USA: Violent Weekend, 40 Shot, 4 Killed In Chicago By Street Gangs Including 11-Year-Old, Shamiya Adams. Chicago Has Strictest Gun Control Laws In America.

This guy tells it like it is and I like how he describes the inner city of Chicago, Chiraq! Yes, because innocent people are being killed at the same rate or close to the massacres in Iraq. These street gangs are no different than the Islamist militants around the world. Well, the Islamist militants are beheading, executing, stoning, gang-raping hmm what else oh yeah bombing buildings, roads, bridges. They are the same in that both are extremely evil, they have no conscience and have no respect for human life or civilization.

The following data is taken from Chicago Tribune webpage titled, Crime in Chicagoland that keeps track of these figures on a daily basis for the public.

A stray bullet killed an 11-year-old Chicago girl playing at a sleepover during a bloody weekend in the city.

Shamiya Adams and friends were eating s’mores around a pretend campfire on Friday night when the bullet ripped through the house and slammed into the little girl’s head, CBS Chicago reported.

Distraught relatives rushed to Mt. Sinai Hospital where they stood vigil, crying out early Saturday morning when they learned Shamiya had died.

“A great-grandmother should not have to bury her great grandchild,” Shamiya’s great-grandmother, Lourene Miller, told ABC 7. “This is a pain I can’t even explain it hurts so bad.”

Cops are still searching for the killer, and local political and religious leaders have offered an $8,000 reward for information.

Investigators are hopeful surveillance cameras in the Garfield Park neighborhood will provide clues, according to media reports.
Shamiya’s death was part of a brutal round of shootings on Friday night into Saturday morning.

More than 20 people, including a 12-year-old girl, were wounded in little more than 12 hours, the Chicago Tribune reported.
The girl was shot in the foot when unknown shooters opened fire on her, a 33-year-old woman and a 44-year-old man on Friday afternoon.

All three survived the attack, the newspaper reported.

Three 15-year-old boys were wounded by gunfire in three separate incidents during the bloody span of attacks, and a 30-year-old man was found dead in a car about 3 a.m. on Saturday.

His body was riddled with bullets, slumped over in the front seat, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel choked back tears after speaking to Shamiya’s mother.

“I got nothing left to say to these moms,” Emanuel told reporters. “I don’t know where they find the strength to go, put one foot in front of another. We’re a better city than that. We’re better people.”

Miller, Shamiya’s great-grandmother, pleaded for an end to the gun violence.

“People got to learn to put the guns down,” Miller told ABC 7. “They do too much damage. They cause too much pain. Not just Shamiya’s life gone, but the boy — whoever did it — his life is gone too, because he’s going to be behind bar.”

Chicago once again boiled over this weekend with gang violence driven by the Mexican cartels and their drug trade. Forty were shot and four killed, including an 11-year-old girl.

The girl, Shamiya Adams, was struck by a stray bullet that entered through a window where she was attending a sleepover.

The violence was so heavy that during a 12-hour period between Friday evening and Saturday morning, 22 people were shot in Mayor Rahm Emanuel's city.

It was during this 12-hour bloodletting that the girl was shot in the head in the West Garfield Park neighborhood.

Six hours later, a second person was gunned down in Chicago. By Sunday afternoon, two more were killed.

Chicago's NBC affiliate reported that between Friday at 12 a.m. and Sunday afternoon, 40 had been shot over the July 18 weekend.

Those killed were 11-year-old Shamiya and three males, 21, 24, and 30 years of age.

Thus far in July, 34 Chicagoans have been killed and 188 wounded.
