Six Shot at Memorial for Dead Chicago Gangbanger

Posted by on Jan 26, 2017 at 7:25 am

If President Trump needed any more ammunition to send in help for the beleaguered Chicago police, he couldn’t have scripted a better story than this madness. Anyone with a pulse knows what the problem is here except, of course, the people with their heads lodged firmly in their asses.

A mass shooting at a memorial in the Greater Grand Crossing neighborhood on the South Side left six people — including a 12-year-old girl — wounded Wednesday night, officials said.

About 8:15 p.m., officers responding to a calls of shots fired found the victims inside a restaurant in the 500 block of East 75th Street, according to Chicago Police.

A bullet grazed the girl’s head, and she was taken in good condition to Comer Children’s Hospital, according to police and fire officials.

A 16-year-old boy shot in the neck and a 20-year-old woman with wounds to the leg and buttocks were both taken in serious condition to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, authorities said.

A 20-year-old woman was shot in the leg and taken to Stroger Hospital along with a 43-year-old woman shot in the hand. They were in good condition. The sixth victim, a 17-year-old boy, later showed up in good condition at Jackson Park Hospital with an arm wound.

Another gang saw them on social media and came out and shot up the memorial,” said community activist Jedidiah Brown, who added that the mother of the person being memorialized was among those shot Wednesday. “No regard for life, they shot up anybody who was there.”

Some of the victims were inside the restaurant while others were outside when the shooting occurred, according to anti-violence activist Andrew Holmes.

Wow, the presence of an anti-violence activist didn’t prevent more violence? Imagine that.

The shooting occurred almost exactly 24 hours after President Donald Trump threatened to “send in the Feds” if Mayor Rahm Emanuel can’t stop the “carnage” on Chicago streets.

Doesn’t seem like such a wild-eyed idea now, huh?

On Tuesday night, Supt. Eddie Johnson said his department is “more than willing to work with the federal government to build on our partnerships” with the Justice Department, FBI, the Drug Enforcement Administration and others.

Just say the word and help would be on the way. Or you could join the “resistance” and watch your shithole city descend further into lawlessness. Seems like a simple choice, but no.

“For my communities, it would be an actual bloodbath,” said Ald. Toni Foulkes (16th), whose South Side ward includes crime-ridden Englewood.

Look at what happened during the Boston Marathon, the curfews. We don’t know what will happen. When African-Americans think about the National Guard, we think about the prejudices and things like that.”

What kind of psychobabble is that? There was a curfew a few days after the Boston Marathon in 2013 because of a terrorist attack, you idiot.

Ald. Ray Lopez (15th), whose ward includes gang-infested Brighton Park, called Trump’s threat to “send in the Feds” more of the same “political bluster” from the new president.

“The National Guard is using a hammer to kill a fly. We don’t need tanks rolling down Ashland Avenue. I don’t need tanks rolling down Archer Avenue,” Lopez said.

So I guess six people being shot at a memorial for a dead gangbanger is cool. Got it.

    Another democrat utopia city.
    Why does Rahmie the Commie get a pass for Chiraq being a gang warzone under his watch?
    Maybe midnight basketball or adding to the wheelbarrow of money spent on each student in the public school system will help Shitcago.

    Build a Berlin wall around the bad areas. Toss in most Chiraq politicians, arm them to the teeth, let them have their own ‘Little
    Bighorn’ event.

    It has nothing to do with being cool. It has everything to do with each level of government resolving issues pertaining to its responsibility. The feds have no business interfering in local crime enforcement.

    The black aldermen offered up the usual solution: give us $5 million for “programs” (and a free lease on a new Escalade).
    Are there no prisons? Are there no workhouses?

    And each of those who dies will have funerals where more people get shot, who will have funerals…

    A libertarian based show on a blowtorch station out of Chicago says that liberal judges let shooters out pretty much the next day and that it is a small amount of gangbangers who are doing all of the shooting.
