14 Slain, Dozens Injured in Chicago Holiday Shootings

chicago-policeCHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy says shootings over the Fourth of July weekend that left at least nine people dead and more than 50 more injured included eight incidents that involved police.

During a news conference Monday, McCarthy said investigations were continuing but that officers who fired their weapons all appeared to be justified. The shootings included those in which two teenagers were fatally shot and another in which police shot at a man who tried to run them over with a car.

McCarthy says Chicago is still on pace to end the year with fewer homicides than last year. But he says the number of shooting incidents is up slightly over last year.

    And Chicago has the strictest gun laws…sure stopped this…not. Its not the guns…its the evil people, and they will find and use them no matter what the law is. The laws don’t apply to them in their mind. If the law abiding people would have had a gun to shoot back perhaps less casualties.

      Amen, Brother Harry J, God has forewarned us in these last days in Matthew 26. Obama is the666 he is a deceiver and I am not fooled. Israell is Gods favorite nation Deuteronomy 7:6 and they are warring against the Devils forces in Palestine and Obama is backing the Devils forces.

      God bless Israel as they battle the heathens. I know the NSA is tracking me because I know too much.

      As for us stockpile the 3 G’s God, gold and guns. The dollar will be worthless we are seeing that right now. Stockpile weapons and ammo as we will fight the commie heathens.

      They have been planning the destruction of Israel an Americafor some time. They will come to get our guns but wwe will stand up to these Godless commies.
