29 May, 2019 – Good news everyone, only 34 people were shot over the weekend in Chicago, police said.
The year to date stats look even better. Shot and wounded 724, shot and killed 179, total shot . Oh, and misc. murders were a mere 194!
Congratulations Chicago. Just goes to show you what a little community organizing can do, right? Wow, only 903 shot since January. If they keep this up shootings could come in under 2000 for the whole year. Whoopie do.
Back in 2015, there were 2,900 shootings, 13% more than the year before and in 2016 there was about a 200% increase over 2015. Chicago shootings beat military combat casualties 6 ways to Sunday for the same time periods. But, oddly Chicago has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation, so how do we explain the shootings? Don’t ask this question to a democrat, because you’ll just get the deer in the headlights look.
PS Does anyone recall the protest parade Black Lives Matter held on any of these years? Nah, me either.
