Chicago - The city of Chicago is taking a more hands-on approach to treat gunshot victims. The Office of Emergency Management is installing more than 400 wall-mounted "bleeding control" kits in buildings across the city. The emergency medical kit locations include City Hall, public libraries, medical clinics and more. Each kit has enough supplies to treat eight victims. Ten people were killed and 58 others were wounded in Chicago shootings over the weekend. Chicago crime reporting website says 608 people have been killed in Chicago shootings so far this year with nearly 3,000 others who were shot and wounded.

So, what's in these "bleeding control" medical kits? Do Chicago gangsta gangs include gangsta medics who patch up their wounded troops? 100% chance there's some good stuff, valuable stuff, in these "bleeding control" medical kits that any gangbanger worth his illegal 9mm could put to good use for the benefit of his community, his gangbanger community, that is.

Medical kits??? How about hiring police and stopping the carnage instead of treating gunshot wounds. Or is that too un-woke?

Chicago probably requires proof of covid vaccination before anyone is allowed to use a kit to try to save anyone's life.

Bleeding Control Medical Kits installed in public buildings? Most of the places names are government run places. They will not be open or accessible when the shots start going off on Friday night into Sunday night. They are all closed at night and most on the weekends. Lots of medical clinics (except for public hospitals) are also closed at night, especially on the weekends. Also, given the thoughtfulness of the gangbangers in Chicago, they will probably break into the buildings where the kits are placed and steal them for the supplies to use on their gang friends who manage to live through their bullet wounds. This is akin to giving syringes to junkies.

I predict that they will be stolen or vandalized before a week is out. If you don't know how to control serious (arterial) bleeding, and have the proper med kit in your should. Combat tourniquet, packing gauze, chest seals, pressure bandages and knowledge of how to use them can save a life in a serious auto accident or gunshot situation. The trauma first aid training is pretty available.

#12, there is no such thing as "gun violence". Guns are entirely neutral tools. People are violent, and sometimes, when doing violence they may use guns.

How will Chicago keep the bleeding control kits from being stolen? Here's an even better question: What Chicago politicians and/or their cronies are making money off selling the kits to the City of Chicago? In Illinois, it isn't about stopping crime. It's about being in power and making money by hook or by crook. That goes for donkeys and the elephants (however, there are fewer elephants than there are donkeys in Illinois).

Chicago — Just 29 people are hospitalized with COVID-related illness in Chicago, a city with a population of 2.7 million people. Despite the fact that just .001 percent of Chicago residents are hospitalized with COVID-19, the city’s indoor mask mandate remains, with no word on what specific circumstances will trigger its demise. The indoor mask mandate went into effect on August 20 in Chicago. (Snip) In a state with a population of 12.7 million people, COVID-related hospitalizations represent .015 percent of the population.

Troopers must assess risk based on a 14-point check list. They also cannot pursue for traffic offenses, while Indiana State Police can, depending on the severity of the offense. In Chicago, police are not allowed to chase a vehicle unless it’s first approved by a supervisor who must determine if the risk of a chase is greater than the risk of letting someone escape.

Obama stated that the crisis at the Del Rio border is “heartbreaking” and that the system, overall, “is dysfunctional.” “It’s the reason I proposed comprehensive immigration reform. It’s the reason Joe Biden proposed it during his administration, and it’s something that is long overdue,” Obama stated, according to GMA. The former president went on to say the situation at Del Rio is a reminder that more work needs to be done and that President Biden understands the situation better than anyone. “As big-hearted as he is,

Joe Biden is the worst president we’ve had since the last worst president we had: Barack Obama, who was the worst president since Jimmy Carter. It has escaped no one’s notice. Covid lockdowns and mandates; the destructive, inhumane, callow, disgusting bug-out of Afghanistan; generational theft-level spending; and tyrannical diktats have touched everyone – except Hollywood and D.C., naturally. Turn that flag upside down, Australia here we come.

Well, with that disgusting video we found out about Joe’s hairy legs but it seems that at least his hands appear to look less hairy back in January when he got his first vaccine shot.
