    So official looking. 6-7 people scouring the grounds.

    But honestly – that’s some pitiful looking brass!

    One was already stepped on, the others look like end-of-life reloads!

    I recommend using some walnut shell media and some brass polish in the tumbler.

    Ya’lls shooting skills SUCK!

  4. Summary Below on June 19, 2019 at 1:43 pm

    I think we all know what is going on. I’ll give a quick summary.

    Group of black dudes fired a gun at a specific black dude they was beefin’ wit. But they hold the gun sideways like they seen in the movies. So they missed.

    Group of black dudes that had shots fired at them, then had to retaliate.

    You’re welcome.

      So the perps are caught and the story is now known.

      You were right about the colors – but that was a given.

      Looks like “Shonita” was another naming curse come to fruition.

      And you feel your summation is that simple?

      All wrapped up in a nice and neat little story package.

      It goes much further than “black dudes having a beefin’ wit”.

      Why not tell the rest of the story that innocent people, senior citizens, small children playing outside in the yards were terrified when bullets came flying pass them or into their homes thru walls and windows.

      Because of those “black dudes having a beefin’ wit” innocent people mostly senior citizens on fixed incomes must now find the money to pay for the property damage that was done.

      It is a damn shame that the 7 honorable young men and women that all grew up on that small street were not at home or visiting their families while this was occurring.

      All 7 of them have served and protected our country covering multiple back to back tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. So they are a little sensitive to loud unexpected noises especially the sound of gun fire.

      One or more of those 7 would have without hesitation provided these “black dudes having a beefin’ wit” a life altering lesson on proper usage of a fire arm and what dead on target accuracy means during the course of protecting their own families and neighbors.

      With that being said Thank God no one was killed or injured that day and I pray that St. Mary’s Sheriff’s personnel are kept safe in the course of their duties and quickly apprehend these “black dudes having a beefin’ wit” thug mentality gutter rats and put them behind bars where all “black dudes having a beefin’ wit” animals belong.

        If you are gonna quote the clearly sarcastic summary, at least get it right. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul

    Wait….shots fired? In LPC area??? No way, I don’t believe it.

    The “L” Park lords are taking over our city, might be a good idea to call Chicago P.D for some help

    Was the firearm legally registered? If a handgun, did the bearer(s) have a hql and carry permit? When known, please report this information.

    Maybe there wasn’t much info to pass to the public SMNEWSNET. Perhaps if the community was policing themselves and helping the police, crimes like these would get solved quicker and criminals would think twice about committing heinous acts there. I know, it’s too much to ask.

    Probably just another bunch of rednecks who just purchased their guns from the tackle box, and wanted to try them out
