100 Shot, 14 Killed in Chicago Over Holiday Weekend

July 05, 2017  | 

Fourteen people were killed and 86 others were wounded in shootings across Chicago in a bloody Fourth of July weekend between Friday afternoon and Wednesday morning.

Last year’s Independence Day weekend, which was one day shorter than this year’s, ended with 66 people shot, four of them fatally — a total that actually stoked cautious optimism with the lowest death toll for the July 4 weekend in nearly a decade.

Six of the people who died this year were among 36 people shot across the city in an 8-hour span of violence between 8 p.m. Tuesday and 4 a.m. Wednesday, Fox 32 Chicago reports.

Gee a Democratic run city/county(for like 100 years) run by a Obama pal and policed by a Black police chief, why would there be any violence in that city? Oh the Mayor spends more time being a "sanctuary city" for illegals then protecting the black citizens and giving them "sanctuary" from black on Black violence. I left that =city 35 years ago, it was bad then, now with lack of support for the coins and the BLM its a fracking sewer and probably fall faster into ruin the even Detroit did or Baltimore or Washington DC, oh would they all be DEMOCRAT cities as well? DUH? Libs/BLM/"progressives" talk and talk about Black life matters and how they do so much for the Black populous, but people WAKE the heck up. Look over the past 50 years of this "talk" and what have they done? NOTHING but allow the cities they run to fall into more disrepair and chaos. Sad sad and people are blind to it apparently. Show our Black citizens some respect and stop lying to them and using them for votes!!
