- Carl Benton was playing music at a house party in the South Chicago neighborhood on the Far South Side early Saturday when he looked up and saw people rushing toward him.
Soon, women were on top of him during what he recalled being about 10 minutes of gunfire. He thinks he heard "about 100" gunshots just after 2:10 a.m. from inside and outside a home in the 8800 block of South Exchange Avenue.
Along with the tone-deafness, the irony was thick:
- A CeaseFire sticker was visible on the front door of a home at the edge of the crime scene. Nearby, residents had posted on a wooden fence a sign of a gun, warning the public that they don't call 911.
That wasn't posted to warn the public - that was posted to warn the other bangers. Obviously this "reporter" has no sense of gang-banger sarcasm.
