t least 42 people were shot, seven fatally, in Chicago over the Memorial Day weekend even as severe storms kept people indoors and 1,200 extra officers patrolled the streets.
The toll was slightly higher than last years Memorial Day weekend, when 39 people were shot, seven of them fatally, according to shooting data kept by the Tribune. In 2017, 45 people were shot, seven of them killed. And in 2016, 71 people shot, six of them fatally, in one of the most violent Memorial Day weekends in recent years.
That is just an unacceptable state of affairs, Mayor Lori Lightfoot told reporters after a Monday ceremony at a Grant Park monument to commemorate the nations war dead.

And she will do what about it?
Above the norm, the norm or below the norm for holiday weekends?
Has anyone done the math to figure out how long it is before there’s no one left in Chicago to be shot?
Next year, 1400 extra officers. Keep the police union happy.
Nothing to see here move along.
Blame Trump and the NRA.
“And she will do what about it? “
The same thing every Dummycrat mayor does in America..blame whitey.
Nothing. Why should she?
Their lives don't matter.
Not in the news because there’s no Whitey to blame.
Despite the best efforts of Planned Parenthood, they seem to be reproducing faster than the rate of attrition. Add to that a paltry 20% homocide solution rate, and it goes on forever.
Have they considered imposing some sort of gun control ...?
Blame whitey, LOL.
But how can anyone be intellectually honest and blame Whitey, when the overwhelming majority of both gunmen and victims, are black?
Or does intellectual honesty just not matter when you are a Democrat and trying to make a political statement?

they were improving until this year.
What I cant figure out is how all those drug dealers and gangbangers are getting their firearms owner ID cards. They just need to close that loophole and that will solve the problem
72 people were shot, seven fatally.
Need more range time.
lather, rinse, reoeat
Imo, as a long-retired LEO, the ONLY thing that will work to greatly lessen the criminal shooting incidents is:
1. STOP making excuses for “crime in the streets”,
2. Round-up & disarm all of the KNOWN gang members,
3. Serve all the outstanding felony warrants & jail the criminals that are caught
4. Indict, try, convict & sentence the violent criminal predators, who prey upon others, to long prison terms.
Bad weather, so the deaths were under. (see second City cop blog. http://secondcitycop.blogspot.com/ )
And she will do what about it?
She will enact strict gun control laws.
