At least two people were killed and 11 others wounded in violence across Chicago overnight, most of the victims from just two shootings on the West and South sides, according to police.

Suspects were being questioned in one of the shootings, the killing of a man near his home on the Far South Side, officials said.

What are the races of the victims? What are the races of the perpetrators? Since we’ve been lectured in the Trayvon Martin case that we can’t “profile” people based on race or other characteristics, it would be interesting to know how much diversity there actually is, in the criminal element who perpetrate these shootings.

Hey Jesse and Sharpton - why doesn't this slaughter matter?

No guilty white liberals to shake down for cash?

No hatreds to gin up to 'get the vote out'?

No MSM to use this as a stick to hurt conservatives?

Come on, tell us the REAL story.

Do you think we could make just a wild guess and say that “The One” should have stayed out of the Florida issue(s)? Perhaps he needs advisers who have gray matter instead of Liberal mush in their Liberal skulls?

The weekend is here. This number will increase by Sunday morning. Vegas should have an over/under wager on how many misguided yoots will be slaughtered in Chicago. Damn budget cuts to libraries.

From the current statistics, at least 90 to 90.999999% of the dark pigmentation persuasion.

For the record, I am not Caucasian, not even by half,
so don’t call me racist, just the FACTS ma’am, just the FACTS.

"Chicago ought to be fenced off. Detroit too."

For a long time, I've been thinking that it may be necessary to "sanitize" the Union. Your idea of fencing them off is not a bad one. This "fix" should be applied to other population centers as well. New Orleans, Atlanta and others come to mind. Applying this healing repair to the Union would be the approximate equivalent of a high colonic enema for the Union.

I live near Chicago. If Mayor Emanuel wanted to protect Chicago residents, he’d ask the council to ban the gun ban & encourage people to own guns and defend themselves.

Sure looks like all that gun control in Illinois and specifically in the Chicago city limits sure is doing a lot of good huh.

I am sure the Mob sure appreciates it as well. Extortion is so much easier with unarmed sheep.

There was a piece in the WSJ within the last few days...a truly amazing statistic:

"From 1980-2006, 93% of all black murder victims were killed by blacks."

Where's the outrage??? (that's a rhetorical question)

Where is Al Sharpton? In a “green room” somewhere, awaiting his next appearance on camera to condemn white violence against black people.

^^^^

Are you kidding? This was an opportunity for him to gin up more racial tension. And saying that his hypothetical son would have looked like Trayvon was just gasoline on the fire to give the impression that any criticism of Obamugabe is like a racist murder.

I sincerely doubt that there are any regrets for his words. As a matter of fact, I would not be surprised to learn that the statement had been sitting on the shelf just waiting for the correctly matchin incident. Ayers probably wrote that for him, too.

Now a message from President Obama: "In light of all the shootings in Chicago it is important that I say something. I refuse to make any judgement on these shootings because if I had a son he would look just like the shooters!"

“The worst shooting occurred around 6 p.m. Thursday when two men in HOODED SWEATSHIRTS opened fire inside a convenience store in the 1400 block of West 79th Street in the Gresham neighborhood, police said.

One man was killed and five others were wounded. The victims ranged in age from 16 to 24.”

The only change would be honest, law abiding folks would be armed as well as the street goblins. Remember, an armed society is a polite society.

I remember seeing an assertion 20-or-so years ago that “The primary cause of death in young black men is young black men”.

Amazingly, I saw it in either Time or Newsweek, as I recall.

Was that penned by Juan Williams? I saw him cite a similar stat during a Hannity TV show interview earlier in the week.
