Sad for his family and scary for law abiding residents of the neighborhood...

Anyone notice that this is RIGHT IN FRONT OF HELEN SHILLER'S OFFICE?

Maybe Denise Davis will come out to tell the officers that "the only place there's no crime is Heaven."

I wonder how COURAGE will manage to blame the homeowners for this one, like they did at the CAPS meeting last night.

CAPS is a joke. Only fools attend those meetings.

CAPS is not a joke. If nothing else you get to meet other neighbors interested in making the area safer.

Also, I think you're a douchebag who deserves to get mugged for having that lame-ass attitude.

I did. Is there not anyone in the City of Chicago who might be willing to step in here and say "stop the violence...we want our babies to stop bleeding in the streets??" When a murder like this happens in other neighborhoods, you get religious leaders and community leaders speaking out...you get candlelight vigils and people saying "enough is enough...these kids deserve a chance!" WTF is wrong with Uptown?! How is this all somehow the fault of people who attend CAPS meetings and other such nonsense?

I was waiting at the stoplight when I heard the shots. The dude ran around my car to get away. I called the cops, the were there in seconds. Still, I could have been shot. I don't like having to worry about some dude having bad aim.

Iv'e been here 10 years...it's getting worse.

I agree, this is scary. I just commented on the fire truck post, but will say it again: this is too much. I'm getting out of here.

I think the City should have target practice ranges for the black gangbangers because they are all such bad shots...they must remember to "Squeeze the trigger...not pull it."

nameless!! just to let you guys know. you are not doing anything going to the caps meetings. they have families of the gang members going to the caps meetings to see who is saying what. and who is tricking on all of these people committing the crimes. so just remember that. there is always someone watching............
