Chicagoland Celebrates Lack of Fathers Day: 6 Dead Among 24 Shot Saturday Afternoon, Sunday Morning

Maybe if these gangbanging mutants had fathers the hellhole that is Chicago might be a little safer. Some leadership from their politicians might help, too.

Two dozen people were shot Saturday afternoon into Father’s Day Sunday across the city, according to authorities.

Of the 24 people shot, six died either at the crime scenes or at local hospitals. The youngest was 16. One of the men killed was an armed man shot by police after he raised a 9-millimeter handgun in their direction after bailing from a moving car, authorities said.

The shootings stretched from 9400 S. Loomis Avenue on the South Side up to about North Avenue and Pulaski in the Hermosa neighborhood.

Read the staggering list of casualties at the link. In a civilized society some people might call this anarchy. In Chicago it’s just another weekend. And we still have an entire day to go. So when are we going to have that “national conversation” about Chicago?

Update: That didn’t take long. The toll of wounded is now up to 29.

    It’s those blasted gun & Bible clingers that are the problem! Rednecks, Tea partiers, all that!

    It is progressives and all my Trayvon Martin sons that will lead the way.

    And despite this, the dear leader thinks that he can do something positive in Syria?
