Chiraq: 5 dead and at least 40 wounded over weekend

Abandoned home in Roseland
Thunderstorms and hot weather plagued Chicago this weekend, as did the usual dose of violence. During that weekend five people were shot to death, two on the Southwest Side, one in Englewood, and two others in Roseland, the site of my latest urban exploration blog post.

At least forty other people were wounded.

Last week during his acceptance speech, Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump said of the Chiraq carnage, "In the president's hometown of Chicago, more than 2,000 people have victims of shootings," which is something you won't hear about at the Democratic National Convention.

A critic is someone who never actually goes to the battle, yet who afterwards comes out shooting the wounded. See the link below for more info.
