greety DCFS case workers care more about money than Kids


Let me give you some faces DCFS Neglected to care for while these children where on their watch.
A personal touch from the victim I know
You ask how I know cause I am also know a victim of DCFS. Below are sencitive pictures and a video of my friend.                             Click here to watch a victim of DCFS tell his story




Mom threw boiling water on him while a DCFS agent was present
Hoping to stave off planned layoffs, more than 300 Illinois child-protection workers called for Gov. Pat Quinn to save their jobs during a rally Wednesday in downtown Chicago.

“Who protects the children?” the demonstrators chanted. “We do! Save jobs! Save the kids!”

The rally at the Thompson Center was held less than two weeks before 375 positions at the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services are due to be eliminated.

A nearly $90 million cut in the agency’s budget this fiscal year has forced the layoffs.

DCFS Director Richard Calica said he has no choice but to cut caseworkers in the voluntary intact family services program, credited with helping to reduce foster care rolls through linking struggling parents with needed services.

Members of the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees said that without the program the alternative is to remove those at-risk kids from their homes at greater expense to the state.


Was taken away from parents who abused drugs now she is dead

Quinn signed the state budget in July but proposed shifting about $57 million to DCFS in savings that he said could come from his plan to close some state prisons and juvenile facilities.

His recommendation, though, needs legislative approval. Lawmakers, some opposed to closing facilities in their districts, won’t return to Springfield until after the layoffs in late November.

“I think children are far more important than keeping half-empty facilities open,” Quinn told reporters Wednesday. “I think it’s much better to help people than keep facilities open that aren’t needed.”

The demonstrators were joined by some Chicago Teachers Union organizers, who spoke of strength in solidarity.

Tammy Harvey, a longtime DCFS employee, clutched a doll that workers use when interviewing children as a tool to demonstrate abuse. She said her job is on the chopping block.

“I always say this job is like a calling,” she said through tears. “You really have to care about people and want to help them to make the change that will keep their family together.”

Last year, 4,600 families with more than 14,000 children received intact family services. DCFS workers handled 80 percent of the cases while the remaining 20 percent were referred to private agencies.

The Tribune reported earlier this month DCFS plans to lay off all state intact family workers and direct private agencies to handle all future cases.

At least 1,500 fewer families will receive the voluntary services as a result, the newspaper found, a 33 percent reduction. Calica agreed more kids will be removed from their homes as an alternative.

“Without us, vulnerable and needy families will be left without what is sometimes the only support they have,” said Sharon Moriarty-Cordin, who said this is the fourth time she has faced a layoff in her 12 years at DCFS.

DCFS administrators estimate 285 workers will lose their jobs along with another nearly 100 unfilled positions. There’s a chance administrators could delays

Chicago police horses injured during break-in at stable

 
Horse break-in
 

 

A Chicago Police horse named "J.R." is seen in a stable used by the Chicago Police Mounted Unit on the South Side of Chicago. Most of the horses in the stable were let loose from their stalls during a break-in and "J.R." was sprayed with a fire extinguisher, causing swelling to his eyes. (Terrence Antonio James, Chicago Tribune / September 17, 2012)
 
