Puerto Rican Festival Coverage, Day #1

Good afternoon, everyone, it's 3pm. Sorry I've been gone for so long, but I've gotten so busy with school and some other obligations. I'm starting to really get all of these things out of the way, so I'll be able to start doing more coverage in the next few weeks as we come into the first days of summer. Today, I'm monitoring the Puerto Rican Festival. This is day #1 of the festivities. It runs through Sunday and it is centered in the Humboldt Park area. I'm monitoring the festival through midnight. I know a lot of you have been skeptical about me monitoring the festival in part years and may not approve of it, so that's why this year, I will be going down there on one of the days it is taking place for an hour or two. I will be going tomorrow and will be down there around 5:30pm until 7pm or so, and although I cannot promise I will be touring the entire area of the festival, I will try my very best to do so. I will be focusing my time down there on North and the streets immediately surrounding Humboldt Park. If there is not much violence that I observe, I'll be staying a bit longer, but if it gets really violent, I will be leaving immediately. For the festival, at least today, I will have special boundaries in effect. I'll be monitoring Beats 1211 and 1212 (Division to Chicago, Kedzie to Wood). Also, tomorrow, from noon to 5pm, I'll be covering all of the schools in the area for their last day of schools. I have to make up a schedule for what I'll be monitoring when, but there will be definitely be coverage. Coverage of the Puerto Rican Festival tomorrow will largely depend on the calls that come through tonight. Here's crime for this afternoon and evening.

3:14pm - Assault in progress. Haddon and Washtenaw. Group of five getting ready to fight on the corner.

3:39pm - 1) Battery report. St. Mary's Hospital. 2) DOA report. St. Mary's Hospital.
