12 Year Old Shot

  • A 12-year-old boy was shot in the chest in Chicago's Gage Park neighborhood.

    His family said he was playing in the street in front of his father's home near West 54th Street and South Sacramento Avenue Thursday night. Police said around 9 p.m., a gunman pulled up, opened fire and then drove off.

    A neighbor who did not want to be identified says the boy was shot because he didn't throw up a gang sign.
  • The five boys were taking advantage of the mild night Thursday and playing tag on their Gage Park block when a red SUV pulled up.

    "Raise the crown," someone inside yelled, meaning give the gang sign for the Latin Kings, according to one of the boys in the group.

    A 12-year-old froze. A shot went off and the boy collapsed on a metal grate as the SUV sped off, according to police and neighbors. The boy was hit in the chest and taken in critical condition to Mount Sinai Hospital.
And this makes perfect sense in what world? Presenting hand-signals for a group of misfits who provide exactly nothing to civilized society when they aren't thrown by a child, who was doing what kids his age should be doing - playing tag in the twilight?

How many bodies are the Latin Kings historically responsible for in Chicago? Fuck those evil cocksuckers. But, alas, our hands are tied.

Will this be a two day story? Pushed out of the headlines by Bernie, Hillary , and Donald Trump?

It should make National News, but the racist liberal news editors just don't give a hang about black children.
Make him a blond haired, blue eyed girl, and it would be 24/7/all day reportage. CNN Fox, MSNBC, WGN.
He is just another black kid killed senselesly in the ghetto.
And there will be another next month, and 2-3 every Summer month.

The law of the jungle, if you are not for us, you are against us. Even if you are only 12 years old. ISIS works the same way.

And what will the response of his four friends be ? Will there be four fathers in their lives to intervene and convince them not to join up with a rival gang for revenge ? We can fret about cease-fire programs and economic disadvantages etc.. But the first line of defense for children in that position is a strong father.

But the ACLU says we should respect the rights of these shooters and identify ourselves and give them our personal identifiers when stopping them (even though it is on our shirts and stars already). The ACLU believes the racist police stop people for the sheer joy of it, maybe even because we hate minorities. Yeah! That's it. The police hate young black and brown men and enjoy "hassling" them.

Maybe if the killers in the SUV had been hassled that young man would be alive today. Maybe we have to "hassle" some elements of society so others can be safe. Maybe we aren't racist, maybe we are trying to help those neighborhoods. Maybe, just maybe.......

Agree, Agree, Agree. But don't agree that 9pm in the dark (twilight is over by 6-ish in February) is an appropriate time for a 12-year-old to be outside. In any neighborhood, much less a dicey one.

Gang members present a clear and present danger to all productive and honest members of society in this country.

There is a violent conflict taking place citywide between the 26 and Kings. Yes, they're always in conflict but it is especially violent this year in: 008, 009, 010.

The city leaders should be calling for all of these sub-human gangbangers to be captured and sent to prison for a very long time. Build more prisons if needed. They are nothing more than urban terrorists and have been terrorizing the citizens of our Cities for far to long. When will the so called leaders pull their heads out of there a$$ and make the cities livable again?

Curfew is 10 pm in Chicago and this is the child's neighborhood--the kid did no wrong. The boy is quoted as saying, 'Freddie, please help me. Please get some help. Don't tell me this is happening.' Any of us with kids and grandkids is gut-punched. The hyenas have taken over the streets and the protectors of the children, the elderly, the victimized, our police, are the bad guys? Crazy world, crazy times.

I'm not saying anyone should be shot for throwing or not throwing a sign - but hey - that 12 yr old should have been IN THE HOUSE, brushing his teeth, and climbing into bed at 9PM after having done his homework - not outside "playing tag".

Well superintendent Escalante you have years of experience on the CPD. No doubt you know all the resources at your disposal because you have been a ceaseless crime fighter and know how to combat crime. This is incident calls out as do many others under your watch for you to step up. What's that, you have to go and spar a few officers for not wearing their hats first. Well maybe after that then.

Maybe more people should run for political office because all the anti police, what else can we tax demcommies rats that are in office will stay there because the are unopposed. Even if you don't vote for them, they are still there!

Sorry, but the young man should be able to play on the streets in his neighborhood at any time, even after curfew.
The thugs are the problem, not the young victim, or his parents.

But the point is the system IS WORKING. You will notice the shooter was not harassed or bullied by racist cops, wasn't stopped and frisked, wasn't subject to being treated nastily. Nope, the ACLU and BLM aided by the big smilin', hypocrite, corrupt political class have driven a narrative that has resulted in thousands upon thousands of fetal cops across the country prevented from doing their jobs. So, the 12 year old kid drowning in his blood, pissing his pants in pain and fear and trying to scream for a mommy that can't protect him anymore, your life doesn't matter. Sorry kid, need the votes next cycle.

Another victim because of the anti police , Fergusson effect that have caused our Police to be on the defensive rather than aggressive against this criminal element that is running rampant in this city. Congratulations Black Lies Matter, congratulations ACLU, ditto Father Faker, Mayor 9 and a half, Cook County Board President " there are too many people of color in jail, Prepwincle and a special thanks Goes out the the worst President in American History for his comments and undisguised hatred of the Police and Mitary, president Obumer.
God help us.

Back in the day, seeing a car full of Latin Kings was an automatic stop and search of these violent little thugs. Now, that would be a violation of their rights.
ACLU, you have made us all less safe. My wish for you is that these LKs move in next to you in your cozy little burb. You would be praying for them to be stopped and searched. (oh, wait. Not true as most of you are probably atheists also.)

And if any parent/guardian in that hood chose to sit on the porch with a semi-auto rifle, ready to let 10-15 rounds in the car after something like that happened, how would they be portrayed? As a dedicated member of society, protecting its children and combating needless violence, or a criminal with an "unnecessarily deadly assault weapon"? When there's no fear of retaliation, of course shit like this will happen. The car full of Kings could have gotten out and smashed the kid's head with a brick and still drove away scot-free. Death is too light a punishment for inhuman scum like that.
