Yes, he exacerbated the problem then acts like the solution in order to take credit. And the clueless press goes right along with it because it makes them money.

The only solution:
- Tax Increases
- Abortion on Demand
- Firearms Confiscation
- Mandatory Diversity Training for Whitey
- Open Borders
- Submission to Islam

Spend $1B on Midnight Basketball. It’s the only effective anti-violence program known to work.

Well, obviously, the cause is racism. The solution is reparations.

Secret meeting huh? Closed doors? Hand picked mayors from his favorite Democrat strongholds?

Obama’s favorite way of doing business for he realizes that when the light is turned on the roaches and other vermin run for cover.

I bet they really came to an agreement that more government control was needed and that the common citizen must be stripped further of their Constitutional rights to ensure that the young “animals” will be nice kitties.

don’t laugh about banning suburbs. There are plans to try to get more Section 8 housing in subirban areas.

If this happens, then more formerly nice suburbs will go ghetto. There have already been a number of suburbs around our cities which have gone ghetto.

I’m sure the “solution” oblamer proposed was the disarming of the yutes’ victims.

“quietly reviving an issue that once dominated the White House agenda.”

Hysterical! Typical MSM nonsense to try and convey the impression that Obama actually cares about the WWII vet in Washington or the baseball player in Oklahoma.

When was this EVER on the agenda? I must have missed it. It would have been tough to squeeze this in between the government takeover of healthcare, attacking business owners, expanding food stamps by 20 million people, criminalizing Christianity, etc.

Touth = Black. There were no comments because we don’t want to stigmatize the little darlings.

It’s not youth violence, it’s black violence. Let’s be honest and accurate.

Can anyone find a list of the mayors who attended? AP didn’t see fit to do that, so I can infer who went, but a true list would be interesting.

KC major Sly James was there (heard on local talk this morning). He, of course, “blames the bulk of youth violence on poverty, substandard education and gun access.”

Sly James is right, er, correct: Obama’s been killing jobs, education vouchers, and has been giving guns to not only organized criminals, but terrorists as well.

Interesting.

Note that the names, gender, and race shown in that list are that of the victim, not the perpetrator.

That said, looking at the names of the white victims, I notice one thing that most seem to have in common.

Facts are stubborn things, and the numbers are neither liars or bigots.

Quick math on the spreadsheet: 80.1% of the reported crimes from blacks. Males were 89.1% of the crimes, and black males were 90% of the reported males reported.

If someone in Chicago feels threatened because of some hooded black men walking towards them... perhaps they should. It would be a logical thing to do.
