Chiraq: 10 dead at least 28 wounded over weekend

Abandoned home, Roseland
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.

The good news is that ChiRaq murders are unlikely to get to 800 this year unless the bad guys go all out on the remaining two weekends.
