    Chicago reaches 500 homicides with fatal shooting

    The last time the city reached the 500-homicide mark was in 2008, when the year ended with 512 killings. Last year, city records show Chicago had 435 homicides.

    On Thursday, officials with the Chicago Police Department said the city was one homicide away from the 500 mark. Hours later, a 40-year-old man was fatally shot in the Austin neighborhood on the city's West Side. Police say Nathaniel Jackson was found on the sidewalk outside a convenience store with a gunshot wound to the head late Thursday.

    It's a very sad milestone that underscores the reality of failed liberal policies.

    Chicago just had its 500th homicide this year.

    In Afghanistan, an active war zone, 2173 Americans have been killed since 2001.

    In the same time period, in Chicago, 6088 Americans have been killed.

    When will the constitution hating gun control idiots wake up and realize the REAL war is right here in America, and the city with the WORST homicide rate also has the most stringent gun control.

    Hey, Mr. Mayor! How's that gun control working for you?

    You think he cares? Chicago has the government they elected. They get what they deserve.
