The New Normal?

  • Moments after getting picked up from a summer camp Wednesday in the Austin neighborhood, 4-year-old Asante Glover III and his sister 6-year-old Keziah Shealy had hoped to find a quick snack before taking a nap, relatives said.

    When they left Columbus Park on the West Side around 4 p.m., the siblings spotted a vendor selling crushed, flavored ice, known as "snowballs," they thought they’d found the perfect summertime treat. But before they could make their way to buy a cup, a black car pulled up in the 5500 block of West Van Buren Street and someone inside fired shots, hitting the children and their 27-year-old father.

    The snowball vendor rushed to their aid, putting the children and their father in the backseat of her truck and speeding to Mount Sinai Hospital.

    [...] The children’s mother Shajaun Sims, a CTA employee, hurried to the hospital where her son was treated for a graze wound to his left hip and left leg and her daughter looked after for a gunshot wound to the thigh. Meanwhile, their father underwent surgery for eight gunshot wounds, including three to the chest. He was listed in critical condition, but was later stabilized, according to police and relatives.
Golly, who were these intemperate youth shooting at?

So is this the new thing? Dad takes kids our for whatever reason, thinking they'll be like little bullet-proof shields from those who would do him harm, but now they're just miniature backstops catching lead? Like the 9-year-old the other day, all dressed up in his Daddy's colors, now these two. The gang wars have entered new lows - not only the assholes who would shoot kids, but the assholes using them as cover.

UPDATE: Dear ol' Dad returned fire? Oh this just gets better and better. How did the media not report that part?

Why do their women, who have full knowledge that their 'baby daddies' have active gang ties, even allow these men to leave the home with their children in tow? The best thing these women could do for the kids would be to move as far away from Chicago (and their father's gang life) as they can.

Kass had a witty column on Wed. about Rahmn "polishing his international profile" in London, Berlin and Milan while Chicago is in crisis. This pos even tweeted out a photo of himself in Winston Churchill's underground bunker. One south side alderman didn't even know he was gone. Kass said as long as he is over there he can duck all of the problems in the city like the slaughtered victims by gangbangers and the political scandals. So Rahm fiddles while Chicago burns. So we know he has a security detail and an adminstrative staff with him. So the question is how much is this costing us in dollars? Did we pay for eveybody's transportation, loging, meals under the guise of the trip bringing some great benefit to Chicago? Eric Bolling, FOX News, who's hometown is Chicago, commented on his Wed. show that Chicago is a war zone created by the liberal Democrats. He said Rahmn is a complete failure who eliminated two mobile CPD units then hired a yes man, Eddie Johnson, who promotes Rahmn's foolish liberal polices and tied the hands of the police with the ACLU and placed massive restrictions on the police with the new contact card system. So if all that doesn't get your blood boiling listen to this. Russ Stewart an attorney who writes a political analysis and opinion column for the neighborhood Nadig Newspapers (Jul 19 2018) said it now looks likely that Rahm will win a third term as mayor in 2019. There are too many reasons to list here so check out the article. Stewart is always spot on in his analysis of the political chicanery in Chicago politics.

My, my, things have changed in the world.
Bangers can now afford summer camp for the kids.
(No, I'm just kidding myself. There's a free ride for
the underprivileged somewhere in there.)
Daddy finds out the hard way that when you're branded,
you're branded, kids or no kids. Somewhere in the hospital
the FIC (female-in-charge) is screaming "they shot my babies."

Best part is the media portraying 'Dad' as a loving, caring father that participates in his children's life by taking them
to and from day camp and for ghetto ice on sweltering days. This before he reminds them to brush their teeth before putting them down for a nap awaiting Mom to get home and make dinner where they all sit down together and discuss the details of their respective day.

Hate being so callous, but NFG on this bullshit. As long as this ghetto drama stays as contained as possible to "their" 'hoods I couldn't really care less.

Aided by predicted high temperatures and suffocating humidity, watch for the Self Cleaning Ghetto Oven to do what it does best over the next few days.

Same mentality as in third world countries. My nephew was in Iraq when his squad came under sniper fire. The squad sniper would not shoot because Mr. Bad Guy was surrounded by women and children.
My nephew, being born and raised in the country, with lots of squirrel hunting under his belt, wasn't going to let anyone shoot at him and he not shoot back. Anyhow, with the squads sniper's rifle, he put another hole in Mr. Bad Guys head.
He thought he was in trouble, again, when he got called in about 3 weeks later. After confirming the story, the army sent him to sniper school.
During his second tour, an IED permanently disabled him. But ask any veteran from that area of the world, women and children are expendable. Same with thug gangs, I reckon.

