47 Shot. 5 Dead, Normal Weekend In Chicago

(CNN) -- After an 11-year-old girl was shot and killed by a stray bullet while sitting on a friend's bedroom floor, Chicago officials met Monday to discuss the city's recent surge in gun violence.
The girl was just one of 47 shooting victims in Chicago over the weekend, five of which were fatal, according to statistics released by the Chicago Police Department.

Shamiya Adams was brought to a nearby hospital in critical condition on Friday and pronounced dead Saturday morning, according to Anthony Brucci, a spokesman for Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.

She was visiting a friend when a stray bullet from outside the residence struck her, according to Chicago Police Officer Jose Estrada.

No other injuries were reported at that incident, and no one has been arrested or charged, Estrada said. An investigation is ongoing.

"Every morning, I wake up and I cry," the girl's mother told CNN affiliate WLS. "I just can't believe it."

"She used to tell me every day, give me a letter every day -- how much she loved me, how I was the best mother in the world," Shaneetha Goodloe said, her voice cracking with emotion. "And I will never hear that again from her."

Asked what she would say to anyone who had anything to do with the child's death, Goodloe replied: Speak up.

"If you know anything, you should say something because this wasn't for her. This was not for my child. She was not supposed to die from a bullet to her brain," she said.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel met Monday with the Chicago Police superintendent and community leaders to discuss violence in their city, an event scheduled before the uptick in gun violence over the weekend.

"Our kids only get heard when there is a shot, be it a basketball shot or a bullet shot. There are other kids out there," Emanuel said at the meeting.

"Everybody says, 'So what are you going to do?' As if there's a single thing that's going to resolve this problem," Emanuel said. "It is a communitywide problem, which requires a communitywide solution."

Blame weak gun laws for violence, Chicago's top cop says
Emanuel went on to say that public safety in Chicago goes beyond police and into investments in after-school and summer job programs, gun law enforcement and penalties and community building.

The violent weekend in Chicago follows a deadly Independence Day weekend when more than 60 people were shot and nine were killed, according to police statistics.

Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy blamed weak gun laws for the spurt of holiday violence.

"There has to come a tipping point where this changes," McCarthy said then of the violence. "The illogical nature of what's happening here -- that government can intercede and prevent this from happening is overwhelming. And I refuse to think otherwise in a great country like America that we can continue to allow this to happen -- not just on a state, but on a federal level."

Re: 47 Shot. 5 Dead, Normal Weekend In Chicago

Just another day in the windy city
Jakes Nana and Papa live on Lake Shore Drive and going up there is mostly highway driving, but still scary as hell when you get close to their condo. It's a nicer, seemingly "safe" area, yet this shit just makes you go . You just never know when something whacky is going to happen just driving from point A to B once in the city.

Re: 47 Shot. 5 Dead, Normal Weekend In Chicago

Considering guns weren't allowed in Chicago until recently I don't see how we can blame the gun laws. I don't think it's any one thing. It's poverty, shitty parenting, not enough emphasis on mental health. How do you stop it?

Blame the gun laws! . Chicago still has some of the strictest gun laws of all the major cities in America. Only people that have guns in Chicago are the gangsters.

Re: 47 Shot. 5 Dead, Normal Weekend In Chicago

How to end the shootings!!! Gun control is not the answer!!!

Here are two timelines of our history; you decide!!! or BOTH!!!

Slavery = Civil Rights = Poverty = Welfare = Failed Family = Shot

Government Intervention = No concept of fixing the problem as a community = Growing dependence on gov = Failed Family = Shot

Tread carefully down the gun control road. If you're wrong it will start the second US Civil War! People will fight for the future they want to create and many don't want a country dependent on the government for things beyond security, law, mail, etc....

This could be the new America --

Gun control = Civil war = More poverty = No government = SHOT

Re: 47 Shot. 5 Dead, Normal Weekend In Chicago

Yeah. Gun control. I see how well that works.
Disarm law abiding citizens and then the only people who have guns are the criminals, who do what they want with impunity.

Yet the idiots who scream for more gun control fail to see that logic.

I'm just glad I live in a state where I can have my CWP and my weapons.
I can't imagine living anywhere where I can't defend myself and protect myself against criminals who want to do me harm.
