In a period of a little over 24 hours this weekend, 24 people were shot in Chicago, including three children under 13 — and three of the adults shot died from their injuries, according to police.
This is worse than in Tijuana, folks. Not by much but still. In the meantime, we heard ad nauseum that the new mayor of Chicago is gay but nothing about how she will make this horror stop. I mean, I’m happy for her but who the ef cares about her sex life when the city (or a portion of it, rather) is a literal bloodbath? Nobody even mentions her without bringing up that she’s gay, as if it’s somehow meaningful to the extremely hard task that awaits her in Chicago.
Twenty-four people in a day is a lot of people. This is impossible to imagine. A terrible, terrible tragedy.
