Vigil as a Target
We thought a "vigil" was supposed to be a peaceful remembrance of a recently deceased individual. Evidently, it's just another version of "target selection:"
- A woman was shot to death Sunday night at a vigil on the same Brainerd neighborhood block where a man was killed a day earlier on the South Side, officials said.
The 18-year-old was among three people shot at 8:07 p.m. in the 8900 block of South Justine, according to Chicago Police. The group was standing outside at the vigil when a grey minivan drove toward them and two people got out and began shooting. The shooters then got back inside the van and drove away.
We guess we had it wrong all these years. Unless it's the "community" that has it wrong?
