Chicago on Monday: Sixteen shot in eleven hours, five are killed

posted at 10:01 pm on January 27, 2016 by Matt Vespa

Monday proved to be another bloody day in the Windy City, where 16 people were shot in an 11-hour period. Five were killed and 11 wounded, according to the Chicago Tribune. You can read about the tragic details relating to the victims and their families there. The publication noted that the city had gone almost two days without a shooting; this violently shattered that calm.

Sixteen people were shot in an 11-hour period Monday, including two along a Safe Passage route in the West Englewood neighborhood, according to authorities.

The shootings – from Cragin on the Northwest Side to Roseland on the Far South Side – left five dead. Those shot ranged in age from 16 to 56. Several survivors were left in critical condition.

The burst of shootings came after no one was reported shot in the city through most of the day Sunday into early Monday

[…]

At least 228 people have been shot in January, 37 of them fatally.

In the first ten days of the New Year, more than 100 people were shot in Chicago. Given this recent string of shootings, we shouldn’t expect them to slow down any time soon.

Damn! If only those people who are buying van loads of guns in Indiana, where they have no background checks, would stop selling those guns in Chicago. /

But, they’re Honor Students or some other such nonsense

Check out Heyjackass.com for the daily body count and some excellent commentary. So glad I moved away from that Blue Heaven.

Chicago has the most repressive gun control laws in the nation, so these murders are obviously the fault of Indiana. AmIRight?

Obviously white cops are masquerading as young black men and shooting actual young black men. Like in the old westerns where white guys would dress up as Indians and go on a rampage.

Good thing Hustler Eric Holder sold El Chapo the guns instead of Obama’s “sons.”

Lazo said the Latin Kings and Two-Six gangs have been contributing to much of the bloodshed in the neighborhood. Gang signs were apparent, drawn on mailboxes, written on store windows and etched in the sidewalk.

Gang chimps are so pathetically stupid.. Dumber than a parking meter.

There has been talk now and again during the campaign about building a wall.Might rethink about where.

Darn, I was going to move to Chicago until this happened.

Dollayo on January 27, 2016 at 11:17 PM

Please tell me why GOP politicians are ridiculing the Democratic political monopoly of all these failed cities.

Fantasy perhaps. But to the extent shootings are the result of illegal immigrants, Trump has been saying at his rallies that the very first to be deported with be the gangs.

Although it is not yet confirmed it appears that all victims and perpetrators were Diverse.

Matt, God love ya but this is a 30 comment post. That is because Hot Air Nation cares about this as much as BLM Chicago.As I posted earlier – it’s The Garbage taking out The Trash. There is no money in it for the race pimps.We are worn out. The most truthful tool to help black Chicago identify the source of their misery is a mirror.

Black moms arming their useless progeny, hoping to cash in if a white cop kills them. But they’re all armed and they kill each other before mom can file a lawsuit against the city?

AppraisHer on January 28, 2016 at 3:01 AM

Perhaps if the Chicago PD gave away free guns to all registered voters in the city, the City might have a chance to survive? It is apparent that the course they’re on now is just not working.

Another Drew on January 28, 2016 at 3:27 AM

Black kids are a cash crop in the north, much like cotton used to be in the south. The more blacks you had out in the field, the more money you could make. The only difference now is the lawyers get a cut of the harvest.

He was a good boy. Just 14 and had only been arrested and convicted 48 times. He was going to turn his life around and start college next week to become a brain surgeon or a lawyer or a dentist or a CPA or etc.

Sorry.
Anyone who has seen two episodes of “The First 48” knows that in 4 out of 5 instances the victim is precisely the same kind of dirtbag thug as the murderer. The scenario of the murder is almost always a crime in progress – a drug deal gone bad, a robbery, a turf battle – and the only difference between the parties involved is in who gets off the first shot. And “their families” are just like them and are in fact the incubator in which they developed.
Sorry.

As far as I know the president has not said anything about this. I live thousands of miles away but I have never heard of anyone going to Chicago for vacation ,,, do they have any tourist industry. Its probably as popular as Iran, Vietnam or other 3rd world chess pools. This is a city to avoid.

cozmo on January 27, 2016 at 10:17 PM

Maybe. About as effective.

Safe Passage Routes
Safe Passage is designed to provide safe routes for students while traveling to and from school. Each identified school will have a uniquely tailored strategy, which will take into consideration that school’s community, popular modes of student transportation, arrival and dismissal times, and student residences.

Actually a great city to visit. Lakefront is beautiful, world class museums, good theater, and some of the best restaurants in the country. Big time pro sports with a few very engaging teams to watch.

Now all of this is far away from where all the fun is on the south side. And of course the city’s finances are going to hell in a hand basket. So just don’t move there – visit, then leave.

A friend suggested a really great business (and marketing) idea.

Have a drive thru liquor & ammo store with a ‘drive-by shooting range’ as you exit the property.

Now who would have thought this brilliant idea would take root and flourish in the Windy City?
