‘A Different Attitude:’ Gang Funerals
Will Include Searches, Tight Security

CBS [Chicago], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:BaseballFan, 12/5/2012 3:25:28 PM

Mayor Rahm Emanuel says Chicago police are making strong moves to confront continuing city violence—which has included violent attacks at funerals. The mayor expressed anger that people have been shooting and carrying guns at gang-member funerals. “The police department is going to change the way they deal with gang funerals,” he said. “If you cannot respect a place of worship, at a time of a funeral, we are going to show a different type of attitude.” The funerals will be treated as “gang events,” with mourners being searched and patted down, among other security measures.

Welcome to Chicago: please check your Bill of Rights at the gate.

Hey, a new role for TSA. Funeral screeners. Then Rahm will let ´em go back to blowing each other away on the streets. Yup, need more "gun control" and not gang banger control....

Just last week Rahm was saying that Chicago is America´s most American city, I sure hope not.

Maybe the cemetery`s in the area can save money by digging 3 holes for one every death.

Rahm -- every bit as clueless as Obama [and yes, Obama has far more wrong with him than that].

We all know a version of the aphorism reminding us that for every problem, there´s a solution that´s simple, neat, and wrong.

Require lawful, non-violent behavior just at funerals? Hunh? No respect for churches is the real problem? Wha´?

Fish-boy, the problem is you have a large, violent, unconstrained sub-culture which is being allowed to run wild; which pays little or no [price for its crimes; and is not being subjugated by lawful authority protecting the safety and the legitimate rights of the larger population. Oh -- the members of that sub-culture are pretty easy to find and identify.

If you really wanted to.

Yea, right...same old same old...honest people obey the law, malcontents and idiots don´t....

That´s the Rahm way!!!

Better yet, give them all guns and lock the cemetary gates until the shooting stops.

Emanuel actually expects lawless gang members , who routinely blow each other away for wearing

Really ?

Sounds like a good plan to take out on the streets. Just pat down everyone the cops see. Wonder where that might get them?

The ACLU would go to court for sure but in the interim, think how many guns would be dropped into sewer grates.

Oh, wait, Chicago is a gun free zone. There are no guns! s/off

Gang funerals are held in churches that hide and defend the gangs. I wonder how many Pflager officiated?

Embattled New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner said he doesn’t care what people say or how critics respond — he’s not leaving the race. “You’re stuck with me,” he told the Staten Island Advance in an interview published Sunday. That’s on the heels of scathing criticism from even members of his own Democratic Party, who are apparently on their last legs of support for the former congressional member who can’t seem to curb his sexting scandal.

SACRAMENTO (AP) — California prisoners have unprotected sexual contact, forced or consensual, even if both are illegal, and this reality often leads to the spread of HIV and other diseases in prisons and in communities where felons are paroled. Setting up a difficult conversation, one state lawmaker says it´s time to give inmates a way to practice safe sex behind bars to reduce an infection rate that experts say is much higher than that of the general population. The proposal from Oakland Democratic Assemblyman Rob Bonta comes despite a law prohibiting any sex between inmates, ...

Beverly - This Sunday, the streets of Beverly will look just like they always do. And that’s the problem, some veterans say. The city has cancelled its annual Memorial Day parade for what’s believed to be the first time since the end of the Civil War. Many veterans who were gathered at the Herman A. Spear American Legion Post on Friday night are upset by the decision. “It’s not right to me,” says Ron Innocenti. He is a Vietnam veteran who has not only marched in the city’s Memorial Day parade in the past, he says he has also been its grand marshal. He hates to cancel because

As Americans prepare for Memorial Day—the official kickoff to a summer grilling season of burgers and T-bones—rising beef prices have some consumers balking in the grocery aisles. Retail beef prices are widely expected to set new records in coming weeks after wholesale prices, or the amount meatpackers charge sellers for beef, hit an all-time peak this past week. After achieving new highs for three weeks, choice-grade beef, the most common variety in the U.S., jumped to $2.1137 a pound Thursday, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

“IQ is a metric of such dubiousness that almost no serious educational researcher uses it anymore,” the Guardian’s Ana Marie Cox wrote back in May. It was a breathtakingly ignorant statement. Psychologist Jelte Wicherts noted in response that a search for “IQ test” in Google’s academic database yielded more than 10,000 hits — just for the year 2013. (Snip) There is a large discrepancy between what educated laypeople believe about cognitive science and what experts actually know. Journalists are steeped in the lay wisdom, so they are repeatedly surprised when someone forthrightly discusses the real science of mental ability.

The Clintons have decided to rent a different house in the Hamptons this summer after they only received a small portion of their security deposit back from the home they rented last year. The famous Democrats have been frequent visitors to the expensive summer getaway in Long Island, and rented the same beachfront house in 2011 and 2012. [Snip] When it comes to rentals in the Hamptons, many owners use the security deposits as a way to pay for the utility fees like heat and grounds-keeping charges.

Justice: The wife of a Fort Hood survivor claims the Defense Department is "slapping victims with gag orders" and telling family members not to talk to the press following testimony in the trial of Nidal Hasan. One of the great scandals of the Obama administration has been its shameful designation of the Nov. 5, 2009, rampage at the Army base in Killeen, Texas, by Maj. Nidal Hasan as "workplace violence." It has only compounded the pain and suffering of the victims and their families who have now apparently been ordered to shut up about it.

Tonight, I went on Lawrence O´Donnell´s show, and Lawrence O´Donnell yelled at me. Or, rather, he O´Reilly´d at me. That O´Donnell interrupted and harangued and mansplained and was generally an angry grandpa at me is not what I take issue with, however. What bothers me is that, look: your producers take the time to find experts to come on the show, answer your questions, and, hopefully, clarify the issue at hand.
