    Chicago Gets Better and Better...Inauguration Teen Killed!

    Hadiya Pendleton, all of 15 years old, was gunned down at a park in Chicago

    As Congress holds a much-anticipated hearing on gun control, there was a disturbing reminder that gun violence in America never takes a break. It's been reported that Hadiya Pendleton, a 15-year-old girl from Chicago, was gunned down on Tuesday, just days after she performed with her school band at President Obama's inauguration. Pendleton — an honors student, volleyball player, and majorette at King College Prep — was shot at a park just blocks away from her school.

    According to reports, Pendleton was among 12 teenagers who had taken shelter from the rain under a canopy in Vivian Gordon Harsh Park. An unidentified gunman then jumped the park's fence and allegedly opened fire. In addition to Pendleton, who later died from her wounds, a teenage boy was shot and is currently in serious condition at the hospital.

    Details of the incident remain unclear, though initial reports suggest that Pendleton was not the primary target of the attack.

    Since the school massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, in December, more than 1,400 people have been killed in gun violence across the country.

    • Many of these reported killings are fake. It is part of the plan to de-arm citizens so the obama posse can take total control. beware !!

      • The above incident was true - I checked it out!
        However Congress is NEVER going to make gun crime go away with the gun laws they are proposing, most of them are on the books already and are only obeyed by honest citizens!
        Instead of fighting for turf amongst the gangs in the drug business, the new add on will be dealing in guns, some already do!!!
        OBIMBO is coming to Minneapolis on Monday, Friday is too cold for him (-14F with wind chill of -35F) - a display of real urgency on gun control! He is going to make the liberal state of MN his model - he doesn't know what he gets into! What a waste of tax payers money and MN is already in the RED again.
