Another weekend, more shootings in Chiraq. And more silence from BLM.
MyFoxChicago reports that 14 people have been killed and 61 others wounded in shootings across Chicago so far over the Fourth of July weekend.
Ten of the weekend’s victims were minors, and two of the children died from their injuries.
This was as of 11:30 last night. Don’t be surprised if the shooting numbers go up by Monday morning. They always do.
Mayor Lori Lightfoot tweeted about the violence last night:
Tonight, a 7-year-old girl in Austin joined a list of teenagers and children whose hopes and dreams were ended by the barrel of a gun.

She went on:
“As families gather to commemorate the founding of our nation, we must ask ourselves: is this who we are as a city or as a country? We cannot grow numb to this. We are making progress in slowing shootings, but we have to do better, every single one of us.”
Seems that one person, Mayor Lightfoot, should be doing better. Remember this promise? “Mayor Lightfoot Lays Out Grand Plan To Fight Gun Violence”
The shooting and murder statistics in Chiraq speak quite loudly. And they have for YEARS.
Chicagoans voted this womyn into office. They’ve voted in demorat mayors since 1931. I got just one thing to say:
