On the Southwest Side, five people were shot, one fatally, in two shootings in the Little Village neighborhood.

isn't that a typical weekend for Chicago? I think it's awesome how well the gun laws are working there

So I think its time to take that ridiculous billboard on I-12 down (or at least move it to I-110 and reword it - North BR Murder Rate...)

I know this sounds insensitive but what what point does this stop being "news"? It seems to happen all the time.

i saw a report on MSNBC this week that the murder rate was down bigtime since last year

then one commentator interjected how it's likely due to a late summer

I wonder how many of the funerals Barack and/or Michele Obama will attend? Lots of victims who would look like their son(s) if they had any. Of course the shooters also would look like other sons, if they had them.

It shows a real lack of organization in the community, imo.

So murder rates were down because the "criminals" were locked inside from the snow?

It's up now that its warmer and the ice melted?

God it makes the.. people.. over there committing these crimes sound like fricking animals

There are very strict gun laws in Chicago. There is no way this actually happened. Gun laws placing restrictions on law-abiding gun owners solve these problems.

The media has to be lying. This could not happen anywhere with strict gun control laws.
