    How horrible! Just think, if this was a "school shooting", people would be up in arms about it. (no pun intended)

    Apparently the number isn't great enough to draw protests. The mayor did order 300 more cops to leave their desk duties & hit the street.

    This is so tragic. Chicago is spread out and certain parts of the city are pretty desolate and dangerous (likely gang turf wars/drug trafficking), and really unsafe places to raise children. Chicago occasionally is referred to as "Chiraq" aptly named at the moment because there are extremely dangerous parts of the city, almost like a war zone. I hope that LE are able to apprehend all perp(s). Here is a map of shootings in Chicago, http://crime.chicagotribune.com/chicago/shootings Jmo/
