Two held in Chicago park shooting

Two people are in custody in connection with last week's shooting in Chicago, and a 3-year-old boy injured in gunfire remains in intensive care, authorities said Monday.

The two are regarded as "persons of interest," police told CNN. The Chicago Tribune quoted police as saying no charges have been filed against the two, who are men. They say that "several people of interest" were being interviewed.

    Why bother prosecuting? Obame's Common Core program encourages violence by teaching kids in La. about Po Pimps and Mobstaz, teaching kids in LA(That's Los Angeles, Trent) about gay history instead of world or American history, and teaches kids in Texas that the 9/11 hijackers were freedom fighters and conservative Christians are terrorists while making them wear burqas and read the Quran. Regardless of whether you think a teacher has a choice in choosing curriculum or not, only a liberal would teach that garbage to someone elses' kid.

      I'll repeat this: Good…now keep investigating and prosecute the idiots to the fullest extent of the law.

      We should let them go and not be prosecuted so Hamsta can feel vindicated that education isn't working. Great idea.

      L.A. is Los Angeles. Los Angeles is two words; the initials have a period to denote that they are initial abbreviations of those two words. LA is the state abbreviation for Louisiana.

      Not that it matters because it's completely irrelevant to the completely irrelevant post made to the topic, which is Chicago. 🙂

    send in the national guard. Gangs in the USA are terrorist. they kill innocent people and prey on the young. this needs to end. Would this be allowed to happen in Seattle, WA? Or Arlington, VA? perhaps Houston, TX? No it would not. Chicago is dying a very slow cruel death and when all the people leave do you think the gangs will stay there? no they will bleed out to all the nearby cities. Stop it before that happens and stop the innocents from being killed. this is an embarrassment. almost as bad as racism was for us 40 years ago

      Perhaps other cities should implement NYC's stop and frisk program? I am afraid I don't know the answer. Tragic.

      Better yet, stop forcing 9 year old children to learn about Po Pimps and Mobstaz. Oh yeah, your messiah, the great Oba-me thinks that is qualty learning material for 9 year old children.

      Sure thing, Hamsta. Getting rid of educational programs will definitely solve the gang problem. What was I thinking?

      Hey, Hamsta, you should look at the OP's use of state abbreviations. What do they have in common? Capitalization. 🙂

      The relevance here is that liberal democrat states and cities such as California, Detroit and Chicago are so successful that they force their deviant ways on the rest of the nation bringing their success to other areas of the nation. In other words, we see what Po Pimps and Mobstaz has done for chicago so leave liberalism and it's trashy ways where it belongs, in liberal run dumps such as California, Detroit and Chicago.

      Check. Dump education. Great plan! 🙂 That'll wipe the gangs riiiiiight out! Hey, when did New Orleans become such a liberal waste dump? How's the gang problem there?

      Actually since Katrina we have run the Bloods and the Crips out of New Orleans, we never really had gangs here, it's where your from. In other words you could get killed just for being outside your neighborhood. Since Katrina that has even cleaned up thanks to CONSERVATIVE police chiefs, Governor and other forms of CONSERVATIVE government. Now we just need to get rid of this liberal socialist democrat trash for a mayor that is trying to illegally sell my family's land.

      Ha ha, what a load. Bloods and Crips were not a presence there, smaller localized gangs were. And when K hit they went to shelters in other states and crime rose there from YOUR scum. What about the 89ers? The 110ers? Ha ha what a liar. :mrgreen:

    More evidence CNN is a politically biased liberal gossip rag- their new chief correspondent for national security, Jim Sciuttu, a political appointee of the Oba-Me administration. Only a complete stooge would think a political appointee can go straight from an appointed political position to journalism without political bias. So much for Zucker's "middle of the road" claim, with CNN's hiring of Jim Sciuttu makes them so far left that they are driving on the wrong side of the road. No wonder CNN forgot ( more than likely purposely) to mention political affiliation.
