Thanks For Not Shooting?

Can you imagine thanking a gang banger and wishing them a Merry Christmas for not shooting at you, your co-workers or your family? Or how about teaching your kid that these gangssters are worthy of any sort of respect, despite the fact that they traffic in poison, degrade the neighborhood and deal in death?

This woman is doing exactly that in Uptown:
  • I have lived in Uptown since the mid eighties. It is different now. Back then it was a bonified ghetto, with burnt out buildings, drunks to step over on the sidewalk and children of drug addicts playing on the streets in rags. Over the years it has changed. Like much of the North side of Chicago it has been gentrified. Starbucks and Borders, condos and a Target. Only there are still gangs.

    [...] The Black P Stones are a few blocks away on Magnolia, and they battle the Uptown Vice Lords who live on our street. In the summer the Vice Lords hang out near our building, behind the school. I hate that they are selling drugs, I hate that their leaders send younger members like so much cannon fodder to kill one another. Lives ruined, mothers crying for dead children. Gangs are easy to hate. It is easy to see the insanity of what they do.

But this woman isn't hating them. She's teaching her kid to respect them:

  • In the summer my family walks to where the P Stones hang, a park across the street from Starbucks that has a big water fountain. They are there with their families. The dads play basketball and the kids play with my kids in the water. The adults get a kick out of Jude, my big autistic son flapping and laughing in the water, and Eden, my eight year old, runs around with the other kids. Once one of the men made a joke about Eden’s bright red hair, and he scowled at the group of men, not wanting to be singled out.

    I brought Eden over and had him apologize. These members of the P Stone nation were incredulous, this lady making her kid apologize to them. “Just trying to teach him to be respectful,” I explained. Not because they were P Stones, or because this was their park. Because they were humans, people, who God loves and have mothers and children and matter. How am I going to teach my son that the homeless man on the corner matters if I deny the humanity of someone in a white tshirt? I didn’t say that. Mr. P Stone smiled at me, and nodded respect to my husband.

Respect? Highly doubtful unless your husband was packing a pistol or a something. And then she's thanking them for not shooting her husband, even though they just shot at least one person on her block:

  • Uptown is my home, just like the guy with the white tshirt at the park. Just like him I have sin, and a mother who loves me, and I need some direction, somehow to make sense of this sinful, broken world. Merry Christmas, Mr. P Stone. Thanks for not shooting my husband, and try to stay safe. Hope to see you next summer at the park. God loves you, and I am guessing your mother does, too. Take care.
We realize some people hold out faith in the general goodness of mankind and all, but the naivety on display here is just a-fucking-mazing. Man is an animal - a thinking animal - and will exploit other men to that end 999 times out of 1,000. Thanking a gang banger for destroying your neighborhood, shooting bystanders, poisoning the neighbor's kids, burglarizing your home and robbing you of your hard-earned material possessions? Darwin awaits.

Yeah, you see this in many areas, nice new Walgreens, etc. at 72/Jeffrey where 3 more people just got shot.

They somehow think that changing the backdrops will change the actors. Don't work.

There should be no surprise of the gang members being respected.

By the city politicians, and your bosses giving them a platform from which to speak, by the political apparatus giving them deals and like making sure the pod cams that look over them are broken and remain broken we know through the broken windows crime methodology that these gang members are leaders of the community -- that the politicians look up to. If you need something done in your hood go see your local gang member and have them get in touch with your alderman or local state lawmakers.

Why should it be a surprise? They have "professional courtesy"

The kicker is that she "hopes to see him there again next year." I'm sure you will, or one just like him. The thing is that you or a member of your family may not be there next year thanks to a stray bullet or some other violent crime that you are a victim of. The "adult" piece of human waste makes fun of your child's hair and you make your child apologize to him? I wonder if she teaches her children to respect Police Officers or does she teach them that the Police are bad people who do bad things to innocent minorities? Enjoy your diversity...otherwise known as ghetto culture. What's that? You were robbed and beaten? Here's your report.

SCC: "Man is an animal - a thinking animal - and will exploit other men to that end 999 times out of 1,000."

Dear SCC: I tend to agree with you nearly 100% on most issues, but on this one, you lost me. Yes, man is a thinking animal, but you fail to mention than man is also the only animal with a Soul--an eternal spark of God within him or her--that lives forever. Man is NOT a dual being (body and mind), as you imply, but a triad: body, mind and Soul. When the divine impulses of the Soul are ignored, this is where the problem arises, because a body and mind without the spiritual impulse does indeed act like a God-less, selfish creature who will gladly take advantage of another at every opportunity.

For many people, especially gang bangers, they consciously choose to silence any impulse of goodness from their Soul, and thus, they
make one senseless, selfish, evil choice after another. These sins will be added to their karmic load, and one day, in this life or another, they will have to pay for every single sin, "to the utmost farthing," because it IS true that "as ye sow, so shall you surely reap."

