The Chicago Tribune reported that a man, “who lives on the West side of Union Avenue,” in Chicago was awaken by gun fire. It was around 2 a.m., when along with what he described as seven or eight shots, he also heard doors slamming and the screeching of tires.

What he heard was the attempted murder of a 31-year-old female trying to escape a situation in her GMC Yukon. She was shot in the head as she tried to speed away. The woman was taken to “University of Chicago Medical center, where she was in critical condition Wednesday morning.”

Oh, you must have thought I was reporting on one of the 74 weekend shootings in the Windy City this past weekend. No. This was one of the additional 16 shootings, including seven more murders committed from Monday to Wednesday, making a five-day total of 90 shootings and 19 murders.

As Maureen O’Hara said to John Wayne in the classic Western, “McLintock:” “That’s gotta be some kind of record!”

Well, it may not be a record, but I’ll bet it’s close. And it was the most violent weekend in the city in two years.

To solve this latest crisis of “gun violence,” police Chief Eddie Johnson added an additional 430 officers to patrol just five city districts on the South and West sides of the city. “Those numbers will increase to 600 by the weekend,” he said.

And this is supposed to solve … what? Fact is, it won’t solve anything beyond a possible temporary tamp-down of the shooting rampages.
