Valerie Jarrett touted Obama's record on youth violence in Chicago. I would like to know what specifically did Barack Obama do while either a senator or as President to curtail and turn around the crime in Chicago that actually produced positive results?
Hmmmm... Let's see,
Chicagomag.com informs us that the number of youths hit by gunfire increased from last year. There seems to be a spike in youth violence.
So, Obama is being praised for 'action' even though the results are worse than the year before? Gee... That's liberal pretzel logic for ya.
Here are Valerie Jarrett's words of praise:
Ben Shapiro from Breitbart.com asks a pertinent question: So, how many students have been murdered in Chicago since Darrion Albert was murdered in September 2009, and since President Obama “took action”?
And the answer is.... "In 2010, there were 68 murder victims in Chicago between the ages of 13 and 18. Nearly 700 kids were hit by gunfire."
Ben continued noting that "There was an 11 percent rise in youth murders in 2010. Since 2008, over 530 people under age 21 have been murdered, and 286 of those were under the age of 18."
While Obama and his cronies have focused on the Trayvon Martin case, stoking the flames of racial tension, and stirring the pot with race-baiting words Obama has ignored other fatal shootings.
Bill O' Reilly sent Jesse Waters out to investigate the violence in Chicago.
O' Reilly reported "So far this year 109 people have been murdered in that city. That's up 56 percent over last year. Much of the violence is gang- generated minority-involved."
