Cold and Bloody Weekend
- Weekend gun violence in Chicago left two men dead and at least 14 other people wounded, including a man shot during a party in the Loop’s historic Palmer House Hilton Hotel.
A shooting inside the Palmer House? That's going to do wonders for the tourism trade.
And then a horrific homicide that falls under the radar in the face of commonplace shootings:
- The death of a 2-year-old South Side girl has been ruled a homicide, after she suffered multiple injuries from a beating, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.
The state Department of Children and Family Services is investigating allegations of neglect in the death Layla Stewart.
Layla, of the 2000 block of West 69th Place was pronounced dead at Holy Cross Hospital at 2:12 a.m. on Sunday, according to the medical examiner’s office.
We think we passed the 2012 January homicide count already this year. And another month of no accountability for McCompStat and his failures, although he demands "accountability" from everyone else.
