    Terrible Weekend in Chicago!

    U.S. News - Chicago bloodbath: 6-year-old among those killed

    It looks like things are really out of control in Chicago this weekend! I don't know about situational awareness in some of these drive-by's other than staying indoors. That city certainly has it's work cut out for itself to clean things up. I think it's time to send the SWAT teams into the affected areas for checkpoints, seaches and what ever else is necessary......

    Not sure how much SA a 6 yo should have. They have to clean up that turd of a city or its going to get a lot worse if the gang bangers know they can get away with this crap.

    It's been bad all this time... They either have to put a cop literally in every block or they need to allow the citizens to start defending themselves... Either way this is going to get worst before it gets better.

    The level of violence in certain Chicago neighborhoods has been incredibly bad for decades now. You should hear some of the stories my former boss told us about his visits to his step-daughter that lived in one of the less bad neighborhoods.

    It's hard to believe that the level of violence and danger in those places can exist in America where peace is the norm. The step-daughters house was hit more than once by stray gun fire. There were dog fights held in the basements of neighboring places, stabbings, and theft was rampant. Drugs did not flow freely, but were easy enough to get if you were willing to walk a block or two.

    One of the step-daughter's boyfriends is in prison for shooting one of his (many) kids teachers in the face and killing them. He didn't even know why he killed the teacher, it just felt right was what he told his now ex-gf. How do you combat that kind of mentality?

    Not so hard to believe when they make the entire city a "Criminal Safe Zone" due to banning of legal firearms so law abiding citizens can't defend themselves, or their families. But the authorities there just don't get it.

    Hartford's proud---as in the Mayor and chief of police on the news for weeks recently telling the ravaged shot at innercity peoples that the new hearing system will alert the police to shots being fired to within a half city block. and this is good cause the ones needing protection from the drive bys and sidewalk shoot outs are to afraid...lazy or scared to phone in the shots fired so we need to do it for them...

    simple is --if criminals have a 88% recividism rate, than do away with parol. if in jail they can not harm people at home, its rather a nobrainer...
    the judge said 8 years, than we, the people are safe from that individual for 8 years.

    but, follow the money---the lawyers and the court system thrives on retrying the same individuals over and over agine. there is more money in that than in keeping them in prsion and keeping the streets safer.

    Claude,
    You've made a good point. Early release and parole/probation do ensure job security for DAs and the rest of the so-called Criminal Justice System. Those who profit from running the prisons will do well in any case, their cells will stay full.

    The only losers in this game are the law abiding, tax paying victims.

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    Sorry, but I don't feel sorry for anyone in Chicago.... they are the one's who have continued to elect the politicans who are against the citizenry being able to protect themselves. The corruption in Chicago and gangs of all types over the last nearly 100 yrs, has continued to feed the snake that is devouring them.

    Who elected those politicians again? You don't really believe anyone is elected in Chicago do you? By the living citizens of Chicago? Nah... C'mon... everybody knows bett'r'n that.

    I left long before my voting age... I can almost guarantee I have voted in several elections in Chicago, both before and after I left.

    Uncle George, my columnist relation who wrote for the Sun Times for decades certainly knew better... and taught me the same...

    All big cities are like this now and it's been moving into the rual areas, white fight is running out of places to run too since their daughters are dating and having gangbanger babies. Hows that for the truth.....somebody was right years ago but was stopped by our great government......too late now, the cows out the gate and running for the road....
    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    As if there isn't, and die to find out there is.
