(CBS) – The death toll of young Chicagoans to urban violence appears to be taking a toll on the mayor.

In the days since the murder of 15 year-old Hadiya Pendleton, Rahm Emanuel has twice been overcome with emotion.

On Thursday, there were tears in his eyes as he talked about violence plaguing inner-city youth.

Their biggest challenge is people like Rahm Emanuel in positions of power.

So NOW the Chicago elite are becoming concerned about violence in Chicago ? (Michelle also going to the funeral).

I do believe over the last few weeks the NRA has helped expose the fact that Chicago is the most crime-ridden place in America ...and this while having the most stringent gun laws.

The welfare plantation mentality and the missing fathers due to the LEFTIST nanny state welfare system are other major factors.

Could be the result of the libs war on families which has been especially successful in destroying nuclear black families.

One could try to attribute it to the law of unforeseen consequences, but I think they knew exactly what they were doing.

Crocodile tears... Rahm, Democrat mobsters like you have been breeding and cultivating a tribe of sociopathic feral humans for the last 3 generations, and it's too late for you to start caring now.

They are beyond redemption and they don't give a damn what a white homo like you wants, cares or thinks.

Live with it. Watch as your city turns into Detroit, and Detroit devolves into Mogadishu.

Of course he’s emotional. Every Chicago murder means one less voting democrat. Then again, a lot of dead democrats vote anyway.

I wouldn't elevate these people and describe them as psychopaths because psychopaths think. These people are dangerous wild animals, their actions are based on instinct and not thought. If they were not killing using guns it be knives, rocks or burning tires on their victims. They are uneducated, ineducable and unemployable. The US Government has fostered a useless population of these goons and both have declared war against the productive civilized Christian sector of society. There is only one possible outcome and that is why the Government is buying billions of rounds of ammunition.

Apparently some focus group said there was not enough emotion being shown by Democrats.
Boom!
Hillary! tears up at her hearing.
Kerry tears up at his hearing.
Rahm tears up.

Most transparent administration ever is right.

We can't do anything about the fatherless, jobless drug dealers and gang bangers shooting each other with stolen 9mm pistols over turf and colors, so...

...let's take rifles and magazines away from the people who aren't shooting each other. Solved.

The Jewish surrogates have gotten out of hand and are destroying the community.

The rule of unintended consequences has toppled the apple cart that was Chicago

“After a few days in the sun, Ari and Rahm could pass for African-Americans, which led to the occasional dustup,” the article says.

Yeah, sure, right.

http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2013/02/07/emanuel-emotional-as-he-discusses-challenges-facing-chicago-youth/

A Vanity Fair article that excerpts a biography written by the mayor’s older brother, Zeke, talks about how Rahm and his younger brother, Ari, faced the issues of race and violence early on at Foster Avenue Beach.

“After a few days in the sun, Ari and Rahm could pass for African-Americans, which led to the occasional dustup,” the article says.

Yeah, and leave them at the mercy of those who don’t know what “law-abiding” means.

No, it worse that Detroit turning to Mogadishu. The housing falls down in Detroit and this dependent population has the helping hand of the US Government to build them a new houses in our neighborhoods, create more section 8, all in the name of “fairness”.

“Never let a crisis go to waste...”

And TEARS really CRISIS-IT-UP, right...? Yep, to the max...!

This man is a controlling, power-man egomaniac —why do ya think they nick-named him, “Rahmbo”...?

He said he lost his middle finger crewing an Israeli tank in a battle in the Negev Desert —amazing, right? Only it WASN’T in a tank, no. And not in the IDF, at all:

He choppped it off in a meat slicer in a summer job.

AT ARBY’S.

This creepy, proudly power-man insect lies about ANYTHING.

He and Jesse Jackson do NOT need to invite Obama to come to the Chicago.

Obama’s got nothing. He IS a successful Chicago politician after all. That says all you and anyone needs to know.

They should ask Dr. Benjamin Carson Sr to come speak to them - and then they should LISTEN to him!

That might do some good.

The tears are for himself,because he looks bad, more and more of the country knows about Chicago’s crime problem and murder rate, it doesn’t help him, it doesn’t help his Master Obama,and above all, he’s in over his head in a way that only someone whose ideology positively PROHIBITS him for doing anything to harness this problem can be.

Social conservatives need to step in and point out that in 1910, the US had about 100 million people, 80 percent were poor (small farmers, factory workers),20 percent cannot read, only 6 percent graduate from High School, women and nonwhites were not treated equal, no gun regulations or limits on what you can own, yet the entire number of murders for the year was 230 (Chicago alone has over 500 murders). What did the Americans of 1912 have that with little or no gun regulations, less education and material wealth that prevented them from killing each other like we do today. According to liberal thinking such an armed, poor, less educated society should not be peaceful, yet it is more peaceful compared to our more advanced and materially better off society. Social libertarians need to ponder on this as well as Dems.

Perfectly said, especially the last part. Also fits Governor Potatohead and the state’s looming fiscal disaster...I saw him on a local news program a couple of nights ago, and he looked both insincere and scared sh*tless.
