Chicago isn’t safe folks.
You’re looking at a homicide scene in recent days in Chicago. Police vehicles and crime scene tape.
Do you see the sign on the light post. The one that says “Safe Passage”?
Let’s try again:
Yes, it’s a supposedly “Safe Passage” route.
This is, according to Mayor Rahm and the top cop Garry McCarthy, a safe place in Chicago. A safe place for school kids to walk to school.
And last night, guess what happened?
In broad daylight.
With hundreds of people around in what is supposed to be a safe part of Chicago.
Bad guys opened fire and wounded five people.
CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) – Five people were wounded Monday evening when a gunman opened fire on a group of people standing near a bus stop at a busy intersection in Uptown, police said.
They were shot at 5:57 p.m. at Sheridan and Wilson, authorities said. That corner is on a Chicago Public Schools “Safe Passage” route for schoolchildren.
