Again the tired old question: Where is Al and Jesse? Is there not enough money in this outrage?

midnight basketball wouldn't have helped that one. maybe they need 24 hour basketball.

Darwinism on the hoof. Let’s do a Fast n Furious gun drop into Chicago and see if we can increase the selection rate.....

Think how bad it would be if Baraq hadn’t “organized” the community.

9 dead, 46 wounded? I think we can all guess who those 9 will be voting for in November.

I wonder if Sinatra would still think that Chicago was his kind of town today.

At least they weren’t into venture capital or private equity.

What's the over/under on how many of them vote for Baraq in November?

at "Second City Cop" the guy says that there were roving feral gangs beating people up and robbing them, and the cops could do nothing about it....

don't go to Chicago to visit....stay away....when the rights of innocents are just sacrificed up to the political correctness gods, enough is enough...

let Chicago businesses feel the pain.....

Nine dead, 46 wounded - that’s some mighty poor shootin’. Being Chicago, most of ‘em were probably guilty of something. /s

"An unverified story of the Critical Mass/Naked Bike Ride people getting jumped and lumped by the gangs roaming downtown. The mental picture is pretty scary."

That would have been funny to watch from inside an armored car or something.

If thugs are taking out other thugs, this is good news. It’s only bad when they take out law-abiding folks.

This is intolerable. The war is lost. Pull all of our troops out of Chicago NOW.
