Man shot dead in row over dripping air conditioning unit
Mail Online ^ | 19 July 2011 | Daily Mail Reporter

Posted on 07/19/2011 6:41:30 PM PDT by BerryDingle

A man was shot dead after being accused by his killer of intentionally pouring water over his sister. Jimmy Parker from Chicago was confronted by Charles Sims, and shot eight times after denying any wrongdoing. Sims' sister had claimed that Parker had targeted her, however police investigations revealed that a faulty air conditioning unit was to blame for the spill. Upon learning of his sister's plight, Sims approached Parker, who having rejected the accusation, was punched and then shot repeatedly with a 9mm handgun. Chicago Police Detective Anthony Noradin said that Sims allegedly stood over Parker to 'finish him off.' Noradin revealed: 'He administered a coup de grace of sorts.' Six witnesses have identified Sims as the shooter, and he now awaits trial despite denying any involvement.

I didn’t need to see the picture— and all I got wrong was the hairstyle. (WTF is that— Li’l Topsy?)

I even had the facial expression right in my mind’s eye.

Even a “non faulty” window AC unit can build up enough condensation water in high-humidity conditions to slop over the side.

I doubt Obama and Moosejaw understand what AC is. The WH windows are probably wide open.

We're actually culling some chickens that quit laying because it's so hot. I'm eating chicken again tomorrow.

I think you could hatch eggs without a chicken setting on them. I work outside until 0900 local, and start back up at about 2000 local.

Sister called police at midnight after feeling water dripping on her (when returning home). Now excuse me, how could a few drips (or even a small steady stream) warrant calling the police?.....or telling your brother who has a 9mm and obviously a hair-trigger temper to help you fix your problem of dripping water (OUTSIDE????)

The ruling elite in Chicago think it wise to keep everybody disarmed so that folks like Sims can get their way with a minimum of gunfire.

Last year we remodled an installed double stud framing on the interior shell of our home an expanding foam insulation. Sort of a beer cooler design per se.

We use whole house fans to use cool evening air. Swamp coolers when humidity is low. Central heat an air for muggy days an window air conditioners as backups.

I agree as to the heros of the AC world.

Stay Chilly !

The killer (will spend the rest of this life in jail, thus dead) and the one killed equal two, even with my limited math skills.

This story is obviously a fantasy. Only police are allowed to have guns in Chicago. Unless this guy was an undercover cop, it isn’t possible that he shot anyone. Maybe he stabbed him 8 times with a weapon that produced holes that resembled bullet holes.
