So far this Chicago weekend... 2 MURDERED, 22 shot & wounded in weekend violence

Two men are dead and at least 22 people wounded in acts of violence that have occurred around the city this weekend.

The weekend’s first fatality occurred early Saturday when a 20-year-old man was beaten and stabbed outside a gas station in the River North area early Saturday. A man who had recently moved to Chicago from Puerto Rico was stabbed to death in a fight with a group of people.

About 3:45 a.m. Saturday, 20-year-old Eric Lopez, was with some other people in a van at the BP gas station at LaSalle and Ontario. A “party bus” pulled into the gas station, gang signs were flashed, and a physical altercation ensued, a law enforcement source said.

The van drove off and the man fled on foot with people from the party bus following him on foot. When the others in the van noticed that he was not in the van with them, they turned back and found the man in the 600 block of North LaSalle Street, suffering from multiple stab wounds, the source said.

A relative of his, a 17-year-old boy, was also stabbed at that location and suffered multiple lacerations, according to police. The boy was treated at a Northwestern Memorial Hospital and released.

Lopez was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 4:18 a.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office. The source said Lopez, who had recently moved to Chicago from Puerto Rico, has no record of a criminal history.

Lift residency now! Really! How much longer do we have to raise our families in this shit hole? It wasn't like this when we took the jobs and they're taking more and more away from us and there's no incentive anymore. It's unconstitutional! Why should the government control where we live? I know I know...we took this job knowing that we had to live here, BUT- look at Englewood. It was once white and safe. If in the next 10 years the nice parts become shitty like that, should we really be forced to raise our kids here? No other major US city has this archaic rule anymore. It's ridiculous. It's a rule ORIGINALLY put in place so that if shit hits the fan, we can get to work faster, but when you have Rogers Park guys working Altgeld Gardens, what's the difference if I drive from Mokena to 004? No difference. The only reason is because WE are the tax base. If we move out, the shitheads who RELY on US to pay taxes so they can take full advantage of the benefits would be no more. Can't stop giving the freebies to the shitheads and have nots. This stupid fucking rule needs to be dissolved and let us out of this fucking SHITHOLE of a city!! PLEASE!

Get all your Irish democrat, O'Sheah, Rugai, Daley loving family members to break the tradition of voting democratic. Sit down and talk to them. Let them know the democratic party is the party of bleeding heart liberals and shines. There's a reason that it's the "Donkey" party.

Eric Looez voted for Obama, then asked him if he thought party busses were safe or not.

Rahm has to go. What has he done that is positive?

A lot of talk. And when he was questioned about Solyndra, he said he is beyond that, he is working for building better schools for the kids.

Nice way to duck valid questions. He won't get my vote -- EVER.

And STILL no concealed carry...or so you think....


I REFUSE to be a victim to the nigger.
I WILL NOT abide by a CITY ORDINANCE that CLEARLY violates my RIGHTS and forces me to become a victim. If CCW is "illegal" in Chicago then you CPD need to go take the guns from the Aldermen and the Mayor. You cant do that you sure in the fuck arent taking mine.

War on drugs vs war on guns. Look at how well the war on drugs has been. Look at Chicago's war on guns. Both pretty much look like abject failures.

"leave boxes of ammo on the street corner in the ghetto."

Open the boxes of ammo first and if you know a reloader have them dump out 3/4 of the powder in most of the shells. Use the left over powder to completely fill remaining rounds. Then deliver the rounds to the ghetto. Hilarity to ensue.
