Wait....Shot Where?

This has to be yet another "fake news" story by the Tribune:
  • A man was shot on a Red Line train after getting into a dispute at a turnstile on the South Side Monday afternoon, one of 10 people hit by gunfire over 12 hours in Chicago, according to police.

    The 23-year-old man approached the Garfield stop at 220 W. Garfield Blvd. around 2 p.m. and began arguing with another man, police said. The argument continued onto the platform and the train, police said.

    The second man pulled a handgun and fired, hitting the 23-year-old in the chest and shoulder, according to police. He was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where his condition was stabilized, police said.
What a crock of shit. Everyone knows that CTA property is gun free. Every station, building, bus and train has at least one sticker saying guns aren't allowed, so this is an impossibility. Someone needs to reopen that J-School and teach some of these wet-behind-the-ears "reporters" the 5-W's of "journalism" so they don't make obvious errors like this. Seriously.

I don’t believe it. You can’t have a gun on the CTA. Say it isn’t so. Tough guns laws are supposed to protect us. Rahm and the Dems know what’s best for me.

Hey I carried a gun in the late 1960s when I worked for the CTA even though employees were forbidden to do so. There were other employees who did so also. You just didn't talk about it. And if you were an operating employee you knew how dangerous it was out there. Of course most crime that occured was minimized by the company. The CTA police force was great, although it was a very small force to deal with such a large system.

I don’t know what you are talking about SSC. I always carry a gun on CTA - it’s full of violent offenders!

The 5 W's of journalism (classical):

Who (identify person or persons involved)

What (specify precisely the events that occurred)

Where (location of events specified)

When (precise times of specified events)

Why (reasons of persons involved as they are known)

The 5 W's of journalism (21st century version)

Who (are we supposed to shit write about on this one?)

What (do our masters want us to make this about?)

Where (can we find some idiots to quote that back up our bullshit?)

When (do we have to have this fictitious fabrication ready to post?)

Why (can't we just copy and paste from a template that fits the present need to deceive?)

Thus, we have the Classic vs the 21st century.

The honorable George Orwell......we now live what you foresaw...... with exception that Big Brother is a multi gendered creature so incredible to imagine that even H.G. Wells would have scoffed at as fiction......

We need more gun laws. They need to make it illegal to shoot someone on a CTA platform, or illegal to shoot someone over a dispute, or illegal to shoot someone in general. They should make it illegal to illegally carry a gun that you intend to use illegally. Gun laws are the answer. If we make more things illegal, criminals will see the light and stop committing crime. Make it harder for those who illegally purchase and steal guns to legally purchase guns, so that they can't commit crimes with their illegally obtained guns. We need more regulations and fees to deter those who don't currently abide by the regulations or pay the fees from even thinking of touching a gun. Murders would be a thing of the past if we just made it more illegal.

A sign saying "Legally carried weapons only" would make sense. Maybe I should go lie down or something like that?

Rahm would say they are not shooting at people they hate the cta stations like what happened with these cans:

Maybe so giant no gun signs that would work! How about spending hundreds of millions more,no not on police who could prevent crime but cameras to clearly see the shot and killed sprawled out! Then this:

The most dangerous block in Chicago, once home to Michelle Obama

The block where Michelle was raised to worst in the entire city, sort of like his presidency the worst ever accomplished what again? More poverty, more "we hate the police" rhetoric, more debt, cuts to military,giving trillions to our enemies! In honor of the first lady who rahm worked for you would think he could do a sweep of this block and "lock it down!" Like the barry obama library another waste of tax dollars which will turn into a vacant building after billions are spent, simply because barry will have nothing of substance to put on display!

Then abc7 headline:Man accused of burgling Lakeview home caught on camera

Burgling wtf is that word:

So now with the new urban wording, abc7 is making up words that are not even in the dictionary, no surprise here that they make-up other stories also!

Transit is safe rahm says so! Look at all of the state of the art millions and millions spent on cameras (who is this connected contractor who got paid off?). Maybe Rahm should spend the money on better GPS systems so coppers get the correct address:

Chicago Police Raid Wrong Home

This seems to be more common maybe contact "googleme" he seems to have the correct answers!

Carry at all times. Shoot true is the need arises. Defend yourself again in court. Bill CTA for your security services. Sue in small claims court.

Read a story like this one and you know it’s an obvious fabrication. For starters, it’s illegal to carry a gun on any CTA transportation. It’s not only illegal, but there are signs and stickers sometimes to remind everyone. Law abiding citizens who have a Illinois CCW permit can’t even protect themselves on the CTA. I feel so much safer now knowing that criminals can see those no carry signs too!

Time for CPD to adopt the short range, low penetration Geco B.A.T.9mm bullet. This will help in regards to police shootings.

Some very funny posts. But as an out of state CCL I carry everywhere in your city. Better to be judged by 12 then carried by 6. Think about it everyone.

Both g assumption that everyone knows CTA is gun free. You have to be able to read to interpret signs and most CPS graduates fail in that catagory they may be unaware that they are breaking law. Not their fault that 2nd grade teacher is to blame.

SCC the problem is the city forgot to put up the safe passage signs. This never could have happened if they had only put up the signs. Besides that, with all the cameras all over the city keeping us safe, I'm sure they have numerous video and photo's of the offender. BTW, I didn't see the article, was there a description, I bet the Hamish were responsible again!

Worked special years ago. The crazy 5th watch Sgt asked how many of us took the CTA to work. He said Zero because the CTA sucks!

Just a community dispute.
Over who gets to either bumrush and jump the turnstile first or try using one of severa dozen stolt CTA Venturo’ cards to find one that’s still good and wasn’t reported.
Give folks their space to express their disagreements and community justifiable use of necessary force to overcome oppression of expression.

Perhaps CTA has one of those hi-lux images of the alleged armed violent community members.
But if they did, wouldn’t it be out by now right?

No credible victim, no crime.
Aw hell no...

Off topic the "Chicago way" continues on:

Indicted Ald. Cochran telling colleagues he’s changed his mind, intends to run

Just like Dorothy brown we have been voted most corrupt city in the USA, and the elected crime wave continues, with the Feds asleep, and sessions in the corner, no wonder people are fleeing this city,county state! The corruption is out if control, and the elected criminals feel entitled to keep their jobs and scooping up envelopes!

Whatever happened to those weapon/bag checks that were supposed to be happening at random CTA stations? I remember them being announced a few years ago, but I've only seen it once at the Halsted stop on the Orange Line.

The IRONY of it?

The story as presented explains the SHOOTER was acting in Self Defense.
All while it is mixed in with other "gun crime" even as they ADMIT it was self defense.

How quaint.
