Terrorised Chicago residents plead for police crackdown as gang war murders soar
The Telegraph ^ | 7-16-12 | Philip Sherwell

The cluster of young men hanging out on the porch of the run-down brick home cast menacing stares at the unknown car as a "spotter", a teen on a bicycle, talked into a mobile phone.

Beneath a tree across the street, burned red candle wax was the last remnant of an impromptu shrine for a 13-year-old boy, Tyquan Tyler, shot dead two weeks earlier by a killer just a few years older than him.

The assailant had run through an alleyway past a boarded-up home, mown down his victim and then disappeared back down the same route into a neighbouring street before the "ATM boys" could respond with their Glock pistols.

In the killing zones of Chicago's predominantly black and poor South Side, turf warfare is no longer waged for control of districts but street to street

“In the killing zones of Chicago’s predominantly black and poor South Side”

Now that is racist reporting.

It's all part of the plan... Get the population so frightened that they demand totalitarian actions by the politicians. Even though the SCOTUS affirmed the right to own firearms for personal protection, Chicago will outlaw the ownership of all firearms, and begin sweeps, beginning in the high crime areas, but these will eventually expand outward into the suburbs.

BHO or Rahm must have family or friends who are going to start selling drones to the police department.

Chicago residents should rename the gangs, the Tea Party.

Politicians would publicly denounce them.

Reverend Wright would preach against them.

Then the military would be called out and they'd break down every door till all Tea Party members were in chains.

A new prison would be paid for by the government to hold all the vicious, murderous Tea Party criminals.

It’s just Dear Leader’s “Civilian Army” getting in shape for November.

This is paradise for the lefties. No upstanding citizen will ever become a vigilante again.

Come on! Give poor Rahm a break, he's too busy bashing Mitt to get involved in the small stuff

British journalists are allowed to generalize about American blacks.

First thing, put these posters up all over the place. The entertainment value alone is priceless. The city would probably deploy a battalion of cops just on the off chance.

Again this is a manfuctured crisis. Rahm dismantled gang units. Now the people beg for them back. Guess who won’t let this go to waste?

Governments at the city, state and federal level are largely responsible for the sewer Chicago has become. People with any sense whatsoever, would not be turning to more government for the solutions.