A fire extinguisher was used to injure two Chicago Police Department horses that were among about 30 let loose from their stalls during a break-in Sunday night at a stable in Chicago's South Shore community, police said.
A 20-year-old horse named J.R. suffered swelling to the eye after being sprayed with a fire extinguisher, and a horse named Schott was hit on the back of its right leg and flank, apparently with the same extinguisher, police said.
"The incident has upset a lot of people here," said Lt. Paul Bauer, commander of the department's mounted patrol unit. "The horses were very agitated and fearful. You can imagine the trauma they endured."
Bauer said both horses "are doing fine" after being given the day off.
"Just today they were off the street," he said, predicting they would be back on duty Tuesday.
Officers assigned to the mounted unit had returned to the stable on the grounds of the South Shore Cultural Center about 11:15 p.m. Sunday and found 27 of the stable's 30 horses out of their stalls, Bauer said. They were circling inside the stable's arena, and some were shaking, he said.
Bauer's own horse was involved, he said.
The officers searched the area and discovered that a rear window had been used to get inside, Bauer said. No arrests had been made as of Monday evening.
Officer Mike Clisham, a trainer at the mounted unit, treated both horses.
J.R.'s eyes were "flushed'' out, and he was given an eye ointment and a shot to ease the swelling, Clisham said.
"The eyes were the worst of everything,'' Clisham said.
He also took care of Schott's cuts.
"This morning they were a little nervous,'' Clisham said of the two horses.
Schott is named after police Officer Richard R. Schott, who suffered a fatal heart attack in December 1997 while struggling with a prisoner at the Deering District lockup on the South Side, according to the Officer Down Memorial Page, a website devoted to police who died in the line of duty. Of the other horses injured was the newest horse to the unit named Mikey who is named after the fallen Forensic Tech Micheal Flisk who was killed in the line of duty collecting evidence from a burglary.
 

McHenry County Deputy was caught with dick in hand

McHenry County sheriff's deputy had sexual contact with the fiancee of a defendant in a drug case the officer investigated, according to an attorney for the defendant.
The allegations come against onetime Detective Jason Novak in the case of a Crystal Lake man who is charged with possession and manufacture or delivery of narcotics.

In response to a question about the allegations, Sheriff Keith Nygren confirmed that Novak was suspended for 10 days and transferred from detective back to patrol, though he did not specify why. Novak could not be reached for comment.

Court documents filed by the defendant's attorney, Hal Stinespring, gave the following account:

In March 2011, the defendant's fiancee, whom he lived with, contacted the McHenry County Sheriff's Department seeking to have unspecified items confiscated from the home.

Novak, who worked in the narcotics division, told the fiancee that if she cooperated with the confiscation, no charges would be filed, the defense motion stated.

At Novak's request, the woman met with him in person at the Sheriff's Department. After that, using his department-issued cellphone, Novak continued to contact the woman, sometimes with text messages of a sexual nature, according to the documents.

On April 28, 2011, McHenry County deputies, including Novak, arrived at the home, and the fiancee signed a consent form to allow them to search the residence. She also was coached on what to say in a written statement, while Novak, whom she called "Slick," questioned her, the defense alleged.

The next day, the woman's fiance was arrested, and as she waited outside jail for him to be released, the documents stated, Novak initiated an exchange of nearly 50 text messages, which became increasingly sexual in nature.

At the officer's request, the woman called him on his police-issued phone, and he gave her directions to his home, the defense alleged. When she arrived there, hours later, she performed a sex act on him, and some of his semen remained on the fiancee's dress, the documents stated. After that, Novak allegedly kept contacting the woman seeking sex.

Stinespring maintained the search and seizure in the case was illegal because it was obtained by deceiving the fiancee. He requested a copy of the sheriff's internal investigation of Novak this summer after his client brought it up. He said the allegations were based on what the fiancee told his client, and that she was interviewed by sheriff's investigators and gave them the dress.

"I think it's definitely misconduct," Stinespring said.

The woman's fiance was charged with having more than 100 pills of various prescription drugs, including narcotics like the painkiller oxycodone and the anti-anxiety drug Xanax, without prescriptions, Assistant State's Attorney Michael Combs said. The most serious charge is a Class X felony punishable by six to 30 years in prison.

The defendant also was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm on allegations he had a 12-gauge Mossberg shotgun. Combs said the defendant was prohibited from owning a firearm because of a 1992 felony conviction for dealing cocaine in Kentucky.

Combs, chief of the criminal division, argued against letting the defense see Novak's personnel file or the results of the internal investigation of the matter, saying they were irrelevant to the charges against the defendant. Judge Sharon Prather said she would review the documents in question and scheduled a ruling for Oct. 18.

While Novak might have violated the sheriff's rules, Combs said he did not believe a crime was committed because the allegation involved consensual sex between adults and did not affect how the case was handled.

