He lived in the same block where he was shot. That's convenience, epitomized. Why drive a lot when you can drive a little!

I don’t think very many drive-by shootings are really random; they’re a hit of some type.

Of the ones that are truly random, I’d guess that most of those are gang induction requirements.

Chicago’s proud system of corruption and crime continues. It’s history is amazing and horrifying. We saw the Zero installed the Chicago Way and it is fighting back against Trump.

Assassination was a part of its history:, a Mayor -at least one, aldermen, scores of would-be candidates and officials, police and judicial corruption on a massive scale completely from top to bottom.

Bicycles and scooters have long been the favored European and Middle Eastern method of assassination. You shoot, ride around the corner, ditch the bike and walk into the crowd, or just walk away after ditching your colorful jacket.

He rode a bicycle.

He’d be a biker if he rode a motorcycle.
