City of Brotherly Love. And Obama’s hangout. Glad to see he organized those communities so effectively.

Why doesn’t the city of Chicago pass some of those stringent gun control laws that have resulted in the eradication of murder, mayhem and violence in other cities with such laws like Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Oakland, etc.?

6 more dead Blacks murdered by other Blacks, and no one says a word. But let even ONE of them be killed by a “White Hispanic” and the President of the United States and global media will go into a frenzy.

Thank you Lord for Chicago’s strict gun laws.

It would surely be an unsafe place without them!

I'm sure any that didn't looked like Bill Ayre’s (sp?) son.

It’s racist tensions. If there were no white hispanics killing 4 year old black kids begging for food....this wouldn’t happen.

Inner city violence has gotten out of hand. Our only hope is to pray to Saint Skittles.

The city’s response to the Trayvon Martin for Sainthood and End the Gun Violence worldwide tour. After the tour appeared in East St Louis, 2 people were killed and 3 gruesomely shot. Chicago was no to be shown up by those East St Louis amateurs.

Meanwhile in Detroit the number of defensive shootings has skyrocketed and nobody talks about it because its 90% blacks defending themselves from blacks.

Have more died from guns and bombs in Chicago in the last four years than died in WWII?

Once a year Sturgis, SD, hosts about 500,000 bikers, mostly on BIG LOUD HARLEYS, many of whom CARRY GUNS, but nothing like this ever happens during Bike Week. Could it be that the Amish are causing all of those horrors in Chicago, where there CAN’T BE ANY GUNS because GUNS ARE BANNED there. What’s wrong with all those Sturgis bikers???

Maybe we should try to get the Sturgis bikers to come to Chicago.
