The mother of the 15-year-old honor student who was shot dead days after performing at President Obama´s inauguration spoke out for more gun control Monday after police arrested two gang members for her daughter´s death. ´My baby deserves a revolution and I pray that what happened her to her will have an impact,´ said Cleopatra Cowley, whose daughter, Hadiya Pendleton, was killed the Chicago home of President Obama by a stray bullet. Michael Ward, 18, and Kenneth Williams, 20, are now charged with one count of first-degree murder, two counts of attempted murder and aggravated battery with a firearm,

These were probably unregistered guns which would never be registered. Criminals don´t register guns.

So her desire wouldn´t do diddly.

All the gun control advocates don´t realize the quantity of guns which would be left in criminals possession after law abiding citizens were relieved of their guns.

Maybe she should denounce the black culture of death and anti-social behavior and its despicable "leaders." Dr. Ben Carson may be an alternative, along with Clarence Thomas and a host of others.

If you try to ban and/or confiscate firearms from the law-abiding citizens, you will indeed have a revolution.

This has nothing to do with nothing, but I saw a picture of her and I believe she was either wearing a mink coat or a very good looking faux mink coat. Where´s Peta?

Who would she like to be in her daughter´s revolution? Blacks on blacks? Blacks on whites? I don´t think whites have anything to do with the killing in her town except for her white mayor who is either unwilling or unable to make it stop.

WGN had an exclusive last night with the father and his instant reaction to an arrest, poisoning the jury pool. Any defense attorney (Southern Poverty Law Center) would instantly demand a change of venue and 24 hour protection for his clients. In a week, this will be off the news as a plea arrangement is quietly made. No gun charges will be filed.

Gun control is only to hurt honest men and women. It helps the criminal and the dictators. Easy to attack the NRA when the problem is within the black community itself. No one is causing girls to have children. No one is causing the culture to glorify gangsta rap. No one but the entertainment field is to blame for promoting degrading of females and violence. Obama cares nothing about anyone. If he loved his ´people´ he would help them take responsibility. But the Evil One is only interested in power. I have a scorn for those who seek personal power..no matter what label they put after their name.

She is wrong. It takes more than a revolution. It takes repentance & a turning back to God. These young lives are being lost because many prefer lawlessness to godliness. No number of human laws are going to fix gangs until the black community recognizes its responsibility in allowing black marriages to die.

You say you want a revolution?

But if you want money for people with minds that hate
All I can tell you is brother you have to wait

You say you´ll change the Constitution
Well you know
We all want to change your head

You tell me it´s the institution
Well you know
You better free your mind instead

But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao
You ain´t going to make it with anyone anyhow

What the Left needs is a revolution of thought, but they seek a revolution of violence that they purport to abhor.

The revolution that Cleoptra is calling for has to be in stopping the liberal view that blacks are perpetual children, or worse, inferior to the white race. Viewing American born blacks as a group that can´t be expected to accept our mores and cultural values provides liberals (Democrats) endless excuses to blame America for the crime, the astounding illegitimacy rates and the endless dehumanizing behavior,

While liberals will bristle at the charge, the obvious failure of so many blacks to accept the norms of Western society is overlooked. Instead, Dutch slavers in 1690 are at fault, not the people born here 300 years later.

#18, I will have to file that line away for future use.

OP, "sic" is only used to mock people at churches and Tea Party rallies who dare to misspeak.

That having been said, what that child deserved was to be raised in a decent neighborhood without feral animals roaming the streets. My parents had to move a lot because of my father´s job, and they often would select a modest house in the town with safe streets and great schools, instead of living in a much larger place in a bad neighborhood. When parents make sacrifices for their kids, those sacrifices pay off. The decesased young lady´s mother does not look like one to make sacrifices for anyone. Now she can join the Gabby Giffords-Mark Kelly Express and make a buck off of her misfortune.

What´s the prospect of finding the killer of Donald Young (the intimate of obama) and his friend who was so brutally assassinated once obama started campaigning? All were members of the Rev. Wright´s church of the down-low.

Did they EVEN try to solve those murders?

