Life in "Progress" City - Chicago edition

Where it's Aurora Colorado............. every weekend..........

While the country still reels from the acts of one crazed gunman in Aurora, and politicians [with the help of the MSM] again banging the drum for new and better gun control laws, one can’t help but wonder why there is no outrage over the daily slaughter happening on the streets of Chicago.  Like some bad Sam Peckinpah movie, the homicides are in slow motion.  Day in and day out more innocent men , women and children are being gunned down at a staggering rate.
Why just last night in Chi-Town:
Six people were shot and five of them died during a bloody 12-hour period between 4 p.m. Thursday and 4 a.m. Friday, according to Chicago police.
Among the dead: two men in their early 30s in a gang-related slaying on the Southeast Side, a 22-year-old former CPS basketball player who recently committed to a Division 1 school for basketball, a 35-year-old clerk at a West Side gas station and a 25-year-old man killed in a drive-by attack in the Park Manor neighborhood…
So very recently:
On Monday July 10th, nine young people were killed and 17 wounded in suspected gang-related violence the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
Where is the national outrage?  With a weekly body count approaching that of the Aurora tragedy, the MSM must have missed this story.  Similar to the old adage of how to boil a frog, if it happens ever so slowly, maybe no one will pay attention….
