    Sad day in Chicago.
    A guy goes to work. Actually trying to keep people safe by performing fire suppression inspections and service. Then gets caught in crossfire just trying to do his job and make a life. Shame on you cowards for your lack of respect. You all claim it’s a “respect thing”. Well you had no respect for anybody that was close to you when you decided to open fire. So I hope really soon you get locked up and get disrespected in jail, thug/punk wannabee gangsters.

        The police isn’t doing anything about the shootings in Chicago. They don’t care . This shooting wasn’t gang related. Gang related is the 1st thing that the police tells media. That’s the best way for them to sweep is under the rug.
