At least 13 people have been shot in Chicago at the start of the long holiday weekend, including a woman killed as she sat on a porch near Garfield Park and a man slain in front of a hair salon on the South Side, police said.
The mother of the boy, Andrea Byes, said she is planning to move out of the two-flat where she lives with her children because of the violence, drug sales and loitering on the block.
"I'm not surprised something like this happened," said Byes, 40. "It was a matter of time. They're all over everywhere. . .These people are used to it. It's like an everyday normal thing, and it's sad that these children have to grow up thinking it's an everyday normal thing."

Why isn’t Rahm on the streets of South ChiTown every w/e night?
Probably because his private security force won’t let him go! /s;)
Indeed. His old stomping grounds, for sure.
I think we need some snipers there now to take out the trash.
I have always wanted to hunt mans most dangerous prey, MAN HIMSELF.

and their solution is to disarm all the law-abiding folks.
the demo is 3% of the population doing 75% of the gun murders. deal’wth them and you deal with a huge chunk of gun murders.
libtards won’t b/c the 3% are black urban feral youts.
libs will never do anything that would’really cut gun violence b/c the end goal is disarming all of us.
Snipers? Snipers? You need machine gunners for that task. Lots of 'em.
He’s too busy keeping Burry and Mikes table at Mans Country.
Norfolk, Virginia has them beat. Of course it isnt common, usually there are only one or two a night for the entire Hampton Roads area.
In Al Capone's Chicago you could legally buy a Thompson submachine gun for $225. By mail order.
Chart; A-Alcohol Prohibition, B-End of Prohibition, C-War on Drugs, D-9/11, etc.
Didn’t happen. Guns are illegal. So are drugs.
Chicago is the prototype liberal “Community Of Tomorrow” for the rest of the USA.
I don’t understand. Why doesn’t the city council just pass a law against murder? That would solve the problem.
