Wednesday afternoon's shooting comes on the heels of a particularly violent weekend in the city. Between Friday night and early Monday morning, 36 people were shot in Chicago, nine fatally, and two people were stabbed.

That’s life in a Sanctuary City for you.
So begins the 2008 Rice Riots.
For those of you unfamiliar with Chicago, the map fairly accurately shows where not to look for a good restaurant.
who’s chickens are coming home to roost now, Jeremiah?
Saw this on Fox tonight. They mentioned the shootings were on the south side. They didn’t have to waste their breath with that factoid. It’s pretty much expected.
Well, I would say that Baghdad is a bit safer than that!
Is “Murder Incorporated” back in business?
Sure looks like the gang violence I saw when I lived in Tampa: a gang north of an interstate vs. a gang to the south. This distribution sure looks like turf war.
Crime is up in Chicago because Obama had to leave Illinois to campaign in the Presidential race. It’s like Superman leaving Metropolis to go battle that bald guy in that crystal ice funky far away place.
Old Man Daley and his old style cops wouldn’t let that happen or if it had would clean out the vipers nest fast.
is this brown on black like in LA? or over drugs?
Yea, I read that on another site.
Gotta ask.. what is the deal with all the shootings in the legs?? Is that some sort of a gang thing or do they just have sucky aim?? ;)
Anyway, all those shootings are really awful.
Most of these shootings are gang related, fighting over turf to secure drug dealing. With over 50,000 gang bangers in the city of Chicago and only 14,000 cops (some of whom are desk jockeys and other assorted non-patrol cops), this isn’t a surprise. By the way, handguns are illegal in Chicago and have been for over 20 years.....hmmm I wonder what they’re shooting each other with?
But, but... They have such strict gun control laws. HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN!!!!
I was balled out by a black bus driver for not getting off his bus in the neighborhood were most of these shootings took place. He thought I was being prejudiced.
A month ago I was coming from visiting someone at the County Jail and was taking the bus to an el station, but was reading and missed my stop.
The driver said that another two miles down there was another el line that I could get on. When we pulled up, it was very dark, two of the corners were vacant lots, some of the buildings were bordered up, and the few people I did see were black, and I am a white and unfamiliar with the neighborhood.
The black driver assured me that I’d be safe, but I just couldn’t exit the bus, and he was very hurt and scolded me so all the other passengers - all black - could hear. I finally convinced him to let me ride with him to the end of the line and then back to my original stop.
I’m wondering how many of these people, both victims and shooters, are minorities?????
I know it isn’t a PC question but I’d make some heavy bets that most are black..
Stock up, and be ready.
How many American’s have we lost in Iraq in April?
I think its time to withdraw from Chicago!
Half these shooting are on the West side, which is at least as bad.
Well the south side of chicago
Is the baddest part of town
And if you go down there
You better just beware

I have a couple thousand rounds...all my earthquake food, oh yeah, and 10 lbs of rice.
Can anyone create a google map like this? If so, how do you do so?
All black and mexican neighborhoods.
WANNA KNOW HOW SAFE YOU ARE?
In Chicago metro area we’re famous for living in a segregated way, so this violence is rarely near the middle class.
It makes for a safe downtown and other fun areas if you simply don’t go South or West, or, if you do go South, stay along the lake up to Hyde Park.
Anybody see the report from Elizabeth street. A 20 year old was sh*t in the abdomen.
It's usually mostly black, but a lot of Hispanic too.
Things never change in Chicago, apparently. I was born and raised there - moved away in early 1969. The South side was always the “bad” part of town. People who weren’t looking for trouble knew to stay away from there. I’m saddened to see that some of the West side neighborhoods where I lived in the mid-40’s to mid-50’s have succumbed to these violent populations.
Its this thing that gangbangers have where they think its cool to hold the pistol sideways, one-handed. What it means is that they can't hit jack with it. That they ever hit anything intentionally is merely by loading up the air with lead.
A reasonably competent shooter in a Weaver stance has an automatic advantage over one of those guys. His (or her) double-tap will probably find its mark before the gangbanger does.
The baddest dude on the South Side.
Just another story in the long WAR ON Drugs(TM). Time to demand an exit strategy for this war.
I assume that’s a gag website, right? I doesn’t match the sex offender registry site at all.
You’re ok going west out to Greektown (from the Loop). But for God’s sake, don’t get drunk and decide to walk back to your hotel at 3AM. The boaters are bringing their boats up the river out of winter storage and we don’t want some little kid finding your body.
here’s a map to abortion clinics in chicago...
betcha more than 30 people died there this week...
Blacks are murdered 6 times more often than whites and do the murdering 7 times more often. (Taken from 2005 stats from the US Bureau of Justice, http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/bjs/homicide/race.htm
Bitter people clinging to their guns and Reverend Wright?
What I heard about the one-handed stance with the pistol is not because it’s cool, but because if you’re in a gunfight there’s no cover around, turning sideways makes your body a smaller target and therefore harder to hit, but of course it’s harder to hit the other guy that way too, so the entire thing turns into lots of shooting at each other and hitting pretty much everything in range.
