well when obama comes home to roost maybe then he will do something about the violence. but until he gets there and he personally feels threatened...you are on your own...buy a gun and learn to use it properly.

You cannot tell me that if the City Government wanted to stop the violence they couldn’t. They don’t care because it is not in their neighborhood. Why should they care? Oh Wait because it is the right thing to do!

as long as they stay in the ghetto and kill each other,nothing will be done...its sad to say. but the thugs need to get out and kill a politician's kids or family..and then something would get done.because we all know the common people (who put them in office) dont matter. until someone "news worty" gets killed, nothing will be done.SAD BUT TRUE

It is true there have always been school shootings but no one cared till it hit middle class suburbia. It should not be this way a child is a child. But I am glade it is not in my community. And I want to make sure it does not happen. It needs to be stopped in it tracks now.

i love the way you write and you could actually help the situation if enough people read topix. have you ever thought of ways to broaden your type of audience? journalism maybe?
you sound as completely fed up with the chicago situation as i am. there truly is no justice for victims there. why their mayor isn't tackling this senseless problem is beyond me.
just curious, are you black or white?
yes I am a former citizen of Chicago born and raised there. Fled the city in the mid 60's remember da city when it was a civilized safe place to live.

Now living under an assumed name in a distant city.
