Six people died and 62 are wounded as a result of gun violence this weekend. Out of those wounded, 11 are under the age of 18. Of those killed, two were under the age of 16, according to CBS Chicago.
Young Victims of Gun Violence
First, at 10:30 AM Saturday, a witness found a 12-year-old boy unresponsive in the street. His mother, Fallon Harris shot him twice, once in the head. Prosecutors charged her with first degree murder. Harris claimed she shot him because he would not give her an SD card she reportedly lost.
Then, on Saturday night, about twenty minutes to 10 PM, a drive-by gunman committed a mass shooting. As a result, one woman died and five received injuries. Among the injured was a 15-year-old girl.
Next, at 1:45 PM Sunday afternoon, a boy saw a white Jeep Wrangler while riding his bike. He must have recognized the car, because upon seeing it he immediately dropped his bike and ran from the scene. But he was shot in his leg anyway. He’s in good condition.
Finally, the last shooting of the weekend happened at 12:25 AM Monday. Another 16-year-old boy was walking his dog when he was shot. A gunman drove by in his car, pulled over, and got out of the car to shoot him in the leg. Now, the victim is in good condition. However, police made no arrests for the crime yet.
Chicago Police Respond
Meanwhile, police continued to blame gangs for much of the gun violence. Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown gave two press conferences on the subject of gangs last week, one on Monday and another on Friday.
“Gangs are a significant scourge to the safety of our neighborhoods,” Brown tweeted Friday. “And we’re going to use every resource available to take these criminal networks down.”
Currently, there are charges against four gangs, including the Gangster Disciples, Conservative Vice Lords, Traveling Vice Lords and Four Corner Hustlers.

‘Menstrual Dignity Act’ Includes ‘Transgender, Intersex, Nonbinary and Two Spirit Students’
Oregon’s Menstrual Dignity Act has layers of perversion. In July of last year, democratic Governor Kate Brown signed the “Menstrual Dignity Act” which requires schools k-12 to carry and provide free sanitary products to students with instructions on how they are supposed to be used. The installs have begun, according to a video posted be @libsoftiktok.
The Portland school district stated, “starting next year (2022-2022), products will be available in all restrooms (male, female and all-gender) in every PPS building where education occurs.”

Fox News reports that “Menstrual Dignity for Students” tool kits containing instructions and tips for “menstruation-positive” language for families.
Part of the kit reads: “Importantly, [the Menstrual Dignity Act] affirms the right to menstrual dignity for transgender, intersex, nonbinary, and two spirit students by addressing the challenges that some students have managing menstruation while minimizing negative attention that could put them at risk of harm and navigating experiences of gender dysphoria during menstruation.”
