Four shot on South Side: ‘Common in our neighborhoods right now’
Serenity Marie’s bus was at a stoplight on Stony Island when she heard a quick burst of gunfire just outside her window.

“I saw cars heading into the parking lot and I heard a bunch of gunshots, people screaming and cars speeding and swerving to get out of the area,” said Marie, 22. “It is a blessing that everyone survived.”

Police say four people were hit as they stood in the parking lot of a Pizza Hut at 67th Street and Stony Island Avenue around 10:40 p.m. Monday. A 16-year-old girl was shot in the thigh; a woman, 22, was wounded in the neck; another woman, 18, suffered a graze wound to the stomach; and a man, 26, was shot in the leg.

Their conditions were all stabilized, according to police.

The shots were fired from a white car as it sped past the Pizza Hut and other stores in a strip mall. Police said the victims were not affiliated with gangs, and investigators were unsure of a motive. Two of the victims worked at the Pizza Hut, police said.

Marie said she didn’t see the gunman’s car but saw people get shot. “It was very disturbing to witness something like that, but that’s usually something common in our neighborhoods right now,” she said.

From his home across Stony Island from the Pizza Hut, real estate investor Mark J. Wallace said he heard 10 to 15 gunshots.

After police secured the scene, Wallace walked to the grassy median and watched detectives search for evidence. Police used yellow evidence markers, orange cones and index cards to mark 9 mm shell casings on the ground.

The shooting saddened Wallace, who works in real estate and also hosts a twice-weekly radio show devoted to issues in the news.

“We’re outraged about police officers shooting,” Wallace said. “But we’re having daily shootings here in our cities, and there doesn’t seem to be the same kind of outrage about that. I think we should have just as much outrage about what’s happening daily in our communities.”

At least 21 people were shot in Chicago in a 12-hour span starting early Sunday afternoon, according to authorities.

Gunfire broke out on the North, South and West sides in that stretch and claimed at least three lives while wounding at least 18: a 14-year-old boy shot in the Austin neighborhood Sunday, and two people shot by police Sunday.

Police believe three people were wounded in a shootout about 9 p.m. near the 900 block of East 80th Street close to South Ingleside Avenue in the East Chatham neighborhood on the South Side, according to police.

A fourth person, believed to have shot at least one of the three, was fatally shot by a police officer moments afterward when he turned toward police with a gun in his hand, according to a police union spokesman.

Details about the other three people shot were not immediately released. One of the three was taken in critical condition to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, the union spokeman said.

Guess Who Just Infested Ferguson, MO…

Applying the adage made infamous by current Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, “never let a serious crisis go to waste,” Chicago communist radicals have infiltrated Ferguson, MO, viewing the unrest as an opportunity to further the group’s goal of destroying capitalism through violent revolution and bringing forth their communist dreams.

Monday, the Revolution CLUB Chicago posted the following message on their public Facebook wall:

As reported by Infowars, communist agitators from Chicago, Obama’s home town that houses the headquarters for the Communist Party USA, have joined forces with the racist New Black Panther group in instigating much of the violent rioting and looting in the area:
“There’s a lot of buzz on the ground about a communist group that was bused into Ferguson from Chicago,” reports the News Commenter. “They provoked the police with Molotov cocktails the night of August 13th while the local protesters peacefully protested. That’s when police responded with gas and flash grenades. Their reported goal is to make the protests go super-violent, spread across the region, and spark a revolution. They are said to visibly stand out from the local protesters in how they respond to police and intimidate reporters when photos and video are taken of them.”
In 2012, “Obama’s favorite congressman,” Chicago Democrat Danny Davis, received a lifetime achievement award from the Communist Party USA. “He is one of the greatest congressmen in the country,” said Obama. “He shares our values.”
