Father's Day weekend in Chicago, the city Mein Obama calls home and where he 'community organized' with such gusto, was a city of ruin and despair (map of crime in Chicago found here).
Something straight out of a grindhouse film transpired, leaving little doubt that the community Mein Obama organized is anything but disorganized:
Cook County is home to violent block parties and people who find cooperating with police an unacceptable way to pass the time. Of course, in Los Angeles and Seattle cooperating with the police also are deemed unpleasant activities. Indianapolis as well, where an unrelated incident recently transpired that many claim reeks of racial overtones (remember, anytime a white police officer arrests a non-white only racism can explain the action as no justifiable offense can warrant such action).
Eight people were killed and at least 44 others were shot across the city Friday night into early Monday, including a baby girl who suffered a graze wound to the neck when gunfire erupted at a Near West Side barbecue.
Those killed included a 28-year-old man found shot in the chest about 3 a.m. Monday in the 7500 block of South Halsted Street near a South Side church, according to Gresham District police. A passing motorist found the man, identified as Credale Woulard, of 7711 S. Ada St., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's office. He was dressed in women's clothing and was found lying dead on the sidewalk.In the South Side Englewood neighborhood, 44-year-old Darryl Dunn was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head in the 7200 block of South Marshfield Avenue at 2:02 a.m. Monday, authorities said.
About 1:52 a.m. Monday, 25-year-old Larry Johnson of 14003 Park Ave. in Lansing was shot in the 6400 block of South Ingleside Avenue in the South Side Woodlawn neighborhood. He died nearly two hours later at a hospital, police said.
Durwin Hackman, 20, of 3117 W. 172nd St. in Hazel Crest, was killed in a shooting that also injured two others about 11:10 p.m. in the 700 block of West 111th Street in the Far South Side Roseland neighborhood. The three victims were involved in a verbal altercation over a female when other males began to shoot before fleeing the scene.
A 19-year-old man was also taken to Christ Hospital with a gunshot wound to his abdomen and he was listed in critical condition, police said. The third victim, a 21-year-old man, was in "stable" condition at Christ Hospital with a gunshot wound to his left arm.
Three men, two of whom were related, were found fatally shot in the West Side Lawndale neighborhood early Saturday in what police consider gang-related slayings.
The victims were 25-year-old Waseem Smith, 45-year-old Barry Smith and 28-year-old Leon Smith, according to the medical examiner's office. They were shot just after 3 a.m. in the 2300 block of South Springfield Avenue, police said. Police found two of the men in separate cars and the third lying on the street outside one of the cars.
A 19-year-old man died Sunday night after being shot in the head Friday night in the 1800 block of West 87th Street, police said. Pierre York of 8647 S. Wood St. was walking down the street with a friend when they were confronted by a gunman, who fled after shooting York, police said.
In addition to the homicides, at least nine people were shot early Monday, including four men and a baby girl who were injured when gunfire erupted during an outside barbecue on the Near West Side early Monday.
The shooting happened at 12:11 a.m. at 1334 W. Hastings St, according to a Monroe District police lieutenant. Several people attending the barbecue heard shots fired and "everybody started running," the lieutenant said.
One shot struck a 1-year-old girl, who suffered a graze wound to the neck. Four men were also shot, police said. One of the victims, a 34-year-old man, was taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the abdomen. The other three men suffered injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening.
On Sunday, at least 10 people were shot, including a 16-year-old girl who was critically wounded when shots rang out during a fight on a South Side street.
The girl was standing outside at 1251 E. 78th St. at 8:15 p.m. when several fights broke out and one person pulled out a handgun, according to a South Chicago District police captain. The girl was struck in the back and taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn in critical condition.
On an especially violent Saturday, at least 21 people were shot. That included five people injured in four shootings in the West Side Humboldt Park neighborhood, just blocks from the annual Puerto Rican festival.
Following Friday's violent storms, at least one person was injured in a shooting on the South Side.
The National Guard couldn't restore order, serenity and safety to Chicago at this point.
Kneel before Zod-Obama? Look to the community he organized and see the current state of Chicago as but a microcosm for the future of the nation.
SBPDL once heard that it will take dramatic examples to shake people from their apathy. The irreplaceable website Thugreport.com acts as an aggregate for crime and murder reports from across the nation, attempting to show no bias in the process.
Yet a discernible pattern emerges that would require unprecedented machinations to fabricate and can no longer be explained as an elaborate ploy of The Man to suppress Black people nationwide.
To orchestrate a vast conspiracy to implicate Black people as purveyors of criminality in virtually every city in America would necessitate a sophisticated network of informants to continually slander and libel said people as proponents of unrelenting debauchery and degradation.
However, no underground conspiratorial network is needed to accomplish this feat: consult your local nightly news for the unvarnished truth.
Police brutality seems the only determent to escalating levels of Black violence, which seem to be ingrained through nature instead of nurture.
Newsone.com publishes a vital guide for Black people to consult when they face a police confrontation, so that they can then milk the inevitable encounter for as much monetary gain as possible.
As evidenced by Chicago, cooperating with police is the least of Black peoples worries in 2010: cooperating with each other is most pressing.
Dramatic examples to shake people from their apathy? What will it take?
