Here is the description of the perps, courtesy of the Sun-Times which seemed to have no trouble getting it: "One of the offenders is described as a black male, 30 to 40, last seen wearing a gray Aviax jacket. The second man is described as a thin black male, 30 to 40, last seen wearing a black jacket and skullcap." Hardly a vague description, I would say.

Dude -- when the press doesn't mention a race, it means that they were Caucasian.
Wrongo. They were black. The Sun-Times had no trouble saying so. Either the Tribune didn't have enough information before they put their article up, or they've got their own hang-ups.

When this sort of thing happened in the old west, men with balls would gather up in a posse and get the scum who did this, after word of mouth got around, why not try this again? Oh that's right king daley and his ally mayors' don't want citizens protecting themselves. I for one are for a modern posse, anyone willing? Do you have the balls? I hope these scum pay!

At the end of the day, who cares what race the perpetrators were, except for the purpose of making the description less "vague" and enabling them to be captured. As for the shooting, it's news because it is so uncommon in Lake Bluff, but it shouldn't happen anywhere.

Wow, this sounds eerily like the Brown's Chicken murders. Eat your food, case the place, then rob it. Lucky nobody got executed in a walk-in cooler this time...

Time for you to wake up.

The Old West is over, done with, gone, history.

A modern posse?

Oh dear.

You're sounding like OJ Simpson--and look what's happened to him and his "gang."

No thanks to your invitation.
