This is horrible. Why don’t these black lives matter to Mayor Lori Lightfoot, the Democrats and BLM? Because they are full of BS that’s why! They would much rather attack President Trump, at the behest of the racist Democrat Party. The POTUS must intervene. The pro-criminal mayor of Chicago is unwilling and incapable of policing her city. She has also refused to deploy the National Guard to protect her citizens, since that would require her to work with President Trump. Horrible!

Chicago violence erupts during holiday weekend, at least 67 shot and 13 killed

By Fox News, July 5, 2020

Chicago‘s bloody gun violence continued through the holiday weekend as more than 67 people were shot and at least 13 killed, including a 7-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy.

Nine of the victims were minors, with only the two fatalities so far, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

The girl, identified by her family as Natalie Wallace, was outside her grandmother’s home at a Fourth of July party in the city’s Austin neighborhood around 7 p.m. when a vehicle pulled up and three men got out and started shooting indiscriminately.

Wallace was shot in her head and pronounced dead after she was rushed to a hospital, police said, according to Chicago’s FOX 32.

A 32-year-old man shot during the same attack was in fair condition, FOX 32 reported.

“Tonight, a 7-year-old girl in Austin joined a list of teenagers and children whose hopes and dreams were ended by the barrel of a gun,” Mayor Lori Lightfoot wrote on Twitter. “We cannot grow numb to this. We are making progress in slowing shootings, but we have to do better, every single one of us.”

A 34-year-old woman, a 31-year-old man, and a 20-year-old man were also killed earlier Saturday, WLS-TV reported.

The 14-year-old boy was killed in the city’s Englewood neighborhood, in an attack that left three other people dead and four wounded, including boys ages 11 and 15, the Tribune reported.

Four men had walked up to a gathering and started firing shots. They fled and have not been arrested, the newspaper reported.

Sunday saw further reports of shootings and deaths from the Independence Day celebrations, bringing the total to over a dozen deaths and many more injured.

Among the dead are a 21-year-old who was shot to death at 2 a.m. and a woman who was the sole casualty on the West Side, with 5 men injured.

The West Side shooting occurred as the group was setting off fireworks on the sidewalk, according to police. A 20-year-old woman was shot in the head and abdomen and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

David Scott, 24, and another victim, 20, were in an argument with a male suspect in a Riverdale parking lot before the suspect walked to a home and shot the men through the door. Scott was taken to Christ Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
