16 shot? I’m guessing they weren’t Afghanis shot by an American soldier or this would be getting international headlines.

Well, we know that they have the best damn mayor the world could ever ask for so we know that these concerns aren't because of how the city is run.

It must be some of that Governor Walker debacle spilling over the border don't you think?

Chicago is one of the most crime-ridden cities in the U.S., plus, one of the most corrupt. How could people elect a man from there to the presidency? Ignorant Americans.

As someone who grew-up in the northwest suburbs - Arlington Heights/Mt Prospect - in the 50s & 60s, I can say that this isn’t unusual for that city. It’s just more widely-reported than it used to be. It used to be pretty much confined to the South Side; now it’s all over the place. Glad our family left in ‘67.

No protest, just the formal greeting of Spring in Chicago.

How many people are murdered, raped, robbed in the rest of the state because of Chicagoland?

Chicago, not Springfield controls the system that makes the laws that hinder honest Illinois citizens from protecting themselves statewide.

I thought Chicago was going to bring in the National Guard to quell the killings? Whatever happened to that?

How is it that -- from the title alone -- I knew the dateline was going to be Chicago -- the home of America's last holdout total gun ban?

Idiot libs! After being wrong 49 of 50 times, they still insist on "gun control"... Dumb@$$3$!!

Two state reps proposed that in the Spring of 2010. My guess is that it was, excuse the pun, shot down.

What do you call 16 shot in Chicago in one night?

A slow night.
