    They get at it nice and early I like that enthusiasm but i would think they would arrest them for desturbing the peace all that gunfire going off before 6am

  • Anglo-Saxon

    Leave it to our black homies to shoot someone from a moving vehicle! Pathetic Losers!

    • Jim hamilton

      Much cowards those Cesspool dwelers i kinda feel sorry for the white people that live in and around area having to put up with all the shiit floating in that Cesspool it can only be a Cesspool if it has shiit in it. I do see where Pat Quinn is trying to build a drain into indiana that may provide a little run off for you

      • Jims an idiot

        Well, the gang members that were shot are Royals, plenty of whom are white… so…

    Anglo Saxon,
    sorry to hear your racist rant. Glad your utilizing you first amendment rights. Im assuming you’ve never been to Albany Park. Where did it say race in the article???? If you dont know about Albany Park, let me tell you they have plenty of white trash known as the Simon City Royals that are as much a part of the neighborhoods crime as any other street gang.

    • Lyndia

      They don’t know that Albany Park has white gangs that are deadlyl Only Blacks are involved in gangs according to their twisted logic.

      • Jim Hamilton

        98% of the violent crime goes to you sorry thats just the way it is agroup of white kids is not a gang they know that there is safety in numbers from you thugs

    • Jim Hamilton

      Indi are you suggesting that a White gang member drove through his own area shooting his own? Even mexicans don’t do that. The blacks are the ones that kill each othe,r and as I said a group of white kids playing in the park you automaticaly start calling them a gang. We teach our white kids that there is safety in numbers. I’m not saying there aren’t a few white gangs out there but you are always so quick to jump all over when a white kid goes astray but you keep your mouth shut and give 15 blacks a free pass then a white kid shows up in the news and you start spewing your stuff.

      • Indi

        Im suggesting that your an idiot if you believe what your saying. You know nothing of Albany Park. You know nothing of city life thats for sure!!!! You are a bigot who wants to put down every race except your own! Keep protecting your own, thats fine. I lived in Albany Park 30 years. I know how it is in that neighborhood, FIRST HAND! Not throught the intrenet. Its a gang problem in that city, not a race problem, Please figure that out!!!

  • Lyndia
