And that’s just so far, there will be more tonight. And it happens every weekend. One might almost think ignoring it is racist…
At least 27 people have been shot — seven of them fatally — so far in gun violence across Chicago over the Labor Day holiday weekend.
The number of fatal shootings so far has already surpassed the total from last year’s Labor Day weekend, when four people were killed and 23 others were wounded in citywide shootings.
On Sunday, a 15-year-old boy was shot and killed in Austin on the West Side.
Officers responded to a ShotSpotter alert about 2:19 a.m. and found Dovantae Jackson in the 5100 block of West Washington Boulevard with gunshot wounds to the leg and back, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.
He was pronounced dead on the scene, police said. He lived in the same block where he was shot.
But Tariq’s figured it all out:
White supremacists on their way to Chicago for #LaborDayWeekend to carry out a series of covert shootings, that will mysteriously go unsolved, yet ultimately be blamed on “Black culture” when the reports come out Monday that “80 people in Chicago were shot this weekend” pic.twitter.com/VkBjM93moD
