12 shot to death over weekend in Chicago and at least 58 others wounded

Chicago's violent spree continues. Over the last full weekend in July twelve peope were shot to death, including a still unidentified 17-year-old boy in Englewood, and at least 58 others were wounded. 

Meanwhile Chicago's ideologue mayor, Lori Lightfoot, continues to talk about fighting violence. Over at Fox Chicago, however, is a reminder that nearly a year ago Lightfoot rolled out a plan, "Our City, Our Safety," to counteract the mayhem, that would send money into 15 neighborhoods. 

Only gun violence is worse, and in some of the areas dramatically so, in most of those areas. 

Lightfoot's plan consists of social programs, not crime-fighting tactics.
