Three people, including a 3-year-old boy, are in critical condition Friday after an apparent gang-related shooting at a neighborhood basketball court in Chicago that left up to 13 people injured.
At least 10 ambulances were sent to the site in Chicago’s teejnBack of the Yards neighborhood after 10 p.m. Thursday, WGN-TV reports. No deaths were reported.
Police spokesman Ron Gaines said that victims were being interviewed to determine the circumstances of the shooting. As of Friday morning, no arrests have been reported.
A witness, Julian Harris, told the Chicago Sun-Times that dreadlocked men fired at him from a gray sedan before turning toward Cornell Square Park and firing at people. He said his 3-year-old nephew was wounded in the cheek.
“They hit the light pole next to me, but I ducked down and ran into the house,” Harris said. “They’ve been coming round here looking for people to shoot every night, just gang-banging stuff. It’s what they do.” read complete story here:
The Chicago Tribune quotes police as saying the boy suffered a gunshot wound to the head at an ear that exited through his mouth. Chicago Fire Department officials said he was in critical condition. The Tribune quotes family members as identifying the boy as Deonta’ — pronounced Deontay — who was nicknamed Tay Man.
For all the venom that flowed from of the lips of BARACK Hussein Obama about gun control he still will not or can not address the fact of WHY the city that has the STRICTEST gun control laws in the nation can not stop the daily and nightly carnage in his beloved Chicago. The latest of course being the wounding of 13 people, one of which was a 3-year-old child. Obama and all of his yes-men have no answer.
Shootings and murder are a daily occurrence on the streets of Chicago, but Obama wants to punish law-abiding gun owners for the ineptitude of Chicago officials, namely Rahm Emanuel, Chicago’s mayor and Obama’s former Chief of Staff. Remember what Obama has said many times in public “Reward your friends punish your enemies” source
Yet Obama and all of his henchman stand at the altar of freedom trying to sell us a bag of crap more regulation of gun laws are needed to prevent such tragedies. That my friends is utter stupidity. If you believe in that theory, I have a few thousand acres of ocean front property in Nevada that is for sale….CHEAP.
It is the same old song and dance, and if you do not know the name of the dance it is called the POTOMAC TWO-STEP. I am here to tell all of you fine citizens that most of us in Texas and the United States are not dancing to their music. What these moronic simpletons are trying to sell is called “Civilian Disarmament” and that “dog” don’t hunt here”. They are trying their best to rip up the constitution and use it to wipe their “Feet” or other bodily areas, you get my point.
I am so sick and tired of this illegitimate presidential impersonator trying ruin our nation. The problem is he is succeeding and we are allowing it. It is time my friends that we true Americans stand up and say enough. What about United States Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry….?? Killed at the hands of Barack Hussein Obama and his stooge the so-called one way street Attorney General Eric Holder, just look at who he refused to prosecute, New Black Panthers..Ok I know that is old and stale news, but it happened and nothing was done about it. Why is it? Holder is was peeing in his panties to prosecute George Zimmerman even after he was found innocent by a lawfully impaneled jury. That is the Obama way.
Here is more old and stale news. Who are the ones responsible for gun running into Mexico? Look no further than 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and If you dig deep enough you will find that they very well may be are in bed with the Sinaloa Cartel. This is nothing new, it is common knowledge in Mexico and in my OPINION, they are correct. Can I prove this allegation, no I can not, but remember this little adage, where there is smoke there is a fire, a big blazing fire and no one seems to care. The problem is congress can not see the forest because of the trees. Just do your homework?
Neighbors, let me say this as I wind down my rant for today. All of what I have said today, about Obama’s quest to strip the our inherent right to bear arms because Obama wants you to believe that by removing weapons from us we would be safer, that is a load of crap, you know that. If Obama believed it he would not be contemplating signing the United Nations Gun Control Act in spite of despite bipartisan resistance in Congress from members concerned it could lead to new gun control measures in the U.S.
I have not heard of nor do I know for a fact that Obama has already signed the U.N. Gun Control Act. I do not believe that he has. However if Obama were a true red-blooded American, which I believe he is not, he would not even entertain the thought of signing such a document.
The time has arrived that we re-claim our nation. mid-term elections are just around the corner, we as a nation need to rid the senate of all of the libtards progressive democrats that stand for taking your hard-earned money and giving it to those who are capable of work, but choose not to. It is, and has time that we secure our borders and remove the illegal aliens that have the medical needs, schooling, food and other needs paid by the hard-working Americans that pay their way. I am all for people coming our nation, but I am in favor of doing it legally. I am 100% of granting citizenship to the men and women who are in the armed forces and fought for our country, that is what freedom stands for.
We must stand up, now and demand answers for all of the questions on the scandals that Obama has failed to answer concerning Benghazi, IRS, NSA and all of the rest I have not listed.
God Bless You and May God Bless America
