex-girlfriend that he had HIV and ended up giving her the virus, Cook County prosecutors said.
Johanson Little and the woman dated for a year between June 2012 and June 2013, Assistant State’s Attorney Dan Griffin said.
This February, the woman found out she tested positive for HIV, Griffin said.
The woman, who didn’t have sex with anyone else during her relationship with Little, subsequently found out from Little’s family that his wife died of AIDS — not ovarian cancer as he had told her, Griffin said.

    Angry Detroit Black Squatters Throw Taco Sauce At White Reporter After Being Evicted - Why be black if you can't act black!

    After disturbing a quiet neighborhood in Detroit for months, a group of squatters were evicted out of the home they occupied. However, they didn’t leave without a fight.
    WXYZ 7 reports that when one of their reporters tried to speak with them, a member of their party threw barbecue sauce at them. The news station first got the story after neighbors complained about the squatters. After some investigating, WXYZ learned that the people living in the house had a fake lease.
    But because of the law, Detroit police could not force them out.
    Over a six-month period, neighbors claim that the squatters brought much disruption to their community, until Chase Bank started the eviction process.
    A dumpster was placed outside of the home, signaling the end to the squatter’s occupancy in the home. But when a reporter tried to interview them, one of them threatened to shoot her.
    On the final day of eviction, the squatters threw food items at the reporter and the news truck.

    New York City Police Department's New Twitter Account ends up biting the NYPD on the ass - #myNYPD Twitter campaign to allow everyone to post pictures that glorified New York’s finest BUT INSTEAD it got an outpouring of pictures of apparent police brutality, misconduct and just downright nastiness

    The New York Police Department has learned the hard way that Twitter is a two-edged sword with a point that has deeply embedded itself into the department's self-image.

    The department this week decided to stick a virtual toe into the 21st century by launching a Twitter campaign to allow everyone to post pictures that glorified New York’s finest under the hashtag #myNYPD. It didn't exactly work out that way.

    Instead of the hoped-for pictures of police helpfully aiding citizens and happy cops on bicycles -- staples of the department’s official news feed -- it got an outpouring of pictures of apparent police brutality, misconduct and just downright nastiness.

    Portland Oregon City Worker Barbara Lorraine Peterson arrested for her part in an auto part ring - There have been a disproportionate number of city of Portland black workers arrested lately

    PORTLAND, Ore. – Police arrested a 53-year-old city of Portland employee Wednesday, accusing her of being involved in an auto theft ring where the vehicles were sold "on the black market" so to say.

    Barbara Lorraine Peterson, an employee at the Portland Bureau of Transportation’s Abandoned Auto Section, was arrested after she arrived at work, said Portland Police Bureau spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson.

    Simpson said Peterson was giving information about abandoned vehicles to an illegal tow truck driver and accepting money to provide the information. That tow truck driver would then steal the cars and then tow them to West Coast Car Crushing on North Columbia Boulevard where they were crushed and sold as scrap metal, Simpson said.

    Simpson said police learned about Peterson’s alleged activities during their auto theft investigation that included West Coast Car Crushing.


    Carla Oglesby, Ex-top aide to Todd Stroger gets 6 1/2 years for theft, money laundering

    Carla might want to blow her nose before her next mugshot... 

    A onetime top aide to former Cook County Board President Todd Stroger was taken into custody Wednesday immediately after a judge sentenced her to 6 ½ years in prison for stealing more than $300,000 in public funds.
    Carla Oglesby, 44, who was convicted last summer of theft and money laundering charges, had nothing to say before Judge James Linn handed down the sentence that was just 6 months above the minimum punishment.
    Oglesby becomes the second former high-level Stroger aide to be sentenced to prison since last month. Eugene Mullins, Stroger's friend since boyhood, was sentenced to 4 years and 3 months in prison for steering county contracts to cronies in return for $35,000 in kickbacks.

    THE MEDIA'S HEADLINE: Family Day Erupts into Violence at National Zoo in Washington; THE TRUTHFUL HEADLINE: African-American Family Day Erupting into Violence at WASHINGTON DC National Zoo


    Two people were shot and injured near an entrance to the National Zoo in Washington, D.C., police confirmed Monday. 
    One victim was injured in the arm, the other in the hand, police said. Both have non-life threatening injuries. Police said around 5:17 p.m., a male was shot in the 3000 block of Connecticut Avenue, N.W., across the street from the zoo. 
    According to the Washington Post, there was no indication that the shooting involved the zoo or its visitors. Police confirmed that the incident happened outside the zoo. The National Zoo closed after the incident. 
    Each year on Easter Monday, families are welcomed to the National Zoo for family-focused activities and Easter entertainment, according to the National Zoo's website. There is a history of some violence at this family event at the zoo that the police say they are aware of. 
    "We were not expecting (a shooting) but we had a heavy police presence up here," said Commander Michael Reese of the Metropolitan Police Department. "This is a very festive event. 
    Numerous times nothing happened up here, but it was very important for us to show a force, and that's what we did." 
    Three years ago on Easter Monday, a teen was stabbed multiple times. Shots were fired about an hour after thousands were at the zoo to celebrate African American Family Day and Easter Monday.
