Hoodie-Wearing Gunmen Kill 1, Wound 5 in Bobby Rush's Chicago District

by Dan Riehl

Former Black Panther Rep. Bobby Rush (D-IL) made quite a fuss when he donned a "hoodie" during a speech in the U.S. House of Representatives until he was escorted out. At the time, former Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) "applauded his courage" for doing so.

Meanwhile, back home in Rush's district, two men wearing hooded sweatshirts, or "hoodies," were the shooters in an incident that left one dead and five injured.

In fact, during a span of six-hours Thursday night, 13 people were shot, leaving two dead in Chicago. It would seem it takes more courage to simply walk down the street in Rush's district than it does to wear a hooded sweatshirt in the House of Representatives by way of a stunt in a bizarre tribute to a young man shot and killed in Florida during a shooting incident still under investigation.

13 shot, 2 dead in Chicago in six hours Thursday night

The worst shooting occurred around 6 p.m. Thursday when two men in hooded sweatshirts opened fire inside a convenience store in the 1400 block of West 79th Street in the Gresham neighborhood, police said.

One man was killed and five others were wounded. The victims ranged in age from 16 to 24. The gunmen fled in an SUV and police continued searching for them this morning.

There's also another report on that particuar incident here.

Perhaps if Bobby Rush and Nancy Pelosi ever got around to actually doing something to uplift the people in Rush's district, there would be fewer stories like the one above out of Chicago, and less need to don a piece of clothing in Congress in what amounts to an empty and silly gesture.

    what gets me is the drive by shooting and killing of the 6 year old girl on her front porch (in chicago couple weeks ago) no comment or outrage about it. guess living in a war zone and being killed by your own color is normal now days. but some 17 year old kid in sanford .. well that is a totally different thing.

    Keep peddling your race baiting BS you piece of garbage.

    As an American Policitician representing the USA you should stand for the rule of law and be working to better our nation in a peaceful orderly manner, not by throwing race baiting bombs from our nations capital.

    Libs this may turn out to be exactly what your trying to make it out to be, lets lets the wheels of justice work and not try to improperly influence them.

    I will stand with you libs calling for this mans head if what you accuse him of is proven in court or even close to proven
