3 Busted Burglarizing Jewish High School In West Rogers Park

CHICAGO (CBS) — Police have arrested two convicted felons and a teenage boy after catching them red-handed burglarizing the Ida Crown Jewish Academy in the West Rogers Park neighborhood.

Police say John Allen, 24; Dominick Wing, 19; and a 16-year-old boy, broke into the high school at 2828 W. Pratt Blvd. by breaking a window in the kitchen just after midnight Tuesday morning.

Both uniformed and tactical officers responded and saw the three inside the building, which was locked and closed. All three tried to run but officers were able to nab them after a brief chase, police said.

The three were targeting TVs and computers in the school and had broken into the academy’s computer lab, police said.

Allen, of the 1600 block of South Hamlin Avenue; Wing, of the 400 block of South Ridgeway Avenue; and the teenage boy were each charged with one felony count of burglary, police said.

Both Allen and Wing are convicted felons. The three are scheduled to appear in bond court later Tuesday.

    They just want to get them some reading, riting, rithmetic like the whitey

  • non

    W didn’t do it. The whitey man set us up.

    So, since this was a burglary of a Jewish school, will these blacks be charged with a hate crime?

    • Untouchable

      No that was not hate. They were showing love for their property.

    Honesty, when I read the headlines, West Rodgers Park Burglary , I knew I was going to able to make some negative Caucasian comments. I opened the article, saw the offenders picture and had write this apology.

    • The real Afro

      ASomeone using my name of Afro,

      I offer no apology, I made no such bigotry comments, in fact I was going to issue a good word of encouragement how nice it is to see these guys going back to school

    Hint, when you community has been hit with a 50% unemployment rate you will do whatever you have to do to get funds to buy the necessities of life, like food and warmth for their little brothers and sisters. This community is a prime target for Al Qaeda to recruit in. Think about that and they will pull the trigger!

    • Joe Patroni

      I don’t agree with you there. The Civil Rights Acts and Brown were 50 years ago. Nobody stops any minority or immigrant community or family from pulling together and buiyng a Super Eight, Dunkin Do-Nuts, gas station, or a taxi medallion, salon….etc. What I hate are the racist, bigoted comments or even the liberal sentimentality–“oh, you poor people.” Understand that the arsonist in Los Angeles was a white, German guy–Casey Antony, white.

        @Pamala E. I’m going to be straight forward with you, What precinct do you work for and what is your badge number? Provided you are a police officer, my attorney is working on those I P addresses as we speak. Like I said a Judge will here this case that I am bringing against you and your department. This isn’t about me it’s about you.

      • Pamala E.

        I can only conclude that by ‘racial’ you meant I was commenting on the statements, made on a prior thread, regarding race. Not sure of the ‘sounding racial part.’ And he is Officer Lewis.

      • Pamala E.

        Afro, I have nothing to prove to you or anyone. Nor anything to defend. Feel free to do whatever you like.

      • Afro

        No Pamala you see that’s like valuable or invaluable, happy or sad is merrily a state of mind. Fortunate and unfortunate is merrily how you look at it. Either way those things weigh nothing on a mind that is free.

      • Pamala E.

        Sad life, how unfortunate for you.

      • Afro

        Time is all I have, and there is nothing valuable about it as it is spent sitting in this chair everyday, thinking what will the ni gg ers do next.

      • Pamala E

        What?! Lol, you are clearly some kind of a nut. However, you are wasting valuable time in your investigation with all this talking. I want to ensure that you receive the full value of a lawyer and any other professional you hired for this big caper.

      • Afro

        ok lets make it simple then who are you working for and a judge will decide about your blog. other wise we are using I P Addresses

      • Pamala E.

        Nope, no need to lie. I agreed with the “you cannot reason with them” portion of the statement which I immediately reiterated in my response ‘you are so right I am surrendering this madness to them cause they just don’t get it”.”cause there is no reasoning with them”. I said nothing explicit, racist or sexual nor did I agree. Attribute that to the one who said it. Perhaps you meant false personation of a police officer is against the law. In either case that isn’t a concern.

      • Agfro

        I have the entire blog and Lyndia made 2 posts prior to your agreement with her and they were both derogatory comments about the white race the first one being of an explicit sexual nature so you are saying that is the one you agree with her on?

      • Afro

        false self representation of a police officer is against the law you know

      • Afro

        @Pamala E.

        You immediately agreed with the racial slurs issued by Blogger Lyndia in total commitment, don’t get all hypocritical and try to lie your ass out of it it’s right there in plain text.

      • Afro

        Supposedly Pamala E. is a police officer and former colleague of Mr. Lewis she sounds quite racial to me in this conversation.
        Pam, Pam, Pam, can’t you see that afro and some of the other idiots are plan stupid. Can’t you see that? I’m educated, own my own home, have an advance degree. I drive a nice car and I have a 401K. These people that you are attempting to have dialogue with are racist. You cannot reason with them. THEY ARE TRAILER TRASH. Therefore, talk about them. Remind them of how the killed off the Indians. (White man speaks with a fork tongue.) Remind them how they are hated the world over.

        Pamala E.
        Lyndia, you are so right I am surrendering this madness to them cause they just don’t get it. Ha! Ha! Perhaps they do need to be reminded of some historical truths about themselves. Cause there is no reasoning with them. Thanks for
        the reality check.

        Joe Patroni you have no idea what is taking place on the West and South sides of Chicago. The White middle class has been hit hard. I live in a majority white suburb. When I moved in 2005, during the day, the streets was devoid of parked cars. Since 2009 the streets are filled with cars all day because the people are not working. Look what just happened in Melrose Park with the closing of Helen Curtis. The problem is caused by the exporting jobs to China and soon your community will be hit even harder! We know how to survive with less!

      • Pamala E.

        I agree that, at the very least, attaining a skill that makes one employable is within the grasp of most. But the extreme positions of either bigotry or that of apologist, offering excuses, represented here are tough to read.

  • gary

    Leroy, sorry I don’t buy it. The reason the cars are parked is because people don’t want to take a lower paying job than the one they had. Work at “that job?!”, that’s too humiliating for me…. Quit your sobbing and get rid of your “Oh, poor me!” attitude and find a job! Any job will do for a start, then move on to a better one…

  • Afro

    It was very nice of these upperclassmen to return to school as teachers to teach the younger one on the how to break in class.

  • THE ONE AND ONLY Leroy Goldberg

    I say just shoot the 3 little monkeys and be done with it.


  • Untold Truth

    THE ONE AND ONLY Leroy Goldberg, you should go to their their next hearing, bail them out, and then whip their Axx, it will be worth your money and prove your point.

    • THE ONE AND ONLY Leroy Goldberg

      Dead is better.

    @’fro and Pam E. – Pam so you’re a cop?? Really?? I’m SURE you got hired simply on merit and it had nothing to do at all with you being a black female!! Give me a break !!!! Once again, I STATE FACTS!!! Shall we debate that also??

    • Pamala E.

      We don’t have to debate it at all. I test really well, I scored 110/120, which put me in the highly qualified category and with my college degree I didn’t need any special consideration. I just met the requirements.

      Dinner awaits. Bye.

      • Alabaster White

        Pamala E. Highly qualified and a college degree?? How very white of you.

      • Afro

        From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

        A means test is a determination of whether an individual or family is eligible for help from the government.

        This test don’t count Pamala but I’m glad you done so well on it

      • THEE Yard Ape

        If you are the educated black female officer that you claim you are, why would you agree with Lyndia and make the comments that you made?? Strange. Something stinks around here and it’s not just Lyndia.

    • Afro
