Crazy People Are Dangerous: Violence Results in Arrests at Chicago Gay Bar

Posted on | March 9, 2019 | Comments Off on Crazy People Are Dangerous: Violence Results in Arrests at Chicago Gay Bar

Nothing good ever happens at 4 a.m. on Sunday in Chicago, especially if you’re in a North Side gay bar called Jackhammer:

Chicago police were called to Jackhammer at 4:24 a.m. Sunday for a report of several people fighting in front of the bar.
Teri Yaki, a Chicago drag performer, captured video showing patrons leaving the bar and then fighting on the sidewalk. Police are called, and a doorman can be heard turning away new customers: “We’re done. Absolutely done.” Exiting patrons are told to use a secondary door to avoid the fight.
Police arrived and 22-year-old Itsi Mayra Tovar, a transgender woman, was taken into custody after a 50-year-old patron of the bar signed a complaint that she “struck him on the top of the head with a closed fist, causing pain and a small bump,” according to a CPD spokesperson.
While Tovar was being taken into custody, 21-year-old Shelby Lynn Morris, who later identified herself to police as transgender, interfered with the arrest and grabbed a police sergeant’s arm, the CPD spokesperson said. Morris was arrested and charged with battery and resisting or obstructing police.
A police unit remained outside of Jackhammer to maintain the peace until the bar was emptied out at its usual 5 a.m. closing time, according to dispatch records.
Within hours, allegations of anti-trans and racist behavior by club personnel began making the rounds online . . .

You can read the whole thing, but my advice is to avoid Chicago altogether. Between Jussie Smollett’s fake hate crime and this kind of deranged violence, the city is just too crazy.
