"Going aboard. Much to get to let's get started. Alderman. Hopkins is joining us right now, Brian. How confirm the fighting Second ward in Chicago. A lot of things to discuss. I want to start right now. With what? We just heard in the news that Wisconsin is now on the If you go to Wisconsin, you've got to come back. And sit in your house for two weeks or whatever, wherever you have to be quarantined for two weeks. How effective is it gonna be Alderman? You know, I never thought I'd see this. Tommy Bartlett is rolling over in his grave right now. I'm not sure how effective it's going to be. You know, we're seeing the beaches in Michigan and Southwest. Um you are a star, plus Michigan and Indiana have been closed and people are still managing to get there. So we don't have any means to enforce this. I hope people take it seriously. I hope people see the symbolism behind it that we're making all these pronouncements. There's a reason behind it. There's a rationality behind it, and we can on ly hope people will voluntarily comply because we really have no means to force people to do this. You're in the heaviest. 56 weeks of travel between Wisconsin, Illinois, in terms of people going up for whatever vacationing A lot of Illinois ins have either friends, family or Houses up in Michigan. Whatever they have is to be, and that doesn't seem to be ending. I mean, I think you talk to people who are up there and they say, yet there's still a lot of guys they like to call the FBI bees were showing him across the border. Yeah, you know, restrictions on travel are really at the low end of necessary tactics that we need to do to prevent the spread Its restrictions on large gatherings. Doesn't matter if you got in the car and drove 100 miles or you drove one mile if your destination is a large gathering of people who are in close proximity to each other, especially indoors. That's the problem. It isn't how far you went to get to that gathering. So people on vacation obviously have a tendency to do fun things when they get there, You know if you go to a house in Wisconsin or a cabin or whatever, you're not going to sit there and isolate from, you know the weekend. You're gonna go out. You're going to go to places you're going, you know, Try to enjoy yourself on DH. That's where the risk of spread is occurring. How concerned are you for Chicago and Cook County writ large because that's where a lot of people are coming from going to Wisconsin coming back. Yeah, You know, we have. As you know, we've lagged behind from the other jurisdictions that I've seen increasing spread, and you know, we're still at positivity rate of a little over 3% right now. You know, the goal has always been to stay under five. And we're still there. So I guess that's the glass half full. But the glass half empty is it's ticking up consistently and gradually, and that is a harbinger of problems where we're gonna be three weeks from now. It's hard to say, but I don't have a good feeling right now. I really don't. I think we're heading for trouble. And the time to stop. It is now if you wait for all the lights to turn red. It's too late. Right now. They're yellow. And I think we need to act accordingly. OK, so that's the covert front. Now the violence front in Chicago We've been decrying this the entire summer there does that There is a sense of lawlessness in the streets and downtown is now getting it. Parts of your ward are being hit. And then ward the word just south of you. The downtown word just south of you. Shootings. Twice Now, in two consecutive weekends, one person murdered weekend to go on the bridge, the Wabash Bridge across the river, and now you had multiple shootings downtown. This weekend, including right here on Wacker, right and literally in front of our building here. We've got people like 2 30 in the morning, Thes hotel parties were taking place where hundreds of people are coming down, hanging out in hotels getting out in the streets. Some of them are armed. And next thing you know, the shooting starts. What is behind it? What have you heard from your police commanders? It is a direct relationship between the increased criminal activity downtown and the fact that police resources are tied up all over Chicago with protests. The protests are spontaneous, in some cases planned in other cases. But we've never seen such a widespread, consistent amount of protests that require some measure Police response so that ties up resource is and it leaves holes. You know, all throughout the city in downtown, especially, you know, we've seen recent incidents where if we had additional police resources that were available, they could have responded to some of the more You know, common street crime, muggings and Carjackings. These things have been happening. They have increased in recent months. There's no question about that. But we don't currently have adequate resources to respond to them over the weekend. The motorcycles that invaded downtown That was unprecedented. Those numbers. You know, we've seen groups of 200 even 300 motorcycles before. This was over 1000 motorcycles over a two day period and the police were tied up with dealing with protests. They just simply were outnumbered, outmanned and couldn't properly respond. Come right back, So I won't ask you where you stand on. The federal law informs of being here and also what do you do about it? What do you do when you've got both protests, and then people partying downtown, and then the partying turns violent. What do you do? How do you do Arrest people in advance? It's not really possible to do. We'll talk about all of that on the other side, But first Lauren, LAPD has got her eyes on the roads.

