35 Hurt, 7 Killed in Chicago Shootings
5 NBC Chicago ^ | June 18, 2012 | Staff

Weekend violence didn't stop for President Barack Obama's Chicago visit

President Barack Obama's visit to Chicago didn't stop another violent weekend.

At least seven people were killed and 35 were injured since Friday night. The youngest victim was a 16-year-old girl who died after she was shot three times in the chest Saturday evening in the Englewood neighborhood.

Ten people were shot overnight Friday, and in one hour Sunday morning, three people were killed. The latest shooting happened just after midnight Monday when a 19-year-old was shot to death on the city's North Side.

The shootings mark the third weekend in a row with gunfire injuries totaling well into the double digits. Last weekend, (link) across Chicago. The previous weekend, (29 hurt, 3 killed....) in shootings.

"None of it is OK," Supt. Garry McCarthy told NBC Chicago last week. "And I don't want it to seem like we're managing it, but the realistic expectations have to be over the long-term."

This weekend marked the beginning of an overtime incentive program to put more police in neighborhoods where crime is highest. Fewer than 60 officers signed up for the program, though.

President Obama and his family arrived in Chicago Friday evening. They attended the wedding of senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett's daughter, and the president spent Father's Day golfing with friends.

This is obviously a lie. There are no guns in Chicago. It is a ‘gun free city”. No guns allowed..

Paging Je$$ie HiJack$on and Al $harpton.

Sounds like George Zimmerman and the evil George Bush were in Chi Town last week.

Time for you two shysters, er spokeguys, to get on the MSM to warn about the two dangerous Georges on the loose in Chicago.

These low numbers for a typical Summer weekend in Chicago are due to the number of separate appearances necessary to meet Father's Day demands.

That batallion of LEOs in for ValJ’s daughter’s wedding kind of inhibited things.

We’ll see a return to normalcy next weekend.

Anyone know the number of soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan over the same period of time?

Plus, Obama made sure Chicago was completely organized before he left.

So all of this alleged violence is quite impossible.

Wonder why the MSM doesn't publish a weekly fatality list like they do for Afghanistan.

Time to ban guns! Wait. What?

I think it is the soda. the need to ban sugary drinks llike Coke so the yutes would not be so hyped up and need to shoot the guns that leap off tables and into their young innocent hands.

This really could be Bushes fault. He didn’t ban soft drinks.

For the shootings where scum were eliminated, I say good for the city, as it’s a little safer with that much less scum alive in it.

for the shootings where innocent citizens were hit, why is the democrat utopia unable to keep you safe in a supposed gun-free city? The thousands of police there can’t do anything but take notes after it happens. Consider leaving to a place to can legally protect yourself and exist in a safer environment.

I still like my thunderdome idea. They all enter but only one leaves. Little does the last one know that they are shot while on the way out.

The ideal society according to black democratic mayors and other garbage like NYC’s Bloomturd. “A society where only the police and military are armed” As long as no police or other government bureaucrats were hurt, then what happens to the peasants is of no consequence at all.

And all these gang shootings are counted by the feckless Brady anti-gun nut jobs as “children” who have been killed by guns.

what a great father. I am sure his daughters loved hitting a few golf balls with their dad.... what? He didn't take his daughters????? But, the media tells us he is a great father and family guy!

Oh, well, I am sure he took the girls golfing the majority of those 100- 5 to 6 hour trips to the links. Right? No? Never?

What a lousy jerk. When does he spend time with the kids? When he looks at their picture in his wallet?????

If you only look at Afghanistan (compared to Chicago), there were fewer American deaths there than in Chicago.
