The corrupt demoncrap politicians that have run Chicago for so long simply can not admit they’ve made a mess of things. They have to blame other states for their problems. I’ve always asked, as others have; If the problem is the guns in Indiana, why doesn’t Indiana have the violence problems you have. ..All anyone gets is silence.
CHICAGO (WLS) — A violent Labor Day weekend in Chicago has left seven people killed and another 34 wounded.
In the latest shooting, four men were shot near the King Drive CTA Green Line station at about 11 p.m. Monday night. All four men are expected to be OK.
Davantae Jackson, 15, was among the seven people shot and killed. The teen was supposed to be starting high school Tuesday. Instead, his family is making funeral plans.
Family members said Davantae was lured outside early Sunday morning by someone he thought was a friend who then opened fire, shooting and killing him just steps away from his own home.
“They called him and told him to come outside,” said Alexis Jackson, the victim’s sister. “When they told him to come outside and he was guessing he was going to see his friends,” she said. “And they did what they did to him after they called his phone.”
The shootings occurred as Chicago police increased patrols during the holiday weekend.
Mayor Lori Lightfoot lashed out against Texas Senator Ted Cruz after his tweet about violence in Chicago over Labor Day weekend.
The Republican Cruz said, “Gun control doesn’t work. Look at Chicago. Disarming law-abiding citizens isn’t the answer.”
Mayor Lightfoot fired back, tweeting “60% of illegal firearms recovered in Chicago come from outside Illinois-mostly from states dominated by coward Republicans like you who refuse to enact commonsense gun legislation. Keep our name out of your mouth. “
