New York Shooting

Checking out the national news tonight, everybody led with the shooting outside the Empire State Building where a disgruntled (and fired) white guy shot and killed a co-worker before being killed himself. Nine bystanders were wounded by stray bullets, some probably from the police.

No one seemed to cover Chicago where 19 people of color were wounded by bullets in under 12 hours and the totals for the week look like something out of a Wes Craven horror flick.

You know what that means, right?

Racism!

Well ya gotta admit Ms Obama did run up to those temple shootings in Wisconsin to " be with the families" while the media's byline told the story of a white supremest hater doing the evil deed.

In her own hood we have over 350 homicides for the year as of tonight.

There's no visit with ANY of the families here. Granted many of them are gang bangers however there's a lot of innocent bystanders lumped in there too. Too busy counting her husbands "campaign contribution" money I'll bet. Just like Rahm. Gotta get ready for that big meeting and get some more money. F--k Chicago and it's people baby dead, dead, dead so what. We gots to get our hands on moar of that corporate money is all that matters.

Back in NY, the AP is now reporting THAT ALL the bystanders that were shot were shot by the NYPD. Sad day for you Mr Bloomberg. 16 rounds were said to be fired by the NYPD and we know where at least 8 of them landed right? How many hit the target?

Maybe Chicago should chip-in and pick up some of those Tactical Weapons Training Groupon Coupons that include range time and send them east...I'm just sayin' before the media says it that's all.

Carry on gentlemen. I don't think any of it matters anymore.

Doesn't matter who wins the presidency. Doesn't matter who's the mayor. Doesn't matter how many people get shot tonight on the streets.

Doesn't even matter if the White Sox win the pennant, the Cubs get a new park, the Hawks avoid a strike, or who the Bulls get in the draft.

Doesn't matter if a hundred more companies move to Chicago like the ones Rahm boast about, the Motorola's, the United Airlines, or the Governor's Sears accomplishments.

None of it matters. It won't make most of our lives any better. No community college courses or alleged skill shortages will change what needs to be changed. Just the same sh-t different day of clouted scams.

When the mayor talks about "values" he means "the money" and nothing else in my opinion. It's all about the money (values).

The shooting of nineteen was reported in the London Daily Mail in online. Great photo coverage. Should help tourism from England.

When are we going to get a spokes person for whites and Hispanics? Anytime a black person is mistreated there goes sharpton and Jackson. They can do it and be called religious leaders but any other race would be called racist.

This shooting and the Peterson trial are getting all the hype to divert attention away from the mayhem in Ozrero's home town, the one here in Chicago, not Kenya.

The Trib has a story about a 15 yr. old girl, who was accidently shot by a same age relative who was high while packaging drugs. The family fled with the drugs and surrendered the boy later.

My question is: Who am I supposed to give a shit about?

The difference is, that people outside of NYC have actually heard it. Most of the world hears Chicago mentioned on the news and they think Al Capone.

Not much has changed in this burg. in 80 years.

Didn't see anyone trying to link the NYC shooter to the Tea Party maybe because he was a women's accessory designer. That is probably White, gay, and dumocrat. As Rush Limbaugh said yesterday (tongue in cheek), it was obummer's fault for advocating class hatred.

We don't even have those totals yet -- it's only Saturday afternoon!

Just wait. No fair cutting off the count at midnight Sunday, either -- roll it untl noon Monday, when the last wild-ass, IQ 49, intoxicated, armed mutt has concluded its ridiculous "bidness" and driven home on the rims, throwing sparks, one headlight dangling.

That agonizing acceleration up to 13 MPH. "Blubblubblubblubblub!"

Oops! "WRONG WAY! WRONG WAY! WRONG WAY!"

Etc.

Two disparate groups.

Q. When will European whites be able to go down to the corner and get a free copy of a newspaper called "THE RACE," the way Hispanics currently can?

What makes you think Sharpton and Jackson are spokesmen for Black people? Is Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh a spokesman for White People? Go to bed, idiot.

The Chicago Values Safari continues...

As decent citizens cower in the face of an overwhelming horde of savages who have marauded into previously safe areas in the shopping districts, the New York wonder boy sobers up enough to issue another idiotic edict.
Knowing that crime frightens the decent people and their money away, McWhiskey fakes more statistics in a lame attempt to distract. But the instinct for survival is too great, and the thinking people prove again why they have survived so long by staying away from the Wildlife Sanctuary City and spend their money elsewhere.
Meanwhile, packs of savages begin to prey upon each other when the usual pick of yuppie prey begins to thin.

Apparently all of the wounded were from cop bullets. I see nothing has changed in that city. At least CPD (usually) shoots straight.

I left Chicago for Wisconsin Friday morning at 8 am. About 10am my buddy, who lives in northern Wisconsin calls me asking about the 8 shot and the total of 19 shot Thursday night. He told me it's all over the news up there. Before I left, I watched channel 9, 5, fox and cltv and each channel ran a quick mention of all the violence after CPS strike report, after cardinal George cancer, after st Louis homicide, and a hurrican that hasn't even hit US shores yet. When I got to my uncles (in Wisconsin), he asked about all the shootings. He read about "Terror Town" on-line from a newspaper's front page news out of Ireland!!! Chicago violence has been the topic of european news for well over 4 months. But here, it's just a blip. Keep paying taxs. Keep sending your childern to CPS so they can become victims of violence, sexual assaults and no hope for the future. Keep turning a blind eye to all the perks of being an illegal in sanctuary city. To all you narrow mind liberal democrats, look what your social experiment has become.

When is the black community in this city going to wake up and realize 3 things....

1. They are not the Minority in this city anymore, and their behaviour has turned their "leaders" into racists.

2. It's their own that are killing their kids.

3. The "No Snitchin' Policy" works sooo well.

"Tweeted" my sister-in-law, we're in the clear. Disingenuous bullshit. Amply described here how Chicago media was frantically broadcasting anything but.

NOW it's on the front page of the Sun-Times.

First ignore. When that fails, pander.

"Twitter stream." S__t.

In re -- New York shootings --

It is certainly no innocent person's fault that they found themselves suddenly in the middle of a terrifying gun battle between a murderer and the police.

That said, the ONE thing that EVERYONE could very easily do is --

DON'T STAND THERE TAKING SMARTPHONE VIDEOS.

If possible -- some people were just stuck on a bus, in a car with this blowing up right next to them -- if you can, seek cover, throw yourself down, get away.

...but whatever you do, DON'T STAND THERE TAKING SMARTPHONE VIDEOS.

Best wishes and prayers to all who were touched by this.

McWhiskey went over there to walk through the crime scene and pick up the shell casings in the threads of his shoes.

We could use him on our ranges so we don't have to pick up brass any more.

appears like the guy wanted to get shot by responding cops as he never took any shots at cops. all the bystanders that were hit were from police bullets.

Don't want to hurt "convention and restaurant business" here if you can help it. Keep it light, gallery openings and new restaurant previews, exercise machines and "environmentally responsible cosmetics."

Gotta keep the spin on -- when the citizens finally shame the media into covering it, it becomes "gun violence." WBBM radio now ran and interviewed some standard "violence as a public health problem" doctor. "People have to understand that there is not just some chemical spray that will make this go away."

Oh, I don't know about that.

Now that you mention it, Doc, I can think of several.

I was rather shocked to see those newspaper receptacles when moving to Chicago. My larger dog always used to lift his leg on them. They're blue, right? There could be a Trib and/or Redeye display right next to The Race but he would always lift his leg on the blue one. Sometimes he'd even lead me over to them.
