I heard a radio news item that a person was arrested for throwing a rock at a Goose and killing it after someone called the police. There was another item that a gang banger on his death bed refused to name his killer.
Both of these stories occurred on the South Side of Chicago. The south side is notorious for gangs and murders. Another thing they're renowned for is not talking to the police. There are numerous killings there but no one will "rat" on the killers! And yet a goose gets a call to the police!
Chicago's Mayor Daley (a dem of course) wants to outlaw guns for the normal people who only want to be able to defend themselves. He is doing nothing to get the guns away from the gangs or crooks.
I love animals (but not mosquitoes) but feel that human life is more important. What's going on here?
Chicago has 2.7 times the national average for murders; 2.18 times the national average for violent crimes.
