Self Defense, Again (x2)
Posted on October 11, 2017
We have ourselves a rare two-fer edition of Play Stupid Games, Win Stupid Prizes. First up is Rudy, who got caught being someplace he shouldn’t have been:
“A man has been charged after he was shot multiple times while trying to break into a home late Saturday in the Bronzeville neighborhood on the South Side.
Rudolph Bailey, 44, faces one felony count of home invasion, according to Chicago Police.
At 10:54 p.m., he was using a crowbar to break into a home in the 4500 block of South St. Lawrence when the resident opened fire, police said. Bailey suffered multiple gunshot wounds and jumped into a vehicle, which sped to Mercy Hospital. He was then transferred in critical condition to Stroger Hospital.
The homeowner, a 60-year-old man, has a valid FOID card and concealed carry permit, police said.”
Then there’s Pleasure, who picked a fight with the wrong woman:
“Police say the fatal shooting of 25-year-old Pleasure Cardell Singleton Jr. was a case of self-defense, and the woman who shot him will not be charged.
The woman shot Singleton after he stabbed her multiple times Thursday afternoon in a domestic fight in his West Side Lawndale neighborhood home, Chicago Police said.
About 4:05 p.m. Oct. 5, Singleton, a father of three, was shot in the chest after he stabbed the 25-year-old woman multiple times in the 4000 block of West 21st Street, police said.
The woman was taken in serious condition to Mount Sinai Hospital, and Singleton was pronounced dead at the scene at 4:48 p.m., authorities said.
The citizenry is now tied with the police for the most justifiable homicides this year with 10 each.
