A SMALL, SMALL WORLD: For Kid Who Robbed Rahm's Son, Uptown Homicides Hit Close To Home

A couple of days before 20-year-old North Side rapper Shaquon “Young Pappy” Thomas was shot to death on an Uptown street last week, cops saw Thomas and several other bangers hanging out on CHA property in the 4400 block of Racine.

Knowing that the crew didn’t live at the facility, officers attempted to conduct a field interview. But Thomas wasn’t having it.

“Fuck that,” Thomas said before running into the complex with his buddies.

When the cops ran into the building after them, the officers came across a friend of Young Pappy who is also banned from the CHA complex.

It was none other than Phillip Payne, the 18-year-old who pleaded guilty to robbing Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s son last year.

Payne was arrested for trespassing—child's play compared to the Class X felony charge of manufacturing/delivering cocaine on CHA property that he is facing after being arrested on Easter Sunday.

"Not A Violent Person"

When Payne received probation for mugging Emanuel’s son, the sentencing judge told him, “You are capable of doing well in your life,” adding later, “Phillip is not a violent person.”

Maybe. But violence seems to be very close by. (That's his recent Facebook cover pic you're looking at above. Can you spot non-violent Phillip? Hint: His finger is on a trigger.)

Young Pappy was the second person in Payne's circle to be gunned down in Uptown this spring. Payne’s brother, Boshaun Jackson, was shot dead on April 30.

  1. The P-Stones aren't violent, but they sure make good targets. Chalk another one up for the Vice Lords.

    1. The only thing more frightening than that photo is Young Pappy's video "Homicide"

    2. Man, they'll let just about anyone mumble over a generic, stock audio loop for 3 minutes with the n-word peppered throughout and call themselves a "rapper" these days. Sad.

  4. Dear neighbors -
    Those youngsters are just funnin while at church camp. Such high-jinx! It happens all the time in most great cities like ours.
    I'll bet they can raise money for good causes! Even late at night.
    And it's so nice to see them out enjoying one of our many fine parks too. I'll just bet there are some excellent athletes practicing their running in that high-spirited group.
    So while you're out to breakfast here in the neighborhood (be sure to pick a well known and super well run locally-owned place) take the time to remind your friends that crime is down. Our elected officials are doing such a fine job. Be sure to remind your friends of that too.
    And maybe buy one of those young pranksters a cinnamon bun. I'm sure they'd take it.
    Stay happy!

  6. Hopefully Rahm's kid learned to score his drugs from safer dealers in the future.

  7. http://chicago.suntimes.com/news-chicago/7/71/425851/18-year-old-pleads-guilty-mugging-mayor-emanuels-son

    To be clear Phillip Payne:

    1. was convicted of possessing a stolen vehicle in September '14... and given 1 yr of probation
    2. was convicted of robbing the mayor's son in Feb '15... and given 3 yrs of probation and released
    3. was arrested for crack possession in Apr' '15, with charges upgraded to drug dealing... and released on $10K bond
    4. was arrested LAST WEEK for trespassing in the same housing project that he was drug dealing in six weeks ago.

    ... All in addition to being a blatant and obvious danger to our city given his known gang membership and the photos above. Do you think he has a license for that gun?

    CAN WE PUT THIS SCUMBAG AWAY YET????? OR WHAT IS THE POINT OF PROBATION????? GEE WHERE DID AN 18 YR OLD DRUG DEALING GANG MEMBER GET THE 10K FOR BAIL I WONDER?????

    Cook County Judge Lori Wolfson provided the sentence in the case relating to robbing the mayor's son.

  8. Dear neighbors -
    This picture is an obvious photoshop job, meant to shock and alarm you.
    How do we know?
    Well, first of all there are only three individuals brandishing handguns. Three. Obvious fake.
    Plus, they're not from one of the two acknowledged gangs in our area. Obvious. Fake.
    See there. All better.
    Stay happy in our great city my friends.
    Have a cinnamon roll!

  9. I think you meant "CHA property..." not "CTA property in the 4400 block of Racine."

  15. It's long past time the state and feds cooperated on another RICO house-cleaning of the city's gangs. These thugs are known to be in organized criminal gangs, and are known to be engaged in criminal activity -- so when one of these scumbags commits a felony, why on earth are all their fellow gang members not being rounded up and RICO'd into prison all at once? That's what it took way back when to send all the gang leaders to prison in one fell swoop -- we're WAY overdue for another sweep.
