NEW YORK DAILY NEWS: Only 52 Shot in Chicago Over the Weekend Marks "Progress"


If you're seeking proof that at least one of Michael Savage's book titles was spot-on, look no further than this celebration of a Blue State Success Story™:

Shootings over Memorial Day weekend in Chicago left seven people dead and another 45 injured, a count that surprisingly marks progress for the city — and a drop in the number of shooting victims compared to the same period last year.

Monday — Memorial Day — was the most deadly day of the long weekend, with 24 people shot, five of them fatally, the Chicago Tribune reported.

But these totals are lower than 2016’s tally. Last year, there were 71 shootings over Memorial Day, according to data gathered by the Chicago Tribune. Six were fatal.

So, by author Megan Cerullo's reckoning, more dead in 2017 versus 2016 equals "progress".

Perhaps it's the new math.

Oh that's right: as the leader in #FakeNews -- CNN -- tells us, "Math is Racist."

But let's continue:

“While any act of violence in this city is one too many, we were able to make this Memorial Day Weekend safer compared to last year with a nearly 30 percent reduction in both shooting incidents and shooting victims,” Superintendent Kevin Navarro said in a news conference.

No mention of the fact that Chicago is a "sanctuary city" for illegal alien crime gangs and a hub for the Mexican drug trade (e.g., "Why Mexico’s Sinaloa Cartel Loves Selling Drugs in Chicago").

Maybe one day, the rocket scientists in old media will read some academic papers so they can get to the bottom of Blue State violence.

I can dream, can't I?

Apparently there is a never ending supply of shooting victims in Chicago. I think ultimately, the GOP is the beneficiary of this carnage.
