Didn't we all love eating pizza at 2:45 a.m. in liquor stores when we were 14 years old?

Doesn’t explain why a 14 yr old was out at a liquor/pizza joint at 2:45AM! Do they sell Skittles?

I read over 25 people were shot in Chicago over the weekend. Since none were shot by a white hispanic it must not be worth the news.

The kid was there with his adult sister. He’s not to blame.

And the city should be safe even at 2:45 AM on a holiday weekend.

Rahm should say something about this.

So should Jackson, Sharpton, and all the other activists.

Problem is, they won’t. (It might mean having to point a finger of blame in the wrong direction...)

Could you imagine how bad it would be in Chicago now were it not for Baraq’s brilliant years of “community organizing” ?

Call me crazy but if this child WAS NOT in a liquor store at 2:45am he would not be dead.

This cannot be true, only police are allowed to have guns in Chicago.

This is where I get my Chicago shooting and North Ave. beach "event" news since the local media seems to be in Rahm's pocket:

Well it could be but I do not think the City would allow that to be reported.

Pizza and liquor store?

Now that’s what I call a convenience store!

Advice I assume they quickly ignored once they discovered that they good parties don’t even start until 11pm.

College parties tend to track a little differently than all night pizza and liquor store evenets.
