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

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
