Couple battered in South Loop

This is crazy:

We walk through this area all the time, even at night, and shop at this Jewel occasionally.

If you watch to the video clip the reporter mentioned that someone said that the man who was attacked said to "go get a job" towads the homeless couple, but denies saying that.

That would explain the attack as being provoked, although no words should ever warrant getting kicked the face.

Did you look at their rap sheet and criminal history? I don't care if they were told to F*ck off after asking for smokes. Assult, battery, and robbery are not viable options. Odds are the reason they asked for the smokes was just to set up the mark. The reason they are homeless is because they are scum. $500,000 bond... well they have a nice home now. BTW, when I first saw the pictures I thought they were both men. Crack does your body good... Yuck...

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

I wasn't saying I agreed with the attackers.
I was saying that generally when there is fire there was a match....
The homeless people said something... The people said something back... and then it escalated...

His... story of they asked for a smoke we said no so they beat the shit out of us doesn't add up...

Homeless people = HP
Asses Kicked = AK
HP asked for a smoke...
AK said "why dont you get a job you loser"
HP "fuck yo couch n*gga!"

That sounds plausible to me...
The first one sounds like he doesn't want to admit he had even 1% fault in the matter... which makes him sound more guilty...

In the end.. It doesn't matter... No matter what was said to them there was no call for doing that to that woman.. Sometimes homeless people don't have the best grasp on appropriate reaction... Many of them aren't quite right in the head... Like shooting someone for slapping you... Not an appropriate response.

Some people are missing that part of their brain...

fire that's a .50
those are a buck or two a round at a show.. 17$ a round at cabelas...
overkill anyway... 30 06 is cheaper.. and works 99% of the time.. hell even if you have to use two.. still cheaper

Maybe I didn't phrase that properly. Look at their rap sheet. This wasn't directed at homeless people. I am generally quite concerned about the plight of the homeless and jobless. It is directed at two specific individuals. These 2 individuals are homeless because they specifically are scum.

"Burgess and King have long criminal histories.

Burgess has three previous felony convictions for aggravated battery to a police officer and drug-related charges, according to court records. She also has six misdemeanor convictions and 20 failures to appear in court, the records show. King has five misdemeanor convictions for domestic battery, theft, criminal trespassing and criminal damage to property and has been arrested an additional four times for crimes including domestic battery and battery, but charges were later dropped, prosecutors said."

I am VERY intolerant of violent crime with or without the specific use of a weapon. I'm especially intolerant of kicking a woman's teeth out while she is lying helpless on the ground during said crime.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

750 points for a genital shot

250 all other torso/limbs
100 for grazing shots

10,000 points if you can bag two of them with one shot.

Homeless doesn't equal violent criminal with multiple felony counts for battery.

Who knows what happened? Maybe something was said. I'm sure something was said that triggered the previous violent responses too. I've know victims of violent crime. None deserved what happend to them and in a couple cases their lives were forever messed up. I'm sticking with my scum assessment till I see hard evidence otherwise. Unfortunately there are evil messed up people walking around out there. I have better things to do than try to rationalize why a multiple time felon does anything. Most around here think I'm a bleeding heart liberal and wants to change the world. That's true, but I save my concerns and efforts for those that can benefit from it. There is a line I will not cross.

I respect your concerns and thoughts. It is quite noble. Don't read too much into my comments. Give them their day in court and a fair trial. If convicted throw away the f*cking key. (I wouldn't say no to kicking out their teeth either...)

Hmmm... on a personal threat level, the homeless are very similar to zombies.

They aren't very fast, they aren't very well coordinated (due to the drugs/booze), their bodies are falling apart, they smell like excrement and rotting flesh, their clothes are tattered and they wander the streets searching for what they hunger for:


CHANGE!!!



BRAINS!!!

I would have ramboed that fawking homeless guys ass. Pulling his adams apple out from his throat.

wheres the douchbags that want to legalize drugs too. Have more fawking homeless lowlifes on the street begging for more money so they can get high.


Cops cant do shiet because douchbag voters/politicians do their bullshiet "change" which will not change anything. Fix the system and than the cops can do something.


Theres a difference between homeless people that are either retarded/handicapped/unlucky vs douchbags that fawking steal etc... and do drugs. I'll cut their heads off and feed the zombies.
