CNN Silent as 15 Shot in Gun Control Capital Chicago Over The Weekend
The fake news media loves to focus excessively on tragedies that can divide us and be used to further take away our rights. The New Zealand Mosque shootings has dominated the news cycle for days while another deadly weekend in the Windy City has been largely ignored.
The Chicago Sun Times reported on the tragic but all-too-familiar display of senseless gun violence:
“Three people have been killed and at least 12 others wounded in shootings across Chicago since Friday evening.
Friday night saw three people shot, one of them fatally; eight people were shot and one killed Saturday; and four people have been shot on Sunday, one of them fatally.
A double shooting Sunday afternoon left a man dead and a boy wounded in the Gage Park neighborhood on the Southwest Side. They were driving at 1:20 p.m. in the 2600 block of West 55th Street when another vehicle pulled up and someone inside started shooting, Chicago police said.
The man, 21, was shot in his head and later died at a hospital, police said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office has not released details about the death. The boy, 16, was shot in the shoulder and treated at the same hospital, police said.
In another fatal shooting, a man was killed and a woman wounded early Saturday in the Avalon Park community on the South Side.
Bud Clarke, 34, and a woman were arguing with a man in the 8400 block of South Stony Island Avenue, authorities said. The argument turned physical and the man, 46, fired shots at them, police said. Clarke was struck in the chest and the woman, 51, in the ankle.”
The city of Chicago celebrated “low” levels of violent crime in 2018 but still posted a murder rate higher than Los Angeles and New York City combined. The clueless leaders of the city credit anti-constitutional gun seizures and more federal gun control enforcement for this “success.”
“The correlation between gun seizures and gun arrests and the decline in homicides and shootings just simply cannot be overlooked,” Superintendent of Police Eddie T. Johnson said to reporters last year.
“Not only have we recovered more guns and made more gun arrests than we did in previous years, but we’ve also had more federal gun prosecutions. When people talk about the fact that we recover more [illegal weapons] than New York and LA combined, it’s not because we’re that much better than them, it’s because we have that much more volume of illegal weapons in this city,” Johnson added.
“There are too many guns on the street, too many people with criminal records on the street, and there is a shortage of values of what is right and what is wrong,” said Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who offered little more than cheap platitudes in response to the gun violence epidemic in Chicago.
The mainstream media and Democratic Party focus excessively on violence in far-away lands like New Zealand to further polarize society and divide individuals to weaken America.
They ignore violence in the homeland, particularly in Chicago where there are strong gun laws, because it does not suit their anti-American agenda. To the fake news, black lives apparently do not matter.
