This weekend, gun violence killed three people and wounded another 39 in Chicago. Among the wounded is a 2-year-old girl, according to Sun Times Media Wire.

A family gathered in the Gresham neighborhood just after 5 PM Friday. Suddenly, a drive-by shooter opened fire on the family. They all took cover, including the mother of the 2-year-old girl, who was holding her child at the time. Still, a bullet struck the child in the arm. Another man was also wounded in the leg. Someone among them returned fire with an AK-47. As a result, no one died. However, no one has yet to be arrested for the shooting either.

Then, another drive-by shooter opened fire at a funeral later that Friday. The shooter struck three people, mostly elderly. Now, they are all receiving treatment at nearby hospitals.

Next, yet another drive-by shooter attacked a pair of teenage boys on the street Saturday. One was 17 years old and the other was 18 years old. Bullets struck the both of them around 5:40 PM. The 18 year old was critically wounded in the chest.

BLM co-founder used funds to pay sister, mother, brother and child’s father

Released tax filings show just how Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors spent the millions of dollars raised from “White guilt.” She paid roughly $970,000 to the company of her child’s father to help “produce live events” and other “creative services.”

Over $840,000 was paid to her brother, Paul Cullors, for security services. Daily Mail wrote that “leaders have attempted to justify” the expenses to her brother by saying the “foundation’s protection could not be entrusted to former police professionals who typically run security firms because the BLM movement is known for vehemently protesting law enforcement organizations.”

It was recently disclosed that she bought a $6 million mansion in L.A. for the organization, and denied she took money from BLM for personal matters, although shortly after it was unearthed that she had used the mansion for her own parties.

Cullors also reportedly “reimbursed BLM $73,523 for a charter flight for foundation-related travel, which the organization says she took in 2021 out of concern for COVID-19 and security threats.”

Cullors resigned last year from the organization due to criticism of her finances, such as purchasing multiple homes for herself that cost millions of dollars combined. She also admitted the charity was paying for “employment” of her sister, mother, and brother.

Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation Inc revealed from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021, it ended the fiscal year with nearly $42 million in net assets. “The foundation invested $32 million in stocks from the $90 million it received as donations amid racial justice protests in 2020” adds Daily Mail.
