'Mayhem': Chatham shooting leaves 10 shot, 1 dead, Chicago police say

Source: ABC7 Chicago

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Ten people were shot early Saturday morning in an attack in Chatham on the South Side, Chicago police said.

The shooting happened just after 2 a.m. in the 7500-block of South Prairie Avenue, according to CPD.

Chicago police said the victims were on the sidewalk when two male suspects approached and opened fire.

A 29-year-old woman was shot in the abdomen and left knee and later died at University of Chicago Medical Center.

The rest of the victims, who ranged in age from 23 to 46, were reported in good to fair condition after being shot, police said.

This mass shooting IS of national interest, as much as workplace shootings and all the other mass events that get news coverage when ten people are shot.

But this happened on the south side of Chicago, and won't get much coverage. EVEN IN CHICAGO, it will be reported as just another unfortunate event in an endless stream.

6. I was just going to say the same thing

And for all we know, there could have been more. What a bizarre and depressing era we are living in, where mass shootings have become so commonplace.

2. 99% of Mass Shootings are Male Grievance shootings.

Chicago's long-running south side violence stems from a different motive than the rampage shootings that plague much of America.

Poverty, gangs, and machismo versus toxic misanthropy and mental illness.

The results are the same.

3. It's not only the southside.

It’s the west side and other pockets around the city as well. And, yes, it’s different. I live not too far from one of the gang pockets. We play “gunshot? fireworks?” all the time. Oddly, though, I never feel unsafe. Chicago is a fantastic city. However, when I moved here, I was very surprised at the segregation of neighborhoods in Chicago.

4. Yes, the west side too. Randy Newman's caustic 1974 "Rednecks" addresses it.

Here's the relevant verses, and I apologize for the N words. It's sung from the viewpoint of a southern racist:

Now your northern n*****'s a negro
You see he's got his dignity
Down here we're too ignorant to realize
That the North has set the n***** free

Yes he's free to be put in a cage
In Harlem in New York City
And he's free to be put in a cage
On the South Side of Chicago
And the West Side
And he's free to be put in a cage
In Hough in Cleveland
And he's free to be put in a cage
In East St. Louis
And he's free to be put in a cage
In Fillmore in San Francisco
And he's free to be put in a cage
In Roxbury in Boston
They're gatherin' 'em up from miles around
Keepin' the n*****s down

7. I never felt unsafe in Chicago either

though it was many years ago. Still I am also surprised at how segregated many of the neighborhoods are.

9. Chicago actually had 970 murders

in 1974 so Chicago has been pretty violent for decades. In 2020 it had 770 murders.

11. GOP terrorism

they know full well what's going on and refuse to do anything to stop it. Not only that , but they block any attempts by the democrats to do so.
