    Bad: Chicago City Worker Shot in Back for Attaching Boot to Vintage Car

    CHICAGO — A worker for the city of Chicago who was putting a Denver boot on a vintage auto was shot in the back after a confrontation with the car's owner.

    Police spokeswoman Monique Bond says the Department of Revenue worker was in serious condition in Northwestern Memorial Hospital after the attack Monday in the South Chicago neighborhood.

    Investigators say they are looking for the car's registered owner after the victim identified him as his attacker.

    Bond said police recovered three .22-caliber shell casings believed to be from the gun used in the crime.

    According to police, there has been a spike in violent crime in the South Chicago neighborhood. As a result of gun violence, the district has the city's highest murder rate so far this year.

    As has been said before . . .

    "This news story must be wrong, because Chicago bans guns!"

    Can't have a gun if they're banned, right? So this must actually be a case of someone just throwing bullets by hand.

    Any vintage car worth shooting someone over is too valuable to be parked on the street.

    ... or a law against aggravated assault.

    ... or a law against attempted murder.

    ... or a law against menacing/intimization.

    ... or a law against interfering with the legitimate business of an officer of the law (or "meter maid").

    IMHO, reduction of crime is not his primary goal, nor is it most libs.

    Primary goal is power and control over his/their subjects, uh, I mean citizens.

    I'm sure he has one himself. It's probably just a shocker that somebody ELSE has one.

    This is obviously a false story. These types of thing just flat DO NOT happen in the fair city of Chicago.
