A 10-year-old girl was shot in the head and critically injured by a stray bullet fired into her home in the Garfield Park neighborhood Friday afternoon, authorities said.

The girl, and another 12-year-old shot in the same neighborhood, are among 22 people shot between about 3:30 p.m. and 3 a.m.

Let me guess. These shootings were committed by “teenagers” and they were all starting to “turn their lives around”.

I believe the propogandists in the enemedia refer to them as "aspiring rap stars".

Why the hell are Democrats such a violent species? Between their fondness for killing babies as an option and this element that seemingly has no respect for human life.

Speaking of the enemedia... Isn’t it funny how there is never any mention of these shooting occuring in a POS libtard-run city with some of the most stringent gun laws in the country? These people are so stupid they should be charged for their oxygen...

Somebody ought to do something. Maybe the gov will call for banning “assault weapons” and .50 cal Barretts. Oh, wait. He’s already headed down that road. That ought to stop some of the carnage in chit-cago since those items seem to be commonly used there. They’re not? Hmmm. What a mess. Just send more tax dollars. I think jessuh jackshun wanted the lyin’ king to pony up a chunk of change. Like $2 mil or $2 bil. Don’t matter if it ain’t your money.

I have used this example in the past but during a past Olympics season, I recorded an event which eventually was followed by a Rachel Maddow show. I heard her say “San Francisco is what happens when liberals run cities. So why are Conservatives so... (afraid or reluctant — whatever word she used).” It is either being naive or an attempt at brainwashing but another example of liberals not being lucid.

...by a stray bullet fired into her home...

"Stray" doesn't fit the definition - if the shooter was firing in a different direction and had a group going, then this might be a "stray" bullet - I guess it's the easier and kinder way to treat minority gangbangers - blame it on the bullet going "astray".

Just another Friday night in Chicago, the youths are blowing off some steam.

How come they got so much steam, anyway?

Now, if in high school, say maybe tenth-year students, they would give them a course of training in the use, care, and operation of firearms, there might not be so many of these stray shots flying around. The youths could then trade shots at each other much more accurately, without wasting all this extra ammunition. (Oh, criminy, do I HAVE to put on the < /sarc > tag?)

Shootings by stray bullets don’t count - it’s all about intent. Besides, how can anyone dumb enough to shoot their gun while holding it sideways be held accountable?

For all the idiotic things Bloomberg did in NYC, at least he understands what crime does to a city, but using "stop and frisk" as a legitimate crime prevention tool...he literally saved hundreds of lives from being gunned down in the big apple...

Rahm if he even cared an micrometer about the blacks in Chicago would vigorously enforce a similar type policy...

But he's more concerned about his political ass then the lives of mostly innocent blacks killed in the crossfire of gangland wars...

But, he's got to keep his plantation voters scared and dependent on their masters...

You know I was thinking the same thing. The left always says the right has blood on its hands when a mass shooting occurs but look who’s talking. The party that supports the mass slaughter of American babies every year and one that has controlled a city where mass shootings are seemingly an everyday occurrence. It’s getting to the point where Chicago officials will have to be giving us a weekly press conference giving the body count just as they did during the Vietnam War. I doubt too many Ted Cruz for president bumper stickers are visible in the Windy City.

"The Great Society and all of its subsequent iterations have brought us here."

I believe it's the progressive liberals who have caused ALL the murder and mayhem in our society today... It's the drug culture that receives continuing support from the left that has caused the collapse of the American family... And it is being done with malice of forethought...and therein lies the problem...

We always speak of Hitler or Mao Tse-Tung and how many people they murdered in their rise to power... What about the Progress left in America... How many people have they murdered in their effort to destroy our Constitutional Republic..?

The left and their drugs....just as effective as poison gas ever was...

If Chicago would offer $6000 tax free a month to adopt gang members the shootings would stop see Obama&Co logic.

Proof positive that more thorough background checks would make Chicago and the rest of the planet a utopia.

I’ll bet not one of the shooters purchased their firearms from an FFL.

The chaos in our inner cities is a direct result of public policy. The generational poverty in the rural mountain areas of the US is also the result of policy. This is being perpetrated in the name of “social justice” which means one thing to the “useful idiots” who don’t get the big picture, and another thing to the elites of both parties.

The ruling elite believes they know what’s best for us and that everything that made us what we once were (Judeo-Christian tradition, limited government, individualism, free enterprise, work ethic, cheap energy, and freedom) must be demolished. The elites envision a world government run by an oligarchy of benign dictators where there are two classes: the proletariat and ruling class, which would be exempt from the nightmare existence they will foist on the rest of us. The middle class is being wiped out as everyone is banished to the lowest common denominator. That will be “SOCIAL JUSTICE”, when America looks like Chicago, Detroit, and Camden, New Jersey.

"Stray (bullet) doesn't fit the definition

How 'bout: "A 10-year-old girl was shot in the head and critically injured by a stray & feral black who fired a bullet into her home. ??

The girl, and another 12-year-old shot in the same neighborhood, are among 22 people shot between about 3:30 p.m. and 3 a.m.

Hey you loser Eric Holder - the 22 people shot in Chicago this week-end are twenty-two MORE than were shot by Tea Party Members SINCE Obama took office. (actually 22 more than was EVER shot by Tea Party members)

Wake up from your paranoia Holder - these killings aren't from conservative 'lone wolves' - they're from black gang bangers ...in your hometown of Chicago. Do you NOT care Holder because in your mind black deaths don't count as much as white (possible) deaths?

Stop the Chicago slaughter Holder... wake up smell the coffee...
