Gun violence kills 5, wounds 16 since Friday night
Chicago Sun-Times ^ | 15 Jul 20134

Posted on 07/15/2013 11:28:47 AM PDT by mandaladon

Five people were killed and at least 16 other people -- including four teenagers and a 72-year-old woman -- were wounded in shootings across the city since Friday night.

The most recent fatal shooting occurred late Sunday in the Lawndale neighborhood, when 35-year-old Ernest J. Carter and a woman were sitting in a car parked in the 4000 block of West Cullerton Street, authorities said.

About 11 p.m., two gunmen approached the pair on foot, opening fire into the car from behind, police said.

Both were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital with gunshot wounds to the back. Carter, of the 4000 block of West 21st Street, was struck multiple times and died at Mount Sinai Hospital at 11:45 p.m., the medical examiner’s office said. The woman, 37, was in serious condition, police said.

Earlier Sunday afternoon a man was found dead from a gunshot wound to the head in the 1600 block of West Jonquil Terrace in the Rogers Park neighborhood, police said. The body of 22-year-old Blake Lamb was found about 3:45 p.m.

Lamb, of the 7600 block of North Bosworth Avenue, had been shot multiple times.

About an hour earlier on the South Side, a teen boy died after he was shot in the back in the South Deering neighborhood about 2:50 p.m., police said.

Who cares. It only gets a headline if the shooter is white... If Jesse Jackson and Revrund Al don’t care about the pandemic of dead black kids in Chicago, I’ll be damned if I will.

Not for nothing, but I’m getting sick of the term “gun violence”. When people get killed in M/V accidents do we call it “Car Violence” or if someone’s clubbed to death, “Bat Violence”? It’s violence, period.

Misleading headline correction:

SAVAGES SPAWNED FROM A VIOLENCE PRONE AND TOLERANT POPULATION OF LARGELY NO DISCIPLINE, FATHERLESS FAMILIES use guns to kill 5 and wound 16 since Friday night.

In third world hellholes, they use machetes and the victims are just as dead only more painfully so.

There, that's much more accurate.

I majored in journalism in college, earning a B.S. and M.S.in the university. Although my career path was on the advertising side, I have always taken an interest in watching the news-editorial side of the industry.

This headline is instructive: it mentions 'gun-violence' and buried deep in the story is a sentence that identifies at least one of the shootings as gang-related.

The unapologetic bias in the news business is a genuine tragedy. In my college years, the kids who majored in the news-editorial sequence used to look down their noses at us who were more interested in the commercial side, thinking their motives of 'reporting the truth' were pure as the driven snow.

This is exactly the reason that guns should outlawed in the city of Chicago. This would not happen if guns were illegal.... ....Wait.

Never mind.

I’ve hired and worked with a lot of journalist majors over the years, and I agree that it is really hard to find anyone more sanctimonious and more self-righteous than a journalist major.

It’s kind of nice to see that for every time I post a job listing that requires contains considerable writing, I’ll usually get over a thousand applicants from journalist majors that have essentially been flipping burgers since graduating.

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Absolutely, I used to own a couple of guns but they got liquored up one day and went tearin’ down the road shootin’ everthang in sight, lucky they didn’t hit no people, they wound up in the river and drowned so I just left ‘em there, don’t want no more guns, no sir, can’t trust ‘em. If anybody wants to rob me or kill me or sumpin I’ll just tell ‘em they got to make an appointment a day ahead so I can try to get a deputy here to deal with ‘em. Anybody that really wants to commit a crime shouldn’t object to makin’ an appointment, should they?

That Chicago City Morgue must be one busy place...

Allegedly, depending on the victims, autopsies can take some time for homicides, which delays investigations. Cases are prioritized based on case circumstances. Gang on gang Vs. Gang on child Vs. Child victim Vs. Upper Class homicide.... they triage the cases when the bodies come in.

...according to a retired detective from the area.

I thought it was the 45ACP that the shock would kill you even if hit in the pinky. I know some here on FR seem to believe it.
Hell, maybe both the 45 and the assault weapon will. /sark

There were 1893 shootings in Chicago last year. In 94% of the cases the perp got away scot-free. There is no deterrent from the police or from within the “community”. It is a totally foreign culture that is hostile to our values and beliefs. It is dangerous.

Re “yet there is no protest and threats of riots”.

The reason why, re Sharpton and Jackson, there IS NO MONEY TO BE MADE BY EXTORTION OR STREET DONATIONS.

The biggest crime in Chicago is that Sharpton and Jackson are allowed to walk the streets there without being arrested for aiding and abetting violence, extortion, lying, and for being black racists (against other blacks, the innocent victims of black crime/criminals).

While on this rant/vein, Jackson was an adulterer. Yeah, Rev. really revved up his morality. Talk about hypocrisy to the nth.

He also started out his well-planned national rise to “prominence” with a lie, namely that he cradled the head of the dying Dr. King Jr. in his hands.

He lied the other day at the Zimmerman trial when he said that Zimmerman murdered Martin in cold blood. I hope he gets his lying ass sued off.

Sharpton. He started off his national rise to media prominence with a lie - TAWANA BRAWLEY HOAX, libel, inciting to riot, and then went on to extortion, aiding & abetting the killin of Yankel Rosenblatt, the burning out of a Korean grocer from his business, and then lying the other day about the Martin-Zimmerman tragedy.

Another lefty, self-promoting fraud is Ralph Nader, who started off his media rise with the provenly false claims about the road stability of the Corvair car (which I have driven).

Notice that it was the liberal/left media who gave these clowns the publicity to promote themselves, their organizations, and their causes (be they righteous ones or not).

Now, if you or I tried this crap, we’d be in jail on various criminal charges and then nobody would give us free and extensive media coverage.

Talk about a corrupt media with a total lack of journalistic standards for the leftist/liberals, and a nearly total lack of enforcement of whatever standards do exist.

The rise of Sharpton, Jackson and Nader was a collective media effort to promote charlatans, and it succeeded. This is the shame of America and part of the undermining/undoing of American society.
