Well, that’s a depressing way to commemorate the MLK holiday. A drive-by gunman reportedly shot 5 teenagers at an intersection in the Central City neighborhood named after Dr. Martin Luther King. A half-hour before the shooting, residents greeted the MLK parade.

No kidding.

Where is the national conversation on youth violence?

    I bet it wasn’t a legally owned gun and it wouldn’t be on any national register.

    “shooting not related to MLK day parade”

    Hmmm…I wonder why they would conclude that…

      Well they are able to determine if any explosion or shooting has any connection to terrorists within a few minutes now. At least, that’s what the Public Relations folks say.

        Yeah, they just search the area for a “Hello Kitty” Bubble Blowing gun.

    So in others words just another normal day in the hood.

    Hopefully the shooter (and poor victims) were black, again, so we won’t have to hear the Left demagogue these goofy gun laws for the next 5 days!

    To the Left, gun violence is only newsworthy if it’s a white person who resembles or could resemble Republicans. But even if it’s a light brown Mexican Democrat like George Zimmerman … well even that’s considered close enough to call a white Republican, in the name of fairness, lol.

    I just love how everyone both Left and Right creams themselves over how absolutely wonderful and beautiful black people are and how miraculous it was that we finally ended “evil” racial segregation; not to mention the hilarious “conservative” worship of MLK (a communist), while blacks run around shooting people – on a street named after MLK no less…

      Jamie Foxx tells a joke that streets named after the greatest Civil Rights leader and a man who advocated peaceful resistance is the worst place to be after dark.

    I wonder how long it will take Jesse and Al to get down there to protest the….oh. Yeah.

    Never mind.
