Labor Day weekend violence in Chicago leaves 5 dead, 53 injured

Devastating gun violence and indiscriminate brutality have tragically become the norm in the liberal-controlled Windy City, and Labor Day weekend 2021 has proven to be no exception, with five left dead and 53 wounded – including at least eight children – since Friday night, according to the Chicago Sun Times.

Perhaps one of the most heart-wrenching stories to emerge from the weekend’s bloodshed is that of four-year-old Mychal Moultry, who was reportedly sitting inside his father’s home on the city’s south side when bullets pierced through the window, fatally striking him in the head.

Shockingly, the boy was the second child of the same age shot in Chicago within the week, and the second 4-year-old to be killed there this year, as the Sun Times further noted.

In the aftermath of Moultry’s death, Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown implored members of the community to step forward and provide information about who may have been responsible for that incident or any other of those involving kids under the age of 17 over the weekend stretch.

“We need people in the community to come forward,” said Brown on Labor Day,” adding, “This is beyond trusting police. This is about the safety of our babies.”

During the time period of Saturday night through Sunday morning alone, Chicago saw no fewer than 24 individuals shot, with two of the victims ultimately dying from their injuries, according to local outlet WGN.

In one of those deadly incidents, a 23-year-old motorist was gunned down while stopped at a red light early Saturday morning in what was described as a drive-by shooting committed by a passenger in a second vehicle.

Democrat Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, known for having a fraught relationship with law enforcement and also for working to slash police budgets during her tenure, nevertheless asked those living in neighborhoods “under siege” from gun violence to work collaboratively with officers to “really stem the tide” on the devastation, according to the Sun Times.

Lightfoot reportedly promised to unveil some new strategies “in the coming days” to address the gun violence epidemic gripping her city, but, unsurprisingly, no specifics have yet to emerge, and with murders in Chicago currently on pace to set a 25-year record, the time for mere talk has clearly long since passed.

Lightfoot is not even good for picking cotton. She needs to keep her face shoved in somebody’s crotch.

I’ve made $84,000 so far this year working online and I’m a full time student. I’m using an online business opportunity I heard about and I’ve made such great money. It’s really user friendly and I’m just so happy that I found out about it. The potential with this is endless.

Lightfoot does not want to go after illegal guns . The bad guys who are doing most of the shootings do not go by gun laws. You can make all the guns laws you want, But bad guys will not go by any gun laws.