NYPD Officer Sentenced in Manhattan Federal Court for Conspiring to Distribute Firearms and Stolen Goods

Preet Bharara, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, announced that GARY ORTIZ, a former New York City Police Department (NYPD) officer, was sentenced today to one year and one day in prison for engaging in a scheme involving the illegal interstate transport of firearms and stolen goods. ORTIZ was sentenced in Manhattan federal court by U.S. District Judge Paul G. Gardephe.

Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said: “Justice has been served today against Gary Ortiz, who tarnished his badge, violated the laws he swore to uphold, and betrayed his fellow officers, the NYPD, and the residents of New York City he swore to protect.”

According to the court filings and statements made in court:

From December 2010 to October 2011, ORTIZ, who joined the conspiracy in February 2011, and his co-conspirators, transported firearms and stolen goods, including cigarettes and other merchandise, across state lines. ORTIZ was an active duty NYPD officer at the time he committed the offenses.

ORTIZ helped steal hundreds of cases of cigarettes from trucks parked outside a warehouse and then transported the stolen cigarettes from Virginia to New York. He also participated in a scheme to transport 20 firearms, including three M-16 rifles, one shotgun, and 16 handguns—the majority of which had been defaced to remove or alter the serial number, and all of which had been disabled—from New Jersey to New York. The total street value of the goods ORTIZ helped transport across state lines was approximately $1 million. In total, ORTIZ was paid $18,000 for his role in the schemes.

In addition to the prison term, Judge Gardephe sentenced ORTIZ, 28, of Brooklyn, New York, to two years of supervised release and ordered him to pay a $200 special assessment fee. ORTIZ also has agreed to a money judgment of $18,000 representing his share of the crime proceeds, and has relinquished his interests in guns that were seized from him at the time of his arrest.

ORTIZ was originally charged in a four-count complaint along with 11 co-conspirators, many of whom were fellow NYPD officers. All of the defendants have now pled guilty, except Ali Oklu, an active duty NYPD officer at the time he allegedly committed the offenses. The charges and allegations against Oklu are merely accusations and he is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

A chart containing the status of each defendant is below.

Mr. Bharara praised the investigative work of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Internal Affairs Bureau of the NYPD.

This case is being handled by the Office’s Public Corruption and Complex Frauds Units. Assistant United States Attorney Carrie H. Cohen is in charge of the prosecution

Texas Mayor thinks his town is the new Crook County

PLANO, TX—Two Collin County, Texas men, including the former mayor of the city of Melissa, have been indicted in connection with a bribery scheme in the Eastern District of Texas, announced U.S. Attorney John M. Bales.

David E. Dorman, 66, of Melissa, Texas, has been charged with extortion, while John Christie, 65, of Frisco, Texas, has been charged with misprision of a felony. The men were named in an indictment returned by a federal grand jury on Sep. 12, 2012.

According to the indictment, in 2007, Dorman, then mayor of the city of Melissa, solicited a $70,000 bribe from Christie in exchange for arranging for the city of Melissa to annex a portion of land from the city of McKinney, Texas, in order for Christie to develop and sell the land to potential customers. Based on a letter from Dorman, the cities of Melissa and McKinney approved the annexation and in exchange, Christie made one $10,000 cash payment and two $10,000 payments by check to Dorman.

If convicted, Dorman faces up to 20 years in federal prison. Christie faces up to three years in federal prison for his role in the scheme.

This case is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Shamoil T. Shipchandler.

A grand jury indictment is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

Prince George’s County Police Officer Sentenced to More Than Five Years

GREENBELT, MD—U.S. District Judge Peter J. Messitte sentenced former Prince George’s County Police Officer Chong Chin Kim, age 44, of Odenton, Maryland, today to five years and a day in prison followed by three years of supervised release for conspiring to commit extortion in connection with a scheme involving the transport and distribution of untaxed cigarettes and for possessing a gun to further a crime of violence. Judge Messitte also entered an order that Kim forfeit $2,661,240.

The sentence was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein; Acting Special Agent in Charge Timothy P. Groh of the Federal Bureau of Investigation; and Special Agent in Charge Rick A. Raven of the Internal Revenue Service-Criminal Investigation, Washington, D.C. Field Office.

“Criminal conspiracies are built on lies and deceit; criminals cannot trust criminals,” said Rick A. Raven, Special Agent in Charge, IRS Criminal Investigation, Washington DC Field Office. “Today’s sentencing is another example that crime really does not pay. IRS Criminal Investigation welcomes opportunities to assist the Department of Justice and their law enforcement partners with dismantling criminal conspiracies profiting from contraband.”

According to his plea agreement, Kim had been a Prince George’s Police officer for 16 years. Between July 2009 and January 2010, Kim conspired with Chun “Eddy” Chen, who owned a carry-out store in Maryland; Amir Miljkovic, who owned a business called Prestige Auto Glass in College Park, Maryland; former Prince George’s County police officer Richard Delabrer; and others to transport and distribute untaxed cigarettes and alcohol in Maryland, Virginia and elsewhere. The conspirators paid Kim and Delabrer to protect the safe transport and distribution of the untaxed cigarettes in Maryland and Virginia.

By July 2009, Delabrer and Miljkovic began purchasing contraband cigarettes from an undercover agent in Virginia, then selling them to Kim and Chen. Miljkovic and Delabrer traveled to Virginia to pick up a rented truck loaded by the undercover agent with the cigarettes, and drove the loads to a storage unit in Maryland obtained by Kim. On at least one occasion, Kim helped unload the cigarettes at his storage facility dressed in his official police uniform, armed with his service weapon and driving a marked police vehicle.

The conspirators bought contraband cigarettes at least 33 times from the undercover agent. Kim was involved in all but one of the transactions. Altogether, Kim and his co-conspirators paid the undercover agent $1,770,230 for more than 17 million contraband cigarettes, resulting in a tax loss attributable to Kim of $2,661,240.

Amir Miljkovic, age 40, and “Eddy” Chen, age 36, both of Bowie, Maryland; Amrik Singh Melhi, age 53, of Clarksville, Maryland; and Jose Moreno, age 51, of Alexandria, Virginia, pleaded guilty to their participation in the extortion conspiracy. Miljkovic was sentenced to 30 months in prison and ordered to pay restitution and forfeit $230,580, including $183,799 which was seized from his home at his arrest. Chen was sentenced to 18 months in prison and ordered to pay restitution and forfeit $213,000, including $117,800 which was seized from his home at his arrest. Amrik Melhi was sentenced to 46 months in prison and ordered to forfeit $975,327.32. Moreno was sentenced to 18 months’ probation.

In a related case, former Prince George’s County Police Officer Sinisa Simic, age 27, and Mirza Kunjundzic, age 32, both of Woodbridge, Virginia, were charged with conspiring to commit extortion in a scheme involving the transportation and distribution of untaxed cigarettes, distribution of cocaine and additional firearms charges. Simic pleaded guilty and awaits sentencing. Kunjundzic is scheduled for trial on November 13, 2012.

United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein praised the FBI and IRS for their work in these investigations. Mr. Rosenstein thanked Assistant United States Attorneys James A. Crowell IV, A. David Copperthite and Sujit Raman, who prosecuted the cases.

Mr. Rosenstein, Mr. Groh, and Mr. Raven expressed their appreciation to Prince George’s County Police Chief Mark Magaw for the assistance that he and his department provided.

