Chicago's Strict Gun Control Laws in Action
CHICAGO (STMW)– Six people have been killed and at least 22 wounded in violence across Chicago since Friday evening.
The most recent fatal shooting happened early Sunday in the Goose Island area on the city’s Near North Side.
Charles Jones, 42, the manager of a Far South Side gentleman’s club, was shot to death in a confrontation with another motorist, whose 2005 Buick LaCrosse sideswiped Jones’ Maserati, police said.
Jones was shot about 2:50 a.m. in the 1000 block of North Branch Street and a 42-year-old woman in his car was wounded, police sad. Authorities said Jones lived in the 1100 block of North Dearborn in Chicago and also had a home in the 2900 block of Indian Creek Drive in Miami, Fla.
When Jones pulled over to talk to the driver of the Buick, the driver and a passenger the car, walked to another vehicle and then came back. One of them had a gun and shot Jones, police said. Jones was declared dead at 3:33 a.m. at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office. The woman with Jones was shot in the back or hip and taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, police said.Area Central detectives and the police Major Accident Investigation Unit were investigating, but nobody was in custody.
About 2:10 a.m. Sunday, Malcolm Dobbey, 27, was shot to death in the West Pullman neighborhood on the Far South Side. Police officers had responded to a call of a disturbance in the 12100 block of South Indiana and, while dealing with the disturbance, found a man unresponsive in a backyard. Dobbey, 27, was pronounced dead at 3:20 a.m. at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, according to the medical examiner’s office. Area South detectives were questioning a “person of interest” in the fatal shooting, but no one had not been charged as of Sunday evening.
Two other men were shot to death in separate shootings Saturday on the South Side.
Ferro Denard, 18, was shot in the head during a possible drive-by in the 7300 block of South Dorchester about 9:20 p.m. Saturday, authorities said. Denard, who lived on the block, was dead on the scene.
About 1:50 a.m. Saturday, Gregory Dixon, 29, was shot to death about half a mile from President Barack Obama’s Kenwood neighborhood home. Dixon buzzed the gunmen into an apartment building in the 1400 block of East 52nd Street, authorities said. The attackers then entered a unit through a door left ajar and shot Dixon in the chest and back. Dixon was dead on the scene, authorities said.
Two men were shot to death Friday night in separate shootings on the West Side.
About 11:45 p.m. Friday, Tevin Kirkman, 22, was found shot outside his home in the 1100 block of North Lawndale, authorities said. He was pronounced dead at 12:20 a.m. at Mount Sinai Hospital.
About 11 p.m. Friday, Leetema Daniels, 17, was shot in the head and died at the scene in the 400 block of North Central in the Austin neighborhood. An 18-year-old man was shot in the chest in that incident and was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital.
At least 21 others have been wounded in violence throughout the city since Friday night.

The Democrats have no intention of enforcing any new gun-control law in their districts. Those laws are solely for other-than-Democrats.
After all, every burglar shot and rapist killed and mugger blown away is one less vote for Obama.

<quoted text> You have no idea what you're talking about. There was nothing structurally wrong with the New Orleans levees---they were built to specs to resist storms up to a Category 3 hurricane. The scientific data was ignored that climate scientist's were making predictions that more extreme storms would form closer to coastal regions as climate worsened from man-made greenhouse gasses pollution--no one expected a Category 5 Katrina superstorm!
If the levees were only designed for a category 3 hurricane, shouldn't someone in the liberal government of Louisiana have entertained the idea there could be a category 5 hurricane?

And planned accordingly? They wanted to build more casinos instead apparently.

The most poignant image from Hurricane Katrina was the rows of submerged busses which should have been used to evacuate residents.
When confronted by President Bush and Mayor Nagin on September 2, Governor Blanco refused the help. She even blocked the Red Cross from entering New Orleans. Additionally, her administration was slow to remove bodies leaving them for animals to feed on. The governor's incompetence was glaring when compared to Alabama's Bob Riley and Mississippi's Haley Barbour who both expertly managed the crisis.
Until Blanco requested help, Bush could do nothing without declaring Louisiana in a state of insurrection.
The president questioned the constitutionality of such a declaration but later wrote that declaring insurrection would "unleash holy hell" by his critics.
More responsible elected officials and bureaucrats would have ensured the levee system‘s viability. They would have also moved quicker to evacuate people. Had Louisiana’s elected officials behaved in a more responsible way, many more people would be alive today. The federal response was not good, but decades of corruption combined with the state and local response significantly worsened the disaster.

You know all about being a liar. Caught several times here boldly lying.

Dupont is slow, poor guy, he thinks if he keeps playing "I am stupid" he can avoid admitting he was wrong and in his twisted mind somehow 'win'.

Now you -frontporch-has a reality problem. How many times do we have to tell you that you are last one in the world anyone would take advice from or should.

<quoted text> However, the Republicans controlled the Senate all through Reagan's 2 terms--every one who knows anything about how our government functions also knows that the Senate leads and the House follows. Was the sequestration a new idea. No, republicans pushed it through in 1985 . "So they passed the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings Balanced Budget Act, which did just that, as U.S. News explained at the time:
"Under the law, enacted in the final days of the 1985 session, Congress and the President must agree on a budget that meets annual deficit-reduction targets, or spending will be cut automatically under a complex system called "sequestration." Sound familiar?
Then, as now, the cuts were evenly divided among defense and nondefense programs. Then, as now, onlookers warned the cuts would leave food and drugs uninspected, airport runways unwatched, and soldiers unequipped.
[READ: 10 Industries That Will Be Hurt Most by the Sequester]
"All of us, and that includes the President and his advisers, will have to give a little if we are to avoid the wreckage," said Pete Domenici, the Senate's budget chairman at the time, sounding very much like current House Speaker John Boehner.
So what happened? It didn't work. The Supreme Court declared the automatic cuts unconstitutional, and when a revised version of the bill passed in 1987, Congress mostly evaded the cuts, and the deficit continued to grow. " Check this out: http://www.usnews.com/news/blogs/press-past/2... Thus, Reaganomics was a failure in the 1980's and un-Constitutional and the plan to revive it by Paul Ryan and John Boehner has also been proved to be a failure --so why do republicans stick to failed , impoverished ideas? They must really hate American across the board prosperity equally shared by all.

How's the meltdown going, nitwit?

I feel sorry for blacks. Since Obama took office, their unemployment numbers have increased substantially.

The Obama loving Cop killer was black.
