    Daley: Parents have to know where their kids are

    Daley: Parents have to know where their kids are

    April 21, 2008

    BY FRAN SPIELMAN City Hall Reporter

    It’s not often that a Chicago mayor is reduced to reading the police blotter. But, that’s what it came down to for Mayor Daley today after a weekend bloodbath that turned 13 Chicago Public School students into shooting victims.

    One-by-one, Daley ticked off the ages of the young victims and the time and circumstances surrounding the shootings that left them injured.

    Some were walking down the street with friends in broad daylight. Others were leaving a party, standing on a sidewalk outside their homes or in the process of entering their homes. One had come to the aid of a family member involved in a domestic battery.

    Daley has tried rolling back curfew by 30 minutes -- to 10 p.m. on weekdays and 11 p.m. on weekends -- in a desperate attempt to stop the bloodshed. But, he knows that curfew is only as good as the parents who enforce it.

    “What we’re asking people to do is know where their children are, No. 1. Children are important and these are all children. These are 15-, 16-, 16-, 14-, 17-, 16-, 16-, 17-, 13- and 12-year-olds … Parents have to know where they are at all times,

    Don't just put this off on single mothers, there are also absent fathers.

    Dr. Spock did America a great diservice. People should have listened to the Bible instead. "Spare the rod and spoil the child". They should be spanking them at school too.

    Eliminate sanctuary cities and bring back respect for the law.

    "In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin.
    But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all.
    We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
