    Chicao and only Chicago created the situation they are in . They are a social liberal,graff ridden city with politcal corruption that is the everyday norm. It is typical of jackson and people like him to want someone else to help straighten out the mess they allowed to go unchecked all these years. One can make all the excuses they want, but the simple fact remains, Chicago is their own worst enemy.

    They put one of yours in the hospital, you put one of theirs in the morgue. That is the Chicago way.

    First it is "military style" weapons...Then it is back ground checks...next, it is the "National Guard"

    Slippery slope of tyranny.

    Well said, marine1!
    Chicago is, and always has been, the most corrupt city in America. This corruption existed long before black politicians gained a foothold in Chicago politics.
    The murder rate in Chicago has been sky high for decades, and Jesse's voice was silent on the issue. Did he ever take his own son to task over this issur when he (his son) was in office? This is nothing more than an attempt by Jesse to get his name in print and his face on television. Jesse Jackson is a worthless self-promoter.

    @DapperDave In addition to being the poster child for gun control failure, Chicago is also one of the biggest liberal failures in this country. It's always more money,more money,more money and nothing they do adequately supports their investments or a R O I there-in so it's back to the tax payer.

    1.) This is nothing more than grandstanding by Jesse Jackson for publicity to get himself some attention. 2.) Gangs don't give a damn who is president or where they are from. 3.) If Jesse Jackson actually cares more than personal publicity why doesn't he get the NAACP to join his group Push./Operation Ranibow along with La Raza and various other black and Latino leaders (including Al Sharpton) to descend on Chicago and demand that the minorities turn their back on the gang/rap culture and say to America that this is no who you are and you will no longer tolerate the destruction of black and brown America by these thugs. 4.) I'll be watching pig fly before that happens.

    But that would require of the African American community the one thing it can't do...accept responsibility for it's own condition. They'd rather see their own child's killer walk free than assist police in bringing them to justice. Unless of course the killer was white which would be cause for protests in cities across the nation. This happened when Trayvon Martin was murdered, there we're threats of riots and vigilante killings because "this type of madness and killing must end". But the fact that on the same day,statistically speaking, 12 more young black men were murdered at the hands of other young black men was never mentioned. Also not mentioned but even more compelling is that every day of that year both before and after the Martin killing, another 12 black men were murdered by other black men.

    Remember the Decatur 7? Seven h.s. kids that went crazy beating down a bunch of h.s.kkids at a football game. Jackson went to that town and tried to racially divide it. Didn't work. He said all those aggressors were good kids yada yada yada. Turns out, 5 yrs later, 6 were in jail and 1 couldn't find him.
    Whole point of this story: Jackson will never believe its a cultural problem, just a racial problem.

    @rkinsawjoe There are those black people who get an education and immediately move out of black neighborhoods. They are name called by blacks and considered traitors. But the truth is that nothing can or will be done for the majority black community by non blacks because blacks scream racism if a non black tries to involve themselves. Asian immigrants work liker dogs, require their kids to make straight A's. The Latino community doesn't value education but will work. The black community at large today values neither. It's simply no solvable until such time as they themselves decide to stop the rap/gang culture.

    @mtkopf It's not financially profitable to see it as a cultural problem. Jackson makes money off of screaming racism. It's what he does.

    I'm sure some money trails lead to gangs, some lead to government and they frequently cross paths.

    It's corruption from the top all the way to the morgue...Chicago's politicians are so corrupt, they hope the gangs will kill each other off so they won't have to deal with
    them, much like any city where everyone is on the 'take'. The biggest criminals in
    Chicago are in office, it goes all the way back to the Daly days and beyond. It's what
    happens when the 'inmates are running the asylum'! So sorry for that innocent child.

    Now do you people actually think that these hardcore gangs care what the president says? Liberals will believe anything.

    When I went to Chicago all of the people there was the nicest I ever met in America. Nor was it a dump. You seem to think all of Chicago is gang banger land. You need to stop with the stereotypes.

    @Medicinebow Anyone who's lived in D.C. is aware of the city's dirty secret: it essentially operates under an unwritten form of apartheid. In general, affluent, college-educated white folks with decent, steady incomes are clustered in the northwest quadrant. Their needs are serviced by a massive underclass, consisting largely of underprivileged immigrants, African-Americans, and Hispanics, that inhabits the remaining three quarters. Visitors to the city rarely glimpse this side of the city because there's little reason to venture beyond the fancy hotels, restaurants,

    This sh!t has been going on in Chicago since Capone. I think this is a real good segway into Valentines Day and Hallmark coming up with new cards.

    I know, let's declare Chicago a "Gun Free Zone". Tell every law abiding citizen in Chicago to "turn in your guns" or face a daily fine. I am sure that will cause the crime rate to go to zero....RIGHT. It can be Obama's testing grounds for his gun control mania sweeping the Liberal Left. When the gun violence actually INCREASES after taking away the guns, maybe they will get a clue? Probably not.

    Chicago has is a severe gang problem and all the talk in the world is not going to make a difference, the only thing that will make a difference is cracking down on the gangs hard.

    Have Obama speak to Chicago, I can hear it now.

    Obama; Chicago is a great city, Chicago doesn't have a murder epidemic problem. No, these are just protest. Protest over economicly irresponsible spending.
    Oh crap, more than half of that is all me.

    Obama is President of Candy Land. The man is a bunch line to a joke told around the world.

    Do you remember when Obama was still a Senator and Jesse Jackson was caught whispering to someone that he wanted to cut Obama's testicles off for talking down to black people?

    In order to put more shields on the street, Chicago would have to -shudder - RAISE TAXES!!!! Good luck getting any repub to admit that!!

    That's the scam alright. The politicians encourage and even give protection to certain gangs (allowing them to operate in exchange for monetary payoffs, taking down certain gangs that threaten the established ones, etc). The politicians then create more gun control, disarming citizens that are the main deterrant to criminal activities. This creates areas where criminals can prey upon the unarmed citizens more easily, and crime goes up. As crime goes up, then the polticians can extort more tax money out of the clueless people, and divert a percentage of that increased revenue to their pockets and corrupt police forces. It's nothing new, just the politicians/gangsters way.

    Majority of the problems are the gang bangers. The city government is so corrup
    When the city hosted the Democratic convention "Dead Fish " was paying the gang bangers to stop fighting while it was going on. The city government will not let the polie ecraxj down

    It couldn't hurt but it probably won't help. There isn't a gun problem in Chicago, there's a gang problem. The Latin Kings, Black P Stones, I could name em' all night. If they want to solve this problem, allow the citizens to arm themselves. Criminal thugglet cowards are real quick to run when they find the law abiding citizens are armed and trained to use said weapons. Chicago has the most stringent gun control standards in the USA, yet they have by far the most violent crime rate in the nation. 1+1=.......

    @Food4thoughts exactly, so arm the citizens and allow for them to shoot back. Chicago PD obviously isn't doing the job, not when the city is on track to surpass their already high rate of violent crimes (512 murders last year alone)
