19 People Shot Overnight in Chicago

All three cable news channels are live right now, covering a shooting near the Empire State building in NYC where “several people” have been shot.  I’m hoping nobody has been killed and that the victims recover.

But I wonder why this isn’t BREAKING NEWS:

Nineteen people were shot across the South and West sides from Thursday evening through early Friday morning — 13 of them wounded over a 30-minute period, authorities say.

The overnight shootings peaked between 9:15 p.m. and 9:45 p.m. That’s when eight people, many of them teens, were shot at 79th Street and Essex Avenue about 9:30 p.m.

Then two men were wounded in the Ida B. Wells / Darrow Homes complex at about 9:25 p.m., police said. The men, 27 and 33, were shot in the 600 block of East 37th Street and taken to the University of Chicago Hospitals, police said. The younger man was shot in the head and the other in the right arm, Gaines said.

Around the same time, two other men were wounded in the arms in a drive-by shooting in the 2900 block of West 39th Place in the Brighton Park neighborhood.


Oh, wait.  I know why the Chicago shootings aren’t breaking news.  Because chances are good the victims there are African-American.

    And, of course, “Guns, guts, and glory. That’s what makes America great.” Right?
