A violent Saturday leaves 7 dead
Chicago Tribune ^ | 27 jan 2013 | Adam Sege, Dawn Rhodes and Rosemary Regina Sobol

Posted on 01/27/2013 6:49:43 AM PST by rellimpank

Four shootings -- two of them double homicides -- and a stabbing left 7 people dead Saturday, authorities said.

The killings brought the number of homicides in 2013 to 40.

In what appeared to be the last homicide of the day, a 32-year-old man was fatally stabbed about 11:50 p.m. in the South Shore neighborhood on the South Side, police said.

The stabbing happened during a domestic argument in the 2500 block of East 73rd Street, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Ron Gaines said.

The man, identified by the Cook County medical examiner's office as Willie Wilson of the 2500 block of East 73rd Street, was found unresponsive on the scene. He was pronounced dead there at 11:55 p.m. with a stab wound to the chest.

“In what APPEARED to be the last homicide of the day...”

It’s Sunday morning - a few more bodies will show up. ;)

Yep, “Chicago values” ... Rahmbo was right ... Chik-fil-A definitely not representative.

40 dead in 26 days = 560 dead/year

Way to go, Chicago - you’re on track to beat even last year’s record total.

Way to go, liberalism.

BTW, why isn’t this a daily story by all the black columnists in Chicago? Because all the shooters & victims are black? If there’s ever a white guy involved, it’s a national story with Al, Je$$e, and the rest of the race mobs, but if it’s only Obmaa’s peeps involved, all we hear is crickets .... way to go, Chicago .....

Rahm needs to tell the banks to quit doing business with criminals and gang bangers. That should solve the problem. Oh, and outlaw gun ownership and confiscate all of the criminals’ guns if the banks refuse to cooperate.

From the article - I hate to criticize the guy at a time like this, but his comment strikes me as odd. I guess it's considered unusual for a boy of 16 to be going to school.

A man who only identified himself as the teen victim's uncle said the boy, whose family lived nearby, had simply gone to run an errand. "He was just going to the store," the man said. "They just killed him just like that." .... "He goes to school and everything," he said to a police officer.

Clearly the only answer is to build a wall around the city to prevent us bitter clingers from importing violence to the peaceful streets of Utopia.

As I understand it, the greater majority of the killings in Rahmistan on the Lake (Chicago) come from four Chicago PD districts on the Southside. Obviously, this is where the crime is, but Da Mare’s strongest statement is for the gangbanger’s to stop shooting kids and take their turf wars to the side streets and alleys where they belong to avoid collateral damage. That’s the ticket to sold crime fighting in Chicago, Rahm!

Ever notice the politicians never try to get guns away from the violent criminals? They only try to take them away from honest, non-violent, law-abiding individuals?
Maybe it’s because the bad guys vote democrat, and the normal people vote Republican.

At a knife show.

Because of a knife show loophole.

Double homicides don’t make national news like “rampage shootings” do even though the one in Sheila Jackson Lee’s district in Texas turned out to be standard gun play between “dissed parties” with no deaths.

No, it's because the politicians know the gangbangers will just laugh at any gun laws they pass, and will kill them if they make any serious attempt to disarm them.

Gangsters simply mean business, and the politicians know that. If they knew that the law-abiding, patriotic citizens of this country meant business, they'd leave us alone too.

Why doesn’t Obama tackle black on black violence or teens getting pregnant, instead of running around chasing gay issues and women in combat in the military? He is looking the other way on jobs too.

There were no white guys involved. Want proof?

Are Al $harpton and Je$$e Jack$on on TV screaming about how their people are being slaughtered by white racists? Are CNN, the NY Times, etc. devoting wall-to-wall coverage to this story, shouting about blacks being attacked by Whitey just like in the slavery days? Is the NAACP organizing mass rallies to protest white "slaughtering" of blacks?

No?

Then there were no white guys involved.

You asked rhetorically, “... Because all the shooters & victims are black?” So by “involvement” I mean in the sense there implied. Read the article.

Chicago is the city that spawned 0bama and is his base no matter how much he goes on BS white bread vacations in Hawaii. Obama wants distance between him and Chicago so he never comments on the black versus black murder epidemic there.

Chicago is the black capital of America where black Moooslim Calypso Louie casts a long shadow on the black Christian churches and church goers and where Obama’s pervert mentor Frank Marshall Davis was from

If we had 100% strictly enforced gun control for black people and Mexicans the murder and assault rate would be very low here and close to Scandinavian nations. This sounds racist but it is the truth. Obama and the libs want to disarm the law abiding middle class who are easy target due to registered gun sales...While the criminal class will always find guns one way or another. This Obama-lib policy is called anarcho-tyranny

Of course, I am going by the names of the two victims in one of the double homicides. This is by no means conclusive, which is why I said “suppose”. Looking at Google Maps, the victims lived in North Lawndale, adjacent to West Garfield Park where they were killed. Wikipedia lists these neighborhoods as 91.43% and 96.19% black, respectively, so I dunno. It’s a question.