Yes, gang bangers should not be "thanked" for not shooting us. They should be arrested, tried, and kept in prison for the
dangerous people they are, people who choose to engage in sin to the extent that they are not worthy of living in the same society with us. But please, SCC, do not refer to the rest of us also, as "thinking animals" who would likely take advantage of our fellow human beings 999 times out of a thousand. That rule applies to those who choose to ignore their Conscience (the Voice of the Soul), and certainly not to many good people who read your blog every day.

SCC, your label, "un-fucking-believable", is more than appropriate. Talking about Stockholm Syndrome . . . or something, this poor woman has apparently lost touch with reality. I would be willing to wager, regardless of her emotional statements about others this POS or his crew might have harmed, along with her "appreciation" that he did not shoot her husband, if the situation were different and members of her family were actually violently assaulted or killed by some gangbangers, you know she wouldn't be spouting this crap. I pity this lady. While I, as many of us, believe in redemption, forgiveness, and the love and power of God, this example of over the top "guilt" is sickening. Fear sometimes tends to bring out unexpected and even irrational behavior in some people.

I'm a believing Christian, but I do not see anywhere in Christian thought where being naive is equated with being kind. These people forget that with mercy also comes judgement. Well, let's see how loving and forgiving she is if, God forbid, that violence strikes home personally.

Instead of being the authentic good Christian and taking these gang bangers to task, she is only enabling them.

She is doing nothing to end the problems in that little part of Chicago.

By the way, some of these shitheads decide to operate in that section of Chicago because there are so many "Rebeccas" out there who naively protect them base from the police based on their ignorance of how bad these people are. These "Rebeccas" are clueless!

At the root of a lot of liberal delusion is a pathological need to be loved and accepted.

One way they accomplish this is to make themselves the 'well meaning' ethnic outlier in sociologically awkward situations, so, yes... You will encounter flaming leftists walking up to gang bangers and for no reason, out of the blue, bringing them bags of McDonalds. The narrative they build up in their minds is that they're doing this on the basis of common humanity, on 'reaching out' but really, it's just their own personal need for validation that can be much more easily achieved in circumstances like being a well meaning white teacher in an abysmal ghetto school...

Of course, they eventually learn the hard way but in the meantime, ujntil the inevitable occurs, they can hold out hope that their Pollyannaish ideals on life aren't utter bullshit.

"Instead of being the authentic good Christian and taking these gang bangers to task"? Now I'm not for letting them off the hook and saying oh he's really a good boy deep down inside but what are you talking about? The cornerstone of the Christian faith is forgiveness. That's what the cross is about. The Bible even links your own forgiveness with your forgiveness of others. Now you don't have to believe it but you should hold up on running off at the mouth on your Christian faith but not mentioning anything that seems remotely close to the doctrine. There are some hardcharging coppers and servicemembers that love God and are the real deal Christians and while it's a tough line to walk...they're out there. It don't appear that you're one of them based on your comments but that's your choice not mine.

This is enough. I'm done. If you officers on the street want to be respected by the normal people that are trying to live their lives in spite of the scumbags mentioned in the story you have to grow some big balls and get to work.

You need to distance yourself from the COs that embrace the gang assholes. Not through the union with press releases that are USELESS to people like me but publicly. Some are going to take a hit but we want to know you're not on the side of scum like your so called commanders. If they want to legitimize the gang assholes then without speaking out against it YOU are too. If that happens why would I help you with anything? For all I know you're the one in the back pocket of Pepe or Tyrone down the street. After all, they're a legit force in the city being shows respect but those other "respectable people.

If you want to show us GOOD citizens that enjoy the protection you afford us and gladly help when something worthwhile happens (e.g. NOT some gangbanger ass getting what he deserved) get the balls to show us you're on our side.

As it stands all we see is the department becoming a joke and a pawn of the gangs and not a resource for the people trying to live a normal life in this declining city.

The writer of that piece is a longtime member of Jesus People USA.

JPUSA is an "Intentional Community" of generally left of center hippie, dippie, zippie leanings. Sorry, as I paraphrase George Carlin.

They live together in essentially a vertical commune on Wilson. They call it the "Friendly Tower". Their male members are generally easy to spot because of their hirsute appearance and vacant looks.

Like true believers of any variety, left or right, they are self righteous and a general pain in the ass. Just their name says it all. They are the "Jesus People".

Which means the rest of us are by definition the "Non-Jesus" People. I personally am the lapsed Catholic with a bad moon rising type of "people".

JPUSA owns a variety of local businesses, yet structures their profits and pay in such a way that their members have to seek medical and dental care at free clinics or the public dime.

They have been deeply involved in local politics during their tenure in Uptown.

Here are some pics I took of two of their buildings on Wilson just before the 2007 election.

Currently, in between saving souls and seeking free health care, some members of JPUSA have been posting on the Uptown Update Facebook page and blog. They generally suggest the former alderman, Shiller, was much better than the current alderman, Cappleman. It's almost as if the recent shootings in Uptown are a unique phenomena in our recent history.

JPUSA supported opponents to Cappleman in the last elections.

Those of you who want to annoy yourselves can google "JPUSA" for some stories out there. The Tribune did a series some years back on our wacky friends on Wilson.

