63 Shot, 8 Dead In Chicago's 2nd Most Violent Weekend Of 2017

Tyler Durden's picture

More people were shot in Chicago over this past weekend than any other this year, except for the Fourth of July weekend that spanned four days.  According to the Chicago Tribune and police data, a total of 63 people were shot and 8 were killed as violence erupted all over the city.

At least 63 people were shot in the city, and eight of them were killed, police said.  More than half of them were wounded over 13 hours from Saturday to early Sunday.  At least 16 more people were shot through the day Sunday, including three on the same street in South Austin.


The level of violence exceeded the 52 shot on the three-day Memorial Day but fell short of the 102 hit by gunfire over the long Fourth of July weekend, according to Tribune data.  Still, fewer people have been shot in Chicago this year than at this time last year: 2,435 compared to 2,710.


The wounded included a 14-year-old boy grazed in the chest and left knee while he walking with his sister and a friend just before 9:30 p.m. Friday in Pilsen.


An officer-involved shooting Saturday night left 33-year-old man with graze wounds to the head. Police said he confronted police with a gun and an officer fired.

The violence in Chicago continues despite the Trump administration sending in dozens of ATF agents to work with the Chicago Police Department back in June.  Per U.S. News, ATF agents were sent in to assist with ballistics information intended to help cops track down suspect quicker while identifying repeat offenders.

The ATF is sending 20 agents to Chicago to supplement ongoing efforts and coordinate with local agencies on a strike force aimed at solving shooting cases and using collected evidence and ballistics to find and stop gun traffickers, the Chicago Sun Times reported. They will join some 35 to 40 ATF agents already assigned to Chicago.


The goal is to use ballistics information submitted to a national database to identify when guns are used in multiple shootings and connect them to new cases. The beefed-up strike force, equipped with a mobile lab to quickly test new evidence, will help law enforcement build criminal cases against shooters and those providing the guns.


"We've been doing this all along but now it's being amped up," Dave Coulson, a spokesman for ATF in Chicago, told the Sun Times. "It's a more concerted effort."


"The goal is the prosecute as many of these guys as possible federally where they will serve longer prison terms," Anthony Riccio, head of the Chicago Police Department's organized crime unit, told the paper.

Meanwhile, the following daily tracking graph from HeyJackAss! helps to put the surge in violence this past weekend into perspective.


Per the Chicago Tribune, this weekend's shootings occurred across the city, from Rogers Park on the Far North Side, where a 32-year-old man was killed early Sunday, to West Pullman on the Far South Side, where seven people were shot outside a banquet hall a few hours later the same day.


Finally, as we've noted before, 2017 is still shaping up to be every bit as devastating for the residents of Chicago as 2016 was.

Another shining example of the mental disease of liberalism. Perhaps the MSM and Chitowns leaders all need a mental exam?

63 Shot, 8 Dead In Chicago's 2nd Most Violent Weekend Of 2017

My response: These numbers are really BIG. I guess my visits to Chicago in the near future will be curtailed indefinitely.

The time for curfews and martial law maybe a lot closer for Chicago than anyone wants to believe.


In a society where all lies, all deceptions, all corruptions are accepted, that society will lose control of everything. Chaos will begin to take over, and the only way that chaos will be slowed down will be when dictatorial control, or maybe even a police state is formed, where thought and behavior is fixed, and anybody out of bounds is punished. Eventually, the chaos has to be controlled. We’re not headed toward socialism; we could very well be headed toward a dictatorship in our world. Is this hard to grasp?

After witnessing how badly they vote, I'm not surprised their aim is so poor.

DeadFred's picture

You hit it on their poor aim. When the civil war heats up I bet the other side will laugh at a kill rate that barely hit 1:8.

63 wounded...keeps public hospitals busy + for GDP...

I'm making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do... http://disq.us/url?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.counts.top%3ACd8iFJnWWuHOVCLsjT1...

My Response: 13% is an embarrassing kill rate.

NurseRatched's picture

I agree.  The whole damn city is below the Mendoza Line. 

