5 Killed, More Than 40 Wounded in Violent Chicago Weekend

NBC Chicago, April 28, 2014

More than 40 people were shot, five of them fatally, in a spate of violence across Chicago between Friday and Sunday night.

The latest homicide took place around 12:25 a.m. Sunday in the 3500 block of West Fullerton Avenue in the Logan Square neighborhood. A 21-year-old woman was in the back seat of a vehicle driving eastbound on Fullerton when a group of men standing on the sidewalk shouted gang slogans and opened fire on the car.


On Saturday, a 17-year-old boy was fatally shot when a man dressed in all black approached him in the 5500 block of West North Avenue and fired at him from behind. {snip}

Less than an hour earlier, a 22-year-old man was fatally shot in the chest in the 5400 block of South Winchester Avenue in the Back of the Yards neighborhood.


On Friday, a 32-year-old woman was fatally shot in her driveway in the 1300 block of West 116th Street as she returned home from an anti-violence fundraiser.

Officers reported hearing shots fired around 10:30 p.m. and the woman, identified as Leonore Draper, was found in her car with wounds to her arm and chest. She was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center where she was later pronounced dead.

Earlier Friday, an off-duty police officer shot his neighbors, one of them fatally, after one neighbor shot and injured the officer’s wife in an argument that stemmed from a long-running feud between the two couples.

      I feel a twinge of sympathy for the cops. There’s no way (short of social revolution) they can stop young black (and to a lesser degree, Hispanic) men from shooting each other. But they’re under severe pressure from their political masters to make it look as if violent and property crimes are under control. They’ve got to figure: which is worse, fudging the crime reporting or losing their jobs?

      • Strike_Team

        It’s the same everywhere. The higher-ups, most of them are “perfumed princes”, they are the ones who make sure the numbers are adjusted. And then make thinly veiled “remarks” about what will happen if things don’t add up. Latino crime is so much worse than anyone imagines. It is incredibly bad. The government and media are doing incredible work when it comes to hiding it. And then we still have the perpetual black crime wave to deal with in any area in which they reside.

        Out here in So Cal people are told crime is at rates that rival the 1950’s. Sure. Just go out at night, unarmed, and wander around most of the neighborhoods in Los Angeles or Huntington Park or Compton or … almost anywhere else in Los Angeles County. We’ll check in with you in the morning and see if you’re still standing.

        • Hallie Eva

          Could not agree more, Strike-Team. Folks who do not live around mestizos
          have no idea how violent they are, and the damage done to any community
          they infest.
          Schools are very quickly degraded beyond recognition,
          militant anti-White Mexican [La Raza] history favored over American,
          kids are sent to school with no English skills and no lunch.
          their own to run the cities, overnight the place becomes little Mexico
          where drug dealing and gang banging are the norm with the elected
          officials in on the deal.

        • Brian

          And when you mention this, the gliberals will say ‘but homicide rates are still historically low’. Yeah, I just saw how the other day how shootings and stabbings are up considerably, but the deaths from them are lower because of improved trauma care. And it doesn’t take the brain trust to figure that as the low crime group shrinks and the high crime group increases in % of population, we’re going to have a major problem– in $, white flight, and balkanization.

      • TL2014

        Absolutely no sympathy for Chicago cops. They are to a large extent thugs just like the criminals, who like to bully innocent taxpayers. Have had my share of unpleasant interactions with uniformed thugs that are the CPD.

        • MBlanc46

          There sure are some that are like that. Others are just blue collar guys and gals trying to earn a living. The statistics-fudgers are mostly mid-level bureaucrats.

      • Lt. Greyman, NVA

        I guess if it was your rape or crippling assault or home invasion that was “disappeared”, then you might be upset that you are paying taxes to support Cops that only want the money flow.

        Maybe not, Stockholm syndrome is truly a social disease.

        • MBlanc46

          I’m sure that’s the case, but, on the other hand, I don’t imagine that many people have much confidence in the CPD to begin with.

  • Blacks can not create a civilization and even after being in one for hundreds of years, they’re incapable of something as simple as living at peace with one’s neighbors. Chicago, et. al. are turning into dystopia science fiction versions of civilization. What to do about it isn’t clear since our best shot would have been to send them back to Africa after the Civil War.

    • 4321realist

      “Blacks can not create a civilization and even after being in one for hundreds of years, they’re incapable of something as simple as living at peace with one’s neighbors.”

      They can’t maintain a civilization either. There are dozens of examples of their failures in the US and Africa, as well as Haiti, and I don’t think they’ve ever been trusted to run one in Central or South America. While the Latins leave much to be desired as nation builders, they’re not as foolish as whites and have no intention of voting one in to run say Buenos Aires, Rio, or Mexico City.

      It is white weenies who are head and shoulders above all other fools.

      A tan Bill Maher in Argentina would probably be strung up in less than a week after his show aired on t.v.

        While the Latins leave much to be desired as nation builders, they’re not as foolish as whites and have no intention of voting one in to run say Buenos Aires, Rio, or Mexico City.

