  • Navy makes something positive out of Chicago violence

    Chicago Brown: Navy makes something positive out of Chicago violence Mark Brown This is a good news story, but underlying it is a bleak reality. The volume of gunshot wounds and other trauma cases treated at Stroger Hospital is so high that the U.S. Navy has teamed up the past two years with the hospital’s prestigious trauma unit to keep its medical personnel better prepared for their next deployment. The Navy guys might see as much action in a typical night at Stroger as they would if they were in a combat setting. Let that sink in for a minute....

    Four boys in Chicago were wounded as they walked down the street, and a total of 17 people were shot in the city on Monday. The shootings of the youngsters happened at approximately 9 p.m. when an unknown male approached and opened fire on the city's West Side. The boys — aged 12, 14, 15 and 16 — were all in stable condition at local hospitals on Monday night. No arrests have been made, but an investigation is ongoing, an official with the Chicago Police Department told the Daily News on Tuesday.

According to The Tennessean, Gresham's bill allows "any Tennessean with a valid gun permit to sue a property owner in the event of injury or death provided the incident occurred while in a gun-free zone." Senate Bill 1736 helps business owners understand that by banning...

Judging by the most recent developments, Obama will have nothing to say about Chicago gun violence either during tonight's state of the union address, or ever for that matter, because recent developments are downright disastrous. According to the...

The woman, who recounted the incident to news media Tuesday, said she had a funny feeling once a dark-colored car started following her car as she pulled away from the Mobil on the Run and headed home to 640 South Porter St., a three-story, garden-style apartment building. She had just gotten off work as a poker dealer. It was about 11:30 p.m. As she made...

    While the video release of a Chicago police officer's shooting of Laquan McDonald prompted a domino effect of change, including the ousting of the police superintendent and a federal civil rights investigation, the department finished 2015 on an ironic note: Officers shot the fewest people that they have in years. Chicago police officers shot 22 people in 2015, eight of them fatally. That's a 40 percent drop in the total number of people shot compared with 2014, when 37 people were hit by police gunfire and 16 of them were killed, according to department figures.

A hostage situation was fortunately resolved, but as a result one person was hospitalized. Should we be at all surprised? The tough lessons for all the media (written and television) are that endless reporting on events involving horrific violence, i.e. terrorists, only encourages copycats by psychotic individuals who are already "on the edge."

Obviously, this was a concerning statistic--if it were actually true.It turns out it wasn't, and even figures on the left agree.

It's a nice, well-made crib, made from real wood and bought from a reliable company. We could easily resell it for a handsome price, but we found out a few weeks ago that we can't. It's a drop side crib, and unbeknownst to us the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) banned the manufacture, sale, and resale of drop-sides in 2010, even though individuals can unadvisedly still use them.

The high court under Chief Justice John Roberts has in recent terms agreed to rule on cases related to how states handle death penalty prosecutions and conduct executions, but has yet to weigh in on whether the practice violates the Eighth Amendment’s prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment.  Some court watchers say that will soon change, pointing to signals suggesting an appetite among some of the justices to...

He queried his victims before he shot them; the Christians were shot in the head while non-Christians were shot in the legs. That aspect was curiously absent from Obama's remarks after the shooting. Had the victims been shot because they were anything but Christian, Obama would have denounced the hate-crime aspect of the murders. But it is not Obama's screed that I want to address at this time, loathsome as it was. As...
