    Chicago: seven-year-old girl shot while trick-or-treating on Halloween

    Chicago: seven-year-old girl shot while trick-or-treating on Halloween | US news | The Guardian

    Child in critical but stable condition after being hit when at least two men fired shots intended for a suspected gang, say police

    A seven-year-old girl is fighting for her life in hospital in Chicago on Friday after she was shot while out trick-or-treating for Halloween, and police are on an intense hunt for at least one gunman.

    The child was hit in the neck with a stray bullet when at least two men fired seven or more shots that were intended for a suspected gang rival nearby, police said.

    Events such as Halloween should simply not be observed in "tough" neighborhoods.

    As soon as it gets dark, no one in such areas should leave their homes.

    The community should ask the police to patrol the streets at that time. Furthermore, the good people in that neighborhood should contribute to hiring a private security service to patrol the streets (they can then contact the police when they see suspicious activity).

    I have read that Chicago was once a wonderful city.

    It was the railroad hub of the nation. Passenger trains from all over the nation converged on the Windy City.

    During Prohibition, the gangsters limited their violence to other gangsters. They did not pick on perfectly innocent people.

    My deepest sympathies to the good people of Chicago.

    Little Village is has probably one of the highest concentration of illegal aliens in the country. The rather ironic thing is that 26th and California is where the court house and County Jail is.

    I guess the strict gun laws and regulations in Chicago aren't helping.

    So what justification is there to take those laws national? I'm not seeing it.

    My deepest sympathies to the good people of Chicago, suffering under leftist rule.

    Thank you for the info.

    Yes, I have read that occasionally bad actors cause trouble outside of the tough neighborhoods.

    From what I heard on the local news yesterday, it's traditional that the area hand out candy to Trick or Treaters. As for the shooting, it was possibly a result of a group of asswipes fighting in the area.
