Father’s Day marks the day Americans celebrate their paternal units. In the tourist attraction known as Chicago, it seems as though gang members prefer to celebrate the Father’s Day weekend with gunfire directed at their fellow Americans rather than having a peaceful dinner and gifts of ties and Old Spice to dear old dad.

As Father’s Day leads into the Juneteenth federal holiday Monday, the body count of Chicago’s new Mayor Brandon “Big Brain” Johnson’s continues to climb. Eleven are dead and 53 more have been wounded as of this morning, during a particularly bloody holiday weekend. Sharp-eyed readers will recall that over Memorial Day weekend the Windy City tallied 12 dead and 49 more wounded in largely gang violence.

We’ll have to wait until tomorrow to accurately compare the tallies between this weekend and the Memorial Day holiday weekend, the traditional beginning of the summer open season in the Windy City. However at this point it seems a safe bet that the Father’s Day/Juneteenth weekend will beat Memorial Day handily.

It’s almost as if crime is getting worse under the new Mayor’s administration. Spoiler alert: it is. It was jumped 38% over his first 30-days in office.

ABC7 Chicago has a rundown of the mayhem.

At least 55 people have been shot, nine fatally, in shootings across Chicago over the three-day holiday weekend so far, police said.

Five people were shot, two fatally, on the city’s South Side on Sunday evening, Chicago police said. The shooting happened in the Roseland neighborhood near West 99th Street and South Princeton Avenue. Two men, a 37-year-old shot in his head and a 33-year-old shot in the neck, died from their injuries. Police said another man, a 27-year-old shot in the buttocks and shoulder, is in critical condition. Two other men, 19 and 25, were listed in fair condition. All gunshot victims were transported to the University of Chicago Medical Center and Roseland and Christ hospitals. During a press conference, Chicago police said a car pulled up alongside the gathering, and someone inside opened fire.

Four men were shot, one fatally, in the Austin neighborhood early Sunday. Just before 3 a.m., five men were fighting inside a garage in the 5400-block of West Crystal Street when one of the men pulled out a gun and opened fire, according to Chicago police. One man, 31, suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was taken to Loyola University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, police said. Another man, whose age was unknown, was shot in the ankle and was taken to the same hospital, where he was listed in good condition, police said. The third man, 27, was struck in the leg and arm and drove to Stroger Hospital in fair condition, police said. A fourth man, whose age was unknown, also went to Stroger Hospital and was listed in critical condition with unknown injuries, police said. The gunman fled the scene, police said. No one was in custody.

A man was found shot to over an hour earlier in Woodlawn on the South Side. The man, 48, was found with a gunshot wound to the head in the 6600-block of South Evans Avenue around 1:30 a.m., Chicago police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. No arrests have been made.

A teen boy was killed and another was injured in a Saturday afternoon shooting on Chicago’s West Side, police said. Police said the shooting happened in the Fifth City neighborhood’s 100-block of South Homan Avenue at about 4:45 p.m. Two teens, 14 and 15 years old, were struck by gunfire and transported to Stroger Hospital in critical condition. The 15-year-old boy, shot in the head, was pronounced dead at the hospital, police said. The 14-year-old boy was shot in the body multiple times. There is no one in custody and area detectives are investigating. Police did not immediately provide further information about the shooting.

Notice the common thread in all of these…”No one was in custody.” “No arrests have been made.” There’s more here if you want to read the rest of the story.

Welcome to Chicago, the city of impunity, where police solve just 5% of major crimes and the mayor is more interested in “social justice” and hiring yellow-vested “peacekeepers” than actual law and order.

  1. Meanwhile law abiding citizens need a FOID before they can defend themselves with firearms approved by the nazi command.

    • A smart politician knows that it’s bad business to arrest and prosecute your key constituents.

  2. 5% solve rate for major crimes.
    Typical Democrat government performance.
    How about a chaser of Democrat teacher performance.
    What a cesspool.

  3. And our Leftist brethren will say, it is the fault of all those states with “laxed gun laws”. They fail to realize that it’s Chicago’s fault and their laxed enforcement of the laws already on the books.

  4. Too many punch lines for this story……….couldn’t decide on the best one. All too obvious!!

  5. As we all know “elections have consequences”. Wake up blue cities and blue states.Dead is forever.

  6. Ho hum…life in Chiraq. They voted for this BS. Something something we got black cops,alderpersons,Cook county presidon’t n da Mayor. It’s a shame. I lived in Chicago for 6 years in the 80’s-did a huge amount of business there. I won’t go there unless ordered by the court’s. And they effectively drove Westforth Gunshop out of business in rural Gary. They are closing soon unless the retiring old man gets a buyer(I bought a pistol light 30% off (everything!) today. Still some great deals especially for Indiana folks🙄

    • Watch this video.

