Irony is Heavy Here

  • Damond Dawson was "goofing around" with his brother and other relatives and friends, rapping and shooting video in Foster Park when two gunmen opened fire early Tuesday, killing Dawson and wounding four others, according to police and relatives.

    “Basically like an ambush," said Dawson's aunt, Angela Mathis-Tate, 44. “One coming west of the park and one coming south."

    The shooting happened around 2:20 a.m. as Dawson, 23, and a small group were “rapping around (taking) selfies with their phones” at Foster Park at 1440 W. 84th St., according to relatives.
So where was the Park Car? Aren't parks closed at that time?
  • “They were very close,” Mathis-Tate said. “It was like they were all brothers. They just hung out together, go to parties together, go to clubs.”
And maybe had jobs together? Car-pooled to work? Maybe after graduating college at the same time? Or trade school?
  • Some witnesses said the group was staging a party scene for a video titled “Two Tecs and a 50 Shot,” but Mathis-Tate said they were just having some fun in the park.

    “He was really, you know, just goofing around, playing like he could rap a little bit,” she said. “He wasn’t no rapper. He was a newcomer just trying to say some lyrics.” He sometimes went by the name “Thugga,” according to family and friends.
Golly, a rap piece titled "Two Tecs and a 50 Shot." Whatever could that mean? Tecs? Maybe video technicians? Or technical drawings like blueprints or schematics for a new heart/lung machine? Are we getting close? "50 Shot"? Like a really big novelty bottle of scotch? Or something else? And a nickname like "Thugga." No idea what that could mean....maybe one of our readers could clue us in?
  • “People out here (are) just shooting people, other kids, for no reason,” she said. “It doesn’t mean anything to them but ‘oh yeah, let’s get this person.’ … They don’t have no concern for life anymore.”
Those damn police, not a concern in the world. You know what this place needs? Another march or something.

What's really heartbreaking is the two girls shot. Khlo'e Chatman, 2 years old, took a bullet in the head, it looks like she'll make it. Shamiya Adams also took a bullet to the head while doing the things 11 year olds do, she's going to be buried.

from a citizen troll: He and his homies were out tripping in the park at 02:20 and the park homies who claim Foster Park got wind of it and took them out. To think they were merely out there "filming a rap video" as reported on the news and as I first believed until I came here is bullshit. It is as much bullshit as black lives matter. They most assuredly DO NOT; life is cheap in Foster Park and the city where Foster Park is located. Once you understand that, this all makes more sense. It is simply the result of liberal social policies that have bankrupted a segement of our society to the detriment of our entire society. It seemed even the aunt was fatalistic about the matter, like oh well thats the way it goes. Incredible. And that is the way more and more of us are becoming, oh well.

Ironically, Obama just hosted a minority youth empowerment meeting at the White House in which many invited guests were gangster rappers who glorify gang violence, drug trafficking, misogynism, and thug life.

Not a cop but I visit the site to read news that the major media outlets refuse to cover and to gain another perspective. I learned about wildings, the thefts, attacks. Very enlightening. Each day living in this city you think you have seen it all. As a kid we used to go to Foster Park and play basketball, the facility itself is just great. But the gangs and a word I want to use have ruined it for everyone. Do you realize now on the weekends and after school that entire park is fucking empty? The gangs have chased everyone away. But the mamas will protect their sons until they are shot dead. And the politicians placate to these assholes by thinking even though they shoot up a park there is hope. Once a pitbull tastes blood we have it put down. This is no different. Sorry if someone gets offended but this is bullshit. We need a leader to think outside the box, enforce the current laws and just begin locking these ignorant wastes of flesh up.

Before deciding on if I should make an effort to follow my dream of being a rapper and choreographer I decided to watch my first rap video. It was crappy, painful and pretty much sucked. According to the comments I received on SCC I think I got a real shot!

