    Well theres a world class shooting trauma unit right in the center of the city that has gangsta resurrection down to a science. Its like a factory, dieing gangstas go in and healthy gangstas come out, on the tax payers dime, to renew their chosen career.

    Usually, Memorial Day shooting is Armed Forces honour guards firing guns in the air to salute to fallen soldiers.

    In Chicago, they just celebrate by shooting at each other in a gun "salute."

    This is the difference. Chicago always has to be different.

    All these head and neck shots. Are the gangstas getting better? Or just lucky?

    So true!!! We have one of those trauma centers right down the road from my house, that I am luck/unlucky enough to work at. That's the worst part of my job...having to save LLPOS so that they can come back again and again! Job security I guess is a way to look at it...the cops, first responders, ER & OR folks will always have a job!

    Once caught (if caught) and convicted, IMO every single one of the murderers needs to be given an official "21 gun salute" ... dead COM.

    They're just reporting the people hit by gunfire? I'm willing to bet there were a lot more reports of gunfire where nobody was hit

    A cop, who worked out of my office, and I talked about this very thing. He pointed out to me that video games gave more points for 'head shots', and thus, the younger thugs attempted head shots as a natural thing. I don't know if it's true, but it seemed to make some sense.

    Perhaps Chicago could just have a "Shoot Another Thug for Free Day" and waste 'em all...wait a minute, that's what they already have...
