Mayor Brandon Johnson was going to fix everything in Chicago by reaching out to local communities.
Well, that is not exactly working out very well for the new mayor of Chicago.
During his first summer as mayor, we are still seeing high volumes of gun violence in the city every weekend, yet nobody seems to care on the left side of the aisle.
Through Sunday afternoon, there were a total of 30 shootings that had already taken place in Chicago.
Of those, six of them were fatal, bringing the total number of murders to that point to 328, reported Breitbart.
In one shooting, a 29-year-old male was shot in the head while driving his car on West 21st Street. Once the victim was hit, he lost control of the car, with the car flipping on its side after it had crashed.
Not all of the details of all the victims have been released, but it is more of the same. Random shootings, gang activity, and this growing trend of people firing into large gatherings on the street.
That is what happened on West 54th Street, when a suspect just opened fire from an alley, hitting three people.
One teenager was among the fatalities, having been shot on West 81st Street late Friday evening. He was taken to Comer Children’s Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Another teenager, a 13-year-old boy who was just riding his bike, was shot on East 67th Street. Thankfully, he was only grazed and not seriously injured, reported ABC News.
The funny thing in all of this, actually, not so funny, is that there is not a single Democrat in office that has talked about the nearly three dozen bodies that were hit with bullets this weekend in Chicago.
This has become accepted violence to them, simply because the right boxes are not checked in these crimes.
