Posted on 09/22/2013 8:34:51 PM PDT by Zakeet
At least 24 people have been shot, five of them fatally, in Chicago since Friday, police said.
The weekend violence began just one day after 13 people were injured in a Chicago park.
The victims from Thursday's shooting included 10 males and three females, including 3-year-old Deonta Howard -- known as "Tay-man" -- who was shot in the jaw and listed in critical condition.
Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said an assault style rifle with a high capacity magazine was used in the park shooting.
McCarthy added that based on witness interviews, the attack appears to be gang-related, as several of the victims are gang members. It is still unclear whether more than one person opened fire, he said.

Rhambozo needs to hurry up and pass some more laws to protect this libtard paradise from them evil guns.
Sounds like a total breakdown.
LBJ’s disastrous “Great Society” programs are yielding their bitter fruit.
Wait a second, I thought the liberal utopia Chicago was the safest place in the world because of their gun control laws. Is that not true? Shocker!
Since Thursday that makes 32 shot and 5 killed.
The police in Chicago are no longer relevant in any meaningful sense of the word.
The Kenyan military needs to storm the mall and just kill all the terrorists. To many people have died already.
....wait I misread the headline, this is about Chicago. My bad
After reading the whole article I think we should “obsess ourselves with passing more gun control.”
You can always count on loudly self-proclaimed “liberals” and “progressives” to keep pushing obviously failed policies instead of looking at problems, devising realistic solutions, trying them, and implementing them.
Must be white nazi hispanics killing black folk again.
Obama and his pals helped to build that.
It wouldn’t even make sense for Islamic terrorists to launch an attack in Chicago involving a large-scale shooting in a public place. It wouldn’t get any headlines because everyone would just assume that it’s a normal day in Chicago.
The only reason Chicago gun laws haven’t slowed the carnage is that other places don’t have strict gun laws and their people import those guns into Chicago. /s
I thought that solution by the Chicago police chief about sending letters’ to criminals was working?
Would the last person alive in Chicago please turn out the lights?
I agree with your first thought. Chicago needs the Kenyan military to storm it and settle things for once and all.
i’m hoping we can pass some type of gun control, then, that young man who used the ak will then turn his in at the police station.
Yep. It is only a matter of time until these stores of 10+ people shot in a day in common. By that point the Police will be so backlogged all they will have time to do is take some pictures and move on.
“an assault style rifle with a high capacity magazine was used”
Sure it was. Other reports say that more than one shooter fired the 20 shots, so it could have been 5 round mags.
Dance in the blood! Pure propaganda.
Gang warfare is now completely out in the open. In time this will all feel like a civil war.
It’s a quagmire. We should withdraw.
Hey Al! Jesse!! Where are you worthless pieces of $$hit!!!
Gee, I thought they were a gun free zone? Hmmm, why did Oprah decide to move from there and on and on and on?
Best thing they can do is bring in the National Guard and I mean bring them in fully armed, not as targets without ammo.
These shootings do not happen in a vaccum, the perps and victims have history ... Bet on it.
But what do you think the annual body count will be this year?
“Tay-man”?? Who gives their 3-year old a gangster-type nickname?
The problems here are in the families and in the neighborhoods. It’s not about the legality of firearms.
So long as the media and various governments ignore black terrorism, it will continue. A serious nation would not pretend the problem doesn’t exist.
I’m not sure but if anyone is interested go to wired .com they have a detailed article on the gangs of Chicago. It seems there is no leadership to impose order. There’s a shocking 70,000 gang members in small loosely affiliated groups. Most under 20 who taunt each other on social media. Why Chicago and not NYC or LA is not sure.
Good chance there is gang crap: turf wars, drug crap, somebody dissed somebody, or somesuch going on. Either that or Rahm is beaming microwaves at the hood.
Also I live here what’s weird is its mostly the same gang...the Gangster Disciples all shooting each other.
Sure, Rahm is stupid enough to say that.
But do we care enough?
police scanner for Chicago police. Fun to listen to while surfing free republic.
I have a feeling that at this rate, by next spring Chicago will be a in full civil war mode. The coming cold weather will most likely keep the violence down somewhat.
Haven’t done that in a while. Currently busy with the 96 hour South Park marathon they are streaming.
In the old days (pre-Capone) there were leadership squabbles within the mob. They were a mite more sanitary about settling their differences (less collateral damage). They were criminals, yes, but not so much terrorists like the current crop.
Detroit redux. The breakdown of a once great city. Lock and load because it’s playing out everywhere.
I listen to Chicago Police calls nightly...very absorbing.
Put a fence around the entire area and let Alah sort it out.
