Lots of people getting shot and due to better medical services, many are survivors, whereas not too many years ago they wouldn’t have made it.

the cops in Chicago can only solve 25% of the murders.

They probably don’t even bother with an investigation when the victim lives

Seems to me the police in Chicago will never be Nobel laureates if they could not figure out where she was shot! ;>0

Perhaps the 'journalist' might have used a better choice of words to get his message across.

What?? Didn’t the Chicago PD said they will send letters to pacify the shootings? Maybe they need a signature upon delivery as these shooters didn’t receive a notice.

Couldn’t the doctor just examine her?

Did Hussein call the parents of the victims to offer support? Will that hyphenated loon wear tampon earrings? Did the guy who was shot in the ass trademark his buttocks?

DAMN! Another weekend where they are not even trying.
Eight wounded and no fatalities. Pathetic.

How are they going to beat their record with piss poor performances like this?

I listened to the Chicago police scanner Friday night for a couple of hours and some of the accounts in the article sound familiar.

Also interesting was a red tow truck towing a BMW but running every red light and the BMW car alarm was going off.

“Friday night on the South Side, a man who had been shot wrestled the gun away from the man who shot him and shot him multiple times.”

Do they no longer teach grammar in school?

...’’refused to tell police where she was shot’’. I’ll go out on a limb here and say it was probably somewhere on her body since that’s pretty much the purpose of shooting someone. Has anyone ever told these ‘’journalists’’ what’’ coherent diction’’ means?

Must be a heat wave. There was a similar slowdown in mayhem during the past winter.
