Note that the police did not protect ANY of these people from being shot. This must be mentioned EVERY time we have a shooting story to put what the police do to “protect” the average citizen living in gun-free zones, in proper context.

It’s not their job. Officer Safety is their job. That means shooting anything they think could possibly hurt them - armed civilian in wrong house cops are no-knock raiding, any visible dog, anywhere in sight, etc.

These are “Chicago Values” in action.

As in “I pop a cap in yo *ss sucka.”

Of course Chicago Values are antithetical to a Christian world view.

I checked, there is an existing Chick-fil-A franchise in Chicago.

Chick-fil-A

Franchised Restaurant Operator
Lauren Silich

30 E Chicago Ave
Chicago, IL 60611

Phone: (312) 266-8888
Fax: (312) 266-8893

Nevertheless, this news is a more accurate portrayal of Chicago "values."

“Note that the police did not protect ANY of these people from being shot.”

You mean they don’t have the “One cop for every citizen at all times” rule in effect? The bastards.

You cop haters are hysterical.

I wonder what kind of music these young murderers listen to. Duke Ellington? Count Basie? Lena Horne?

It is a war zone in the city and Tiny Dancer worries about chicken sandwiches.

What’s the matter Louis LALA and his merry bunch of Islamists havent’t arrived to protect the streets of Chicago?

There is one thing I’m curious about. Will the Nation of Islam be given guns? And if so how much killing of the white man and other assorted infidels could they get away with offing?

How many of these shootings involved an AR-15, an AK-47, or high-capacity "drum" magazines??

Probably ZERO.

What affect would a Federal ban on these items have in reducing Chicago gun homocides?

Probably ZERO.

Somewhere Obama is thinking to himself “Damn, just lost 5 more voters, oh well thank goodness for ACORN they will still vote Democrat” I guess the Nation of Islam isnt doing that good a job “Policing” the streets of Chicago..but hey, according to the woman yesterday on Hannity, people in Chicago are killing each other because of “Slavery”

Great post.

Tells it like it is.

Why would any sane man want to be Mayor of that rathole.

I suppose it is ,shall we say “Lucrative”?

When I see these Chicago reports, my mind reads them as reports from the battle of Falujah or perhaps the Tet offensive.

Are the families of victims of these crimes going to get money like the Aurora victims? I think NOT.

Well, aside from the enemy combatants all looking alike the similarities end there.

#1 Chicago is more violent

#2 The good guys won in Hue and Al-Fallujah

#3 Chicago is more violent.....keep in consideration the VC had sappers and the muzzie have suicide bombers and STILL....

#4 Chicago is more violent. The murder rate in Shytcago is HIGHER than Baghdad where suicidal islamists walk into a crowded market with an S-Vest and blow everyone to their moon "god" allah in hell.

The slaughter of innocent citizens might be the Chicago Way - but at least they don't commit the biggest sin - allowing Christians to put a chicken restaurant in their town...

These are the Chicago values we should all adopt? Yeah, that's gonna happen.../s

Rahm should be so proud.

Each day that goes by defines “Chicago Values”.

It's not the criminals, it's the guns.

It's not the “Flash Mobs”, it's the lack of more top down socialist government.

If godly, law abiding, people would just go to a designated extermination zone, a la North Korea, the lawless would be just fine.

No problems.
