CHICAGO - The godfather of a 15-year-old girl who was killed when a gunman opened fire on a group of young people in Chicago says she was a terrific student who had dreams of becoming a doctor or a lawyer.

Damon Stewart says Hadiya Pendleton had been so excited about a trip to Washington, D.C., where she performed as a majorette at some of President Barack Obama's inauguration events.

I’m surprised President Soetoro hasn’t politicized this yet.

Must be off skeet shooting.

Chicago obviously needs more gun control.

“I’m surprised President Soetoro hasn’t politicized this yet.”

His press is doing it for him.

Reduced to “political capital” by every Democrat and RINO — and more than half of American voters.

Will the media shine a spotlight on the large number of murders in Chicago now? I’m guessing they won’t, because they don’t want to say or do anything that might reflect badly on their guy, Obama.

If she was armed, may be she would have been able to resist her attacker. Stay loaded, my friends.

What difference... does it make?

Chicago? Benghazi? They are dead... and we all know the GOP gun nuts are at fault!

MSM will continue to ignore Chicago violence because to do otherwise makes zero look bad.

Thus condemning to death, even more of their youth.

Instead they would rather focus on ammo clip size, than deviant behavior.

This is such a tragedy on so many levels. What a beautiful, promising young lady. Another innocent lost to some feral animal. The youth are the scariest, they just plain don’t give a damn. My prayers offered to her family and friends. How I wish there was more. Makes me sad...but makes me angrier than ever.

Waiting for an Obama photoOp and tearful speech. He’ll blame the shooting on Bush.

Why hasn’t he told his stooge Emanuel to clean up Chicago?

No wonder Obama is known as “Mr. Present”. He just stands around and never does anything positive.

Gee, 4 more years of “Being There”.

Am I the only one who noted
“a gunman opened fire on a group of young people in Chicago “

And seen in another article
“Police said gang members were at the park where Hadiya was killed but she was not a gang member.”

Sleep with dogs, ya get...fleas.

It IS NOT gun violence - it’s GANG violence.

Man, one would think the entirety of the MSM is blind.

She’ll still cast her first vote after she turns 18.

Thanks Dallas59.

Who cares? Not the left.

She wasn’t white, the shooter wasn’t white, and the gun wasn’t registered.
