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.
