No marches for the continued violence: 5 dead, 19 wounded in Chiraq weekend shootings

A manufactured temper tantrum trumps #BlackLivesMatter.

From CBS Chicago: A violent span from Saturday afternoon to early Sunday left five people killed and 15 others wounded in 13 separate shootings, according to Chicago Police. They were the latest attacks in a weekend that has seen 24 shot — five fatally — since Friday evening. A 5-year-old girl was among the victims.

The five slayings pushed the city to 23 shootings deaths in the year’s first 21 days, according to data maintained by the Chicago Sun-Times. In all, there have been 26 homicides so far this year.

The latest fatal shooting happened about 2:20 a.m. Sunday when a 41-year-old man was shot to death while driving in the West Pullman neighborhood on the Far South Side, according to Chicago Police. He was shot multiple times in the body while driving in the 12900 block of South Halsted. The man was pronounced dead at MetroSouth Medical Center in Blue Island.

Less than an hour earlier, two men were shot to death in a Belmont Central neighborhood drive-by attack on the Northwest Side. The men, ages 19 and 25, were walking about 3 a.m. when a black vehicle drove by in the 6000 block of West Belden and someone inside opened fire, police said.

The younger man was shot in the head and taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center, while the older man was taken to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood with a gunshot wound to the back, police said. Both were pronounced dead.

Another man was shot to death Saturday afternoon at a bus stop near a CTA Red Line station in the South Side Englewood neighborhood, police said. About 1:15 p.m., the 23-year-old was standing at an upper level bus stop near the 69th Street Red Line station, 15 W. 69th Street, when he was approached by another male, according to police. During an ensuing argument, the male pulled out a gun and shot the man in his chest. He was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The weekend’s first shooting death happened Friday evening when a 29-year-old man was shot dead on the South Side.

He was standing outside a liquor store about 6:35 p.m. in the 2900 block of East 79th Street when someone wearing a camouflage jacket over a black hoodie exited the store and shot him in the head, police said. The shooter ran away heading north on Escanaba. The man who was shot was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he died.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office hadn’t released any of their identities by Sunday morning.

At least 19 other people were hurt in shootings since Friday evening, including four wounded — one critically — in a drive-by attack early Sunday outside a Humboldt Park party on the West Side. A man also accidentally shot himself early Sunday in the South Side Englewood neighborhood.

  1. Meanwhile, here’s a pic from yesterday’s Women’s March on Washington:

    • I find the dichotomy of what is going on in Chicago as opposed to the dingbat woman above, holding her sign referencing vaginas . . . is just about as ludicrous as anything could possibly be. Even though I am a woman, I really don’t understand what these women are up in arms about. Our country is enjoying an economy that is getting better and better with each passing month, we see that our current President is actually getting the “business of the people” done, and accomplishing great things. If the women who are marching are just there because Killary lost the election–shame on them. Then we look at the wholesale killing happening in Chicago, no one is marching, no one is expressing outrage, no one is holding pink signs that expresses their anger at the killings going on. When I read the part of this article where it said a little five year old girl had been the victim of this horrific slaughter, I was heartsick. Why people are not outraged over Chicago, but go all in to march on Washington . . . it rather reminds me of “country club political speech.”

      DCG . . . thank you for staying on this particular on-going story. This whole theme of the wanton killing in Chicago is absolutely a part of our American history, and not a very good part!

    • Can they do that if they aren’t friendly with their vaginas?

      • DCG . . . . If you look at the picture of Michele Hanson, the author of the article, “Why I refused to make friends with my vagina.” You will see a dour looking old woman. She reminds me of the pictures of woman from the 1800’s, looking sour, mean, unhappy, tired, worn out, care worn to the extreme, I have a hard time Imagining that she could write anything of real value or important to any discussions. She evidently had a baby out of wedlock back at the time when society did not find this as acceptable as today. I would love to know how her baby turned out; what kind of relationship they have as parent and child. I am sorry to say such a mean thing . . . . but I wouldn’t want a mother who looks that unemotional and just plain mean looking.

