Even though weasels will insist that guns are illegal in Chicago -they are in fact legal and quite easy to get from neighboring communities. Probably from gun shows.

Police closed access to interstates 94 and 55 from southbound Lake Shore Drive. Flares were laid out to keep vehicles off the ramp but they were quickly extinguished by wind.


Thanks for that tidbit.

It's news because it caught everyone off guard. Who expects wind in Chicago??

Please...  Please, don't link to that site any more.  It totally crashed my browser.

Speaking as someone who has done web design for like 15 years, I cannot STAND when sites are designed that badly.

Oh, and it sucks that woman got shot.  But at least she doesn't have a drug problem any more.

And, how does a person fire 10-14 shots at a target less than 10 feet away and only score one hit?!

Came to say that some idiot will blame "outside legal gun sales" for his city's gang violence and drug trafficking problems and the proclivity of its poor people to glorify both while suffering the results of both, when in fact there is nothing in the article that indicates what kind of weapon was actually used or where the weapon used was purchased, legally or illegally.  Almost certainly it wasn't the tricked out AR-15 look alike pictured.

Thank you for delivering so soon.  If you have more information about this shooting, don't be like the vast majority of people in that armpit of a city and REPORT it, don't claim you didn't see nuthin', when you obviously did.

Firing from one moving vehicle into another at a target that's mostly obscured by said vehicle? I dunno. Sounds pretty easy to me.

Excuse me, but they're not called clipazines, they're called MAGAZINES.  I think it's pretty obvious that no one cares to hear any of your opinions in guns since you can't even get the names right.  I bet you call that thing in your car a "gas" pedal even though it's called an ACCELERATOR PEDAL.  You have to ride the bus now.

I've only lived in the area for a couple of years and did not get the reference. Pulling it up on youtube now.

Also, it was about 2 degrees last night. In the pictures there's a trooper wearing no coat. He must have like 9 thermal layers under that uniform.

TFA: "at least once".
Which I took as meaning: fatal head-shot and thus no real point to searching for other wounds right away.

What happened to Alliota, Haynes & Jeremiah.

One of their songs is "For Eddie".  Though we were part of the 1970s folk music scene (John Prine, Steve Goodman, Earl Pionke) I never knew who it was about until I read Clay Eals' encyclopedic biography of Steve Goodman, "Facing the Music".  It's about a one-armed piano player, Eddie Balchowsky, who fought in the Spanish Civil War.  Skip Haynes wrote it.

IMHO: King Richard spent his reign putting up a facade with things like Millennium Park, Soldier Field, Wacker Drive and other tourist/business area fix ups while ignoring the residential minority areas.

All the improvements of the 90's and 00's might be undone in this decade if Chicago continues to tear itself apart. It's amazing watching other cities crime rates stay the same or decline while Chicago's spikes.

Haynes still performs around town. He pops up occasionally for live studio performances on JBTV, too.

In the early 90's I had to try to find a recording of Lake Shore Drive because the bride and groom wanted it played at their wedding. Went to like 4 or 5 record shops before finding a copy and overpaying like $20 for it.

When libs see guns they get scared and frightened.  Not me.  When I see a fine weapon like that, I feel excited and aroused by the thought of touching it.  I long feel it, grip the ample girth of its stock within in hand.  Slide my finger into the trigger hole and squeeze; feeling the powerful release of a hot bullet discharging from the barrel.

Libs would never understand this.

Chicagoan checking in: This shiat is getting scary, especially b/c this is our city's 50th homicide and it's only Feb 1.  MOST of the shootings are Gang Member A taking out rival Gang Member B (or vice versa), but we've got wayyyy too many of these idiots with guns who, quite frankly, don't give a shiat if they live or die, or who else lives or dies. The types of guns that are being confiscated aren't cheap-o Saturday Night Specials, but rather assault weapons and Tec-9 type guns which are very expensive.

The other big farking problem with this city is that there's a 1:1 ratio of decent cop/asshole cop.  I used to have a lot of respect for CPD, as it's a really tough job and one that I wouldn't want.  However, I live in a safe part of town/low crime rate and they can be dickheads to the average person <i> just because </i> (in my case, some cop was on a power trip and wrote me 2 moving violations, threatened to handcuff me and my wife in front of our pre-school-aged kids and lied about our involvement when another vehicle struck our PARKED non-operating car).  Imagine how CPD treats people who live in a shiat-ass slum; do you think that person is going to want to go to the cops with information?

I remember back in the 1980's the only place you could find the LSD song was on some radio station's compilation album.  I think it was WCKG?  One of the classic rock stations.  They'd even mention it every time they played the song on that station.

Chicago cops have always had bad attitudes but morale must be getting worse. Now it seems like even genuine "No sir/Yes sir." and following their directions exactly as stated still means risking a snarly response at best and cuffs/jail at worse. Even as an educated, middle call white male I'm uneasy around Chicago cops. I can't imagine what it's like living in the 'hood.

And don't even get me started King Richard selling the street parking franchise for cash.

Of course mur gubbamint is needed because even tho there are like gojillions of people that drive cars O.K. there are bad peeeples that kill others so we need gubbamint to ban that shiat so the few bad peeples can't hurt anybody more and everybody else can just walk or ride a bike.