The first order of business was to come up with a name. I have deduced that the yute of today desire some sort of double in the name. LL Cool J, Snoop Doggy Dog, Marky Mark. They also have an affinity to frozen water. Ice T, Vanilla Ice. The one thing I got off the video was the Yute seem to enjoy Horse Racing. Who knew? Round bottomed scantily clad women bending over with a dude slapping them on the rump. The Kentucky Derby came to mind. After considering all the aforementioned facts I came up with the name Double Bourbon On The Rocks. I think it's a can't miss. You can't rush into these things without doing some research. My first idea was Sherlock Homey. That would have been a big miss.

The round bottomed girls are everywhere. The dudes willing to slap those plump, scantily clad rumps will not be hard to find.I have the crotch grabbing down. I'm a natural if I do say so myself.The only thing missing is a short guy with a rat face that likes to dance to actually do the Polo.

Now I look at SCC after thinking I had it all figured out and I see another rapper has been shot. These rap critics are going too far don't you think?

Now like Polo was, I'm back on the fence trying to decide what to do.

Why the mayor should shut his mouth and listen to lawyers.

The lawsuit filed Wednesday alleges police had no justification to shoot Pierre Loury on April 11 and conspired with one another to give “false, misleading and incomplete versions” of the incident to make it look like they were in imminent danger.

The suit, brought by Loury’s mother, Tambrasha Hudson, also cites a report by Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s Police Accountability Task Force that found inherent racism in the department and an accountability system that is broken.

If the president had a son, the son would look like:

A. The perpetrator(s)
B. The decedent
C. The involved parties
D. All of the above

What is the official response from the takeover crew from the department of justice? After all, they are quick to judge law enforcement's actions whether real or perceived in light of out of control thuggas. We need those Georgetown lawyers living in the upscale DC suburbs to tell big city police how to deal with lawless thug-cultured individuals.

When Lawmen and Lawwomen attempt to enforce societal norms through laws and ordinances, thuggas are quick to point out their obvious appearance not their individual criminal choices. And the so called justice department and aclu are reactive and quick to take their side. Maybe some reporter can track down the takeover justification people from the kremlin in DC and then ask what the justice department is actually doing to stop the killing of aspiring rap artists. Will the aclu speak out, advocate and raise awareness on behalf of murder victims demanding justice for obvious civil rights violations on urban youth perpetrated by member of their own community?

The good middle class God fearing residents of this community should rise up and ask tough questions directed at the aclu and the justice department. Why are police always the scapegoats? What is their official on the record response to a violent rap hip hop culture complete with a disregard for civil and human rights? One could argue the justice department and the joined at the hip aclu approve finding this level of violence and murders acceptable. Why are any and all police actions making the community safer equated with civil rights violations and criminal behavior?

Then ask your so called elected officials about their police bias and condemnation of law enforcement codified by their actions in Springfield, the county boardroom and city hall. And their senseless rhetoric also. Why are elected officials so quick to blame police deflecting attention to their obvious non solutions to violence? What exactly are they doing besides bashing the police and encouraging more violence facilitating a murder conspiracy in Chicagoland? Hot sauce Hillary once hoarsely shrieked, "WHAT DIFFERENCE-AT THIS POINT,WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE".

So 23 year old Dawson is 'Goofing Around' in the park with his friends at 2:30 a.m. on a Tuesday morning. Well excuse me for asking but didn't he and his friends have JOBS to get up for and go to bright and early?

Now Auntie said he didn't finish school and dropped out in the 11th Grade (Junior year of HS) but there are still Jobs that drop-outs can get -- they'll be minimum wage and you can't support a family flipping burgers as a career -- However!...if he had a job to go to in the morning -- any job -- he'd be f--king alive today!

And when did it become okay for people (and folk) to ignore the 'Park Closed At ___pm' signs? When we were in High School (back in the Stone Age) and hung out at McKinley Park during the Spring & Summer we made damn sure we were OUT of the park by 10:00 PM. There was also a CPD Squad Car that patrolled the park like clockwork and made sure everyone was out of the park at closing time.

But today the closing times are ignored and they're not enforced. That would be discriminating against Poor People and Minorities. So why even have a closing time? Let folks legally use them anytime they want, and the Park Dist can save money on signs. Rahm should love that.

