    Just another day at the office, right Rahm?
    Just tragedy after tragedy as Rahm goes to work, mean mugs for the cameras and then goes home.
    This is beyond sad, day after day children and adults alike are dying on the streets of Chicago.

    It was 2 weeks ago today that the biggest shooting took place on the 4th of July that did not get reported on TV. One of the many shootings that weekend was stopped by a Chicago man with a concealed carry permit. He saved himself and the others with him from an active shooter. He returned fire at Denzel Mickel, sending him to the hospital and to prison. Why does the local news media refuse to air this story? We know why.

    I have said it before, & I will continue to say it: I don’t believe for a second that there are people who DON’T know who the shooters are. Until the people who live in these areas turn them in, this will continue to happen, & no amount of police can stop it. And as for the argument of “gang retaliation”-the people in these areas HAVE,,,,,NO…….CHOICE about what is the right thing to do! The cops can’t do anything UNLESS people come forward! It’s THEIR choice-not the city’s-not the cops-NOT Emanuel’s-THEIR CHOICE! AS long as these people who live in the areas DON’T turn in these shooters-NOTHING……..WILL………CHANGE!
