Police: Three Bodies Recovered from Chicago Waterways in Two Days

Police: Three Bodies Recovered from Chicago Waterways in Two Days

The bodies of three individuals were pulled out of Chicago’s waterways over the past two days, according to law enforcement, and one has been identified.

As ABC 7 reported Sunday:

The Chicago Police Department said its marine unit recovered a body on from Lake Michigan on the Near South Side. The unidentified man was found unresponsive and pronounced dead in the 3000 block of South Fort Dearborn Drive. Detectives are conducting a death investigation, pending autopsy results.

Per the ABC report, two bodies were recovered from different areas of the Chicago River on Saturday, law enforcement said:

A woman’s body was discovered in the water around 11:40 a.m. in the 100 block of North Riverside Plaza in the city’s West Loop neighborhood, police said. The CPD Marine Unit pulled the body from the water and she was pronounced dead at the scene. About 30 minutes later, another female body was found unresponsive in the water in the 2800 block of South Eleanor Street in Bridgeport, police said. She was also pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities identified the second woman as 80-year-old Yuet Tsang.

Officials did not report both Chicago River scenes as being connected, and “Detectives are conducting a death investigation, pending autopsy results, officials said,” the report concluded.

Extremely Bloody Weekend in Democrat Stronghold Sends Shockwaves

Extremely Bloody Weekend in Democrat Stronghold Sends Shockwaves

bloody

The more the police are defunded, the worse the violence gets. In one bloody weekend things got so bad that even Democrats are starting to question the sanity of their leaders. As the shock waves rock through war-torn communities, the windy city looks more like Kabul every day. Chicago is a poster city for exactly why gun laws don’t work. When guns are outlawed, only outlaws carry them.

Another bloody weekend

It was another bloody weekend in Chicago. What makes this one so special is that it’s worse than ever before. As reported Sunday, August 22, at least “40 people have been shot since Friday, five fatally.” That includes two mass shooting episodes.

As verified by what’s left of the Chicago Police Department, “Eleven people — including two teenagers — were shot in two mass shootings overnight from Saturday night into Sunday morning, each including one fatality.”

The first “mass shooting took place shortly before 9:10 p.m. Saturday in a parking lot in the Calumet Heights neighborhood.” Just to warm things up, six people were shot — one of whom died — when two men shot at them from a nearby alley.”

That sounds like something the Tombstone paper would have printed in the thrillingly bloody days of yesteryear. A 39-year-old man “suffered a gunshot wound to his abdomen and was pronounced dead at Jackson Park Hospital & Medical Center at 9:33 p.m.”

The Fire Department transported two bloody men, one 39 and the other 40. The younger was hit in the ankle while the elder got it in his lower backside and leg.

“Three other people took themselves to hospitals with gunshot wounds to their limbs. A man, 32, was in good condition at Advocate Trinity Hospital. Two women, 44 and 25, were in fair condition at the University of Chicago Medical Center and good condition at Advocate Trinity Hospital, respectively.”

The main event

The main event mass shooting went down in East Garfield Park, just before 1 a.m. Sunday. In that one, five people, two of them teens, “were shot in the 3400 block of West Lake Street.” One bloody 29-year-old victim was shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene at 1:34 a.m.

The teens had better luck. “A boy, 17, and a woman, 18 — were taken to Stroger Hospital. The 17-year-old was in fair condition with gunshot wounds to his shoulder and leg. The 18-year-old was in serious condition with a gunshot wound to her torso.”

Conservatives point at that and say “tell me again how safe gun control laws make things?” The Chicago Fire Department needs a ladder to get over all the bloody victims they transport these days. They hauled two middle aged gangsters to Mount Sinai with gunshot wounds.

Others trickled in to emergency rooms all on their own. “The man was outside in the 400 block of South Pulaski Road when he heard shots and felt pain, police said. He took himself to Mount Sinai Hospital with a gunshot wound to the torso.” He didn’t see a thing.

Three more bloody shootings “occurred in the 1200 block of South Lawndale Avenue in the Lawndale neighborhood between 2 and 3:30 a.m.” They made it to the hospital under their own power, wondering why the social workers aren’t keeping the streets safer than the donut chokers did. A 30-year-old woman was minding her own business at 3:30 a.m. when “a person with a gun emerged from a gangway and shot her in the hip and leg.”

She’ll be filing a workers compensation claim for that one. A few more non-life threatening gang incidents round out the picture and unsurprisingly, nobody is in custody. Detectives say they are investigating but they need to send more investigators in to find out what they are investigating. It will turn out to be, “who makes the best donuts in Chicago.” After they solve that burning question they can put their minds back on solving crimes.

Report: Chicago Officers Turn Backs to Mayor Lightfoot After Female Officer Killed

Report: Chicago Officers Turn Backs to Mayor Lightfoot After Female Officer Killed

Chicago police officers turned their backs to Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) when she arrived at the hospital after one officer was killed and another critically wounded, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Officer Ella French was shot and killed Saturday during a traffic stop just after 9 p.m., and her male partner was shot and hospitalized in critical condition.

