Another Violent Weekend, 13 Killed, 51 Wounded in Chicago Shootings

WARNING GRAPHIC, Bloody Chicago Video: This weekend in Chicago 13 people were shot and killed and 51 others were wounded, 6 teens were among the shooting victims Fifteen-year-old Terrance Malden, was the first teen shot killed, this happened in the Jeffery Manor neighborhood and Five other teenagers were wounded in separate shootings over the weekend.

Bloody 4th of July in Chicago, 17 Killed, 70 Wounded in Shootings

Bloody Chicago Video: This weekend ranked in my top ten most violent weekends 17 were killed including a child and a teen girl and 70 others were wounded on the battlefields of Chicago all of this can be directly attributed to, bad policy a failed justice system along with failed leadership, but ultimately it has to be laid at the feet of individual violent killers.

To me All lives matter equally except the children their lives are more valuable than any others and there is nobody that’s going to tell me any different.

Video: Part 2 Destroying America in the Name of Injustice

Bloody Chicago Video: This Video covers cops and the violence in Chicago its about Black Lives Matter and what will happen with their request to abolish cops, and why their request will only get MORE People Killed, 6 children were killed last week the violence is spiraling out of control.

Part 1 Destroying America in the Name of Injustice

Bloody Chicago Video: I would like to now end this video but before I do I want to show you something, let’s talk about race and cops for a minute what you are seeing is a white bad cop killing a black man by leaning his knee on his neck for over 8 minutes until he stopped breathing and died, and this was done with the supervision of 3 other bad cops.

Now look at the left screen, this white Illinois state trooper and a female trooper removed wounded 23-year-old Shaquille Dirkans for from the car and seen he was shot in the back of the neck area, the white trooper assisted by a white female trooper, laid the man down on the ash fault and administered CPR, for over ten minutes he worked on this black young man trying to save his life, it was like he was one of his own family members and this was a very dramatic and tense ten minutes and I know this because I was there. The young man died minutes after the paramedics arrived and I could see the disappointment in both of those troopers’ eyes. And I’m sure this event will revisit them over and over in their dreams.

There are two sides the cop coin and these two incidents are the very best and the very worst in policing what should be done is, the cop that killed George Floyd should have his day in court, convicted and needs to be made an example of, a life sentence will send a message to others that want to do things like this and that would end this horrible chapter in policing for now.

And the two Illinois State troopers that tried to save that young man’s life, they should be appreciated respected and celebrated and modeled not vilified and attacked for something they had nothing to do with.

I have been right about a lot of things over my career and I got to tell ya I see him I see the devil in the rearview mirror and everyday he is gaining ground we are at a crucial crossroad in this city and country and we better return the power to the people and then turn this policing situation around before we get to the point, of no return.

RIP Greg Zanis The Cross Man

On May 5th 2020 unsung hero 69-year-old Greg Zanis passed away from bladder cancer in his home in Aurora Illinois in the early hours Monday. Greg Zanis was a carpenter by trade, and he is the is the founder of Crosses for Losses, he became known as the cross man. He made handmade memorials for 23 years to commemorate victims of mass shootings and natural disasters across the country.

Over his 23-year quest to make a difference Greg has traveled over 800K miles setting up 27,000 handmade crosses for the victims and their families. I lot of people don’t know this, but Greg kept handwritten notebooks full of the 27.000 names of the victims he built memorials for.

I met Greg briefly in 2016 during the crosses march for Chicago’s over 800 homicide victims, he seemed like a nice guy to me but it was the look in his eyes, what he had in his eyes, is what’s missing in many of our fellow human beings today. It was now clear to me that he genially cared and believed in what he was doing.

I would like to extend my condolences to the Zanis Family, Greg Zanis was one of a kind and the world needs more like him Mr Zantis you will be missed by many tens of thousands and now sadly the time has come for you to unite with the people you championed throughout your life.

Rest in Peace Mr Greg Zanis

Bloody Chicago Renders Medical Aid to Motorcycle Accident Victims on the Dan Ryan

Bloody Chicago Video: There was another shooting on at 67th and Cottage grove, as I was rolling there on the outbound Dan Ryan heading south, I seen a bunch of sparks, cars were swerving, and then people started slamming on the brakes.

As I made my way across the expressway, I could not see something serious had just happened I then could see the people laying on the highway. Parts from the car and the bike were all over the expressway, I want to make clear there was no time to put a mask on madam mayor, so I threw your social distancing and mask mandate out the window.

Then I immediately blocked off the wreck scene with my car and put on my emergency vehicle lights then grabbed my stop the bleeding trauma kit then jumped out and started rendering medical aid the two injured bikers. The female had multiple injuries her back both legs and her head injuries looked serious and by the size of gash in the males head looked bad to but this guy never left his feet he stood tall the whole time during this traumatic situation. I hope that both bikers from the Legion of Honor Motorcycle Club recover. The clot pack Combat Gauze was given to me personally by the ladies at North American Rescue, Thanks Ladies !!!!!!!
