Lost in the Shuffle
The "Hey look over there!" strategy means everyone has already forgotten about this:
- Six people were killed and at least 39 were wounded in shootings across Chicago in one of the more violent weekends the city has seen since last fall, according to police.
Among the victims were five people who were on a porch in West Englewood when someone fired shots from a vacant lot across Damen Avenue on Sunday night. Two men were pronounced dead on the scene. Three others went to area hospitals.
It was the third attack in less than a week that wounded four or more people in Chicago.
You have to love the writer - "...one of the more violent weekends the city has seen since last fall..." No mention of the warm weather. No mention that it's still April, merely springtime. No mention that Lord only knows what going to happen when school is out for good, the temperatures soar and the killing season gets fully underway.
