8-year-old girl dead and 10 others wounded in Chicago mass shooting

There was another mass shooting in Chicago. 

Last night, in the Back of the Yards neighborhood on the Southwest Side, an 8-year-old girl was killed, and ten other people were wounded. Of the wounded, three were children, including two boys--a one-year-old and an eight-year-old--and a nine-year-old, whose gender has not as of yet been reported.

Police arrived on to the scene after a ShotSpotter alert. ShotSpotter is a controversial gunfire detection system hated by the left. 

Chicago's new progressive mayor, Brandon Johson, campaigned on cancelling the ShotSpotter contract. He extended the contract into September, which means it will be in place for the Democratic National Convention in August.

What a city...

Beyond Chicago's city limits, Cook County is plagued by a woke George Soros-funded so-called prosecutor, Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx. Fortunately, for law-abding citizens, she chose not to run for a third term. The Democratic nominee for that post, Eileen O'Neill Burke, is expected to be an improvement over Foxx, but she doesn't take office until December.

As for Illinois, last autumn, the pro-criminal SAFE-T Act, which eliminates cash bail, went into effect. Violent crime rates typically go down as the temperatures fall--now they are headed up.

Chicagoans should prepare for a rough summer.

Correction April 15: Initial media reports said the victim, whose identity, Ariana Molina, is now known, was eight years old. She was nine. There mass shooting is being called "targeted" and it's believed to be gang related.
