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..
. . . and Nero fiddled while Rome burned.
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.
So it was a slow weekend. The thugs will up their game next weekend.
Were Obama’s children misbehaving again?
These neighborhood watch white Hispanic gun nuts are getting totally out of hand.
Can’t Zer0 go to the South Side and give a speech every Saturday Night until this stops?
Stay away from cities that have Englewood section or MLK BLVDS.
That batallion of LEOs in for ValJ’s daughter’s wedding kind of inhibited things.
We’ll see a return to normalcy next weekend.
Black relatives of the Sons of Sam.
Round them all up. Pull out the ones that will fit into our society and get rid of the rest.....permanently.
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.
It’s a quagmire, we need to pull out of Chicago. Where is O’s exit strategy?!
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.
