100 Shots

  • 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.

He heard 10 minutes of gunfire. Thats alot of rounds. Play your music inside your house Carl Benton and use headphones. Do not wake the zombie with loud music or outside speech.

1 dead, 1 critical and 4 others wounded. 60-something casings, numerous fired bullets, 4 recovered guns and a handful of cars and houses in the hood shot up. Just another day in the ghetto.

SCC..Too bad you can't post articles via, say, Scum-Times instead of Lib-une.
They will allow me to read articles unless I pay, which I refuse to do.
Not a matter of being cheap; I do not want to contribute to their anti-police, trash talk.

100 shots in 10-minutes. The question is, how many were hit?

Who's going to hold the community Block Captain responsible?
Shots Fired should be a low level non-priority Noise Disturbance response
and NEVER-EVER a blue light special 1-A.

The Police get fired and lose almost everything when they fire their weapons why doesn't the county take the homes away from the people who reside in crime rides properties? 0

Dragons vacated years ago from South Chicago, went to Indiana!
They still go at it from time to time but it's usually on the East Side...

Can someone explain why Pastor Corey Brooks was allowed to walk around inside the crime scene with Area South Detectives?? I do believe he was told to leave by a PO.
