SAD: Chicago's Bloody Father's Day Weekend Sees 46 People Shot...

Sup Travellers?! This Father's day weekend was a great weekend for some and a not so great one for others. This weekend was one of the bloodiest weekend ever in Chicago. It doesn't top last year's Father's day weekend because last year was much more bloody. According to reports from the Chicago Tribune, 46 people were shot during this Father's day weekend in the city of Chicago. Read on.

According to the Chicago Tribune, between Friday afternoon and Sunday, a total of 46 people were shot in the city of Chicago, and seven of the people shot died. The stat does represent a sort of improvement: The Tribune reports that around this time last year, those numbers were 53 and nine, respectively. And the Atlantic Wire notes that a deadlier weekend has already occurred in 2013: January closed with eight deaths. The youngest victim, 16-year-old Kevin Rivera, apparently tried to flee from a gunman on a bicycle late Saturday. The dead teen's family was just two weeks away from a move from their sometimes dangerous Hermosa neighborhood.


This is really sad. It seems as though Obama's power when it comes to gun control is diminishing. But as a wise man once said, "Guns don't kill people, people do". I don't think that the guns need to be controlled I think the people do. Something really has to be done about all these shootings, not only in the US but in the world. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed
