Thugs Killed More People in Chicago Than Coronavirus Did

There’s no social distancing for criminals.
While the authorities are cracking down on miscreants attending drive-in church services or surfing in the ocean, urban gangs are practicing social distancing by shooting their victims from passing cars.
With 4 dead and 19 wounded over the weekend, Chicago’s gangs made it clear that they weren’t staying home. Either that or they thought that shooting rival drug dealers was an essential activity.
And for them it probably is.
While local media broadcast pictures of a deserted Windy City, the shootings paralleled those of previous years. Orders to stay at home, like most laws, don’t apply to criminals.
In one single day in early April, Chicago thugs killed 6 people and shot 21. So far this year, 117 people have been killed, and 522 were wounded. By the time you read this, the numbers will be higher.
Only 86 people in Chicago, so far, have died of the coronavirus.
Chicago’s thugs can give any pandemic a run for its money. And then shoot it in the back.
Pastor Michael Pfleger, Chicago's other clerical Obama mentor, blamed, "anger, frustration, and depression." Depression takes many forms. Like the two gentlemen who were shooting at each other from two different cars. Now that’s social distancing. Or the man who shot a 5-year-old girl in the foot.
That isn’t depression. It’s evil.
Meanwhile, Cook County freed 300 inmates. Toni Preckwinkle, the president of the Cook County Board of Commissioners, has said that she wants to figure out how to get 1,000 criminals "back into the community safely". And once they’re safely there, they can safely shoot some more people.
And that comes at a time when 200 Chicago cops have been diagnosed with the coronavirus.
