In Chicago over the weekend, 61 people were shot, 8 of them fatally and two missing teenage boys were found dead in a field late Sunday evening. This is the second most violent weekend this year in Chicago, with 72 being shot, 12 fatally the first weekend in August.
Police Supt. Eddie Johnson was to speak about the weekend’s shootings at 10:30 a.m. on Monday at Chicago Police Headquarters.
Anthony Guglielmi, CPD spokesman said there were three people of interest that were taken into custody in connection with some of the shootings as of Monday morning. Officers seized 83 guns, arrested 29 people on gun charges, and shut down 68 gatherings over the weekend for illegal activity, according to CBS Chicago.
On Sunday, bodies of a 16-year-old and 17-year-old boy were discovered on the edge of Golden Gate Park at 130th and Eberhart, dying from having been shot. The 16-year-old boy was identified by his father as Raysuan Turner. The 17-year-old, however, has not yet been confirmed. Andrew Holmes, community activist in the area said that both boys had been reported missing on Friday.

The bloodshed over the weekend also included two separate incidents that were considered mass shootings.
President Donald Trump has been very outspoken, calling out the leaders in Chicago and their inability to handle the violence properly. During a meeting on prison reform earlier this month in Bedminster, New Jersey, Trump stated, “I guess you have to take it from the leadership.” He added, “It’s called bad leadership.”
Just a month after Trump took office, he said the crime in Chicago was “totally out of control,” and even threatened to “send in the feds.”
“There’s no reason in a million years something like this should be happening,” Trump said.
HUGE: Court Documents Reveal Shot Kenosha Rioter Joseph Rosenbaum Was a Convicted Child Rapist
Convicted pedophile Joseph Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation at the Kenosha riots.
New court documents of the Pima County, Arizona circuit court reveal that Joseph Rosenbaum was convicted of various sex crimes against children in Arizona in 2002.
Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation while rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin last week. He is seen on camera lunging at 17-year old Kyle Rittenhouse, who eventually shot him, claiming he acted in self defense when Rosenbaum attempted to take the AR-15 rifle he was carrying. Rittenhouse attempted to flee the scene, and was pursued by two other rioters, one armed with a gun. He tripped and fell, and when the other rioters assailed him, he shot them both. Rosenbaum and one other rioter were killed, and a third wounded. Rittenhouse has been charged with first-degree murder in the shootings.
Watch video of the shootings and decide for yourself.
Shortly after Rosenbaum was identified as one of the deceased individuals, it became public knowledge that he was on the Wisconsin sex offender registry, for crimes committed in Arizona.

The man who may very well have set off the violent altercation is a convicted pedophile, judging from the court documents that were published Wednesday. A presentence report reveals that Rosenbaum committed a range of sex crimes against several boys from the ages of nine to eleven years old, including outright rape.
More documents reveal the legal proceedings against Rosenbaum.
Rosenbaum would be convicted of two of the eleven total charges.
Some leftists had speculated that Rosenbaum was merely a victim of the criminal justice system upon the revelation that he was a convicted sex offender, claiming he had been merely been railroaded for sexual activity with his 17-year old girlfriend as an adult, or something of the like. The new documents disprove such an assertion, demonstrating that Rosenbaum was convicted for some of the most heinous child sex crimes known to society, including the outright rape of children.
Previous criminal records of parties involved in use-of-force incidences aren’t usually admissible in court cases, but Rittenhouse’s argument of self defense appears more credible when his word is placed against the conduct of a convicted pedophile.
