Common Sense

Common Sense Ain’t Common… Not Everybody Got “Em


The Ball Game

To have an East Chicago Cop allegedly was driving around in his “rover” doing his “job”. He allegedly spot a house with the front open. Our East Chicago Cop goes inside the house, and he “eyeballs” a generator inside the house. The generator is chained to the wall, you feel me? East Chicago Cop gets back into his “rover” and takes off to return a sometimes later. This time around East Chicago Cop has a bolt cutter with him and proceeded to cut the chain. He exits the house with generator in tow.

The Common Sense Ain’t Common Part

Street had breakfast with the legendary James “Sonny” Peterson from the “Calumet Section” of East Chicago. “Sonny”, according to my contact, used to “breakfast” at truck stop on Burr Street exit on “94”. Street was able to meet him for breakfast one day, and it was “for the book”.
“Common Sense ain’t common… not everybody got ‘em,” Sonny told me as he paused for a cop coffee as we talked.
“Say that again, so Street won’t forget,” Street tried to be real with “Sonny”
“I said common sense ain’t common… not everybody got ‘em,” Sonny repeated himself.
“Wow,” Street talked aloud.

Back at the Ranch

East Chicago Cop takes the generator and puts it in hid rover and proceeds to East Chicago Parking Lot. Source alleged that East Chicago Cop then took the generator out of his rover, and after which he places the generator in personal vehicle. “In the cross-hair”, is how source close to the story described this particular East Chicago Cop’s predicament as of this writing.


There is a “political component” that involves former Mayor George Pabey of East Chicago and North Township Trustee Frank Mrvan. It’s obvious that the East Chicago cop didn’t have “common sense”. This was the “backstory” of this particular East Chicago that had made my ears like a good “canine”.

It Was On

And an East Chicago cop goes down “memory lane” with him at East Chicago Police Department and talked about an East Chicago Cop who got a “C.I.” pregnant, you feel me? Street knew what he was talking about, okay!
