Mass Stupidity

  • One man was shot and another stabbed during a street brawl Sunday night. Will County Sheriff's police were called after shots were heard around 5:40 p.m. in the 0 to 100 block of Bradford Road.

    According to reports, investigators learned a group of teens had been arguing throughout the day after a boy reportedly threw a water balloon at a girl. The conflict escalated between friends and relatives of the two teens, leading to what witnesses described as "30 or 40 people fighting in the street."

    During the melee, Cornequa Bass , 20, reportedly used a switchblade she was carrying to stab a 16-year-old boy who was fighting with her brother in the back. "After being stabbed (the victim) kept fighting, unaware of his injury," police said. Moments later, two men took out handguns and fired several shots. A black man wearing a black baseball hat and pants fired one shot that struck a 19-year-old man in the leg. A black man wearing a white T-shirt, red baseball hat and blue jeans was also shooting, reports said.

Water balloons = Switchblades and guns?

God help us, we love this shit. We'd roll on calls like this all day just for the humor value.

Instead of banning guns, they should ban water baloons. That's where the trouble comes in. Just like Daley solved Chicago drug problem by banning little ziplock baggies.

"Altercation over water balloons" is the seventh most common motive for inner city homicides, just edging out the old turkey drumstick caper.

Confucius say never bring a water balloon to a knife fight or a knife to a gun fight, BUT ESPECIALLY, never bring a water balloon to a gun fight!

And always remember: rock, paper, scissors.

in the menu troubled buildings give addresses and inform them about the illegal basement apartment,the basement bathroom that was put in without a permit,how the basement has walls put up for several seprate bedrooms, you get what I am saying?
building inspectors do not need warrants and can not be denied access, the task force has a cop with them and while the cop is in there any illegal activity or guns, drugs etc. will be taken and people arrested, the owner will be ticketed because these inspectors are on a hunt for any little thing wrong and believe me just like a cop if they look hard enough they will find some sort of violation

Obviously Will county is not spending enough money on after-school programs, free lunches, free dinners, new parks, and "anger management" for the "youths" who feel the need to fight, stab and shoot each other.

Just another sad, pathetic example of "institutionalized racism" raising its ugly head again. This incident proves without a smidgen of doubt that "Plymouth rock landed on them" 400 years ago.

Where's that nitwit Liberal from Oak Park Susy Schultz to pen some sort of diatribe rationalizing away all these "poor youths" and their violent ways?

That's over in an area called "The Hill" on the east side of Joliet. Complete shithole, smaller version of Engelwood or Roseland (for comparison). Does it really surprise anybody. This would never happen in places like Naperville or New Lenox.

To the person who wrote off topic wanting to know the names of the owners of 10822 and 10819 S. Whipple. You can find out the owner's names by going to the Cook County Assessor's website and running a search by address. That will give you the property PIN. After you get the PIN you go to the Cook County Treasurer's website and run a query on "status of payment" and it will give you the owner's name and address. I did it myself but left the info at work. Two different owners. One lives in West Beverly and the other in I think Hickory Hills.

Off Topic - I commented a little earlier about going to the assessor and treasurer's websites to find the owner of a propery. For future checks you can and should also confirm that the owner is the same as the taxpayer by logging into the cook county recorder of deeds website. Sometimes people don't update the tax information and the former owner is listed as taxpayer. But mortgage companies ALWAYS file their lien on the property with the owner as "grantor" or the mortgage. To the prior posters question, the taxpayer and owner on Whipple are the same on both sites. I ran the query myself. Gives their names and addresses.

Shoot a couple of people in a neighborhood tavern -- .32 ACP FMJ through-and-throughs in non-critical parts, fortunately -- and then be spotted a week later right across the street from the joint, laughing and joking like you're invisible.

What? Huh? She stabbed him in thr back? The 16 year-old was fighting her brother's back? They were in back of the house?

Forget the shooting. The writer of this article should have been arrested by the Grammar Police.
