40 shot, 11 killed, including local rapper, over deadly Chicago weekend

Not surprisingly, Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s Chicago experienced yet another violent weekend, which resulted in 40 people shot, and 11 killed, including well-known local rapper KTS Dre.

WTTW-TV Chicago reported, “According to the Chicago Police Department, 40 people were shot in 33 separate incidents over the weekend.”

The shootings ranged across various age groups and neighborhoods, including one local rapper who was attacked by gunmen after being released from the Cook County Jail.

Local rapper targeted

“A police report says the 31-year-old local rapper, whose real name was Londre Sylvester, had just been released on electronic monitoring when he was fatally shot across the street from the Cook County Jail around 8:50 p.m. Saturday in what authorities believe to be a targeted attack,” Fox News reported.

In a report from the Chicago Tribune, it was revealed that Sylvester’s body may have been struck by as many as 64 bullets from multiple shooters.

ABC-7 Chicago reported, “Court records indicate Sylvester’s fiancé had put up $5,000 on Friday to secure his release on charges of violating a previous bond in a 2020 gun case.”

The Chicago violence continues

WTTW-TV also noted, “According to CPD data, there have been 1,689 shootings in Chicago in 2021 through Sunday, and 2,104 shooting victims. Those totals are both up more than 10% over the same period in 2020, while homicides are down slightly (382 in 2021 compared to 387 in 2020).”

Chicago Police Superintendent David O. Brown announced via Twitter that he’s actively working with President Joe Biden and his administration on solutions to mitigate the onslaught of deadly gun violence.

Lightfoot under fire

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, who runs a city with some of the strictest gun laws in the country, has taken multiple rounds of criticism for the city’s continued violent crime surge.

One of those critics is Joe Gamaldi, who’s not only a police officer in Houston, Texas but also the national vice president of the Fraternal Order of Police. He told Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro that it’s time for action.

“When [Chicago] Mayor Lightfoot said that crime is down in Chicago, actually, shootings are up 67% in Chicago, just like in New York, they’re up 142%. And the worst part about it is, it’s our black and brown communities that are being impacted the most,” Gamaldi said.

    1. Steve, the problem is it happens so much and is so common place, that stories like this don’t have any impact. Now if someone noteworthy or very young is killed on camera, suddenly it becomes more newsworthy. I’m not wishing anyone harm you understand, I’m just stating a fact.

  10. Please keep it up Chicago. You are helping all of the USA to get rid of the bad 6% of the 13 %. If the voters and the demoncRATs can’t see what is going on to bad for them.

    1. AND HANG ON TO THAT DEMON RAT BLACK RACIST IDIOT MAYOR SHE HELPING THE GOP HAHAH SO PATHETIC

  11. Post above are about the miracle business letters.

    I agree with most of y’all. Let them kill each other.
    They’re so ignorant, blacks, they don’t realize everything they have was given them by white peoples. Granted, the slavery wasn’t that beneficial to them, but they learned work skills.
    Besides, if they stayed in Africa they would still be living in huts battling each other’s tribes.

  12. WELL THE DEMON RATS WANNA SHUT THIS SITE DOWN SO I GOTTA STAY TO FIGHT BACK ,,SO I VISIT TIME TO TIME AND GET A FEW SHOTS IN HAHAH

  13. Lightfoot doesn’t care who is killed. Black, white, purple. The question should be why do they reelect her and why haven’t they done a recall. must be because all the other politicians there are the same as her and people aren’t making noise.

  14. ALL PEOPLES LIFES MATTER, SO QUIT DOING THINGS THAT PUT YOUR LIVES IN DANGER FROM EACH OTHER INCLUDING POLICE. EVERY TIME A COLORED PERSON GETS KILLED THEY USE IT FOR AN EXCUSE TO RIOT. A WHITE PERSON GETS KILLED AND THEY DO NOTHING. STRNGE.

  15. The problem is that, since firearms are illegal in Chicago, the CRIMINALS are the only ones (aside from police) that are armed. Take a look at what happened in England, they made new laws that the citizens could not own weapons and ALL HELL broke loose! Now the criminals have a field day because they know the victims are unarmed. The police cannot keep up with the crime and the citizens are the unfortunate prey of thugs!
    Let the citizens of Chicago arm themselves, as is their Constitutional right, and the high crime rate will drop to half (or less) of what it is!

  16. Let those poor people arm them selfs what the hell is wrong with you there blood is on your hands who ever made that a law . Shame !!

  17. I get paid over $190 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I’d be able to do it but my best friend earns over 15k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless.

  18. Taking guns from law abiding citizens leaving them defenseless while the bad guys keep theirs makes absolutely no common sense. The 2ond amendment was drawn up by much smarter people than we have running the show now.
