Time to Dump the Fest
- An 18-year-old was fatally shot in the city's Humboldt Park neighborhood in what has been a violent weekend in the neighborhood despite festivals and parades.
"despite festivals and parades"??? Newsflash morons - the parade attracts the violence. It provides a nexus, a center, for all of the fools to come out and flash signs and strut around and pretty much make asses of themselves before the guns come out and wound anyone in the right place:
- The neighborhood has seen three shootings since Saturday, including a brazen daytime shooting and a slaying that claimed the life of a teen.
We recall the people who ran a certain south side ethnic parade cancelled it when the drinking, public intoxication and indecency was out of control. But this "festival with a body count" carries on as usual.
