4 teens shot within an hour: 'It's not a game, it's not a joke'
Chicago Tribune ^ | August 15, 2013 | Peter Nickeas

Posted on 08/15/2013 7:09:27 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement

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.

Maybe like George Zimmerman, they should have stayed home and not been outside. /s

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.

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!

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.

Similar to many major cities, Chicago has better areas than others. The South Side is generally considered the hotbed for significance violence and the Tribune has published maps which compare neighborhoods. Some of the crime has encroached into the better areas but the shootings and such remain in higher probability in certain ‘hoods. That said, I would never let my guard down while visiting a city.

How many of the fathers of murdered Chicago children have been named honorary captains of football teams similar to Trayvon Martin's dad and FAMU?

There must be a typo in this article, no way it came from Chicago. They have very strict gun laws so nothing like this can happen there!

Gun control? Most definitely a joke. It disarms victims and emboldens law-breakers.

If you think about it a violent Chicago actually serves a purpose for the anti-gun liberal and Democrat Party.

Without doing anything to solve the issue of Black-on-Black violence there, they can continue to point to Chicago as a reason for more gun control.

Happened to me last year. I left STL and was heading into IL to visit son and family. I took a wrong turn and ended up in E. St. Louis. I called son for directions out. He Told me to take the next left, and don’t stop until until I got to E. Alton.

The fawning liberals are why he ALWAYS has to be traveling somewhere. His narcissism requires that he sees the brainless admirers worshipping him in person.

Stay away from Martin Luther King Drives wherever you are, and your chances of getting shot diminish greatly.

Nope. This time it was Martin Luther King's fault.

Curious why we cannot tag stories with the label of “blackcrime”? I did that before and was told it was verboten. I am curious of the rationale behind that as we are talking about stories relating to African-American crime.

Indirectly, all of them. Everything is the white man's fault based on history.

Sorry, Rev. Al just got hold of my account for a moment. /sarc.
