Oh well, it's only another weekend in Chicago.

Baltimore tried to call a "Cease Fire Weekend".
Sounds like something we'd try in a war zone in Afghanistan it Syria.

‘A lot of nights end up this way’: 7 shot in Lawndale’s Douglas Park

https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/...rzi-story.html

They were three women, ages 19, 22 and 25, and four men, ages 20, 21, 21 and 23. One of the 21-year-old men was in critical condition with a gunshot wound to his groin, police said.



Seven shootings reported this weekend in Baltimore amid ceasefire call

As if in defiance of an organized plea against violence announced for this weekend, police reported seven more shootings — including at least one homicide — in Baltimore in less than 24 hours.

A 32-year-old woman was found sitting in the driver’s seat of her car in the 4300 block of Seminole Ave. at about 1:37 p.m. Saturday with gunshot wounds to her head and chest, a Baltimore Police Department news release said.

I hardly think, in the immediate wake of the tragedy in El Paso, this is a good time to be blaming liberals.

Who do you blame? I guess I should show mine before I ask of you the same. I blame both parties in dc for a lot of violence

It’s worse than the cartels in Mexico or Columbia . How do we fix it ? We have trillions of dollars to break this up. What does this area need to stop killing themselves ?? There are few crazies in the work who attack to kill. We have drug killing - gang killing - what do we need to do to stop the violence ?

What's the point of this thread? I think it's obvious to most people that we have two separate problems:

1. Inner city gang/drug gun violence

2. White nationalist Terrorists

The causes and solutions to each are very different.

That's not a mass shooting. It's gang violence. It's actually not a lot of shootings for a summer night.

There is one problem: no respect for the non-aggression principle.

Fix it within yourself and try to convince others to do likewise.

Violence will occur but you won't be initiating it nor will you be supporting/condoning it.
