No national headlines or outcry, so I assume it's Black on Black crime.

Just another average day in the Windy City.

How’re those “Chicago values” working out for all those Chicagoans out there?

Just asking.

Little Mouse Gets Smoked - The Video That Has Chicago Talk Radio In An Uproar This Morning

This video was done by a 13 year old boy in Chicago, and it perfectly demonstrates the gang bang mentality in Chicago which has caused the murder rate to skyrocket 40% in Chicago just this year.

 

This video glorifies gang-banger violence, drugs, murder, and the gang "lifestyle."


 

Amazing. Sound likes a village is missing its Community Organizer.

To Chicago politicians, a few more black deaths are not important. Their mayor is working on bigger things - like keeping Chik-Fil-A out of Chicago.

Did one take place in the drive-thru at dreaded Chick-Fil-A?

I don't have that figure but one positive was the reduction in July 2012 compared to July 2011. Only 49 killed compared to 55. Add it to possible vacation spots.

"July ended Tuesday with 49 homicides, down from 55 homicides in July 2011. This is the first year-over-year decrease in homicides since August 2011, RedEye determined."

All these murders in Chicago means less votes for Obama. Keep ‘em comin’ thugs.

Was talking to someone in Chicago yesterday and we were discussing this an he noted this is the result of the police doing such a good job arresting all the previous drug king pins all of these are the young kids taking over the drug business - says all this shooting and killing is being done is a 2-3 block radius as these kids are trying to take over the drug trade.

Hey, here’s a question for Anderson Cooper, who has been running all to wall White Power stories the last few days:

Who is a bigger threat to America, a handful of “white power” nuts, or this garbage?

It's Chicago. The fact that the voters are dead doesn't stop them from voting for Obama.

I'm still skeptical that this was really a shooting since guns are illegal in Chicago.

“...a 27-year-old man sitting with friends in front of a home... at 3:45 AM? Oh right, don’t have to get up and go to work or anything like that.... Get an AH-64 Apache street sweeper and clean up the trash.
