So much shooting. So much gun control.
If someone shoots me, and I want to die, will I still go to heaven?
Wow! I may come out of retirement here in South Carolina just so I can go live on 13th Street. What an exciting place that must be.
Blacks killing Blacks syndrome.
Where is Sharpton? Where is Jackson? Where is the Panthers? Where is, never mind We all here how the system works. Why doesn't anyone else get wise?
That’s interesting...1300 block of 13th Street I would peg as primarily Hispanic, if there’s anybody living by there at all.
Just think how bad it would be if guns weren’t banned in Chicago ... probably not much except less dead innocent victims and more dead criminals.
This is the city of Daley, Emanuel, Axelrod, Comrade Danny Davis, and Barack Obama, to name a few.
Gee, what a great job they’ve done for the people. I didn’t know that “population control” was an official Democratic policy, but facts are facts.
Obama’s sons killing Obama’s sons, and ocassionally, a daughter too. What is wrong with this picture?
I think that there is no “Hope and Change” for the Windy City, now known as the “Bloody City”.
Chicago: “Hope and Change” 2008
Chicago: “Dope and Deranged” 2012
Thanks Obama. “YES YOU DID”!
Where democrats and crime are literally synonymous.
QUAGMIRE! Pull out of Chicago, NOW!
that tottelin town must have a shortage of trigger locks.
Per DOJ stats from 1976-2005 blacks accounted for 12% of the population yet were responsible for 52.1% of all homicides in the USA.
The problem we have is one of color......we need to wake up to that as a nation.
They’re mostly killing each other -— for no good reason.
But let some white dude protect himself against a black thug, and watch the race pimps turn out.
If muslims were over here killing in those numbers and as a percentage of total homicides we would take action.
Yet blacks get a pass.
This country needs to wake the F up.
