Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying two gunmen shown in a video taken on the Wabash Avenue Bridge during a deadly downtown Chicago shooting where hundreds had gathered for a street party. The attack left a 35-year-old Maywood man dead and a 25-year-old woman injured. They had been inside a car. The video, a little more than three minutes long, begins with several people strolling back and forth across the bridge about 2:25 a.m. Sunday in the 300 block of North Wabash Avenue. Bright blue lights of a few police cars twinkle on a street nearby.

Comments:

Hundreds at a street party, long after the Riverwalk, bars and restaurants were closed, in the "good" part of the city.

Chicago is not safe, even in the lakeshore area. It's such a shame. The dems will not be satisfied until every city is in ruins. Disgusting.

"Evening stroll", what an odd choice of words for this situation. I swear these "journalists" must be dropping acid daily.

Yet another instance of systemic racialism, where one race of citizens comprising just 13% of the population is unwilling to accept the values, norms and laws of 87% of the population. Systemic racialism should not be confused with systemic racism, a totally fabricated phrase designed to blame the 87% for the aberrant behavior of the 13%.

Last week, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that the Canada-US border would remain closed for most people until at least Aug. 21, with additional extensions of the border closure possible beyond that date. Basically, it means that non-essential travel can’t take place between the two countries right now, which is no surprise given how the situation regarding the coronavirus pandemic in the US is continuing to spiral out of control. (Snip) Canadian truckers can still continue their work as normal — but, increasingly, they don’t want to.

Amid reports that Chicago activists may have warned police that a shooting was possible at a funeral where 15 people were wounded in the city's Gresham neighborhood Tuesday, Supt. David Brown said the department did have a presence in the area prior to the shootout. According to Brown, two squad cars were stationed at the funeral home and an additional tact team was deployed to the area - standard protocol, he said, for funerals involving victims with potential gang ties."Every gang funeral with any evidence of any kind of gang affiliation is treated similar," he said, adding that such a presence would have been ordered "regardless of warnings given."

Expressway shootings have surged in the Chicago area this year, already surpassing what is normally seen in an entire year and increasing pressure for the installation of better cameras as well as scanners that read license plates.The Illinois State Police have recorded 61 expressway shootings in Cook County this year. That compares with 52 for all of 2019, 43 in 2018, 51 in 2017 and 54 in 2016, a year when gun violence in Chicago hit levels not seen since the 1990s.(Snip) In many instances, the existing cameras can’t provide the make, model or even color of vehicles.”

Chicago Police Department leadership on Monday sought to highlight the attacks on officers during a violent confrontation at the Christopher Columbus statue in Grant Park. After showing six minutes of video footage captured during the clash Friday, Supt. David Brown repeatedly stressed violent protests force the department to divert resources from the South and West sides, where shootings are most prevalent. Seventy people were shot over the weekend, 10 fatally, according to a log maintained by the Chicago Sun-Times. Ten minors were hit by gunfire, keeping with an alarming recent trend in which young children have been shot throughout the city

Mayor Lori Lightfoot wasn’t messing around when she warned of a rollback if young people didn’t stop their risky behavior. Now, bars, restaurants, gyms and salons are paying the price. (Snip) Arwady branded bars “one of the higher-risk scenarios,” in part because they’re a magnet for 18-to-29-year-olds, where cases are rising faster than any other age group in Chicago. “People are not only talking and socializing and having fun. They’re often needing to raise their voice, project and yell. For all of those reasons, they are broadly considered one of the higher-risk settings,” she said.

Though one in four employees in Illinois remain out of work due to the COVID-19 shutdown, raises for thousands of state employees went into effect July 1. The raises, averaging a little more than $1,300 and affecting 38,000 workers, were negotiated between Gov. J.B. Pritzker and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Council 31. The contract included two raises - one general pay increase of 2.1%, costing the state $47 million, and an additional step increase that will cost the state $214 million according to Illinois Policy. Despite the current economic outlook, Pritzker refused to defer the raises. When asked about the additional $261 million cost

California Gov.

A state retailers’ association said while the state gears up to dole out federal aid to local businesses, it’s not listening to things Illinois’ business owners want to be done to foster growth. With a little over two weeks into Gov. J.B.

Washington—The Senate on Thursday passed a $740 billion defense spending bill that includes a provision to remove the name of Confederate leaders from military bases—setting up a showdown with President Trump who is opposed to the move. The GOP-controlled chamber overwhelming passed the legislation with a vote of 81 to 14—well over the number required to override the presidential veto which Trump threatened to wield last month in a bid to stop the bill. The National Defense Authorization Act includes a plan to change the names of army bases named after Confederate soldiers, such as Fort Bragg in North Carolina

Hillary Clinton’s weird and fiercely loyal troupe of admirers is determined to make you love her. They are so determined, in fact, that they will even rewrite the story of her life to make her seem more appealing. The online streaming service Hulu, for example, has optioned the rights to Curtis Sittenfeld’s Rodham, a work of “alternate history” fiction that imagines Hillary Clinton’s life without Bill Clinton. Sittenfeld’s book envisions a world in which an unmarried Hillary Rodham becomes successful and powerful enough to make a run at the White House, all without riding the coattails of her eminently more charismatic and politically savvier real-life husband.

All five of the injured federal agents were hurt Monday during ongoing protests at the Multnomah County Justice Center