"WGN radio Chicago it is seven fifty nine we're going to join channel lines live coverage of the chaos that is taking place on the streets in downtown north State Street so this is the the violence and the destruction has spread out throughout the area has began at two o'clock in the afternoon and as you know these protests have been formed in protest to the death of George Floyd of Minneapolis the black bystander who was needed by a white police officer and died from that to there have been protests throughout the nation including Chicago it was relatively quiet from two PM to around six fifteen and then chaos erupted yeah Jackie last night we know that there were some demonstrations there were more than one hundred people arrested in fact so it is a situation that perhaps officials could have anticipated we can tell you that Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot is going to hold a news conference update us on the situation there she tweeted out that she will be with police at that news conference is coming from the office of emergency management manager could see the crowds there moving what a remarkable scene I. X. was in the south loop about forty five minutes ago and the Roosevelt collection malls were boarded up there were no demonstrators that far south there in the the loop there remaining in the area where they are tonight but you can see that there are other malls and places that have stores that have security that have barriers in place in anticipation that that crowd moves and perhaps attempts to loot stores across the city all right before apparently somebody is riding a horse they're on the road and it is not a police officer where exactly is this we're talking to the producer this is near St and grand and we get a wider view and you see the Chicago police officers in the blue helmets waiting they're trying to control the crowd I mean that that this is been what they've been doing all afternoon all evening we saw at one point that the crowd was trying to make its way onto lake shore drive and police shut down lake shore drive in both directions trying to control the crowd trying to keep them in an area where they are we saw over near trump tower earlier where there were police vehicles that were badly damaged officers got out of their vehicles a fact there's actually video online of well police vehicle being flipped on its side so it is a situation that started as a peaceful protest and unfortunately has devolved into something else you can see people throwing things at police officers as they are pushing forward we do have Jo Donlin on the phone he is in the area near Columbus in Illinois Joe where are you what do you see our nine and ten PM anchor is right down there yeah Jackie come on I just made it up on the upper Wacker right now not having dropped the Columbus bridge with the group that is on foot that left us virtually Michigan Avenue just about fifteen minutes ago on what they were he'll go up by police at the Wrigley building and it was a long line of state police Chicago police officers without allowing them to get on to the bridge not to they could go anywhere go south because the bridges up and that goes to the Wabash bridge as well but those folks so they could they could go north you know because we have the next block shut down as well so they started to head east toward Columbus and then they made their way up onto upper Wacker where they are now heading back down toward trump tower and Michigan Avenue again so that's where that group is heading right now I can tell you about five o'clock this afternoon this could start to heat up and police raised the bridges at Wabash and Michigan to try to deter poaching getting across because most of the protesters had made their way to trump tower dot points I never this standoff there there were protesters at that point it branched off it started making their way east and we're on upper Wacker that's how they did it actually get on Q. lake shore drive when they started heading north in the system some of the video you showed a short time ago so where we are right now it's not clear I'm not sure what this group is headed but a number of people I've been passing along what happened.

"Wow. Today was accidents backups. And what did you say clip it? Did you see a sinkhole on Hubbard street Hubbard? That's right over here. Scott Scott, Santa's on the political the cartoons to be on you. And I both heard that correctly. Yes. It's dark time seductive time, we go hop down in it right now, we want I don't want to it's Hubbard and what? Hobart between Clark and LaSalle. That's right over by here. We going to go to mother Hubbard's later. That's not too far from there. Yeah. Oh, dear. We're not gonna mother bottle and jumping the sinkhole. Oh my goodness today. I mean how much is sinking? It's it's been debated. Whether it's called the large pothole or. That surface area. Total the fluctuating number got a car. It's a sinkhole. Right. I mean, there are a lot of potholes around Chicago, which might qualify as well. This is like this seems like a mother pothole. Ooh. A mother pothole. I need to do segments called mother panel. Send us pictures of the biggest pothole even countered Irving park road is a disaster. You have to slalom down the street. I I had Mark decarlo in any Alvarez in my car and Mark turned his wife, and he goes pay attention. How patties deftly avoiding all those massive potholes. But there's a sinkhole. That's that's massive that seems significant different thing. Yeah. Like, it's got a gravitational pull almost. Yes. See these are the things that we worried about her demons emerging from a check every heard no word yet charge their judge down here. He yeah. Now, man, no. There was an article I saw about how they determine which streets to approach and and and decide whether or not. They're gonna fill the potholes say. And I don't know. I think you have to also contact your alderman's office. Call three one one and say, hey, you know, he'll make them come out and determine whether or not it is a sinkhole. I call it. It's a sinkhole on urban park road. Maybe they get there faster. Yeah. Right. Yeah. It's just branding. We'll be right. It's album branding. That's exactly what we were going to the airport. The other day, we're taking our dragging a little, you know, suitcase. We really things across Wabash bridge. Have you done this? Oh, you can lose a dog in this. Yeah. They gaps are the bridge tolls. What does it cost sidewalk is that still pothole? The big gaps of pavement holders holes in the pavement on the bridge. Yeah. So you can look down at the river. Not quite okay. Just just about it's an annoyance. Well, you know this bridge over here Columbus it goes. It turns into Fairbanks on the other side of the river. You can't walk on that bridge. At least I think previously. I think they repaved it. But it had it was