Somehing Matters Again....

  • Two people, including an 81-year-old woman, were shot in the city's Gresham neighborhood in what police say was a drive-by shooting.

    The victims were outside when a white SUV approached them around 5 p.m. Friday in the 7800-block of South Carpenter, police said, when someone inside the vehicle allegedly started shooting

    The woman, Iola Burress, suffered a gunshot wound to the wrist and stomach. Her 34-year-old grandson, Sylvester Burress, suffered a gunshot wound to the hip, police said. Both were hospitalized and are in stable condition.
This was at a wake for grandma's middle-aged daughter. We're betting she probably wasn't the target. But hey, let's go light up a wake...just in case.

A female witness was very offended that the shooters 'saw an old lady sitting on the stairs and they STILL shot, and that ain't right'.

Perfect logic. It's okay if you shoot, but we draw the line at the 81yr old woman.

78th & Carpenter...right behind St. Sabina and Father Pfleger. Thought it was an orderly neighborhood.

81yr old woman just lost her daughter, back from a wake, and she gets shot. Al, Jesse?!! Anything to say at all? When's the big protest? The marches? Any outrage? Just another day in the hood, I guess. Will spike put this in his movie? The "tell me again how black lives matter" comment is so over-used, but then they come up with another way to astonish us with their complete lack of morals, and we find ourselves using it, yet again.

When are the protests, the looting, the marches. Don't black live matter. Or did she forget to put her hands up and say don't shoot

I like their style.

That was better than having a blowout in front of a tire shop or a heart attack while visiting a friend in the ER.

And NO, black lives really don't matter. Not until a white policeman can be scapegoated and lynched for a justifiable shoot.

So I take it that they are going to get angry and upset because black lives matter? Something tells me that they won't.

Just a couple of blocks from the "anti violence" church run by Fr Faker. Perhaps he needs to get his nose out of Spike's a** and hit the streets.

A wake? The photo I saw they were all wearing white t-shirts with writing on the front, black pants/jeans and gym shoes.

Who goes to a wake looking like that?

No respect for the dead.

Apparently Momma didn't teach them how to dress appropriately for a wake. I'll bet the funeral is no different.

It's the little signs of respect that count.

After 30 years or so as acting protector and leader of this flock, I would have thought Father Pfleger would have rooted out such violence in this oasis of social justice and equality.

Seems the gun violence is a problem with African/Americans. Never hear of such shootings in Park Ridge or Niles.

I am a retired CPD Sgt., who now has a part-time job teaching at a Community College. Fortunately this Institution, because it is a Community College and not an "Elitist" institution of higher Brain Washing, allows me to be honest with my students. When this Hands Up, Don't Shoot nonsense and Black Lives Matter crap started I confronted my students with the facts and the question: "Black Lives Matter?" To Whom? I then showed the stats of how Blacks are the offenders in more than 90% of Black homicides. One of the first things I teach is: "I heard, They say, You know"; all means little in the Real World. Produce the facts. In the Media world of sound bites and political whores who lie, perception becomes reality and perception is manipulated. Stay safe my brothers and sisters, your task is a Vocation not a job. And a Vocation is a calling from God almighty."Baby G"

My guess is the person sitting next to her was the target he looks like a fine upstanding citizen. Chiraq!

When will the ghetto learn that the message of Black Lives Matter has to be taught to the black men in the ghetto. Not the police or any other persons.

This type of chaos thrives and will always thrive in neighborhoods with the DON'T SNITCH/SNITCHES GET STITCHES ethos.

Look how low it has lowered the bar here...."Oh an 81 year-old got shot ! That's messed up !" Well, those who don't co-operate with law enforcement don't deserve the protection of law enforcement .

White "folks"? You mean like the Caucasian Satan Disciples in the Ville? We don't claim them. I'm more of a Thorndale Jagoff type of white person.

Heard Garfield ridge is looking to do the same, now that it's divided up by Burke and o Shea madigans boys lets get taxes reduced to pay the off duty guys? Why no VRI overtime here? Because we love our police,pay taxes, respect officers! That would be the reason, they spend over 100 million for extra coppers everyday in areas where most hate police, don't want to be policed, want to sue the police and hurt officers hello wake up taxpayers!

Children,and elderly getting killed! Innocents being murdered, and yet no street protests? sharpton, flaky, jackson where are you at? Let us understand if a police officer in fear of his life or her life shoots a criminal thug massive protests, businesses destroyed, violence everywhere, but the innocent people on the street "black lives matter" your people and you don't bother? Hypocrites! Who pays you guys for appearances? Do you get cash from attorneys? the families? Do you also bring the mobs and pay them to cause violence?

Sharpton you owe how many millions in income tax and your invited to the white house not arrested,not indicted? tell us how "a man of God" you are hypocrits all of them!

Can some active and retired CPD give some suggestions what we regular Chicago citizens can do to contain, reduce this carnage?

What organizations can we, should we join?

I was very impressed by the Chicago Crime Commissions 2012 Gang Book and noted that (I respected) former CPD chief Jody Weiss was briefly the president of the Chicago Crime Commission, but he resigned after a very short time.

I tried to contact Chicago Crime Commission, but had a hard time finding a live person.

Is it still in operation?

There is no GOP law and order party here in Chicago, what do we do?

Left behind in Hyde Park
