Girl ‘hitta’ killed for gang until she was gunned down
Chicago Sun-Times ^ | 07 june 2014

Posted on 06/07/2014 4:53:27 AM PDT by rellimpank

Long before Gakirah Barnes was murdered in a hail of bullets on the South Side, her mother had heard the unsettling, persistent rumors about her.

Her 17-year-old daughter — the same 5-foot-3, 128 pound girl once seen as shy at school — was known for something almost unheard of on the streets of Chicago.

There are teenage girls who are accomplices in gang murders.

There are girls who hide gang guns for their boyfriends.

But Barnes was believed to be a “hitta” — a female assassin for a faction of the Gangster Disciples, law enforcement sources say.

Surplus to requirements when you have Aldermen tipping off gangs to police raids and interfering with prosecutions.

In Chicago, the Aldermen/women are probably gang members.

Her mother probably wouldn’t give her the time of day. Welfare bastards are bred to enrich the sows/queens; they care nothing for the bastards themselves.

I was shocked at the honesty of the “Precious” movie in showing just how disfunctional and evil the ghetto denizens really are...

The mother would have known she did not have a good daughter, but I don’t think any parents thinks their kids are hit specialists for gangs.

...Barnes was in the eighth grade when she entered the South Side charter school in the fall of 2010. In her first month, she was suspended for being disrespectful, Assistant Principal Tiffany Harston said.

But that was the end of it. She didn’t get into fights at school. When math class frustrated her, she’d leave, but only to look for help.

“I told her our goal was that she would receive a quality education and go to college,” Harston said.

Barnes was shy — even timid, Harston recalled....

Yeah, that sure sounds like shy, timid kid behavior to me. /s

And spelled backwards, its "Harikag", which sounds just as close to a real name.

By extension, that implies “Deadfish” Rahmbo also has such ties. (Aside from the nickname I just mentioned.)

I was living in Galesburg, IL, which isn’t exactly Southside, and every now and then on the public access cable channel I would catch the broadcast of the town council meetings. I mostly tuned in to see the batshit crazy stuff the lone black Alderman had to say. The guy represented the “rough” part of town (can’t say the “wrong side of the tracks” as the town had tracks radiating out from it like spokes on a wheel). It truly was a monthly comedy routine.

Well in the paper there was a report of gunfire in that part of town and a house had taken a bullet, and it turned out that the house that was shot at was this Alderman’s (reminder: The guy is black).

Right there in front of God and everyone this Alderman exclaimed in the Town Council session, “NIGGER SHOT MAH HOUSE!”

There were all these gasps and righteous indignation from the rest of the lilly white Council, and he was reprimanded for his language, but still... the fact remained that some... person... shot a gun at this guy’s house and he was pissed.

“There are girls who hide gang guns for their boyfriends.”

Gang members also have their girlfriends (the ones with no criminal records) buy guns for them. This points out the futility of the whole "background check" process. If a guy's too dangerous to be allowed to buy a gun, then he shouldn't be loose on the street in the first place.

Life and death in the Democrat nirvana known as Chicago, which has had only Democrat mayors since 1931. It’s Detroit with nicer architecture.

Funny how black leaders never talk about the corrosive influence rap music has had in the black culture over the last 20+ years.

Rap videos, rap stars, “gangstas” “hittas” “niggaz”—these are all role models today for blacks.

Baby daddies are the norm; black abortion rate is 7 out of 10. Single moms are 70% of black households.

Jesse and Al and the rest of the race pimps are silent in the face of the complete collapse of the black family.

Hey, if you can shake down Whitey for your own mistakes, it’s a good living.

A guy I know had to do just this... Right out of the military, he got into a fight and wound up with a felonious assault on his record. That was more than 30 years ago. His wife owns a couple of shotguns for home protection.

I was working with juvenile delinquents one day the mother of a run away approached me to help find her daughter.

I asked how long she was missing the mother said 3 months.

I asked the mother why she wanted her back now.

The mother said she heard her daughter won 2000 dollars at the local bingo hall.

The mother wanted what she thought was her share.

Why not? That's how Obama gets his information. But I'm willing to bet, she doesn't read the paper. She's definitely a low-information voter.

This is what St. Trayvon of the Skittles (SBUH) was fast on the way to becoming. When George Zimmerman exterminated that piece of subhuman debris, he saved many mostly innocent lives, and at no cost to the taxpayers.

“The mother said she heard her daughter won 2000 dollars at the local bingo hall. The mother wanted what she thought was her share.”

I’e maintained for decades that many of the permanent welfare population don’t love their children (and have taken a lot of flak for it). Every day I’m convinced of it more; I’m no saint but I sacrifice a lot for my children. I would never have them exposed to the mutants the welfare gibsmedats expose their children to every day.

“The movie Precious was an eye opener.”

Living near Newark NJ, the content wasn’t a surprise to me (the welfare fraud, ignorance, failure to assimilate); the real eye opener was that it was ever allowed to be put in the film.

Contrast it with the “bizarro world” depictions on TV that are so far from reality they are as credible as “Looney Tunes”...

The Offspring - Come Out and Play

You gotta keep’m separated

They’re like the latest fashion
They’re like a spreading disease
The kids are strappin’ on their way to the classroom
Getting weapons with the greatest of ease
The gangs stake out campus locale
And if they catch you slippin’ then it’s all over pal
If one guy’s colors and the other’s don’t mix
They’re gonna bash it up
Bash it up x3

Hey, man you talkin’ back to me

Hey, they don’t pay no mind
If you’re under 18 you won’t be doing any time
Hey, come out and play

By the time you hear the siren
It’s already too late
One goes to the morgue and the other jail
One guy’s wasted and the other’s a waste
It goes down the same as the thousand before
No one’s getting smarter
No one’s learning the score
Your never ending spree of death and violence and hate
Is gonna tie your own rope
Tie your own rope
Tie your own

Hey, man you disrespecting me
take him out

You gotta keeep’em separated
Hey, man you talkin’ back to me
take him out

You gotta keep’em separated
Hey, don’t pay no mind
If you’re under 18 you won’t be doing any time
Hey, come out and play

It goes down the same as the thousand before
No one’s getting smarter
No one’s learning the score
Your never ending spree of death and violence and hate