Just to clear things up... "Two Tecs and 50 Shot" refers to these future MIT Honor Student (and Altar Boys) Technicians designing a reusable rocket that's good for 50 shots before being recycled into gluten free food to feed the poor in developing countries that the USA, under Bush (both of them), exploited. They were shooting at night so they didn't disturb their fellow Honor Students. The gunmen were from both 016 and Glenview and were members of the KKK since 1872....

I grew up on the south side with no father. Surely I've been arrested multiple times and involved in multiple shootings, right? Nope. The one parent I did have worked hard, raised me right, and made sure I stayed on the right path. Now, here I am, an actual productive member of society, college-educated, never arrested, and being lumped in with the "southsiders." The common denominator with the ghetto thugs isn't geography. They have a different set of things in common. I'll let you scratch your bonehead until it bleeds trying to figure out just what those ghetto thugs have in common. Ok, I'll give you a small hint: your "southsiders" can also be found on the west side. Does that help? Let's not pretend this issue is about where one grows up. It's about a lack of parenting, a lack of responsibility, a lack of accountability, too many free handouts, rewards for having more and more children you refuse to raise, and just a general attitude that everything is someone else's fault. There are some very low crime areas of the south side, with no shootings. Guess which portion of the population doesn't love in those areas.

Not sure why Off. Rialmo did this interview, but some good quotes from him and McStreetlights.

“If you want to be a guardian in Chicago, be prepared to start going to a lot of cops’ funerals,” says Rialmo during a series of interviews with the Marshall Project, his first since the shooting.

Rialmo, 6 ft. 2 in. with a dusting of facial hair and arms covered with sleeves of tattoos, comes from a family of first responders. His father, who is Mexican American, is a city fireman; his mother’s brother, a mix of Italian and Irish, is a veteran cop assigned to police headquarters.After high school, Rialmo spent six years with the Marines, including an assignment in Iraq, where he patrolled the streets of Tikrit as a machine gunner on a humvee. He had always wanted to follow his father into the fire department. But because the test for police officers came sooner, he took that instead and became one of many war veterans who have gravitated to policing.He ended up assigned to the 11th, the heart of Chicago’s most persistent problems. Rialmo, at his lawyer’s insistence, would say little about the death of Bettie Jones. “I feel terrible about it to this day, and will for the rest of my life,” he says, “but people don't know how it was to be in that situation, and ‘sorry’ will never cut it.”
Of his lawsuit, he says he filed it as a way of defending his name, and he doesn’t expect to see any money from it.But he had plenty to say about the theorists experimenting with the city’s law enforcement. “They could send Sigmund Freud on some of these calls, and he wouldn't be able to do anything,” Rialmo says...


McCarthy was no stranger to politics, but he says he was surprised at the extent to which the Democratic city hall machine influenced the police department. “There is always politics. The politics here in Chicago in the police department was so strong, previously you had elected officials, like alderman, who would select their district commander,” he says. When he took the job, McCarthy says, he demanded an assurance that he would be able to make his own appointments and run the department the way he wanted. “And that ruffled a lot of feathers with people here in Chicago, because that’s not the Chicago Way.”

OT
A lawsuit was filed today in the police shooting where the 15 yr old fled from a stolen car wanted for an earlier shooting. The lawyer is referencing the "Blue Ribbon Panels" determination that the CPD is a racist organization. Thanks Rahm. Maybe since they are referencing this POS report the corp counsel should depose everyone on the panel and determine exactly what went into making their determination.

But wait - Rev Jesse Jackson, Sr. wants Obama to come to Chicago & personally supervise the DOJ review team? Just admit that the #blm kids have dumped you as a spokesperson since they're smarter than the media & with your son's greed as a Congressman you need to saddle up and ride into the sunset with your mistress & her future illegitimate offspring.

