ObamaVille: 5 Dead 31 Shot During Weekend

ObamaVille aka Chicago aka Big Juarez must have had a end of summer shooting fest.
From the Chicago Sun Times:
Five people have died and at least 31 people — including a 3-year-old boy — have been wounded in shootings across the city since Friday afternoon, authorities said.
The 3-year-old boy was accidentally shot in the head Friday about 7:30 p.m. in the West Garfield Park neighborhood on the West Side, authorities said.
The boy’s father, 26-year-old James Jenkins, was charged and ordered held on $500,00 bond Sunday for owning the gun that either the 3-year-old or a sibling accidentally discharged at a home in the 4300 block of West Monroe, prosecutors said.
The child was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in critical condition, officials said.
Jenkins is charged with felony count of unlawful use of a weapon by a parolee.
The most recent fatal shooting occurred Sunday afternoon in the Austin neighborhood on the West Side.
A 14-year-old boy was in the 1100 block of North Leclaire at 2:52 p.m. when two males approached him, police said. One of the males was armed and fired shots at the boy, striking him in the back. The two then got in to a dark Infiniti and drove off, police said.
Marcus McCarty, who lived a block south of the shooting, was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead an hour later, the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.
Several hours earlier, another teen was shot to death in Little Village early Sunday.
The 16-year-old was talking to friends on the sidewalk in the 2200 block of South Marshall a few minutes before 6 a.m. when two people walked up, shouted gang slogans and opened fire, police said.
Being a crime reporter in Chicago has just about the best job security anybody can have.
And so when will Al, Jesse, Barack, Eric and their fellow racists march for these victims?
What's the difference between a cop shooting someone dead and a gang banger shooting someone dead?
Damned if I know, both of the victims are dead.  Does it really matter who killed who?
