Evidently all of those that have been killed since Martin were White because I have not heard Fredica Wilson screaming on television, "I am sick and tired of having to bury young Black males"!

She did not say that she was sick and tired of them beating, robbing, raping, murdering, and committing mayhem on otherwise innocent and law abiding citizens. But, what the hell, nobody's perfect.

Only one shooting death on a warm Friday night in Chicago? I guess the ammo stores don’t accept SNAP anymore.

Obama’s City, Obama’s State, Obama’s Country. We MUST eject the thugs from the offices of higher power or this country is toast.

Well, there are all sorts of law enforcement people here for the NATO summit, so I guess we can expect a low murder count this weekend. (total sarcasm)

When I saw the title, my eyes automatically scanned for the source -- "Gun-free" (as in "forbidden") Chicago, of course...

With Illinois as the one outstanding "holdout" State, the truth of John Lott's work becomes more obvious with every week that passes.

What’s the “Chicago Style” score for shooting deaths and woundings so far this year?

During one weekend in March of this year, a 6-year-old was the youngest victim killed in a weekend of violence in Chicago. 46 people shot, 9 killed on Saturday and Sunday alone.

In Chicago, murders are up 30%, shootings up 27% from this time last year.

It is my ‘impression’ that at the moment, more American citizens are being shot in Obama’s own community, than in all U.S. military events over the entire world.

Yet Obama remains quiet. It’s far more important to him to help in the racist and political driven lynching of an innocent man, G. Zimmerman. It seems that Biden should be calling for.... a two state solution or a strategic exit.

I suspect that the line level LEO’s in Chicago know exactly what to do to get a handle on this nonsense, but they can’t because of their fear of complete personal destruction, up to and including prison time.

With a couple more years of Obama and the dems in power, this may very well be what every large city in America looks like..... and then. . . . .

I sure wish the GOP would bring up the increase in crime since Obammy has come into office and rub his nose in not doing anything about it. Gangs are growing too and Obama does nothing.
