Holiday Weekend Leaves 15 Dead in Philadelphia and Chicago

Philadelphia is making a hard run at Chicago for murder city of the country.

This weekend, the final holiday weekend of the summer, violence erupted in both cities.

By Monday morning, they had combined for 15 more murders.

Just Not Safe

Between Friday and Sunday night, Chicago had 44 shootings.

Of those, seven people were killed.

Among the shooting victims was a 15-year-old boy.

He was shot on the street by four other men, with authorities stating that 45 rounds were fired at him.

Somehow, he survived the barrage and is listed in critical condition at the time of this report.

In Philadelphia, shooters were far more accurate.

The city saw 27 shootings in the same period, with eight people winding up dead.

One of the more senseless killings started with an argument at a chicken eatery, with a 19-year-old man being killed in the incident.

So far this year, Philadelphia has logged 364 murders and 2,440 shootings.

The city is right on pace with last year’s 562 murders.

Philadelphia Mayor Kenney cannot wait for his term to be over, recently stating, “I don’t enjoy the Fourth of July, I don’t enjoy the Democratic National Convention, I didn’t enjoy the NFL draft — I’m waiting for something bad to happen all the time.

“So I’ll be happy when I’m not here — when I’m not mayor and I can enjoy some stuff.”

Maybe, just maybe, he should not have turned Philadelphia into a sanctuary city and turned the city over to thugs.
