Posted on 01/20/2013 11:21:03 AM PST by Hoodat
The date was January 12, 2013. You probably didnt hear about this tragedy involving guns and two teenage boys. But this was the headline in the Chicago Tribune: Boys, 14 and 15, killed in separate shootings Friday. You didnt hear about it because such events arent news in Chicago. Theyre ordinary daily occurrences. As we continue to hear calls for ever-tightening gun laws from the Obama administration, and from states such as New York, it is worth thinking about those headlines in Chicago. And in inner cities all around America, places where strict gun laws are already in place. Places where the weapon of choice isnt an AR-15 but a semiautomatic handgun the same kind of weapon most Americans use reasonably, and safely, to secure their most precious assets: their loved ones and their property.
So lets go back to that wretched January 12 story from Chicago, President Obamas hometown. The murdered 14-year-old had a name, Rey Durante. He was gunned down by two shooters while standing on the porch of his Humboldt Park home. The two men opened fire, according to news accounts, near midnight, striking him multiple times in the chest.
When paramedics arrived on the scene, he was lying just inside his home, bleeding from several bullet wounds. He died there. Police found blood all over the front steps and more than half a dozen shell casings on the sidewalk. He would have turned 15 in a few days, his stepmother told reporters.
On the sidewalk near the crime scene, a local paper reported, the father of one of the boys friends cried as he paced near a group of teenagers. When a neighbor asked him what had happened, his response was simple and heartbreaking . . .

Thee title is misleading.
It should be: “The War By Black Men On Black Men.”
But then liberals would not read it.
The 2A should be colorblind. Everyone in Chicago should have 2A rights to defend themselves.
“The War Against Black Men”
The author is apparently out of touch with today’s culture. MSM and the advertising world are currently warring on the hetrosexual white male. Watch tv and you will obswerve how the white male is depicted as a blithering idiot. The black guy in most instances is depicted as the educated professional business man. Of course women and the homosexual males are always above the stature of the white male.
It seems that the modern culture has decided that everything that was old fashioned was wrong and therefore we should do the opposite.
Minorities are the most vulnerable and the problems show up first in their lives but the rest of us are not far behind.
This piece includes a retelling of William Raspberry’s “Elephant’s Tale”.
I’ve seen it several times over the years, and there’s a brief reference to the incident in the Wikipedia article on the park.
Does anyone know of any more-reputable confirmation of the story?
AS I PASS through my incarnations in every age and race,
I make my proper prostrations to the Gods of the Market Place.
Peering through reverent fingers I watch them flourish and fall,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings, I notice, outlast them all.
We were living in trees when they met us. They showed us each in turn
That Water would certainly wet us, as Fire would certainly burn:
But we found them lacking in Uplift, Vision and Breadth of Mind,
So we left them to teach the Gorillas while we followed the March of Mankind.
We moved as the Spirit listed. They never altered their pace,
Being neither cloud nor wind-borne like the Gods of the Market Place,
But they always caught up with our progress, and presently word would come
That a tribe had been wiped off its icefield, or the lights had gone out in Rome.
With the Hopes that our World is built on they were utterly out of touch,
They denied that the Moon was Stilton; they denied she was even Dutch;
They denied that Wishes were Horses; they denied that a Pig had Wings;
So we worshipped the Gods of the Market Who promised these beautiful things.
When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace.
They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "Stick to the Devil you know."
On the first Feminian Sandstones we were promised the Fuller Life
(Which started by loving our neighbour and ended by loving his wife)
Till our women had no more children and the men lost reason and faith,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "The Wages of Sin is Death."
In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all,
By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul;
But, though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "If you don't work you die."
Then the Gods of the Market tumbled, and their smooth-tongued wizards withdrew
And the hearts of the meanest were humbled and began to believe it was true
That All is not Gold that Glitters, and Two and Two make Four
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings limped up to explain it once more.
As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man
There are only four things certain since Social Progress began.
That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
And the burnt Fool's bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire;
And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!
Working as intended.
This country does not need to have a conversation about how many bullets should go in a clip. It does need to have a conversation about how many parents should go in a family.
