For you non-Americans, it's the typical beginning of summer in Chicago : baby bunnies and robins in the parks, the first corn for sale, and the slaughter in the 'hood picks up.

 

CHICAGO (STMW/WBBM) ― Eight people were killed in at least 44 others were shot across the city Friday night into early Monday, including a baby girl who suffered a graze wound to the neck when gunfire erupted at a Near West Side barbecue.

 

Those killed included a 29-year-old man found shot in the chest about 3 a.m. Monday in the 7500 block of South Halsted Street near a South Side church, according to Gresham District police. A passing motorist found the man, who was dressed in women's clothing, lying dead on the sidewalk. He remained unidentified Monday morning, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's office.

Chicago

Hog Butcher for the World,

Tool Maker, Stacker of Wheat,

Player with Railroads and the Nation's Freight Handler;

Stormy, husky, brawling,

City of the Big Shoulders:

They tell me you are wicked and I believe them, for I have seen your painted women under the gas lamps luring the farm boys.

And they tell me you are crooked and I answer: Yes, it is true I have seen the gunman kill and go free to kill again.

And they tell me you are brutal and my reply is: On the faces of women and children I have seen the marks of wanton hunger.

And having answered so I turn once more to those who sneer at this my city, and I give them back the sneer and say to them:

Come and show me another city with lifted head singing so proud to be alive and coarse and strong and cunning.

Flinging magnetic curses amid the toil of piling job on job, here is a tall bold slugger set vivid against the little soft cities;

Fierce as a dog with tongue lapping for action, cunning as a savage pitted against the wilderness,

Bareheaded,

Shoveling,

Wrecking,

Planning,

Building, breaking, rebuilding,

Under the smoke, dust all over his mouth, laughing with white teeth,

Under the terrible burden of destiny laughing as a young man laughs,

Laughing even as an ignorant fighter laughs who has never lost a battle,

Bragging and laughing that under his wrist is the pulse, and under his ribs the heart of the people, Laughing!

Laughing the stormy, husky, brawling laughter of Youth, half-naked, sweating, proud to be Hog Butcher, Tool Maker, Stacker of Wheat, Player with Railroads and Freight Handler to the Nation.

WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah - A woman was undergoing a mental evaluation Tuesday after police say she stole two vehicles, including a police cruiser, and led officers on a chase through two Salt Lake City suburbs — all while naked.

 

Police Capt. Tom McLachlan said doctors do not believe drugs or alcohol led to the woman's erratic behavior, which also included running through sage brush.

Cops: Siblings Brawl Over Butter in Mac and Cheese

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Published: June 23, 2010

 

Filed at 9:22 p.m. ET

WATERVILLE, Wash. (AP) -- An argument over butter in a macaroni and cheese recipe churned into violence between a brother and sister. A 21-year-old man called police June 6 to say his 17-year-old sister tried to cut his neck with the serrated edge of a spatula.

The police report said the sister was making macaroni and cheese when her brother asked if she was using butter. That led to an argument over the difference between butter and margarine. And, then butter battle escalated.

The Wenatchee World reported the girl was charged in Douglas County Superior Court with fourth-degree assault.

COBB COUNTY, Ga. -- A Marietta man admitted to a deadly attack on his neighbor using a knife and fork.

Richard Smith will spend life in prison after he pleaded guilty to murder on Wednesday. Prosecutors said in 2008 he killed his neighbor, 42-year-old George Nelson, during a fight over money.

 

Officials said Nelson gave Smith a $100 check for posing in pornographic photographs, but Smith had trouble trying to cash it.

 

A bloody fingerprint at the scene of the killing matched Smith, police said.

Epic lunacy in the desert.

http://www.lvrj.com/news/utah-man-faces-charges-after-naked-rampage-on-interstate-97255199.html

 

Highway Patrol Lt. Robert Garner said investigators haven't figured out the reasons behind the Cano's behavior. Toxicology results were pending Friday.

 

"We're investigating the possibility that this may have been a drug-induced type of thing, but that's still under investigation," Garner said.

 

When he was arrested, Cano's "utterances were irrational and alluded to fear and paranoia," according to an arrest affidavit released Friday.

 

The Highway Patrol first got word of Cano at about 9:15 p.m. Wednesday, when callers reported an eastbound driver swerving on the interstate. Cano then pulled over and allowed the car to roll into a ditch while he was running into the roadway naked, according to the affidavit.

 

Cano got back in his car and rammed another vehicle off the road before stopping his car in the middle of the interstate, according to the Highway Patrol. He then forced his way into the car of a woman who had come to a stop along with other traffic that was blocked by Cano's car, police said.

 

Cano found a lawfully concealed handgun in the car's back seat and fired two shots, one that narrowly missed the woman's head and another than went out the passenger window, the affidavit said. Cano left the woman's vehicle and fired another shot in an unknown direction before getting into his car and driving east another mile, the affidavit said.

 

Cano stopped again in a roadside ditch, ran across the highway in traffic and picked up an object and threw it at a passing vehicle, breaking the driver's side window, the affidavit said.

 

Police say Cano then lay on his back in the left lane of traffic. When a passing motorist attempted to help Cano to his feet, Cano stabbed the man in the leg with a sharp object. Garner said Friday investigators don't know what Cano used to stab the man. The victim was bandaged at the scene.

 

That's when a Highway Patrol trooper arrived and was able to subdue Cano with the help of four passing truckers.

"Don't listen to God. He is not real. Listen to Allah," the man yelled.

The incomprehensible incident took place on September 2 last year. Hans and his mate Alexander J. met in the afternoon in the centre of Neuss, a town near Dusseldorf where they began drinking. The court heard the defendant then unbuttoned the trousers of his friend who was sleeping on the couch, and began fondling his genitals. When the fondling failed to provoke any physical response from Alexander, Hans became furious…

 

The prosecutor said: “He twisted the scrotum repeatedly until it broke. Then he took the testicles and hurled them from the window.”

Douai, France (CNN) -- French prosecutors said Thursday they charged a woman with murder after she admitted giving birth to and smothering eight babies over a 17-year period in northern France. * The case came to light when a couple gardening in their backyard in the northern town of Villers-au-Tertre found two babies' bodies in sealed plastic bags and called police.

 

Police spoke to Cottrez and her husband, who had previously lived in the home, and Cottrez admitted immediately that she was the mother of the two babies, Vaillant said. She then told police about six others concealed in their garage, Vaillant said.

 

Those six bodies were also in sealed plastic bags but were covered by various objects, he said.

An aunt babysitting her young nieces in Katonah Saturday night has been arrested and charged with stabbing them multiple times in their legs and backs. Lisa Turkki, 39, of East Syracuse, N.Y., was caring for the 7- and 9-year-old girls while their parents, Joseph and Eva Kelly, were at the nearby Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts. * No previous violent incidents had occurred among family members, friends said. The home lies on a bucolic stretch of road between the hamlet of Katonah and Bedford village that is dotted with upscale residences, including several major estates. Martha Stewart's home, a 153-acre farm she purchased in 2000, is across the street.
