Perfectly Safe Streets, Except For The Whole "Hail Of Bullets" Thing

The juxtaposition of the "unicorns 'n' rainbows" bizarre and the bloody reality of life in ChiTown...first from WGN:

25 people were shot in Chicago overnight.
19-year-old Jaleel Beasley and two other young men were hit just after 2 a.m. outside a bar in the Lawndale neighborhood.  Beasley died later at Mt Sinai hospital.
The other two men were brought to Stroger Hospital and are in stable condition
Two other people were shot in the same area within 20 minutes of the first incident. Police are investigating the possibility that the two events were related.
So far, no arrests have been made in connection with any of the shootings.

Rahm and his merry band of Ivory Tower  problem-solvers are diligently working to make Chicago's streets safer, not by controlling the horrific violence stalking the city's neighborhoods, but by doing this:

Eliminate all pedestrian, bicycle, and overall traffic crash fatalities within 10 years.

Really. I'm not making this up.

  1. I'm sure it will be just as effective as their gun violence plan. They have gun control, and that's just working so well.