WOW! I do have something in common with liberals.
Since it is blak-onblack, I really don't give a rat's patoot either.
So long as the state welfare systems pay more and more money for single women to have more children, this will continue. If the woman gets married to the father, she loses her welfare check. I have a single mother employee who was actually told by the state DSHS adviser that the best thing she could do was to quit her job and and have another kid. Then she could get more money and wouldn’t even have to work.
What I like to point out is that if we are going to accept that certain civil rights must be curtailed for all of our safety, then the obvious infringement should be on the freedom of black American males between the ages of 12 and 45.
If we are not to live in a free society, then the most logical action based on the facts, the statistics, is to put a dusk to dawn curfew on this group. Prohibit them from possessing weapons of any sort, stop them from congregating in groups larger than two. Ensure each and everyone is fingerprinted, DNA documented, and tagged with a GPS tracker, which is constantly recorded.
Now that might sound extreme, especially to Constitutional literalists, but its time for reasonable restrictions on out of control black male crime. If it saves even one life, it is worth trying, and statistically, it would promise to save millions from violent crime annually.
So its time to sideline these civil rights extremists and do what we need to do to protect the innocent, right? After all, prohibitions against such limitations were written in a different time, when a different reality existed. We have a living, breathing Constitution that allows us to redefine rights based on the majorities current whimsy.
How many of these Fatherless kids are actually better off without the Father?
Fathers who teach them to breed and run off from the mothers, Fathers who are now in prison, Fathers who teach them racism from the cradle to the grave, Fathers who do not work and have no intention of working. Fathers who beat their mother and their kids. Rapist fathers.
Some—many—of these kids are just as well off without their Fathers. And don’t get me started on some of the Mothers.
This is about how Chicago (e.g.), with its “tough” gun control, most closely resembles a Hollywood movie shootout. Thanks Hoodat.
Instead of looking at the Black culture, they seek to lay the blame somewhere else. And what better target than the Whites - even though no white man had anything to do with this crime - the fact remains that the whites are to blame.
Let’s look at Black culture for a moment, a culture that represents ~10% of our population, yet commits upwards of 30% of the violent crime. This culture idolizes the “Thug” lifestyle, rap music, debases women in their music, has the highest level of unwed pregnancy in our nation, leads our nation in welfare, unemployment and illiteracy - yet lays the blames of all of their short-comings at the feet of the white man. All while demanding slave reparations, special considerations in education and mandating special considerations in hiring.
Perhaps they ought to stop blaming everyone else, and spend a few hours in self-examination .... but why bother ... it’s so much easier to blame whitey.
If liberals were to dive into the subject of black murder in the cities, they would have to look at gangs - the source of most of the murders we are discussing. They would have to arrest gang leaders and members and lock them up.
Many other anti-social, destructive behaviors are running rampant in the cities; one being “proud” whoredom which is promoted in black entertainment. It’s time for a new fad. The gangsta rap entertainment industry has to be put to rest.
Female on male domestic violence is another huge problem that has to be addressed in the city black subculture. It lacks the ideals of virtue, honor and love -and promotes the opposite. It promotes racism - pride in skin and hatred and resentment of skin and calls it self esteem.
This is why liberals won’t touch the murder in Chicago and other cities. Focus on whitey - demonize them as violent and anti-social because they exercise their second amendment rights - mostly legally. Trip them up with a pile of laws that will make gun ownership a huge legal risk and getting approved to own a gun next to impossible. Liberals are running a diversity race war with power. It’s their people (holder’s people/other races) against whitey - especially white Christians.
But even that rate of murder is far less than the horrendous numbers of innocent black babies lost due to the evils of abortion. Quite possibly, another Clarence Thomas, Allen West or Herman Cain was murdered in the womb by Planned Parenthood, the Susan G. Komen outfit and by their satanic enablers of the Obama regime.
More to the point there is a war of black men on white women involving rape and forced sex. Also sexual intimidation in that “you must have sex with me or you are racist and not cool”. Black dudes killing black dudes is within their race. Jesse Jackson never says anything about (so he must not care) it so why should I.
