Michelle Obama in 1997 organized a university event in which she invited her husband, Sen. Barack Obama, and former Weathermen radical Bill Ayers to serve on a panel discussion about whether child murderers should be tried as adults.
Both Barack Obama and Ayers served on the side that opposed treating offending minors as adults.
Michelle Obama at the time was the University of Chicago's associate dean of Student Services and director of the college's Community Service Center, which sponsored the juvenile detention discussion Nov. 20, 1997.

Should a child ever be called a super predator?
A panel at the University of Chicago debates the merits of the juvenile justice system
Children who kill are called super predators, people with no conscience, feral pre-social beingsand adults.
William Ayers, author of A Kind and Just Parent: The Children of Juvenile Court(Beacon Press, 1997), says We should call a child a child. A 13-year-old who picks up a gun isnt suddenly an adult. We have to ask other questions: How did he get the gun? Where did it come from?
Ayers, who spent a year observing the Cook County Temporary Juvenile Detention Center in Chicago, is one of four panelists who will speak on juvenile justice at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 20, in the C-Shop of the Reynolds Club, 5706 S. University Ave.
The panel, which marks the 100th anniversary of the juvenile justice system in the United States, is part of the Community Service Centers monthly discussion series on issues affecting the city of Chicago.
The event is free and open to the public.
Ayers will be joined by Illinois State Sen. Barack Obama, Senior Lecturer in the University of Chicago Law School, who is working to block proposed legislation that would throw more juvenile offenders into the adult system; Randolph Stone, Director of the Mandel Legal Aid Clinic at the University of Chicago; Alex Correa, a reformed juvenile offender who spent 7 years in Cook County Temporary Detention Center; Frank Tobin, a former priest and teacher in the Detention Center who helped Correa; and Willy Baldwin, who grew up in public housing and is currently a teacher in the Detention Center.
The juvenile justice system was founded by Chicago reformer Jane Addams, who advocated the establishment of a separate court system for children which would act like a kind and just parent for children in crisis.
One hundred years later, the system is overcrowded, under-funded, over-centralized and racist, Ayers said.
Michelle Obama, Associate Dean of Student Services and Director of the University of Chicago Community Service Center, hopes bringing issues like this to campus will open a dialogue between members of the University community and the broader community.
We know that issues like juvenile justice impact each of us who live in the city of Chicago. This panel gives community members and students a chance to hear about the juvenile justice system not only on a theoretical level, but from the people who have experienced it.

goodness, Michelle Obama............
I saw a commercial with Michelle Obama. She talked about how when she and Barack were dating. And she said he took her to a community organizing event. She said how he worked the crowd and was gearing up to help people who were laid off from industrial jobs and had life challenges. She said she got a real view of the world as it is, and the world as it could be that night.
And, she said that she fell in love with Obama that night. I couldn’t believe my ears. I can’t say anything about people’s personal relationships. But, even in campaign ads trying to show us something of Barack Obama as a family man, his wife says his political skills are what made her fall in love with him. Unbelievable..........
The Bomber Ayers, Mr. SDS Weatherman, speaks his crap again, abd agin Obama is right there with him.
GAME CHANGER! Ayers and ACORN linked in debate! Obama cornered into pathetic lie:
MCCAIN: Yes, real quick. Mr. Ayers, I don’t care about an old washed-up terrorist. But as Senator Clinton said in her debates with you, we need to know the full extent of that relationship.
Obama: And I think the fact that this has become such an important part of your campaign, Senator McCain, says more about your campaign than it says about me.
MCCAIN: Well, again, while you were on the board of the Woods Foundation, you and Mr. Ayers, together, you sent $230,000 to ACORN. So and you launched your political campaign in Mr. Ayers living room.
OBAMA: Thats absolutely not true.
MCCAIN: And the facts are facts and records are records.
OBAMA: And thats not the facts.
MCCAIN: And its not the fact its not the fact that Senator Obama chooses to associate with a guy who in 2001 said that he wished he had have bombed more, and he had a long association with him. Its the fact that all the all of the details need to be known about Senator Obamas relationship with them and with ACORN and the American people will make a judgment.
[McCain cornered him to the point that BO lied his tail off. McCain kicked his ‘you know what’.]
In other words, she didn't have a job.
That is really what makes me mad is this man actually said on tv he had no dealings with Ayers when he has really been working with him all these years.
ABC,NBC,CBS, MSM’s Worlwide, where is your rebuttal for your poster boys? Ayers and Obama?
We’re closing in!
Unfortunately, as Rush says, this election will be decided by people who don’t care much and know little about politics: the “undecideds” or “independents.” Woe is to us if we get stuck with BHO, Reid and Pelosi for the next four.
Bottom line -
Obama has been in the middle of a culture of revolutionary Marxist thinkers and activists. ACORN, Wright, Ayers. Add in the interest abroad in Kenya (Odinga). We see his world view, and we see that he views the Federal government’s role as that to play a central role in business and that people need to depend on the Federal government and without it they cannot succeed.
Will this be reported in the media and where are the 527 groups?? I am afraid there may not be any??
“Just some guy who lives in the neighborhood...”
From what I’ve been hearing of him, Rush Limbaugh only ‘says’ that to mock the moderate chasers. I think you misunderstood him at some point.
“McCain cornered him to the point that BO lied his tail off.”
And, it just won’t matter. It will not even be mentioned by most of the Mainstream Media.
The MSM lines were already written, long befoe the debate even began.
Michelle and Bill are probably planning the inaugural ball right now.
0bama is the penultimate Victicrat. In his culture of victimhood if you're not a victim you're an oppressor. He even pulled the Victim Card for himself last night.
"Wahhhhhh, Palin supporters said mean things about me. Wahhhhhhh!"
(Never mind that the SS can't find any witnesses except one kook reporter.)
