  • Four people were killed, including a 16-year-old boy, and at least 17 other people were wounded in shootings across Chicago since Friday morning, police said.

    A 6-year-old boy was playing with a friend in his Park Manor neighborhood when the gunfire that fatally wounded the 16-year-old boy started around the corner.

    Standing with his father Friday afternoon, Zackariah Reed wore a Batman T-shirt and used his fingers to count out how many gunshots he heard.

    “That’s eight of them,” he said. “I don’t like gunshots.”
The Count says "Very good little guy!

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. 8 gunshots! Ha ha ha ha" (lightning, thunder sound effects)

You get your education where you can.

The picture of the Count reminded me of this classic Dave Chappelle bit about Sesame Street:

Children grow up fast in a war zone. It is a war between the families, the gangs and the clans. It is a war that was brought from the old country to the new.

Black Lives matter silent again, black on black crime 90% of crime but they only speak when a white cop shoots a black criminal, convenient

It wasn't that long ago when that was a relatively quiet area. What a shame. Chatham was very quiet too

I read this blog because I find it informative & enlightening. I was raised on the South Side in the 60's, it was truly a world class city. I now live in rural Indiana, still have family (including 4 of my sons) living in the city. Here is an example of what my 'Chicago' experiences lately:
Early July - went w/a friend who took their grandson to Univ of Chgo to see Lyme disease specialist - that night a child was shot in Englewood, right where we got turned around trying to get back on 90/94 to go home.
June, July & Aug - husband & I make many trips to U of C for his cancer & surgery treatments. I take the Drive back home, down South Shore drive - next day there is a daytime shooting right there. One evening I (again) miss the entrance to the xway, cross over into Englewood area - the next day a teen girl is shot. A few days ago I take the Skyway home, getting on at 79th & Stony - next day there are kids on Divvy bikes shooting up some laundromat. I feel like I need a bulletproof vest to visit him or I'll be lying next to him in the ICU! It's like running some ancient tribal gauntlet just to get there to the hospital! Add in all day & night ambulances pulling up with trauma victims. It is a WAR ZONE!
I feel sorry for you guys. You are the whipping boys for whatever goes wrong. Perhaps you all need to call in sick for a week. Let these idiots battle it out like that move Purge, a gene pool cleansing that will let the city recoup for a few years till it boils over again.
Just wanted to let you all know that more people are for you than against you.

If you want your chiltren to count above 8 buy larger capacity magazines? CPS is obviously just a juvenile holding pen.
If the govmint outlaws hi-cap mags, what's that going to do to the promising scholars and mathematics?
This wasn't created overnight but a persistent problem paved over with govmint programs holding down the uneducated public.
The Obama era is closing and the shit keeps on coming, fast and furiously.

Lookie here:
– "Fearful of a presidential veto if it stopped the FAA’s race-based hiring scheme, Congress on July 13 cut a deal allowing the FAA to hire half of all new controllers based on race. President Obama signed the legislation on July 15.
Soon the rest of us will find out how these rookie ATCs fare in guiding 87,000 flights a day carrying tens of millions of passengers across the U.S."

Now the our skies will be as fvcked up as our City.
Understand that the CPD is doing the same (to comply with the WH) and merit promoting cheaters to positions that result in failing police strategies.

Apparently it only matters to the BLM groups and the media if it's the police that did the shooting.
The thugs shoot, maim and kill virtually with impunity.

(OT) found this on another thread good point are there any hospitals left that take care of us properly without the anti-police stigma attitude?

Really getting worse! At 1 time thought Christ in oaklawn was OK but heard the CFD medic on the scene by the shooting on Merrill saying to a copper on the body cam video "You don't want to go to Christ they don't like cpd coppers there!" The big question is does anyone know what hospitals are accommodating to taxpaying,bill paying,insurance holding police? Want the best fair treatment and if a hospital has employees that don't like police why do we go and get substandard or worse yet care that may kill us?

Off topic: Any reason why a team of high school aged kids, the sons of police and fire personnel from the Southwest side, just won the Senior League World Series and there's no mention on the news?

Wow the white, racist police must have been busy this weekend.

The numbers are high, lots of black people shot.

Oh wait, the police were busy, only they were cleaning up the mess and are the only PEOPLE confronting this issue.

I saw a Sgt. On the transfer order to mass transit 701. Do we still have a Mass Transit unit? I have not seen any of those people on the south side ? I guess it's a good place to retire
