    Chicago’s gunfire body count for the holiday weekend was 101 people shot- 15 dead and 86 wounded:


    Let’s hope that pattern doesn’t catch on out here.

    Let me guess….

    Wow I guess they are inspired by Chicago….do we even have police anymore in America? I see them but their effectiveness is falling a little short IMO….

    They must have got confused and heard “glock” party instead of block party.

    An understandable mistake.
