Chicago Tribune (August 7)

2018/ 08/ 09 by jd in Global News

Chicago experienced a “weekend from hell, when outbreaks of gunfire killed 12 people and injured at least 62″ Then, “the carnage” continued on Monday. But “gun violence in Chicago is random the way destructive wind gusts are random. You can brace yourself but still not anticipate the location or severity of a blast. Monday easily could have been the quiet after the storm.” Unfortunately, it wasn’t. “At least 10 people were shot in eight incidents Monday on the South and West sides.”

 

LA Times (June 20)

“Each day three or four children under age 17 die and an additional 16 are hospitalized from a single cause: gunfire. In fact… gun violence is the third leading cause of death for American kids between ages 1 and 17, and the second leading cause of injury-related deaths after motor vehicle accidents.” It is “the nation’s shame” that “we know it’s a problem…. We know steps can be taken to address it. But we don’t take them.”
