Chicago Celebrates Holiday Weekend With Nine Dead, 53 Wounded in Shootings

Posted by 


Just imagine the carnage if they didn’t have those strict gun control laws on the books.

Statistics may show Chicago’s homicide rate is down to levels not seen since the 1960s, but parts of the city are still a war zone, residents of the South and West sides said after another bloody Fourth of July weekend.

As of 11:45 p.m. Sunday, nine people had been killed and another 53 wounded in gun violence over the holiday weekend, according to Chicago Police. Two more were shot dead by police.

While the boom of fireworks could be heard across the city, in places like West Englewood, South Shore and Austin, the bang of gunshots seemed almost as common.

All those killed were black or Hispanic men age 35 or younger. Two — Shaquille Ross, 18, and Kezon Lamb, 19 — were teenagers.

Just four shootings occurred on the North Side. But in West Englewood alone, one man was killed and eight others were shot.

“I gotta get out of here. In Englewood it’s looking like everybody is gonna be dead,” said Patricia Donald, 17, a recent graduate of Englewood High School whose car was once caught in gang crossfire, and who is moving to Oklahoma to attend college in the Fall.

Yes...but, only in Democrat controlled states and city's.  Florida is an armed camp (civilian) Illegals coming here. 

How's that gun control working out for ya Chicago?

Must be a sanctuary city thing.
I think the Demoncrats running Chicago are on the cartels payroll.
5 years ago the Chicago Sun Times ran an article about which cartel ran which neighborhood. Next time they have an Illegal immigrant rally, block the street and bring in the busses.
Oh, that's right, the busses are busy hauling in more in Texas.
Stop the insanity!

They should all be proud...they've given the keys to the city to killers, so that those rotten law-abiding citizens may feel the need to move...I wonder how much tax money will be retrieved from all the killers and gang-bangers.

Yes, I don't believe that this is true!!  Oh, it cannot be, for you are not allowed to have guns there. So I know they can't have shootings. Why didn't the president go and tell them that is a no-no???  I'm sure they would listen to him r all he is there hero, right??   Maybe his hero is wearing off.  I don't know how anyone could think anything good of him. I can't even stand to look at him.  I wish the congress would get some ba**s and throw him out of office!!   Nothing would make me happier.

Too bad Obama was not visiting his home town!

this city needs renamed - to Tartarus

Chicongo is what we call it.





Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
