The summer may be over, but the killing season continues in Chicago.
This weekend, 60 more people were shot.
Sadly, seven of them are now dead.
The Violence Continues
Tragically, until the weather turns, we can expect to continue to see horrific numbers just about every weekend in Chicago.
While the numbers are horrifying, the real tragedy is that young children continue to die in this city needlessly.
This weekend was no exception.
One of the fatalities this weekend was a 12-year-old boy.
The child was found late Saturday morning with a gunshot wound to the head.
It was unclear if he had been killed Friday night or that morning.
Police also found a 54-year-old man dead inside of his car with multiple gunshot wounds.
While September is only 13 days old, there have already been 192 shootings this month, with more than 100 last weekend alone.
Where is Joe Biden’s “strike force?” Where is the accountability for Lori Lightfoot, who is failing this city and its children?
Democrats are outraged that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis wants parents to decide whether their children wear masks to school, yet they say nothing about children being murdered in cold blood every week in the city of Chicago.
It tells you a lot about where liberals priorities lie these days.
