Pshh..if I were UPS or any delivery company i would refuse to deliver to these hell holes. Let the people in those areas do without that stuff for awhile, maybe then this no snitching crap will stop. Poor guy is out earning an honest living and these POS try and rob then shoot him?? You people on the south side dont deserve to even have the basic amenities anymore, you and you alone have enabled, encouraged, and are fully to blame for the shape your area is in today.

The driver was probably white and over twenty-one. It's only a news story if black or hispanic CPS student get shot.

He has been making a huge progress in a very short time period. The way he is going, he should be 90% if not 100% recovered by the summer!!!

Step back and think what the democratic party has done for Chicago for the last 40 years?

IMO, nothing.

These dirtbag politicians have brainwashed the minorities in Chicago (if you want to now call them minorities at present?), into believing that you were going to get some special yank job from them.
You got nothing.

When you have a city, where no law abiding citizen can protect themselves on the streets, or in their homes, you will continue to live in fear of lawlessness. People like Rahm Emanuel isn't going to do a goddamn thing for Chicago either, so don't hold your breath, he's just another Obama puppet.

If Chicago would finally recognize a law abiding citizen's right, to own, and bear arms, many of these crimes would perhaps not even happen.

Yes, the UPS Driver in this instance would probably never be able to carry a gun, due to company policies, but a law abiding bystander-witness may have been able to take action, and stand up for those who are helpless.

The fact that people can be "legally armed" is a extremely strong deterrent to crime.

People will get, and give respect at the end of a gun.

Make it like here in NM, your business, your vehicle is also an extension of your home.
Arm every business in the state of Illinois, and step back and watch how crime would drop overnight.

About damn time people quit remaining divided, pointing fingers, and unite together on issues such as these.

Let it be, that you try to rob a person who's just trying to put some gas in their vehicle, they may be shot. That you walk into someone's home to rob them, you might be shot. To road rage somebody with your vehicle, whish is also a deadly weapon, you might be shot. That's how you give, and get respect. This is how it must be.

That all citizens in the city of Chicago, and the State of Illinois, regardless of race, creed, sex, or area should not have their 2nd amendment rights trodden upon.

If politicians in Illinois could ever wake up, you might then see some positive changes. Otherwise, a city like Chicago will continue it's downward spiral, being no better than the lawless craphole of Juarez, Mexico.

I was there in 1968. I remember that fat clown Daley issuing "shoot to kill", the National Guardsmen driving down the street to Madison Ave, which was ablaze, and could be seen from my neighborhood.

I remember being let out of school early that day (8th grade) cause the Black Panthers, and Blackstone Rangers were on the warpath, and were just a literal few blocks from our neighborhood, which is now the Tri Taylor Area.

Mayor Daley stopped the sales of guns, and ammunition in chicago, cause he feared that would get into the black man's hands.

And of course, at that time, he was probably right, that guns would perhaps be used for the wrong reasons, that the black man at that time wanted nothing more that to strike back at society.

And kill-maim innocent people, shoot-kill firefighters, who were trying their earnest to not see Chicago turn into another great fire of 1871.

The black man was sick, and angered back then, but had little sense, and no direction.

Most of that property on Madison Ave was of course not owned by blacks, it was owned by Jew Slum Landlords. They couldn't care less, as it wasn't their property they firebombed.

But today is different. I of course wouldn;t wish to walk the streets of the south side of Chicago, with two loaded M-16's, and a bagful of 30 shot clips, as entire neighborhoods would be looking to kill be, the lonely "Paul Kersey" assasin.

Therfore, I wish to see every law abiding black family armed to the gills in this current day and age. That for every gun the white family has, the black family should have two.

It won't be survival of the fittest, but it will be survival of the good. To unlease a fury that has never been seen in chicago's history.

To freaking drop and kill the dregs, who served no purpose in this society, but to rob, rape, pillage, and destroy fellow man.

Oh, you'd read about lots of killings, but of the good kind. That the good man is taking back the streets, the neighborhoods, the peace that man deserves.

I say turn Chicago into Tombstone AZ. Arm up Chicago citizens. Let them be able to protect themselves in the best ways possible.

And don't be stupid you black folks. You are "American"! Don't vote again for a dickhead who bows to foreign muslim towelheads. He supposed to be bowing to us, us Americans!

god is not good. If he was he would prevented this man from getting shot. But the religious nuts can't explain why good people get hurt and the lord does nothing. He is satan.
