During a weekend that saw another mass shooting and a person shot by a Chicago police officer, at least 73 people were shot, 12 of them fatally in the city, according to police and Tribune records.
Five men were injured in a mass shooting in South Austin early Sunday, the fourth such attack with four or more victims in less than a week. The men, ages 23 to 50, were gathered in a yard in the 4800 block of West Race Avenue when a man with a gun entered the yard around 12:30 a.m. and began shooting at them, police said in a media notification.
Later that night, a male was shot as he ran from tactical officers making a street stop in Bronzeville.
In other shootings Sunday into Monday:

Maybe Chicago could solve their budget shortages by just declaring the City an open shooting gallery charging ten dollars for a full clip and rewarding $10,000 for each criminal shot. Incareraction and prosecutorial expenses would sure go down and what is happening now illegally would just become recognized as the new Democrat progressive solution to crime on the streets, and Democrat redefinition of law and oder.
IMO its high bloody time, we WALLED THE ENTIRE damn city off.. AND PULLED OUT all Emergency service folk.
Mayor Lighthead is working on that, I’m sure.
They should put up a big electronic board outside of her office and keep it constantly updated, but then, that may be an uncomfortable reminder of how not-so-well she is doing.
Why would it make her uncomfortable. SHE HAS armed security to protect her sorry butt…
“SAY THEIR NAMES!” That’s all we heard from the indignant blacks and white liberal kids who parroted them, whose gangsta relatives met their fate at the hands of law enforcement who were protecting THEIR community. A running tally of ALL the ongoing tens of thousands of shooting victims of the Black Lives (DON’T really f*****g )Matter would keep them “saying their names” until they all turned purple.
SINCE none were killed by WHITE cops, they will never EVER get ‘named’..
She is refusing to talk about the 137 shootings that have happened on the Expressways also. That is not her responsibility, talk to the State police about that.
