michael scott + murdered = chicago violence must stop

November 16, 2009



The body of Chicago school board President Michael Scott was found floating in the Chicago river. His death comes as a suprising twist of fate as the well known administrator had vanished hours before.

According to police, Scott’s body was found near the Merchandise Mart early Monday in the River North neighborhood with a gunshot wound to the head.

Scott was reported missing from his home in Monroe Sunday. His blue Cadillac was found nearby and towed away from the scene. An autopsy will be performed today to determine the exact cause of death.

His good friend Reverend Jesse Jackson spoke out about his friend’s death to local news outlets saying,

“Everyone thought Michael was their guy. People are so very sad. .. . The suddenness of it all — midday has become midnight. The sun has been eclipsed.”

Is it just me or does it seem like violence is growing rampantly in Chicago? This is ridiculous! Something’s gotta change.

    A lot of things have “got” to change. They won’t, though, because civility has Left The Building, and shows no sign of returning.

    Anyway, I bet this isn’t just a robbery. He pissed off someone he shouldn’t have pissed off.
