One week ago I had this exchange concerning crime in Chicago and the DNC convention:

Less that one week later:

The meat and potatoes of it:

two teenagers were shot Saturday night as hundreds of youths streamed through downtown streets, prompting a heavy police response that resulted in more than a dozen arrests. The boys, 16 and 17, were among the large unruly crowd about 9 p.m. in the 100-block of East Washington Street when shots were fired, police said. The younger boy was shot in the right arm, and the other boy was shot in the left leg. Both were taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where they were listed in fair condition.

On the bright side nobody was killed at that incident but throughout the city 35 were shot and 8 killed this weekend past

The statement of the new mayor just elected is a doozy

In no way do I condone the destructive activity we saw in the Loop and lakefront this weekend. It is unacceptable and has no place in our city. However, it is not constructive to demonize youth who have otherwise been starved of opportunities in their own communities.

And others are even funnier”

But in fairness democrats in Chicago like Mr. Peters have found something worth condemning, WALMART

You know the more I think about it there isn’t a more appropriate place for Democrats to hold their convention.

  1. John Ruberry says:

    Now you know why Brandon Johnson won. As I posted here last month, in an apocryphal story about Illinois Democrat and Dem presidential nominee Adlai E. Stevenson, “Every thinking person in America will be voting for you,” someone remarked to Stevenson. The governor replied, “I’m afraid that won’t do—I need a majority.”
