Six shot, one dead in Bobby "Hoodie" Rush's district tonight

Yesterday Rep. Bobby Rush (D-IL) donned a hoodie as he spoke on the floor of Congress yesterday, to draw attention to the Trayvon Martin case. But about an hour ago inside a store six people were shot on the 1400 block of West 79th Street on Chicago's South Side-which is in Rush's district.

One of the victims is dead. This section of the South Side is predominantly African-American.

Will Rush, a former Black Panther, express outrage over this tragedy?

Oh, where was his outrage during St. Patrick's Day weekend when 10 Chicagoans were murdered, including 10 year-old Aliyah Shell?

By the way, ten miles north of where tonight's shooting occurred, Vice President Joe Biden was the star attraction at an Obama-Biden fundraiser.

UPDATE 8:10pm CDT: The Chicago Tribune has more details. Four of the wounded in tonight's shooting are in critical condition, the ages of the victims range from 16 to 25.

UPDATE 10:00pm CDT: The Trib expanded their story--and get this, the scumbag shooters were wearing hooded sweatshirts.

UPDATE March 30 7:45am: It was a violent night in Chicago. Within four hours, 13 Chicagoans were shot, two of the victims are dead. Oh, the part in the Tribune about the hooded sweatshirts is here now.

Letting a Black Panther into Congress is no different than letting in KKKers like Byrd. Hypocrites and racists.

It's Ok, it's what they do. They can't help killing each other. But if a White Devil kills a black man, it's time to loot and pillage your own neighborhood(they call it rioting...),and then whine about how run down your 'hood is.

No Peace, No Justice.

I'd like to know if Jackson or Sharpton were down in Mississippi at know where the white student was murdered by the three black guys. Nah, didn't think so. His rainbow coalition really aint a rainbow.

Hey, Spike, why don't you twitter the address of these two "hood"lums' daddies? Isn't that the real problem that no one wants to talk about? The black community will never confront the problem of their children being raised by gangs. They only want to see the scapegoat of racism.

Go ahead and keep killing each other!!!! Never here the “Black Pussy Cats” step up and say “stop the black on black Killings” They are just trying to create hate in our society. If you act like an animal then you will be treated like one. Young black men feel they have to always prove themselves as tough and not going to take any sh_t from anyone attitude. Maybe if parents show us good examples we would not be discussing this issue. As my father always said “you are a reflection of your mother and me”. So why are we surprised when this happens. It starts with the adult role models if they are not setting good examples them how can they expect their children to be any different.
