Chicago Sees It's Single Worst Day in Over 6 Decades

Last weekend Chicago has not only had the deadliest day but, the deadliest weekend in the city's history with 25 murders from Friday, May 29, to Sunday, May 31, with 18 of those being on just May 31, making it the city's deadliest day in 60 years with another 85 wounded during the weekend.

The horrible record was reached on a day Chicago was filled with more protests, riots, and looting in the city. Cause by the death of George Floyd while he was in police custody in Minneapolis.

According to BreitBart

As Chicago devolved into chaos during the rioting on May 31, the city had its bloodiest day in 60 years with eighteen murders in a 24-hour period.

The number of deaths jumps to 25 when added up with the rest of the weekend, Friday, May 29, to Sunday, May 31. An additional 85 were wounded during that weekend, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

But Sunday, May 31, was the most violent day in the city’s known history since such statistics were first compiled back in 1961.

“We’ve never seen anything like it, at all,” senior research director at the crime lab, Max Kapustin, told the Times. “… I don’t even know how to put it into context. It’s beyond anything that we’ve ever seen before.”

The next most violent day in the records occurred on August 4, 1991, when 13 people were murdered.

The victims of the awful murders include a 37-year-old father of two, a college freshman and two 18-year old girls, and many others.

Chicago police spokesman Thomas Ahern said “The level of activity experienced over the last week has been unprecedented and the Department is actively investigating multiple incidents across the city and working to determine the motives in these cases,”

He also said the department was “actively working to seek justice for all the residents impacted, especially those who have been killed or injured by these senseless acts of violence.”
