61 Shot, 8 Killed In Chicago During Thanksgiving

While many of us were enjoying the company of our families and friends over the Thanksgiving holiday, there were a string of shootings and deaths taking place in Chicago, Illinois.

According to NBCChicago, a total of 61 people suffered gunshot wounds and 8 died as a result of them from Thursday to Sunday. Apparently trigger fingers don’t take a break to eat turkey and stuffing.

Last year at this same time “only” 20 were shot, but 8 were still killed.

Although many of the dead were in their 20’s, the ages of the deceased ranges from 16 to 56. It’s heartbreaking to think that this type of wanton violence is still plaguing our communities.

Let Donald tell it, he’s gonna fix black neighborhoods so we don’t get “shot in the face” anymore. We shall see. SMH.

R.I.P to the dead, get well to the injured.
