7 dead and at least 36 others wounded over weekend in Chicago, including ninth mass shooting of the year

It was yet another violent weekend in Chicago, seeing seven people killed and at least 36 others wounded. 

There was a mass shooting, likely gang-related, in the Back of the Yards neighborhood on the Southwest Side. One girl, a nine-year-old, was killed. Ten others were wounded. It was the ninth mass shooting in Chicago this year, if the city was a state, it would trail only California in the number of mass shootings. 

Illinois is the land of the no-cash bail SAFE-T Act and Cook County, until December, has a George Soros-funded catch-and release so-called prosecutor. 

Weekends like this past one are the end result of that.
