Chicago Tribune ^ | April 5, 2014 | Peter Nickeas

Posted on 04/05/2014 7:18:42 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement

A pair of gunmen shot six people at a West Side party early Saturday morning - one opened fire toward a back porch from an alley while someone else opened fire from the front door as party goers tried to run inside.

Eight other people were wounded across the city overnight since about 8 p.m.

Frankly to me, this is more culling of the herd.

I knew the Chicago thugs would get the body count back on track after a slow winter.

After a hard night of partying they were just shot. It did sound like a bang up affair though.

I emailed Mayor Rhambo last year asking him to deputize the Million Moms for Gun Control, team them with Baraq’s ATF, and send them into the Chicago ‘hood to clean out the illegal guns.

Never got a reply....

No but the police chief seems to like to pat himself on the back saying he is making progress with regard to guns. Could’ve fooled me!

“pat himself on the back saying he is making progress with regard to guns.”

He just forgot the ending of that phrase, by taking them away from law abiding citizens.

Well, do ‘we’ get to pay for a few funerals

OR

Hit the jackpot and pay to patch up the wounded and send them back into the ‘combat zone’ again

OR

Get to pay for the ‘care’ of a few ‘vegetables’ for the rest of ‘our’ lives.

AND, PLEASE, don’t give me this innocent bystander crap.

IF the ‘surviving victims’ would assist the LEO in the apprehension of the shooters, it would be a different story.

Nothing new, of course, but don’t stonewall the Police who are investigating the ‘problem’ then ‘scream they are not doing enough’ when it directly involves ‘you’.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Speaking of that, I heard a remark the other day that said why should the ‘victims’ baby mama say anything, at least now she will be able to collect SS for the kid until he is 18.
ANOTHER ‘hole’ that needs to be plugged.

There is a case going on now in DC about an 8 year old girl who apparently was a ‘throw away’ kid that somehow got loaned to the 51 yo Janitor from the homeless shelter the 8yo and her mother lived in.

Terrible situation etc except for the fact that the 8 yo was ‘missing’ for about 30 days BEFORE anyone ‘noticed’ and now, that it has gained recognition, the Mother, Grandmother, Aunts, Uncles, and whoever are all suddenly concerned about the ‘well being’ of the child BUT are now attacking the Police for not doing enough to find the child.
Her suspected abductor was found with a ‘single shot to the head’ in a park where it was suspected he may have buried her.

My ‘problem’ with all this is WHERE WAS THE FAMILY for the period of time the mother and 8 yo were ‘living off the taxpayers’? AND I wouldn’t wish ANYONE having to live in a ‘homeless shelter’.

To have a mother (or baby factory) ‘GIVE’ an 8 yo to the 51 yo janitor is bad enough, BUT to have her be given the opportunity to rail on EVERYONE about the childs missing, especially when she had been ‘missing’ for a month prior this hitting the ‘news’....

I hope for the safe recovery of the child but then, I certainly hope she gets placed somewhere far away from these supposed ‘ghouls and head line seekers’ that all of a sudden ‘miss’ the poor little girl.

"culling"

A lot more are born every year than are culled. It's time to take sane measures and sterilize the black underclass. If nothing is done, people will still be reading about these multiple shootings and other assorted criminal acts in staggering amounts from the BU 50-100 years from now. Many will still be parasites, low IQs and uneducable. The total cost to the country through crime and dependency of the BU amounts to half a trillion or more every year. There is no way to educate or civilize that group of people.

Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said Tuesday(march 18 2014) that the city's strategy to reduce gang violence is "clearly taking root," pointing to a major decrease in gang-related shootings, the Sun-Times is reporting.

Those types of shootings have fallen sharply over the early months of this year compared with the same period of 2013, according to the police department.

They now represent less than half of the total number of shooting incidents in Chicago.

"It's not an accident, it's not the weather — it's a trend," the superintendent said in an interview.


oops !
