    Horror as 69 people are shot, six fatally, in dozens of shootings over bloody Chicago Memorial Day weekend

    Chicago began the unofficial start of summer over Memorial Day weekend with dozens of shootings that killed six people, contributing to a spike in violent crime in the city this year.
    69 people were shot in total over the holiday weekend, according to The Chicago Tribune.
    The police were bracing for the holiday weekend, with Superintendent Eddie Johnson, in his first major test since being sworn in last month to head the beleaguered department, putting more officers on the street in the hopes of stemming some of the violence.

    There was a strong police presence in some of the most violent neighborhoods on the city's West Side and South Side. But there were still dozens of people who were shot in the most heavily patrolled areas of the city.
    The state police, too, were out in force, deploying more troopers to area expressways due to a spike in fatal shootings on such thoroughfares this year. A state police spokesman said the weekend ended without any shootings on area expressways.
    Among the homicide victims were 44-year-old James Taylor and 39-year-old Johan Jehan, who were killed in two separate Monday night shootings, The Guardian reported.
    25-year-old Mark Lindsey was fatally shot Friday night in Ashburn, 27-year-old Garvin Whitmore was fatally shot early Saturday evening in the Fuller Park area, and 25-year-old Damien Cionzynski was fatally shot early Saturday morning in a gas station, according to The Chicago Tribune.

    The roads didn't escape the violence, though. A 15-year-old girl, Veronica Lopez, who was a passenger in a vehicle on scenic Lake Shore Drive on the city's North Side was fatally shot early Saturday.
    Her mother Diana Mercado was quoted by The Guardianas telling reporters: 'I just want my baby back, she was everything.'
    A woman was struck and killed by a car on that roadway early Sunday while trying to escape muggers, police said. Her death wasn't among the six homicides, but it could later be classified as such if the suspects are caught and charged with murder, they said.

    Authorities told CBS Chicago most of the victims were in a 'strategic subject list' - people the most likely to be involved in a shooting.
    First Deputy Superintendent John Escalante told NBC Chicago: 'As we've said before, it's about 1,500 people that are driving the violence. Those are the people we're trying to concentrate on.'
    During the 2015 Memorial Day holiday weekend, 12 people were killed and 44 were wounded, according to The Chicago Tribune.

    No real loss. Build a wall around those shitty neighborhoods and let them walk around with hyenas on chains like they do in Nigeria. If they can't abide by the rules of civilized man, let them govern themselves. Make it a prison without bars and save us taxpayers money.

    Million blacks in Chicago. Most are honest hard working people. Cant blame them all for what a few criminals and gang bangers do. And blacks are the victims in almost all cases.

    Dems have been in control since the 1930's. When they ask locals who's to blame, they say the GOP and racism.

    Don't you think 69 shootings are a bit much?
