Chicago Tribune ^ | 24 aug 2012 | Peter Nickeas

Posted on 08/24/2012 5:43:58 AM PDT by rellimpank

Nineteen people were shot in attacks across the South and West sides between about 5:20 p.m. Thursday and 1:30 a.m. Friday - including 13 people during a single 30-minute period - according to the Chicago Police Department.

The shootings peaked between about 9:15 and 9:45 p.m. Thursday when 13 people were shot, including eight in a single incident at 79th Street and Essex Avenue about 9:30 p.m.

Police are still trying to sort out that shooting, the second of three incidents that left multiple people wounded since 8 p.m.

How’s that gun control thing working out in Chicago?

More people have died in Chicago this year than in Afghanistan. This hellhole is completely run by Democrats, best buds of BO. And half the people in this country still think this bunch of incompetents can run the entire country in spite of the past four years of utter failure. Amazing.

This may be part of a new DOJ program called Really Fast and Really Furious, designed to make people cry out for gun control here in the midwest...

CHICAGO
HOG Butcher for the World,
Tool Maker, Stacker of Wheat,
Player with Railroads and the Nation’s Freight Handler;
Stormy, husky, brawling,
City of the Big Shoulders:

They tell me you are wicked and I believe them, for I
have seen your painted women under the gas lamps
luring the farm boys.
And they tell me you are crooked and I answer: Yes, it
is true I have seen the gunman kill and go free to
kill again.
And they tell me you are brutal and my reply is: On the
faces of women and children I have seen the marks
of wanton hunger.
And having answered so I turn once more to those who
sneer at this my city, and I give them back the sneer
and say to them:
Come and show me another city with lifted head singing
so proud to be alive and coarse and strong and cunning.
Flinging magnetic curses amid the toil of piling job on
job, here is a tall bold slugger set vivid against the
little soft cities;

Fierce as a dog with tongue lapping for action, cunning
as a savage pitted against the wilderness,
Bareheaded,
Shoveling,
Wrecking,
Planning,
Building, breaking, rebuilding,
Under the smoke, dust all over his mouth, laughing with
white teeth,
Under the terrible burden of destiny laughing as a young
man laughs,
Laughing even as an ignorant fighter laughs who has
never lost a battle,
Bragging and laughing that under his wrist is the pulse.
and under his ribs the heart of the people,
Laughing!
Laughing the stormy, husky, brawling laughter of
Youth, half-naked, sweating, proud to be Hog
Butcher, Tool Maker, Stacker of Wheat, Player with
Railroads and Freight Handler to the Nation

19 is an outlier. If you subtract the 13 shot in one incident, you have only 6 shot. So, except for one little outbreak, you had a fairly quiet night in Chicago.

It would seem that gun control is working out quite well.

It seems to be working out great for the criminals. Not so great for everybody else though.

Nineteen people were shot

Nope - not possible. Chicago has strict gun control, and as every liberal knows those criminals who would kill or rob someone without a qualm will nevertheless obey gun control laws. And also as every liberal knows having a gun to defend yourself is a lot more dangerous than being an unarmed victim. SO I repeat - not possible in Chicago.

The police will protct you, and in Chicago they're doing a bang up job. I wonder how many armed police are on the mayor's personal protection detail.

The Mayor was right about Chick-Fil-A not representing Chicago values, when was the last time you heard of 19 people being shot in a Chick-Fil-A?

"They can’t even wait for the weekend anymore."

They beef up the police patrols on the weekends, so they had to start the parties on Thursday nights.

Darn good thing they don’t have any gun stores, concealed weapons, or assault weapons there! I mail ordered another 1600 rounds of ammo.

Gun Control.

Lucky for Chicago, they had a very famous “Community Organizer” whose task was to rid that city of violence.

He is now President.
Amazing how some spectacular failures can be promoted from one catastrophic failure to another. Hopefully, this ends in November.

It’s all part of a master plan. F&F didn’t work out for Obama/Holder, so they instructed Rahmbo to allow the gang violence in Chicagoland to spike so as to create a sense of a crisis.

Remember, never let a good crisis go to waste...

Isn’t 19 Louis Farrakhan’s mysterious number in his conspiracy theories? That’s the answer then. White people are responsible for these shootings.

CHICAGO MAYOR RAHM EMANUEL SPOKE OUT ABOUT "CHICAGO VALUES" wrt the recent Chick-Fil-a controversy......

Mayor Rahm danced into the controversy after Alderman Proco Joe Moreno (1st ward) had publicly announced his opposition to Chick-Fil-A opening in his ward.

Mayor Rham chuckled while doing a plie: "It's easy to do business in Chicago when you know 'the rules.' Chick-Fil-A can open in our town as long as it adopts 'Chicago Values.' "

(1) weekly cash pay off to the alderman;

(2) hire six of the alderman's friends who work only random days of the month,

(3) BIG AL from the Mayor's office picks up all cash in brown paper bags at CFA's back door,

(4) Chick Fil A staff trained to shoot 10-12 customers per month,

(5) Any CFA customers actually killed must be registered to vote as Democrats,

(6) $100,00 campaign contribution to Obama,

(7) Free food to Jesse Jackson, Jr, who is now "convalescing," b/c he screwed up buying Obama's Senate seat.

This is all happening in Chicago, where it is illegal to carry a gun. Think of how horrific it must be in states where concealed and open carry are perfectly legal. In states like New Hampshire, the dead must be stacked up like cordwood.

Oh wait, never mind

They use the "L" loosely. They put the "sans L" on a full mast.

19 people shot (none by Chicago PD) in about 8 hours on a weeknight. Proof positive that marksmanship classes in the gummint skewels and an ammunition stamps program are desperately needed in Chicago.

Chicago has the highest rate of gun violence in the USA. It also has some of the most stringent gun laws in the nation. I am constantly amazed at the ages of the victims. Yesterday a three year old was shot in the face at 10:19 PM. It is obvious that the gun laws don't stop criminals from having guns. However, I do know that if I lived in the most dangerous city in the USA, I would absolutely not have my 3 year old out and about at 10:19PM! They will blame the shooter or blame the gun, but who should be held responsible for the safety of their that 3 year old child? That child should have been at home, in bed, in the safety of their home.
