    102 shot, 15 fatally, in Chicago over July 4 holiday weekend

    102 shot, 15 fatally, in Chicago over July 4 holiday weekend

    The violence plaguing Chicago made international headlines Wednesday, after a bloody Fourth of July weekend.

    Of the 102 people shot since Friday night, 15 have died. Police said most of the shootings happened Monday night on the South and West sides of the city.

    “You just destroyed somebody’s family,” one of the victim’s relatives, John Davis, said. His uncle, 56-year-old Tyrone Burdine, was fatally shot Tuesday evening in front of his home, with children narrowly escaping the gunfire.

    “Here comes this car speeding through the alley, shooting. My mom could have got killed, my auntie’s kids could have got killed. They don’t care,” Davis said.
    Why?

    Is all of Chicago a war zone, or just certain places?

    What should be done about this?

    Certain neighborhoods.

    I am always amazed when people try to argue that it isn't really that bad, that South Dakota is more dangerous than the South Side of Chicago.

    Stay away from Chicago, it's a failed society. It's on a death spiral.

    15 dead probably should not surprise anyone.

    How many shot and killed on an "average" weekend?

    Take South Dakota any time over Chicago. Was just in N. Dakota. I hope ND stays that way.

    Seems it was a higher than average weekend.

    I did hear that the gun violence in Chicago is down so far this year compared with past years.

    What to do about it?

    Seems that it would take the national guard... I thought Chicago was supposed to be a gun free zone?

    Candidate Donald J. Trump thought it was such a problem, he promised to fix it.

    Of course that was when he was a candidate...free to lie as need be.

    Today, Trump's fix-it-day-one promises are as faint as the furthest 1000th Point of Light.
