Four men are dead among the at least 26 shot throughout Chicago since Friday, capping off a violent weekend that culminated with the warmest day of the year so far.

As temperatures crept toward 70 degrees Sunday afternoon, DNAinfo Chicago reports five people were shot, including a 17-year-old boy injured in the 1500 block of South Millard Avenue.

The Sunday afternoon shootings pushed the number of injured and dead to 26 by DNAinfo’s count—which included reports of gunshot victims who sought treatment at area hospitals independent of a crime scene.

The fatal shootings started Friday, where 33-year-old Kevin Sanders was killed in the South Chicago neighborhood, according to NBC Chicago. Police News Affairs say Sanders was found shot multiple times in the torso about 11:10 p.m. in the 8700 block of South Burley Avenue.

Later that night, an angry crowd of about 100 residents from the apartment complex where Sanders was killed surrounded the front door of a building where the alleged shooter had holed up. The Tribune described the shocking scene, where Sanders’ alleged killer had reportedly been shot in retaliation. The suspect was taken in to police custody.

Shooting incidents continued throughout the weekend, even as people gathered Saturday in Federal Plaza downtown for a vigil to end gun violence. Fox Chicago reports the vigil was one of many held around the country that day.

    How does this city have more violence than Detroit?

    • So CAL Snowman

      People actually live in Chicago

      • MBlanc46

        It’s got three or four times the population.

      • a multiracial individual

        Yea, I just looked it up. Detroit has like 3x the rate per 100,000. Insane.

  • Mark Randolph

    I have a great idea to fight the Taliban overseas. We should round up all the gangbangers in big citys and drop them by parachute all Taliban areas!! Remember the old expression; Kill two birds with one stone.

  • Jefferson

    4 homicides in just one weekend. Where I live, we average 4 homicides in 1 year. But than again I live in area where the percentage of Bantus is significantly less than in Chicongo.

    • About 78% of America’s counties log zero homicides in a given year, and 3% of America’s counties have about 75% of America’s homicides in a given year.

      • brengunn

        I read that stat somewhere else today, too. Pretty damning.

        • The__Bobster

          I bet I know the demographic breakdown of the 3%.

        • Now, to be fair, almost all of those homicide-free counties are low population counties, and almost all if not all of the high homicide counties are densely populated urban areas. But we do know the racial breakdown. We also know that the Second Amendment is more of a reality both legally and in practice in the 78%, while it’s almost a dead letter in many of the 3% counties.

      • 48224

        Wow….that’s quite a stat. If you have the source, please post it.

    • brengunn

      Chicongo

      That is a great amalgamation of words. One of the better puns, I think, both pithy and catchy.

      • The__Bobster

        I use either that one or Chimpcago.

        • brengunn

          Chicongo is better, it rolls off the tongue. With Chimpcago the imp sound breaks up the word, making it less phonetically accurate and sort of a mouthful.

          • Lars

            Sh*tcago rolls off the tongue also.

    • 48224

      “Chicongo”….love it!

  • 4 dead, 26 others injured in one Chicago weekend, almost no news stories about that.

    3 dead, more than 100 others injured at the Boston Marathon terrorist attack, and the media run with that 24/7, that is, until they find out the doer is non-white (if that turns out to be the case).

    Why?

    Must not clue people in about black crime.

    • So CAL Snowman

      It’s kind of funny how the MSM completely rubs black people’s noses in the fact that they do not matter to America by systematically failing to report black crime. It’s hilarious actually, the media in this day and age CANNOT report on black crime because to do so would shatter the carefully constructed liberal glass edifice that is America.

      • The__Bobster

        Oh, the MSM report Zulu crime; they just don’t identify the perps as Zulus.

      • bigone4u

        Like you say a lot of black crime doesn’t make the news. I think it’s because black criminal acts are often stupid and petty, like blacks beating each other up over a cigarette butt laying on the ground. White crime is more intelligent, like a well planned embezzlement or bank robbery. It’s more newsworthy than black crime.

    • O’reilly Turncoat

      Media driven stereotypes are bubbles about to be burst.

    • LastBastionOfHope

      The funny part is the media accepts black crime as 100% normal with a “that’s what they do” attitude. Blacks are not smart enough to realize the left are the real racists with no standards for them.

