Illinois has pretty tough gun laws, shootings can’t happen there.

Can this possibly be true?

I thought they had guns under control there?

“Demographics

As of the census[3] of 2000, there were 354 people, 136 households, and 99 families residing in the village. The population density was 341.8 people per square mile (131.4/km²). There were 147 housing units at an average density of 141.9 per square mile (54.6/km²). The racial makeup of the village was 100.00% White.”

Sad story. More than 1% of their population killed.

there are not enough details provided to know if it was all locals or not. The report is suspiciously short of details.

I will bet $50 that the shooter did not use an “assault rifle.”

Five dead? Where are the photos of the town on lockdown, and the house to house searches by tactical teams?

Sounds like the Amish to me. Section 8 no doubt.

According to Wikipedia: "The racial makeup of the village was 100.00% White."

So this is apparently a dustup in a racist enclave.

What makes you think that? There are plenty of white folks living in public housing/section 8.

My husband has relatives who live just south of there, Roodhouse and White Hall. I’m glad they have someone in custody.

Dare we raise the dreaded “drug related” words? It could be a turf dispute.

Oh, no, it couldn’t be a drug dispute, drugs are illegal in Chicago and all the rest of Ilinois and maybe even St. Louis.

Rural illinois has a drug problem. We also have, allegedly, highly placed individuals in the justice system here who have looked the other way on occasion. Manchester is not far from here. There is public housing in our area generally, but unless you’re talking Springfield, I’d guess meth had more to do with this than the ‘Amish.”

Do you have some sort of vested interest in denying that white people sometimes live in subsidized housing and are involved in drug related killings? I grew up in a small town in Illinois with no black people and we had a subsidized housing development, plenty of drugs and plenty of violence.

Yeah, almost certainly meth-related. There’s a lot of poor white trash out in those small towns. I grew up with them. One childhood acquaintance is in Menard doing life without parole for murdering his parents and brother and another is on death row in Florida.

LOL! Of course, the illegality of drugs is exactly why people shoot each other over them - there are no shootouts between dealers of the legal drug alcohol.

Not for basic facts like this. If there is a politically sensitive issue, then the pages often get edited with inaccurate info.

It began at 4:30 a.m. Wednesday morning when police responded to a federal housing complex on East Street in Manchester.

Five people at the complex were killed and one – a six-year-old female child – was injured.

The victim then fled the scene in a Chevy Lumina. Just after 7 a.m. a chase between police and the victim ensued and the lone shooting suspect was taken into custody after shots were fired. Police say the suspect “was in possession of multiple weapons” when he was arrested at 7:27. The suspect was then transported to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.

It's interesting that the offensive term of "poor white trash" gets a free pass here on Free Republic. Yet there's the near universal use here of Amish as a euphemism for black thugs. And yes, I realize that Amish here on FR has morphed in meaning over the years from its initial coding of muzzies to also encompass blacks.

As always, dfwgator, you come through! :-) That actually makes some sense in that it follows and parallels the construct of "Amish" for well...you know.
