10 shot dead, another 45 left wounded – including 2 police officers.
That’s how many people were shot in Chicago from 5 PM Friday to 5 AM Monday — a mere 50 hours to be exact.
Unfortunately, these types of “bloody weekends” are now the norm in Chicago.
In fact, according to data published by the Chicago Tribune, 497 people have been killed in Chicago as of August 30 — 145 more than all of 2019.
And of those 497 victims of homicide, the majority of them are young, black men.
But it’s not just Chicago where black homicide is skyrocketing.
It’s also taking place in several other Democrat-run cities across the country.
In New York City, nearly 50 people were shot this past weekend — 5 fatally — including a young mother of 3.
And in St. Louis, 2 black police officers were shot.
BLOODY WEEKEND for Black Men in Big Cities.
NYC-At least 46 shot this weekend; 5 Killed, incl a young mother of 3.
CHICAGO-10 Black men killed, 44 more shot, incl 2 Chicago cops & 15-year old boy.

Given the staggering, and ever-increasing number of black homicides in places like Chicago and New York City, along with the fact that 1,000 African Americans were murdered last year as a result of violent crime in just four Democrat-run cities, shouldn’t the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement be demanding new leadership in these places at the local level?
Of course they should.
But it wouldn’t advance their left-wing, Marxist agenda.
So BLM, along with their pals in the liberal media, remain silent as the number of black homicide victims continue to skyrocket in Democrat-run cities across America.
And when they do choose to speak out, they usually blame President Trump, Republicans . . . and those dang ole people from Mississippi.
Supreme Court Overturns NY Cuomo’s Coronavirus Restrictions on Houses of Worship
Religious freedom restored.
The US Supreme Court has overturned New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s coronavirus restrictions on houses of worship, preventing the state from enforcing limits on attendance at religious services.
The decision was reached by a 5-4 ruling on Wednesday night, with recently-confirmed Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett proving to be a decisive vote on overruling the restrictions. Bush administration appointee John Roberts joined progressive judges in voting to allow Cuomo to restrict attendance at religious services.
The ruling justices issued a majority opinion which identified the religious restrictions as a violation of the First Amendment not otherwise applied to “essential” businesses.
Cuomo’s 10 and 25-person occupancy restrictions were decided to “single out houses of worship for especially harsh treatment,” with justices pointing to a lack of restrictions on other institutions. Catholics of the Diocese of Brooklyn and Orthodox Jews had united in a lawsuit challenging the restrictions, which New York has recently sought to walk back of its own accord. Andrew Cuomo had applied no such restrictions to arbitrary businesses allowed to open, such as acupuncture and nail salons. Meanwhile, religious organizations have been required to turn away worshipers at their doors.
It’s not up to governors to dictate to American citizens whether or not they can attend religious services. Some things are simply best determined by personal conscience, as opposed to governmental mandates.
