Why hasn't the graphic photo of the shot up windshield on this unmarked police car appeared on this website? Is the media downplaying? Does anyone see any similarity between our out of control violence in Chicago and the out of control violence in Philadelphia, coincidentally from where our current Police Superintendent, Jodi Weiss hails? Is it just that Jodi Weiss is used to this level of violence, and that is the reason he is doing nothing to stop the violence from escalating, to the point that now, predicatably, it is being unleashed against our Chicago Police Officers?? In Philadelphia, Officers are being shot dead in cold blood. Is that what we are in for under this weak, inexperienced, naiive new leadership named Jodi Weiss, hand picked by Mayor Daley?

YA>.. where is the photograph of the windshield. There were more than enough pictures of a dead mountain lion days ago, making all the animal lovers riled up and mad at the police for shooting a wild lion. Now when officers get shot at its just another typical occurance and the police should just deal with it right?? Maybe they should of asked the ak 47 wielding criminal more nicely to surrender... Hope.. but doubt this criminal will spend more than 5 yrs behind jail, and be out on the street ready to kill somebody else.

Does the right to bear arms give the citizens the right to carry a missile launcher in a truck bed? The availability of weapons like the AK 47 assault rifle is outrageous.Cut the bull shit about hunters and gun lovers. Stop killing animals and find somthing else to love besides instruments of death. Create some police hit squads that will make life for gang bangers hell on earth. This is war against terror in its purest form. Some innocents will die at first but innocents are dying right now anyhow!

People with legally registered guns arent out there committing the crimes. The gangbangers arent getting them from gunshops, they're commonly smuggled from other countries. Its easier for a criminal to get a gun than it is for me to do it legally. I own numerous guns and i commit myself to safety and promoting safe shooting. Gangbanger assholes that think committing crimes is cool really spoil it for the millions of law abiding gun owners in this country.

an ak 47 functions the same way a regular hunting rifle does, its actually less powerful than a hunting rifle. Its not designed to kill a 1000 pound animal. If you watch this video you will see what i am saying is true. Since you take the time to hate on the ak47 take the time to watch this video, you may learn something.
