But the First Family is in town celebrating with friends and family. Interleague baseball has the Red Sox-Cubs baseball on FOX and ESPN this weekend. Bike rides along Lake Michigan.

This hostility must be due to budget cuts to libraries.

Sounds like a slow night by summertime Chicago standards.

That swarm of LEOs in for the ValJ shindig probably slowed things a bit.

I’m betting they can get back up to the trendline with a good Saturday night next week.

If nazel gazing were an Olympic sport the clueless white liberals of the Trib could easily garner the gold.

There's nothing wrong with Chicago that 7 megatons would not fix.

How does this compare with the previous two or three weekends? Did reassigning the police for the Jarrett wedding make a difference?

Never happened. Chicago has strict gun control laws.Ask any Leftist,whenever there is a problem, a law against said problem solves the problem.

Thanks. Looks like 3 dead last Saturday, but the site doesn’t list shooting victims who didn’t die.

According to the police blogs, there were 6 murders and 33 shootings on the weekend. Saturday night alone there were 4 murders and 21 shootings. Puerto Rican Fest was going on, but luckily the rain came just as it was ending and that helped keep down the violence.

Yes, how can there be any gun violence in Chicago?

Oh, yes, I get it...only the evil, hoodie types have guns...it is only the law abiding citizens who are not allowed... *after all, Obama lookes after his ‘sons’...

George Zimmerman's fault!
George Bush's fault!
In this case, maybe George Washington's fault!

Sadly a similar headline in today’s Tribune:

Liberal elites don’t care about black deaths UNLESS those deaths can be used politically against conservatives. Ask any ‘white hispanic’ as the New York Times would squeeze out of their hole...
