74 shooting victims: How Chicago emergency rooms handled the most violent weekend of the year

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/l...807-story.html

Quote:
In the span of about an hour Sunday morning, nine shooting victims arrived at Mount Sinai Hospital on the fringes of Chicago’s West Side, where much of the past weekend’s stunning violence unfolded.

The Chicago Tribune crime team tracks shooting victims in Chicago. Data represents number of victims, not shooting incidents. Homicide data can be found here. This page will be updated weekly.

Pretty depressing that even at the start of the sliding chart there's 29 people shot on Jan 1 in 2017. 10 this year.

via reddit, in the larger version of that video, you can actually see a laser go onto the player on the right's chest just at the video cuts to the game and the shooting starts.

Pretty ####ed up

Geez that's haunting. That guy gets shot (and likely killed) just a second after it cuts away.

I just know the Alex Jones types are going to call it a hoax because the camera on the players cuts away just as the shooting starts.

Madden, and video games in general, are highly dominated by white males, so yeah.

I don't understand what you are trying to say. If you are trying to say something, just say it.

Most mass shootings are committed by males.

North America and Europe are most heavily populated by whites.

Odds are, it's going to be a white male.

I'm not trying to say anything other then it seams that most mass shootings are committed by white males, possibly disproportionately so.

I didn't mean any offense, just annoyed with the same story so often...
