At least 27 people have been shot, one of them fatally, in Chicago since Friday.

Police said the weekend’s sole fatality, as of Sunday morning, occurred just before 9 a.m. Saturday when a 42-year-old man was fatally shot in the head while riding his bike.

The shooting took place in the 3600 block of West Chicago Avenue. Police said the man was taken to Mount Sinai hospital with wounds to the head and right arm and was later pronounced dead.

Ten others were shot Saturday afternoon into Sunday morning.

Most recently, a 25-year-old man was shot in the back and buttocks in the Parkway Gardens neighborhood on the South Side.

The man suffered gunshot wounds to the back after being shot around 5 a.m. Sunday in the 6400 block of South King Drive and was listed in critical condition. Police did not have any further details surrounding the shooting and said the victim was being uncooperative.

I would like to know how many of this number were shot with legally obtained weapons by the person utilizing the weapon. I bet ZERO.

Typically when I’m riding my bike I worry about passing cars. They’re more dangerous than guns, you know.

“At least 27 people have been shot, one of them fatally”

Chicagoland needs some range time.

It would also be interesting to know how many of the shooters were feral black youth, how many were known gang members, how many had been in trouble with the law before, etc.

There are many interesting angles to these shootings which should be explored, such as the gang angles. But due to political correctness and fears of being called racist, we can’t speculate about such things.

How many of em look like they could have been Obama’s son?

We should name streets after each of them like Trayvon. Surely some of the murderers were White Hispanics?

They put Neil Young to shame. Now “Four Dead in Ohio” is eclipsed by “Twenty-Seven Shot in Chi-ca-go”. But this time, there is little national outrage or wringing of hands being done.

Funny thing, last night there was a 48 hours special on how they were getting control of the gangs and drugs! Like all things lefties do, it’s all for show.

Wanna talk racism?

The single largest group of violent crimes are blacks, but society tolerates this because it is mostly other blacks doing the victimizing. Where’s the outrage?

If this is a prime example of “Holder’s peoples” marksmanship then when they are released on their Zombie attacks against the producers then things should settle out with in a couple of weeks. It will be a hard couple of weeks but when it’s over . . . .

"The man suffered gunshot wounds to the back after being shot..'

I suppose it's difficult to suffer gunshot wounds before being shot...

We really need to ban shooting people and make it against a law.

Well, the blacks continue to vote for corrupt government to run their cities, so they implicitly accept the violence of other blacks against them.

As an extension of that, anyone who voted for Nobama has implicitly accepted bad healthcare, lawlessness, illegals carrying disease, etcetera.

Well, if you missed getting rid of them through abortion, then there are other ways to kill them off. The dependency state is a fine method.

“It would also be interesting to know how many of the shooters were feral black youth, how many were known gang members, how many had been in trouble with the law before, etc.”

These artilce almost never cover the aftermath of shootings, such as who did it and if the were caught, etc. as if life just goes on.

“At least 16 others have been shot in Chicago since Friday, including a teen who was shot just outside the Rainbow PUSH Coalition’s headquarters and just two blocks away from President Barack Obama’s Chicago home.”

Burried at the bottom of the article is this. The video report said the teen is a known gang member. Jesse Jackson was inside deliving the opening remarks of the Rainbow/PUSH convention calling for peace.

Ad a few more gun laws to the 20,000 or so they already have. When oh when will they put up more “gun free zone” signs? Maybe T-shirts with “I Am Unarmed - Please Do Not Shoot” - should be a big seller in Chi-Congo or Dirt-troit or ....
