Has Obama commented on the handgun murder of the 15 year girl



who sang at his inauguration?

Has he used it as a platform to discuss murders by handgun in Chicago? If he has, I missed it.

quote:

Friends who witnessed the random gunning down of a 15-year-old Chicago girl less than a week after she performed at President Obama’s inauguration continue to grapple with the senseless loss of the prep school honors student.

“She was honestly like the happiest person I know and I don't know, like, how to cope with this because it shouldn't have been her,” an emotional Klyn Jones said of her friend, Hadiya Pendleton. “It shouldn't have been anyone but especially not her.”

Pendleton was killed Tuesday afternoon in a quiet south-side neighborhood less than a mile from Obama’s Chicago home. She was huddling with Jones and other friends under a canopy to escape the rain when an unidentified gunman came at them, opened fire, and then escaped the scene in a car.

Why should he? He got what he wanted out of her a few days ago.

Unlikely since it highlights fundamental problems in his home town. You have to ask yourself: with gun control in Chicago and Obama's inspirational influence on the Black community as POTUS, why is there so much senseless violence in Chicago?

It was just another day in his hood so why would you expect him to take note as it did not rise to the crisis level?

re: Has Obama commented on the handgun murder of the 15 year girl


seriously, do you realize how fricked we are as a country and in the media

the news covered all day and night the Houston "university shooting" in which NOBODY DIED and then used it to mock the state of Texas and their "gun laws"

In the end it turned out to just be a shooting between two black people who got into an argument, but since it happened "on a university" they covered it...yet they won't report actual murders that happen every day in inner cities

Exactly and this truth is the key for conservatives. Liberal bias needs to be well documented and revealed for what it is. Obama and the libs in general complain about Fox News and talk radio but the truth is we need more conservative perspective, not less. The truth is almost every form of education and media is dominated by liberal views which to a large extent explains why our nation has transformed that way it has.

In all honesty, in some parts of this city it's the Wild Wild West. And it's always black on black.

re: Has Obama commented on the handgun murder of the 15 year girl


If he did, there would be threads attacking him for exploiting her death.... correction... whoring out her death kinda like the one about Gabbie Giffords.

Watch when/if he does how soon you see the threads.

Had he not 'whored out' other deaths (Sandy Hook, Trayvon Martin) then he'd have a more defensible position here.


If you pick and choose....you get analyzed for your picking and choosing.

If Obama was "whoring out" the deaths of the Sandy Hook children, so were the parents of the children... and I don't think you believe that.

You know I said this in another thread, James Brady and President Reagan were both shot and used that tragedy to push for gun control. LINK Yet I doubt any conservative would say they were "useful idiots" and were whoring themselves out, which is what was said about Gabbie Giffords.

Of course they were....and, I UNDERSTAND that. They were emotional wrecks and are the LEAST likely to provide useful input (IMO). I've never understood the "victim is the expert" bull shite. Its emotional poppy-cock.

I have said many time that there are reasonable limits. I think the 7 Days Before Delivery is excessive....NOW. We have much quicker access to background records....NOW

This one does.

As she is / was. Again, i UNDERSTAND her position. I just don't think receiving a bullet makes you a great authority on gun issues / mental health issues.


Sorry...Victims being exalted as highly valuable resources seems goofy to me.

Clearly input from victims represents a valuable but obviously least objective perspective.

I would be happy enough if Fox would dedicate a little more time and resources to fact-checking. As the one conservative voice they shouldn't make it so easy for the MSM to write them off as quacks.

so no response to my post?

don't you think its messed up how our media decides what's "important" to make a narrative?

the shooting in Houston turned out to just be a shooting between two black guys (and no one died), but since it happened "at a University" it was used as breaking news and talked about all day...yet a death of a 15 year old girl is nothing? all of the inner city murders every day are nothing?

its sad
