Obama’s hometown resembled a warzone this weekend with black and Latino gangbangers slaughtering nine people and wounding 40. The youngest person wounded is only one year old.
Most of the fatalities appear to be random people gunned down by thugs. Pedestrians and motorists were sprayed with gunfire all over the city.
Among the dead is a six year old girl who was killed in a drive by shooting. The suspects are two teenage Latino thugs who are members of the “Latin Kings” drug gang.
