Underreported News: Crime in Chicago

Seven died and five were wounded over the weekend in Chicago. The shooting death of Ronnie Chambers stood out:

Earlier Saturday, a man was fatally shot and another was wounded while sitting in a vehicle on the West Side. It happened around 2:15 a.m. Saturday in the 1100 block of South Mozart Street in Lawndale. Ronnie Chambers, 34, was shot in the head and died at the scene, according to police and the medical examiner’s office.

Chambers, a convicted felon and reputed Gangster Disciple gang member, was the fourth sibling in his family to die a violent death, according to the police. His other siblings also died from gunshot wounds, a police source said.

Chambers had 29 arrests and four convictions, including multiple felonies for drug dealing and weapons violations, according to another source.

Until the president and other Dems admit that the justice system’s catch-and-release policy isn’t working to control crime, there will never be a reduction in gun violence in our urban areas. I don’t care how much it costs, but somebody with 29 arrests and multiple felonies should not be on the street.
