    Why is it that the Gov't can regulate so much of my business that it makes my head spin, but they do absolutely nothing about gangs until they do something???? Why not make gang members get background checks and ID cards before they can join a gang or all the other frivilous crap they make me do for my business.

    So many resources that the Gov't has, but so much of a waste of them.

    5 Shot After Chicago High School Basketball Game


    CHICAGO Five people were shot as spectators left a crowded high school basketball game Friday in what police called a possibly gang-related drive-by attack that sent panicked students running into a snowy street on the city's South Side.

    Five males three in serious condition and two in critical were taken from Paul Laurence Dunbar Vocational Career Academy around 8 p.m., said Chicago Fire Department spokeswoman Eve Rodriguez. Hospital spokespeople said later that at least three were expected to be treated and released.

    "It was crazy. It was like killers on the loose," said Joshua Glaze, 15, a freshman at the school.

    The game was in overtime and some students began to leave the building, Glaze said.

    A vehicle then drove up and a person or people inside started shooting into the crowd, said Chicago Police Superintendent Jody Weis.

    No suspect has been identified or arrested, but the shooting was "isolated" and possibly gang-related, Weis said. Two hundred officers were in the area looking for suspects, he said.

    Dunbar freshman Shaneisha Turman, 15, said she saw a silver truck pull up to a bus stop outside the school. People inside the truck pretended to fire a gun and then "they really started shooting," she told the Chicago Tribune.

    People were shouting, "'They're shooting!"' Turman said. "It was a lot of people shouting and running."

    Police blocked access to streets at least two blocks from the high school to make way for ambulances and police cars.

    Andres Durbak, director of the city schools' Office of Safety and Security, said video taken in and around the school has been handed over to police.

    "This is a tragedy," Durbak said.

    Police spokeswoman Monique Bond declined to characterize the victims beyond gender and would not say whether they had attended the basketball game. She added that they were "not necessarily students."

    The high school has about 1,600 students and is the alma mater of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Hudson.

    And here I thought that guns were outlawed in Blago-Bama-Berg!!!

    Chicago South Side, no surprise there. Besides, this wasn't a drive by shooting, it was just "home boys" celebrating winning the game!

    CHANGE "CHICAGO STYLE"

    Body count. In the last six months:
    Chicago - 292 killed (murdered)
    Iraq - 221

    Chicago is a combat zone.
    Who is in charge?
    (The leadership in Illinois.)
    Senator Barack Obama (Democrat)
    Senator Dick Durbin (Democrat)
    Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. (Democrat)
    Governor Rod Blogojevich (Democrat)
    House leader Mike Madigan (Democrat)
    Attorney General. Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike),(Democrat)
    Mayor Richard M. Daley (son of former Mayor Richard J.Daley) (Democrat)

    Of course they're all blaming each other.

    Why?

    They can't blame Republicans, there aren't any!

    State pension fund - $44 Billion in debt, worst in country. Cook
    County (Chicago)

    Sales tax 10.25% highest in country. (Look it up up if you want).
    Sales taxes in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Chicago school system - one of the worst in country.

    This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois.

    And he says he is going to "fix" Washington politics?

    Ah!! He deserves credit for the wisdom to find a way out of there.

    Let's face it folks. We have a tremendous insoluble problem in our most urban areas. This crazy stuff happens all over these days, even in smaller urban centers. There have always been gangs in America. There have always been thugs and fools, and gangsters, and "highwaymen." IT is a constant struggle for civilized folks to keep it contained.

    To be more specific, I think he said he was going to bring 'change' to Washington.
    He's going to change out Washington politics for Chicago politics.
    The guy is in way over his head. Reminds me of Jimmy.
