A 15-year-old Chicago girl who reportedly performed with her schools marching band at several events for President Obamas inauguration last week was shot and killed on Tuesday afternoon, police said.
The girl, whom local reports identified as Hadiya Pendleton, died when a gunman opened fire on her and about a dozen other teenagers while they were hanging out at a park in Chicago, according to Chicago Police officer Jose Estrada.
For Obama, the shooting hits home at a time when he is pushing Congress to enact stricter gun laws that he says would curb not only mass shootings but also everyday gun violence in cities such as his home town of Chicago. This year so far, there have been more than 118 shooting incidents in Chicago, according to the citys crime statistics.
White House press secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday that the thoughts and prayers of President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama were with Pendletons family...

All you will get is this: “crickets”.
Too bad. Obama doesn’t care and will do nothing about the killing in Chicago. Now, about those rednecks in Alabama with their AR-15s....
And his Ballet Dancing mayor pirouettes on and on. Oh the thrill of it.
I’m sure it was a legally owned gun and the perp was an NRA member/s
So gun bans don’t work?
If only Chicago had stricter gun laws. Oh, wait...
Baraq and Rhambo just need to deputize the Million Moms for Gun Control and send them in to clean out the mess.
Paging Mr. Pierced Morgan, white courtesy phone please.
Hmmm... What could the cause be? Lack of a family structure? Undermining of the value and sanctity of human life with a pro-abortion society? Supporting these people through government handouts so they don’t have to work and have too much undisciplined free time? Prayer, Christianity, and absolute moral values being removed from the school? The known low IQ of typical inner-city blacks?
In their own words later in the story:
Several media outlets, including The Washington Post, reported that Pendleton, who relatives said was a majorette and volleyball player, had performed in the inaugural parade, with King College Preps band. But the band, which marched in the presidents first inaugural, did not perform this time.
So she wasn't even in DC. Yet the headline says otherwise.
Shot by a gang-banger in her own neighborhood, in a city with strict gun laws.
Why am I to blame ?
So when is the big-mouthed little fool Emmanuel going to do something about crime in his city. Or is that too much to ask of a mayor.
You’re not to blame. Fool politicians who want to look like they’re doing something are to blame.
The Dems only care when it’s a white suburban kid they can exploit to curry favour with white suburban soccer moms, the group that ensured Obama’s victory in 2012. A black girl in the inner city, killed by a black gang banger with an illegal handgun isn’t going to win those key swing voters. And Obama won’t say a word to criticize the poor misunderstood Boyz in da Hood.
time for martial law and occupation of Chicago. House to house search for every gun, drug or stolen property. DNA sample every person in the city! Curfew at 10. Schools protected by armed guards—all students searched. arrest and investigate corruption on all levels. Stop the killings! Too many children have died! Imagine in the KKK were shooting half as many what the media would clamer for?
