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.

Hat Tip Billy

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