Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel says he will not resign in wake of shooting probe

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2015/12/02/chicago-mayor-rahm-emanuel-says-he-not-resign-after-botched-shooting-probe/76660326/

===========================================================

Protesters getting a taste of "power" have been able to get college presidents to resign, and recently the police chief in Chicago ( a city full of crooks/criminals)... 

But apparently they can't get their "D" buddy to resign his position of power.


Why should he?

He is only in charge.

I found it appalling what is happening in the City of Chicago -    Can't imagine why it's not making national media... well it's starting to - just real slow...

Can't make D policies look too bad during an election year can you?

The PC police are in California - and it will be a cold day in Hell when Obama allows the FBI to declare this a terrorist attack...  even though 3 shooters were involved,  they are sweeping for explosives, they found explosives...   
There appeared to be planning and calm/control during the event by the attackers. 
They were "found" by a FBI tip...   

Yet none of that adds up to terrorism so far...     I guess 14 dead isn't terror anymore?

I heard on the news this morning one of the people left earlier in the day mad - and came back shooting.

Sounds like this is just workplace violence - and we need gun control is the solution.

Typical Media.

Clearly a case of white male christian NRA member Republican Voter Rage.

The mainstream media should be called the 'selective media'.  They only acknowledge what they want to.....IOW, totally biased.

Sure glad they didn't find these people armed to the teeth, in body armor, with explosives then! 
Story fits much better when you say workplace violence

LA times has the best updates so far:

A loner goes to Saudi Arabia and brings back a woman -   they have a child -  then they decide to bring terror to the US and make pipe bombs along the way... 

Yep your routine workplace violence  8*

==========================================================
The suspects in the shooting rampage were a married couple who had just dropped off their 6-month-old daughter with her grandmother, family representatives said.

Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, and Tashfeen Malik, 27, were married two years ago, according to Malik’s brother, Farhan Khan, shown above.

On Wednesday morning, Farook and his wife dropped their daughter off with Farook’s mother in Redlands, saying they had a doctor’s appointment, said Hussam Ayloush, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ Los Angeles office.



Authorities have only recently begun to process the scene at the Inland Regional Center after three devices, which police believe were explosives, were destroyed, said San Bernardino police Chief Jarrod Burguan.

The chief said investigators are not sure what the devices were made of, but that they are "leaning a little bit more toward a pipe bomb-type design."

Bomb squad officers disposed of three devices a couple of hours ago, Burguan said in a news conference late Wednesday.

"We believe that those were explosive devices," Burguan said.

They said Farook had recently traveled to Saudi Arabia and returned with a woman he'd met online. The couple had a baby and appeared to be “living the American dream,” said Patrick Baccari, a fellow inspector who shared a cubicle with Farook.

Baccari and Christian Nwadike said Farook, who had worked with them for about three years, rarely started a conversation. But he was well-liked.

They and other colleagues said Farook was a devout Muslim who rarely discussed religion at work.

He is only in charge.

I can't help commenting about Emanuel, He's nothing but a terrorist himself.  A little weasel.

Like the way he quashed the killing by the police officer until after his election.  Smart move on his part, honest, no way but what is (honest) in the murder capital.....

The more I read and hear, the sicker I get and Obama wants to import more Syrians.  It's coming (violence / terrorism to a place near you...;   count on it.  Obama is.

Trump is right on with the solution as bad as it sounds.  No more immigration from the Middle East, close and or monitor all Mosques and carefully scrutinize all muslims living here.....  including Obama.

This shitte is getting more stupid by the day.

I’m thinking thank God the senate passed a bill to repeal Obamacare and how happy I am that us republicans have control of congress to concentrate on the most important issues facing America today. 

And why didn’t somebody warn us that is we raised taxes on the rich and expanded health insurance to cover millions more people that the economy would grow and the unemployment rate go down?

the unemployment rate only went down in the numbers obamas socialists have published.
And yes, congress should get in step with the President and address our biggest problem, Climate Change.

Climate change can only be properly addressed when all the major players agree.  That's not happening and won't in the foreseeable future until mealy mouthed politicians grow some pubic hair.... ;D