      Always pushing the Obama Bullshit MYTH of the US Civilian Gun Market of supplying the Mexican Drug Cartels Sewage Filth………The Mexican Government is where the Cartel gets the guns from.

  7. Sadly, this problem has and continues to be propagated by a lack of fathers in the family unit.

    • There are plenty of “fathers”…

      Dads, as a part of a family unit with 1 male and 1 female parent, as was traditional from the days long before Abraham and Sarah is what’s missing. And that problem is not only unique to Blacks, the White population seems bent on copying this. Hispanic and Asian not so much.

      • Percentage of children living without their biological father (2021):
        Black – 64%
        Hispanic – 42%
        White – 24%
        Asian – 16%

        • Where did your stats come from???

          I’d question the figure concerning Caucasians. At least on an every night basis. Perhaps having regular custody rights.

      • I think you are trying to make the distinction between sperm donors and FATHERS who are actually involved in the lives of their children.
        A distinction that needs to be made, for sure.

        Part, actually MOST, of the oroblem with this critical distinction is the fault of stupid government. They have done all they can to assure males are no longer PRESENT in the homes of their own children. Mama can drop all the babies she wants to, the state will very happily feed, house, clothe them, and do what they call “ediucating” them as well. But there MUST NOT be a real FATHER living with them. This perpetuates a marxist system that leads directly and proximally to weekends justlike this past one in SchitCahGo.

    • In Chiraq, instead if “Who’s Your Daddy,” they’re practicing “Shoot Your Daddy.”

  8. It’s ok. As long the democrats are in charge, the city can burn to the ground. They can still be in power over the burned ashes and ruble.

    I believe they are making weed legal soon!!!

  9. Given the fact that 77% of all babies born to Black women are born to unmarried Black women, it is likely that most young Black people don’t even know who their father is much less have a relationship with them. Why in the Hell would they care about Father’s Day. It’s just another day in the ‘hood to shoot at each other.

  10. Please, let’s not de-emphasize Father’s day by even mentioning this new made up holiday.

      • You’re right. The sad thing is most of those celebrating today have No Clue what they’re celebrating.
        Much like the Chicanos celebrating Cinco de Mayo. Ask any of them, and they’ll say it’s celebrating Mexico’s Independence. It’s not, it’s the date celebrating the Mexican Victory at the Battle of Puebla.

      • They couldn’t free the slaves in Louisana on this date because they found that many of the plantations there were owned by northerners.

    • Have you ever watched these young idiots on the security cam videos when they shoot ? They jump around like a jack in the box and spray half the town with wild shots.

  11. I love how they call them “mass shootings” too.

    Black on black gang crime is not a mass shooting.

    • I’m still saying in order to be called a mass(massacre) an acre of shuted needs to be shot. Or the shuters need to be in a catholic church during mass.
      Define mass shuting.

  12. This nonsense will not even begin to change until about five to eight hundred black FATHERS all go pay a visit to this sorry excuse of a mayor’s HOME about eight PM one night, holding signs demanding the mayor DEAL with the mess, now. Then come back the next evening. And the next. Not shouging and thretening, just THERE with the signs an such. Maybe singing We Shall Overcome as they stand there surrounding his HOME night after night. Yes, five to eight hundred of them all at once, night after night until the mayor gets a clue and TAKES ACTION.

    • 500 to 800? Since you can’t kick one without offending their brothers, sisters, cousins, aunts and uncles, You’ have a hard time getting those numbers. Many of these Idiots share Father’s, as their Daddies climbed on more than one woman, and would f*** the Crack of Dawn if possible.
      The joke used to be about Appalachian Hillbilly interbreeding. Now it’s a much bigger problem in the Ghettos.
      Pretty soon, we’re going to see 6 fingers kids and other genetic mutations due to the inbreeding.

  13. This “Juneteenth” holiday does nothing to unite the American people. In fact it puts a wedge between the races. It is at best another divisive point in America. Just as “Indigenous Peoples Day” does.
    Why can’t we find what unites us?

    • While I can certainly see why it would be an important Regional Holiday, especially to the descendants of the slaves of Galveston Island, I can’t see why it became a Federal Holiday.
      Most of the Slavery Descendants alive today were emancipated two years earlier in 1863. Galveston was cut off, due to the Union Blockade, so the slaves there were unaware that they had been freed two years earlier. That’s why it was a regional Holiday since the late 19th century.
      The sad fact is that most Black’s don’t know what it is they’re celebrating.

      • Bemused, is that really a surprise? Education is a terrible thing to waste.

  14. You’ve got to understand that the complete mass confusion from Father’s Day don’t just stop in one day… especially in those areas…😉

  15. At least if some medical student should decide his or her future is in gunshot trauma Emergency Medicine it is a no brainer as to where to apply for a Residency, although I have known more than my share of Doctors and apparently any big “progressive” run city’s emergency rooms will do.
