Four teens -- three 15-year-olds and a 16-year-old -- were among seven people shot across the South Side overnight, according to police.

A 15-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy were shot as they left a basketball game around 11:30 p.m. just east of Martin Luther King Drive in the Park Manor neighborhood, police and relatives said. A 49-year-old man was also shot.

MLK Drives are the worst neighborhoods in every city in which they appear.

That’s a shame.

Where is the outrage, media? Where is the outrage, Trayvon supporters?

If it is cloudy, he may address this situation. Otherwise, if it is sunny, he will be busy eating ice cream and smiling at fawning liberals.

It's just the Amish yutes again, so it didn't really happen. Anyway, only the devastating loss of Negro criminals that have just turned their life around, is worth getting upset over.

I think putting a spotlight on this is unproductive. Let them kill each other.

This is not the old soviet union. People can and do move from dangerous neighborhoods. Those that stay, do so at their own risk. They actually become part of the problem.

I heard he shot a 75.

Don't know about the back nine, though.

“... around 11:30 p.m. just east of Martin Luther King Drive...”

Good time and place to get shot...everywhere in America.

So, my son and I will be in Chicago at the end of the month. Am I correct in assuming that this really just animals shooting other animals and not anything random?

He probably figures that Chicago is the best place to get away with shooting black children.

4 teens shot within an hour: ‘It’s not a game, it’s not a joke’

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Not a game. Not a joke. But, isn’t this just the typical news du jour in Chicago?

Meanwhile - the racers ignore this while they continue to blather on and on about Trayvon.

Here. Here’s a little something for them to consider:

Trayvon Martin was lucky.

It was just a matter of time before he too was going to be killed. But instead of being part of the 98%, he was one of the lucky 2 percent of black kids that actually got killed by a cracker instead of another black punk.

And look how much loot his parents collected as a result!

Jackpot, baby!

Just make sure the perps are judged for the content of their character.

That's what I was thinking. What kind of basketball game is played at 11:30 at night "just east MLK Drive"?

Aside from the fact that these teens were in violation of both Illinois and Chicago curfew laws, 15 and 16 year olds running around there at 11:30 p.m. sounds like the beginning of a bad story no matter how it ends.
