Over the weekend in Chicago 30 people were shοt, including four who were fatally wounded.chicago police (2)

An 18 year old man was found with a fatal wound to his back on Friday afternoon near the Rogers Park area. The teen was taken to Presence St. Francis Hospital in Evanston after police arrived on the scene but was pronounced deαd at the hospital.

A woman was also fatally shοt on Friday near the West Garfield Park neighborhood.

NBC Chicago provides an example of the level of viοlence that continued throughout the weekend:

  • Around 1:10 p.m., police said a 27-year-old man was shοt in the 400 block of North Leamington Avenue. The man suffered two wounds to the right hand and was taken to West Suburban Medical Center in stable condition.
  • Just before 1 a.m. Sunday, a 21-year-old man was shοt in the leg while walking in the 9000 block of South Harvard Avenue. The man was taken to Little Company of Mary Hospital in good condition.
  • Just before midnight Saturday, a 27-year-old man was shοt in the 5100 block of South Wood Street. The man was walking on the block when a black vehicle pulled alongside him and someone in the vehicle opened fire, police said.

Although this was an extremely viοlent weekend, Easter weekend still stands out as the most fatal for Chicagoans. Over Easter weekend 45 people were shοt in Chicago and out of those, nine people dιed.

Chicago police commander Ronald Holt said at the time that the city was witnessing “fratricide” among young men who believe “that the only way to resolve a conflict is to get a gun and go shoot to kιll.”

  1. Where is the love?

  2. SAD…

  3. Urban Darwinism.

  4. Some one please tell me what officials doing to curb this problem.

  5. That's crazy

  6. Nobody's getting shot anywhere else but in Chicago these days. If I were those people, I'd pack up and move to Detroit, Philly, New Orleans, LA, Phoenix, Dallas, or Houston. Maybe even to Zimmerman's hometown Sanford FL…

  7. If we count the numbers, why is this happening in America, This has happen in every major city in America, New York, Baltimore, Chicago, Detroit, you name and when we look at the numbers of the Blacks getting killed, keep in mind this is not a third world country.

    We have daily killings at the rate with young people, no age has a limit. When we have people who have no morals for people of any race, or color, or religion, we have a problem, where either we have become a society of WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON WITH OUR INNER CITY. Over the last months, we have heard about killings in Las vegas, schools, wife kills husband, husband kills wife and kids.

    Never before in America has these types of killings been a rise. We know people have mental health issues, then lets get them help ASAP, we know people have gang related Issues, then lets work to end this madness. We know people are living on the edge, family issues, financial issues, Gender Issues, who know we all have our own demons, but we do not need to go out a kill people.

    The America Dream is a great dream, we just have to get to the root of our problems which is economic and financial growth. Social justice, crime in america , rebuilding our families, communities, our children. We have had rallies, meetings, Government out cry to no avail. It seems that unless there is a war, do we get the attention of our Police, and local politicians.

    I read the news across the world daily, and know this is not Pakistan, or a third world country where I would never want to be, or have bombs blowing up daily, so at least we do not have to deal with all of that, but the effect we see for chidren losing their parents due to murder, and violence is out ragious in any State.

    Why people even think of killing people, and other people for no reason. We have to be on alert for every situation, I live in Baltimore, and just had a good friend found dead with her throat cut, and stabbed 8 times. This was a hard working mother, carpenter by trade, and could work just as hard as any man I know. It really hit home due to the fact I just saw her home depo about 3 weeks ago, then in our city a shooting of teen in broad day light, he was able to walk to our local fire department, where he got help in time.

    So I think our world has great potential, but how do we resolve this night mare with out either more police protection, or bring out the National Guard, if they can not see that this is a major problem in any major City, we have our own WAR!!!!!

    Peace

  8. We are bearing witness to 21st century genocide right in our faces.
    The average black person does not know how this works or who actually set this in motion against the black masses.

  9. This is sad! But what is worse is the eventual reaction to all the violence and illegal gun use by the government and all the ill feeling that it will evoke. It's not a matter of if the three government groups will respond. It's when and for how long. Think real Marshall Law, not the play stuff that was at Watts back in the day. Think curfew or death. Think gun = death. If it is a zone, think bomb it all. Think innocents dying! Most sad. Turf wars don't have to happen. But some are being allowed so that down the road, reactionary control can take place. Japan, Germany, Bosnia, Iraq and others. Maybe I am wrong. I hope so, but see history lived in the struggles of NY, the dust bowl, riots of the depression etc. I hope something is done for the peoples sake!

  10. If we look to officials to curb this problem instead of our fathers and mothers, then we have no hope. This is a cultural problem that starts in the home and is often present when a father isn't.

  11. Its really not a black/white thing anymore. Its now at the point where if we seperate we are doomed. We must join together to take back our world. Martin Luther King, Kennedy, long, Emily (friend of King), started this revolution but they were killed before they could finish it. The finishing is left to us. Go back to kings words. Its all about coming together to fight the real lies, the real enemy. Racism is the old lie….humans were born with compassion we were never racist. The polititians and big money people were but not us … the other 92% … the majority. We have the power to unite and together we are strong. We are all one. Nobody here is American…we are all mixed from other countries.

  12. Add colors to your life: Painting your walls based on a theme can add a major
    difference to your home decor. On the other hand, if you pay close attention to the lounging
    areas of many individuals, you can find a key
    to their personalities therein, as a natural tones indicate a hardworking persons desire to relax.
    Many are dedicated to their respective work and profession just to fulfill
    that goal.

  13. Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a
    youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83
    views. I know this is completely off topic
    but I had to share it with someone!

  14. among the very best system I know, thank you quite much .

  15. Very good – I really should definitely pronounce, impressed with your web site. I had no trouble navigating by way of all tabs as effectively as related information ended up being truly simple to do to access. I recently located what I hoped for before you know it at all. Quite unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or anything, web site theme . a tones way for your client to communicate. Good task.
