PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT.

DO NOT DO THIS. DO NOT FOLLOW THESE GESTURES. DO NOT REPLICATE THESE GESTURES. DO NOT PERFORM THESE GESTURES IN PUBLIC. THEY ARE ACTUAL GANG SIGNS. 

POKEMON GO IS NOT SOMETHING THAT SHOULD HAVE THESE IN THE FIRST PLACE. WE DO NOT WANT THE PUBLIC TO SEE TEAMS MYSTIC/VALOR/INSTINCT AS GANGS.

 IF WE DO ANYTHING GANG RELATED, THIS WILL DO NOTHING MORE THAN HAVE POKEMON GO TAKEN AWAY FOR GOOD.

I REPEAT. WE. ARE. NOT. GANGS. WE DO NOT NEED SIGNS. WE DO NOT NEED HAND GESTURES. WE ARE NOT. GANGS.

iN ADDITION, THESE GANG SIGNS, WILL IN FACT, GET YOU SHOT. DO NOT PERFORM THESE GESTURES IN PUBLIC.

In 1980s Scotland, there were dangerous gang wars between rival ice cream truck drivers. The Glasgow Ice Cream Wars erupted when drivers began delivering other items with their ice cream to low-income housing developments, like groceries, toilet paper, and drugs and stolen goods. The scuffles over territory eventually escalated from violence and arson to murder. Source

32 Year Old Chicago Activist, Leonore Draper, Fatally Shot After Anti-Violence Event

A Chicago woman is shot and killed moments after attending an anti-violence event that she helped organize.

Police officers heard the gunshots around 10:30 Friday night in the 1300 block of West 116th in the West Pullman neighborhood.

A budget analyst for Chicago Public Schools and a freelance make-up artist, 32-year-old Leonore Draper was committed to fighting gun violence on Chicago’s city streets.

On the committee of an anti-violence non-profit called A Charitable Confection, Draper was coming home from a fundraiser Friday night when she was shot and killed while sitting in her car on Chicago’s Far South Side.

“She was sitting in the car dropping her husband off who is handicapped,” said neighbor Andrew Loss. “Some little girl was taking the man into the house. Then when the little girl came back out the lady, she was dead.”

Police are still investigating the circumstances, but say it was after 10:30 Friday when they heard gunshots near the 1300 block of West 116th Street. After touring the area they found Draper with a gunshot wound to her arm. She was rushed to the hospital, where she later died.

Delk Adams is Draper’s former college roommate and the organizer of Friday night’s fundraiser, which she says was raising money to support a teen run charity that fight’s violence on the city’s South Side.
