According to Breibart news, 15 people were shot from Friday into Saturday morning, while two were wounded fatally in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s Chicago this past weekend. Additionally, as ABC notes by Monday morning the tally went up to 23 shootings and 3 more fatalities.
The youngest victim was a 15-year-old boy who was shot in the head and killed while riding his bike on Saturday. The oldest was a 62-year-old man who was shot twice in the chest while sitting on his porch on Sunday.
Did most Americans hear about any of this? Of course not. Instead, most heard about Lightfoot’s “Call to Arms,” as she again made it known once again that national abortion optics are more important and valuable than what’s really happening in the city she is supposed to be protecting.
This past weekend’s gun violence comes just days after Mayor Lori Lightfoot unveiled her new crime-fighting strategy, which includes adding more police officers to high-crime areas and increasing community engagement.
