You might already check out the award-winning site to see what's gone down in your neighborhood, but don't forget to check your commute. The CTA Tattler has a story of a knock 'em, sock 'em fight on a Blue Line train this week, and also points out the options of checking crimes on platforms, buses, garages, and trains.