What gets people revved up is inter-racial rape murder and assault and in this, blacks are far outdoing whites. So the libs and the blacks wheel the huge propaganda machines into place when they want to spin fake morality plays like Treyvon Martin
Mass abortion is the direct result of the immoral slut and gangsta culture targeted young black people in entertainment. They could not be indoctrinated into a more destructive and evil mentality or lifestyle. Where are the so-called black churches? Too busy race baiting for socialism to care if their congregations die.
Now couple that with Hollywood and Rap culture, and we have this unsolvable mess, unless the vast majority of blacks go back to "American values," like, God, church, marriage & families, education, self respect, self responsibility, pride of ownership, neighborhood security, patriotism and the work ethic.
I agree with both of you.
Very sad and sorry situation, but it’s up to them to change.
And neither do you. Like 'liberals' you have an excuse for blacks. Blacks are not responsible for what they do it is some outside influence.
I've got news for you. Black crime has always been a disproportional problem. Even in the 1950's a period when black families were considered more stable.
National Affairs: THE NEGRO CRIME RATE: A FAILURE IN INTEGRATION
Monday, Apr. 21, 1958
THEY are afraid to say so in public, but many of the North's big-city mayors groan in private that their biggest and most worrisome problem is the crime rate among Negroes.
In 1,551 U.S. cities, according to the FBI tally for 1956, Negroes, making up 10% of the U.S. population, accounted for about 30% of all arrests, and 60% of the arrests for crimes involving violence or threat of bodily harmmurder, non-negligent manslaughter, rape, robbery and aggravated assault. In one city after another, the figureswhere they are not hidden or suppressed by politiciansreveal a shocking pattern.

It should be “The War Between Black Men”. If there is any war *Against* it’s against White Men. That is without question now.
It really is a wonder to observe the workings of the “liberal” mind! Protect women by having them abort their unborn daughters. Protect the children by taking guns away from the law abiding citizens so they cannot protect their own children and then they propose the murder of people who want to keep their guns. They think we who support the death penalty for murder but are against abortion are “inconsistent” while THEY who are for abortion but against the death penalty are consistent! Wonder of wonders, how do they imagine that the one can be inconsistent while the reverse is somehow consistent? Reality is that both positions are perfectly consistent but the conservative position is consistent with sanity while the liberal position is simply consistently insane. Truly the “liberals” are amazing, they fancy themselves to be possessed of perfect wisdom while spouting some of the most absurd nonsense ever heard of on the planet.
AWESOME, SIMPLY AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So I did a bit of math with the crime stats from the FBI and some census data which mirror the author’s conclusions.
1) 50% of all murder victims in 2011 were African-American.
2) 52 % of all murderers in 2011 were African-American (if their race was known and a significant fraction was unknown).
3) The murder rate (not including manslaughter) in the US in 2011 (4.1 per 100K) is half what it was in 1992, and the rate has been falling since 1992, its not an all at once thing.
4) Given that African-Americans make up 14% of the US population and commit half of all murders, that implies
a) The murder rate for non-African-Americans (86% of the US population) is something like half the national average (about 2.3/100K) about the same as that of Finland.
b) The murder rate for African-Americans is about 15/100K.
c) African-American men ages 13-39 are about 2.4% of the population of the US in 2011 and account for an estimated 40% of all murders.
5) About half of all murders in the US are committed with handguns (again, as of 2011).
Conclusion: Unless and until young urban Black males stop killing other young urban Black males were not going to significantly reduce murder rates in the US.
Opinion: The overwhelming majority of Americans dont believe giving up their fundamental right to armed self-defense is a price worth paying to stop street thugs engaged in the narcotics trade from killing each other at a high rate.
Precisely! They will never admit they could possibly have been wrong.
So, if a black gang banger shot and killed Thomas Sowell (or me, for that matter), you wouldn't give a damn?
Or a Rat’s Patoot.
Bloody hell. Are you serious?
Chicago is Rowanda by the Lake
Thanks for posting.
Some Chicago Police chief type is putting out the word that it's not true: Chicago doesn't have strict gun control laws. Of course he's lying but then again he's a democrat... The story's posted here on FR... Check it out for a good Orwelling laugh.
