GO FIGURE:  Chicago gangs hit new lows…  kids as human shields

Chicago's violence continues unabated.  As of this morning, our friends at HeyJackass.com have Chicago's homicides at 390…  with 25 more "death investigations".  My favorite "death investigation" from 2016?  The guy who supposedly killed himself with a chainsaw…  after sustaining defensive wounds on his hands.  Gangsters know it's open season on them.  So what are...

OH, THE IRONY:  Chicago anti-gun activist shot dead

Chicago's non-stop violent crime keeps mortuary services and hospitals busy. Among the customers last weekend: 58-year-old anti-gun, anti-violence "activist" Willie Cooper. At one point in a wild weekend in Rahm's Wild West, thirty people fell to (mostly gang-related) gunfire, nine fatally, in the span of 18 hours. Contrast that with 54 percent of American...

The series has grown sharper with each passing episode, following a certain former president's advice to hit back twice as hard. Now Grant Stinchfield delivers another blistering attack in a new...

UBER-DEAD:  Chicagoland Uber driver meets Jesus & family sues Walmart, not Uber
