It says there are many theories, but none of them say, its those black thugs, they do dat.

In chicago there was a time when it was those white bootleggers. Then we legalized alcohol and some of that dried up. I wonder if there is a lesson in that.

“i hope we can change this!”

The chitown gangs need some obama stash stimulus so they can build more cohesive, disciplined units (like the black pampers) instead of these 'splintered' and 'fractured' gangs. obama admin reaction 'no problem we have an outreach program for that called fast-n-furious. Go chicage, faster these gangs kill each other off, quicker things might get sane for your city.

Drive by shootings or just ordinary shootings OFTEN kill innocent people.

I'm wondering why don't they teach fire arm use and safety, along with Driver's Education Classes?? At least they will hit their target, instead of innocents.

So warm weather and high unemployment makes kids in Chicago go on a homocidal rampage?

Isn't there some way to stand back and let them all kill each other? Then they'd be gone, and the cops wouldn't have to risk their lives or waste bullets.

"Thugs" and "welfare class" and "great society" being whitey Rightie slang for "nee-groes" or worse.

Scratch a Rightie (they spend enough time scratching themselves!) and you'll get a racist more often than not...:)
