    Jesse Jackson arrested outside Chicago area gun shop


    CHICAGO — The Rev. Jesse Jackson was arrested Saturday at a demonstration outside a south suburban gun shop and charged with one count of criminal trespass to property.

    Jackson was arrested when he refused to move away from the entrance to Chuck's Gun Shop in Riverdale, police said. He has protested with other community activists outside the shop in recent weeks after a 16-year-old honor student was gunned down on a city bus.

    Police said the shooting was gang-related but the teen was not the intended target.

    Jackson, who says the gun shop's proximity to Chicago provides gang members and criminals easy access to firearms, has used the protests to call for stricter gun laws.

    The Rev. Michael Pfleger, a Catholic priest who oversees a South Side congregation, also was arrested and charged with Jackson.

    A message seeking comment from the gun shop was not immediately returned Saturday afternoon.

    Two teens have been charged as adults with taking part in the May shooting of Blair Holt, an honor student at Julian High School.
    So, the gang members are buying their guns at this gun shop? Wow, in Memphis they just steal them for peoples houses and such. The gangs in Chicago are more law abiding than the ones here in West Tennessee. That's weird.....or could it be that Jesse Jackson is just an idiot and opportunist ?

    Good, I'm glad he got arrested, maybe he will go to jail for his criminal trespass.

    Why has Rev. Michael Pfleger not been arrested for hate speech, assault, and conspiracy to commit murder against John Riggio and Legislators at large?

    I edited the inflamatory portion out of the original post. I was voicing support for the arrest of someone that broke the law.

    I was also pointing out that if it were directed at me, I would have filed assault charges on the Rev. Pfleger. Free Speech or not, a threat is a threat.

    Jesse Jackson is a great man, who understands the plight of the minorities. His efforts to curb handgun violence by non violent protests should be commended, not attacked by gun nuts. His motives and views are obvious. If we disarm the people then criminals will have no reason to use guns. It is clear that criminals only use guns to defend themselves against citizens who would thwart their attempts to murder, rape and rob.

    Is satire OK here?

    Jesse Jackson would do anything to get his mug on TV or in the paper. What he should be doing is trying to stop the gang violance but this might be too dangerous for him sinse he prefers the gigs with police escorts.

    Tom G - I agree fully, that man will do anything for attention.

    I wouldn't let him mow my lawn, much less be a spokesperson on anything, he immediately twists issues to his own agenda and denies the obvious truth in whichever matter he is currently involved.

    How much ya'll wanna bet Minister Jackson, his minions, and/or protective service detail are armed (or have access to the same)?

    ...which would make him a hypocrite (but what's new, heh?)

    Not a surprise since I'm sure they intended to be arrested. They likely told their supporters before the rally that they were going to be arrested, and probably promised that it would happen.

    This brings more publicity to their actions than just a simple protest march. The surprise would have been if they were not arrested. Unlikely though because I'm sure they knew the law that they were violating and made sure that they violated it to get the arrest.

    +1 on the idiot & opportunist theory concerning Mr. Jackson. There is nothing reverent about him.
