Chicago Serenity: Two Gangbangers Shot at Funeral – One Dead


The shooting happened outside St. Columbanus Catholic Church across the street from AA Rayner & Sons Funeral Home in the 300 block of East 71st Street, officials said.(Al Podgorski~Sun-Times)

Two gang-bangers and felons were shot outside a funeral today in Chicago. One man was killed and one man’s hand was blown off.
The Chicago Tribune reported, via Weasel Zippers:

Two reputed gang members were shot at a funeral in the Park Manor neighborhood on the South Side this afternoon, police said, with a minister at the services tweeting afterward, “This is Crazy.”

The two men were shot outside St. Columbanus Church in the 300 block of East 71st Street shortly before 12:30 p.m., across the street from the A.A. Rayner & Sons Funeral Home, police said.

They were taken in critical condition to Stroger, according to Chicago Fire Department spokesman Will Knight. Both victims are convicted felons and known gang members, police said.

The shooting occurred after the funeral, according to the minister who was presiding, the Rev. Corey Brooks.

“I just preached a funeral and gunfire has broke out and I believe people have been shot,” Brooks tweeted. “Please pray I believe people have been hit it is Chaos about 500 people here. This is Crazy!!…

…Brooks said he usually accompanies families out of the church after funerals, but had left by a side door for a radio interview.

“I do know that the shooters were at that funeral,” he said. “From what everyone is saying, those guys came out of the funeral and waited.”

He said a witness told him one of the men raised his hand as he was shot. “One of the guy’s whole hand got shot off because he raised his hand to stop the shot and it shot his hand off,” Brooks said.

And just think, Rahm Emanuel and Barack Obama want to turn the rest of America into this gangbanger’s paradise.
No thanks.

    …Well, you have to admit that the “chicago way” is neat and tidy – what better place to kill someone than in a funeral home !

    A hand blown off ? That is the finale scene from Taxi Driver ( R rated clip )….> http://youtu.be/4WK6AVqUXYg …..Is the pimp business now being run out of the Catholic Church stairwell in Chicago ?

  • Gregor

    Add this to the earlier story of the shoplifter dying after being apprehended by store security and we have more great news of Obama voters dropping like flies. Unfortunately, we all know they continue to vote AFTER being dead.

    Sorry, but-

    Dese guys is gonna make youse an offer you can’t refuse.

    They’re gonna make SURE you spread the wealth in your pocket around, whether it’s by official channels (ie taxation) or via “unofficial” methods (ie, muggers).

    — and you CAN not, MUST not, –not EVER– decline to participate in the joys and delights of “diversity” … coming to a neighborhood near you … because if you try to opt out of being a victim of all that marvelous diversity, several-dozen teams of grievance-mongers will camp on your blog here and call you a raycisss and worse.

    Must be the fault of the NRA and the 2nd Amendment Foundation. Oh, wait. Chicago HAS some of the most restrictive firearms laws in the nation.

    How’s that gun-banning legistlation work’n for ya?

    Isn’t this the city that thinks it will be safer if it restricts firearms from even law abiding citizens? Now the only ones who have guns are the criminals. Studies and history prove that stricter gun laws lead to more crime. Once the criminals know that there will be nobody to defend themselves, they will not think twice about using those weapons.

    In Mexico, only the criminals get to keep their arms while innocent law abiding citizens have no way of fighting back. The same govt. that disarmed the public will now do very little to protect them against the cartels. If the govt. armed the public, the public would then be friendly with the bureaucrats and feel safer. An armed and free public can be a great friend and a powerful ally to any political leader, so long as he respects the right of the average citizen to use deadly force against various forms of evil.

  • e’mani

    Well one thing for sure. These guns aren’t being purchashed from gun stores nor did we bring all the dope over here that has ruined our communities. You see the destruction of our race started centuries ago. Glad Ive raised my boys to get an education and aim at the right people that started all this. My boys will aim with their minds. 40 acres and a mule for all that has been taken stolen and destroyed. Funny how you never see these comments when white folk shoot up the entire school or entire store or kill their kids or all these white men killing their wives and kids…..

    Hey, if low-life cretins and gang bangers have guns, while decent honest Amercians don’t (except for politicians, celelitists and their security) in “Twinkle Toes”‘s city, what’s the problem? This is the best reascon FOR packing heat.

    That’s good you taught your boys to use their heads.. But I see comments all the time about white people killing their own families… My generation & generations long before mine don’t owe you or anyone else for what happened many years ago.. That’s what you were taught though I’m sure.. So get off of it & quit blaming everyone with white skin!!!

