This is how disgusting and dangerous the Democrat-run city of Chicago is… A car full of gang members drove up to two unarmed women and shot them dead for daring to stand on a street corner to protest gun violence.
The two women — both mothers who had eight children between them — were part of a group of moms and local citizens who had organized to protest gang violence. They staked out a street corner to “take back” to show the gangs that they intended to “take back their neighborhood.”
But Chantell Grant, 26, and Andrea Stoudemire, 36, members of the group Mothers/Men Against Senseless Killings (MASK), were gunned down last Friday by the gangs they opposed.
The shooting victims were standing at the corner of West 75th Street and South Stewart Avenue when a car drove by and gunfire erupted.
The Chicago Police Department confirmed that a blue SUV drove up to the corner and the occupants of the auto shot the women in a drive-by shooting.
Along with the two women killed, a 58-year-old man and a 30-year-old man were also wounded.
The CPD was not sure the women were targeted and noted that the the 30-year-old man was recently released from prison.
CPD spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told the media: “This is still very much under investigation, but at this time, we have no evidence that we can point to that suggests the women were the intended targets. We also have no evidence to the contrary.”
“One of the males in the group who was non-fatally injured has a history with CPD and was recently released from prison,” he added.
MASK founder Tamar Manasseh called the double murder “one of the saddest nights of my life,” the Daily Mail reported.
Well, there you have it. The city with the strictest gun laws in the nation, all run by Democrats.
That is what you have to look forward to for the whole country unless the Democrat Party is destroyed.
