New Chicago Mayor - Same Problem: 34 Shot 5 Killed This Weekend

New Chicago Mayor - Same Problem: 34 Shot 5 Killed This Weekend!!
Chicago has a new mayor, but the city's gun violence is still as bad as ever. 34 people were shot so far in Chicago during Memorial Day weekend - and 5 of those people died.

Lori Lightfoot became Chicago's first Black female Mayor last year, when she replaced Rahm Emanuel. And the city's hopes are high that she'll do a better job with the crime problem.

Yesterday was her first real test - on whether she can control gun violence on a warm holiday weekend.

Mayor Lightfoot had a plan. Unfortunately, the mayor's plan didn't work.

The plan was to add an additional 1,200 officers on patrol and a special mass transit detail for trains and bus lines. Officers also patrolled high-traffic areas like beaches and popular downtown spots like Michigan Avenue as part of the city’s Summer Mobile Team.

By Sunday evening of Memorial Day weekend, Chicago police had responded to the shootings of 34 people, five of whom died of their injuries, officials said.

“Multiple weapons have been recovered and detectives believe our offender opened fire on a group of people with a TEC-9 semi-automatic machine pistol. Two victims suffered fatal injuries and two others are being treated at an area hospital,” Anthony Guglielmi, a spokesman for the Chicago Police Department, said.

After daybreak Sunday, police were called back to the 1300 block of West Hastings Street, where they’d responded just a few hours earlier. Guglielmi said officers had been to the housing community multiple times to disperse large crowds that had gathered.

“A review of police and security cameras show several hundred people were gathered prior to this incident,” he said.

Some of us Black folks is so filled with hate of self and it's not only in the U.S.A it is all over the Globe. And it seems like for what ever reasons they are always expressing their anger by killing and destroying their brothers.These Black people need to wake up and liberate them selves from mental slavery! They need to come to the understanding that united we stand tall and divided we fall hard,

Sadly, among Black People are Niggas and Flies that we have to despise . They are the ones doing the killings, and always want Black People to come and protest for them when they get what they deserve from the authorities. Only Black People deserve to be defended when they are wronged by the authorities.
