At least four people were killed and 26 wounded in a 16-hour wave of shootings on Chicago's South, West and Southwest sides starting Friday afternoon, according to police.

In less than 14 hours starting about 1:20 p.m. Friday, the number of people shot in the city climbed past half the number shot the entire previous weekend, the city's most violent of the year to date.

Hmmm. Sounds like George Zimmerman was out on the prowl again, eh? And where is the outrage from the “defenders” of the victims???

As usual no mention of the race of any of the victims or the shooters, but of course we can hazard a guess of which ethnic group was primarily responsible.

There is nothing short of martial law in that area that will achieve anything.

They send 200 storm troopers to round up cows in Nevada, but there is a genuine range war going on in South Chicago that everyone wants to pretend isn’t happening.

As long as black people are murdering black people by the dozens in one town every week, it is not a big deal. But if one of these black kids had been killed by a white guy, then Eric Holder and the race pimps would be all over this like Black on night.

Everyone is pointing towards Granny Warren giving Hildabeast a run for her money in 2016. Me thinks the Marxist Emmanuel has thoughts as well.

This is Rahm enabling gangs for cash, and to make a “crisis” to exploit by “solving” this “problem” by enacting gun control nationally.

This may be tied in with the new Heroin Super Pipeline that is pumping cheap strong smack into the USA. Who is running that pipeline? That’s where the cash ends up, and the gangs do distribution.

There is no shortage of Marxist leaning candidates available to the Dems. It is the plethora of Marxist leaning candidates that seem to be circling around the RNC that worries me. At the present rate RINOs will be considered to be 'right of center' in American politics.

Ever single CCW class in the suburbs of Chicago is booked solid for the next 3 months. This is why. At the local range I use there were 30 regular people, including quite a few young women and suburban soccer mom types. And that was just the shooting qualification one night last week. They are doing 2 per week.

They are doing three classes a week. An NRA Basic Pistol class is part of the requirements. There are so many enrollees they are booking hotel conference rooms and running 75 people at a time through, 3-4 weekend days a month. You can do the math.

And this is just at ONE range in the western suburbs. Folks around here are fed up.

But look on the bright side: the east side of Chicago was spared from this recent crime wave. :)

As long as the shootings took place in the alleys it’s ok. The mayor said so.

Dollars to donuts, I bet the local news works in the angle that “warmer weather” is a factor in the ramped-up body count.

They do it every year, with a straight face, on the news in NYS, Philly, Cleveland, etc.

Which I guess explains why Beverly Hills, Singapore, and Tokyo also have so many killings....../s

If Tea Party members had killed 'four people and wounded 26 in a 16-hour wave of shootings' the Department of Homeland Security would be adding another 3,000 goons to their payroll. And the New York Times would be writing about it for years...

Odd how it doesn't matter when it's a bunch of black democrats doing the killing...

Of course, the east side of Chicago would be Lake Michigan. Apparently there are no boaters out there killing each other.......

Yes, the local news almost always mentions the warmer weather and sometimes the police do too.

The band that did the song, “The Night Chicago Died” was taken to task for referring to the “old east side.” But there actually is a neighborhood on the far southern tip of Chicago known as the Eastside, so called because it is on the east side of Calumet Harbor. Crime there hasn’t been quite as bad there as in other places, but it is starting to pick up. It has always had a reputation as kind of a tough area: the mob used to dump bodies there, Loeb and Leopold disposed of Bobby Franks there, etc.

Hillary needs at least one on the Far Laft (Rahm or Sanders), and whoever GOPe puts up will be played as a Far Right TEA Party Extremist so Hillary can triangulate toward the reasonable, rational center.

I know that, but I always want to make the East side comment whenever I hear people from Chicago talk about the city. Incidentally, I was born in Illinois but left when I was 6 months old. Even at that young age I’d seen enough, lol.
