6 Dead, 28 Wounded In (Chicago) Holiday Weekend Shootings (as of July 5)
CBS Chicago ^

Posted on 07/05/2013 6:35:01 PM PDT by matt04

Six men were killed and at least 28 other people were wounded in shootings throughout the city so far this holiday weekend.

A 5-year-old boy was among the wounded — shot early Friday alongside two men at a West Pullman park.

Several hours earlier, a 7-year-old boy was also shot in a park – this one in Chatham.

Additionally, Chicago Police fatally shot a male in the Washington Park neighborhood on the South Side.

The most recent murder was reported to police about 5:15 a.m. Friday in the Rogers Park neighborhood. A man was found shot to death in the 7400 block of North Paulina Street, police said. No other details were available.

...

Nobody is in custody for any of the murders.

Maybe, just maybe, if we banned citizens from carrying firearms, these murder wouldn't happen.

Oh, wait.

Hahahahaha.

They have tarted the “Ghetto Lottery” in the comments to see who can come the closest to the actual number of homicides/shootings by Monday.

Sooner or later the Ballerina Mayor Boy [that would be Roehm Emmanuel] will be cruising in the wrong neighborhood at 3:00 AM, trolling for rough trade - and will be caught in the crossfire. Awwwwwwww, what a pity.

Really poor shoot/kill ratio too.As usual,the inner city types lack the conviction to learn proper marksmanship. ever did learn,then the city would need dump trucks to haul away the bodies.

I would feel safer at a Muslim Brotherhood demonstration in Egypt than in South Side Chicago.

Any of those dead or wounded white?
Probably not.

I think it would make a very interesting, and inexpensive, sociological experiment to select one of the more violent parts of Chicago, and post vigilante posters around the place, in the early morning hours.

“WARNING! NOTICE IS GIVEN THAT ANY PERSON FOUND COMMITTING ACTS OF LAWLESS VIOLENCE WILL BE SUMMARILY EXECUTED! — Vigilance Committee”

This is not just directed at the criminals, but at the government, and most of all at the people who live in that area.

To the criminals it says that they may be killed without warning. To the local government it says that it has failed in its most important duty. And to the people who live there, it hopefully will give them the idea that the law is theirs to enforce, and not to wait around for it to be enforced.

The first effect would be the government having a hysterical hissy fit, then threatening the vigilantes and decrying people “taking the law into their own hands.”

For their part, the criminals might tone it down some, as they don’t know if it’s for real or not.

And hopefully, some honest citizens might decide that if they take out some of the bad criminals, it would be blamed on the vigilantes. And thus, the vigilantism would become self generating.

That is exactly how sharia is implemented. You knew that, and presented the scenario, anyhow. Why?

How many of these perps bought their guns and ammo legally?

How many of these perps have a permit to carry concealed?

How many of these perps are NRA members?

“A 5-year-old boy was among the wounded... Several hours earlier, a 7-year-old boy was also shot....”

I read an article where a bunch of women in some African country got together to pray to end their civil war. Then they became more involved in their communities. They finally resorted to saying “no sex” to their husbands to make them sit done and end the war. The war ended.

I wish some Godly women would do that in Chicago. Of course with so many daddies but very few husbands it probably wouldn’t work in Chicago.

That is a bizarre extrapolation. Vigilantism is a proud American tradition when criminals run rampant, and government either won’t stop them, or worse, joins with them against the honest citizenry. It’s got nothing at all to do with Sharia law, which from the American point of view is something that primitive and barbaric foreigners do.

Vigilantism almost always remains a peaceful movement, following legal means to get the government to perform its duties. But it only arises when those peaceful means are thwarted. This means petitions are despised, elections are subverted, attempts at citizen watch patrols to report crime and criminals are ignored by the police.

As soon as a citizens organization forms, not even imagining itself as a vigilante group, the criminals see it as a threat to their power and attack it, and the government sees it as a greater threat to *their* power than even the criminals and attack it as well. They do this with threats and violence directed against the leaders and members of the group and their families.

This can mean an attack by criminals, or the police, or both against non-violent citizens. And they are not satisfied with just breaking up the citizens group; they want to humiliate it and humble it before its criminal and government masters.

Finally, the citizenry can take no more, and decide to drive out the criminals and likely the corrupt government. And even at this late point, they just want them to leave. But if they resist, then the vigilantes finally turn violent, and become a lynch mob.

Posters like this, that I mentioned before, oddly go up after the criminals and corrupt government have been driven out. The purpose, I suppose, is to let any remaining criminals know that they had better leave, because any attempt by them to break the law will be met with swift punishment.

All of it is US history, repeated many times before, mostly in old California. Nothing at all to do with Muslims and their heathen ways.

So all told, by posting such flyers in a rough part of Chicago, those who know US history would recognize them, and they would be seen as a damning indictment of the local government. And that is the real purpose of the exercise.

Maybe not, additional gunshots could likely have been mistaken for fireworks and those bodies could be found by Monday morning.......

Maybe its time to put a fence around South Chicago, give them all the time they need to shoot each other and problem solved. Then we can move on to Philly, St. Louis, etc. etc. (certainly I have missed many other great places in the liberal world.)

And they called Cambodia “The Killing Fields”. The problem for these folks is that they have every reason to fear the government as much as the street thugs. If they leave their security to the police, street thugs will kill them. If they defend their lives, then the cops will kill them or their local prosecutor will put them in prison for life.

Talk about a no-win scenario. Here is indisputable proof that the police and laws cannot protect you or prevent crime. The only thing decent people can do is get out of this city (and other liberal-run cities) and let the politicians and the criminals battle it out.

Let them try raising taxes from street thugs.

I would not feel safe on any “side” of Chicago. The criminals know where to find the loot when they want it. And they know that the loot is not in the poor part of town.

I cannot say whether the dead are white or black or any other race of people. What I can say is that dead is dead no matter what race you are.

More to the point, are you a kook or not? Your suggestion that American vigilantism has something, anything, to do with Sharia law is extremely far fetched, and lacking any foundation at all. And to imply that someone here has Sharia law sensibilities is downright insulting.

Just the sort of thing a communist might do.

Well, in that you have answered my question, of whether you are a kook or not, in the affirmative, I can conclude by saying that I am not now, nor have I ever been a Muslim.

That being said, it’s time for you to take your meds.
