#1 More evidence of the successful leadership and administration provided by the Chicago political machine. Now playing nationally.

#2 How could they be shot with the massive gun control still in effect in Chicago? /sarcasm off

File under: the bad guys never care about 'gun control'.

#3 "It's like rarely do you see a police officer drive by," said 12-year-old Beverly Lambert.

And if little Beverly did see constant police patrols, her neighborhood would be "under siege" and "oppressed by police". The police don't come around much because they know without a shadow of a doubt that they're not welcome.

#4 Let me see if I understand: those are the neighborhoods Obama organized and he was elected president despite his dismal failure?

#5 Perspective, of course police aren't welcome.

If you are a crook, you want to rob people, you don't like police.

If you are a decent citizen, what do you think of police? If you tell them where the crooks are, your life is going to be short. If you buy a gun to defend yourself, you are now a crook, and risk getting shot by the police.

I don't have any solutions, but the problems are clear.

#6 It is high time the US pulled out of Chicago. Clearly it is our presence there that is generating more violence than it is preventing.

Having occupied Chicago since its founding in 1837, it is obvious that our results have come bear no fruit. We shouldn't be babysitting a civil war. Chicago needs to be split into three different regions; This Side, That Side, and The Other Side.

We are never going to get the corruption and violence under control so there is little point in trying. All National Guard forces currently in the Chicago area should be redeployed to Goshen.

#9 CBS 2 wanted to speak with Chicago Police Supt. Jody Weis about the startling statistics, but we were told by an aide that after leaving federal court Monday morning, he was too busy.

Witness or defendant?

#11 CBS 2 Chief Correspondent Jay Levine asks why, and what is being done to stop it.

Possible Solutions:
1. Combat pay for teachers.
2. Hire Blackwater to supply Community Organizers.
3. Predator drones.
4. Form militia, "Sons of Chicago".
5. Bi-lingual education in Gangsta Rap.
6. Send Gang Bangers to guard passes in Tora Bora.
7. Phoenix program and rendition.
8. Midnight Basketball, that'll due the trick.
