The ACLU will be all over this, complaining that the CPD is targeting babies:
- A woman was charged after police found a loaded rifle wrapped in blankets in a stroller she was pushing and a handgun with extra ammunition tucked into a diaper bag early Monday in the Back of the Yards neighborhood.
Police were monitoring cameras in the area of 45th and Wood streets because of gunfire there about 11 p.m. Sunday and saw two women enter a house about 2:15 a.m. - one carrying a backpack and the other a bag - and leave with a stroller about five minutes later.
Those officers asked officers on the street to "conduct an investigatory stop," which they did in the 4500 block of South Hermitage Avenue, about a block from where the women were first seen.
After asking if there were any weapons in the stroller, which was covered, one of the women said yes. Inside, officers found a Mossberg Model 472 30-30 rifle with two rounds and a spent shell casing wrapped in blankets. Police also found a Smith and Wesson 9mm with 15 live rounds, an extra magazine (loaded with 15 live rounds), an extra magazine and a box of 9mm ammunition in a diaper bag that was on the stroller's seat.
And when the gangs start targeting other gang bangers pushing strollers, but manage to kill a bunch of infants, we're sure the "community" will be upset and wonder why the police didn't do anything.
