Chicago ... That "Toddling Town"

Another week, another Chicago Massacre.  You have to ask yourself ....

                          WTF CHICAGO?

38 shot — 9 fatally — in weekend gun violence across Chicago | Chicago Sun-Times:

Can't you people  talk things out?

I'm wearing out the "CHICAGO" sidebar classification thingie on my computer because every damn WEEK I'm reading about how you folks are killing each other.

Yes, I know there are other major cities with horrendous murder rates ... but you guys seem to get the most press time because (I don't know) the Roaring Twenties?

Gimme a break; Al Capone died of syphilis about a zillion years ago, but you people keep on with the shootings and gangs and I don't know what all.  Have you no shame?

Nine people were killed and at least 29 others were wounded in weekend shootings in Chicago. Shootings across the city wounded 12-year-old boy on the Far South Side, and wounded a woman who tried to break up a fight in University Village, from 5 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday. In the weekend’s last shooting, two women were shot by a man they were arguing with in Englewood on the South Side, Chicago Police said. Among the fatalities was 39-year-old Tyrone White, who was killed in a shooting that wounded five others the West Woodlawn neighborhood on the South Side. About 1:10 a.m. Sunday, White and the others were gathered outside in the 6400 block of South Eberhart when someone fired shots from inside a passing vehicle, police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said.

Stop it.  Just ... stop it.  I don't need more stories about Chicago murders.

Can't you all just get along?

PS: Can anyone tell me what a "Toddling Town" is?  I tried to ask Frank Sinatra, but he's not answering his phone.

It all involves a protected racial group that commit 99% of the shootings and killings, an ineffective and crooked court system, and a shady political machine that has neutered and decimated the police force.

Bet it would slow way down if CCW permits were attainable in Chi-town.

@ Mark: Illinois has CCW now, and there are a CCW holders in Chi-town, in fact, a few of them have already offed a thug or two. It's just that there are not many of them and they stay in the better parts of town, which is not where all the shooting is happening.
