500th

Obama Jesus Pose

CHICAGO – Gave Bates smiled through tears as she swiped her hand across her phone, flipping through pictures of her cousin playing around and striking goofy poses.

“He was a lot of fun, very good at imitating people,” Bates said of Nathaniel T. Jackson, 40. “He just had so much fun all the time. And we all grew up together in the same house.”

Jackson was standing outside a store in the Austin neighborhood around 9 p.m. Thursday when someone walked up and shot him in the head, police said.   His death was apparently the 500th homicide in Chicago this year, marking a grim milestone. The city last reached that toll in 2008.

Jackson grew up on the West Side, a few miles away from where he was gunned down, and had been released from prison this past summer after serving a sentence for robbery. He had been shot several years ago, after an earlier stint in jail, and Bates said she constantly warned him to be careful on the street.

“The last time he was out, someone had shot him several times, in the back,”  Bates said as she stood outside Stroger Hospital, where Jackson was pronounced dead. “He was a fighter, he was a survivor.”  (read more)

    There is no clearer example of what happens when you let scum & crooks run your city, state & country, imagine what will happen to your neighborhood if they continue.

    No, this can’t be right. Chicago has strict gun-control laws.

    For those of you who aren’t familiar with Chicago, the Austin neighborhood isn’t the worst one in Chicago but it’s quite bad. Nearly all black. Low-income. Gang-infested.

    I want to see the breakdown of homicides. How many were gang-related? I’ll bet 90%. Gun laws directed at average citizens will have ZERO effect.

    If this murder rate is any indication, AA collectively have bigger fish to fry than the GZ case. If Obama’s son keep killing each other at this rate, he isn’t going to have any left.

    “We need a plan… we need urban reconstruction… we need jobs…” No Sh!t, genius, but all you offer is platitudes and hustle. Everything is connected, and it’s not all based on race. Or money in the the pockets of your 2000-dollar suits.

    This guy is a walking, talking, testament to the power of stupidity over common sense.

    How many of the 500 were shot with legally purchased guns? I know that when I was loaned to ATF for a period all gun shops reported the specifics of handgun sales and we reviewed them for certain clues. One hell of a lot were ‘straw purchases’ where some 105-pound 5-foot-zero young lady bought a Desert Eagle in .50 AE. An agent or police officer would be dispatched to the listed address and the purchaser questioned. Most often the gun was not at the house and the purchaser had bought it for a boyfriend, frequently one with a criminal record. There are also cities in some southern states from which blacks migrated to large cities such as CHICAGO. Relatives or acquaintances in these cities buy firearms and ship them to the big cities up north for sale/use. Guns retrieved in these big cities are frequently traced back to these southern cities and prosecutions for doing so ain’t as active as they should be. Were there more prosecutions with stiffer sentencing the number of illegal gun transfers would go down but as so many of these illegal transfers involve members of Federally Protected Groups I don’t see it happening any time soon.
