    Jesus Christ……can’t even stand outside on your balcolny in Chicago.

    Very sorry to hear this sad news.

  • Leroy Goldberg

    Not a Good Friday for her.

    • G-Lep

      Definitely not!! Perhaps Father PHLEGMer can present her family with a toy-gun-free Easter basket (with a bent-ear bunny, of course).

  • Malcom

    no one is in custody, how shocking.

  • G-Lep

    Yo, WBBM: 40th & Albany ain’t Archer Heights.

  • Leroy Got It Why Cant You??.

    Thank you Leroy for your sense of humor, Jesus would of liked the shot on the balcony on Good Friday/ rose up on Easter reference. Did not think anyone would get the joke. Regards, To Live And Die In L.A. (Chi Town Guy).

    I live across the street from the house and it is GANG central. At the last CAPS meeting 5 families came to lodge complaints against the new occupants. With the gunfire that has been heard the past 3 weeks it is amazing someone wasn’t killed sooner. The many occupants of the house threaten families as they walk by. I am sorry someone had to die but please do not compare them to Jesus Christ.
    PS- WBBM- the neighborhood is Brighton Park

    • G-Lep

      Are they renters? They probably are — if so, go after the damn absentee landlord and make his life a livin’ hell until he throws them out or sells the place. Completely unacceptable!!
