6 killed, 28 wounded in Chicago weekend shootings

Carro

Just as Chicago's new mayor is laying blame at the feet of Republicans for her city's awful gun violence, we learn that just this past weekend, 28 had been wounded and 6 killed in shootings.

One, a 17-year old girl who was shot 3 times in then head and a couple more times in the torso, just to make damn sure she was dead, I suppose.


Where are the cries of sorrow for Chicago's dead? Where are the calls to end gun violence when another typical weekend of total carnage ravages the inner city? Do you have to be dead from a white, male, mass shooter to make it onto the MSM's radar?

Black lives matter, right?


6 killed, 28 wounded in Chicago weekend shootings


At least 34 people were shot — six of them fatally — over the weekend in gun violence across Chicago, including a 17-year-old girl who was killed Sunday in Back of the Yards on the South Side.

She was walking about 9:30 p.m. in the 900 block of West 52nd Street, when a man emerged from an alley and the two of them got into “a verbal altercation,” Chicago police said. The man then pulled out a handgun and shot her three times in the head and multiple times in the upper body.

The teen was pronounced dead at the University of Chicago Medical Center, police said.

The weekend’s latest fatal shooting happened Monday in South Shore.

A 32-year-old man was driving about 3:10 a.m. in the 7500 block of South Coles Avenue when someone unleashed gunfire, police said. The man was struck in the head and crashed into a parked car.


He was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center where he was pronounced dead, police said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office hasn’t released details about his death.

On Sunday, a man was shot to death in Austin on the West Side.

Officers responded to a ShotSpotter alert about 11:15 p.m. in the 900 block of North Long Avenue and found the 49-year-old unresponsive, police said. He was found with multiple gunshot wounds to the head and one to the back.


He was rushed to West Suburban Medical Center where he was pronounced dead, police said.

A few hours earlier, a man was found dead with a gunshot wound on the Southwest Side.

About 7 p.m., officers found the body of a man in an alley in the 5400 block of South Lawndale Avenue, police said. The man thought to be between 40 and 50 years old was found with at least one gunshot wound to the neck.

Saturday, a man was killed and another wounded in a shooting in Little Village on the Southwest Side.

Albert Delgado, 43, and a 21-year-old man were traveling in a vehicle about 1:17 a.m. in the 2200 block of South Spaulding Avenue when someone on foot opened fire, police and the medical examiner’s office said.


Delgado was struck twice in the abdomen and was pronounced dead at Mount Sinai Hospital, authorities said. The 21-year-old was hit in the face and arm and was taken to the same hospital in critical condition.

Later that morning, a 48-year-old man was killed in a triple shooting in the same neighborhood.


Efren Gonzalez-Guerrero had just gotten into a vehicle with two other men about 6:15 a.m. in the 3900 block of West 31st Street when someone in another vehicle began shooting at them, police and the medical examiner’s office said.

Gonzalez-Guerrero was struck twice in the face and pronounced dead at Mount Sinai Hospital, authorities said. He lived in Archer Heights.

A 26-year-old man was shot five times in the chest and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in critical condition, police said. The third man, 38, was taken to the same hospital with two gunshot wounds to the chest. His condition was stabilized.

At least 25 others were wounded in shootings between 5 p.m. Friday and 5 a.m. Monday.

On Labor Day weekend, 43 people were shot, eight fatally.

Yep, those guns just jumped out of their gun safes and killed all those people, didn't they?

Had nothing to do with the no good murdering THUGS that pulled the triggers.

And yet Chicago's mayor spends times issuing threats on social media to not speak the name of Chicago. She's a real winner, that one.

Baltimore is competing for attention--SEVEN shootings, TWO fatalities this weekend.

More cities run by inept, ineffective democrats who refuse to acknowledge and address the crime problem and keep the citizens safe.

You get more of what you subsidize--these cities are perfect examples.

What about their gun laws, they have very strong anti gun laws there, right. More laws which effect legal owners is what they need.

You have a very short memory if you are blaming gun violence on a political party. With your logic in place the republicans should be responsible for the recent atrocities in Texas.

From the OP link:

My old neighborhood again! Remind me again why we moved away. Oh yeah, there's a poster here who derides me for taking part in what she calls "white flight" (in reality it was "violence flight"). Silly me. This one took place literally 4 blocks from our old house.

What is Trump doing about it? Here's one way:

******

[Trump's proposed 2020 budget] for the third year in a row, proposes to eliminate the 21st Century Community Learning Centers initiative, which funds local afterschool and summer learning programs in all 50 states and the U.S. territories. Elimination of these funds for local programswould devastate the 1.7 million children and families who stand to lose access to afterschool as a result.

The budget proposal is a stark contrast to the strong bipartisan support for afterschool displayed in Congress.

... The Trump administration’s budget proposal attempts to justify eliminating Community Learning Centers by claiming that doing so would reduce waste; it reiterates the erroneous claim that these programs lack strong evidence of their effectiveness, which was debunked last year. In fact, more than a decade of data and evaluations provide compelling evidence that Community Learning Centers afterschool programs yield positive outcomes for participating children in academics, behavior, school day attendance, and more.

The Myths and Truths About Chicago's Guns and Murder Rate

About
60 percent of illegal firearms seized and recovered by Chicago police
come from out of state. They're traced back to states with less
restrictive firearms regulations, with Indiana at the top of the list.

It has little to noting to do with laws, politics, or anything except the direction our society is moving in...


Pass a thousands more laws, and blame every political party... and murders will continue to happen for a variety of reasons... but no one wants to take a the few steps back it would take to see the bigger picture more clearly.


It's not rocket science.

Black people in Chicago are thugs as likely to kill you as look at you.

Democrats don't care that black people in Chicago are a huge threat to .... [life as we know it], much much more of a threat than white men, who are wrongly maligned as being a threat. Snap out of it, El Paso and Democrats!

There. Fixed it for you.
