4 Children Shot, 18 People Dead, 47 Wounded in Weekend Violence in Mayor Lightfoot’s Chicago

65 people were shot across Chicago this weekend as Mayor Lightfoot pushed for police reform and lectured the city on Coronavirus safety measures.

Four children were among the 65 people shot.

A total of 18 people died, including 2 children and a baby.

Fox 6 reported:

The weekend gun violence brought Chicago past 300 homicides so far this year, the benchmark that Supt. David Brown challenged the police department to stay under in April. Last year, the city didn’t break 300 homicides until early August, according to Sun-Times data.

A 10-year-old girl was fatally shot Saturday night when a stray bullet hit her inside a Logan Square home on the Northwest Side.

Earlier that afternoon, a 1-year-old boy was killed and his mother was wounded in Englewood on the South Side.

Earlier that morning, a teenage boy was shot to death in Humboldt Park on the West Side.

The most recent fatal shooting happened early Monday in Brighton Park on the Southwest Side.

A 21-year-old man was walking about 2:22 a.m. in the 4400 block of South Whipple Street when a male suspect approached him and shot him in the face and leg, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Nearly two hours before that, a man was found shot to death in Humboldt Park.

On Sunday night, a man was shot and killed in Garfield Park on the West Side.

The 23-year-old was found unresponsive with gunshot wounds to the hip about 11:04 p.m. in the 4500 block of West Maypole Avenue, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Earlier Sunday night, another man was killed in West Pullman on the Far South Side.

Three people were killed in separate shootings within 90 minutes Sunday morning.

Last weekend 104 people were shot in Chicago, 15 fatally, including 5 children.

But black lives matter, right?

Meanwhile...since the end of May CHOP is tied with Cops for offing blacks, 2-2. Though their season may yet be cut short, CHOP, the new kid, may quickly surpass the cops in the contest.

There are 2 bases for any ethical system. (1) Aristocratic code (2) Religion. Liberals reject both which leaves them with exactly nothing… A man without code or religion has no other reason other than mere preference to consider any interests other than his own. Why should “he think in time” beyond his own life [or] hesitate to expoit anyone?

We have a new type of rule now. Not one-man rule, or rule of aristocracy or plutocracy, but of small groups elevated to positions of absolute power by random pressures and subject to political and economic factors that leave little room for decision.

They are representatives of abstract forces who have reached power through surrender of self. The iron-willed dictator is a thing of past.

There will be no more Stalins, no more Hitlers.

The rulers of this most insecure of all worlds are rulers by accident. Inept, frightened pilots at the controls of a vast machine they cannot understand, calling in experts to tell them which buttons to push.
