The carnage continues in Chicago. Over a 16 hour period yesterday and early this morning 20 people were shot in Chiraq, including a 12-year-old-boy. Two of these shootings, both in the Austin neighborhood on the West Side, were fatal. A young couple was shot in the West Loop in a car chase that started on Lake Shore Drive.
Next week Chicago plans a series of "Put the Guns Down" rallies, the third year it has done so.
Of course the gun violence will continue despite the dog-and-pony-show. I suggest instead a "Kick the Gangbangers out of Chicago" movement.
