Why Are Shootings Up?
Maybe it's because of assholes like these running loose?
Three men have been charged after police say one of them pointed a gun at an officer who then shot at him early today in the South Shore neighborhood early this morning.
When the officers went up to the car, they saw Lipsey, who was of the passengers in the car, put something under one of the car seats, according to the statement.
Davis, another one of the passengers, then got out of the car and pulled a gun out of his waistband. One of the officers told Davis to drop the weapon, and when he did not, the officer fired a shot toward Davis, who was not hit, according to police.
Police found two guns, and all three men were arrested at the scene, according to police.
We're sure these three were sitting in their car at 12:25 AM following a rough day at Children's Memorial Hospital saving babies and then standing on their feet for a few extra hours ladling out soup at the Salvation Army right before starting the graveyard shift at the University of Chicago atom-splitting project, but those damn police have to keep up their quota of shooting ghetto dwellers you know.
Anyone have look at these guys' records?
