Sgt. Willie Cook, Survives War Over There

Indiana National Guardsman Sgt. Willie Cook was a member of National Guard unit 713. And he survived Afghanistan, but was killed near his grandmother’s East Chicago house. The hero died shielding his two-year-old son Antoine Cook from fifteen bullets.

  1. And today, Chicago will host the Illinois Politburo meeting on gun violence w/the Chairman of the Central Committee himself leading the demigoguery. Other members in attendance will be The Rahmfather, Sen. Dick Turbin, Gov. Pat Quinocchio and ex-Boston cop & Chicago Chief of Police, Jenny McCarthy. Doubtless they will address the wildly successful Chicago strictest-in-the-nation handgun ban (comparable in its success only with The District of Columbia’s), while endlessly photo-oping with survivors like Snooki at an all-you-can-eat kegger. After they leave, the ambulance races will continue as before.

    “That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
    And then is heard no more: it is a tale
    Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
    Signifying nothing.”

  2. It is the measure of the man who would act in such a way, a noble act of sacrifice.

    Now to the search in hand; leave no stone unturned and bring those responsible to justice .

    Yours Aye.

  3. I’m trying to see anything good in this tragedy, but the best I can come up with is a hope that the intended target isn’t some criminal low life but a decent man who might have a chance at survival having been warned by this, but that feels like a long shot. Thinking about it makes me more sad than I’ve been for months, which is hardly much compared to the poor, heroic man’s family.
