The violence in Chicago has taken over the city for weeks now. This past weekend 79 people were shot and 15 of those individuals died.
Two of the individuals who passed away were minors. A 7 year old girl was shot in the head on Saturday night and died. The other minor was a 14 year old boy who was shot in the back and pronounced dead at the hospital.
In June Chicago reportedly had a 75 percent increase in crime and 78 percent increase in murders compared to June of the previous year.
Chicago Police had added an additional 1200 officers for the holiday weekend in an effort to help combat the violence on the streets.
Mayor Lightfoot posted a tweet regarding the violence.
“Tonight, a 7-year-old girl in Austin joined a list of teenagers and children whose hopes and dreams were ended by the barrel of a gun. We cannot grow numb to this. We are making progress in slowing shootings, but we have to do better, every single one of us.”
– Mayor Lightfoot
Mayor Lightfoot seems to be struggling to keep the violence down in her city. She seems to have put more effort into fining places of worship for holding services during the coronavirus pandemic than capturing the criminals who are destroying the streets of Chicago.
