The people of Mexico are taking back their lives. They gave the government a huge chance, and when they did nothing, the people have. Thugs are just bullies, they work best when the victims are afraid. The Mexican people might still be afraid but are willing now to not be victims. They will hunt the thugs down, convict them, and hang them!

Dear Mr. Obama,

This week Hadiya Pendleton was shot and murdered in Chicago just days after performing with high school marching band at your second inauguration.

She was a majorette in addition to playing volleyball and being an honor student at King College Prep High School.

My plea to you is you attend her funeral.

My plea is that after the funeral you address the entire nation in prime time and discuss an epidemic that's eroding our nation and destroying millions of dreams.

That is the real epidemic of violence in black communities

There is no better example than your hometown of Chicago or Chi-Raq as many locals have begun to call...