At one time if you were with kids that may have prevented someone from taking a shot at you, but not anymore. That just goes to show you exactly how disfunctional and reckless these gang bangers have become. Many would blame society for allowing this to happen and guess what I agree with that logic. Keep give people social promotions for not achieving the required grades. Keep giving people food and shelter (section 8 and Link) without having to do anything for it. Keep letting people out of jail or out on bond with no consequences for their actions. What did we expect to get in return an ambitious productive citizen. I think not. We got exactly what we created, people who will do whatever they want whenever they want with no fear of consequences and someone always coming to their defense. How do you defend a young adult who takes what at least a dozen shots at a gang rival walking through a park at 4pm with a 6 year old and a 4 year old? That person shouldn't be a part of free society. But let's not forget "the police are the problem."

So 'daddy' quit his gang last week and is now going for the Father Of The Year Award because *he turned his life around*, nice.

Unfortunately it looks like 'daddy' forgot to get that Memo out to all his rival gangs -- via whatever ghetto social media they currently use to post these announcements -- and as such, using his little kids as Bullet Shields hadn't gone into effect as yet.

I don't know what the usual time frame is for something like that. But I'd wait at least a year before going near my family again and putting their lives at risk.

These gangbangers have very weird rules to live by.

Is Chicago media especially the suntimes (Bet new ownership has something to do with this) showing the race of offenders finally?

Police: Armed robbers strike twice in 10 minutes on Near West Side

http://chicago.suntimes.com/news/police-armed-robbers-strike-twice-in-10-minutes-on-near-west-side/

Excerpt:The suspects were described as five black males between 15 and 24 years old, police said. One of them was more specifically described as standing between 5-foot-8 and 6 feet and weighing 140 to 160 pounds. He had a dark complexion and wore multi-colored “pajama looking pants.”

Another suspect was 20 to 24 years old, about 6 feet tall and wore a black T-shirt and black pants, police said.

(Black males wow accuracy showing who causes majority of violent crime in chiraq and many other places)! Still hoping mitchell,sneed,steinberg,brown are terminated soon to get back to honest reporting!

Then CBS2 Chicago releasing the video from police about "drunken otis" maldonado saying how police are thought of and demanding passage into a crime scene:

More new normal this black female Detroit police chief just got the job as head of Dallas police and listening to her interview she brags about low homicide rates in Detroit:

http://www.nbcdfw.com/investigations/Incoming-Dallas-Police-Chief-Speaks-Exclusively-With-NBC-5-435536143.html

Excerpt:"I believe I can. Here's what I know. I have proven success here in the city of Detroit. Since obtaining the rank of deputy chief, we've seen tremendous decreases in crime in the city. The first year-and-a-half we experienced a 40-year low in homicides," she said.

That is what she said but then a little research:

In 2015, Detroit had its lowest number of criminal homicides in 40 years, and as of 2015, Detroit has the second highest murder rate in the United States. St. Louis now has the highest murder rate at 49.9 murders per 100,000, compared to Detroit's 43.5.

So the new normal is to lie! She could of come to chiraq where they all lie the mayor, the toni, tommy the 50 and all the rest amazing how Dallas bought that lie from her!

Maybe joey Ferguson could be called by Dallas to investigate the candidates he does so well like for example the lieutenants exam all the evidence all the low hanging fruit but he finds nothing, but then gets a huge budget and hires more.

But wait joey spent hundreds of thousands and disclosed "parking gate" bunch on nonsense more like a vendetta against any people getting something he probably used before but now wants to stop it!

WE allow media hacks to excuse it all. WE pay that bill too.
WW allow the presence of traitors, who FORCE US to pay for it all, even the electricity for their free phones to access social media and play 2017 gangland war.

And WE call THEM Stupid?

To turn this around, all we have to do is stop FUNDING IT ALL, making them fund their own "community' themselves. It is time to get real skin in the game, regardless of what color it happens to be. Indeed doing so is the only way to make this pathetic idiocy come to a halt.

Being shot 8 times won't be such a badge of honor when it means losing great grannies house to pay for the medical bills resulting from it. Great Granny won't be happy about it -yeah shes still alive but I digress (even though that too is caused by everything for free politics)

Mt. Sinai is a trauma center and Loretto isn't. All Loretto can do is stabilize them then transfer the patients to Mt. Sinai or Stroger.

Their relatives say they have reason to believe this shooting was targeted, given that their father, who has a lengthy arrest record, had survived a shooting about a week earlier. Birth said he had recently tried to stop associating with former friends.

"He did a whole 360 from stunting on the corner," she said. "He did change his life and now they’re trying to kill him."