Update on Zimmerman case: Trayvon Martin to go under the public microscope

On Friday, Sept. 14, the Orlando Sentinel stated that in response to the defense seeking Trayvon Martin's social media records and school records, which could show behavioral issues and more about the deceased, that the prosecution will release additional records on the accused next week.
The family of the deceased has called the defense's request for personal records as "character assassination" and a "witch hunt," but any criminal defense attorney worth their salt calls it putting on a complete defense for their accused client.
And since George Zimmerman's own life hangs in the balance in a court of law, it seems prudent for the facts to come out about each male's public and private life and records--especially if something in those records could shed better light on the shooting death.
Naturally, an attorney for the Martin family is saying the request for records which may show the Sanford, Florida shooting victim in a negative light is "an attack" on the deceased, as HLN reports.
Yet if nothing derogatory is found on the dead youth, then what harm is there in requesting records that show him as an exemplary young man without any known gang ties or issues about conduct unbecoming?
Wednesday, Sept. 19 appears to be the date the public will get that answer, with the state slated to release their last batch of evidence regarding the shooting that took the life of the youth on school suspension, and the defense finally obtaining all the data from schools sought 10 days earlier.
And while it is generally the case that school records are not released to the public at large, this is also a nationally headline-generating case with racial repercussions that appear to dictate deviating from the norm in order to keep the public better informed about the facts.
George Zimmerman will be tried in a court of law where facts and evidence will either support an acquittal or prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. But he is being tried in the court of public opinion now. And a federal air marshal, who happens to be a friend of the accused, said on the Dr. Phil TV show that some character facts need to be repeated now, the Kansas City Star reports.

Friday, Sept. 14, 10:13 a.m. EDT: Trayvon's dad: He saved my life: "I think the most heart-wrenching part is knowing that he saved my life and on that fatal day I wasn't there to save his life," Tracy Martin said in a Dr. Phil show interview this week, describing the time his 9-year-old son dragged him from the house to save him from a fire.
Thursday, Sept. 13, 10:45 a.m. EDT: In an episode set to air nationally on Friday, Dr. Phil McGraw offers counseling to Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, the Orlando Sentinel reports. In a statement, McGraw said of the parents of the slain teen, "They're left with the questions about what should they or could they have done to prevent this. They're trying to make sense out of this tragic loss, and they're lost."
Wednesday, Sept. 12, 11:05 a.m. EDT: Zimmerman's friend writes book to defend "most hated man in America": Mark Osterman, 44, the friend George Zimmerman's wife, Shellie, first called for help on Feb. 26, when her husband shot unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin, has written a book about his "heartbroken and devastated" friend, the Miami Herald reports.
Sept. 11, 9:13 a.m. EDT: Zimmerman lawyers accused of "witch hunt": After last week's announcement by George Zimmerman's defense team that they had subpoenaed Florida teen Trayvon Martin's entire school file from the Miami-Dade public school district -- including test scores, any disciplinary actions and attendance records-- Trayvon's attorney Ben Crump told Reuters, "I think certainly it is a witch hunt to try to find something to attack the character of a dead child, and it's completely irrelevant because his school records had nothing to do with him [George Zimmerman] shooting Trayvon Martin in the heart on February 26."

Chicago homicide hits as the worst city in the world

 
How many guns does it take to end the killings on Chicago's streets. I will tell you this on Sept 9 2012 ABC News reported that more people died this year allone compaired to the shootings in Kabul, and Iraq combined. This is sad that the state of Illinois and the City of Chicago politicians are gun carrying cowards. They can carry but we the people can not. Something you fucks should learn United we stand divided we fall. We the people are united you the politician will fall. It is time you step down from officer or be forced out with a younger generation. We the people need not to back down from government but they need to bow down and kiss our ass.

Convicted murder dies what a shame he never made it to the table for leatal injection

man sentenced to 40 years in prison for killing a man during a home invasion in 1998 died of blood poisoning and the so-called flesh-eating bacteria, an autopsy has found.
Robert J. Turner, 32, died Friday at the University of Illinois Medical Center at Chicago's intensive care unit after he was transferred there last Wednesday, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.

Turner was on a medical furlough from the Dixon Correctional Center and was being treated for a number of maladies, including cirrhosis of the liver, authorities said.

