Despite snowfall and bitter cold--which usually dampens violence--this past weekend was a nasty one in Chicago. Ten people were murdered and at least 28 others were wounded. Half of those homicides occurred in a shooting in Roseland on the South Side in what police theorize may have been a home invasion. There was also a double murder in Brighton Park on the Southwest Side.
So far there have been 770 murders in Chicago according to Hey Jackass. There were only 468 in Chiraq last year.
