More than 20 shot overnight across Chicago
Chicago Tribune ^ | 7-5-2014 | Peter Nickeas

Posted on 07/05/2014 8:27:19 AM PDT by Citizen Zed

Chicago was hit with a burst of gun violence on the Fourth of July, with at least 21 people shot during an 11-hour stretch from Friday evening into Saturday morning, according to police.

That brings to 36 the number of people who have been shot in the city since the long holiday weekend began Thursday afternoon, when two women were hit by gunfire as they sat on a porch just a block from Garfield Park on the West Side.

The holiday shootings have stretched across the city but have been concentrated in the South and West sides. The Englewood and Harrison districts have both seen a handful of people shot over the last two days, and there have been shootings as far south as the Altgeld Gardens neighborhood at the edge of the city to the Rogers Park neighborhood bordering Evanston.

Three of those wounded were shot by police officers in Portage Park, Rogers Park and Englewood. The man shot in Portage Park, around 9:50 p.m., died.

When they call a neighborhood a garden or a park, it sounds so beautiful.

Fifty year ago, before the Leftist revolution, they probably were.

i lived in Chicago. We were broken into 3 times and my wife was robbed in the local grocery story parking lot. NO ONE HELPED. It was in Hyde Park on the south side.

I left for safer living.

Don’t-cha just love gun free zones? It’s only Saturday so there’s still time for more “innocent” victims to be added. Someone from my HS class suggested chit-cago for a re-union. Uh, NO! I went to NTC Great Lakes in the late 60’s and we went to chit-cago for our first liberty. It sucked then. Next time we went to Milwaukee. Of course Milwaukee today isn’t much better from what I hear.

How’s that gun ban in chicago working out for them?

Maybe they should take some pointers from Detroit, where the police chief told all of the residents to arm themselves to the teeth. I heard that IS working out quite well for them, for the residents, and the police that is.

I meant to say, it’s the future if the people keep putting the left in leadership and on the SC.

But the GOP seems spineless. Except when they attack the Tea Party.

(article):" That brings to 36 the number of people who have been shot in the city since the long holiday weekend began Thursday afternoon .."

And how many of those shootings are related to the Sinola cartel operating in Chicago
Let me see : open borders , drug mules , disease and pestilence, TB, scabies
We were not a country of financial ,medical and social diseases until Hussein turned us into a "Third World Country" through "Hopey-changey "

Yeah. It’s all so predictable.

But a lot of average folks, or some percentage of them, think the job market is fine, housing has “recovered” and the stock market is on a never-ending journey.

Because the MSM keeps reinforcing the lies.

i fail to understand why more shooting occur on the weekend since these things don't work to begin with so what makes the weekend special when they do the same thing on Saturday night as on Wednesday night?

or is it simply many of the victims are the ones with a job and are out more on the weekend???
