3 less Obama voters!
Not quite. :-)
Welly, this is Chicago. Just because they are dead doesn’t mean they can’t vote democrat. Haven’t you been reading FR?
I’m sure all the OWS patriots will descend on Chicago to protest this outrage any minute now! Those damn bankers shooting up the place. sigh.
Or what is referred to as Friday in Chicago.
As soon as I read the headline, I somehow knew it had to do with Chicago.
Wow. Seven posts and no one has said it so it’s up to me. The Amish on a rampage again?
I’m sure there was a lot of community organizing that went into that shooting.
The street gang community has learned a lot from Obama about organizing.
Not to be cynical; 19 of the 20 shootings were in heavily minority areas, some with severe gang problems. (Chicago has an estimated 50,000 street gang members, but at those numbers, who’s counting?) The one odd one was the shooting at Ashland and Irving Park, about a mile from Wrigley Field.The Lakeview area contains primarily a young, hip, professional, semi-professional people. Equal opportunity drive by? The new mayor, Rahm Emmanuel (nicknamed Tiny Dancer) knows the city is down 2,000 cops and another 250 retiring by year end (out of total 14,000) but can’t seem to find the money in the budget to hire more police officers. And the City of Chicago still has the most stringent gun laws in the U.S. hmmmmm get yours, sucka.
A quiet night in Chicago, no?
Sounds like Chicago needs a community organizer.
Meanwhile, in my part of armed to the teeth downstate Il. ......(crickets chirping)
Well they could try outlawing all guns........
Well they could try those Gunshot location systems........(I know they always have the dead body)........
Well they could require Bullet Marking........
Well they could try a gun buyback program........
Well they could try snitching........
Well they could try making it illegal and punishable by up to 10 years in prison for those convicted of or under indictment for a felony punishable by more than one year in prison, someone convicted of a misdemeanor punishable by more than two years in prison, a fugitive from justice, an unlawful user of any controlled substance, someone who has been ruled as mentally defective or has been committed to any mental institution, an illegal alien, someone dishonorably discharged from the military, someone who has renounced his or her U.S. citizenship, someone subject to certain restraining orders, or someone convicted of a domestic violence misdemeanor to possess a gun........
Well they could have a no issue Right-to-carry law where concealed carry is generally forbidden........
More Amish running amok???
A usual Friday night. Today is Saturday. Let’s see what they report tomorrow.
It sure gets quiet south of I-80, doesn’t it.
Anyone got a running total for deaths in Iraq & Afghanistan vs Chicago & NYC or NOLA?
Wonder how many gangs are benefiting from the Midwest (Indiana) Gun Walker? obama’s got to arm his National Civilian Security force somehow.
Just venting anger from the Property Tax increase . . .
Ever notice that most of these shootings take place well between mid-night and daylite? Don’t most rats and other vermin come out at night to play? Sarcastic but quite similar I’d say.
