Stop Shooting! Please?
- Prominent South Side pastor Corey Brooks is calling on Chicagoans — and especially gangbangers — to put down their guns and stop the shooting this Labor Day weekend.
Brooks and promoters Asa Powell and Victor Woods said they talked with gang leaders for three weeks to try to assure a violence-free Labor Day.
“Our hope and our goal is to make sure that this weekend if filled with nothing but peace, celebration and love,” Brooks said during a rally in Pioneer Court, after walking with 125 people from Roosevelt Road and Michigan Avenue to Tribune Tower.
Hey, you! Doctors and lawyers! Put that shit down. Don't you know you're not supposed to shoot this weekend?
Hey!? You damn Concealed Carry advocates! Haven't you caused enough pain and bloodshed?
And gosh darn it! Haven't you wine-besotted housewives learned anything from watching reruns of the Oprah show? Put down the guns!
That ought to do it.
In the meantime, any bets on the over/under?
