BLACK LIVES MATTER: 18 Killed in Chicago Over the Weekend
Black Lives Matter. That's why we have to defund and shot down any efforts to stop mass killings of black people.
18 dead, 47 wounded in Chicago weekend shootings
Four children were among the weekend’s victims, including a 1-year-old boy fatally shot in Englewood, a 10-year-old girl killed in Logan Square and a 17-year-old boy killed in Humboldt Park.
Do we really need to go more in depth here? But this is the bleak farce of the BLM movement.
Four children were among 65 people shot across Chicago this weekend, 18 of them fatally. Three of the children were killed.
This is the stuff ignored by lefties who wail over their killers instead. Say their names. Rest in power.
A 10-year-old girl was fatally shot Saturday night when a stray bullet hit her inside a Logan Square home on the Northwest Side. Lina Nunez was taken to Stroger Hospital, where she was pronounced dead hours later, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office
Nunez. My bad. Her life doesn't matter.
Earlier that afternoon, a 1-year-old boy was killed and his mother was wounded in Englewood on the South Side.
The woman and her child were driving home from a laundromat just after 2 p.m. when a gunman pulled up alongside them in another vehicle and opened fire near 60th and Halsted streets, according to police. The child was struck once in the chest, while his mother, 22, was grazed on the head. She drove them to St. Bernard Hospital, where the child died. The mother was later taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center for treatment and her condition was stabilized.
The medical examiner’s office identified the boy as Sincere A. Gaston. He lived in South Chicago.
Shouldn't his life matter, or is this like one of those Planned Parenthood exemptions?
The current HeyJackass toll is 533 people shot, 87 of them fatally, in the Windy City in June.
If you're keeping track of these things, none of the 87 can breathe anymore.
That defunding police thing is going really well.
Meanwhile, the black police boss of Chicago has some thoughts on the subject.
"I struggle to make sense of the reckless gun violence that continues to take the lives of our young people throughout the city," Supt. Brown said. "What I want to talk about are the guns that we weren't able to get to on time. The guns and the cowards, these evil bastards, behind those guns, that caused the senseless loss of life over the past weekend."
Superintendent Brown said violent offenders need to be held in jail longer.
"They shouldn't get out early," Brown said. "If they get three years do three years. New York did this. LA did this and they are just as liberal as Chicago. Chicago can do this. We can have under 300 murders."
It's okay. We've got better ideas in Chicago.
The group called My Block, My Hood, My City along with several activists and non-profits held a news conference this morning to talk about Hashtag "Hit the Hood" which will start on Friday at 5 p.m. in several different neighborhoods.
In an effort to push this forward, they plan to award $50,000 in peace grants to help any person, block or organization that wants to find creative solutions to curb violence.
The goal is to fund up to $5,000 dollars per request and assist in providing resources for #HitTheHood.
Here's a very creative solution. Lock up criminals. Don't let them out.
Stop and frisk gang members. Use broken windows policing. Flood any area with rising violence with police patrols. Deploy undercover units. You know, the stuff that has historically worked and that's now being banned.
