Flashback: War Zone in Chicago to Anarchy in Ferguson 2014

A lot of people don’t know much about the origins of Maggio News I have been all over the country covering many different radical groups over a four-year period. One day I got tired of the streets of Chicago and decided to take a break and went to Ferguson Missouri to cover the protests there, little did I know at the time it would turn out to be anything but a break, being white and looking like a cop to some, made it all the more dangerous, the protests turned into shooting mass rioting looting and burnings, all of this set the stage for the most violent 24 hours of my life. But made it out unscathed.

This is a look from the ground of what really happened in Ferguson Missouri after the not guilty verdict was announced against cop Darren Wilson in the shooting and killing of Mike Brown.

This is what anarchy looks like folks, it isn’t pretty!!!! Don’t ever forget it people!!!!!!!!!

JUSTICE for Murdered Chicago 9-Year-Old, Tyshawn Lee, R.I.P. 2019

Bloody Chicago Video: Tyshawn’s family the residents of Auburn Gresham and the people of Chicago have patiently waited for the wheels of justice to turn in this case and today they have, giving 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee Justice, I think now this young boy can finally rest in peace.

Four men were eventually arrested in connection to the murder of 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee. All four men were over 25 years of age.

The first to go down was, Anthony Morgan age 32 bought guns in New Mexico and sold them here in Chicago, 3 of the guns were tied to 3 homicides in Chicago including the Murder of Tyson Lee. Anthony Morgan only received 4 years in prison.

The second to go down was, getaway driver Kevin Edwards age 26, in sept 2019 he plead guilty to first-degree murder in exchange for a 25-year prison sentence.

And the third was the shooter Dwright Boone-Doty age 25 he was found guilty of first-degree cook county jury on oct 3rd of 2019 he faces life in prison.

And the last man to go down was Corey Morgan age 31 was the mastermind behind the murder he was also found guilty of first-degree murder cook county jury on oct 4th of 2019 he faces 100 years in prison.

The neighborhood of Auburn Gresham still searches for peace 4 years after Tyshawn’s death, unfortunately the neighborhood has been unable to attain this, and it seems to be an unattainable goal for the people of Auburn Gresham, at least for now.

Violent Summer of 2019 Ends, 142 People Murdered in Chicago

BLOODY CHICAGO VIDEO: The Bloody summer in Chicago, claimed 142, men, teens, women, from neighborhoods across the city.
Over the last two weekends, 15 people were killed, and 39 others were wounded in shootings on the bloody streets of Chicago. The summer is ending, and it’s been a tough one, despite a double-digit drop-in shootings and homicides during the months of July and August, over the summer months I covered 5 Mass shootings were at least five or as high as 8 were shot at one time.

This year has been a deadly one for the women of Chicago, 44 have been killed and 231 were wounded in shootings, but the big number is the amount of men that were shot this year, 304 men and teens were killed, and 1337 were wounded in shootings only 9 months into the year.

Over the summer time in Chicago a person is shot every 3 hours and a person is killed every 16 hours, the homicide clearance rate is a dismal 9.5% out of the 294 homicides only 28 suspects were charged and no suspects have been charged in the remaining 266 homicides to date. I understand CPD was short almost 300 detectives last year, and I am well aware it takes time to train new detectives, but this clearance rate needs to move up not down, like it has been, putting New detectives on should be top priority, by the brass of the CPD.

The Chicago police have had a very difficult last week of summer a Veteran of the fugitive unit was shot three times and was critically wounded, and another cop was also injured in the west Englewood incident. A couple of hours earlier 2 cops were critically injured and dragged by a fleeing vehicle in Bronzeville, and then there were two suicides, 40-year-old Paul Escamilla a highly decorated police officer was found dead in a north side forest preserve. A 61-year-old retired Chicago police officer was found with a gunshot wound to the head on the south side. People need to realize cops are human beings too and some struggle with the extreme pressure that comes with this difficult job they do every day……..

So far this year there have been 2100 people shot 361 have been killed and 1738 have been wounded and there have been 9 police involved shootings that left 5 dead and 4 wounded.

Shooters and Killers an American Epidemic?

Update: (Audio upload and a couple of other things were not right its all been repaired, check it out).

Bloody Chicago, Remake Video: Over the years in Chicago I have covered dozens of multiple person shootings and over the month of August I covered 4, where at least 4 or more people were shot in a single incident. The labor day weekend arrived and I decided not to go out and cover the shootings, because I feel people are basically sick and tired of all this madness.

There where 2 mass shootings earlier this month, one in El Paso Texas and one in Dayton Ohio, And over the Labor day holiday weekend there were 2 more mass shootings, one in Mobile, Alabama and the next day there was another in Odessa Texas, All of these shootings combined combined left 38 people dead and over 80 others wounded.

Now last month here in Chicago 46 people were shot and killed and 241 were wounded. When the statistics are broke down, they show there is a mass shooting nearly every week in Chicago.

These horrific mass shootings, begin and end with evil individuals that in some cases have no rhyme or reason for the crimes they commit, and then theirs this new reactionary overly emotional society that has some seeking instant revenge, at any cost. when you add in unchecked mental illness, and lets not forget about unproven Psychotropic drugs being prescribed to some of these mass shooters becomes a recipe for disaster.

The Root Cause: 6 Killed, 23 Wounded in Weekend Shootings in Chicago

Bloody Chicago Video: This weekend in Chicago 29 people were shot, 6 of them fatally, in citywide shootings. August 23rd thru 25th 2019

I would like to pay my respects to a devoted mother of 4 young girls, her name, Marshia Bowman, she was shot in the head this past Wednesday while driving with her four children. She was caught in the crossfire near the intersection of Sibley and Chicago ave in the neighboring town of Dolton, 2 days later she died in the hospital no suspects are in custody as of yet. There has been a gofundme page set up, Children of Marshia Bowen Future Fund, plesase help the kids out and donate, im going too.

This mother and her kids are part of the reason, why, I do what do, I just don’t know why I was sent here, to do this.

We are steadily losing the good ones to senseless violence and we as a society can’t afford to lose any more like her, I want to leave you with this photo of her and her children during a happier time…..

Full Moon Weekend, 3 Killed, 24 Wounded in Chicago Shootings

Bloody Chicago VIDEO: A thirteen-year-old girl was shot in the shoulder at 92nd and Ellis in the Burnside neighborhood. she was in the back bedroom of the home when shots were fired from two shooters outside from the sidewalk. A bullet went through the window and struck the girl in the left shoulder. she was taken to Comers in stable condition. A couple of years ago I was at a Chicago teachers rally, and I listened to this young teacher speaking about needing quite a bit of state and federal funding to higher more professional help to treat the young children she claims are suffering from the sure signs of PTSD post-traumatic stress disorder, she was talking about the children living in some of these very violent neighborhoods.

I personally spoke with her after she left the stage, she basically told me teachers are not counselor’s or physiatrists, were teachers and there is only so much they can do to help these children. People I don’t think the public realizes how many times a day shots are fired in some of these neighborhoods, and the reason you don’t hear about it is because in most cases no one gets hit, but in this case, the bullet found a young girl supposedly safe at home, the cold hard facts are this is what the kids that live in some of these war ravaged neighborhoods are up against daily, and the kids are the reason I am out here.

27 people were shot, 3 of them fatally — across Chicago over the weekend, so far this year 1764 people were shot 293 of them were killed. This has been the least violent weekend in quite some time here in Chicago.

Riding on Chicago’s Merry-go-round of Violence

This video is dedicated to all that perished over the past five years on the streets of Chicago.

When I talk about dreaming my life away, what I dream about is peace for the people of Chicago.

I love watching the Ferris Wheel go round and round, but hate riding the merry-go-round of violence that never stops spinning.

I Found John Lennon’s lyrics to be fitting for this video.

Please Help Support Bloody Chicago

My name is Vic Maggio I am a citizen Journalist here in Chicago, I am asking for your help to keep Bloody Chicago rolling through the neighborhoods of Chicago documenting the violence in a way no other MEDIA outlet is. About five years ago I set out on a mission to show just how horrific the gun violence in Chicago really is, exposing the history is key to understanding the problem, because without this understanding, the problems cannot be fixed or slowed down.
In 2010 I created, and in 2013 the YouTube Channel BLOODY CHICAGO followed, over the years I have roamed the most violent neighborhoods in Chicago, covering the carnage taking place on the streets. I have been caught in the crossfire three times, the dangers in doing this job are many to say the least. Nobody covers the violence in Chicago quite like I do, no holding back, I call it, as I see it. I have been told I am very outspoken, in fact, a cop once told me there is nothing more dangerous in Chicago then having an opinion like yours. It goes against the status quo.
Unfortunately, YouTube, Facebook and Google would like nothing more than to silence ME and my opinion. They have made it impossible for me to recoup my expenses and to continue, Why? Because what I produce is not family friendly and is a subject most don’t want me covering because in their minds the gun is evil not the people using them, because of this I have no choice but to ASK YOU the PUBLIC for help, I would hate to give up five years of very hard work, because there is still much, much more to do.

YouTube Claims my content is not family friendly and for that reason they do not allow many adds in my videos

CPD, 2 Arrested for the Murder of Mother in Chicago Lawn Cell Phone Store

Bloody Chicago Video: On April 26th, 2019, a, lone bullet killed a mother as she stood in a Southwest Side cellphone store with her two children had been intended for a group of rival gang members. The shooter 23-year-old Bryant Mitchell was arrested less than a week after he fired the shots that killed the mother of 3 Candice Dickerson a pharmacy technician at Norwegian American Hospital,, Mitchell told detectives that he hadn’t intended to kill miss Dickerson, he said “this wasn’t for the lady” and that “she was in the wrong place at the wrong time,” Mitchell, who faces three counts of attempted first-degree murder, was ordered held without bail, days later 24 year old Marco Zabala, was charged with first-degree murder and three counts of attempted first-degree murder for allegedly providing the handgun used to kill Candice Dickerson.

According to police before the shooting, Mitchell and two others — all reputed members of the Satan Disciples street gang — watched a Chrysler sedan occupied by three men pull into a parking lot to sell weed. Gang signs were flashed then the Chrysler started to leave the parking lot Mitchell and his friends, ran down toward 59th, and Mitchell then fired four shots at the car.

One shot shattered the rear window of the Chrysler and two others struck a nearby ambulance, but the fourth, bullet went through the window of the MetroPCS store and struck Candice Dickerson in the head, killing her, and now we have 3 young boys without a mother, hopefully the courts will find justice for Candice and her family.