  • Peter Warner

    Although the specifics are not detailed in that media description, there is a good chance that some of the blame for this violence and killing can be laid upon the church and minister that conducted this funeral.

    Paul Washer has made some strong statements about Christian leaders who are unwilling to convict sin in their congregation, and instead excuse the ungodly conduct within their flock, by professing that all is forgiven because the believer is ‘saved’. In the face of sinful action and intent, this only serves to excuse and even promote sin. May God forbid such corruption.

    Those who sincerely accept the forgiveness of Christ, must then abide in Him, and separate from ungodliness. Those who lead the congregation, must bear the burden of helping them make that separation, or be doubly condemned for it. True love is not always comfortable or comforting.

    Best regards, Peter Warner.

    Two down —- about half of Chicago to go. The city should be a no fly zone, and the cops should warn visitors like the police do in Detroit. What a hell hole. Even dogs don’t mess in their own turf.

    Welcome to the DemocRATic Plantations of major cities in America, run by corrupt and inept DemocRATs…. Enough said on this subject.

  • Peter Warner

    For bg @21:

    Thank you, and may God bless you for that. It is a great comfort to have some response, and yet even greater when it is in support.

    Let me confess to feeling rather discouraged about my home country and wondering about my future home- it seems about half of my American countrymen have turned their back on God and His Word. I’ve about given up on placing hope in politics, and investing effort in political forums.

    May you and your loved ones have a precious Christmas.

    Funny how some idiots have made this a race issue when anyone with common sense knows this is gang violence. It is no different than a mob hit at a funeral. The killers were certain to catch rivals off guard at the funeral as they did. Anyway, regarding President Obama, he IS your president whether you liike it or not and guess what, white people supported his reelection too. It seems the crackers are just as divided as the minorities! Aren’t you mad ‘us is educated now’ LOL! We have infiltrated politics and took over the US for 8 years! Now that’s gangster! And I’m not mad about the years of slavery. It is clear why the white man was scared of us…Barack Obama! And we are not done yet. Our sons will impregnate your precious white daughters like they did to slaves. The difference is your daughters want the Black man…he’s a beautiful creation. Im done and wont read anymore foolishness. On my way to court to beat another arrogant white attorney in my field! I love the USA!

    The death of the African American in America, extremely violent.

    This is just the beginning,and that is the most unfortunate situation specially in African American communities. We have finally cause problems that the rest of the American community will no tolerate with. The African American community is on their own. The crime rate in all major cities is exclusively caused by African Americans. Statistics indicate that the average African American male or female under the age of 30 is either unemployed on welfare or in jail. We are killing each other stealing from each other wholesale. The white and Hispanic community is no longer willing to trust or positively interact with African Americans for any type of opportunity’s that may be available. We as a people are no longer trusted and not able to blame anyone, but ourselves for our own irresponsible actions .
    We are not taken the opportunities that are readily available,instead these opportunities are being taken by immigrants willing to work to make a better life for themselves.

    [“DAMN”: we have become losers in our own country.]

    A message to all [PARENTS]
    . Take a look at your gangster and thug Children. By Sunday morning one of your children will not come home again , Unfortunately he or she will be Amongst an unnecessary statistic of street death And street violence.

    Again parents are you listening help your children while there alive, because once their dead from street violence your tears will be in vain.

  • YourMaster

    the shooting took place because they found out 0bama had sex with camels…
    and they were fighting over who’s turn it was next after the democrat party got their turn.

  • http://none bill

    To educated colored woman.I’m white and voted for Obama both times. I’m also probably considered a racist. I believe colored folks who make up, what is it 12% of the populatiuon, commit 75% of the crime. also agree that your big black bucks like to empregate white girls and that they(girls) like them big black thangs. You also will probably agree that your black men like to empregnate girls of all colors and move on. I’ll bet you were also raised by a grandmother like most of coored kids. Why do all your athletes drop the black girl who stood by him in high school & college,as soon as he gets his signing bonus, then promptly marries a beautiful white trophy wife? Must really piss you colored chicks off. I know it does.

    You sorry N’s think you are educated because you got a piece of paper from a “school” that has been dumbed down since the 70’s. It has been dumbed down because your people complained that too many of them were flunking out. So the white libs gave in and lowered educational standards so that you bush-people could make it. Congratulations. Next time you go to the hospital I expect you to ask for an EEO doctor to treat you.
