One Man Crime Wave (Allegedly)


The AK-47 tattooed on Kelsky Patterson's forehead may be truth in advertising.

He has already been charged with the shooting of the 14-year-old boy at Wilson and Broadway over Labor Day weekend.

Today he was charged with the murder of a man and the shooting of four others at Uptown Baptist Church in August.

So in two weeks, he is charged with the murder of one, the maiming of another (who had to have amputations due to his injuries), shooting a young man in the head, and injuring three four others.  (We forgot about the additional person injured when the 14-year-old was shot in the head.)

Busy couple weeks for the 21-year-old, who gives his address as one in Bronzeville.  We hope, if found guilty, that he has lots of time in prison to reflect on "What I Did Last Summer."

Lesson One:  It's not hoards of people terrorizing Uptown.  It's a few people who have no regard for the community, its residents, or anyone except themselves and their gang alliance.

Lesson Two:  When someone has a firing weapon tattooed on his face, believe what he's saying with that.

More from the Tribune and ABC7 websites.

  3. Jason/Irish-like Pirate,

    people who call others douches are by definition douches themselves. The exception being people who point this out. You douche.

    Porch, yes he is an asshole and I suspect he won't walk the streets of Uptown until sometime after 2030 if he doesn't die in jail.

    There are so many great versions of "I fought the law" out there that I can't choose a youtube link. It's a small loss for the readers here who enjoy my links. Thanks to both of you.

  4. To the folks who keep trying to post gang videos, stop it. Blogger won't let us post depictions of violence (terms of service), and in any case, we're not about to start promoting gang propaganda.

  5. I know this isn't right and would be a violation of the 1st amendment, among others, but I'd be fine with the police just preemptively throwing everyone with a face tattoo into jail.

  6. "people who call others douches are by definition douches themselves. The exception being people who point this out. You douche."

    Per your logic, I guess you are a douche also.

    Anyway, despite IP pure distain for me, I am glad this guy is off the streets. And his cute little dino tattoo.

    1. You made an amusing typo. diSTAIN. Dat's U.

      Come on Jason, lighten up. It's a beautiful evening. Kelsky is behind bars and hundreds of people turned out at the Rizal Center on Irving to help pack supplies for the Filipino relief effort.

      Sometimes life is ok.

  8. How come a Bronzeville ganger is in Uptown?

    Busy couple weeks for the 21-year-old, who gives his address as one in Bronzeville. We hope, if found guilty, that he has lots of time in prison to reflect on "What I Did Last Summer."

    ^^ You can say that about gang fights Period. The news makes it seem that every other person is a ganger in Chicago.
