A man was shot dead after being accused by his killer of intentionally pouring water over his sister. Jimmy Parker from Chicago was confronted by Charles Sims, and shot eight times after denying any wrongdoing. Sims' sister had claimed that Parker had targeted her, however police investigations revealed that a faulty air conditioning unit was to blame for the spill. Upon learning of his sister's plight, Sims approached Parker, who having rejected the accusation, was punched and then shot repeatedly with a 9mm handgun. Chicago Police Detective Anthony Noradin said that Sims allegedly stood over Parker to 'finish him off.' Noradin revealed: 'He administered a coup de grace of sorts.' Six witnesses have identified Sims as the shooter, and he now awaits trial despite denying any involvement.

More peace and love in the land of Obama.
I didn’t need to see the picture— and all I got wrong was the hairstyle. (WTF is that— Li’l Topsy?)
I even had the facial expression right in my mind’s eye.
Gene pool... shallow end.
That’s what happens when you let poor people have air conditioners
He’s a good boy, never hurt nobody, just turning his life around, a good baby daddy to all of his babies... This is just another example of the system failing young black men...
OK sarcasm off.
Even a “non faulty” window AC unit can build up enough condensation water in high-humidity conditions to slop over the side.
You can get shot for even joking about that down here in Texas right now. Hell its so hot down here mosquitos are carrying canteens. The catfish have ticks.
Even feeding chickens crushed ice to stop em from layin hard boiled eggs !
Maybe he was standing under the dripping air conditioner.
More Midwestern family values...
We're actually culling some chickens that quit laying because it's so hot. I'm eating chicken again tomorrow.
I think you could hatch eggs without a chicken setting on them. I work outside until 0900 local, and start back up at about 2000 local.
I’ll give up my air conditioner when they peel my cold ..........................hell, you know where I’m going.
“and all I got wrong was the hairstyle.”
Yo, dat be Buckwheat on a bad hair day!/s;)
I blame da white man fo’ designin’ dem air conditioners so’s they drip water on the brotha’ man!!!/s;)
Two lives destroyed over a dripping AC unit! Unbelievable.

Here as well...we had yard bird twice this weekend. Neighbor has a coop with some leghorns an gave us a few for helping her cut cordwood last spring ....
Barter is better !
Sister called police at midnight after feeling water dripping on her (when returning home). Now excuse me, how could a few drips (or even a small steady stream) warrant calling the police?.....or telling your brother who has a 9mm and obviously a hair-trigger temper to help you fix your problem of dripping water (OUTSIDE????)
I’m sorry, this story could not have happened. Everybody knows there are no guns in Chicago.
A Rasta man....
The ‘do gives it away
Has anyone else noticed that most of the decent reporting
of the news comes from the U.K.?
Don’t the Amish shun modern contraptions like AC? /s
I less Obama voter...one less welfare recipient. I don’t see any down side!
This is the time of year I build my annual shrine to this guy, Willis Haviland Carrier, who invented modern AC.
I wouldn't bet on either one. This is Chicago we are talking about.
The ruling elite in Chicago think it wise to keep everybody disarmed so that folks like Sims can get their way with a minimum of gunfire.
Last year we remodled an installed double stud framing on the interior shell of our home an expanding foam insulation. Sort of a beer cooler design per se.
We use whole house fans to use cool evening air. Swamp coolers when humidity is low. Central heat an air for muggy days an window air conditioners as backups.
I agree as to the heros of the AC world.
Stay Chilly !
Yo...you don’t be disrespectin’ me...Yo!
His defense you ask?
“Yo...it don’t be my fault yo...I be oppressed....yo!”
Certainly didn’t vote of McCain-Palin, did he?
It’s Obama’s Chicago. What did you expect?
“Two lives destroyed over a dripping AC unit! Unbelievable.”
The killer (will spend the rest of this life in jail, thus dead) and the one killed equal two, even with my limited math skills.
This story is obviously a fantasy. Only police are allowed to have guns in Chicago. Unless this guy was an undercover cop, it isn’t possible that he shot anyone. Maybe he stabbed him 8 times with a weapon that produced holes that resembled bullet holes.
“The killer (will spend the rest of this life in jail, thus dead) and the one killed equal two, even with my limited math skills.”
I count people ,NOT Animals in the clothes of man!
You’re just full of surprises aren’t you?
I just don’t know what can be done with these parasites.....
“I just dont know what can be done with these parasites.....”
They serve no useful function and when pushed, play the victim,The pandering must stop and let a dose of reality run it’s course over the inflated egos.
What was the solution when the kids had lice?
You know the answer you just don’t want to say it out loud.
How romantic and matriarchal.
Regarding the fly on his lip, with that, he could be in spaghetti westerns.
This happened in Chicago? So, why don’t they just ban handguns, and keep this kind of thing from happening again.
