Default More than 30 people shot in Chicago this weekend

Well the weekends are for shootings in in and around the hoods of Chi-Town. Not that each day/night isn't without a few guns going off.

More than 30 people shot in Chicago this weekend

Elyssa Cherney, Elvia Malagon, CHICAGO TRIBUNE (TNS) Monday, August 28, 2017



CHICAGO ó Violence in Chicago over the weekend dropped sharply from a week before, but there were still 32 people shot in the city, six of them fatally, including a 16-year-old boy.

The previous weekend, at least 63 people were shot and eight of them were killed, according to police. It was the most violent weekend of the year except for the long Fourth of July holiday.

So far this year, at least 2,498 people have been shot in Chicago. Thatís down from 2,821 this time last year, when violence hit levels not seen in two decades. There have been at least 462 homicides this year, 29 fewer than this time last year.

The youngest victim from this past weekendís violence was 16-year-old Theotis Luckett, who was shot in the back just before 3:50 a.m. Saturday in the East Garfield Park neighborhood on the West Side, police said.

The media and the Democrats are gonna leave this simmering on the back burner until the 2018 elections. Then they'll demand President Trump's explanation as to why he hasn't done anything about it.

Meanwhile Chicago's children die. Mayor Emmanuel will skate.

2500 is 10 a day. In a town where guns are effectively eliminated.

It's gonna be a tough sell. Democrats have been in charge for decades.
Then there's that current mayor.

Gee given me credit for writing the news. jimbo Now what should my reply be?

Oh you read the news story, great. Just ing

So I guess any place where guns have supposed to have been eliminated. There might be a chance street sales of stolen hand guns as well as longer weapons might be a thriving business...

You just don't have the balls for it.

As for me, I live in St Louis where we do have the issue. I voted for a guy who has done something about it.
