123 Shot Dead In Chicago Over Summer

Total Is About Double The Death Toll In Iraq

CHICAGO (CBS) ― " An estimated 123 people were shot and killed over the summer. That's nearly double the number of soldiers killed in Iraq over the same time period.

In May, began tracking city shootings and posting them on Google maps. Information compiled from our reporters, wire service reports and the Chicago Police Major Incidents log indicated that 123 people were shot and killed throughout the city between the start of Memorial Day weekend on May 26, and the end of Labor Day on Sept. 1.

According to the Defense Department, 65 soldiers were killed in combat in Iraq. About the same number were killed in Afghanistan over that same period.

In the same time period, an estimated 245 people were shot and wounded in the city.

The South Side's Englewood District, which includes the Englewood and West Englewood neighborhoods on the city's South Side, fared the worst over the summer. A total of 14 people were shot dead there, and 48 were shot and wounded.

The next highest totals came in the Grand Crossing District, which includes the South Shore, Woodlawn, Park Manor and Grand Crossing neighborhoods on the South Side, 12 people were killed and 31 were injured.

Also hit severely by gun violence over the summer was the Ogden District – which includes the Near Southwest Side's Lawndale and Little Village neighborhoods – where 10 people were killed and six were injured.

The South Chicago District on the Southeast Side saw nine people killed and 11 injured, almost all concentrated in the South Chicago and Avalon Park neighborhoods at the north end of the district."

This is one of the things about Obama and his ilk that tasks me. In most large, liberal, and lazy cities and states, approximately 98% of the ones doing the killing and being killed, are minority members. The black family in particular is so very broken it doesn't seem possible to put it back together again. So his people are exterminating themselves, as we all know so this simply can't be a surprise to him, and what does he do or even suggest to remedy so intolerable a dilemma?

Why he went to work for the Acorn Group where they taught him how to revive dead men and teach them to vote. "Community organizer" my ass, this is the VAST majority of what the man did, and for a damned good living, too. His own brother is living in a tin and cardboard shack, and he has the unmitigated gall to say he possesses a distinguished record and with tons of experience to boot.

Experience at what? Besides awakening dead men, I mean.

And, guess he didn't do such a good job "organizing" them minorities. All they seem organized enough to do is rob, rape, and murder, but of course thats all Bush's fault anyway. The situation in Chicago gets worse and worse and the dopey voters keep electing the same people who can't solve the problem.

Can't make this shit up.
