This city is doomed!
According to a Tuesday 3:29 a.m. police newsflash, officers were warned to use extreme caution when patrolling the 6300 block of South Artesian Avenue on Chicago's South Side.
Apparently, the Gangster Disciples have set up security checkpoints in the area and they are stopping random cars at gunpoint.
Here’s how it goes down: One or more people approach the cars from the front, armed with rifles.
Once the cars are stopped, additional gang members approach the cars from the side and order the occupants out of the vehicles.
Then, the occupants are frisked and asked about their gang affiliations.
So far, no injuries or robberies have been reported, said the newsflash.
At 3:33 a.m., while I was in the midst of writing this report, an officer near 63rd and Artesian requested backup.
The officer said there was a large group of people loitering in the area.
What in the hell is happening in Chicago?!
