Chiraq: June deadliest month so far in 2016

Will July be even worse?

It's easy to understand why the Obamas aren't coming back to Chicago.

From ABC Chicago:
The city of Chicago saw 72 murders last month, according to crime data released by Chicago police Friday. It is the most of any month so far this year.

There were also 361 shootings in June and 447 shooting victims. Halfway through the year, there have been more than 300 murders and more than 1,600 shootings and 1953 shooting victims.

Chicago police say they've made changes to try to combat the violence with special patrols at beaches and parks. They have also added officers in more high crime areas they have expanded bike and foot patrols and re-vamped their overtime system.

This is almost 1.5 Pulse massacres. The LibDems have the answer - more gun control, meaning more restrictions on the legal purchase of guns. Gun control is like "cow bell"; you can never have enough.

Interesting how the more the politicians hamstring the cops the higher the murder count goes, but they never seem to make the connection. So we can expect the body count to continue to mount in Chiraq.
