River of Violence in Chicago Consumes All it Touches

I have a message for all the people working directly in the trenches of Chicago’s WAR zone, the unprecedented levels of violence that are being dealt with regularly in this city, are very damaging to the heart the mind and the soul, and as the Blood flows through the neighborhoods of Chicago like a winding a river of sadness, with no end in sight. We must start to think about all the casualties that are physiologically affected by all this violence. it is important that these wounds are addressed in a similar fashion as a gunshot victim would be treated for his or her wounds. it is an individual responsibility all involved must manage, because if left un managed, the river has a way of sudeley over taking you and drowning you in its current of sorrow, changing you and in most cases not for the better, and you won’t even realize it.

Each must create an outlet that allows a form of release if you want to survive the onslaught, I Know this firsthand, because over the past five years I used myself as a test case and documented every change that occurred within me over this period. And there have been many, I Know for a fact we all share nights when we come home and bury our faces in the pillow and try to forget the horror of it all, it is much easier to manage the conscious state of mind, but where the problem lies is, in the subconscious, that always creeps in at night when we are at our most vulnerable, when I started this mission 5 years ago, the faces of gunshot victims started following me home, and 2 years later it became a bus load of faces, and five years later it has now grown into a caravan of busses full of faces, that every so often invade my sleep and infiltrate my dreams.

There are times I wonder why I go back to the Carnage? unfortunately the longer I stay away the harder it gets harder to return to the streets. Each person deals with the never-ending stress brought on by all this madness differently, and it is crucial to be on guard against the effects that these horrific events entail. And it is imperative you Leave all of it in the streets and take time for your selves and spend as much time as you can with family and friends. this clears the circuits of the mind and recharges and reenergizes you, so you can, do it over and over again.

The ones I am really concerned about are the children of these neighborhoods that are swept up in this tsunami of violence and are directly affected by all this madness. I believe they need the most immediate attention. And I Please Don’t Forget about these kids.

I Think the time has come to take my own advice and take time away and do some fishing with my buddy sprite here see ya in a week and please stay safe out there.

When I was a young man and old gangster from 63rd and Racine told me, your gonna learn there’s not a lot of loyalty and understanding throughout one’s life, if you want loyalty and understanding then get a DOG.

WARNING GRAPHIC CONTENT: Bloody Chicago, Maggio News Video.
This situation all started when a man was found wounded in the parking lot of Connie’s pizza in the Bridgeport neighborhood, and another was found was found uninjured near the expressway at 31st Street, the man found by Connie’s told police a man was shot and killed somewhere on the Dan Ryan Expressway, soon the call came out over the radio and then police fanned out to find the vehicle and when the Chicago police found the car, a couple of Illinois state troopers were already working the scene.

As I started filming the troopers removing the wounded 25-year-old man from the car they soon realized he was shot in the back of the neck area, the trooper was assisted by a female trooper, they laid the man down on the ash fault and started to administer CPR, this dramatic event went on for over 7 minutes, and the reason for this was, the ambulance was most likely having a hard time reaching the scene due to the traffic bottle neck created by this incident.

I couldn’t help but noticing how hard the troopers were working to save this man, it as though he was one of their own family members, it was unclear at the time how the two other passengers got off the 6 story expressway overpass.

I soon learned they exited from the south bound I55 ramp and then jumped down to field below, it was never made clear what their involvement was in this incident. When the ambulance finally arrived, the paramedics took over and worked on the man for an additional couple of minutes, but then the man died on the scene, and a short time later was covered with a white sheet.

I have a few things to say about what I witnessed on that dark expressway Friday night, people are now seeing just how tragic all this insanity is taking place in Chicago, now we have a man that lost his life, and a now family has to burry their son, and lets not forget about the troopers that sadly lost the battle between life and death,and will have to live with this tragedy for the rest of their lives.

People just don’t realize the toll tragedy’s like this take on everybody touched by incidents like this, and people should be grateful for cops like this because one day it could be you or one of your family members in need of serious help like this, and next time the feeling arises to bash cops because some cop makes a mistake or a bad judgment call, think about this video and these two TROOPERS that went above and beyond the call of duty, before you do that.

Maurice Granton CPD Shooting Video, Still Leaves Questions

On May 7th 2018, A 24 year old man was shot by a Chicago cop in the at 47th Street in the city’s Bronzeville neighborhood, 24-year-old Maurice Granton Jr., had been on CPD’s radar. He was spotted on a police POD camera, a cop approached Granton on a narcotics investigation, he got up and ran as he hopped the first fence the officer chasing him injured his foot and fell to the ground moments later one gunshot can be heard – then three gunshots in a row. It’s not clear who fired the shots.

The cop that shot Granton appears to be shooting him as he was trying to scale a fence, no confrontation can be seen when he was shot, but we do not know what transpired before he was shot, CPD claims the cop fired 3 shots, and Granton fired the other shot.

Police also shared a picture of the gun that was recovered from the scene CPD Claims this was the gun Granton was carrying that night.

CPD did release the video but did not release the results from ballistics tests and lab reports on the gun Granton allegedly fired. This is a great example why the public gets pissed, release it all, because if CPD Doesn’t, the public starts to think a cover up is in the making.

People say just because they run doesn’t give cops the right to shot them, I agree, unless, they are running and or pointing or firing a gun in the process, but the other side of the argument is they can’t shoot these guys if they Don’t Run, so why run and take the chance of being shot by a cop.

Take the 18-month hit instead 18 months in the cube on a gun or drug charge is better than being put in a box underground for eternity. What decision would you make? My Dad always told me don’t fight cops or run from them in the streets, if you do you will lose, he said you want to beat the cops, then beat them in a court of Law, you can’t lose your life that way.

What bothers me most about this video is no aid was given to this man after he was shot laying on the ground for at least 4 minutes, one officer walks over and looks down and does nothing to help him. Why???

There is more to this shooting than meets the eye, I guess we have no choice but to wait for the bureaucracy to release the remaining facts, one day.

COPA Video: Austin Police Involved Shooting from May 2018

The Civilian Office of Police Accountability released video of a Chicago police shooting Wednesday night.

This shooting took place in the Austin Neighborhood in the 15th District cops were alerted to shots fired detected by ShotSpotter technology in the 5200-block of West Ohio Street shortly before 3 a.m. on May 26 2018.

Most of these police involved shootings start the exact same way, suspects refuse to comply with the first police command of STOP and as usual the command falls on deaf ears and the suspect flees and then what follows next is the suspect ends up being shot while running from police with a gun as in this case. Should police allow the suspect to get away to possibly harm someone or should they stop the suspect by shooting him?
