Just another weekend in Obamaville.
File these articles under the heading ‘Phony Scandals’.
Sounds like a slow weekend. Maybe nannie bloomers was in town and scurred the bad guys into staying home.
Blood in-Blood out. deja vu.
Only 5? Damn slackers!
Just bumps in the road.
Mainstream National Media cannot cover these slaughters.
It doesn’t fit the Democrat Agenda, might make a Democrat look bad, and doesn’t fit the pre-approved Media-Matters/Democrat narrative.
Jesse Jackass: It’s Miller time...
bee-rack obama must be so dissapointed that his black-rage program is mainly offing blacks, and not the whites, which is his intention. His vaunted community organizing skills are failing him.
We are all George Zimmeramn.
We have to be.
Meanwhile, Gov. Quinn got his bill requiring private gun sellers to check potential buyers’ Firearms Owner ID cards, which bill is praised by the head of the State Police, etc.
Of course this law will have little to no effect on murders...
Every Monday morning there should be a listing of Chicagoans killed or injured by people with guns. This report would over the weekend violence but could expand to rest of week. Start with weekend. MSM probably won't touch it.
Who could cover this type of information? John Lott?

Where in hell is Homeland Security ????
These Chicago shooters are pathetic.Can’t get over 20 percent of their shooting to register as kills.The need for a whole lot of range time is indicated.
