CHICAGO -- At least 38 have been shot, six fatally, Memorial Day weekend across Chicago since Friday evening, according to police.

Police said two people, a man and a woman, were shot in River North near West Chicago Avenue and North Orleans Street early Monday. It appears the woman was shot in the leg and the man appears to be shot in the back. Both victims were transported to Northwestern Hospital. They were standing in an alley when they were shot at around 2:00 a.m. Monday.

A man was shot during an attempted robbery and a woman shot driving minutes apart early Monday on the South Side. The man, 32, was outside in the 5000 block of South Martin Luther King Drive just after midnight when he was approached by an armed suspect who demanded his bag, Chicago police said. He refused to give is bag up and was shot.

A 16-year-old girl was among five people seriously wounded in a shooting after a fight broke out Sunday morning in Lawndale on the West Side. The group of five, ranging in age from 16 to 33, were on the sidewalk in the 800 block of South Karlov Avenue about 1:30 a.m. when a fight broke out and shots were fired, Chicago police said. The teen was shot in the back, a man and woman, both 21, were shot in the left arm and a 33-year-old man was shot in the face, officials said.

Urban America is unlivable. The people who concentrate there are either too poor, too debased on drugs, too politically delusional or simply too stupid to live anywhere else. This concentration of people will constantly be in political conflict with productive people who live far from them. They urbanites will be perpetually seeking subsidies under multiple guises from the productive. Best if most of these urban areas depopulate and are dismantled.

“Why don’t they go there and offer all of their “simple” solutions to this problem????”

Didn’t they already solve the problem years ago with banning guns in Chicago?

John 3:19-21

And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.”

Give them more guns and ammo, and they’ll depopulate themselves.