OT - Anyone see the new graduated IL income tax proposal they are now trying to push in Springfield? This is the latest scheme the political shysters are trying to hatch. Instead of everyone paying the usual 3.5 % flat tax, they have concocted a new plan that keeps the rate for everyone making less than 100K the same, but those with yearly income between 100K - 500K pay 3.75%, 500K - 1.5 MIL would pay 8.50%, and 1.5 MIL + pays 9.75%. They have projected an $1.5 billion revenue increase from this plan, and I'm sure they are salivating over thought of getting their hands on more taxpayer dollars. What these geniuses are not figuring is that the bulk of the tax hike meant hit those with the 500K + income will fail because most people who command the high paying salaries are in corporate positions that are mobile. That means that they can declare residency just about anywhere if they are travel extensively for work, so why would they choose residency in a state that will steal 8.5% of their income when they can easily live in another state that has little or ZERO state income tax? And as for the millionaires making >1.5 M, they can easily hold dual residency and declare their primary residence in another state without paying Illinois' outrages income taxes. Basically, they will fall short of getting any additional money because people will vote with their feet, just like the many who have already left the state. Rauner is against this proposal and will probably veto any bill containing it, if they somehow manage to amend the state constitution which already prohibits a graduated income tax in the first place.

Even if this happened during daylight and there was an 05 car, what would you have them do? Intervene and God forbid, have to use leathal force on these college bound students!? They would be condemned from the highest mountain for doing their jobs and not to mention interrupting the creative process of promising rap star youths. Oh no the hell with that. The message the media and the community has been echoing is loud and clear. Be safe out there and Stay fetal my friends.

Back when we had real journalists with enough balls to tell the truth, Chicago Mike Royko did a piece on the death of 2 Pac Shakur and the perversion of rap stars and their gang proclivities. How it was completely illogical after reaching commercial success to still want to delve in the mud. Lack of opportunity? I think not. More like cultural phenomenon. I guess it's racist to point that out these days.

That used to be such a great park. Softball leagues up the wazoo, touch football, a pool, a great gym. In those days the only shooting was in dice games in the stairwell. Drink a quart or two, go home. What could have happened that turned it to shit?

McCarthy was right; this is why Chicago is fucked up.

Its a dictatorship here.

Oh, BTW; shootings went through the roof the MINUTE Rahm fired him - don't deny it! And it doesn't look like its going to stop anytime soon.

Why not? The Target chain has just decided to let people use whatever bathroom they're "comfortable" in.

I don't know if I'm "comfortable" with that. As presidential candidate Ted Cruz said, "We don't want men in the bathroom with little girls."

This is a major victory for the "we're breaking down barriers" crowd, huh?

Once word gets around, I think we're headed for EU-style sexual assaults in washrooms, locker rooms, etc. Mess of bucket boys hanging in the ladies room, "We comfortable."

I grew up on the south side with no father. Surely I've been arrested multiple times and involved in multiple shootings, right? Nope. The one parent I did have worked hard, raised me right, and made sure I stayed on the right path. Now, here I am, an actual productive member of society, college-educated, never arrested, and being lumped in with the "southsiders." The common denominator with the ghetto thugs isn't geography. They have a different set of things in common. I'll let you scratch your bonehead until it bleeds trying to figure out just what those ghetto thugs have in common. Ok, I'll give you a small hint: your "southsiders" can also be found on the west side. Does that help? Let's not pretend this issue is about where one grows up. It's about a lack of parenting, a lack of responsibility, a lack of accountability, too many free handouts, rewards for having more and more children you refuse to raise, and just a general attitude that everything is someone else's fault. There are some very low crime areas of the south side, with no shootings. Guess which portion of the population doesn't love in those areas.

4/20/2016 02:34:00 PM

Good for you that your mom had common sense values and imparted them on you. It isn't about geography, but values and attitude. You explained it yourself as your mom was "hardworking" and rode herd over you making sure you made the right choices. Give yourself credit too for having listened to her and avoiding trouble in your youth. I'm a native southsider and agree with much of what you stated about the welfare state influences on bad behavior. Wishing you continued success in your life and career. Statistically you beat some long odds being a young black male from a single parent family. Kudos to you for having made good choices.
