The skyrocketing violent crime thats plaguing the city of Chicago did not let up over the Fourth of July holiday. Fifty people were shot, including three children, and four people were murdered from Friday through Monday.
These shocking figures are actually an improvement from recent Fourth of Julys, according to Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson.
2016 is shaping up to be one of deadliest in Chicago since the 1990s. 338 people have been murdered and thousands shot since January 1st. In the month of June seventy people were killed. Those figures average out to someone being shot roughly every two hours and a person murdered every ten to thirteen hours.
Adding to the perfect storm, Chicago police stop-and-frisks on the streets have plummeted by ninety percent during most of the year. The Chicago Fraternal Order of Police President, Dean Angelo, tells Fox News his officers are afraid of being called racist, lawsuits or internet videos that might appear to incriminate them.
The ACLU told Fox News in the summer of 2014 Chicago police made 250,000 unwarranted stop and frisks that resulted in no tickets or arrests. The new agreement with CPD is an effort to stop any type of racial profiling.

Don’t you just hate that pr***.
Kinda like new claims for unemployment going up (unexpectedly), but the overall unemployment rate going down.
The gangs that can’t shoot straight!
Baraq was only a latecomer to Chicago.
It’s Hillary who is the born and bred hometown Chicago cutie.
Obviously, Chicago needs stricter and more gun laws to stem this violence.
Could it be the right ones are getting shot?
“.......police report drop in crime”.....
I take that to mean fewer whites were shot.
Read the actual facts here, which in summary states that this was all done with Millions in overtime taxpayer money as a one-time deal to make Rahm look good. Bottom line is the CPD manpower is down by thousands. And this band aid will not work for very long.
Week in Progress (7/3 7/9) Shot & Killed: 4 Shot & Wounded: 48 Total Shot: 52 Total Homicides: 4
Year to Date Shot & Killed: 305 Shot & Wounded: 1738 Total Shot: 2043 Total Homicides: 339
5 dead, 65 shot over the weekend, wasn’t that about right? I guess if only 5 die that’s good news in that democrat hellhole.
It stands to reason that sooner or later the bad guys are going to start to die out faster than they can be replaced.
