Police Board Meeting Mayhem
- A disruptive crowd angry over the fatal shooting of an 18-year-old man by a police officer prompted an abrupt adjournment Thursday night of a routine Chicago Police Board meeting.
About 15 minutes after starting, Board President Demetrius Carney adjourned the meeting when audience members started chanting "No justice, no peace!" and approached the nine-member panel.
After adjournment, board members and Interim Supt. Dana Starks left the meeting room at Chicago Police Headquarters through a side door. Rows of police officers lined up between board members and the crowd.
And the typical conspiracy theories abound:
- Community activist Queen Sister of the It Takes a Village organization told the board that the community suspects that police are planting on civilians the same guns turned in during gun buy-back programs.
And according to a sharp eyed commentator of ours:
- I just finished watching the 9:00 P.M. WGN News regarding the protesters at the Police Board meeting. The reporter then interviewed a protester. The protester was no other than Kenny Shannon. Yes, the same Kenny Shannon that is a top leader for the Conservative Vice Lords. Yes, the same Kenny Shannon who is responsible for at least 20 years of murder and mayhem on the westside. Nice!
We didn't see this coverage, but if Kenny Shannon, aka Kenny Shoulder, one of the top generals, if not the top guy in the conservative vice lords is being quoted and interviewed by the media, then the North Lawndale community has a major problem with credibility and questionable motivation. Has anyone else seen the Intelligence bulletin put out by Squad 60 outlining the conflict in 011 between the "lawndale crazies" and the various vice lord factions? If someone has the whole thing, it shows that the dead OFFENDER was an integral part of this criminal organization.
