Kid will be lucky if he makes it to 15 years old.

From MyFoxChicago: Police are warning residents about a series of robberies last month in the Bronzeville neighborhood on the South Side, including one in which a young boy reportedly brandished a handgun.

In each incident, a group of three to nine male suspects have approached victims on the sidewalk, in parking lots or in the hallways of residential buildings and demanded or forcibly taken the victims’ property, according to a community alert from Chicago Police.

In the most recent robbery, a boy who was reportedly between 6 and 8 years old showed a silver handgun and demanded money, police said.

The hold-ups occurred:

At 7:57 p.m. June 28 in the 0-100 block of East 29th; At 6 p.m. June 26 in the 2900 block of South King; At 4:10 p.m. June 9 in the 0-100 block of West 30th; At 9:30 p.m. June 8 in the 2900 block of South King; At 8:30 p.m. June 7 in the 2900 block of South King; At 4:45 p.m. June 7 in the 2900 block of South Indiana; At 10:30 p.m. June 4 in the 2600 block of South Michigan; At 6 p.m. June 4 in the 2700 block of South Indiana; At 2:15 p.m. June 4 in the 2900 block of South Michigan; At 9 p.m. June 3 in the 2900 block of South Michigan; and At 3 p.m. June 3 in the 2900 block of South King.

  1. In his 8 years in the WH, Obama, who claims Chicago as his second home town (after Honolulu), did nothing. Democrat mayor Emanuel did and continues to do nothing. But President Trump is doing something about Chicago’s gun homicide epidemic:

    That fact must be repeatedly emphasized and Chicago’s citizens be made aware, because the MSM aren’t and won’t do it.

  2. If, this doesn’t scare the bejesus our of you, nothing will. He would be one of the first to pull the trigger, he has no idea death is permenent. These kids nowadays have become so harden.

    • I certainly agree with you. I think this is a case of Monkey See . . . Monkey Do. At that young an age, they just do not fully comprehend what it is they are doing, but they are replicating what they have seen or heard that others who are older are doing. This is just atrocious.

  3. I blame parents for this situation. And many young people today are fatalistic, and think of death in romantic terms. Very sad and not necessary.

    When is the White race going to wake up to the , obvious fact, that the races are not the same, & they certainly , are not equal,..


  5. I hope and pray President Trump is successful in MAGA, including everyone in Chicago. If not, people will be renaming a Middle Eastern country, “Ircago.”

  6. They have a “cultural” problem. Look at South Africa. For every family who are civilized, there are a hundred who are not. In fact, the concept of “family” is quite different. A “Baby Mama” is not a “mother” in the sense that most relate to. A “father” is not someone who drops by once a month when the checks come.

    I don’t have a solution for this. I know that it can be improved but the first step in that direction is to identify the problem. If it gets bad enough maybe the “answer” is to build a fence around it and declare it a prison. I’ve suggested that about D.C. many times and I mean it.

    • As long as you keep the lifer politicos in there too.
      Political office was supposed to be a part time gig, not a lifer position. You know, after the 3 or 4 month sessions were over you’d go back to your other job on the farm or ranch.

  7. They made Escape from New York about the wrong city.

    They should have walled-off Chicago instead.

  8. Can you imagine the hell you would be put through if you properly defended yourself against an armed child?

    You’d almost be better off dead…

    • That’s (using kids) is a typical tactic of terrorists in war zones. Military folk learn to expect it. Doesn’t make it any easier…


      • Nobody would want to harm kid. On the other hand, everybody has a right to defend themselves and others. While it certainly isn’t the kid’s fault that they were born into this world with worthless parents, no one should expect to have to give up their lives simply to avoid harm to the harmful.

        Places like this are every bit “war zones” as any other war torn place. Sympathy is not going to fix this. Either walk away, get a wall between you and them, or prepare to fight it out.

        The beauty of exclusion is that, after they cull their own herd, you have the remainder in jail already. Once things die down you can decide who to let out and who stays.
