This past Monday August 8th was Chicago’s Deadliest day in over a decade. Nine out of the 19 people who were shot on Monday died. This marks the deadliest day of gun violence in Chicago since July 5, 2003—a day on which there were 10 homicides.

There were 3 police involved car chases across the city Tuesday it is unclear if this cruiser crashed in one of those car chases.

Chicago is starting to resemble the wild wild west more and more every day. According to the police radio this vehicle was being pursued by the Chicago police when it crashed into another vehicle at 59th and Ashland in the west Englewood neighborhood on Chicago’s Southside. it is unknown if the suspects bailed or were arrested, but what I do know is a gun was found in the vehicle. These fleeing criminals use guns to kill and wound but when they are trying to escape from police at high rates of speed, that vehicle becomes as deadly a weapon as the gun they use.

I must now ask the hard question? Does the leadership of black lives matter realize how many calls come across the radio of minorities calling the police on other minorities in these high crime communities the majority of the calls that come into the 911 CPD dispatch center are about 70% of all calls. I had the pleasure of talking with two ladies from Englewood age 20 and 21, I asked them the question are you afraid of the police, they both instantly replied NO, they went on to say they were more afraid of young black men their own age running around their neighborhood shooting at anything that moves. They also said these young black guys shoot at women children they just don’t give a shit, that’s why we are moving out of this insane city. Maggio News Signing off.
