Chiraq: 20 shot, two fatally, in 16 hours

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.
