(Rogers Park) - It's now official. What I've been reporting all day has ended in what can only be described as total shame for our Rogers Park community.
James Brown, who lives in the 3200 block of North Central Park Avenue, was pronounced dead at 2:40 p.m. at St. Francis Hospital, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office, after being gunned down at 6822 North Ashland Avenue.
Yet, all the internet community on Everyblock Rogers Park can do is bitch to each other under anonymous names, as to why James Brown was where he was at, when he got shot by people in a moving silver 4 door Grand Prix - with Indiana plates on it.
I don't know which is sadder? James Brown got murdered today in broad daylight - or all the community cared about was property values decreasing.
It's only a matter of time before I'm reporting on some sort of street shrine being placed at the site of the murder. Then, the anonymous internet neighbors will have something else to bitch about.
