The incidents began on Friday, according to the Chicago Tribune, when a 17 year old girl was kιlled, and two other people hυrt.

“There were also fatal shootings in the South Shore neighborhood Friday night and the Washington Park neighborhood early Sunday, both on the South Side,” reports the Tribune.

Chicago Police Department Spokesman Adam Collins partially blamed gun laws for the viοlence.

“While the city continues to see reductions in crime and violence, there’s obviously much more to be done, and we continue to be challenged by lax state and federal gun laws,” Collins explained.

“No one will rest until everyone in Chicago enjoys the same sense of safety,” he said.

The mother of the 17 year old girl, Gakirah Barnes, who was slain over the weekend said the city has an “on going war.”

“This is something that has become all too normal to everybody, and it needs to stop,” Brown said during an interview with the Times. “We need to come together as a community and just unite to get our children and our streets back.”

Brown recalled her last moments with her daughter.

“I told her that I loved her and to be careful — which is something that I told her every day when she went out on the Chicago streets,” Brown said.

    Condolences to all the families who have become victims to these senseless killings and tragedies that continue to occur. We are experiencing a violent syndrome from a curse that was released upon our ancestors over 300 years ago. There is a way to overcome and subdue these evils. We must read all about it inside of the scrolls of REGULATE! The Manual. This book is designed to break this evil spell which continues to grow in strength and power. This is real, this is REGULATE! You are in here!

    Clarence Allen, Get off the bulls#@* what happen 300yrs ago don’t have a damn thing to do with these blacks killing-up each other today. This is about money and drugs (power) they don’t care who get’s in their way so many innocent people (children) been killed because they know they can get away with all the killing. Yes, you have people fighting back or trying to fight back but it’s like going to the OK CORRAL with big sticks knowing the other men have big guns. Reading books want do this it got to be something else and if they were all Whites kids getting killed everyday believe me something would be done like years ago.