great. So if you had any shoes at any sort of any he'll at all even men's dress shoes, you get caught in the greats going on downtown trucks. Get you. It's all booby-trap is all it'll be trapped. It's all all comes back to I have to say, it was fun hanging out with you again, the mincing rascals, of course, now available anywhere. You listen to podcasts hosted by John Williams. I got there late, and I have to tell you. Why? No, I was on time. I pull I got in front of this building at eleven o'clock. We have until see Bertrand wraps up his news when Steve is doing weather, then I know I'm late. That's when I know I I'm not gonna make at time. Right. So I pull into the parking lot where we all have a lot of us have parking passes. And I've struggled before because during the daytime it is significantly different than when I get here at night. And I pull a newest bought and I'm fine. There was there were not only were there. No spots. There were three other cars with all circling. We would there's not enough room you've been in that parking garage. There's not enough room to pass each other. Like a few weeks ago? I had to park in a part of this sort of walled off area of the parking garage. And I was in such a hurry. I didn't even keep track of where it was I had to get off at like four and five later find my way down a ramp and around a corner where they also store some of the party buses in this area. And I wasn't even sure if it was a legal spot, I just kind of left it there. Cross my fingers today. There was not even that was left and I had eventually I saw guy walked to his car. Do that trolling thing. You do use rural behind somebody going your car to car. Now. Are you going to? And that following car. And he he got this teeny know those like, what are they called the little micro car? Oh, no. And he was parked in a spot. That was not. I don't think it was actually a spot because it had pipes on one side, and you know, one of the pillars and it wasn't designated. There are no lines. But it didn't say no parking. So I got on my car, and I closed my the side mirrors. I folded them in. Yeah. I wedged myself this, and I and I was sweating too. I was like. You go to the door open. I had that was the thing to I had to get out of passenger side because I was able to put forward in front of the pillar. So there was there. Yeah. Always fun across the skylight. Why do I haven't? I don't have a rumor I don't have a member you'd know. He would think. I don't use. No use that. My mother has one in her pitiful accord, and I borrow her car all the time. That's us a nice. I mean, I can understand it like during the polar. Why would you not use us on roof for me? It's this. It's a hair blown all over the place. I don't know. I like sunroof Salah. I I don't have my car. But I like them a lot during the summer. But yes, you're right. If I have my hair done, then absolutely not that's going to be closed. Yeah. Exactly. Convertible for in Geneva hated it. I think that maybe it was a convertible. Now. So. All right now. I get what what I agree. Yeah. Within the charge could get you much easier. This is true. The seven zero eight says Kogyo is getting ready to celebrate sinkhole denial after this. Is.

"It would be great. If if that could get get we stop these sort of create a sort of continuous retail district, but I think that apart from apart from him, and and and maybe a couple of other retailers. I think the nature of the space and have separated is not a lot of landowners, developers shopowners seem to really know or care that the spaces empty, you know, we also spoke to Alan lives, who's the principal development group. Doug radio. I don't know if you walk down on Wabash next to Trump Tower. There is a new condo building that that just went up. It's just being finished now called Renault on the river, and we call them up, and I'll tell you concerned about this. So you have this condo tower. It's gone up right next to Trump Tower in your the residents in these condos will be you know, a stone's throw from this big. Empty space. Are they gonna miss that? Or are they gonna wonder? If anything is going to go there is, you know, are you concerned about it? And he basically said, no, no one really even knows that it's areas because it's so out of the way because you can't really see it sort of playing into the same reason why it's never been leased where they've had so much trouble. Finding. It's they're essentially because it's it's just, you know, unless you're on the other side of the river on the river watch. Or you know, you're on the Wabash bridge. You just can't really see the space and don't really notice it did Trump branding problems. These days have anything to do with this. Would it be any different had there not been the dings on his brands and his popularity? You know, that's really hard to say. It's it's an easy assumption to make I mean you hear you know, the residential condo brokers. Talk about how there's kind of a discount on the condo prices in the tower because of the band. And it's easy to think that that could apply to the retail heart as well. And you know, one of the. Amazing information we got in this tax appeal. They went through and the attorneys tax attorneys, representing the Trump organization went through each individual tenant that they spoke to you. And gave a reason why they passed was dozens of done dozens of potential users for that space and a lot of them just said, you know, not interested in Trump Tower looking trying to find somewhere else. So it's always been. Underlying, you know, understanding or assumption would be understandable. And the Trump could Trump land could have a a kind of stigma in a city where the guy got thirteen percent of the vote in the two thousand sixteen election. But you know, it's it's hard to say exactly how much that really sectors into it, Alex. We have about thirty seconds left. I want to ask real quickly. Is there any way to change? This. Is there any redesigned that might happen? Is there any rehab reconstruction that might be able to fix some of these problems? You know? It's a good question. I am not really sure honestly, it's possible that maybe the facade could be changed or it could be set back. I'm really not a construction experts. So I couldn't begin to imagine exactly how much how much how many changes could be made. I mean, it's really hard to believe that there's gigantic columns to be taken out of there. I mean since they seem to be carrying the load of eight ninety eight storey tower. And you got to believe that it's a lot harder to do a renovation. In a space like that at the base of such a huge structure. So I suppose it's possible. But it's just hard to imagine. What that would look like, Alex. So this is a great story. Thanks for sharing it with us this morning and getting up being on the ballot us. Thank you very much. Appreciate it. Alex.
