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.

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

Americans who are buying insurance plans over online exchanges, under what is known as Obamacare, will have limited access to some of the nation’s leading hospitals, including two world-renowned cancer centres. Amid a drive by insurers to limit costs, the majority of insurance plans being sold on the new healthcare exchanges in New York, Texas, and California, for example, will not offer patients’ access to Memorial Sloan Kettering in Manhattan or MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, two top cancer centres, or Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles, one of the top research and teaching hospitals in the country.

There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water. Cliven Bundy and his

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd. But

Hillary Clinton was the planned keynote speaker at the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego on April 11 - but she´s cancelled her visit in the midst of planned protests from San Diego locals and military families. Protestors organized by "The Difference Matters" do not want the former U.S. Secretary of State to come because of Clinton´s role in the Benghazi scandal. "She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don´t want her here," said Jan Iverson, a local mother and protestor. (Snip) Clinton´s office says she changed plans because of

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

As President Obama spoke of old "wounds” at Fort Hood this week, the White House declined a request from a survivor of the 2009 massacre there to meet with Obama for a few minutes so the veteran could explain face-to-face how he believes the government has mistreated and disrespected the victims of that attack. Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford (ret.) was shot seven times in November 2009 when Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood, killing 13 people. Despite Hasan’s admission that he carried out the attack on behalf of the Taliban and revelations that he had been

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven
