Expecting a Call?

Second City Cop is a blog run by a Chicago police officer.  We check in every once in a while to hear an officer's perspective of that city's politics and attempts to control crime.  If this topic interests you, we highly recommend checking him out.

He links to a Chicago Tribune story about crime.  It includes photos and videos.  This photo of a Gangster Disciple carrying his perforated comrade out of a church caught our eye.

We know it's been a while since a suit and tie were worn to a funeral in that neighborhood.  But when did taking a call become ok?

The Tribune mentions a father once, in their use of a shot and killed 6-month old.  But the Tribune avoids the common issue of the missing father in the victims' lives.  (Because that would start the conversation that leads to better lives...) They mention "single family homes" at the 6:20 mark of the first video, but it is in a LIST OF REASONS for killing that include "warmer weather".  Lost in the list...
