Uptdate - ANOTHER Uptown Gang Fight, Sept 1st, 2pm

UPDATE/CORRECTION, SEPT. 5: Uptown "Gang Riot" Was Actually Minor Shooting Word in the street is that there was YET ANOTHER gang fight in Chicago's troubled Uptown neighborhood, said to have happened at 2:00 in the afternoon at W. Wilson and N. Broadway, a few yards from the CTA train overpass. We get this from a woman who was at the CAPS Beat 2311 meeting on Monday night (Sept. 1). Five hours after the gang disturbance, the 7:00 p.m. CAPS meeting took place at Truman College, less than 300 feet away from the reported rumble. The woman who told Chicago News Bench about the fight said that "a police captain" in the meeting acknowledged the fight, but would not discuss details with the meeting attendees. One has to wonder why not, and also why the superhuman anti-crime fighting efforts of 46th Ward Alderman Helen Shiller and her entire staff of expert crime fighters have not yet put a stop to the seemingly weekly gang battles in Uptown, despite their sworn implementation of Shiller's Secret Safety Strategy (SSSS). Looks like "positive loitering," the latest social networking craze for socially challenged Uptowners, is working about as well as SSSS is.
