111 Shot In Chicago Over Father’s Day Weekend, 3-Year-Old Among 14 Killed. Are We Still Defunding The Police?

Published

Defund the police” has been one of the Left’s rallying cries of late. More and more, cops have embraced the “stay fetal” method of law enforcement. America needs to look no further than Chicago to see what less effective and less aggressive policing looks like in practice.

Over the Father’s Day weekend, Chicago’s gang members and their fellow criminals worked overtime. The final tally: 14 dead and 97 more wounded.

Obviously, it was one of the worst weekends in many years in the Windy City. How bad? This weekend’s total almost equaled the three previous years’ Father’s Day weekends…combined.

The indispensable HeyJackass has the specifics.  Bolded entries represent homicides.

Did you notice all the multiple-victim incidents of (typically) gang members shooting multiple people, sometimes unintentionally? After all, Hollywood doesn’t teach the fundamentals of a good shooting position and marksmanship.

And yes, that was a 3-year-old murdered at about 6pm on Saturday. That one garnered national publicity.  From the Sun-Times:

A 3-year-old boy was shot dead when someone opened fire at his father while they were driving Saturday evening in Austin.

The toddler was struck in the back about 6:25 p.m. when someone in a blue Honda pulled behind the black SUV the boy’s 27-year-old father was driving in the 600 block of North Central Avenue and fired several rounds, according to Chicago Police Chief of Operations Fred Waller.

A police source said the father was believed to be the intended target of the shooting.

The father drove the boy to West Suburban Medical Center in Oak Park, Waller said, but the boy was pronounced dead shortly after arriving.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified the boy as Mekay James. He lived in Skokie.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot called the shooting “a heinous, unconscionable act of cowardice” and said the boy “had his whole life ahead of him.”

Second City Cop, a locally well-known and well-read blog run by a Chicago cop and his retired cop father, shed a little light on the father’s background.

The father is a known gang banger, felon and probable shooter in a few cases. He knew he was a target. You know why he had his kid in the car? Because he thought it made him less of a target….you know, a human shield. That gamble didn’t work out. The three-year-old was just the youngest of multiple child juvenile victims – 13, 16 and 17 were some others who were killed. And not a single one by the police that everyone seems to hate and blame, evidence to the contrary notwithstanding.

Will “triple digit” weekends like this one become the “new normal” in Murder City, USA?  Stay tuned as temperatures rise and the “defund the police” push gains traction among the Democrats who rule America’s biggest cities. Meanwhile, with more police officers more reluctant to, well, police (see: Ferguson Effect), gang violence will continue to escalate along with inevitable calls from Democrats that “we need more gun control!”

Note: The body count from HeyJackass! is higher than what some media are reporting for a simple reason:  Chicago’s pols don’t count those wounded in “non-Chicago” jurisdictions such as on the Interstates, or on state- or county-owned properties. That’s one way the Democrat plantation owners massage the numbers in their efforts to claim that violence in their city is (marginally) less than it actually is.
