Momma Needs a NEW CAR!

Posted on November 10, 2015

New Car!Quite the power couple here:

“As the mother of slain 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee denies allegations that she spent funeral donations on a new car, the boy’s father apparently was asking for funeral money as well.

Karla Lee removed her Instagram and Facebook accounts after defending the purchase of a new car on Saturday, but some videos of her defending the car purchase remain online.

According to unverified Facebook posts Saturday, Lee posted on Facebook that she spent money from her son’s GoFundMe page on the car, then deleted her account due to overwhelming negative reaction.

Lee later told ABC7 that she used her own money for the car. The fundraiser was closed Sunday morning after raising more than $17,000.”

Imagine that. People had a negative reaction to their funeral donations being used for a new car. And not to be out done, the father took time off in helping the police find his son’s killer(s) to whip up some t-shirts:

“In another bizarre twist, Tyshawn’s father — whose gang ties police say led to his son’s execution — appears to have started another GoFundMe page seeking donations for funeral expenses. The page was quickly taken down after comments criticizing the move flooded in.”

Stay classy.

Keep it short and to the point. Name calling and similar stupidity will be deleted. If you insist on writing several paragraphs, start your own blog.

    These two keep acting like that and soon Yale or Missouri will offer them full scholarships.

    The kid had no chance from the gate.

    Most excellent AMC Gremlin!

      I got misty eyed when I first saw it today. Love at second sight. And the color is phenomenal.

      • Mr. Scotie November 10, 2015 at 11:16 am

        Ha! You can’t spell phenoin….phonoime…..you can’t spell AWESOME!

        • Citycop November 10, 2015 at 12:38 pm

          LOL. You should see my police reports.

      • John L. November 11, 2015 at 5:07 am

        Speaking of color. Whoever saw a bright RED casket before. That’s class.

      Love the photo…Parents had one when I was a kid, and I had a Gremlin for several years until 2009. My car was not close to being as nice as the one in the photo..

    Now I’m no math major, but a 26 year old mother with a 9 year son would most likely pin her around 17 when she had this poor fellow. The seriously need to put IUDs in these hood rats after their first period and make them get a permit to take them out.

    • Brock Obamson November 10, 2015 at 3:39 pm

      Sounds like a good idea but I have a feeling the Democrats wouldn’t go for it

    • James M November 10, 2015 at 8:11 pm

      Something like that was proposed in Baltimore in the 90’s but failed because it was too radical. Too eugenic. I wonder how many less murders B’more would have had if only

    • Wolverine November 10, 2015 at 9:33 pm

      If that happened how would democrats grow voters?

    Where is the October recap against the estimates at the end of September.

  6. Kyle Moriarty November 10, 2015 at 3:22 pm

    put them in jail

  7. Kkrdent November 10, 2015 at 3:38 pm

    She posted a picture some where (believe it was instagram), proving the car wasn’t bought with donation funds. That was Saturday.

    • Moving Target November 10, 2015 at 8:50 pm

      If she had money for a car she didn’t need money for funeral expenses.

    I’ve been calling it “The Ghetto Lottery” for years. Each kid is a taxpayer funded entry. Killed by gangbangers? Wah, Wah, Wah, Wah. Better luck next time. Killed or injured in a CTA accident or public housing fire? Ding Ding Ding. We have a winner. Killed by CPD? JACKPOT! Tens of dollars in lost future earnings plus millions in pain and suffering can be yours. Now with “Gofundme”, winners almost daily. Like voting in Chicago, enter early and often. You can’t win if you don’t play.

    Now if she were to use the money on a mint condition 1972 AMC Gremlin X, I wouldn’t have a problem with that.

    • Citycop November 10, 2015 at 9:52 pm

      Ditto. Or a Pacer, maybe a Subaru Brat. But mint condition is a must.

      • No one November 10, 2015 at 10:23 pm

        A mint condition 72 Ford Pinto would be best.

      • Chiraq or Afcago? November 11, 2015 at 4:15 pm

        Dibs on the Brat…

  10. ab November 11, 2015 at 8:59 am

    funeral directors, lawyers and doctors are the one’s who invented gofundme. go figure.

  11. Mr. Scotie November 11, 2015 at 9:00 am

    My buddy in high school (mid-80s) had a burnt orange Gremlin. Called it Agent Orange. Good times.

    “The Rev. Michael Pfleger said the boy’s death is a wake-up call for the city.”

    • Mike November 11, 2015 at 3:13 pm

      Just as the car purchase is a wake-up call for all GoFundMe donors…

    • Chiraq or Afcago? November 11, 2015 at 4:17 pm

      The city must be in a Rip Van Winkle slumber, geez.

    • No one November 16, 2015 at 12:54 am

      The other 400+ murders don’t really matter.

  13. Frank Rizzo November 11, 2015 at 3:36 pm

    Pfleger says it’s a wake-up call! He’s a penis! Chicago keeps hitting the snooze button.
