- A Chicago Muslim woman was sentenced to four years of PROBATION for throwing her newborn baby out the window.
- Uddin gave birth to a 7-pound, 11-ounce girl in her bedroom at 11:20 p.m. while her 10-year-old sister slept in the same room. Minutes later, Uddin heard her mother approaching the room, so she opened the window, held the baby out head first and released her, according to the prosecutor.
From ABC 7 Chicago:
Uddin, a Muslim of Pakistani descent, hid the pregnancy from her parents because she thought they wouldn’t approve, Turnock said.
The only people who knew were her boyfriend-who her parents didn’t approve of; and another friend. She hid the pregnancy by wearing baggy clothes and never sought prenatal care.
Uddin gave birth to a 7-pound, 11-ounce girl in her bedroom at 11:20 p.m. while her 10-year-old sister slept in the same room, Turnock said.
Minutes later, Uddin heard her mother approaching the room, so she opened the window, held the baby out head first and released her, according to the prosecutor.
Judge Carol Howard sentenced Uddin to 48 months’ probation and ordered her to pay a $579 fine. She was given credit for 603 days served in the Cook County Jail.
“At that moment she probably wasn’t thinking and she cracked … because the Mubashra I know wouldn’t do something like this if she was in right state of mind,” Uddin’s childhood friend, “Nina O,” wrote in a letter to Cook County Judge James Brown.
“Standing before you is someone who is heartbroken and sad. … She is a confused, older teenager,” her attorney Barry Sheppard said at her bond hearing. “She’s extremely contrite. She’s saddened. She’s been crying.”
A former school counselor described Uddin as a model student and a “sweetheart.”
- The toll comes as the Chicago Police Department added roughly 1,300 police officers to work each day since Friday to patrol the violent neighborhoods
- Shootings still persisted in two of the city’s traditionally most violent police districts, Englewood and Harrison
( Chicago Tribune ) Dozens of people were struck by gunfire in Chicago, some of them fatally, during the traditionally violent Fourth of July weekend, mostly in parts of the South and West sides that have long been plagued by gang crime and gun violence.
From Friday afternoon through Tuesday afternoon, about 60 people were shot with eight of them killed, according to data kept by the Tribune.
The toll comes as the Chicago Police Department added roughly 1,300 police officers to work each day since Friday to patrol the violent neighborhoods, the parks, the CTA transit system and the lakefront, where large crowds formed to celebrate the holiday and watch fireworks.
This year’s shooting toll was similar to recent Fourth of July weekends, though direct comparisons are difficult because the holiday fell on a Tuesday this year. The shootings this year occurred in communities long beset by violence such as Roseland, Greater Grand Crossing and Back of the Yards on the South Side and East Garfield Park, Austin and North Lawndale on the West Side.
Shootings still persisted in two of the city’s traditionally most violent police districts, Englewood and Harrison. This is despite a new crime-fighting initiative in those districts that includes technology designed to better detect where gunshots are coming from and enable officers to respond more quickly to gunfire.
Englewood, Chicago demographic:
Chicago is facing bankruptcy but it doesn’t stop Democrat politicians in Chicago from paying for and placing a statue in front of Trump Tower in Chicago that says ‘Fake News’.
On Friday, a genius Trump supporter put a CNN logo sign on the ‘Real Fake’ sculpture.
4Chan posted pictures of dozens of expensive, unmarked, buses took to Chicago filled with “protestors” holding uniform and expensively printed signs. Thousands of people have recently taken to the streets of Chicago to protest the current minimum wage and demand an increase to $15/hr.
Yesterday, hundreds of paid protesters went to McDonalds headquarters and Trump tower for their protests:
MANHUNT AFTER TWO CHICAGO COPS SHOT WHILE INSIDE VEHICLE AT HIGH-CRIME BACK OF THE YARDS NEIGHBORHOOD
Two Chicago police officers were shot and wounded late Tuesday when two vehicles pulled up alongside their car and someone started firing indiscriminately in what authorities believe was a targeted attack.
One officer was shot in the arm and hip and the other in the back, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said. Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson visited them at Stroger Hospital and said both were alert and expected to recover.
