I'm giving up political correctness in favor of transparency-just what Obama and Rahm and so many other pols are committing to give us. So, what grade was he in when he dropped out of school, what gangs is he affliated with, how many previous arrests and incarcerations has he had, how many children does he have and by how many mothers, how many are the taxpayers supporting and what kind of weapon did he have and was it registered. Also, was the 7-11 cashier an obedient citizen, a law abiding citizen-weaponized or not?

We'll never know what Danni is asking but good questions. Scary that gang members are moving this way. Lived here for 50 years and this really bothers me.

Nantuk-thanks for your affirmation-I forgot to ask if the CRIMINAL was carrying his FOID CARD!
