While the nation is saddened by the tragedies in Connecticut, there are shooting deaths happening all across the country. One place that sees this kind of tragedy on a regular basis is the city of Chicago. This weekend, on Friday and Saturday alone, 10 people were shot, including four teenagers. Some are saying that President Barack Obama should not talk politics in the middle of tragedy, while others are saying that this might be the perfect time to do so.
The Chicago Tribune tells the story:
Someone shot two boys, both 16, about 5:11 p.m. Friday afternoon in the 1700 block of East 71st Place in the South Shore neighborhood on the South Side. Both were taken to Comer Children’s Hospital in stable condition with gunshot wounds to their legs.
