:13 shot at Chicago basketball court; 3 year old critical (A mass shooting that won't get much news)

Here's a mass shooting that probably won't elicit calls for more gun control.

Chicago Sun Times:

Thirteen people were shot - including a 3-year-old boy - Thursday night at a South Side park when two gunmen opened fire on a group gathered at a basketball court in the Back of the Yards neighborhood.

As bullets began to fly about 10:15 p.m., the group scattered, taking cover wherever they could at Cornell Square Park, police and witnesses said.

Julian Harris, 22, said his 3-year-old nephew, Deonta "Tay-man" Howard, was shot in the face.

Deonta was taken in critical condition to Mount Sinai Hospital, according to Fire Media Affairs.

Harris said dreadlocked gunmen in a gray sedan fired at him at the corner of Wood and 51st before turning north on Wood and shooting up the park. According to other witnesses, two gunman got out of the car and began shooting.

Police said the shooting was gang-related, but they could not describe how the shooting occurred.

"They hit the light pole next to me but I ducked down and ran into the house," Harris said. "They've been coming round here looking for people to shoot every night - just gang-banging stuff. It's what they do."

The young boy's aunt, Lavada Hardeman, 18, said her brother, was killed on Labor Day.

"I can't catch a break," Hardeman said.

The 3-year-old's uncle, Jerome "J Money" Wood, a rapper who was affiliated with Def Jam artist Durk "Lil Durk" Banks, was shot in the head and died on Sept. 2 in the 6600 block of South Rhodes in the Woodlawn neighborhood.

Corey Brooks, pastor of New Beginnings Church on the South Side presided over Wood's funeral. He said he was called early Friday to again comfort the family at the hospital.

I guess this can’t really be another duplicate thread when all 6 previous threads were from different sources, huh?

Three year old in the park at ten o’clock at night.

That’s NOT how to raise a child.

Bad enough just giving him such a screwed up name.

Because it's all about her, and not about the people actually shot.

This is why America is doomed.

And why should it? I mean after all, the victims are just poor inner city blacks. Reporting on this incident, no matter what their suffering, does nothing to advance the narrative. Anyway, it's not like those black inner voters will ever leave the vote plantation over such a thing, right?

Since the shooters were allegedly black, some wit could have fun with a hoax of Rahm Emanuel and company calling for 100% gun control of blacks only. That is, a law making it a crime for a black person to possess a gun or ammunition.

You just know there are a lot of suckers out there who would believe it.

If you ever strayed too far into south Chicago as I did, you would be amazed they don’t have even more reported violence than they do.

Ben Jr’s High School had about 30 pregnant students attending. This nation is no longer going to Hell in a hand basket. We have arrived.

I knew a woman who attended the Baptist church in her neighborhood in the 60's and 70's . It would be considered a "black" church - black pastor and black parishioners. According to this woman, the pastor preached often on the need to surpass whites in population so they could become the majority and put the whites in their place. He actually called for teens to get pregnant to achieve this goal.

I often hear people question why the black pastors aren't speaking out against this sin of premarital sex and out of wedlock births and I always figured it's was because they're probably promoting it.

Black churches I’ve attended never preached that, but apparently they weren’t as “progressive” as others.
