In 1976 there was a mass shooting at Marvin Glass & Assoc. at 815 N. La Salle. There has been no mention of it with all the talk of shootings and gun control. My dad Jerry Pinsler, who worked there, just missed getting shot, the shooter killed himself in my dad's office. Fortuitously my dad had just stepped out of his office and went back to see all the carnage. (A number of people were killed and wounded.) He never slept well after that nor did he ever forget it.
Perhaps you could research it on Lexis Nexis and do some stories on it.
Neither he nor my mother are longer alive, but our family have always been big supporters of gun control. I live in Los Angeles and watch WGN on DirectTV and my sister still lives in Chicago.
Ciao for now,
Hello Robert. just a comment on your story on Sgt Roldan (correctional officer) not police officer. Just an f.y.i. Cook county correctional officers are not considered LAW ENFORCEMENT officers via their certification. Hence, this is why their badges state "correctional officer" not "police officer" Cook county correctional officers are one of very few counties in the state of illinois (if not the only) who do not certify their corrections as law enforcement officers. which is why, when they seek police employment, they are sent to a state law enforcement academy to be properly certified as LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER/POLICE OFFICER. Thanks.
I hope with God's help that Sgt. Roldan recovers from this major setback in his life. I will have him in my prayers and may God bless his entire family.
Hi. I live in Calif. now but I follow Chicago news. I could not access the story about the South Shore Drive Extension. In the 1950's I lived in one of the demolished homes on Mackinaw Ave. I hoped to see what it looks like now. At the least could you send me the text of your story? Thanks so much for helping me stay connected to my roots & the Chicago that I love.
dzien dobry bobus , chicago will be always dear to my heart .
