Brilliant Decision Making

  • A dispute over a woman led to the killing of a West Side man in the lobby of the Hyatt Regency hotel at McCormick Place last weekend, prosecutors said Saturday.

    Armonte Hooper, 23, is charged with shooting Courtney Taylor during a birthday party Jan. 23 in the lobby of the hotel, 2233 S. King Drive. In Cook County bond court Saturday, Judge Laura Marie Sullivan ordered Hooper held with no bail.

    Prosecutors said Taylor, 25, and his friends had stayed at the birthday party for a short time before deciding to leave. Upon leaving, a male partygoer who Taylor didn't know approached Taylor and his friends and accused Taylor of hitting on his girlfriend.

    The man, whom Taylor did not know, was with Hooper — who along with his friends became verbally aggressive toward Taylor and his friends until a fight broke between both groups, prosecutors said.

    Hooper and his friends then left the hotel. When they returned, Hooper pulled a gun out of his waistband and pointed it at one of Taylor's friends. Taylor's friend ran and someone hit him over the head with a glass table top, prosecutors said.

    When Taylor ran to help his friend, Hooper shot Taylor, who fell to the ground. Hooper continued to fire at Taylor, shooting him five times, prosecutors said.
Makes perfect sense. And guess what he isn't going to have in County awaiting trial or downstate upon conviction? If you guessed "a girlfriend who is actually female," you're on the right track.

And after all of this, how many convention-goers are going to insist that their next event be held some place where this isn't happening?

And when he rides back into town, he can drop in on her, the 4 yr old, and the baby daddy, and start on his second tour. Another neurosurgeon down the rat hole...

Regarding the contretemps involving Messrs. Hooper and Taylor, one would think a more refined and civilized approach would apply. Winner-take-all badminton. Or cribbage. A vigorous arm-wrestling match perhaps!

It'd only be proper for the Tribune to post an image of the woman that was worth killing another human over. She must be the best looking doctoral candidate that's going to end world hunger and the water shortage you've ever seen.

51 murders in January. Yea, is was not cold and very little snow. 51 time 12. I was not in the ghoul pool but 700 should be a good guess for murders in 2016.

This and many more instances alike will to continue throughout the city. Everyone who fights for these shit heads rights don't have to live among them. We the law abiding, tax payers have to look over our collective shoulders when out with families.

"Hooper and his friends then left the hotel."

Oh, that would not have done at all.

"When they returned..."

Ah. Now! Here we go!

...and now this Armonte gets to spend the next fifty years shouting, braiding hair, and trading a package of noodles for a package of noodles.

Q. Will he even notice, or it is all pretty much the same anyway?

When will Rahm quit pandering to these people, picketing Michigan Ave. over Christmas, shooting at McCormick Place, the money is about to leave and it won't be coming back. Dry up the freebies and get rid of these scumbags. It's all about the money.

Why isn't the news media running the surveillance video of the murder all day? They ran the Van Dyke video about 500 times already!!
What matters again?

The shooter wasn't even the guy whose girlfriend was being hit on, just a buddy.

Black lives matter! Yes! I see it now! Now I understand! It' like saying dude that's bad, it really means that's swell. Or like you phat ho, which means i find you attractive and would like to have sexual intercourse with you. Kind of like driving a $80k car and pumping only a gallon of gas into it but only after purchasing a loose cigarette from a gentleman in front of the gas station. Also like pulling up in a nicely waxed Cadillac and using a link card to purchase 10 pounds of alaskan king crab legs. Maybe even like watching a neighbor getting shot/killed and refuse to be a witness and yet have the moral standard to blame the police for not being a 24 hour security guard. Same witness will feel sorry for that neighbor who got shot/killed because the whole community knows that getting shot by the police makes one famous and the city will pay out, but getting shot by rival gang member will only get their photo on t shirts. I understand.

A perfect example of who is committing the crimes and the "reasons" they commit them! Wake up folks, we are circling the drain and your tax dollars are supporting these folks. Maybe the increase in crime and mayhem is the change which Obama once spoke so hopefully about.

Every party needs a pooper, that's why we invited you, Amonte Hooper!

It has gotten to the point that even in mainstream establishments, one must size up the crowd and question whether it's prudent to be there or just safer to go elsewhere. Such a shame!
