Do you think there was something about it being Father’s Day weekend that set them off?

It probably spawned an entire “Baby Daddy” arguement. I wonder if the vic’s were female?

Something about not knowing who their father was?

poppajoe49:”Something about not knowing who their father was?”

Yes. Probably a bit of a tasteless joke considering that the losing and maiming of human life is involved, but I believe fatherlessness and broken families is at the root of the mayhem in many cities.

Exactly, and it is way too pervasive in our throwaway society.
Unfortunately, the left seems to keep making the point that a child doesn’t need 2 parents, (unless they’re a gay couple) to raise a child. The problem with that theory is that boys tend to look for a father figure when there isn’t one in the home, which is why they end up gravitating to gangs, not for the crime, but for the structure and leadership they offer.

that is because all the cops were at Valerie Jarrett’s Daughter’s wedding. I mean what’s more important… The safety of the masses or making sure the masses don’t get near their royal highnesses?

I heard it was 200 cops. And surely Ms. Jarrett could have afforded private security?

Why must the media report people as “hurt” from gunfire when they were clearly WOUNDED? Could it be it sounds less lawless?

“President Obama and his family arrived in Chicago Friday evening. They attended the wedding of senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett’s daughter, and the president spent Father’s Day golfing with friends.”

Yea so a bunch of people shot each other and a few died, who cares, Obama had a wedding to go to and a golf game to play. The only reason Obama would be concerned is if they vote democrat, and in Chicago they still can, now that they are dead they can vote all over town…Just another day in the windy city.

Yes, and over a hundred city cops were needed to protect this Royal Wedding while Chicago further descends into Third World violence and insanity—are we turning into a Banana Republic or what?

In the county where I work, Spartanburg County, in SC you could not turn on the news at night without hearing about a murder or homicide etc. Finally the Sherriff had enough he encouraged all citizens to go out and get a concealed weapons permit, the result the crime rate has dropped dramatically. Ask your self. If I am a criminal who will be my victim? the possibly armed person or the person who I know is unarmed?

Obviously, the answer is to outlaw guns.

42 people killed and wounded over one hot weekend in Chicago. Unlike Treyvon Martin, none of the victims will be remembered by the MSM. They will not be eulogized by President Obama. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton will not fly into Chicago and lead marches demanding justice for the victims. The New Black Panthers will not post a reward for the capture of the perps. If arrested, the shooters will not be identified as “white Hispanics”. If some of the alleged shooters are found innocent by a jury there will be no riots. No one will care

No one will care because there’s no political gain to be made from all the mayhem.

It’s going to be a long, hot summer in Chicago, Olivia will have plenty of work to do in the emergency room.

Black on black crime doesn’t warrant headlines.
No race baiting to be had there.

Hey poppa, way off topic but I really screwed up in my job and think you’ll figure out exactly what I mean without me writing a book. I’m gonna hijack an old dead thread and post the link here later. Really need to vent and kick my own ass if you don’t mind?

Your personal firearm is like an American Express card – “Don’t leave home without it!”

Where is jack ass and charalton on this issue? Barry can’t be bothered with speaking up now. Why is that? As FormerlyHDean has stated enaffective gun laws and the restriction of individuals to defend themselves is what is being displayed. This proves the old saying “when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have them”. From a duly sworn officers perspective, arm yourself to protect yourself. By the time we arrive the crime is over and all that is left is the carnage.