The Chicago Sun-Times noted that approximately “30 officers” turned their backs to Lightfoot when she arrived at the hospital.

The Sun-Times also pointed out that “Lightfoot tried to talk to the male officer’s father, who himself is a retired Chicago police officer.” Sources who were at the hospital suggested the officer’s father “clearly wanted nothing to do with Lightfoot.”

Fraternal Order of Police President John Catanzara spoke about the officers turning their backs to Lightfoot, saying, “The police officers’ decision to turn their backs on the mayor while waiting with the family on the 7th floor was significant. Turning their backs on the mayor was an excellent example of how the hundreds of police officers felt waiting outside the hospital.”

NBC 5 points out that Catanzara told Fox News that Lightfoot was told not to go to the 7th floor as that was where the critically wounded officer’s family was waiting for news from doctors. Lightfoot went anyway, leading Catanzara to believe “[the Mayor] still thought she knew best and went up there against the advice of family.”

The Chicago Tribune reports that Lightfoot’s office released a statement Monday, addressing the officers’ reaction to her by saying, “In a time of tragedy, emotions run high and that is to be expected.”

Mayor Lori Lightfoot Blames ‘Guns’ After Chicago Officer’s Death

Mayor Lori Lightfoot Blames ‘Guns’ After Chicago Officer’s Death

Hours after Chicago police officer Ella French was killed during a traffic stop, Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) blamed “guns,” describing them as “a common enemy.”

Breitbart News reports that French was working a traffic stop Saturday night just after 9 p.m. when at least one suspect opened fire on her and the male officer who was her partner. The gunfire proved fatal for French and left the male officer in critical condition.

There were three suspects in the car from which the gunfire came: two males and a female. CNN notes that all three suspects are in custody.

Mayor Lightfoot reacted to the attack on the officer by tweeting:

She then followed the first tweet with one in which she zeroed in on guns, writing, “Some say we don’t do enough for the police. Others say we do too much. All of this must stop. We have a common enemy: it’s guns & the violence they bring.”

Chicago, like all of Illinois, has a red flag law, a 72-hour waiting period for gun purchases, and a Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card requirement for would-be gun buyers. The process for getting a FOID card includes a background check. And Cook County, Illinois, the county in which Chicago is located, has an “assault weapon” ban.

Moreover, on August 3, 2021, Breitbart News observed that Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D) signed universal background checks legislation, thereby criminalizing private gun sales that are conducted without first undergoing an FBI background check.

The universal background check gun control takes effect in 2024.

Breitbart News reported the female officer and a male officer were shot during a traffic stop.

The Chicago Tribune pointed out three suspects, two males and a female, were in the car the officers had stopped and at least one of the three opened fire on the officers. The female officer was killed and the male officer was hospitalized.

The Herald-Review noted that the officers were able to return fire, wounding one of the suspects.

On Sunday morning, Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown held a press conference on the shooting of the officers and said the identity of the deceased would not be released until her family had been apprised of what had happened.

ABC 7 explained that Saturday night’s attack on the police officers “marks the 27th time a Chicago police officer has been shot at this year and the 11th time an officer has actually been shot.”

WATCH: Body Cam Video of Chicago PD Shooting 13-Year-Old Released

WATCH: Body Cam Video of Chicago PD Shooting 13-Year-Old Released

Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) is calling for Chicago police to reform foot pursuit policy amid the unrest that followed a video release of an officer shooting a 13-year-old on March 29, 2021.

CBS News reported Lightfoot called for the reform on Thursday, the same day on which body cam video of the shooting was released.

The 13-year-old, named Adam Toledo, was shot by an officer about 2:30 a.m. following a foot chase after “reports of gun shots.”

Reuters noted the pursuing officer, Eric Stillman, allegedly ordered Toledo to stop then fired one shot, which proved fatal.

On Thursday, the same day the body cam video was released, the Chicago PD “placed an arrow on a still frame, pointing to what appeared to be a handgun in Toledo’s right hand before Stillman opened fire.”

The Chicago PD commented, “838 milliseconds between gun shown in hand and single shot.”

Minutes into the video “the officer shines a flashlight on a handgun feet from where officers worked frantically to save Toledo’s life.”

The Toledo family attorney, Adeena Weiss Ortiz, said, “I don’t know if the officer had enough time or not. All I know is the officer is trained to not shoot an unarmed individual.”

France 24 quoted Lightfoot admitting there is much that is not known about the incident:

We live in a city that is traumatized by a long history of police violence and misconduct. So while we don’t have enough information to be the judge and jury of this particular situation, it is certainly understandable why so many of our residents are feeling that all too familiar surge of outrage and pain. It is even clearer that trust between our community and law enforcement is far from healed and remains badly broken.

CBS News observed that Lightfoot also called for police foot pursuit reforms, saying, “Foot pursuits put everyone involved at risk: the officers, the person being pursued, and bystanders. We have to do better and I’ve charged the superintendent with bringing me a policy that recognizes how dangerous this is. We can’t afford to lose more lives,”
