Hey Look! Truth in Reporting

  • Two teenagers were charged with the murder of a 6-year-old girl in Little Village who was likely caught in the middle of a gang shooting, police said Sunday.

    Juan Barraza, 18, and a 16-year-old boy charged as an adult who police would not name, have been charged with murder and aggravated discharge of a firearm in the slaying of Aliyah Shell. Both teens are said to be affiliated with the Latin Kings street gang, police said.

But look what else they wrote:

  • Police described members of the family as gang affiliated. Police are investigating whether the suspects were gunning for members of a rival gang, the Two-Sixers.

And this is just shocking - not shocking that it occurred, shocking that the Tribune reported it:

  • As relatives and friends passed through the Springfield Avenue home, they walked past a lone pink stuffed bunny on the steps to the home. The Two Six gang uses a bunny with a bent ear as its symbol.

    Aliyah’s memorial pink bunny had one ear flopped down.
We assume the Tribune will be taking that portion of the report down shortly - they always have in the past. We also assume that Becky Schlikerman and Jeremy Gorner will be lectured by editors about reporting the actual truth - it's a big "no-no" in Chicago.

Too late -- saved the page already.

Really illustrates the severity of the gang psychosis.

The report I got was the male that was on the porch was a known 26 gang member. The father of the child is also a known 26 gang member. It they want to hang around with, associate with, reproduce with, etc known gang members then I don't feel one bit sorry for their loses. Sorry to say but I just feel that way. I do feel sorry for the kid. But the adults can KMA.

It's of their own doings.

It is sad because tomorrow I am sure they were going to turn their lives around and become doctors. The 16 year old probably wanted to join the army after he got his GED and then go to college and work in some war torn country helping innocent children. Its a tragedy...

Reminds me of when I went through the academy. They showed us a family picture. The grandma, son and two year old grandson throwing up the pitchfork. I should have known then and got out. Too late for me. That was 30 years ago. Does Garry understand why people are dying in the streets. It's the culture you need to stop funding it and making excuses for it. Then you need to start punishing it. Oh wait we got rid of the death penalty. I have an idea make the politicians, judges, lawyers live amongst these people. You would see a change I'm sure. And then I woke up.

How sad an innocent 6 year old girl pays the price for the folly of adults. Wonder if the Racoon will say anything about this poor baby being killed. Probably not. He is way too busy getting his Speed Camera bullshit up and running so he can help his connected pals make millions. Again this poor child was probably part of that 25% that the Racoon said was a waste of time. How many kids have been killed or hurt by speeding cars since last September Mr. Mayor? No one has asked this inept greedy bastard that question. If any child was hurt or killed the suckhole media would have it on the front page and all over the tv news. He knows the answer but our media is afraid to ask.

"Broken Windows" Crime Distraction Methodology

This is what McCarthy's " Broken Windows" Crime Distraction Propaganda looks like.

============

West Side Democrats rally for arrested legislator

^^^

In the parks, churches, bowling alleys and VFW halls of Illinois, candidates for president, state supreme court, state representative and every office in-between made their last-minute pitches before Tuesday’s primary elections.

Perhaps the most audacious plea came from West Side Democratic elected officials who urged voters to support an Illinois House member charged with bribery. It looks bad, they acknowledged, but it will prevent the seat from falling into the hands of Republicans.

The original story had an unidentified male on the porch with the girl, he was the target. Charge him somehow, a reasonable man should know membership in a criminal enterprise known for violence would knowingly put him and others around him in harms way from rivals, stretch it into some sort of manslaughte. Come on anita, you've stretched things before. Drop the hammer on these thugs.

OMG!!

After approving a parade permit for a group protesting the G-8 and NATO summits in Chicago, the city has denied an identical application by the same group seeking to move their parade one day later in the wake of the White House’s decision to move the G-8 conference.

...the city rejected the request, citing a lack of police officers as well as other security and logistics complications from the very summit the demonstrators are seeking to protest.

“The commissioner finds that there are not available at the time of the parade a sufficient number of on-duty police officers, or other city employees authorized to regulate traffic, to police and protect lawful participants in the parade and non-participants,” wrote Mike Simon, assistant commissioner of the Chicago Department of Transportation

Hey Chicago Media, If you are doing your job, why do you mention gang affiliation with neutrality? THEY are the problem. You, the citizens, and they mayor tolerate gangs and blame everyone else. Do your job and and label them as the enemy. Or is that too much to ask because its too easy to sympathize with the poor "honor student who made a mistake"

I get that morale sucks...and you don't want to 'contribute to revenue generation by writing tickets.'


Start to ANOV the phuck out of these pricks.

You pull them over for a rolling stop sign violation...do a darn 9 point safety check. Make sure they have Everything they have to have....and then cite everyone in the vehicle that doesn't have a seat belt on...Punish the shit out of the bangers. Convince them to move the fuck else by shear deliberate targeting.

I routinely patrol between Damen and California...and I know for a damn fact that 1 in 5 drivers over there don't have a DL for the 40 and 50 and 60k vehicles they are driving. And its probably 1 in 3 in Little Village over all.

Arrest and Impound and Background Check.


Hit these fuckers where it hurts....take their Rides and their Money Legally...and since they are gang members..you can legally Profile them and not get Sued.

That copper got too involved in what was happening outside the hospital.

Ordering those reporters off of hospital property should have been done by hospital security. That is what they get paid for.

Copper got too involved and then ordered reporters out of the street.

Who cares if they are in the street or not. Had he left them alone, we might be looking at a injured or dead reported that got run over.

If they are impeding traffic order them onto the side walk.

I know that that area has two different medians but who cares if they get run over.

Too bad the copper didn't just stick with "I am giving you a lawful order." Then cited the traffic issue instead of making himself look like a fool.

Wow, the bullshit he spews.

For the past 40 years when Little Village became a Hatfield/McCoy Hispanic battleground I would estimate that there's been well over 10,000 men, women and children shot. crippled or murdered for nothing more than gang rivalry.

Could'nt stop it when we had a much bigger more proactive and much less restricted police department.

But the solution is to bring in an arrogant know it all with no knowledge of Chicago to staighten out this mess with a undermanned, demoralized and overworked pissed off department.
Yea, that'll work.

Coppers are people too; they get upset, angry at scenes like shootings, bad accidents, etc. -- often angry that some poor guy's dead and they can't help him. Try to be calm and go along. Just don't want someone else getting hurt in a turbulent situation. You will always get your story OK in the end.
