How Much Will This Cost?

This is just great:
  • Two teens playing with a 9 mm handgun inside a Chicago classroom both ended up shot in the leg after a bullet discharged as they were passing the gun between them, police said.
  • There was conflicting information about whether all students at the school are required to pass through the building's metal detectors.
  • Lopez said students are chosen at random to go through the detectors because it would take too long to scan each teen.
  • But Michael Vaughn, a spokesman for Chicago Public Schools, said all students are required to go through metal detectors every day.
Personal Injury Attorneys LIVE for cases like these. Especially if policy was avoided or disregarded. These cases are regarded as "slam dunks." While Channel 2, Channel 7 and the Sun Times merely report what happened, Channel 5 cuts to the heart of the matter:
  • The parents of one of the students who was shot Tuesday at Chicago Vocational Career academy said they wanted to know how the gun got into the school."I'm just mad. I want answers," said the victim's mother, Michelle Lewis. "They need to do something about this gun violence."
Don't worry momma, you'll be getting your answers in the form of a large check shortly, courtesy of the Chicago Public Schools, the Chicago taxpayers and the mayor.

When will the law pass. You can only sue the person that commited the crime, and not the location or city it occured in? AH Never.

Remove the metal dectectors. who's now liable? Is there a video?

The kid is not really a victim, if the gun didn't go off he would have not reported the gun to the schools admin. and or the victim they plotted to kill that afternoon. So really this kid should be booked as conspirator to murder.

it will be police fault for not having 100 officers there on a continous basis! Then the students will be searched and mom will say "Civil rights are being violated my son/daughter has no gun", then she will say the police put it on him/her. The circle of shit round and round until daley gives away our money as usual again, with the weak corp counsel full of clout that is like the lottery just give it all away!

Let's hope that are dear mayor does not get on the great gun ban kick again. Find out who the gun belongs to and lock his ass up in jail for awhile, along with the kids playing with the gun. Also the people who allow kids to skip the metal detectors.

it is the logical result of the last 45 yrs. of liberal insanity. take prayer and God out of school and replace that with metal detectors and condoms. you reap what you sow more than you sow and later than you sow. thanks aclu and civil trial lawyers.

Fellas, fellas, relax. Let's not jump to any conclusions on this one. I'm sure there will be a thourough investigation into this matter. Little Timmy and Jimmy (honor students, no doubt) are merely pawns in a greater conspiracy to keep the dark men and women of this city down. The truth will come out eventually. Until then, let's not speculate on the possibilty that the gun was planted by the feds, or that there are gang members frequenting the halls of our great Chicago public schools, or that mommy and daddy are gangbanging drug dealers themselves. Things will be back to normal soon enough so that these wonderful public school children can go back to thier daily routine of showing up to glorified daycare to harass young, idealistic, over-educated white suburbanite teachers, get thier freak on in the restrooms, deal thier crack from thier lockers, and brawl after school everyday like clockwork. Ahhhh, the wonderful Chicago public school system. Really takes your breath away, doesn't it?

How about you sue the parents of the other shit head. All the media attention is focused on the metal detectors. How about some focus on the shit head who brought the gun into school, and charge him with a felony and his parents with something; I’m sure that the gun belongs to his mommas boyfriend. Where is Jackson now, is he setting a protest to walk up and down the block where the shit head who brought the gun to school lives,, oh wait the offender is a m/1- I guess that’s not going to happen any time soon. Just another casualty of which society is responsible, and not the individual themselves.

Chicago Vocational "Career" academy, thats almost as funny as momma not knowing where the gun came from.

Why didn't the teenagers know how to safely handle a gun? Didn't the mother realize that she has a responsibility to teach her children how to live safely? If they were hit by a car for crossing a street without looking both ways would she be suing the DMV?

Of course, she probably would. This is Chicago, where responsibility and common sense have been replaced with socialist groupthink and dependence.

How did the gun get into the school? Well if that school is anything like Farragut high school in 010, heres how. Untold numbers of students walk through the metal detectors with the machine beeping like crazy, and the civilian security guards just waive them through totally unchallenged. They have an X-ray machine their that is comparable to the ones used at the airports. But as the bookbags go through it, the security guards are deeply engossed in conversation with each other and dont even look at the screen half the time. That machine sat in a corner last year unused for over 5 months because "nobody knew how to work it". One of the day Lt's kept bitching to Board of Ed security about it and finally they forced them to use it. If it's like that at Farragut, it's also happening at a lot of other schools.

Fuck you, you motherless fuck. Take up why SOS dosent show up with the cheif of patrol and any other spinless fuck that put the leash on everyone in SOS that isn't dirty never was dirty and actually got over their on hard work and merit. Yeah i know as far as the hard work and merit part its not a lot. Next time the shit hits the fan call TRUseless they are the new superstars of the department. Well i guess since SOS cant leave the "violence zone" and isnt allowed to do anything close to effective policing SOS is the useless entity. Oh yeah TRU only works evenings. "Note to whomever is in charge" start a morning watch for those no experence having, dog ass hacks, shut down SOS stop fucking with the guys that are left put an end to the damn unit. Or clean it up, put new hard working coppers with more than 20 months on the job and some idea how to do the job right (and legally) in thier and turn them loose.

When I was in high school we didn't have police, didn't have metal detectors, and didn't have gang bangers. City of Chicago public school, all white at the time, and parents who gave a shit. If you got caught doing anything in school, they were allowed to kick your ass out, and then your parents kicked your ass at home. Parents didn't blame the school, teachers, other students, they blamed the responsible party--their own child.
As soon as the minority of this city accept responsibility for their own actions, the sooner they will advance in the human race. QUIT blaming everyone and raise the expectations of your children. Wala, answer to the problem. The only thing keeping your race down is the blame game most of you tend to play. If you notice, Jesse Jackson's children had very high expectations. They were not allowed to become thugs. He doesn't care if the rest of you are thugs, that's how he makes his income, defending you. If you act responsible, he won't have to defend you and he will be out of a job. That is okay though, because he already set his family up. Beer distribors, politicians, etc. Your own keep you down! Wake up!

It really doesn't matter how many black faces were on the CPD "known pickpockets" hot sheet. Those are just the dumbasses that were CAUGHT REPEATEDLY. Trust me, there are lots of people out there who are NOT black who steal wallets. I recently arrested two older Polish ladies who happened to pickpocket a young Hispanic mother of two while I was in the store off duty. Both women denied any knowledge of where the victim's cash was, until a female officer arrived and found it concealed on one of the women. And no, they didn't make the list of "known pickpockets." But they were very good at their craft, and the fact that they were older and white certainly didn't hurt their "credibility" when committing this act in a heavily hispanic neighborhood. As always, it's what you DON'T see that should worry you.

Watching the news this afternoon, I noted that the kid with the gun apparently entered through the front door at about 10:00 in the morning, according to video over the door.
Questins about whether or not the doors were being watched, and if he needed to pass through a metal detector were mentioned.

My question: Why was he entering at 10:00? School starts well before 10:00.
Is he so gifted that he only needs a half-day of school...or is he a piece of shit, with parents who could care less?

He must be a prodigy...he probably built the gun as a project for his physics class

Don't blame TRU because the screws got put to you, blame Finnnegan and crew... I won't even try to engage you in the dog-ass hack shit, SOS has been THE phone call, sons of supervisors unit, for years and everyone knows it.. if you aren't happy go to TRU or come back to the district, but quit bitching, or at least direct it where it needs to be, your own people.

If you pay attention, there are four public schools on the northwest side that have the top scores in the city. One is the top school in the state four years in a row. Park Ridge can't touch that, thanks for not supporting the schools in your community.