  • Just another day in Sh*t-Congo.

  • fakeemail

    Finally, some good news.

  • bigone4u

    The libtard press, especially Huffington Post, normally loves stories involving gun violence in order to push forward the gun confiscation agenda, but they never talk about race in that reporting. Detroit is so identified with black violence that stories about shootings there are not reported lest we have to confront the black penchant for savagery. Chicago violence will be the next to be ignored. Only relatively rare gun violence involving whites will make the news.

  • brengunn

    It’s a jungle out there!

  • The__Bobster

    As temperatures crept toward 70 degrees Sunday afternoon,…….
    ___________

    See, it’s the weather, people!

    • bigone4u

      I guess blacks hibernate in winter like bears or something.

      • NYB

        The Zimmerman trial is scheduled for the summer. He’ll be acquitted and another excuse for a riot will be born.

    • NeanderthalDNA

      Oh my God! Creeping toward 70 degrees?! Well no wonder man! Those poor sweating youfs!

      Wow. Like how requiring someone to have a picture ID to vote is tantamount to putting up insurmountable obstacles. Those poor persecuted Blacks can’t be expected to get free picture ID’s to vote! Way beyond their capacities. You evil whites are so racist!

  • Luca

    “As temperatures crept toward 70 degrees Sunday afternoon, …five people were shot”.

    Clearly the problem is Global Warming. Oddly, it only seems to affect those with sub-Saharan DNA..

    If only we had more tax money for after-school programs.

    • MBlanc46

      It’s surely not global warming. Sunday was only the second decent day we’ve had since the first of February.

    • As in that hot broiling 70 degrees? Funny, I always thought that was the ideal outdoor temperature.

    • Alexandra

      Their reasoning is that heat makes people grumpy.
      As if that explains black criminality. Yeah, I get grumpy in the heat, but I’m not out busting caps in people’s rear ends. I just turn on the fan and play a Sims game and cool down.
      I’ve heard that blacks tend to hibernate in the winter…so of course when the weather warms up they’re going to be out, and TNB will abound.
      I hate hot weather…but 70 degrees is actually comfortable for me. 75, you’re pushing it. I’m more of a cold-weather person and I oftentimes wonder if that comes from the tiny bit of Amerind ancestry I have (there was an article on this site about that a while back).

      • MBlanc46

        It’s not that the heat makes people grump, although it does. When the temperature is in the twenties and thirties, and it’s windy and snowy or sleety, people are discouraged from being outside, where the possibility for gang shootings is greatly increased.

    • dogbone

      Reptiles thaw at 70

  • Shhcago Pundit

    How is this news getting past the firewall, when we know this area has the most and most restrictive gun laws in the world. Come to shhcago and bring a stick to a gunfight.

  • Anon12

    Rush and all the rest of the talk show hosts talk about how black on black crime is the worst of all. Killing each other is just awful they say…….They like to bring that up at every opportunity since it is a liberal city and liberals run it….they only care about bashing liberals and do not give a whit about how Whites are suffering from black crimes….

    .Nary a word about black on White crimes and how prevelant that is……

    • NeanderthalDNA

      I detest the Repugnant noise machine and the faux conservative white morons who gulp its vomit down.

      Repugnants are every bit as involved in White Genocide as the Demoncrats and more hypocritical, if possible.

    • LHathaway

      TY

  • MBlanc46

    I don’t see what the excitement is about. The blacks and (to a lesser extent) Hispanics kill 400 or 500 of each other every year. So this is pretty ordinary for a weekend.

  • Jenkem Huffington

    I can’t wait to see what happens the first day it hits 90. These savages get more and more feral the closer the climate is to their natural habitat.

  • Secret Tribunal

    Failure to blame White privilege for black gun violence has been deemed a Hate Crime.

  • Anon

    Two things.

    1. Most violence is done with knives, clubs and improvised weaponry. By violence, what I really mean are killings. Since guns are only a fraction of such violence, talking about them way, waaaay understates the level of killing. It also is a subtle attempt to turn people anti-gun. “Oooooh…..26 people were shot….something needs to be done about guns”. As if those people would not have been killed if there were no guns. And never mind the several hundred people stabbed, beaten, even hacked to death in the same time period.

