Idiot With a Chip on His Shoulder

| August 13, 2019

Idiot fires off (rifle/black weapon) outside Jesse Brown VA Medical Center in Chicago. (No, I have no idea exactly what he was carrying, just that vague description.)

He was immediately taken down by the VA hospital’s police. Nobody hurt, no explanation so far.

From the article: As of Monday evening, the suspect was being interviewed by Chicago police detectives at Area Central headquarters.

Any criminal charges against him would be brought on the federal level, as the hospital is operated by the Department of Veterans Affairs. Sallet said the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Illinois was “evaluating” charges Monday evening.

Lori Lohar, the hospital’s acting director, said the suspect is “believed not to be a veteran.” Tom Ahern, a spokesman for the CPD, said the suspect has a criminal history and is associated with several addresses. – article.

Just some disgruntled twit with a record and a chip on his shoulder decides he’s going to “do something” and “get famous”… or something like that, so he goes and shoots at a building that happens to be a VA medical center. I’m sure there is more to come on this. So far, info is sketchy, but we have to get Mayor Lightfoot to a microphone in front of TV cameras so that she can speak about it.

    You must be correct Ex. No info to be released til her dishonor Ma Damn Mayor can get some cameras to roll. Perp blurred out? ‘cuse me, Alleged suspect blurred out. “Heavy black rifle shotgun”?? Dahell?? “Weapon was recovered.”

    Read both linkies; seems like the popo just did the arrestin. From one of the articles, the medic convinced nut job to “give it up.”

    No wonder Sister Mary Grace took off to go fishing.

      The only thing I can come up with was that he was looking for a target, e.g., a bunch of people, and found it. Glad it was NOT a school.

    Democrats call for banning everything…

    Sounds like one of the walking wounded in the war on drugs.
    Bad choice of targets, federal instead of state/city. Reminds me of Charlie Manson – attempted to cash a stolen check. 6 months as a state offense.. but he stole an SS check from a post office box and took it across the state line to cash it in Reno – three federal offenses, so he served 17 years.

      Robbing a gas station is a federal crime.
      Motor Fuel sales are interstate commerce.
      Even a mom and pop convience store that has a single manual pump will suffice.
      Nobody said criminals were smart though.


      The funniest Charlie tale I have ever heared…. He became a Scientologist in the 70’s and undertook over 120hrs of ‘auditing’. Charlie then quit Scientology after declaring it “too crazy”.
      Scientology is too crazy for Charlie Manson but apparently it seems perfectly sane to Tom Cruise, Travolta ect. LMFAO 🤣

    It happened in Chicongo thus I’m sure that they’ll screech for yet more Gun Laws while they blame President Trump and the NRA.

    Was he dressed all in black?

    This VA hospital is on the Chicago west side, which I learned early is the baddest of the bad part of town.

    I grew up in a small farming town close to the Iowa border with Illinois. In 1976, fresh from Berlin as an new Army Recruiter working nearby in a western suburb and wearing civvies, I went to visit a classmate at his recruiting station not far from where the VA hospital is now located.

    Getting out of my Chevy Chevette, a city cop screeched to a stop across the street and over his PA, asked if I was lost.

    Next I went into the station and they told me my buddy was in the busy diner next door. When I walked in there, all conversation stopped and everybody stared. My buddy let them know I was with him and conversation resumed.

    Heard he was looking to do a more “realistic” fake assault on Jessie Smollet….

  8. UpNorth says:

    If the SAC of the Chiraq FBI field office really said, “the offender was carrying an assault rifle“, he ought to be flogged. He should know better, and if he doesn’t, maybe a veteran could educate him.
    Channel 2 news, meh, they just further the narrative, scary black gun=assault rifle.
    And, one of the witnesses said he was carrying a shotgun, not an “assault rifle”, “I saw the guy run in there with a long, black — I don’t know what kind of shotgun it was — and he went into the pharmacy”.
