    "Chicago shootings: 64 shot, 11 fatally in weekend violence

    CHICAGO (WLS) -- Weekends in Chicago have been plagued by violence this summer.

    Chicago police said 64 people were shot, 11 fatally, between 6:00 p.m. Friday and 11:59 p.m. Sunday. That follows a deadly weekend over the 4th of July when 87 people were shot. The weekend before that, there were 63 shooting victims.

    "I've been assessing and reassessing everything the Chicago Police Department has done," said CPD Supt. Daivd Brown. "Just imagine starting a new job and having to figure out historical violent crime in about 10 weeks."

    Six teenagers were wounded in separate shootings between Friday and Monday morning, including 15-year-old Terrance Malden, who was fatally shot Friday in Jeffery Manor on the South Side.

    Statistics from the department attest to the magnitude of the violence; every weekend for the past month there have been at least 63 people shot and at least 11 people killed.

    "Is anybody satisfied early on, of course not, we've got to redouble our efforts every single Monday. It's not just the police department, but street intervention, community-based organizations," said Mayor Lori Lightfoot.

    Well, it's a new week according to heyjackass.com and since the 12th they've stacked up six more bodies in the windy city. The week is young.

    *edit It's seven. I overlooked the one they didn't shoot.

    Black Live Matter think's that's not important. Rioting, looting, and attacking the Police is the real issue they are for.

    I think these were the same numbers for New York City...

    Maybe these two are going into competition now for the most people shot at any given time.

    AOC says it's all because they can't get bread.

    Wonder if they are all griping about the ammo shortage too??
