    The shooter must have missed his invitation to the basketball game for "troubled youth" – – These people aren't worth the publicity that they get – But, I have to admit – I look for these articles – Just to further my opinions….

      Marie – It's sad that it's happening at all – to any race – and both races have their faults -but, if the black leaders would just stand up to the gang violence and not defend and blame others and society for what happens – Wouldn't that make more sense?? There are a lot of awful white people – many white peope are mass murderers – But, com'n – MOST of the killings in Chicago is black on black crime – and the black leaders should address it and correct it…How would Chicago be if all the gangbanging killers were locked up? Much better -right?
