TINLEY PARK, Ill. --Protestors and hecklers turned out for a speech given by Chicago priest Father Michael Pfleger.

St Sabina’s leader was in Tinley Park Thursday to talk about escalating violence. But members of the NRA say he's trampling on the right to bear arms.

    Did he really think that his speech was going to be well received by this audience? Not sure if he meant to stir up something in Tinley, or if he was just that blind. BTW, I really don’t care what he does in his own parish. But, really, what was the point of this? To enlighten the white people in the suburbs about the plight of the inner city people? Doesn’t he know that they are aware of what happens in the city–that is why they are living in the suburbs!

    The False Piest, Father Michael Pfleger, got his hind end handed to him by the members of the audience that had rebuttal statements for his non sense.