Cleopatra needed to hire a moving van before her daughter was murdered. Now she wants a revolution because she chose to play Russian roulette with her children´s education and lives. How many millions of Americans have fled formerly nice neighborhoods when they´ve been overrun by violent lowlifes but I guess Cleopatra couldn´t be bothered.

It is a shame when someone is killed and someone is promising as this young lady was. But, you need to start cleaning up your neighborhoods, maybe you should have moved if it was so dangerous, maybe you should have spoken up and demanded gang violence be stopped, maybe you could have worked with the police to identify gang members. Start in the inner city neighborhoods and that is where the revolution you desire against guns should start.

The city failed to keep a public park it knew was near a school safe for the community. It allowed a gang to take over the space. That is what set the stage for Hadiya´s murder. I would be delighted to see zero tolerance for gangs. They are criminal enterprises, and there´s not a doubt in my mind that Hadiya´s killers have rap sheets showing one slap on the wrist after another, rather than serious punishment.

My sympathies on the loss of your bright and lovely daughter, Ms. Cowley. I know nothing could be more difficult. But the "revolution" that could save lives is not gun control, it´s a cultural revolution that needs to happen in the inner cities. Stop protecting the gangster rappers and film makers. Stop protecting those who elevate thugs.

Re: mink coats...here in Durham, fur coats are almost exclusively seen on black women (not white) even on the most balmy days and even in the most inappropriate settings, such as waiting rooms at Duke Medical Center.

If ya got it, flaunt it, right? As for me, I gave my furs to the hospital auxilliary resale shop years ago. Not because I am a PETA nut, but because it´s just too hot down here to wear fur.

The two who have been arrested had illegal guns. Gun control would have done nothing to stop them. In fact, in Illinois, it´s already illegal to have a concealed carry (but soon to be legal, with permits, thanks to SCOTUS).

#39, we "should care" whether the inner-city mother wears fur and has a smart phone because it shows they may have had the financial resources to live elsewhere, but chose to stay in a troubled area. That illustrates they do have control over their destiny. I also noticed the *diamond* studs in her ears, and purple eyeshadow. Who goes into full fashion/make-up mode to attend their child´s funeral?

PS: Also noted the mother and daughter had different last names.

The Hague-—President Barack Obama, seeking to shift the trajectory of the crisis in Ukraine, will press U.S. allies Monday to suspend Russia from the Group of Eight leading nations and to adopt more sweeping sanctions against the Russian economy, administration officials said. Mr. Obama will argue for those steps in an emergency meeting Monday evening with leaders of the world´s top seven economies, held on the sidelines of a nuclear security summit in The Hague, officials said.

Washington--One in five people who signed up for health insurance under the new health care law failed to pay their premiums on time and therefore did not receive coverage in January, insurance companies and industry experts say. Paying the first month’s premium is the final step in completing an enrollment. Under federal rules, people must pay the initial premium to have coverage take effect. In view of the chaotic debut of the federal marketplace and many state exchanges, the White House urged insurers to give people more time, and many agreed to do so. But, insurers said, some people missed

‘Aid in Dying’ Movement

DENVER — Helping the terminally ill end their lives, condemned for decades as immoral, is gaining traction. Banned everywhere but Oregon until 2008, it is now legal in five states. Its advocates, who have learned to shun the term “assisted suicide,” believe that as baby boomers watch frail parents suffer, support for what they call the “aid in dying” movement will grow further. In January, the New Mexico Supreme Court authorized doctors to provide lethal prescriptions and declared a constitutional right for “a competent, terminally ill patient to choose aid in dying.” Last May, the Vermont Legislature passed a law

Washinton--A Congressional Budget Office analysis released Tuesday predicted that the Affordable Care Act would shrink the work force by the equivalent of more than two million full-time positions and recharged the political debate over the health care law, providing Republican opponents fresh lines of attack and putting Democrats on the defensive. The nonpartisan budget office’s analysis, part of a regular update to its budget projections, was far more complicated than the Republican attack lines it generated. Congressional Republican leaders called the findings “devastating,” “terrible” and proof that the health care law was a job killer. (Snip)Senator Joe Manchin III, Democrat

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the
