Gun Control

Alert: 32 People Shot, At Least 3 Dead

on

The only sure thing that will happen in Chicago on a weekend is someone is getting shot. Here we go again. Another Friday night in the Windy City and multiple people are gunned down. And the trend continued throughout the weekend.

On Friday, no less than 32 people had been shot in shootings across the city, with three having died from their gunshot wounds. One person with the real Chicago thug life spirit killed and wounded nine people in a single attack in the Chatham section.

I’ve done so many stories on Chicago shootings I’m starting to see patterns in how the shooting scenarios play out. If I can see it, how come the politicians who run that town can’t do something about it?

Just after two in the morning, two males approached a group standing around on a sidewalk in the 7500 block of South Prairie Ave when they opened fire, according to Chicago police.

Bullets struck a 29-year-old woman in her leg and her abdomen. She was transported to the University of Chicago Medical Center where she was pronounced dead, police said.

She was identified as Mayfair Miles by the Cook County medical examiner’s office. She was from South Shore.

They transported victims from ages 23 to 39 to area hospitals, nine of them, and police said they are all in fair or good condition.

So far, no one has been arrested.

In South Loop, a 22-year-old man was shot fatally Saturday afternoon. Close to 1:30 pm, the man was parked on the street in the 600 block of South Wells Street when someone in a passing vehicle fired shots, police said. The man was hit multiple times and transported to Stroger Hospital where he was also pronounced dead, police said.

You would think Mayor Lori “Crow” Lightfoot would create special task forces or ask for state and federal help to get the violence off her streets but she’s too busy discriminating against white journalists to find the time.

And so it continues.

A 20-year-old female was murdered in a shooting Friday night in Brighton Park on the Southwest Side. At ten minutes to 9, Fhee Hernandez-Castillo was sitting in a vehicle with her boyfriend when a man with a gun approached the vehicle in the 4700 block of South Rockwell Street yelling gang slogans, Chicago police said.

Hernandez-Castillo was sitting in the passenger seat when she was shot in the neck and hand.

Her boyfriend drove off when the shooting stopped and later pulled over at a Shell gas station on S California Ave, waiting for Chicago Fire Department paramedics to arrive. They transported her to Mount Sinai Hospital and where later she was pronounced dead, police said. And what did she do to incite her own murder? She was sitting in a vehicle.

A 14-year-old boy was shot and wounded in an attack on Saturday in the West Woodlawn section. The boy was simply playing with his friends on the sidewalk when at around 6:45 pm somebody opened fire in the 6500 block of South Champlain Avenue, according to police. The boy took a grazing wound to his neck, was transported over to Comer Children’s Hospital and police say at last check his condition was stabilized.

What the hell is going on when people are shooting children?

Another drive-by shooting on Saturday hurt two more teenage boys in Little Village on the Southwest Side. Both 17 years old, the two teens were in an alley close to  3:30 pm when a vehicle drove past them. Suddenly, someone from the vehicle started shooting at them in the 3500 block of West Cermak Road. One was shot in the shoulder and the other received a grace would to his arm. Both were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, and both were last listed as good condition.

Two men, one 29 and another 33 were shot and wounded in South Shore in the 7500 block of South Kingston Ave while on the sidewalk about 6:50 pm Friday. The 29-year-old received multiple gunshot wounds to the body, while the 33-year-old was hit in the arm. Both were taken to Chicago Medical Center and both are now in good condition.

At last count, no less than 15 more people have been shot since 5 pm Friday. There may be more, as it’s only Sunday.

At least this weekend wasn’t as bad as last weekend when close to 60 people were shot in Chicago.

Before long there won’t be anyone left who hasn’t been shot in Lori “Crow” Lightfoot’s city. This is what happens when progressives are elected to positions of power. Lightfoot is in over her head. She has no idea how to stop the violence. The National Guard would solve a lot of the violence problems in Chicago, but progressive politicians don’t want to admit they failed and need help. So more people will die.

😠 Why, there is no problem.  These people are just protestors.   They may or may not know what they are protesting; but they must be allowed to loot, burn, murder, and steal.  All must be forgiven. Forgiven!  The true solution is being offered by left-wingers ... defund the police, replace them with social woorkers who will talk the protestors into being nice.  Great Teal, PEOPLE!

I would have moved from Chicagoo years ago. My son didn't like it when his company flew him to Chicago to rent a car to drive to a nearby town to see plant and back to Chicago to fly home.

I maintain the problem is these gangstas don't have anyplace to practice their shooting. Chicago should build several ranges convenient to these areas of violence, that way more victims will be spared

This shooting really doesn't matter. It doesn't involve a White Cop shooting a Black Thug. You know, the Thug with a Rap Sheet as long as your arm and his Mother crying that they Killed My Baby! That's the event that the Black community can really get behind. You know, the Free Pass to Loot the Local Walmart and burn down the Local CVS. Then thay can name a Street after that POS!

Lori Lightfoot can’t accept advice on how to end the violence in Chagio because she’s a Democrat and they all just know theyre the “smartest person in the room”. The rest of us can see with our own eyes they’re the most incompetent “me first” crooks ever to infest politics who continus to repeat the same insane mistakes over and over while refusing to ever admit they’re wrong.

"So far, no one has been arrested."  Same pattern in major Dem run cities. Liberal Democrat mayors and city councils have sown to the wind and are reaping the whirlwind. They have refused to confront gang and thug culture for decades.  There are no arrests in "don't be a snitch" land. For many years, they have proudly built sanctuary cities, let violent illegal criminals off the hook, and given all illegals a pass. They openly refuse to enforce laws they don't like, and they have interfered with ICE and CBP when they try to remove violent illegal criminals. Throughout 2020, they proudly marched and knelt in solidarity with BLM during “protests” that quickly turned violent and destructive. They say they are protecting officers by not responding to property crimes, stating "that is what insurance is for." They have refused to confront gang and thug culture for decades. As the looting, shooting, riots, and arson destroy their cities, they act like it is all some kind of terrible, random hail storm.  "Where'd that come from?"  They only "know" it is the fault of the NRA, Trump, "systemic racism", etc, etc
