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.

    Englewood what the hell?

  2. DMS September 27, 2014 at 10:11 pm

    Check out the age range, maybe there cleaning out the old to bring in more young talent in Englewood.
    New young minds and ideas are always a good thing for any enterprise.

    Rahm’s entourage blew many red lights to get to this crime scene. Oh wait, he was going to a funder.

  4. john cass September 28, 2014 at 9:18 am

    Three shot in the ass! In the same weekend! Absolutely fabulataneous. Stunningly high taxes on lodging for outsiders, air fares, taxi service, restaurants. Near impossibility to defend one’s self with legal concealed carry. All due to that supergroup “Rahm & the Aldermen”. Explain to me again why I would want to come and visit Chicago?

    Ahhh, Autumn! When the air turns cool and dry, the leaves begin to turn marvelous colors and the Honor Students begin bustin caps in earnest before Winters Icy hand spoils the fun..

  6. fr. Marquette September 28, 2014 at 9:12 pm

    Screw the border with Mexico Englewood should have a fence built around it.

  7. rob September 29, 2014 at 10:44 am

    I wonder if the MSM will pick up on this and run with it? Not!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Matt September 29, 2014 at 11:23 am


    Media is saying 5 killed 40 wounded

    • W.H.Thompson September 29, 2014 at 11:38 am

      For whatever reason they aren’t counting the 3 fatal stabbings – this one and this one. They also stop counting at midnight on Sunday evening.

  9. Johnmann September 29, 2014 at 12:44 pm

    Strange… the news report on the double stabbing at 3400 N. Odell reads, “He (the suspect) apparently attempted to decapitate the two victims, police said.” Hmm… so was this an ISIS-like honor killing, since the head-danglers were female family members? Or just another psycho-stabbing, to replace the pumpkins on the porch at Halloween? Carl Kolchak needs to get on this one. The MSM will ignore.

    • Sgt X September 30, 2014 at 6:11 am

      Religious beliefs, this will be the next defense for the criminals in the hood…

  10. Wyatt September 29, 2014 at 8:50 pm

    Wow, sounds like Chicago is getting really medieval. Guess they never heard that it is a bad idea to bring a knife to a GUNFIGHT.

    • W.H.Thompson September 30, 2014 at 10:06 am

      It’s a good read. We’ll likely comment on it this week.

    • Johan Meyer September 30, 2014 at 10:42 am

      As a practical matter, is there any legal restriction on group trainings? If a group training can be arranged, one could put the NAACP on the spot (I see they’re quoted in the article), and be asked for funding. That could involve a bus trip to an out-of-town range, etc., and for those that put in the effort, perhaps ask the NAACP for the $650 fee.

      • W.H.Thompson September 30, 2014 at 7:25 pm

        No restrictions on group trainings. Range time is only part of the process, much of it is classroom time which can take place anywhere. It’s simply cheaper to buy a $100 stolen .25 cal heater from T-Bone on the corner than jump through all the hoops.

        The same logic applies to cigarettes around here. They jack taxes on smokes so high that it’s cheaper to buy ones “imported” from Indiana or Missouri. Then the same tax hikers get their collective panties in a bunch when the projected tax revenue isn’t there and people are selling illegal smokes on the corner causing all sorts of other issues.

        • Johan Meyer October 1, 2014 at 12:17 pm

          Sure, but if you want to claim justified homicide, it helps to have all tees crossed, and i s dotted… No point picking up an illegal possession charge.

    • wolf September 30, 2014 at 7:12 pm

      600 plus $$$ is steep!!!. Now live in another state. A CCW permit is $112 plus proof of training. I am retired military so my DD 214 was proof. Walk in, electronic fingerprinting and out with the permit in about 30 minutes. Live in a county with a population of 180,000 and about 1/3 are under age 18. There are 20,000 + permit holders or one in six carry. Almost everyone keeps a 12 guage in their car trunks. Believe me an armed society is polite society. Can’t remember the last homicide, but it was years ago.

    OVer 50 casualties over a non-holiday weekend. VERY impressive Chicago.
