A rifle, two possibly related ‘shootings’, and some people hurt.

Is there enough information there to make a meaningful comment?

Wish the cops good luck?

Sad to say, but that would be considered a quiet day in Chicago.

Not sorry, not surprised.... my thoughts and prays go out to all the people living in America with stupid gun laws that are killing you... #wakeup

As Childish Gambino said it, "this is America".

The one place in the US that I would think should be the safest in America, is actually quite rundown and far too many people living there in fear.

Even sadder still is that it's only news, because it happened there, anywhere else and it would have been on the back page if mentioned at all!

I agree.

Too many Americans are not even concerned about mass shootings.

The outcomes of these “shootins” is so predictable in a vague sense that it forms a pattern into the fake or scripted news category. You do not get names, and lately not even the names of police officers involved in the investigation. Even when the culprit is arrested, you do not hear any news about the trial, lawyer, prosecutor, judge, etc. Remember OJ Simpson’s trial? Judge Ito, etc. Not in the so called mass shootings or terrorist attacks. Another predictable outcome is, “shooter was killed, committed suicide, or is at large”.

America is being controlled through fear, and these seem orchestrated to maintain the dose of fear at or above acceptable government imposed levels. It is documentef that they have crisis actors that participate in these events. And 9/11 was one of those places they participated in.

Especially the politicians in most of these cities across the country where this happens. Smh...

Like in El Paso or the mass shooting at the school in Florida or the one in Las Vegas. Or the Sutherland Springs church shooting in Texas which left 27 dead?

Another day, another shooting in the United States of America ... when will this madness end?

The Economist just ranked Washington DC 7th in its Safe Cities Index 2019. LOL!

That's like asking how many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop? Answer: The world may never know.

I thought 2 shootings with 1 killed & 8 wounded sounded like a typical day in Washington DC but this being a news, maybe the city is actually safer than I thought.
