From The Liberty Daily:

Violence Erupts in Chicago as Hundreds of Thugs Destroy Parts of the City, But You Couldn’t Tell by Corporate Media News Coverage
As I write this article, Fox News has a top story about a viral video with a guy fighting off four carjackers. CNN has a Trump Derangement Syndrome story about one of his attorneys recusing himself. MSNBC’s headline story asks the question no sane person would ever really ask, “Is Melania Trump done?”

All of this is apparently bigger news than a huge series of riot-level violence happening in Chicago Saturday night into Sunday morning. Here’s a glimpse:

Lots more at the site - videos and photos.

The Chicago FOX News affiliate is covering some of the story:

Hundreds of teenagers flood into downtown Chicago, smashing car windows, prompting police response
Hundreds of teenagers flooded into Downtown Chicago on Saturday night, smashing car windows, trying to get into Millennium Park, and prompting a major police response. At least one person in a car was attacked.

Shots were fired near the corner of Madison and Michigan, and FOX 32 Chicago decided that it was unsafe to keep our news crew on the scene.

Two teens were wounded by gunfire in the crowds in the first block of East Washington Street. A 16 and 17-year-old boy were taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in fair condition with gunshot wounds.

Website Hey Jackass does a wonderful job of keeping track of Chicago crime statistics
They are showing for April to date (16 days)

April to Date
Shot & Killed: 31
Shot & Wounded: 111
Total Shot: 142
Total Homicides: 33

No mayor would be happy with those numbers.
Business as usual for Chicago though...
