Over the period 2004-2009, 18,377 pedestrians were mowed down by cars here. And the report noted that about 2 hit-and-run crashes resulting in a pedestrian getting maimed or killed occur every day in Chicago.

With half a million illegal aliens in the state and most in "sanctuary city," Chicago, it would be a fair speculation that they are the cause of the wildly above average rate of fatal hit-and-runs here.

The average sentient citizen is eminently cognizant of the victimization of the populace by illegal alien drivers, but of course, the Tribune wouldn't dare systematically look into the phenomenon for fear of what it might find.

But there is no shortage of salient examples.

I guess it won't matter until one of Rahm Emanuel's family members is mowed down crossing the street.

Stopping and rendering aid is just another American kind of law that they don't feel pertains to them. It's too inconvenient so why bother.

Check out the hit-and-run rates in some of the sending nations --- very very high.

You're right. For some, it isn't an issue until it hits home. Even then, he would probably forgive them if he thought it would improve his chances for re-election. Most politicians are ruthless narcissists, who only care about power. They would be willing to throw their own mother under the bus.

I wonder how many must be maimed or killed by irresponsible illegal aliens before it becomes important enough to take action. Sadly, this is happening nationwide. Only a lowlife can hit a human being without stopping. Heck, I couldn't hit a dog and keep driving. Yet, many pro-illegals defend this behavior, and try to blame it on their inability to obtain a license. I am still waiting for someone to explain how a driver's license would prevent drunks from driving.

We are so on the same page. Sadly, I think if one of their relatives was maimed or killed by an illegal, if it happened during an election cycle said candidate would forgive the illegal if he voted for him.

Hit someone in Mexico and you'd better run like hell. You'll be in prison until you've paid the cost and damages. To many, insurance is a foreign concept.

I've had several Asian clients ask why they need homeowners insurance if they are paying cash for a home.

Since it has become a sanctuary, it's beginning to resemble a war zone, Rahm doesn't seem to care. You have to wonder what the hell is wrong with the people in power that are enabling them.


Forty-nine Shot in One Weekend

These include a valid FOID (firearm owner identification through the state police) card; two identical photos taken within a 30 day period; a current state driver's license or facsimile; five hours of gun training from a State Certified Instructor; paying a fee of $100 with your certificate of completing said course; and only one office located in downtown Chicago to get validated.[8] Many hoops were legislated to jump through by Daley and his cronies just so law-abiding people can protect themselves. As an Illinois resident, if there were just one-half of these requirements to vote in our state then our elections would probably turn out a bit differently. Secondly, Chicago is a sanctuary city when it comes to undocumented workers. I am quite confident in saying that many of those illegals possess firearms in the city limits.

I've had several Asian clients ask why they need homeowners insurance if they are paying cash for a home.
I had an Asian make a left (25 ft.) in front of me, just as I reached the intersection at 30MPH. Her child wasn't seat belted in (the child was standing in the passenger seat crying). She also didn't have her license and PoI, so she left her child in the care of my passenger while she hoofed it to her home a block away to get them.

She was driving a brand new Mercedes, my lawyers found was borrowed. She spoke no english and the police didn't arrest her, even though she walked away from the scene, and back after they (the cops) were on scene.

----

Fast forward a few years:

My dually was parked in front of my home, when at 1am a car tore into it at 40MPH (the cops estimated). My truck saved the life of the Dominoes pizza delivery guy who also happened to be an uninsured illegal alien, driving an almost new Volvo, which just happened be... borrowed.

Since my now totalled truck was parked, and he was uninsured, I was screwed. BTW, he didn't speak english, wasn't insured, and the cops didn't arrest him.

California easily rivals Illinois for crazyness. If I had been at fault for any of the accidents, (I've had 4 involving illegals so far) with no insurance, I would have been tossed in jail.

It's mind-boggling. Why isn't Obama addressing these senseless acts of violence occurring on a regular basis in Chicago and other cities across this country? Why isn't this issue as important to him as DACA for illegal aliens? And, not a word is mentioned by the MSM. Why?
