We all know about the constant shootings happening in Chicago.

Well this 4th of July long weekend has brought more focus on Chicago and their shootings.

60 shootings and 8 dead (so far) !*!

The hysteria continues .........

Violence leaves about 60 shot, 8 of them dead, for July 4th weekend

Dozens of people were struck by gunfire in Chicago, some of them fatally, during the traditionally violent Fourth of July weekend, mostly in parts of the South and West sides that have long been plagued by gang crime and gun violence.

From Friday afternoon through Tuesday afternoon, about 60 people were shot with eight of them killed, according to data kept by the Tribune.

The toll comes as the Chicago Police Department added roughly 1,300 police officers to work each day since Friday to patrol the violent neighborhoods, the parks, the CTA transit system and the lakefront, where large crowds formed to celebrate the holiday and watch fireworks.

Hate to say it but we know where the problem lies in Chicago. Enough with the excuses, jobs, education, gangs. We have choices as humans, even in that middle west city. A good democrat city I might add, for generations!

Seriously they are like cock roaches. Thanks to the wonderful welfare in Cedar Rapids and the (supposedly) billboards telling them to come Cedar Rapids we are now facing a serious problem with more violent crimes. Mainly shootings. Progressively it's getting worse on where these shootings occur. You mainly have them in our low income neighborhoods but just on Sunday we had one during the day in a Walmart parking lot that killed one.

When does the July 4th "Weekend" end? 6 more people have been shot in the hours since that Tuesday afternoon article you linked to.

LOL - I'm as far away from Chicago as is geographically possible (short of leaving the planet for a different home) and even I, as a non-yank, am NOT surprised, in the slightest, by these stats coming from Americas Aleppo.

They are not using BB guns.
And they are bad shots.
That's why innocent people get shot.

It's easy to hide the sound of a gunshot when people are using fireworks.

There is a reason why this is to continue to happen. Its MORE COST EFFECTIVE TO LET THE SCUMS TAKE CARE OF THEIR OWN ECONOMIC PRISON. I once used to hop the trains going to Rockford Illinois just to buy coffee and then come back to the Quad Cities. Not bad for a 16 year older. I never once thought about danger.

I am honestly surprised the numbers aren't higher. The night isn't over yet...

Chicago is a cesspool. Once upon a time it was a great city. Then the democrats happened. Sorry to those who hate to make things political. But Chicago is a glowing endorsement for democrat policies in action. You absolutely can not blame republicans for this. No way. This is not Trump's fault. This is not Bush's fault. This is not Reagan's fault. This is not the NRA's fault. This is not the second amendment's fault.

This is black people shooting black people. Not a word from jesse jackass or al sharpton. A white cop shoots a black criminal and its like the world is coming to an end. But black murderers shoot 60, 70, 80, of their own in one weekend and no riots...nothing. Its not about the lives people. Its about the politics.

Only 12% are white.

Black male: 78 percent Black female: 10.9 percent White male 10.9 percent Hispanic: 2.8 percent White female: 1 percent Undetermined: 1 percent


Percentages seem about right.
