"...anyone could die." That doesn't sound very open-minded and tolerant; however, it is inclusive and DIEversity is keeping with Democrat values.

Apparently Hizzonner’s appeal to the “basic human decency” of the thugs isn’t as effective as he had hoped.

This story can’t be true with the gun control in place in Chicago. This must a mistake. /s Sincerely, a prayer for all those brave citizens that have to endure the environment developed by all those well-meaning liberals back to the time of the “o” and beyond.

If only Illinois was a tossup state Osama Obama would be making a stop there too.Of course he'd manage to fit in a $10,000 a plate fundraiser or two while he was there.

Can't be!

When guns are banned, crime with guns is no longer possible.

I'm guessing Brian Ross won't be jumping to tie this incident to the TEA Party.

I wonder why not?

Rahm’s idea to solve the killing: “Stop shooting kids and do shootings in alleys where they belong” doesn't give one lots of warm fuzzies.

Rahm is perfectly happy with a gang wars over turf between Black and Latino gangs — as long as they stay in their ‘hoods. If they get uppity and stray outside, he'll crack down until they go back inside their reservations and things get back to business as usual.

To paraphrase ex-Mayor Marion Barry of Washington, DC: “If it wasn't for all the murders, crime in Chicago is actually pretty low.”

Gangs should be banned. Animals running in gangs should be caged or shot.

Murderers would just disregard the law.

Can be!

If the court were to ban you from driving, would you still be able to physically get into a car and drive?
