Aurora, Illinois

I know this sounds callous, but I've never really understood the media's infatuation with shooter boy whack job who kills a bunch of people when there's an Aurora in very major city around this country. It's just called the weekend.

Take last night in Chicago............

Four teens – two 13-year-olds and two 16-year-olds – were shot within a half hour in the city's Englewood and Gresham neighborhoods on the South Side, according to police.

The four were among at least 10 people shot overnight in attacks on the city's South and West Sides.

Three boys, ages 13, 16 and 16, were walking in the 7100 block of South Loomis Boulevard in the Englewood neighborhood about 11:25 p.m. Saturday when two others approached them on foot and started shooting. The 13-year-old was shot in the left hand and right shoulder and was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro said.

Or how about this report.................

The weekend’s first fatal shooting happened in the 400 block of North Austin Boulevard, after a man intervened in a domestic argument between the suspect and a woman, police said. The suspect left to get a handgun, then returned about 12:50 a.m. on Saturday and opened fire, striking the man and two other people.

Akil Partee, 19, of the 5900 block of West Lake Street was dead at the scene, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office. A 29-year-old man was shot in the abdomen and was in critical condition at Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood. A 20-year-old man was shot in the buttocks and taken in fair condition to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County. Authorities think the gunman may have shot the men from a light-colored vehicle.

Another man died after he was shot in the abdomen in the 4200 block of North Milwaukee Avenue at 1:46 a.m, police said. Pablo Hernandez, 41, of the 3500 block of South 60th Court in Cicero, was pronounced dead at Masonic at 3:37 a.m., according to medical examiner’s office.

About 6 a.m. on Saturday in the 4500 block of South Wood Street, a 37-year-old man was shot by a man he had apparently been in a fight with earlier in the morning, police said. The other man returned to the scene with a semi-automatic handgun and fired several shots at the victim, police said. The victim was taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County, where he was pronounced dead, according to police. The shooting may have been gang-related.

At least 21 other people were hurt in shootings on the South and West Sides since about 8 p.m. Friday evening.

The city of Chicago and all of it's "progressive" brethren are caldrons of Aurora's every single night in this country.

But you won't see Brian Williams on the story now will you........
