115 Shot This Week In Chicago As 'Gun-Free-Zone'-City Continues Death Spiral

The saga continues in Chicago as violence across the US ticks upward following the Dallas police attack.

Having 115 people shot last week is incredible in lieu of what we reported earlier this year when 120 people in Chicago inside a 10 day span:

"following the seven people shot to death and 30 more wounded during the latest weekend, the total number of shootings in the windy city has risen to 120 in just over a week into the new year, according to police."

As if that isn't enough, recall that May was the worst month since 1995 for Chicago in terms of homicides:

Sadly, the pace of the shootings did hold, and Memorial Day weekend saw 6 people killed and another 63 wounded in a weekend that topped off the deadliest May in Chicago in 21 years according to the Chicago Tribune. Tragically, the month's 66th and final homicide victim was just a 15 year old boy named Fabien Lavinder. The 66 homicides represented the worst May since 1995 when 75 people were killed.

Remember also that over 40 people were shot during Memorial Day weekend in Chicago also.

This whole mess will likely to get worse following the attacks that have taken place between blacks and police over the weekend.  In Chicago, it's a pressure cooker that keeps building.  Something is going to cause chaos to rupture and spill throughout the city in ways far worse what we've witnessed in 2016 if the country keeps speeding toward maximum emotional outrage.  It is high likely that this kind of long-lasting, deeply rooted rage will not go away if guns are banned.

Thumbing through the stats on HeyJackAss.com landed us on the following graphics.  When it comes to victims in Chicago, nearly 80% are black.  As for arresting the culprits, nearly 80% are never found.

A microcosm... of when only criminals have guns.

Usually, Chicago has around 3,500 listeners on the police scanner and by far the most in any city.

However, Louisiana State Police scanner has 7,437 listeners as we speak. Is there something with BLM happening there right now?

It's funny that if you buy police scanner software, the directions typically say, test your scanner by dialing in an active source like Cook county on a Saturday night.

Yes, Baton Rouge protests are still on I think.
