An astounding 63 people were shot over the weekend in Chicago, but let’s all worry about inanimate objects like statues.
Oh, and don’t forget about the eclipse! If I wanted to see what it looks like when the sun can’t be seen, I’ll wait for night time. All distractions to hide what’s really going on.
Over the weekend, nine people were murdered and 54 others were wounded in shootings across the Chicagoland area — but, statues!
This past weekend’s total is the largest number of people shot since the extended Independence Day blood fest when 102 people were victims of shootings in Chicago.
Here’s an example of this past weekend’s violence:
About 6:25 p.m. Sunday, 22-year-old Damian Rowdan was killed and two other people were wounded in a shooting in the Lawndale neighborhood on the West Side. They were on the porch of a home in the 3000 block of West Polk when someone opened fire from a passing SUV, police and the medical examiner’s office said. Rowdan, who lived in the East Garfield Park neighborhood, was shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene at 7:01 p.m. A 17-year-old boy was shot in both legs and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, and an 18-year-old man was shot in the right thigh and taken to Stroger Hospital. They were both in good condition.
Apparently, this level of violence is completely acceptable to both local authorities, federal authorities and everyone who claims to protest for "peace." Since the feds went to Chicago to aid local authorities in combating the violence going on in the city, it seems as though there has been no change in the numbers. If anything, there has been an uptick in violence since government supposedly stepped up their efforts in attempting to stem the slow but steady genocide happening in the Windy City.
But, go ahead. Let’s all worry about statues and eclipses. The only way anything substantial is going to happen in Chicago is if people in general begin to get their priorities in order.