An autopsy performed Sunday determined that Turner died of necrotizing fasciitis -- more commonly called the flesh-eating bacteria -- and sepsis and his death was ruled natural, according to the medical examiner's office.

The flesh-eating disorder is a rare but severe type of infection that can destroy the muscles, skin and other underlying tissue.

Turner was 18 when he and two other men were charged with the shooting death of Derek Miles, 18.

Chicago police said Turner and the other men confronted Miles and two companions on the street and demanded money. After Miles and his companions could come up with only $15, one of victims offered to hand over valuables stored in Miles' home.

The victims and robbers went to the home in the 6200 block of South Albany Avenue, police said. While the three suspects collected stereo equipment and other items, Miles slipped away and got a gun from another part of the house.

When Miles returned and confronted the three men, police said someone fired several shots and killed Miles.

Officials from the Illinois Department of Corrections weren't immediately available for comment this morning.

Teachers are going to be forced back to work


Below is the news article on the CTU and CPS Strike. This is wrong although valid of a strike kids are out of class. They are not learning anything at home this is one of the reasons why there is a high drop out rate. If I was the Governor you would be like the cops and firemen. They can not stike under federal law and your asses should not be allowed to strike while school is in session.
 
If there are any CPS teacher's out there did you know while your on strike 1/2 of your class rooms are now getting criminal records and learning some of their constitutional rights by use of the court instead of a class. You all should be fired you have failed to meet the demand of the tax payer who pay your salaries. I hope a court ruling forces you back to work. I also hope you violate that order so we can lock you up.
Chicago teachers back on the picket line this morning pleaded with parents for patience, even as Mayor Rahm Emanuel says he has had enough and is going to court to force an end to the strike now in its second week.
"Parents need to understand," David Temkin, a social worker for Chicago Public Schools, said as he stood outside school headquarters. "We want better schools. Unfortunately, this is the only way we can fight."
Chicago Teachers Union president Karen Lewis met for nearly three hours Sunday with the union's House of Delegates to review a tentative contract that had been brokered after months of negotiation. But the delegates decided to extend the strike at least two more days to give them more time to consider the deal. Several said they were dissatisfied with some of the terms.To read more click here

Drew Peterson Guilty or not

Well Drew Peterson was arrested on May 7 2009. He was tried and found guilty on Sep 6 2012. Well let me educate everyone see all of you forgot someof the stuff you were taught in school. It is apparent that politicians deffenitly do.
Like always another Illinois Politician violates civil rights.
Illinois politics violate your right to carry a gun, violate your rights under the 14th Amendment when it comes to speed and redlight tickets, and now the idiot pictured to the left violated the 6th Amendment. How you ask well I'll tell you. The 6th Amendment entitles you to a fair a speedy trial which means you can not sit in jail for more than 160 days and on that 160th day the state must do one of two things prosecute you or let you go with double jepordy attached. If your out on bond then they have 120 days to do the same. so the next time you go to traffic court pay attention unless you need legal counsil your in and out the same day speedy trial 6th Amendment Judges in traffic court play with it every day thelawyers also hope you forget that part of the law so you can sit for 3 years before going to trial. Drew Peterson Guilty or not does not matter he was held for more than 160 days and the case should be over turned and double jepordy attached just because Will County failed to prosecute him with in the time frame defined by the Constitution.

True News USA reported this on their site

 


Two men facing charges of robbing Red Line riders appeared in bond court Sunday.

Sherman Wilson, 55, of the 7400 block of North Ashland Avenue, brandished a silver knife on the Red Line headed toward Howard Street, demanding that a rider hand over his wallet, cellphone and watch, authorities said. Wilson struggled with the victim, pushing him to the ground and taking his watch, prosecutors said.

Wilson was arrested Thursday when a Chicago Transit Authority security guard recognized him from surveillance video of the Red Line attack, prosecutors said. Sherman was arrested at the Jarvis Avenue station in Rogers Park. Chicago Police News Affairs did not have information about when the robbery occurred.

