Skip to comments.Chicago alderman tries to explain why his intern was the hospital mass shooter(T)

It's bad enough that four people died in a mass shooting incident at Chicago's Mercy Hospital last Monday. In addition to the perp, "[t]he victims were identified as Dr. Tamara O'Neal and Chicago police officer Samuel Jimenez. A pharmaceutical assistant was also shot and killed."
"He had a very, very pleasant personality," Maldonado said of Juan Lopez, noting that his internship lasted for about eight weeks in either 2016 or 2017.
No written records of the internship?
Alderman Maldonado goes for the Sgt. Schultz defense: "I know nothing!" The alderman said the city runs the internship program and that he didn't personally choose Lopez or know him before he applied for the job.
"I think he was the only person who applied. You have to be a college student to apply," he said.
"Interns are not assigned to do much of significance, they're basically gofers for the very limited staff that we have[.] ... He had no decision making authority," Maldonado said, adding that Lopez mostly was tasked with shuffling papers and getting coffee.

Hes a Democrat. What more needs to be said?
Clearly we need to ban interns.
Was it an unpaid internship? These positions are basically slaves. I suppose they look good on a resume, but what is the value? "I got coffee for people" -- "You did??? You're exactly the kind of person I need on my team at Acme Explosives!!"
"He had a very, very pleasant personality," Maldonado said of Juan Lopez, noting that his internship lasted for about eight weeks in either 2016 or 2017. No written records of the internship?
Hey, quit askin' so many questions, the guy only murdered three people inside a hospital, including one police officer who was probably the blame for the whole thing. /s
Can or did the alderman assist the perp in getting a ccw?
What ward is Maldanado in ? 11th? For a comparison check out the 14th Burkes ward boundaries. Compare it the way it was in the 90’s and todays. Those should be the one of the issues for the upcoming mayoral race how those communities like Brighton Park. McKinley Park. Back of the Yards. Bridgeport Archer Heights and Garfield Ridge have been cut up.
The gun made him do it.
Yep - we need assault liberal (redundant) control.
In his defense, it’s possible he really DID know nothing.
A lot of these people keep a low profile and leave it bottled up inside until they snap.
Saw that earlier someplace.
Juan Lopez..hmmmm..Id love to know his immigration status
I would be willing to go way out on a limb and say that he did Nully. The question would be, why did he? I do not think that it was to be used as a paper weight to hold his Sunday School Book open while in Sunday School or to hole his Bible open while he was in church.But other than that, the sky is the limit.
It’s the way to bet.
Seem some ugly male latino “Won’t take no for an answer” wymum hatin’ caballero attitudes in my day. Could this have been the case?
If the Alderman did sign off on, or facilitate, a c/c/w, there'd be an easily accessible paper trail.....oh, wait...this is Chicago.
I think that it could have been. But the question of the ccw that Nully alluded to remains. I do not live in Chicago, but I read that they have strict gun laws. Did the Alderman exert his political influence for him, and if he did, why?
