A Rogers Park man is accused of fatally shooting a 13-year-old boy inside an Uptown pizzeria after yelling gang slogans at him, authorities say.

The gentleman’s name is Andre Alejandro, who, according to the article was a member of the Gangster Disciples street gang. More than likely that is because of budget cuts to libraries and probably global warming.

> yelling gang slogans at him
You mean like, “Allahu Akhbar”?
It was sad to see that a “Rogers Park man” did this, and that he’s in the Gangster Disciples. I used to live in Rogers Park. It’s always distressing to learn that more and more formerly nice areas are going “ghetto”, and that the youth gangs have taken root.
The article has weak sentence structure, too:
“Alejandro began yelling at the boy and the two argued and then Alejandro left, police said.”
Also, calling the deceased by his first name (Ivan) is a bit odd. Perhaps because of his age? Still, most articles will refer to people by the family name (Alanis) once the full name (Ivan Alanis) is mentioned.
The article fails to note the time of the shooting (2:45 a.m. is important). The father is perhaps in denial or unaware about the victim’s gang activity but there should be a reference as to why the 13-year old (mentioned as a 14-year old yesterday) was out at that time of the morning, presumably with school was just a few hours away.
Only thing worse than being shot in the pizzeria is being shot in the sausage shop.
Thanks, Groucho. That’s exactly who I was thinking of when I commented. :-)
Maybe the kid was freelancing. Hey, you have take entrepreneurship where you can find it.
Nope, it was an Amish yute.
oh those darned Amish......
Come on you know it could not be the Amish this is Chicago. Only the police and the politically connected can have guns. It must have been a political type who did this.

More about the Gangster Disciples Sons of Obama. Note that the gang has tried to move into “community organizing”, which sounds familiar.
“The Black Gangster Disciple Nation is a gang which was formed on the South-side of Chicago in the late 1960s, by David Barksdale, leader of the Black Disciples, and Larry Hoover, leader of the Supreme Gangsters. The two groups united to form the Black Gangster Disciple Nation (BGDN).
“The gang has made several attempts to legitimize their image. Some members dropped the “B” and began to call themselves GDs or Gangster Disciples. In the 1990s the Gangster Disciples entered into politics in the Chicago tradition of Black Panthers, Black Stone Rangers, Latin Kings, Vice Lords and Young Lords through the formation of the “Growth and Development” movement. Outside of Chicago some gangs will still go by the old name of BGD.”

“It was supposed to stop things like this!”
OBAMA was supposed to stop things like this, to end the horror of Bush the Cruel, to make the sea levels fall and heal the planet!/sarcasm;)
