5/9/12: SIX CARS SHOT ON CHICAGO SKYWAY; SHUT DOWN

Breaking news was reported late Wednesday evening, which had police authorities baffled.  The Chicago Skyway was temporarily shut down after six cars received mysterious gun shots, directly into their windshields.  A witness reported seeing a man in a hoodie leaving the scene, but this had not yet been confirmed.

Amazingly enough only one person was injured by glass from their shattered windshield and no one was shot.  The Skyway was closed in both directions between 88th and 106th while police hunted for the shooter, but it was reportedly reopened about 10:20pm.

The heightened violence happening throughout the city even before summer hits, is very concerning.  Typically shootings rise as the warmer weather arrives and we are early in the season.

Let’s hope the shooter is caught and the violence is under control before the peak and the Nato Summit, or it will make for a long summer.

When will the violence end…

2012: INDIANA COUPLE STRAPS KIDS TO ROOF OF CAR; ARRESTED AND CHARGED, STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES

A Fort Wayne Indiana couple is in hot water after being arrested for strapping their four kids to the roof of their car.  A witness reported them to police after seeing them put their small children ages 4 to 7 years old, on the top of their car before driving away.  And yes…they were spotted in a liquor store parking lot.

Luckily a U.S. Marshal caught them a few blocks away and discovered the driver, Aaron Stefanski was driving under the influence.  The couple confessed “they thought it would be funny”.  Obviously they were intoxicated and probably high to think the decision to put their children in harm’s way was a joke.

Stefanski and Jessica Clark are both facing felony neglect charges and for very good reason.  Did they get the idea from Mitt Romney who strapped his dog to the roof too?  Probably so…which was also a bad idea.

Some people just don’t deserve to be parents.  What were they thinking?  This is exactly why the saying goes….”say no to drugs and alcohol”.  Stupid is as stupid does…and getting high makes people stupid.
