Mother loses fourth child
to Chicago gun violence

CHICAGO (Reuters) - Shirley Chambers of Chicago had four children - three boys and a girl. Now they´re all gone. Chambers will bury her son, Ronnie Chambers, on Monday. He was the last of the single mother´s children - all victims of gun violence in Chicago over a period of 18 years. "I was in shock, truly, because I´m just knowing that Ronnie´s going to grow up and be an old man. That was in my heart," said Chambers, 54. The loss of four siblings to the same fate illustrates the depth of Chicago´s stubborn gun violence problem

Comments:
Emmanuel now wants the authority to enter the homes without warning or warrant of lawful gun owners in the name of enforcing the FOI card requirements.

No word on what he plans to do about the criminals.

She lost her child to GANG violence. But they don´t want to talk about that. Might insult some of the White House VIP guests.

Let´s get it straight. It is not GUN violence. The streets of the worst Chicago neighborhoods are not overrun by packs of guns, just lying in wait for someone to walk by so they can go off on their own.

If Chicago were beset by a wave of attacks by rabid dogs, we would not see headlines decrying the "tooth violence," and we would not hear calls to pull all the teeth from the mouths of chipmunks, squirrels, and horses. That would be rediculous. The rational response would be to remove the mad dogs from the streets.

Even though his Rap Sheet was over 100pgs long he´d "turned his life around" and was mentor/music producer for the rising star "Yung Killa"...Cabrini Green-tore down black owned homes/businesses and provided "free"Govt. housing, Govt.healthcare, Govt. schooling, Govt. Food, Govt. daycare, Govt. Transportation, Govt. adult Education, Govt. counseling, Govt. protection, and all they asked was that you vote for more Govt....and more Democrats. Single mother living off of the Govt. her WHOLE life...now has nothing but a broken heart from broken Promises. (Bet she still votes for ´em too)

I feel for the poor mother. I can imagine that relocating to a safer place would have been a challenge financially, but surely there was some way she could have managed it. Instead she chose to keep them in that dangerous environment. And it was a choice.

I moved my family out of the city for their protection. I suppose the addiction to government bennies is to addictive to give up, but surely she could have moved to a smaller town in Illinois and kept her government goodies. Wild horses could not keep me in a god forsaken place like Chi-town after the first one got killed.

Not to be crass, but Chi Land stories seem to all run together at this point. So many of these children who are killed by a gang member PULLING THE TRIGGER OF A GUN after it is pointed at a living being They seem to believe they are performing the abortion but way past the due date. Doesn´t death ever take a holiday in that town?

#11, that was totally uncalled for. It isn´t ALL blacks that live in these circumstances...and it isn´t only blacks either.

Yes, I feel bad for the poor woman. I know that people should try to do what they can to better their lives and protect their children. But what folks seem to forget is that these people have been conditioned for generations by leftist lies and policies. Their community leaders and "reverends" are also bought and paid for by the Democrat party to ensure that these people are held down, don´t dare question their "benefactors", pressure the people through peers if they try to change things, and keep them dependent. The people don´t think they can do any better. There are no jobs, their schools are horrible, and the women are practically expected to become single welfare mothers. The Democrat Party destroyed them and they love the fact thar these "undesirables" (remember progressives believe in eugenics and think some people are inferior) are killing each other. It is criminal.

This is going to continue until someone actually starts arresting and incarcerating these animals instead of blowing it off for fear of being called racists.

Yung Killa? That´s disappointing, but not as disappointing as the parish priest´s comments. I´m thinking number one on the problem list is no daddy at home, not mentioned at all by the priest. (Nice one, #8). Shouldn´t the priest working on getting his flock to marry before having children?

The article says she is a "Single Mother", but doesn´t say if her husband is dead, or if there ever was a husband. I´m thinking its just a string of "Baby Daddies". This all could have been avoided if she didn´t have an unwed litter of children. Or if she had maybe worked hard and tried to get them out of the environment they lived in instead of living off the dole. Oh yeah, and I´m sure that Ronnie´s "talent" and "Mentoring" of a rapper named "Yung Killa" was really going to take him places. Well, I guess things would have been far worse if they hadn´t lived in a city with the stricktest gun control laws in the country.

I find it hard to believe that 100% of this woman´s children were killed by random acts of violence. A little digging would probably uncover extensive gang ties for every one.

Unwed motherhood, and living on the dole in a housing project limits your choices in life, and this woman is living the consequences. My sympathy for her is limited.

When U.S. combat deaths drop to zero

The United States has been at war in Afghanistan longer than any conflict in our history. Regardless of what one might think of the war in terms of strategic value, it has been a brutal, deadly conflict, seemingly without end. But as U.S. forces prepare for the conflict’s end, we can already see the changes to U.S. casualty rates. Indeed, the month that just ended last night, March 2014, marked an extraordinary milestone: as Hayes Brown noted, it was “the first time in more than a decade that there were zero U.S. fatalities among American troops engaging in combat.” In Iraq, the

The Bay Area Toll Authority spent $9.4 million to build a temporary entrance so the Bay Bridge´s bike path could be ready when the new eastern span opened to traffic in September. And now - after less than seven months - the half-mile-long connector is being torn down to make way for a new, permanent gateway. That puts the cost to provide temporary bike and pedestrian access to the bridge at about $47,000 a day.

Everyone knew there would be some gun owners flouting the law that legislators hurriedly passed last April, requiring residents to register all military-style rifles with state police by Dec. 31. But few thought the figures would be this bad. That 50,000 figure could be as little as 15 percent of the rifles classified as assault weapons owned by Connecticut residents, according to estimates by people in the industry, including the Newtown-based National Shooting Sports Foundation. No one has anything close to definitive figures, but the most conservative estimates place the number of unregistered assault weapons well above 50,000, and perhaps

Police are investigating death threats against 5-year-old Disney Channel actress Mia Talerico. The "Good Luck Charlie" starlet has been the target of anonymous harassment and threats against her life posted online. "Good Luck Charlie," one of Disney´s most popular shows, recently made headlines for featuring the first openly gay couple on the network in a Jan. 26 episode. A lesbian couple was worked into the story line — and managed to cause outrage among conservative parenting groups — but the uproar will only be around one episode. It is unclear if any of the threats against Talerico were made in

The journalists at ABC News offered yet another high profile experiment to terrify the parents of America into not owning guns. In an hour-long special on Friday night, Diane Sawyer and David Muir hid pink guns at the playground of an elementary school in an effort to see if young girls would play with them. Unsurprisingly, the young children did. The Young Guns program also included the obvious revelation that firearms shouldn´t be concealed in backpacks and with candy. Diane Sawyer narrated, "For more than a decade, there has been a powder pink gun on the market." Referencing the location of

The Fire Island resort of Saltaire wants to seize private property — using taxpayer money. World War II vet Frank Whitney is locked in a legal battle with officials who want to take his Saltaire Market grocery by eminent domain in order to build their own updated version. And the upscale village may increase property taxes to do it, raising as much as $2.5 million to buy and rebuild the market, which was damaged during Hurricane Sandy. Whitney’s family says it wants to fix the store — the village’s only commercial property — and has the money to do so, but it accuses

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
