The Chicago Tribune reports a trail of blood remained in a Northwest Side alley and on the bumper of a car, left behind from 16-year-old Kevin Rivera as he unsuccessfully attempted to outrun a gunman on a bicycle.
But Christ, how do you put a positive spin on that? He tried to escape the guy shooting at him on a bicycle.
Crime's been down something like thirty four percent this year, and then you get punched in the gut by something like this.
