Anybody Paying Attention?! At Least 2 Dead, 19 Wounded in Chicago Shootings on Monday Alone

Instead of constantly trying to take a swipe at President Donald Trump, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot would be better served if she focused her animus towards the actual criminals who shoot people by the dozen every single day. This is EVERY SINGLE DAY now. When is it enough? Can we please begin to count these shooting deaths as being caused by communism? How far-left do these big city politicians need to go before people begin to admit to themselves that communism is the cause of deaths of millions upon millions of people?

On Monday alone, two people were murdered and another 19 were wounded in shootings across the Chicagoland area. Almost two dozen in a single day, and that could be considered a slow day depending on which day you’re looking at.

An 18-year-old male, identified as Trayvon McMorris, was “standing in a large group…when multiple gunmen exited a white sedan and opened fire,” according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

I asked before, but I’m going to ask a specific question again. How many?

While Lightfoot is too busy castigating Trump for the current mail-in voting debate raging across the nation, citizens in the city she was elected to run are in constant danger. Lightfoot appears to have Trump on the brain more than the people of her city, and it shows.

The other Monday death was that of 29-year-old Kevin Garcia, who was also considered one of those killed during the weekend. Garcia was shot around 1 a.m. early Monday morning by “someone in a black sedan” while he stood on a sidewalk.

Nineteen others were wounded in other shootings, including a 13-year-old boy who was “critically injured” while inside a vehicle. The other people he was with dropped the boy off at a fire station instead of taking him to a hospital.

The boy was among five minors who suffered gunshot wounds on Monday.

Again, how many? It doesn’t matter anymore that Chicago is my hometown. That city — much like New York, Los Angeles, Portland and Seattle — should be ashamed of themselves.

At least five people were killed and another 59 were wounded in weekend shootings across the city.
