CHICAGO (AP) Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy says the city has logged its 500th homicide of the year.
McCarthy issued a statement Friday calling the milestone a "tragic number that is reflective of the gang violence and proliferation of illegal guns that have plagued some of our neighborhoods."

For future reference, the trick I’ve found is to search for one key word in the article title, like “homicides” in this article’s title, for example.
The search is one of several things that needs development here. I hate using Google when I really want to find something.
What an impact our dear leader has had as a community organizer in his home town. He has a track record the scumedia ignores
I dare a lot of these people are not good people (gangbangers).
Some of us hadn’t seen it so glad it was posted again.
They hold the handgun like that because that’s the way it comes in the box.
I use the search function to find articles that likely don't exist....
Me, too. I don’t understand why anyone gets upset that an article has been posted more than once. Who cares? If you’ve already seen it, keep scrolling. Some people are wound way too tight!
I heard that you have to hold your pistol sideways in Chicago to properly correct for windage.
In NYC, Bloomie takes credit for low homicide rate, yet no one in Libdom will hold The Rahmfather accountable for this shameful milestone.
When the gun free hellhole called Chicago can go 1 full year without and gun deaths by non-police then I might listen but until then Molon Labe.
500 peeps is equivalent to my kids’ whole grade school.
Where’s the outrage? Doesn’t this upset anybody in Chicago?
How many by legal gun owners?
The question should be, “How many are NRA members”
Surely they have THOSE stats.
Cook County’s gun CRIME laws are among the laxest in the nation.
They are fighting over guns????? noooooooo they are killing over DRUGS!!!!!!.
I say put up walls around these slay zones, drop a bunch of machetes from helicopters and put it all on PPV cable.
Time to think out of the box here.
That’s what I’m talking about.If these idiots ever figure out that shooting people is serious work and not a social event/photo-op,then we’ve got a problem.
How long do you think these”Pros”would last in a shoot-out against someone with serious skills?If they send these guys to take away our guns,well-I almost pity them.Almost.
I did a search for a thread I posted in 07 using a word in the title with no results found. I did the same search using one keyword search and it was at the top of the list
