Generally, we see the violence in Chicago start to die down as the weather gets a bit colder, but that is not happening just yet.
This past weekend, there were three dozen shootings over the weekend.
Half of them occurred on Friday night, including the shooting of a 13-year-old boy.
Most of the time, these violent weekends are gang bangers and drug dealers killing each other off, but there are always a few cases where the violence impacts innocent civilians.
This appears to be one of those weekends.
The boy that was shot was left on a park bench to die.
Another man was shot on a train, and yet another man was shot in a tavern after an argument broke out.
This is every weekend in this city, yet chances are that Lori Lightfoot will get re-elected.
It is tough to be empathetic with the people of that city when they continue to elect these people into office that do nothing to stop crime.
