Murder City, U.S.A.

Democrat-controlled Chicago is as dangerous as a war zone:

A bloody year for Chicago hit a new low this past weekend as 17 people were fatally shot, marking the deadliest weekend so far this year and pushing homicides past the 600 mark for the first time since 2003.
Beginning with 50 killings in January, violence has erupted in 2016 at levels unseen since the 1990s. Even with the end of summer, typically the year’s most violent stretch, no letup has occurred. Not counting Halloween, October saw 76 homicides, 2 1/2 times the 30 killings a year earlier. . . .
The violent final weekend of October pushed homicides to 614 as of midnight Sunday, in excess of 200 more than the same year-earlier period and the most at the 10-month mark since 1997, official Police Department records show.
In addition, shooting incidents for the year are closing in on 3,000, a 46 percent jump from 2,044 a year earlier, according to the department statistics. At least 3,662 people have been shot, 1,106 more than a year earlier, according to a Tribune analysis.
In addition to the 17 fatally shot between Friday afternoon and early Monday, another 42 were wounded. It was the deadliest weekend since 13 were slain and 46 were wounded over Father’s Day. The last weekend in August saw 11 killed and 56 others wounded.

Chicago is home to lots of criminals and Democrat voters.

But I repeat myself . . .
