Taxed Enough Already? This Man Thinks He Is!
"I Don't Mind A Parasite. I Object To A Cut-Rate One."

Take Me To Post Comment Form


I try to keep up with the local news from my original hometown of Chicago, Illinois - The Home Of the Bears. This solid blue city and state are among the highest taxers in the nation. One man got fed up with it the other day and let his feelings be known at a local convenience store. Perhaps he's now spending time in the hoosegow thinking that he'd be better off joining the Tea Party than doing what he did.

Here's the story, courtesy of the Chicago Sun-Times:

"Angry over 22-cent tax on soda, man pulls out submachine gun in store: police

Nahshon Shelton didn’t want to pay the 22-cent tax on his $1.79 two-liter of Pepsi on Saturday afternoon, Chicago Police said.

So he allegedly pulled a blue-steel Intratec .22-caliber submachine gun out of his Gucci satchel inside the convenience store in the 4000 block of West Madison Street where they tried to make him pay it — and he threatened to kill everyone there, a prosecutor said.

This “is my neighborhood, I’m tax exempt!” he would later allegedly tell the cops. “Man, you know what, I’ll keep it real. I had to put them in their place.”

Shelton, 36, of the 4200 block of West Carroll, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, unlawful use of a weapon by a felon and having an invalid FOID card.

Cook County Judge Peggy Chiampas ordered Shelton held without bail Sunday for the incident that allegedly took place around 1:45 p.m.

Assistant State’s Attorney Claire Savaglio said police saw Shelton yelling at the victims when they answered a report of a man with a gun there.

“I’m going to shoot you in the head three times,” Shelton allegedly told one person.

“I’m going to smoke your @$$,” he allegedly told another.

Savaglio said the whole thing was caught on video surveillance. She said Shelton’s gun had eight live rounds in one magazine, five live rounds in another and one in the chamber."

I especially like the part where Shelton pulls the submachine gun "out of his Gucci satchel."