    2. The reason WHY guns aren’t so popular as a tool of murder. Lol, three quarters of the victims survived. Which is typical. Handguns are designed for self-defense. It wasn’t always so but today’s handguns and ammunition are specifically designed to induce what is known as nuerogenic shock. More commonly known as “stopping power”. Basically, the desired effect is to stun the assailant. Killing them is secondary. Why? Because you can’t have both stopping power and killing power in the same small package with current technology. It’s a small piece of metal being shot out a tube…not a death ray. There are limits of physics and biology involved. It just so happens that such a small piece of metal, when designed around killing (usually by inducing cutting that leads to bloodloss) sacrifices stopping power. Of course, a highly skilled shooter could put a shot in the brain or directly into the heart, dramatically improving the kill probability. But few, nearly zero criminals, have such skill….especially under stress. Want better? You need an assault rifle. But that is neither portable nor concealable.

    The point I am getting at. Whites prefer guns because we are interested in self-defense. Non-whites, although they use guns, vastly prefer a cheap butcher knife, hammer, crowbar etc. They enjoy killing. And these things are better at killing than guns are.

  • PesachPatriot

    Gun violence in chicago? I don’t understand why, they have such strict gun control laws….it must be Al Capone or some amish butter churners running amok and causing all this trouble. We need to get Elliot Ness on the case right away.

  • LastBastionOfHope

    I don’t think we’ve had 4 homicides in a decade where I live. But my town being 96% white had NOTHING to do with that. Not at all. Nope. Obviously everything is racist. That’s my scientifically-backed conclusion.

  • Does anyone notice that there are NO attempts to enforce the strict gun laws in Chicago when it comes to black gangbangers? Why is that?

    Yet, I’d more than bet that any law-abiding gun owner there who didn’t follow the city gun laws to the ‘T’, would be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

    But, then again, we wouldn’t want to anger the black community…

    • MBlanc46

      Of course there are attempts to enforce them. They usually discover the gun after the perp has committed the crime.

  • Howard W. Campbell

    The media must be burying the story that Hunter and McKenzie are driving up to Chesterton, Indiana; hopping on the South Shore to Chicago and capping a few aspiring rap stars (and future neurosurgeons) before running back home to Munster or Valparaiso. If this were ever to happen, it would be on every media outlet known to man 24/7 for 6 months. This would fall in the same category as all those white boys who rape black women every year. (It happens more on “Law & Order” than in real life).

    I’ve had a Chicago cop tell me in no uncertain terms that they profile cars from Indiana for guns. (A lot of people who work in Chicago live in NW Indiana). Wyoming and South Dakota are awash in guns, but don’t seem to have a lot of murders. Hmmm.. it must be warmer in Chicago. Gee Mr. Obvious, I never made the connection.

    • Cops who patrol black urban areas have a good reason to profile white people driving around the ghetto. They’re often only there to buy dope.

      • LHathaway

        As someone who lived in black neighborhood, I think that’s very true. No one ever defended me as being a victim of profiling. Quite the opposite.

      • dogbone

        Any white who goes to a black neighborhood to buy dope is a dope. They will get robbed, raped, and beat up in that order.

        • Especially if the white travels through territory of a gang that is a rival to the gang whose members are his drug hookup. If he only goes through the territory of the same gang of his own hookup, he’s probably going to be okay because he’s a known customer.

  • gemjunior

    Wow, they are really getting more and more desperate for pitiful excuses…. “It APPROACHED 70 DEGREES!!!!!?????? These “journalists” or stenographers are really some of the most craven people for doing the evil will of their corporate scum media masters with an anti-white agenda.

  • [Guest]

    >>>As temperatures crept toward 70 degrees Sunday afternoon…

    Awwwww, man! The temperature is creeping toward 70 where I live. Excuse me while I run out and riot, loot, rape, and murder.

    I’ll be back when the temperature creeps back down and I become civilized again.

    • chuck_2012

      they beez good chlluns

  • Tanner

    Why is this even against the law?

    Why isn’t some type of bounty offered for the ears?

    I don’t get it.
    It seems as if these shooters are doi8ng a public service to me.

  • Tanner

    Racists:
    Please stop blaming the blacks just because 95% of the perps are black.
