Holiday, heat bring out violence
Chicago Tribune ^ | May 31, 2011 | Deanese Williams-Harris

Posted on 05/31/2011 7:55:02 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement

A man who was killed trying to protect his girlfriend and a 16-year-old girl were among six people killed and at least 21 others wounded in separate shootings over the Memorial Day holiday and into the night, officials said.

Two of the non-fatal shootings took place at a South Side beach.

The spate of violence came only a day after the redeployment of 500 police officers from two specialized units to high-crime districts.

The first slaying happened about 7:49 p.m. on the 7600 block of South Eberhart Avenue in the city's Chatham neighborhood, police said.

Obviously, it was the heat and the holiday,
and not feral youth raised in a dysfunctional culture,

that was the cause of the violence.

Uh huh - and I'll bet these people are just so sweet and innocent as long as it's below 80 degrees and not a holiday.

This is the third article of serious violence at the beaches. I use to think the salt air just increased your appetite. I guess it increases your appetite for violence, too.

This story is the MSM’s way of telling us black violence all over the country on Memorial Day is caused by ‘heat’. Yeah, right.

NONE of this happened. Chicago has strict gun control. According to police, Democrats, bureaucrats, RINOs, and other lying sacks of s..., gun control keeps guns out of the hands of criminals. So this must all be a mistake in reporting. It couldn’t have happened in Chicago.

That may be the problem - a lack of salt air on Chicago beaches.

I’m sure all the guns involved were legally licensed and properly regulated so it must have been the elites and other city officials who were the perpetrators. No one else can carry guns in Chicago. That is the law!/sarc

SSHHHH!!!

We’re not supposed to think that these are acts of violence committed by black youth, or ghetto dwellers.

We’re supposed to adhere to the liberal narrative. Liberals decry gun violence without talking about who perpetrates such violence, or for what reasons.

Bill Clinton used to talk about how many “children” were killed by guns every year. Upon further review, we learned that the “children” he talked about were predominantly teenage members of gangs, who were out in the streets doing what gangs do best.

Liberals do this with other issues too. We’re supposed to be sympathetic about AIDS, for example, as if we’re all equally at risk of it. We’re not supposed to talk about who the high risk groups for AIDS are, or how they get the disease. We’re just supposed to decry the spread of AIDS, and then bash Bush or Reagan for not having done enough to fight AIDS.

Detroit appears to have been quiet yesterday and temperatures got into the 90s here as well. However you can legally carry in Detroit.

I find it funny how things like “heat” or “poverty” or what the heck ever is used by the liberal media (is that redundant?) to excuse uncivilized behavior of uncivilized people.

After looking at Durdge’s report of other riots around the nation yesterday I can't help but think that there was some sort of organization to it all, a flash mob sort of thing only with a mean violent edge. And with no picture it can only mean one thing about the participants.

In a little over a month Naperville will be holding its annual RibFest and I can only imagine the city’s administration just sitting there in its dimwitted smiley happy face while “yutes” destroy it.

More “Empowerment in the Age of Obama”.

It may not have been coordinated, just the result of generations of propaganda.

Check out Drudge. Apparently there were plenty of urbanites fighting and killing this past weekend all over the country. Will the MSM cover this up or sugarcoat the news?

Odd how the MSM didn't 'catch' this Clinton lie./s It's almost like there's a pattern to the stuff they don't catch...

Thanks for sharing your insights, Dilbert of San Diego.

Roads are still open and our city’s managers are still happy faced morons. Obama’s militia could decide to show up and “take it back.” Naperville is hated by the yutes of Aurora, used to work with them and got to know quite a few of the proto Obama militia, and let me tell the happy faced morons of Political Correctness Naperville is disliked.

Same thing in Austin last night. Two yutes were casing cars on 6th ST, and two APD officers [on bikes] approached them. They got into their getaway car, hit one officer and pinned him against another vehicle. The other LEO shot and killed one suspect and wounded the driver.

I guess I don’t get out much! I’m in Joliet and know what goes down around here. Naperville to me is that little “kingdom” on the edge. I know Aurora has a lot of problems with the illegals and the blacks but I wouldn’t think that the Naperville PD would put up with it. I guess the mushheads have infilterated just about everywhere in IL. But with such “upstanding”, “honest” and “compassionate” leaders like Dickey Durbin,Luis V. Gutierrez, good ole boy JJ Jr., Blagovich, and now with Twinkle Toes as mayor it won’t be long before Shitcago collapses into total anarchy. This weekend was just a warm up. And I’m not referring to the “global” type!

It ain’t so little anymore and it has been infused with section 8 deadbeats who were exiled from chicago. I still can envision a flash gathering of thugs on the Riverwalk or at the two major fests that Naper hosts and the police being outnumbered and unprepared because of our “leaders” putting on the smiley face of moronic PC. But thank god the organizers of these two events do not bring in “urban” entertainment that would draw in the “youth”, nor have the race bullies noticed this and said anything. (crossing my fingers)

I went to that once.

Nothing more than a bunch of overpriced crap food.

No worries about the Amish attending though because of the admission and food prices.

Mostly attended by yuppies and and rubes.

Chicago demolished their “trash containers” and shifted all the trash in every which direction. I know in Joliet they have been in a legal arguement for years with HUD trying to get the Evergreen Terrace apartments torn down. It’s a depository for the displaced Chicago trash. How did the citizens of Naperville allow section 8 housing to be built?
