AP on CNS ^

Posted on 09/02/2013 8:54:22 AM PDT by chessplayer

NEW YORK (AP) — A 1-year-old boy in a stroller was fatally shot in the face as his parents pushed him across a city street, and police continued looking for the gunman Monday.

Antiq Hennis and his parents were walking across a street in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn at about 7:20 p.m. Sunday when shots were fired and the boy was hit, police said. Investigators have yet to determine who was the intended target, and no arrests have been made, police said Monday.

Maybe if Obama outlaws some more WWI and WWII rifles the violence will stop.

Actually, it might not be a bad idea to send troops in to knock some heads in these gang-controlled neighborhoods. Of course, that will never happen. It's racist. Can't violate these yootz’ civil rights.

It wasn’t in “NYC”. It was in Brownsville, Brooklyn, which might as well be in the Ivory Coast.

“Actually, it might not be a bad idea to send troops in to knock some heads in these gang-controlled neighborhoods.”

That would violate the U. S. Constitution. This pseudo-administration has done enough of that. I do not want to see it trampled upon any more than it has already been trampled.

I do not want to see any precedents set. If they do it once and get away with it then you could be next on the list.

You should be saying, “Keep the troop involvement out of the U. S. A.”.

They were going for the father. Stroller had four holes in it. Bad aim.

Brooklyn is part of NYC. It’s one of the 5 boroughs.

The people that live in these areas have a set of morals and values so different from ours that they should be considered foreign. They hold our values and morals in contempt. Toward us they are hostile, dangerous, and deadly violent. Any white person who valued their life would quickly learn that there are certain areas they just should not go. This is literally foreign held enemy territory.

But like we learned in Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan you can easily occupy territory with troops but you can't easily change a culture of a people and nigh impossible to change their inherent nature.

Apparently a new sport in some communities. They just convicted a community member down in Georgia for doing that.

But NY has strict ‘gun control’ laws!!

Obviously the laws made it harder for law-abiding non-violent people to defend themselves, and easier for violent criminals to commit crime with guns.

Probably the "gun turned sideways" stance.

Are Al and Jesse on the scene? Guess not . . . looks like the scumbag that shot this little guy is a minority. Won’t see hide nor hare of Jackson and Sharpton. Neither will you here any outrage or comments by Obama or Holder.

True, but legalizing all drugs would bankrupt the gangs.

I agree the 'War on Drugs ' is a liberty eroding failure but ending it won't solve the underlying problems. Very few of these inner city gangs are anywhere close to what you call organized or are dependent on income to remain viable like there were the ghetto version of the Corleones. They are just a loose association of young men that grew up together and commit crimes together. If drugs are made legal these cretins wont' suddenly become upstanding citizens. They find other illicit ways to make money and may become even more dangerous. Plus you'll still have to contend with all the degenerate drug abusers who'll be degenerates on or off drugs.

With unrestricted drug availability, within a year or two druggies would mostly be dead from overdoses.

Well, except for ground hog holes.

Earlier today, my sons and I saw what appeared to be military chopper circling our neighborhood. My younger son, aged 18, seriously asked if Obama might be getting ready to drop bombs on us.

I told him that so far, O's only been using drones to kill Americans.

But Americans are genuinely wondering about this man. The racial mobs are seen to be a prelude to military action.

Read the U. S. Constitution. It’s in there. I am not going to do your research for you.

I’ve read it.

I say it ain’t there.

You say it is there; cite a reference.

What is there, in Article I Section 8, as a funtion of Congress, is “To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions; “
