Neither covid-19 nor riots slow Chicago's shooting season

10 days after the annual Memorial Day kickoff, Chicago's unofficial shooting season is off to a great start. Memorial Day fell on May 25 this year, the earliest possible, so that should boost this year's shootings. May shootings were up 54% over last year, which has overwhelmed the morgues.

The Chicago Tribune reported, "More than 20 people were shot in Chicago over 12 hours Tuesday through early Wednesday as gun violence remains high across the city for the second week in a row.

"In two of the overnight shootings — on the Far South Side and South Side — three or more people were wounded, according to police.

"Shootings started spiking in Chicago over the long Memorial Day weekend, when at least 50 people were shot. The next day, 28 more people were shot, including a 5-year-old girl standing with her family.

"Last weekend, as looting and disturbances spread across the city, more than 80 people were shot, nearly 20 of them fatally. At least 15 of the fatal shootings occurred Sunday, requiring the Cook County medical examiner’s office to call in extra pathologists to conduct autopsies."

The Hey Jackass site reported shootings in May 2020 were considerably higher than May 2019 with 78 gun murders (up 53%) and 314 gun woundings (55%). Chicagoans are not necessarily bad shots as they usually aim to wound. It is a local custom.

June is on track to be just as bad with May 31-June 4's tally at 21 shot and killed, and 91 shot and wounded.

In West Virginia, we hunt deer in the fall.

Protesters say it is inhumane.

    1. Oh hell, not a single peep 'bout 75y.o. Norman Bledsoe being piss-pounded in a nursing home by a black pos who videoed himself doing it. "Please stop please stop" fell on deaf ears throughout the media.

      But you know it's all about racial injustice.

  2. Between,these shootings, which are mostly black on black, and abortions, which target young black females, the real racists(Democrats), are completing Margret Sanger's wish to eliminate the "Negro Race" (her words, not mine)

    1. The deaths John above describes, and the situation in Chicago tell anyone with an ounce of intelligence that only certain black lives matter. The ones that can be politicized.

      Sickening the way the left successfully controls a narrative. Joseph Goebbels would be jealous if he were alive today.

  3. Thank you so much!! Thank you for remembering me!!

    Remember me? I was supposed to be the big news story this year, but I've been feeling very, very neglected lately.

    Why, it's almost as if I was being used as the latest idea for "getting" President Trump - and when that proved to be a failure, I was simply discarded in favor of the next thing.

    I feel SO used...

    1. None matter to the Black Lives Matter people. They now want to defund police departments in order to turn inner cities into shooting galleries.Let the good times roll!

  6. Black lives matter is like a four year locust plague. They only appear for 6 months or so every presidential election year from June thru 1st Tuesday in November. Useful idiots?

  7. Look for Chicago to adopt the NYC policy of counting shooting deaths as Chinese Virus deaths.
