So why are illegal aliens coming to the US, if they want to escape violence? Meanwhile, who is going to help the good people of Chicago ‘immigrate’ to a safer place? Don’t they deserve a chance at a better life as much as illegal aliens do?

Saturday evening, police responding to a call of shots fired near 87th and Morgan streets chased a 16-year-old boy into an alley near 87th and Sangamon. They found him hiding under a car. Police said, as he was getting out from under the vehicle, officers told him several times to drop his gun, but he refused, and officers shot him to defend themselves. The boy, Warren Robinson, was just three days shy of his 17th birthday…

In the other fatal police-involved shooting, around 10 p.m. Friday in Portage Park, police received a call of a person with a gun near Berenice and Cicero avenues. Fraternal Order of Police spokesman Pat Camden said officers saw something under the young man’s arm and tried to stop him when he pointed a large revolver at the officers.

“The officer defends himself, fires a shot. The offender his hit, manages to run down the alley a short distance before the officer’s partner is able to kind of head him of,” said Camden. The 14-year-old boy, Pedro Rios, died from the shooting…

Note the ages of most of these victims. These are the ages of a lot of the innocent ‘children’ who are now flooding across our southern non-border.

    2 shaquilles in one day? I wonder what the bag limit is on those. oops, sorry. I may be a little jaded regarding gangs banging on each other.

    don’t worry, though. there’s no chance any of those 60 THOUSAND “children” crossing the border are bangers. I mean seriously, how dangerous can they be? they were only able to make (supposedly unaccompanied) a journey from the yucatan peninsula through poverty stricken, drug lord and warlord infested jungles in el salvador, guatamala, and honduras. not to mention the mexican desert. unaccompanied. right. just some impoverished, malnourished, 13 yr old child. no money, no food, no means of transport, no assistance. a journey like that would be a challenge for a commando. ( maybe sign them up for a tour of duty in the Marines, and let them earn their citizenship?)

    sorry, o’bummer. I find your lack of credibility disturbing.
    The farce is strong with this one.

    Chicago has always been a nation of 3rd world immigrants. Jeb Bush should be appointed to aid his beloved risk takers.

    Drudge Report says deaths are up to 14 now, and over 80 wounded.
    Retroactive birth control, and the temperatures are rising…