Perhaps some of the cops who work this district can share some stories about the "Cornerstone" Shelter JPUSA runs on "Blood Alley".

I'm just a civilian who lives nearby and loves to annoy my JPUSA betters. After all, they are the "Jesus People". I'm just the "Guinness Guy".

Take care guys, stay safe and dare I say "God Bless".

This women has truly lost her fucking mind. She has detached herself from reality. I read that blog entry last night and there are others fools in the comment section who have been overtaken with white guilt praising her.

Further in the article she says while in the back yard a jettisoned "juice box" flys in over her back yard fence from the alley and hits her kid in the head. She then storms out into the alley to find a group of stones and confronts them about the juice box, they deny doing it but then promise to find the culprit. This dumb fuck refuses the offer because the thought of the men beating up an 8 yr old scared her. She then walks away and hears the gangsters admiring her courage and tattoos. What the fuck?

This is what happens when you grow up in the suburbs and you to move to the city when you became a big boy/girl because you want to tell everyone how edgy you are. These people are fucking stupid. Thank god they are drawn to shitholes like uptown away from me.

Maybe stand silently by and watch one of the cops who has given so much to their job, to the city, lay there on life support, just long enough so the family can make funeral arraigments. To try your best to hold a newlywed widow up because she can barely breath from crying so much, watching her spouse just slip away....

Maybe you can be more thankful and ask that "good" gangbanger to sell you some rock... because I believe that you need something to bring you back to reality and wakeup...

The Magnolia crowd is the strangest in Uptown, which is saying something. They call the police for any little interaction they see between the Stones, any loud noise, but when they see or are the victim of something bonified they think about it for twenty minutes before calling the police. They engage in positive loitering, but never acknowledge us when we are on a stop, never wave or offer us a drink when we are cruising around. Its totally bizzare. There are people out there exactly like this woman. I can remember a few of the Stones saying they were banging a couple of the yuppie moms on the block, how credible that was who knows, but nothing surprises me anymore. I don't know if Uptown attracts crazy people or makes them crazy, or both but it is a very weird place. About 2/3 of the 4400-4600 blk of Magnolia is condo, and I have seen as many as 28 condos for sale at one time. These people are stuck. I can understand that for some of these people confrontation is not an option, but appeasement is totally unfucking believable.

"The cornerstone of the Christian faith is forgiveness. That's what the cross is about."


no, that's not what the cross is about.


"The Bible even links your own forgiveness with your forgiveness of others."


no, it doesn't.



"Now you don't have to believe it but you should hold up on running off at the mouth on your Christian faith but not mentioning anything that seems remotely close to the doctrine."


heed your own advice.


"There are some hardcharging coppers and servicemembers that love God and are the real deal Christians and while it's a tough line to walk...they're out there."


how would you know?



"It don't appear that you're one of them based on your comments but that's your choice not mine."


appearances can be deceiving, as you so effectively demonstrate.

These white liberals don't understand that the savage does not appreciate nor care about your feelings about them. They will take all that you give them. They will let you treat them like victims because it is part of the game. But in the end, Mr and Mrs liberal, all the savage has for you is contempt. This particular liberal happens to live near the savage, unlike most savage huggers. It will only serve to reinforce what we already know, that she will become a victim to these animals soon. And I will feel no pity for this fool.

Oh, yeah, that forest of different signs outside the building gets real embarassing. Sometimes the realtors quietly agree among themselves to take their signs down and try to sell discreetly through MLRS, something not so disaster-like.

...but stuck the motherf__ers are.

Watchoo gonna sell in a 1960 ten-flat cash cow with six or seven different signs in the lawn? Sewage running down the walls? Roof cavin' in? What is going on in there?

You don't wanna know.

Uptown for anyone that knew the area before is completely different. Used to be a million times worse! The dope spots are getting squeezed smaller and smaller, so the competition is of course getting much greater. So as long as the shit heads keep shooting each other and not any innocent citizens, then who cares! Let them keep knocking each other off one by one. Saves the tax payers from supporting them. Plus, I have to admit that their aim of who they are shooting is much better than other areas of the city. Not like the west side or south side where you keep hearing about some innocent kid sleeping that gets struck through the window.

"Uptown is my home, just like the guy with the white tshirt at the park. Just like him I have sin..."

"Just like him?"

Oh, really?

What neighborhoods did you destroy?

Who did you kill, just banging a gun off into the dark at random?

Etc.

This HAS to be written by one of those cult members.

Talk about "brainwashed."

In the Uptown blog, the Christian Liberal mom is confusing Christianity with Liberalism and "the disease to please everyone".

"Nobody" is objecting to the mom teaching forgiveness.

"Everyone" is objecting to the mom forcing her son to apologize for other people's misdeeds

As shown in the Uptown blog, the son was already respectful, because he didn't belong to a gang, throw juice boxes or make hair jokes.

The mother should apologize to her son, for making him apologize for things he didn't do.

Why don't they offer to name streets after them? Maybe that'll work.
