I saw your article and yes it carried East to the corner of Pearson and DeWitt last night at 7pm.
I phoned 911 as about 50 people gathered in the tennis courts in the park (Lake Shore Park) yelling and screaming and fighting.
An officer arrived in about 2 minutes and the group then sprinted East towards Lake Shore Drive. The officer pursued them on foot.
Several of us were in the park walking our dogs at the time this happened.
Fully agree the Mayor needs to wake up and give this more attention, especially since he was just here this past weekend in his black SUV walking around during the day.
I do not believe our police commissioner is any more effective than the prior one who was removed.
