The Great Society and all of its subsequent iterations have brought us here.
Sad. and Pathetic.
Let me guess. These shootings were committed by “teenagers” and they were all starting to “turn their lives around”.
And never that scumbag Ayers.
Not enough midnight basketball.
Another Democrap paradise.
I believe the propogandists in the enemedia refer to them as "aspiring rap stars".
Why the hell are Democrats such a violent species? Between their fondness for killing babies as an option and this element that seemingly has no respect for human life.
Speaking of the enemedia... Isn’t it funny how there is never any mention of these shooting occuring in a POS libtard-run city with some of the most stringent gun laws in the country? These people are so stupid they should be charged for their oxygen...
He’s got himself pretty well ensconced in tony surroundings.
why aren’t JBT’s busting doors and heads ?
The Gaza Strip might be a safer place than Chicago.
Somebody ought to do something. Maybe the gov will call for banning “assault weapons” and .50 cal Barretts. Oh, wait. He’s already headed down that road. That ought to stop some of the carnage in chit-cago since those items seem to be commonly used there. They’re not? Hmmm. What a mess. Just send more tax dollars. I think jessuh jackshun wanted the lyin’ king to pony up a chunk of change. Like $2 mil or $2 bil. Don’t matter if it ain’t your money.
It’s a national disgrace how these folks are exploited.
"Stray" doesn't fit the definition - if the shooter was firing in a different direction and had a group going, then this might be a "stray" bullet - I guess it's the easier and kinder way to treat minority gangbangers - blame it on the bullet going "astray".
oxygen credits ... I LIKE the idea.
Just another Friday night in Chicago, the youths are blowing off some steam.
How come they got so much steam, anyway?
Now, if in high school, say maybe tenth-year students, they would give them a course of training in the use, care, and operation of firearms, there might not be so many of these stray shots flying around. The youths could then trade shots at each other much more accurately, without wasting all this extra ammunition. (Oh, criminy, do I HAVE to put on the < /sarc > tag?)

Shootings by stray bullets don’t count - it’s all about intent. Besides, how can anyone dumb enough to shoot their gun while holding it sideways be held accountable?
