Ten people were killed and at least 39 others were wounded in shootings across the (Chicago) city this weekend.
Most of the victims, male and female, ranged in age from their mid-teens to 30s, with the notable exception of a 6-year-old girl who was shot dead as she played on the front porch of her home in the Little Village neighborhood.
Neighbors said Aliyah Shell was playing on the porch of her home in the 3100 block of South Springfield Avenue about 3:40 p.m. Saturday while her parents sat on the front steps. A small gray pickup truck stopped in the street and one person inside got out and fired four shots -- two of them hitting the little girl.
Aliyah was struck twice and initially was taken in critical condition to Mount Sinai Hospital, police said. She was declared dead at 5:24 p.m., the Cook County Medical Examiners office said.

If Obama had an enormous family, his family would look like all these guys.
This is unpossible. Chicago doesn’t allow guns.
I’m sure most of the shooters were white males with concealed carry permits.
I’m sure most of them looked like O’s son....
I put a Scanner Radio app on my smartphone - Chicago PD is the most listened to - there’s 453 people listening to the Chicago PD scanner right now on that App - I’m one of them
(my town’s scanner, thankfully, is usually boring)
Where is Obama’s outrage at the death of a 6-year-old girl?
I thought it was 10 dead 46 wounded.
Is this gang related violence? Or just kids out to have some fun?
Well, can she help him politically?
No? I didn’t think so. So he’s not there for her.
The little girl wouldn’t look like him.
,,,,, no problem here ,,, a typical weekend in beautiful downtown Chitown .
1) let men marry men
2)let women marry women
3)Allow unlimited abortions to eveyone at taxpayer expense
In three generations there will be NO DEMOCRATS .
“In three generations there will be NO DEMOCRATS.”
Oh would that it would be so!
Still don’t understand why people don’t believe in Darwinism. Nature fields itself.
When will Jesse be agitatin’?
,,, try that again ,,, I don’t speak double talk .
I listen to Chicago PD scanner very infrequently - here’s a link to listen to it online if you wish
(much clearer than the Droid App :)
“Where is Obamas outrage at the death of a 6-year-old girl?”
No political advantage, or racial animosity to be gained, from these deaths. It’s just the “Chicago Way” after all.
Nope. Maybe he could blame the lack of midnight basketball programs, but not near as much in campaign benefits to gain by exploiting the Treyvon Martin death.
,,,,, welcome to Freerepublic newbie ,,,,, don’t be nervous ,,,,,this is a warm and fuzzie place for the RIGHT people .
This can’t be. Where are the Hoodies? Hoodies unite!
Those appear to be accidental shootings, no malice noticed at all. /s
Take a look at the photo of that beautiful little girl again before you post such nonsense.
“White Hispanics” are on a rampage.
LOL - IF ANY of the shooters were white middle class men with conceal carry permits - the whole circus in Florida would pack up and move to Chicago.
White shooters trump Hispanic shooters when it comes to high drama and media hysteria. The MSM wants white middle-class blood. They don't care about black deaths - if they did they would be in Chicago - camping out on the south side - asking REAL questions. But they aren't - and they won't.
This is political grandstanding. Black teens are killed by black men. That's the norm. That's what the crime statistics show.
When I saw the headline I thought it was an Article about Syria
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD;.......... “ (Psalm 33:12a)
“By mercy and truth iniquity is purged; and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.” (Proverbs 16:6)
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)
“But the fearful, and unbelieving and the abominable; and
murderers; And whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolators, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” (Revelation 21:8)
Just replying to your words in Post #12.
Thanks; nice to be here.
Obama issued a statement, “When I think of that six year-old girl, I think of my own daughters” err, wait...
Might be Muslim copycats out to agitate and divide and provoke reprisals which provoke further reprisals.
A lot of drive by shootings. Perhaps they should outlaw driving. /s
Obama voter rolls reduced substantially...now they vote from the cemetary.
Must be caused by “Unequalization”.
“Where is Obamas outrage at the death of a 6-year-old girl?”
That was just some bidness between the brothers. Nothing for Barry to get upset about.
Aliyah Shell, the 6-year-old girl killed in Chicago, really looked like Obama’s daughter Sasha, but the parent-in-chief ignored Aliyah’s killing ...
“When I saw the headline I thought it was an Article about Syria”
Chicago has been worse than Syria for a century ...
Chicago Chicago ....my kind of town....
All across our country and in every aspect of our lives, Obama is “Fundamentally Changing America”.
I take comfort in knowing that Obama is using his “laser-like focus” to fix these problems.
I am thinking that Obama’s promised “shovel ready jobs” are finally here.... the shovels were for digging graves, lots and lots of graves.
“Obama issued a statement, When I think of that six year-old girl, I think of my own daughters err, wait...”
Obama was also “thinking of his daughters” when he called that big “pay for my sex” Fluke...
“Obamas promised shovel ready jobs are finally here.... the shovels were for digging graves, lots and lots of graves.”
Hey BO, if you had a sonhed look like this kid, too. Any spare outrage at the many atrocities that your people commit, as opposed to a single incident in which the white Hispanic-(whatever that is)-guy might have actually been justified?
Starvation and torture don't count unless done by a white Hispanic to a black child. Or a white middle class person with conceal carry to a black child. But black on black torture doesn't seem to count for much. Doesn't count just like black on black murder doesn't count.
That said, my prayers are for the child - prayers that God will hold and heal the child's pain and wipe out memories of evil parents.
It does make you wonder about the selective outrage of liberals.
The ongoing violence, much of it gang related, in our ghettos, is staggering. Yet it is almost never talked about by politicians, the MSM, or people such as Al Sharpton.
Yet, one tragic incident in Florida, because the victim was black, and the shooter not black, has triggered a wave of hysteria among the liberals.
To listen to these liberals, you would swear that society, and the south in particular, has not changed at all since the days of Emmitt Till. Yet, now we are having a liberal angst session about the danger to black youth from racist people with guns.
The truth is, the biggest danger to black youth is other black men with guns, but that story never gets reported.
Thanks for posting that. Bookmarked.
Another factor - in Florida Hispanics vote Republican... and they’re highly responsible good citizens. That would also make them targets of the MSM...
Two journalists in this video are elitists who dont know a conservative is in the room taping them. They laugh about how they “helped’ Obama - how NPR cheats, and how stupid conservatives are... New York Times connected - watch it to see that our worst fears about ‘journalists’ are true:
Sorry mom...NEVER. Doncha know? He's a POS.
I saw the photo and I know it’s easy let emotion blind us to flaws in our culture. Until we take responsibility for our actions there will be no end to the senseless deaths of other beautiful and innocent children.