13% is pathetic.  Do these wannabe hitmen have their own walk-up music?  Are they tripping over their saggy pants when they should be aiming?

In South America police go around shooting gang members causing gang wars on purpose and drug people think cops don't . The call it - paquito trabaho- a little work, and I have long thought us cops do that as well, why not ?

Rahm and every single black leader there bashed the Chicago police so hard and the media like CNN chirped in, so the police said, "Fuck it!"


I can't blame them. Let Rahm and the black leaders go into those ghettoes to calm the savages. Send in Anderson Pooper and Tapper and Acosta. Add Chuck Todd the arrogant prig.

See how long they last. If Cooped rolls his blue eyes and bats his eye lashes he'll be gang raped by 50 of them before they slice him open and throw him in the dumpster.

It's all those confederate statues on the loose.

yogibear's picture

Plenty of time to beat last year's  record homicides

More than "NYC and LA combined"




And we took down all those statues.

Why is Trump wasting federal resources on a sanctuary city.  They invited the criminals into the city when the declared the rule of law null and void.

Who needs alleged "white supremacists" and "Nazis" when the dark & dumb animals do a fine job of lynching themselves???

Keep up the good work, BLM (Burglars Looters Murderers)

Sorry, but they go to taxpayer supported hospitals for free care.  Must cost a ton per gunshot wound.

Yeah, it's all those Confederate monuments causing these murders, everybody who isn't RAAAAAAAAAAAYCIST knows that.

Black-on-black violence.....it does your city good.

I think you guys are too happy this is happening... While I am not upset about it, no reason to celebrate. At the end of the day someones son, brother, father died and that person is not likely to be better off because of it. 

I know we are all burned out on liberal bullshit, hypocrisy, and being accused of being the problem because we are white and men, but lets not let this bad chapter in American history erode our principles and compassion for humans who are suffering (even if its their own or their 'leaders' fault).


besnook's picture

there is stuff you can do something about and stuff you can't do anything about. wisdom is knowing the difference. ghetto blacks have to help themselves. there is nothing you can do about what they are doing to themselves. sad it is but not your problem as long as they are shooting each other and not at you.

Hypocrite statue tipplers and accomplice media whores need to be shamed.

Obviously we have differing criteria for judging bad.

Sorry snowflake, but I'm not losing any sleep because a bunch of nigger thugs are capping each other!

They are really bad shots, 13% kill rate? Abysmal.

chubbar's picture

Exactly. If we really want a return on our taxpayer dollars, we'd be hiring some NRA instructors to give them shooting instruction. I'll bet it costs a lot less than 27K to bury them. Get that kill rate up and we'll be printing money!

These Noggers can't shoot for shit. They need higher capacity mags.

The useless Black Plague strikes again, but at least they're striking their own.

Exactly. Thugs killing thugs. Never interrupt the enemy when is making mistakes.

Chicago:run by jooish mafia for the last 80 years(and now by the talented Mr. Rahm Emanuel) at the top and nigga mafia at the bottom. The stupid white middle class still there deserves what it receives.

Hopefully they were pulling a shitcago version of Holder's Fast & Furious and handing them even more guns to homicide each other.

Yet Godfather Rahm still walks around the city...

Were the killers white supremacists? If not, it's no big deal according to all the blackie celebrities, SJWs and libtard media.

besnook's picture

you white people are causing them to kill each other because, you know, oppression. accept your responsibility or we(us other white people) will erect a statue and tear it down in your name.

Mena Arkansas's picture

At this rate, it's still going to take 270 years for the Chicago blacks to ethnically cleanse themselves.

Maybe holder and hillary can set up a fast and furious benghazi arms pipeline to speed things up.

Or raum can just call on his irgun terrorist heritage and start blowing shit up.

Never One Roach's picture

Anyone else notice the media outrage about this Denocrat-run town with blood soaked streets?

A dozen more were shot and 3 killed just this afternoon, when the denizens of Chicago's south and west sides were confused by the solar eclipse and thought nightfall had already arrived.
