A few weekends ago it was 40 shot in Chicago. All of this occurring in Jesse Jackson and President Obama's hometown yet no comment from either of them. I guess none of the dead or wounded would look like Obama's mythical son.


17 shot, 2 dead, overnight across city - chicagotribune.com

A 13-year-old boy and 41-year-old woman were killed by gunfire Saturday night, and 15 others were wounded across the city, police said.

The 13-year-old was among three teens shot just before 10 p.m. Saturday on the 4600 block of South Spaulding Avenue in the Brighton Park neighborhood on the Southwest Side, police said. He was shot in the head and body and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead of multiple gunshot wounds at 10:19 p.m., officials said.

The other two victims — a 15-year-old boy shot in the forearm and thigh and a 16-year-old boy shot in the arm — were taken to John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County, police said.

"All of this occurring in Jesse Jackson and President Obama's hometown yet no comment from either of them."

Why would they have to say anything? Do they have to make a note on every crime that happens in Chicago?

Also, Jesse Jackson doesn't get involved unless it was racially motivated.

Must have been that white guy from Tulsa who drove to Chicago.

But seriously... what is up with Chicago lately ? It has more crime then Detroit. Is there a drug war going on ?

Default Gangs.........

I'm certain these FOID holders will turn in their registered handguns to Chicago PD asap since they do not allow possession of handguns within the city limits of Chicago without both training and registration.

Know what? They didn't find time to comment on murders in the other 50 states yesterday either.

So please, look up a murder in every state yesterday, make a thread about each one, tell us about it, give us a link, and then tell us how Obama and Jesse Jackson didn't mention it.

Hell...don't stop there. Tell us about the murders those two haven't commented on in the Congo, Brazil, Germany, Italy, England, Jamaica, etc, etc....because "inquring minds wanna know."

Okay? Problem solved.

Were 17 shot in any other city in America yesterday?

More deflection and denial from the usual sources, 17 shot means nothing to them. What a strange people.

Deflect? What in the hell was the intent of this thread in the first place? Deflect from what? I could've read that story on any website. What exactly are we supposed to say about it?

People getting shot means nothing to them? What does it mean to you? Do you know these people? I don't. Guess what? After i read the link, it doesn't really mean anything to me either 5 minutes after i closed it. Or was it your expectation that everyone that read your link would lose sleep?

Ok...i've changed my mind. I'm gonna lose sleep tonite. In fact, i'm getting such a headache and so emotional about the link, that i'm going to cry all day and i'm about to pop 2 Advil's.

There. Happy now?

Face it, JJ and AS don't care about people being killed...unless they can gain personally from it. Vultures of the worst sort.
