Man Shot Dead Blocks From Obama Home
CBS Chicago ^ | August. 25, 2012

Posted on 08/25/2012 11:28:19 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

CHICAGO (CBS) — Shootings in Chicago between Friday afternoon and Saturday morning left four people dead and at least 13 more wounded.

One of the deadly shootings happened just a few blocks from President Barack Obama’s Chicago home. A young man was sitting in his car with his girlfriend, when he lost his life to an armed robber.

Stephin Williams and his girlfriend were in their car around 2:30 a.m. in the 4900 block of South Drexel Boulevard, in the Kenwood neighborhood about three blocks northwest of Obama’s Chicago home on Greenwood Avenue. Two men walked up with a handgun and announced a robbery, police said.

When Williams attempted to fight, one of the males shot him multiple times.

More blood on the hands of the gun control scum. This man had the will to defend himself and his girlfriend, but because he was law abiding, he was deprived of the tools to do so effectively.

The gun control scum are simply evil working hand in hand the the thugs.

I really doubt we’ll see Baraq moving back to Chitown in Jan.
I’m betting he follows the Clintons to NYC.

Although the Baraq Hussein Obama Presidential Library and Choom Gang Museum will have branches in Hawaii, Calif, and Chicago.

There won’t be any next time for this guy, but he should have gotten a room.

Necking in a car is an open invitation to get killed
in Chicago.The girl is lucky she wasn’t raped.

One of the deadly shootings happened just a few blocks from President Barack Obama’s Chicago home.

What? Is it some sort of 'holy ground'??

The Kenwood/Hyde Park/University of Chicago area is an enclave mostly protected by U of C cops. Unfortunately, I think their days are numbered.

Hey....where is Bill ayers when you need him? He lives in that area too.

Oh, I forgot, Ayers sends Bernadine and the girls when its time to blow something up or shoot someone.
Or if he is hassled by a news reporter outside his townhouse he calls....THE Cops!
ha.

Earlier in the summer, somebody posted a really good map that showed Chicago’s murders by ward number.

Chicago is like a lot of big liberal cities where the ambience quickly changes (in literally few blocks) from elite enclave to third world degradation.

While visiting a friend there recently, I found that out the hard way trying to find Enrico Fermi’s house on foot (I went in the “wrong” direction on Woodlawn). That was a little scary even at 2:00 on a weekday afternoon.

The Chicago Machine loves a good killing. The more the merrier. One body in the cemetery can get them a dozen ‘ghost’ votes “from the grave”.

Sometimes I read things way too literally.

After I read the headline the first time I wondered how or why do you shoot blocks that are dead and how did they get the blocks from Obama’s home.

Maybe I need some rest from all this Obama all the time stuff.

My prediction is that Baraq won’t be able to stand not being on tv constantly.

He may well get a regular gig on MSNBC.

NYC has to be the place for him.

Of course they’ll have vacation homes all over the place.

Obama will make tens of millions just selling POTUS pardons next January.

If Obama had any sense, he would flee the country after the election to avoid prosecution.

The media will treat him just like they did BJ Clinton.

And no way a Romney administration is going to do anything to him.

You’ll see Baraq sell POTUS pardons for 10s of millions and nobody in the MSM will even notice.

Yep, that area is surrounded by ghetto on three sides, and Lake Michigan to the east. They are surrounded.

Wait a minute. Was this black-on-black crime? Because I think Jesse Jackson has declared black-on-black crime off limits for white people to talk about. Jesse doesn't care about it, and if we do we are racists, because there's no way to talk about it without portraying young black males in a negative light.

So if you care about it, stop it now!

Well, someone was once shot dead blocks from my home in Pittsburgh, but overall my neighborhood is pretty safe. That’s why your link is to a local affiliate - because it’s really just a local story.

Yep. Øbama lives just on the northern border (near Calypso Louie) if you cross 51st St. is a warzone. Hyde Park is buffered to the west by Washington Park, to the east by Lake Michigan and the south by the Midway Plaissance (60th St.)

When I lived there in the early 90’s it was a relatively safe place as I can only remeber 3 murders there in 3 years.

Hyde Park is dominated by uber-liberal white Jewish people and the eggheads at the UC.

Cleveland where I’m from is similar.

The place where my parents lived when I was born, I’m not sure I’d visit even in daytime.

But I can visit it without dodging bullets by using Google Streetview, LOL.
