11, INCLUDING GIRL, 3, SHOT IN CHICAGO PARK
AP ^ | Sep 20, 2013

Posted on 09/19/2013 10:43:41 PM PDT by Jet Jaguar

Eleven people, including a 3-year-old child, were injured late Thursday when someone opened fire on people in a park located in Chicago's Back of the Yards neighborhood.

Chicago Fire Department officials said the child was in critical condition. Two other victims were also in critical condition, officials said.

Officer Amina Greer said the shooting occurred shortly after 10 p.m. Thursday. According to Greer, at least 10 ambulances responded to the scene, transporting victims to several area hospitals.

A witness, Julian Harris, told the Chicago Sun-Times that dreadlocked men fired at him from a gray sedan before turning toward Cornell Square Park and firing at people in the area. He said his 3-year-old nephew was wounded in the cheek.

A 3 year old!

My God, if I ever harmed a 3 year old even by accident I’d wish I were dead.

What sort of monsters do we have roaming the streets? How much worse is this all going to get anyway....

Beam me up.

More Chicago South Side violence. Night after night after night, ... unless it’s during the day.

I’m sure Jesse Jackson (Sr. ... Jr. is otherwise occupied) will be there shortly to denounce the culture of violence and minister to the victims. Oh, wait, this was black-on-black violence? Never mind.

Because that's where the crack is and babysitters can get expensive.

“Why is a 3-year old out late at night?”

My first thought.

My second thought - Why are 11 other people hanging around in a park after 10PM on a school and work night?

Hmmmm,, im going to guess gang shooting with a shotgun using some sort of birdshot? This just seems to have the “oh look, it happened again” feel to it.

Everyone who caught a BB is “shot”. Again, just a hunch.

Except that 3 are supposedly in critical condition, which would seem to rule out birdshot.

Because these people don’t work. They sleep all day and come out at night like cockroaches, and so begins their “day.” Restaurants and stores are open all night in these thug neighborhoods, and it’s daytime business as usual, but at night. Like one Chicago cop once said, just put some yellow tape around these neighborhoods and let them kill each other off. You’re never going to change them, civilize them, make them productive members of the human race, ‘cause they like the life they have. And it’s been going on for years.....

I predicted back in the 80’s that the “crack babies” born then would grow up into monsters without a conscious.

Unfortunately, I was spot on.

I think MSNBC closes at 5 pm due to budget constraints and lack of staff and audience and doesn't do night time stories. ;-)

This wasn’t a mass shooting, at least my according to the article. People were just “injured” not gunned down. And for all know from the article, the shooters were white dudes with dreads.

"..dreadlocked.."

King Willy's Jamaican Voodoo Squad? (re:Predator2)

"..Like one Chicago cop once said, just put some yellow tape around these neighborhoods and let them kill each other off. You’re never going to change them, civilize them, make them productive members of the human race, ‘cause they like the life they have. And it’s been going on for years.."

Yup, sounds very mid-eastish, eh? 'Cept the muzzies been on a roll for centuries and we still keep tryin to use reason on'em.

**sigh** Somebody lemme know when we have a more physical objective, would ya? d;^)

I guess they rolled out about 1000 LEO complete with SWAT and RECON Squads, closed the neighborhood down for 4 days, searched every corner of every house in the neighborhood, locked the residents in their homes for the entire period cancelled Community and City events etc etc.

That Mr. pResident, did NOT happen, mainly because it is not a rare event. Maybe the 3 year old BUT, like others stated what are all these people hanging in the park at all hours of the night, plus on a Thursday -

Not like it may be the middle of July and in the middle of a heat wave with no air conditioning in the homes...

"...Chicago Sun-Times that dreadlocked men fired at him..."

Again, the marxists refuse to mention "blacks" as the shooters.

Beat cops work in the real world everyday and are in the best position to know what reality is. They can not deny it unlike most of society. See my tagline.

Totally agree with you. Both groups will not change their ways or beliefs...so you do what you have to do in dealing with them.

You’re so right. The men and women in blue deal with the human trash heaps of Chicago every day..God bless them and keep them safe. I listen to Chicago Police Calls nightly and I am well informed on what they have to deal with.

Don't waste your time trying to get the true news from leftist sources. In Chicago, read www.secondcitycop.blogspot.com. This is the blog written by a cop for all Chicago cops and the public. It has a great audience and it's a very informative read. Check it out.

I wonder of the shooters were on the Chicago Police "Heat List". Maybe they just didn't get their doorknock yet to be told they were being watched.
