Chicago Is The Deadliest City In America
Guns are banned in Chicago by the way.
At least 82 people were shot and many killed on Fourth of July weekend, in Chicago alone.
Where is the talk about this? Guns are already banned in Chicago, do you think it has helped? Or made things worse? People can no longer protect themselves.
CHICAGO – Police are dealing with the fallout from some unexpected fireworks over the past few days in Chicago. Eighty-two people were shot, 14 of them fatally, over the long Fourth of July weekend, according to the Chicago Tribune. The string of incidents kicked off in the afternoon on Thursday.
Five of the shootings involved police, reports CBS Chicago, and two male teens were killed by officers in separate incidents.
In the most recent fatal shooting, an unidentified 44-year-old woman was shot at a barbecue around 12:30 a.m. Monday in the city’s Morgan Park neighborhood, according to the station. She was shot as she leaned into a car in a parking lot and was pronounced dead at the scene.
“There is clearly much more work to be done,” said police spokesman Martin Maloney.
Dozens of others were wounded in shootings throughout the holiday weekend.
The list is enormous and the stories are vast. One thing is for sure, Chicago is the most dangerous city in America.
