43 People Shot, 6 Killed, in Chicago over the Weekend

A total of 43 people were shot over the weekend in Chicago; 37 people were injured, and six people died of their injuries, as reported by ABC News .

Between 6:30 PM on Friday and Noon on Sunday, the Chicago Police Department had responded to 35 different calls of shootings across the city. The incidents range from mass shootings to individual shootings, as well as planned attacks and apparently random outbursts.

In the early morning hours on Sunday, a group of people were standing on the sidewalk in the Austin neighborhood when a silver sedan pulled up. Two gunmen got out and suddenly began opening fire, injuring five people between the ages of 18 and 47; although there were no fatalities in this incident, all of the victims were listed as being in serious condition at the hospital.

In a separate incident that same morning, a 27-year-old tow-truck driver who was providing assistance to a customer in the Englewood neighborhood was shot and killed suddenly when a gunman walked up to him and fired several times at close range.

No arrests have yet been made in either of these cases, nor in most of the other shootings over the course of the weekend.

Among the injured are a 3-year-old boy and a 15-year-old girl. The boy was hit when shots were fired directly into his home in Calumet Heights on Saturday evening; after being taken to a hospital, the boy was listed in good condition. In the West Englewood neighborhood that same night, the girl was shot, along with a 20-year-old woman, while they were standing on a street and apparently shot from a distance.

Overall, over 2,490 people have been shot in Chicago in the year 2021, which marks a 9 percent increase from the amount of people shot over the first nine months of 2020. There have currently been 558 recorded homicides in the city this year, with most of them being due to shootings, also a 3 percent increase from 2020. Of the shooting victims this year, over 250 of them have been children.

Yet black lives matter … :thinking:


Only when it’s convenient to the left.

Let’s spend 6.4 billion to resettle Afghan refugees, lets raise the refuge cap to 125K i October.

The left ignores what’s happening in their cesspool cities.

It will only get worst in the next 2 years . Our rights are vanishing away without a whimper . :skull_and_crossbones:

Democrats are total idiots. Period. They do not think. They do not have brains that are developed enough for that process.


It’s the same thing as with the TSA.

We sacrifice rights for the facade of safety.

In Robert Bork’s brilliant book “Slouching Towards Gomorrah” he outlined the event which changed the very definition of liberal.
The word used to mean laisse faire capitalism, with little to no government regulation. The greatest economists of all time (Ludwig Von Mises, Friedrich Hayek, Milton Friedman, etc) considered themselves liberals.
The event in the Sixties was the Port Huron Statement, which created the socialist model for the newbie left wingers, (Abbie Hoffman, Tom Hayden, Jerry Rubin) and the term “liberal” came to mean all sorts of goose stepping socialism, anti-Americanism, etc.

Classical liberalism is the term used to designate the ideology advocating private property, an unhampered market economy, the rule of law, constitutional guarantees of freedom of religion and of the press, and international peace based on free trade.

How times have changed.

Precisely. Today liberalism means cancel culture and other Nazi horrors.

Liberal today is the welfare and the nanny state.

Let me guess. No one saw anything, right?

I’m honestly at the point where they can knock each other off and I really don’t care. If no one is going to step up in the communities to help law enforcement then they are sheep living in a den of wolves.

I know the situation is a lot more complex but really. That is what it ultimately boils down to.

Which is interesting as the people in the cities demand to defund the police and then crime rises.

Complex, not really we are talking about people with different agendas.

Most don’t want the police de-funded or “re-imagined”.

This is a lib agenda. Law abiding want law and order. Criminals and anarchists don’t.

A product of BLM’s…

And Antifa…