        “Hispanics” aren’t as foolish as whites? No, they’re far more foolish than whites. They’re basically idiots. Mestizos have allowed themselves to be ruled by mulatto presidents over and over again. Mexico once had its version of Obongo during the early nineteenth century, a mulatto named Vincente Guerrero.

      Nothing can be done now. It’s too late. All we can try to do is attempt to “tolerate” them, and their abhorrent ways. That’s all we can do. No amount of money can be thrown at the problem to make it better, or to make it go away. And they aren’t going away any time soon. But my big question always remains…WHY do we tolerate it???

      • Dale McNamee

        I have friends who are from various African countries and we were discussing the situation… They DON’T want our “garbage” in their countries…

        In fact, one who came here to escape the war raging in his country was considering going back because he’d be safer there than living in Baltimore aka “Bodymorgue”…

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    OK, I’ve had about enough.

    What is it going to take before Rahm gets tough, passes meaningful gun control laws and has gun buy back programs in Chicago to stop this carnage!!

    Chicago is a quagmire and tar pit and we should withdraw…

    More than 40 wounded

    Damn gang bangers have lousy aim…

  • So CAL Snowman

    But they say crime is down, way down since the heydays of the late 70s and early to mid 80s. How much worse could it have been back then? For those of you that live in Chicongo, what was the crime like in the 70s and 80s compared to the present day?

    • bubo

      I’ve long suspected that the whole “crime is going down” meme is a ploy by the cathedral to try to get white people to believe that diversity won’t bring Sao Paulo level violent street crime. “See, were getting more diverse yet crime is dropping.”

    • Moe

      Right. Saying you don’t want someone photographed with a black easily trumps 5 dead blacks in crime-riddled Chi-town, any day. I think the 80’s had the crack epidemic. Crack does weird stuff to people, and add blacks with guns to the equation and you’ve got real problems.

    • Laura Dilworth

      Between abortion and long sentences for drug dealers, violent crime may be down. Chief of Police, McCarthy still blames it on conceal/carry. the majority of violent crime in our city is in the murder corridor

    • Pro_Whitey

      I understand a consensus is forming among journalists that in response to the crime rates of the 1970s and 1980s, police chiefs learned to lie, and taught their subordinates to lie and downgrade crimes to make the stats look better. See articles by Nicholas Stix especially. So, in short, it is probably as bad now as it was then, maybe worse.

  • Violent Chicago weekend?

    More like normal Chicago weekend.

    • IstvanIN

      Wasn’t there a song that went something like Chicago, Chicago, that Tommy Gun town, Tommy Gun town”?

      • Strider73

        Back in the ’70s there was a song titled “The Night Chicago Died,” but it was about the Capone era. Sorry, I don’t recall the artist. I went to a Rangers baseball game in 1994, and the to honor the visiting White Sox the sound guy played it during the 7th-inning stretch.

        Even with all the gangsterism, I suspect it was a safer town back then. The hoods did their best to avoid shooting “civilians,” since that would bring a harsher police response.

        • JohnnyHandsome

          I remember that song well. It was done by the English band “Paper Lace”. They disappeared from the charts soon after.

    • willbest

      Well lately if shootings occur within 12 hours of each other they are rolled up on the same incident report and counted as 1 crime. So that these are being separated indicates that normal is being reported normally

      • Latest rumor is that CPD stops the weekend clocks for tallying tribal warfare casualties in a weekend at 8 AM on Sunday, meaning they won’t even count Sunday night.


      Them people are going to have to try harder.

  • MBlanc46

    What’s an anti-violence event without a shooting? Da boyz weren’t really on the ball, though. No one died until after the event was over.

    • bilderbuster

      I know that any gathering of Blacks is always a recipe for disaster but WTF is an Anti-Violence Rally?

      • Dale McNamee

        It’s something that results in the gun violence and the deaths caused by it that is being protested…
        If nobody were killed or injured… This would be ironically hilarious !

        • bilderbuster

          An American White libtard must have thought of this and thought it would work with American Blacks.
          Even Africans in the Motherland don’t do silly things like that.

          • Dale McNamee

            I agree with you !
            Especially about the Africans from the Homeland… They don’t want our problems over there…

      • MBlanc46

        It’s usually some local reverend calling out the flock to sing and wave signs protesting some particularly heinous act by the local hoodlums. It ofter draws out the local TV news.

        • bilderbuster

          And they expect that to solve the problem?
          That’s a rhetorical question.

  • wildfirexx

    Isn’t this the second weekend in a row, … they’ve had this many shootings ?

  • Magician

    It appears several people die and several tens of people suffer gunshot wounds everyday over there

    • Bill Moore

      Hello Magician,

      I was in the US Army. Africans are notoriously bad shots. They couldn’t seem to “get it” that the gun-sight was supposed to be used to aim their weapon.

      Recently, there was a shootout in Edgewood (a suburb of Pittsburgh, PA) where two Africans with pistols were on a sidewalk shooting at each other, both in plain sight. Neither were hit, but five bystanders were wounded. This is common.

      What we need is to train the Africans in the use of the gun-sights to aim their weapon, and we would cut down on the number of wounded.

