(RepublicanWire.org) – Even in the cold of winter, the bloody carnage on the streets of Chicago does not slow down.
So far on this holiday weekend, 21 residents of Chicago have been shot and five are dead.
According to Breitbart:
“Twenty-one people were shot, five of them fatally, during the weekend in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago.
“Breitbart News noted three people were shot and killed between Friday evening and Sunday morning alone, and there were 12 shooting injuries during that early part of the weekend as well.
“By Monday morning ABC 7 / Chicago Sun-Times / WLS reported two additional shooting deaths for the weekend and numerous more shot and wounded.”
Among the shot and killed are a man who was fatally shot inside a house and another man who was shot and killed while sitting in a vehicle.
According to recently released statistics from the Chicago Police Department, 797 homicides occurred in Chicago in 2021. That made 2021 the deadliest year the city has experienced in a quarter-century.
There are no signs that the record-high murder rate in Chicago will be reduced this year.
