Before Obama Lectures Us on Gun Control & Personal Responsibility … Maybe He Would Like to Clean Up Home Town of Chicago as Teen Mob Action Takes Over Chicago’s Gold Coast, Numerous Arrests
Mob action in Chicago’s Gold Coast leads to arrest of 25 juveniles and three adults were charged. Before President Barack Obama lectures us about gun control, safety and personal responsibility, maybe he would like to clean up his own back yard first. Even though Chicago has some of the most strict gun laws in the US, Chicago’s murders were triple that of NYC in January 2013. Chicago has just gotten out of control. Something needs to be done about these punks. What has happened to this once great city?
CBS 2 has learned about multiple incidents in at least four different locations along the Magnificent Mile and in the Gold Coast, yielding a slew of arrests. In all, 25 juveniles and three adults were charged.
Many innocent shoppers and tourists became caught in the middle of a very chaotic situation. Hundreds of teens littered Michigan Avenue and State Street near Chicago.
Things started turn bad around 6:00 p.m. Saturday, with teens purposely bumping into people, and causing fights among themselves.
Fifteen juveniles and two adults were arrested and charged with misdemeanor reckless conduct in connection with the incidents on Michigan Avenue.
The PJ Tatler makes a rather astute and alarming prophecy … “This does not bode well for the coming months. With youth unemployment among blacks at historic levels, kids are going to be left with little to do except see what kind of trouble they can get in.”
UPDATE I: The best and most appropriate title of the post comes from Doug Ross - 500 “Youths” That Could Have Been Obama’s Kids Rampage Through Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, Assault Shoppers and Police.
Tennessee Considers Training & Arming Schoolteachers with Guns To Protect Against Shootings Like Sandy Hook Elementary School (Virginia as Well)
More is better … especially when it comes to the safety of our children …
It’s time to look at all options. In the wake of the horrendous Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings, the Volunteer state of Tennessee is considering training and arming teachers in classrooms to help protect children. In an effort to look at all options to protect innocent school children and not just “banning” guns. Republican State Sen. Frank Niceley will introduce a bill that would allow the state to pay for secretly armed teachers in classrooms. When asked if putting more guns in schools in the wake of Newtown might make them more dangerous, Niceley said the sentiment was naïve. Not only does an unarmed school leave itself unprotected, it also presents a tempting target.
Tennessee has emerged this week as a center of the “the answer is more guns in schools” sentiment following the Newtown, Conn. elementary school shooting.
A member of the Republican-controlled legislature plans during its upcoming session to introduce a bill that would allow the state to pay for secretly armed teachers in classrooms so, the sponsor told TPM, potential shooters don’t know who has a gun and who doesn’t.
Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam (R) has said the idea will be part of his discussions about how to prevent a shooting like the one in Newtown from happening in the Volunteer State.
As has been seen following other mass shootings, there’s a strong segment of the gun rights lobby that says the answer to events like the one in Newtown is more guns in more places. But they’ve said the recent massacre shows how important it is to put guns into elementary schools, where even gun-friendly states like Tennessee don’t currently allow them.
America needs to get serious about protecting our greatest recourses and the idea that just banning so-called assault weapons is hardly the answer. If that is all that is on the table, then politicians are only concerned about their liberal anti-gun agenda, not children. The first anti-assault weapons ban did little to stop crime. In the case of the tragic shooting in Newtown, CT, we are presented with so many other issues, like mental illness, violent video games, and an individual who as many people described as just off, awkward and out of place. After 911, we did not ban box cutters, the US put armed federal marshals on planes, ramped up screening procedures to get on planes, created no-fly lists, reinforced cockpit doors and many other safety procedures. The same must be done to out school. If we can have armed guards in banks protecting money, its the least we can do to protect something much more valuable than money, our children.
State Sen. Frank Niceley (R) told TPM on Tuesday he believes it’s time for that to change. He plans to introduce legislation in the next session, which begins Jan. 8, that will require all schools to have an armed staff member of some kind. The current language of the bill — which is in its early form — would allow for either a so-called “resource officer” (essentially an armed police officer, the kind which most Tennessee high schools have already) or an armed member of the faculty or staff in every school in the state. The choice would allow schools that can’t afford a resource officer to fulfill the requirement without having to pay for anything beyond the cost of the training and, presumably, the weapon. But Niceley said schools should use the wiggle room to train and keep on hand armed staff not in uniform.
UPDATE I: Gov. Bob McDonnell (R-VA) consider guns for school officials as well.
Gov. Bob McDonnell (R-Va.) said on Tuesday that it’s “time to have a discussion” about arming school officials, in wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Conn.
“If someone had been armed, there would have been a possibility to stop the person from coming into the school,” McDonnell said on Washington’s WTOP radio’s “Ask the Governor” monthly program responding to a caller’s question. “I know there is a knee-jerk reaction against that, but I think we should have a discussion about it.”

Just in case any of you were still confused whether the Tea Party was anything like the Occupy protesters, exhibit 752 …
The classless fools of Occupy Dallas showed their true colors in throwing fake blood on the windows of Neiman Marcus. Because we all know that the Tea Party would have done the same, NOT! Wow, you showed them OWS. What a statement you made. What’s next taping “Occupy Me” signs to the walls? Photos of the Occupy thug life vandalism can be seen at Hot Air Pundit.
A few minutes ago, Occupy Dallas posted to its Facebook page a note that two of its former members — which is to say, the group of protesters who split the camp before Dallas Police broke it up last week — were arrested for decorating the downtown Neiman Marcus with a little fake blood. We’re trying to confirm the arrests with DPD, but as you can see from Leslie’s freshly snapped photo, yup, some of its holiday windows are now a little less festive.
Dallas Police Department spokesman Sherri Jeffrey confirms that “two people were arrested for criminal mischief.”
