7 Killed, 26 injured in weekend violence across Chicago

Seven people were killed and 26 others were hurt in another weekend of violence.

All of those people were shooting victims, with most of the crimes on the city’s South Side.

Sunday, two men were killed and four others were wounded in two shootings.

Mayor Emanuel says he’s concerned about the safety and security of neighborhoods and residents.

The mayor continues to push for a minimum three-year-sentencing for gun crimes.

He also says it’s time to replace the code of silence with a moral code.

    Jesse Jacka$$ where are you! Al Sharpton where are you! Get off the coat tails of the Martin/Zimmerman ruling and do something for humanity, not to mention the African American culture.

    it makes no sense to protest the killing of a black kid by a Peruvian/white but not gnash a tooth at the continued slaughter that is black on black crime-signed a black guy

      You are right more attention is paid to one death in Florida than the massacres in Chicago. These protesters are beyond dumb, beyond stupid They are outright morons. They should be marching in Chicago every week. It is wrong for a white or Hispanic to kill a black person but there is nothing wrong when blacks kill blacks. To president Obama, to all those protesters last week the lives of blacks in Chicago mean absolutely nothing. They don't count. Alive today dead tomorrow who cares?

    What the HECK is going on there? SEVEN people killed? Why isn't Obama taking notice or speaking up about this? Oh, wait because he's pretending he was like Trayvon Martin (a gangbanger thug) instead of the super-privileged Oreo he was at that age (and now as well).
    You know, former Mayor Daley predicted disaster on the streets of Chicago once the assault weapon ban expired and once he realized that the Rahm would be rammed down the throat of Chicago. Boy was he right. And now you all have a little baby Obama boy trying to run a rough city like Chicago. I feel sorry for all of you. Chicago used to be a wonderful city. :(
