Wednesday Worse Than Thought
- Two men were killed and at least 12 other people were wounded in shootings across the city since Wednesday morning.
Most recently, a 20-year-old man was shot to death near a Marathon gas station in the West Garfield Park neighborhood, police said.
About 2:08 a.m. Thursday, police were called to a gas station in the 100 block of South Cicero Avenue and found the man unresponsive, police said.
That's a lot of cars held down on so-called "post-shooting missions" that (A) keep police from actively looking for criminals and (B) do nothing to prevent an actual shooting. Maybe we need to concentrate on "pre-shooting missions" to tamp down the violence?
