At least 19 shot in last 24 HRS in Chicago including Mom and teenage sons, National Media? AWOL  Of course

chicagoTwo and a half years ago a deranged person killed 20 White children in Newtown,Connecticut. The national media was Johnny-On-The Spot to cover the story. White kids getting killed is automatically national news.

And I said on this very blog that a Newtown-style massacre occurs every week in Chicago. It wasn’t an over exaggeration then, and it isn’t hyperbole now.

I would wager a million dollars had a Republican been president for the past 7 years, Chicago would be front page news every day of the week with a daily body count. But, since this is Barack Obama’s hometown, the carnage only gets local coverage,

Mom, 2 teenage kids shot on porch; ‘No badder place in Chicago’


ChicagoTribune reports Derrick Givens was sleeping with the windows open when he awoke to gunfire. He counted nine shots.

Givens went outside and saw police gathered around a porch near his West Chatham home where a mother and her two teenage children had been wounded in a drive-by late Tuesday night.

“This area is notorious,” Givens, 54, said as he stood at 80th Street and Stewart Avenue with neighbors, watching detectives work. “There’s no badder place in Chicago.”
The three were among 19 people shot, three fatally, in a 12-hour span across Chicago beginning Tuesday afternoon.

The 41-year-old mother and her children — a 14-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy — were sitting outside their home in the 8000 block of South Stewart around 11:40 p.m. Tuesday when someone inside a passing white vehicle opened fire, police said.
