42 wounded, 4 fatally, in Sunday shootings across Chicago

Road accident

CHICAGO: A burst of shootings over the weekend left 12 people dead and dozens more wounded in Chicago, the latest evidence of runaway gun violence in the third largest U.S. city. "Our souls are burdened".

It's clear that the Chicago Police Department is not trusted with the mass genocide that's happening on the streets of Chicago. What happened this weekend didn't happen in every neighborhood of Chicago, but it is unacceptable to happen in any neighborhood of Chicago. Residents said after the shooting that the situation is so bad, children are being kept indoors for their safety.

"Considering Rahm Emanuel has been mayor since 2011 and murders have gone up, what we've seen is a mass genocide in the streets of Chicago", Caldwell said, adding that unless President Trump intervenes, the only way to mitigate the violence would be to vote Emanuel out of office.

"It's no secret that we had an unacceptably violent weekend", Police Superintendent Eddie T. Johnson said. Giuliani, referring to him as "Jerry", called him a "policing genius". "If [the shooters] shoot you they don't even run ..."

"Chicago murders are [a] direct result of one-party Democratic rule for decades", Giuliani also tweeted. Giuliani also falsely claimed that Chicago had "63 murders this weekend". But he said gang members and others arrested on gun charges aren't dealt with harshly enough. More than 1,700 people have been shot in Chicago this year. "It's the same people pulling the triggers". We know who they are and we continue to send a message that it's OK to commit these crimes by not doing anything as a community.

All 73 people were shot between 3 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. Monday, according to police.

Pappas worked for 30 years as a constable, according to Texas Commission on Law Enforcement records. Acevedo told reporters that evidence indicated Pappas put a lot of planning into the alleged crime.

Three or more victims have been wounded in seven of Sunday's shooting incidents, including a single shooting in the South Side Gresham neighborhood left eight people wounded, including four teenage girls.

Chicago saw fewer homicides in 2016 than in 2017; 650 and 771 respectively.

Nevertheless, Chicago´s official murder count, at more than 320 killings so far this year, was the highest in the country and far eclipsed those of America´s two largest cities - NY and Los Angeles.

Emanuel regularly advocates for greater restrictions on Second Amendment rights as a method to reduce violent crime.

"Let me be clear: I am a proud Democrat and I do not agree with Mayor Guiliani's political views and I certainly remain opposed to the misguided, divisive tone and policies of Donald Trump".

As for Mayor Emanuel, Ford said, "He must take away the thought that Chicago is a Trump-free zone because taxpayers deserve to have the president come in bring resources to the community".
