Woman killed same day sister hears Obama speak of gun violence
Chicago Tribune ^ | February 16, 2013 | Carlos Sadovi

Posted on 02/16/2013 9:00:54 PM PST by ConservativeStatement

Hours after Destini Warren, 14, attended President Barack Obama’s speech against gun violence Friday, her family learned of a terrible irony.

Destini’s sister, Janay McFarlane, 18, was the victim of the very thing that the President was condemning at Hyde Park Academy in Chicago.

McFarlane, of the 8900 block of South Lowe Avenue, was visiting friends and family in North Chicago when she was shot on her way to a store in the northern suburb, her family said.

Is it a good or bad thing that she didn’t have her own gun to protect herself with? This is never the question they want you to ask.

How nice of the Chicago Tribune NOT to allow any comments on the article. God forbid that it might engender a contrary opinion to the Tribune’s not so subtle agenda.

If the one girl had not just (within hours, no less)attended Pres. Obama's "gun speech", would we be hearing anything about her sister's killing?

YES, I'm sorry the girl was killed...but this kind of relentess agenda-pushing is enough to turn a self-respecting kind-hearted person into a real cold-hearted cynic...enough already!! / rant

Obama was only complaining about white people having assault rifles with large magazines. The Democrat Party could care less about inner-city Blacks and Latinos offing each other with handguns.

“when she was shot on her way to a store”

Congress should pass a law banning black kids from walking to/ from “the store”.

Every time I hear about a black teen getting shot, “the store” is always part of the story. Walking to the store, walking home from the store, just “PIE-yow!” shot dead right there.

Coincidence?! I think NOT.

11:30PM. Walking alone to the store. 3 month old babies don’t sleep all night so how does she have the time to get out at that hour? Are there that many random shootings in Chicago, or was someone hunting her? Where is “Daddy” ?

This is a strange new world...

Make it like 'Gun Ban Britain'. The Bad News is that there are gun killing reported nearly every day, but the Good News is that by amazing coincidence there is often an armed police patrol that just happens to be passing by that can help aprehend the bad guys.
Britain disarmed by gun laws - forget it.

It would have been a "Statistical anomaly" if someone had not been shot in Chicago on a week end day, several someones at that.

This is such an awfully reported story. How was she shot? Who shot her? Any suspects..oh, excuse me “persons of interest?” Why is it that the paper left out pertinent details? Did the poor woman trip over a gun that went off, or was there an evil gun lying in wait for her just itching for the opportunity to shoot someone? Who knows?

If McFarlane had been at Hyde Park, where there were lots of people legally carrying loaded guns she would be alive today. Instead she was in a gun-free area and it cost her her life.

Only in certain cases. In other cases, killing is actually encouraged by people like Obomba.

You forgot about the cough syrup. And, I’m not sure you’re “allowed” to use the word “Skittles” any more either. I think it has been added to the list of “code” words for black people.

She was shot just hours after hussein’s speech. Ergo, hussein is responsible for gun violence. (That would be radical left wing extremist demokkkrat logic.) Not that he will actually ever be held responsible for anything.

The radical left wing extremist demokkkrats already tried that after the civil war. History sucks. Demokkkrats are not really the friends that blacks think they are. Just nobody ever taught them the history. Actually subverting history to suit their goals Sad. People don’t understand they are again being enslaved. This time by the big plantation in d.c.

LOL! The rev al. One of the “just-us” bros. Guy lives better than I do and never had a job until his gig at......whatever msm outlet he’s at. And then there’s the other half of the duo. Raised his son right except he forgot one important thing. DON’T GET CAUGHT! Gotta love chi-town.

As an aside, rev. al could say “skittles” because it’s okay for “them” to use the “code” words. His speech coach should give him his money back cause he ain’t gettin’ through.

Let us have an honest discussion about the problem ( not that any pol will do so)
Hadiyah Pendelton was killed by gang bangers targeting other gang bangers, but wait, she was smoking pot with second set of gang bangers.

Gang bangers usually have such poor aim or gun control that they could not hit the broadside MO.

The problem is not gun control, the problem is aim control, dumb ass gang bangers cannot hit what they aim at, put the homeys on the range with a little education.
Then watch the fireworks begin, pols going down like citizens, suddenly there will be no gun control problem