  2. If the commies and their various associated parasites were to protest these occurrences that would mean admitting to a glorious failure of their attempts at societal control.

  3. The pic above reflects We really live in a very “free society”, pretty soon love making is going to be out in the open at a parking lot and, who cares? Getting to the murders in Chicago is payback for drugs and gangs fighting for supremacy and control, Black on Black because life has no meaning, killing is the norm where there is no hope to even think of moving out of that environment, and where can they go? so they have to stay there and continue to be part of it, hoping their lives can be spared, it is a revolving door with mirrors.

    • Alma . . . . there is no doubt that what you have written is the absolute truth. What really stands out is . . . “gangs fighting for supremacy . . . Black on Black because life has no meaning, killing is the norm where there is no hope . . .” I also think that taking God out of the lives of the average ghetto resident has fed this mentality of slaughter.

      Not that I really know, but it seems that black citizens were better educated, and less violent back when Martin Luther King was alive. Now we see what we might expect to see in Beirut, or Syria. It is horrible to contemplate.

  4. If there were any marches in Chiraq it would end up in more people dead because they would end up in violence,
    COME ON JESSIE JACKSON, AL SHARPTON, OBAMA, ALL OF YOU MARCH AGAINST BLACK ON BLACK CRIMES, I’m sure you will end up in a dumpster with flies in your mouth.

    • Alma . . . . Congratulations! Your description is poetic . . . “COME ON JESSIE JACKSON, AL SHARPTON, OBAMA, ALL OF YOU MARCH AGAINST BLACK ON BLACK CRIMES, I’m sure you will end up in a dumpster with flies in your mouth.

      Among those you mentioned, I rather doubt that they would “waste their time” in trying to turn around the murderous rampages in Chicago. These people are only to be used as a tool to enrich those who supposedly represent them. When the time comes that Jackson, Sharpton, Obama dies off, I have no doubt that other’s will step up to take their place, and will milk the woes of the ghetto bound black citizens for all it is worth. They do not really wish to interfere in the everyday strife that these black people are experiencing.

  5. Perhaps the vaginas can be sent to Chicago to fight it out with the bros. Its a win-win no matter what.

  6. “Identity politics” is bad enough when it identifies with groups. Now we have them identifying with body parts. There’s a lot of “stupid” going around. Forget about the flu.

    I received an unsolicited email claiming that the NRA was pushing for killing elephants this morning. I replied that the DNC was killing infants.

    • lophatt . . . . I love your reply to the email . . . “the DNC was killing infants.” I hope that shut them up, and that they will cease and desist sending such nonsensical emailings to you again. That was really a great reply!

  7. The Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan was going to the pussy hat march. What are they marching about? I don’t get it.

    • molly . . . . I’m with you. If these women put all that effort into visiting those in nursing homes who have no one ever visit them, helping the reading efforts among disadvantaged children, or any number of worth while causes . . . then they really would be accomplishing something!

  8. Just think of the violence if guns were legal in Chicago. 😉 Yes I’m being sarcastic.

  9. I know that I am an old fashioned sort, but I blush to think of using the word that is on the sign in public. I know that the word vagina is not a dirty word, and I also know more vulgar words describing that female body part than all of you put together, due to my 35 years in a foundry. I just have always been a very shy sort of person when it comes to discussing sexuality in public. I understand that the world is different than it was 30 years ago, but I probably am not. And I certainly would not carry a sign saying things like that in public. I would make that woman a deal, though. If she agrees to sit through an hour of watching videos of actual abortion procedures, I would hold her sign for one hour for her. Seems fair to me.

  10. I’m so sick of the moronic women in the women’s marches. As to the blacks killing blacks I recall at WND web site a book written several years ago about it. I think the percentage of black killings was over 90% by other blacks but no one wants to address THAT

    Liked by 2 people

    • gitardood . . . . little doubt that they do not want to address the fact that “90% of black killings are done by other blacks.” To address that fact head one would fly in the face . . . that all the problems that black people have are “the fault of white people.” So they will stay as far away from that as is Earthly possible.
