19 people shot across Chicago in first 12 hours of Halloween weekend, 6 fatally

ChicagoSix people were murdered across Chicago during the first 12 hours of the Halloween weekend while 19 total were shot.

According to WMAQ-TV, the first shooting of the weekend happened around 4:45 p.m. CST Friday. By 4:45 a.m. — just 12 hours later — 19 people had been injured as a result of being shot.

Chicago, which is one of the most violent cities in the U.S., typically sees high rates of violence on holiday weekends. But seeing 19 people shot in the first 12 hours of a holiday weekend might be “above average” for even Chicago. Last year, the Windy City saw only 26 people shot — with two deaths — during the entire Halloween weekend, according to Breitbart News.

    They put the Boo in Halloween didn’t they. Well long as nobody does anything to stop it or to put emphasis on it, unless the innocent were killing the bad guys then O would be all over it, nothing will change.

    As Trump says what do you have to lose voting for him? Your life isn’t getting any better. Maybe a Law and Order president instead of a Lawlessness and Disorder president were in office your lives might really matter.

    Only 19? I was hoping those animals would kill each other off and save us the ammo.

  • Smitch

    The politicians of Chicago must be a Proud bunch! Great record!

  • Netencho

    Well…. I will just say….. goes to show you…. gun control does not work…. and only creates more destruction. Chicago is a NO GUN ALLOWED AREA, NO GUNS FOR CIVILIANS….. THE CRIMINALS HAVE ALL KINDS OF GUNS… OBAMA’S PUPPETS, AND PETS. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6e6a1e14ed1dfde40cb6ea785a46a9fe71615e2b9d923a7caa2f340436401dfb.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f96b33638affee4dde3d409b39f622d66fad2a5e12137a744d02e946b0379e26.jpg

    This is what happens when a city has been run by corrupt Democraps for over 50 years and has some of the most stringent gun control laws in the nation.

    Amazing how that place polices itself, thugs killing thugs, love it, keep up the good work BOYS!

    • Tiger

      If only it were just thugs killing thugs then I would send them money for more weapons, but sadly innocent people die.

      • Rodney Steward

        True, sounds a lot like war doesn’t it, but that’s basically what it is there and the strictest gun laws in the country!

        • Tiger

          It is a war zone. I remember in Jacksonville Florida going into the inner city to work for Shand’s hospital and it was just that. Drunks and druggies staggering around even inside the hospital. Rapes of nurses that nobody wanted to publish very dangerous the entire place. I finally left, I had been Specialty Dialysis nurse, three of us working ICU and ER. Horrible job, hated every minute of it.

            Florida is one place that a LOT of crime is kept quiet, one of my best friends son, and his wife that is from the area, and their 4 month old daughter went to visit her family there! So her parents kept the baby while they went out to eat, and on their way to the car from eating, a car came up, robbed them and then put a gun under his chin and said F you and blowed his head off for no reason! Cuban drug gangs that’s just as bad as Chicago but not reported! My friend went down there to talk with the law and they told him there was really nothing they could do, and that it was basically an everyday thing! But that state makes it’s living off of vacationers! I hate Florida now!

          • Tiger

            My Lord Rodney what a terrible story. But yes they hide things in Florida because they want the tourist dollars. I have had nurse friends robbed at gunpoint doing Christmas shopping at a big Mall, I have known children who were forced out of their schools into inner city schools to equalize the school situation and those children raped or beaten, Jacksonville, Florida has the same crime as Chicago. Yes they hide the gang problems, the drug problems and the Muslim problems.

            I now live in the boonies and far away from the cities. All armed here, all Patriots and all outlaws.

          • Rodney Steward

            That’s good that U live out for your safety, and Trent was killed 2 years ago, knew the boy all his life, he was 29 years old!! Something else that is kept quiet, is the muslim problem there!

          • Tiger

            Oh you bet. Florida filled to overflowing with them and they own major cities. They are arrogant and pompous. Such a hugely sad story it sickens me. Poor family of his. There are killings daily across Florida of the same sort. I knew an officer on a site who had the same thing happen to his son in Miami at his home no less, getting into his car when the guy came up to rob him, he gave the guy everything and the guy killed him in the same fashion. The killer never found.

            Everyone needs to be heads up everyday.

  • paul filing

    Solution–build a fence around effected area, give a gun to everyone will 1000 rounds and stand back. When the smoke clears, arrest those still standing. Think of the welfare payments that will disappear.

    • Tiger

      LMAO just got a visual throw Hillary in there also and Obama.

  • Walter Flatt

    AND OBAMA WENT GOLFING SPENDING MILLION, NO HELP FOR BLACK AMERICA.

    IF TRUMP WOULD ONLY USE THE BELOW IN AN AD. IF NOTHING ELSE, JUST TELL THE PUBLIC TO GOOGLE IT AND LISTEN.

    GOOGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015, LISTEN TO ALL & THIS EXPLAINS WHAT GOD FEARING PEOPLE MUST DO. EMAIL TO ALL YOU KNOW

    So, the jungle bunnies are at it again. I don’t care if you are white, brown, black or yellow, if you are involved in this type of bull manure, then you are nothing but an uncivilized jungle bunny.
    So then, 19 people shot, and only 6 killed. You goofs can’t even shoot straight, but then what can be expected from shooters who don’t know how to properly wear a ball cap, wear their underwear on the outside of their pants, wear the butt of their pants down at their knees, dress like clowns, stand on a corner making body contortions, as the listen to rap crap, then call it culture, and the left-wit politicians, who are nothing but political cowards and prostitutes, sit on their butts, and attempt to blame “white society.” Idiots, one and all!!!

      I think when you were a liberal things were very different. I thought I was a liberal when I was younger but I didn’t really understand. Being a liberal now means anything goes and our country is being destroyed. It’s hard for me to watch.

      • used_to_be_a_liberal

        Don’t be fooled by this anything goes stuff. The reality is that there is nothing LIBERAL about a “liberal”. These so-called liberals for the most part do not realize that they are being used to push a so-called “liberal progressive” agenda. Most of these protest groups such as black lives matter, occupy wall street, etc.. are just useful idiots who are filling the role of Hitler’s Brown Shirts. These fools will be thrown under the bus just as soon as the so-called progressives under the likes of the Hilda-Beast, and Obama, and their puppet master George Soros take control under the guise of “Progressive Socialism” which is just a new name for Nazi Style Socialism. Every “progressive” piece of legislation, program, idea, comes right out of Hitler’s Nazi Germany. Along with the ways and means of placating a population, until the absolute power structure is in. Then look out.
