How much longer are the people of Chicago going to stand by and allow Lori Lightfoot to put their lives in danger.
Father’s Day weekend is one of the summer kickoff weekends and if this weekend was any sign of what is coming to the people of Chicago, they would be better served to stay indoors and out of harm’s way.
By Monday morning, a total of 49 people had been shot, five of them fatally, in Lightfoot’s Chicago.
It Never Ends
We have been warning for months that with the trend we have seen in Chicago, the violence this summer in Chicago is going to be epic, only not in a good way.
In the space of 24 hours, 23 people were shot, two fatally.
And, once again, the majority of those that were killed were younger adults.
At least three of the fatalities were 25 years old or younger.
Not all these victims are gang-related, either, as several of them appear to be random shootings.
For instance, a couple was ambushed walking down the street by three gunmen.
In another one of the shootings, a 21-year-old was shot while driving down the street.
A recent report by the Chicago Tribune stated that 1,587 people had been shot throughout the city as of June 14, a massive increase of 195 people over the same period last year.
This will be one of the deadliest summers on record in Chicago… of that, I have no doubt.
