Yet another US shooting


Recommended Posts

My friend is on holiday just now in Chicago, Schaumburg or something, its the next town over from this place, visiting relatives. They had planned to do a 4th July party etc. Heard from him and they didnt take the kids there but think just all the places are cancelling parties and parades etc.

They are. The Mayor of Evanston's just been on the TV saying they're cancelling theirs so they're not going to have to use first responder resources that might be needed in Highland Park.

Americans shot celebrating Independence Day, their fates enabled by rules enacted by a bunch of slaveowners a few years later, and wildly misinterpreted 246 years later by the Supreme Court.

Seems to cover it accurately.

Just give it 5 mins. Chicago has several mass shootings each weekend.

Highland Park is the suburban dream every American has been sold though, children allowed to play and cycle around the neighbourhood unsupervised, last drive by shooting was in 1844.

That's only two and a half hours ago

What’s worst is that most Americans don’t give a f**k even if they hear about it and life will go on. “That’s sad”, “Bad stuff happens all the time” or “it’s irrelevant to me” attitude

It’ll be plastered across the British news so people on here will be more interested that majority America.

Suspect named as Robert Crimo III, still at large.

A Bob Crimo ran for mayor of Highland Park a couple of years ago. Could be his son?

It is. NBC briefly broadcast some cops talking to a woman who was screaming hysterically in her front yard a couple hours back and Mrs Bob is the spit of that lady from her social media pics. 

ETA - he's been pulled in. Genius took the highway fleeing to Wisconsin and his car pinged at an electronic toll plaza.
