Chicago shootings soar over the long holiday weekend: 19 dead, 13 children wounded:
Violence spiked in Chicago with 104 people shot over the long Fourth of July weekend leaving 19 dead and 13 children wounded, according to reports.
It marked the deadliest weekend in Chicago this year, as a political back-and-forth continues in city halls and on Capitol Hill over a nationwide crime wave.
“I wish that whatever this madness is going on, I wish that it would stop,” Chicago resident Toni Watkins, told The Chicago Sun-Times. “Usually, I feel safe around here. But now this has me questioning it because it’s close to home right now.”
A Chicago Sun-Times database tallied the gun violence over the weekend.
Two Chicago police officers were among those wounded over the weekend. They were shot while dispersing a crowd early Monday morning. At least 33 officers have been shot at this year, according to Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown. --->READ MORE HERE

Stray bullets in Times Square and widespread violence in the city are evoking New York’s bleakest days, forcing leaders to fine-tune recent changes to policing and rethink revolving-door policies that send prisoners back to the ZIP codes where they committed crimes.
The debate is playing out amid a mayoral race that could pit a retired police captain against a GOP nominee who’s been a public safety advocate for decades.
The New York Police Benevolent Association and other lobbies say anti-police rhetoric is driving cops and detectives to quit or seek early retirement, weakening their ability to fight the crime wave. But a reversal of New York bail reforms tops their wish list.
They say the bail reforms, enacted at the state level in January 2020 to help defendants who cannot afford release pending trial, are handcuffing judges who want to keep dangerous suspects locked up. --->READ MORE HERE
