Chicago continues to be a national center for youth homicides, after a 14-year old boy was killed Friday night in conjunction with 13 other wounds from gunfire on the same day. Last Friday, there was a gang related shooting near the Lincoln Park Zoo, according to police.
Antonio Davis was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head, according to police. The boy was walking with a friend when a van pulled next to him and opened fire, according to police News Affairs Officer Robert Perez.
The shooter kept firing on the boy even after he hit the ground.
“He shot him while the victim was down several times,’’ Perez said.
Police have not yet found a suspect for the shooting.
A second shooting left someone wounded in the park north of the Lincoln Park Zoo. Three more victims were in a separate city location when several vehicles pulled up alongside them and opened fire.
“One vehicle veered off the roadway and struck a 25-year-old man,’’ said Perez. “It then made a u-turn and hit a 21-year-old woman.’’
Police are saying that this shooting was also gang related. A series of other shootings also took place on the same night. Chicago is gaining a growing reputation for its homicides, labeling it as one of the most dangerous cities in America.
Stay out the streets.
NOT GOING TO HAPPEN..
Kanye talked about this on a watch the throne song
Chi town has always been nuts since Al Capone's time...but with the youth, it don't make any sense to even be in all this drama. There's so many opportunities to make it out here its a shame but they don't see it...OR... they aren't trying to seek it.
AND WITH THE SO CALLED BLACKS WHO ARE SEEN AS LEADERS, THEY ONLY AROUND WHEN THERE IS MAJOR PUBLICITY AROUND A CERTAIN CASE
SHIT REAL OUT HERE SMH
CHI-TOWN,BLACK-ON-BLACK IS NOT WHAT'S HAPPENING!
Follow me on this one. Where is the only place we hear or see a consistent and steady stream of depictions of African American on African American murder? Is it Television....not really...is it found in a specific genre of our music that our young trigger pullers are engrossed in? You be the judge. What is the primary age group of the shooters?
As a radio program producer(The Rich Experience www.KSCL.FM or 91.3FM) I have listened to an enormous amount of rap over the years and I have come to the realization that most rap is predicated on this imaginary beef with everybody! The rappers that make the most money, which appears to be our God these days, are the ones who seem to depict how they will murder you the best and most creative way with the biggest gun! I Love Rap and Hip Hop, but we as a community need to cure our dependency on beef rap, cause these kids are acting theses beef rap murder depictions out in real time. It's their murder theme music. I've never heard of a murderer listening to Smokey Robinson, The Temptations, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, or Aretha Franklin and then going out to shoot their brown skin brother from another mother with a Mac-10, Chopper, or UZI.
let's open the discussion further because we have the power and tools to fix the mess, and some have the resolve.
S/O TO GIDEON...I HAVE BEEN LEADING UP TO THAT BUT HEY SINCE YOU TOOK IT HOME..LET'S GO..OUR YOUTH ARE FASCINATED WITH THE "NEW" HIP HOP CULTURE THAT ACTUALLY IS NOT HIP HOP AT ALL..I HAVE OFTEN ASKED MYSELF HOW THE "MOTHER'S AND FATHER'S" OF HIP HOP ACTUALLY FELT ABOUT THE CURRENT STATE OF HIP HOP? I MEAN WAS THIS THEIR VISION THEY HAD IN MIND? WHAT THEY THOUGHT WAS GIVING BACK CULTURALLY HAS ALMOST BECAME A MOCKERY. RAPPERS TALK ABOUT STEALING, SCREWING, DRIVING SIPPING ON "SYRUP" AND ONCE AGAIN SCREWING. I ASKED THE QUESTION LAST WEEK..WHY DO RECORD COMPANIES ALLOW THIS BEHAVIOR? YOU DO NOT SEE ALL THIS DRAMA/MARKETING FOR OTHER ARTIST OR ARE HAVE WE JUST GOTTEN AWAY FROM IT ALL TOGETHER..
You gotta blame the people that put the guns out here for us to kill each other with. This country put itself in a position to where people feel they need to resort to violence in order to fix certain situations with other individuals.
EXACTLY @igobythenameofA who made them things its crazy we cant even send our kids out to play in our front yard cuz ppl act stupid & dont think.
No claims of being a Conspiracy Theorist, but If one were to design a perfect Genocide Plan, It would utilize rap as a vehicle, similar to a Trojan horse. An effective Genocide Plan would have an invisible strategy that would be appealing yet deadly. So historically, African culture is immersed in the rhythm of the drum beat. In comparison, Rap is not rap without a rhythm and beat. These young trigger pullers are more than likely to be daily influenced by an excellent beat arrangement with KILLER Lyrics, pun intended. The Trojan horse is the beat and once the beat gets inside the psyche, the listener has very little chance against the KILLER lyrics. I'm convinced that our young African American trigger pullers are subconsciously influenced by murder suggestions in rap more so than we wish to admit.
If we step back and ponder, who is dying most in Chicago and nation wide from these hot bullets? Is it Caucasian men and boys.....No, not really. Is it Caucasian women....no, never really. Is it African American women.....yes some are experiencing hot lead ripping through their flesh. No question, It is the African American male of all ages, but especially the ones under 35 who are blasted apart by hot lead daily across the USA. Were guns and bullets made for us to use on each other, cause thats how it appears? Genocide Plan is subtle. If another race and gender were being shot and shooting within the gender and race there would undoubtedly been an uproar.
Record company decision makers are likely to reason toward the Federal Reserve Notes which affords them a comfortable existence. Legal Tender is not more valuable than our family members. We are tender. What we choose to demand affects what we are supplied. Many hip-hoppers are addicted to the the Genocide Plan and are fulfilling it's edicts. I survived Shreveport, Louisiana in the nineties where more blood pooled in our streets from gang related gun battles than any other city and state. We can murder the Genocide Plan by demanding a higher level of art from rap and I will start with myself by not recording or financially supporting murder lyric rap and the Genocide Plan.
