So maybe the shootings aren't that bad.

Come on down. Too hot for Chicagoans.

So far all I have for a topic is video and camera quality. Yes, i have seen better. The rest seems to be BAU in Chicago. And not even a shooting wounding or killing to add to the national tally. Poor effort!

Love that place, a few years ago, I went in and they said they were closing to make it into a restaurant. I guess that changed.

Did the armed suspects call the police on them for being white?

Are the police in league with the Jews, who are using the blacks to carry out an extermination of white Christians?

ETA: Muslims maybe. Not sure how they fit in, but muslims.

Oh! Black Muslims! Working with the Jews! So good in one way, but terrible for the white folk.