      However, such training in the US Army was only minimally effective.

      Just My Thoughts,
      Bill Moore

      • JohnnyHandsome

        Last month there was security cam video being played on the Philadelphia news stations of a few Africans in a motel engaged in a gun battle. They ran up and down the hallways and stairways firing at each other. Never hit a dam thing but air and drywall.

      • Conrad

        A year ago I was at a range practicing with my .45 auto. Some blacks were there shooting a .44 mag (why they like those big guns I don’t know). As I was shooting I heard one of them say “That’s pretty good shooting.” Later, they offered me a chance to shoot at their target, using the .44, and offered to put up a new target. I said “No thanks that one will do.”

        The target was a standard police silhouette target. I fired 5 rounds at the target. The black fellow beside me said “I don’t think that you even hit the paper.” They were all looking at the target and trying to figure out what I was shooting at and could not figure out why I was missing EVERYTHING. When I laid the pistol down they started giggling. UNTIL, I pointed out that ALL 5 rounds had hit right where I was aiming, > at the small silhouette target in the top left hand corner! They stopped giggling.

      • Grantland

        There was a Bantu brigade (32 Brigade/Buffalo Brigade) with White officers heavily used during the South African border war. Superb (for blacks) soldiers for a month or two after training. Then they had to be pulled back for retraining – apparently they had to relearn that pulling the trigger harder didn’t make the bullets fly faster. Apocryphal? Maybe.

        edit – battalion, not brigade.

  • Roninf9

    So that’s a 1 to 8 fatal to non fatal shooting rate. This low kill rate can be explained by poor Negro combat skills and medical technology invented and generaously provided by White people. If we extrapolate from the 415 murders in 2013 we can expect 3,320 non fatal shootings this year. I think there were less shootings during the height of the Vietnam War and this is just one city. Plus, how many more these shooting result in no injuries or unreported injuries.

  • IKUredux

    Only 5 killed? Once again, we are shown evidence of the Negroe’s inability to practice at something, to have , you know, a goal.Pathetic shooting. I look forward to the time when every shot made by a Negro against another Negro, is 100% accurate.

    • They hold their pistols sideways and are probably messed up on drugs when they shoot.

      I am teaching Ariadne with BB guns and the combat flight simulator game “Red Baron 3D”. I have her use 50-50 ball and incendiary because I like to watch them burn.

      The coilgun is still a bit too much, as it weighs more than she does.

  • Moe

    “On Friday, a 32-year-old woman was fatally shot in her driveway in the 1300 block of West 116th Street as she returned home from an anti-violence fundraiser.”

    Thug justice…she didn’t realize that these ‘young black men’ were armed and dangerous. That’s taking one for the team…friendly fire indeed.

    My Kind of Town–Frank Sinatra (new lyrics 2014)

    Now this could only happen to a thug like me
    And only happen in a dump like this
    So may I say to each of you most honestly
    As I throw each one of you a bulletproof vest

    This is my kind of town, Chicago is
    My kind of town, Chicago is
    My kind of people, too
    People who shoot at you

    And each time I roam, Chicago is
    Calling me home, Chicago is
    Why I just cry like a clown
    It’s my kind of town

    [brief instrumental]

    My kind of town, Chicago is
    My kind of town, Chicago is
    My kind of rat-tat-tat
    And it has all dem blacks

    And each time I shoot, Chicago is
    stealin’ my loot, Chicago is
    The bullet ridden South Side, Chicago is
    Auburn Gresham, Chicago is
    North Lawndale, Chicago is
    Washington Park, Chicago is
    One town that won’t let you down
    It’s my kind of town

  • TL2014

    Something like that, yes.

  • JohnEngelman

    During the paleolithic and neolithic eras men who killed enemies in war averaged many more children than men who did not. That is why racial populations that are closer to that way of life have higher rates of violent crime.

    • Grantland

      You err in extrapolating Yanamomo Indian/ other modern warrior tribes to Cro-Magnon, who was infinitely more warlike, on a full-time basis. There was no brief foray followed by a return to the village. There were bands of warriors in full-time war parties killing anyone who had something they wanted; anything that looked at them the wrong way. Conan the barbarian. It was the settled communities grouped together to defend against such bands where the children were born. That’s how the taming of the species happened.

  • Pro_Whitey

    How about covering the two-year old white boy recently killed by a stray bullet from a gang gun battle in Indianapolis? Stuff Black People Don’t Like is covering it.

  • I think this bears repeating: “An off-duty police officer shot his neighbors, one of them fatally, after one neighbor shot and injured the officer’s wife in an argument…”

    Over a quarrel.

    I’ve quarreled with neighbors before. One of them wouldn’t pick up her dogs’ poop. Another pair of kids always parked their vehicles in a marked fire lane. I can’t imagine shooting someone over issues like these. The libtards continue to say that blacks are morally the same as other people, but I believe killing or maiming someone over this sort of trivial issue is evil. I am not religious, but if there is a God, He would be Very Unhappy about that sort of thing.

    They have no impulse control.