Another alleged CTA robber, Justin Harris, 17, of the 500 block of West 81st Place, was arrested Saturday night after snatching an iPhone out of a woman's hand, prosecutors said. The woman chased Harris out of the Red Line station at 79th Street. She waved down police on foot patrol, and the trio caught up to Harris in a nearby parking lot, prosecutors said.

Wilson was charged with felony armed robbery and is being held in lieu of $250,000 bond. Harris is charged with robbery. The amount of his bail was not available.

24 shot in Laborday Weekend

Why is it people can not be just people we can not even have a holiday with out someone getting shot. It is high time the Mayor stepped aside and higher as many people he can and waive the highering process by highering security officer's who surpass state qualifications and that the city already trained to write anovs, parking, streets and sanitation ticket and that worked housing. Then the state should open it up to a CWP. This will do two things 1 allow cops to be cops by kicking in doors of every gang member arrest him and charge him as either domestic terrorist or treason. The 2nd will allow people to protect themself. Below is an Article from WFLD on the 24 shot garentee there are more to come.
 
At least 24 people have been shot – two fatally – around the city since Friday night.
The shootings include:
A 38-year-old man who was found slumped over the wheel of his vehicle, dead of multiple gunshot wounds, near an elementary school in the South Side Calumet Heights neighborhood early Sunday.

Four people, including an 11-year-old girl, were shot and wounded late Sunday when a gunman opened fire at a family party in the Pill Hill neighborhood on the city's South Side, Chicago police said.

The 10:45 p.m. shooting in the 9100 block of South Chappel Avenue was only a block from the scene of a fatal shooting earlier in the day, though police said it was too soon to tell if they were connected.
 
The victims were among a larger crowd of partygoers outside the home on South Chappel, police said, citing early reports. The family barbecue was winding down with revelers gathered in the front and back yards of the home when a lone gunman emerged from a gangway across the street and opened fire, police said.

The victims included a 16-year-old boy who was wounded in the back and an 18-year-old man struck in the right elbow, police said.

A 51-year-old woman was wounded in the buttocks, while the girl suffered a graze wound to the left calf.

The girl was taken by a relative to nearby Advocate Trinity Hospital, while the other three were hospitalized. By 3 a.m., all of the victims were listed in good condition, police said.

After firing numerous shots, the shooter escaped through the gangway and remained at-large this morning. Police had only a vague description of the gunman and no clear motive for the shooting.

Officers at the scene dismissed an earlier report that two gunmen were present at the shooting.

Statistically, the tiny Pill Hill neighborhood has one of the lowest crime rates of any South Side neighborhood, according to Chicago police numbers. Including Sunday's slaying of a 38-year-old man, Pill Hill -- named because of its past popularity among doctors -- has had only two homicides dating back to 2008, according to Tribune homicide numbers.

Cops shoot TECH -9 wielding monkey




Chicago police wounded a man they saw wielding a TEC-9 pistol at the Altgeld Gardens housing complex on the city's Far South Side, authorities said late Sunday.

No officers were injured in the incident, which occurred just before 9 p.m. in the 13100 block of South Langley Avenue, according to police and the Fraternal Order of Police, which represents rank-and-file officers.

Two Calumet District officers were on routine patrol in the area when they spotted a man standing near a fenced area on South Langley and approached him for a street interview, said Pat Camden, an FOP spokesman.

As the officers approached, the man walked away quickly, prompting the officers to split up to cut off the man's retreat, Camden said.

The officers followed the man into a fenced-off area where they saw him "barricade himself" behind a dumpster, appearing to raise and lower a firearm behind it, Camden said.

The officers identified themselves and demanded the man drop his weapon, Camden said.

When the man refused, continuing to raise and lower the weapon, one of the officers fired a shot, Camden said.

The shot hit the man in the foot and the man was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn with non-serious injuries.

Camden said that police recovered the TEC-9 at the scene, while police in a prepared statement identified it only as an "assault weapon."

The Independent Police Review Authority is investigating the shooting, police said.
