This stuff happens all the time. Chicago is particularly violent these days, but it is hardly alone. While one of the deaths – Demario Bailey – may generate some protests, nothing like what we saw in St Louis or New York will occur. Sharpton, Jackson, et al won’t descend on the city. And next week will be just the same. And next month and next year as well. 3 dead, 32 wounded in weekend shootings – Chicago Tribune.
I don’t know why anyone would want to live, work or visit Chicago. (Though I do miss the Art Institute.) Between the high cost of parking, and the low value on human life, it just doesn’t seem worth it to me.
[Demario Bailey] was shot in his chest about 12:40 p.m. along the first block of West 63rd Street during an attempted robbery, police and family members said.
Demario was walking with his twin brother under a viaduct when a group approached and tried to rob the two. Demario tried to step in to protect his brother and was shot, family members said.
I don’t know how you stop this, but I do know that better policing will be needed. Not sure that is possible today. (Why would anyone want to become a police officer today?)