‘We believe that the officers were definitely targeted,’ Guglielmi said.
The shooting happened in the Back of the Yards neighborhood, a high crime area on the city’s South Side.
The officers were conducting a follow up investigation to a previous incident when two vehicles pulled up and those inside began firing. The officers were wearing civilian clothes at the time but had on vests with police badges on them, Guglielmi said.
A manhunt was underway for the suspects and Johnson said police were questioning ‘a few’ people of interest in the case. Johnson said police found several weapons and a vehicle they believe are linked to the shooting.
Chris Villanueva, 36, said he was walking back to his car in a strip mall parking lot south of the shooting scene, when he heard about a dozen rapid-fire shots.
‘I thought it was fireworks maybe, but around here you hear gunshots a lot,’ he told the Chicago Sun-Times. ‘Next thing, cops are everywhere.’
VIDEO OF POLICE DRAGGING BUMPED UNITED AIRLINE PASSENGER AFTER OVERBOOKED FLIGHT TO MAKE ROOM FOR STAFF
Outrageous! An O’Hare airport cop slammed a United Airlines passenger into an arm rest, dragging the bleeding and unconscious Chinese man who was bumped off the overbooked flight to make room for airline’s own staff.
From Daily Mail:
An airport cop who body-slammed a United passenger and dragged him off an overbooked flight was put on leave today – as his bosses condemned his actions amid mounting outrage over video of the incident.
The Chicago Department of Aviation said it ‘obviously’ did not condone the behavior of the security officer who was filmed slamming the man into an arm rest, knocking him unconscious and dragging him away by his arms as he bled from the mouth at O’Hare.
United is facing growing anger after they selected the 69-year-old man – who claimed to be a doctor – to be bumped from the overbooked flight to Louisville to make room for its staff on Sunday night.
The airline’s CEO apologized today even as new video emerged of the man, who had refused to leave the flight, bleeding heavily from the mouth and mumbling about suicide in the aftermath of his brutal treatment.
In the clip, the dazed man chants ‘just kill me, just kill me’ as blood pours from his mouth.
It seems to have been filmed after another clip that shows the victim somehow broke free from the airport cops and ran back onto the plane chanting ‘I need to go home, I need to go home.’
Their statement released on Sunday night said: ‘Aviation Officers arrived on scene attempted to carry the individual off of the flight when he fell. His head subsequently struck an armrest causing injuries to his face.’
It claimed that the man had begun yelling his displeasure at being selected to leave and was taken to hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
Today the department retreated from the statement, referring all enquiries to the Aviation Department.

HOW DOES UNITED DECIDE WHO GETS BUMPED FROM OVERBOOKED FLIGHTS?
United’s contract of carriage states that passengers to be forcibly taken off a flight in the event of overbooking will be ‘determined based on a passenger’s fare class, itinerary, status of frequent flyer program membership, and the time in which the passenger presents him/herself for check-in without advanced seat assignment.’
That means that if you have a certain type of fare class, checked in early, have a flier status such as gold, or even just own a barely used frequent flier card, you are less likely to be bumped.
But passengers taking advantage of budget seats appear to be of less value to the airline
Support for the current president of the United States forced two Chicago music store owners to close their business because of threats and negative publicity they were receiving.
Suzzanne Monk and Alexander Duvel own “Worlds of Music Chicago” but will be shuttering their brick-and-mortar business in April because of extenuating circumstances, they told “Fox & Friends Weekend.”
‘Two choices for Trump supporters in Chicago: Be silent or be bullied’
So, after 25 years, after a lifetime for my husband, we have to leave. In the end, it wasn’t the high taxes, constant road construction or high crime. It wasn’t the unchecked gang violence or political cronyism. In the end, we have to leave because of the hate you are willing to tolerate.
I’d like to say, it’s not you, it’s me—but Chicago, I’ve got to be honest . . . it’s you. You’ve changed. You are no longer the nose-to-the-grindstone hardworking Democratic City of the Big Shoulders. You have a Trump-sized chip on that big shoulder, and it has turned you into a city of fear, hate and division. A city that encourages political bullying.
