    35 Hurt, 7 Killed in Chicago Shootings

    Weekend violence didn't stop for President Barack Obama's Chicago visit

    By Lisa Balde

    President Barack Obama's visit to Chicago didn't stop another violent weekend.

    At least seven people were killed and 35 were injured since Friday night. The youngest victim was a 16-year-old girl who died after she was shot three times in the chest Saturday evening in the Englewood neighborhood.

    Ten people were shot overnight Friday, and in one hour Sunday morning, three people were killed.

    Large American cities are no longer "policeable" since Rodney King and cell phone cameras. Why not? Because some people - winos, etc - only respond to "unconstitutional" pain.

    More Killed in Chicago this Year than Afghanistan
    Jarrett wedding assigned 200 cops

    EXCERPT

    While 144 Americans have died in Afghanistan in 2012, a whopping 228 Chicago residents have been killed, and the murder rate is up a staggering 35 percent from last year. That’s a rash of homicides quadruple the rate of New York City’s, and police and crime experts fear it may only get worse.

    About 15,000 murders in the US
    About 14,000 DWI deaths in the US

    But - a DWI death does not necessairly mean the drunk driver caused the death.

    Along those lines, I suppose a case could be made for the effectiveness of Saddam Hussein's dictatorship.

    Well, The "benign" dictatorship of Chicago by democrats certainly isn't working any better than the oppression of a Saddam Hussein.

    Just as muslims are very good at killing each other, Chicagoans are beginning to eat their own.

    Christians weren't being oppressed under Saddam, the oppressers were being suppressed.

    [edit] forgot to add the link:

    Why Did Assad, Saddam and Mubarak Protect Christians?

    "Hussein, by being intolerant of all sectarian violence, ensured that his minority-rule regime was safe from uprisings. The regime was equally intolerant of any sectarian-led violence, says Dawisha."

    Maybe a few of those Chicago hoods tossed in the ol' wood chipper would work wonders for law & order up there....

    Whatever that means...:tonofbricks:

    OK Your edit helped a lot. I think the wood chipper idea has some merit, starting with democrat leaders.

    Saddam kept the anti-Christian fanatics in line because he did not want trouble from the west.
