    All of these shootings happen days after this man, who is 58 years old was killed in a neighborhood street fight protecting his daughter from a racist white man who made racist coments towards his teenage daughter, and now this. These men are in their 50s when they died on these streets of Chicago. Rest in peace to this man who fought for his life protecting his daughter as he picked her up from her school.
