Sad news out of Chicago

Sep 20, 2013

The Chicago Tribune comes to us with the story that multiple people, among them a 3-year-old child, have been shot at South Side park. "13 shot at a park in Chicago, including a 3-year-old boy who was shot in the head; no fatalities," Steve Weakley with NBC Los Angeles shared more details. "I guess mass shootings warrant nationwide attention EXCEPT for when they happen on Chicago's South Side," freelancer Rania Khalek ascertained. "WTF, Chicago?" reacted Jezebel's Erin Gloria Ryan, and she might easily have spoken for all of us.
