The Breakdown of Civilization Continues

First in New York - Woman fatally shot by boyfriend on Brooklyn street - New York Daily News

I will never understand the "How dare you live without me" attitude." In this case he was the father of two of her children. They have been seperated for quite some time, but he apparently couldn't let that go. There was an argument a few days prior to this incident.

Her former boyfriend, who suffers from diabetes and has trouble walking, lay in wait, resting on a walker before he saw Grant and opened fire, shocked neighbors said.

Because the only way to settle an argument is with violence.

And next in St. Louis - One mile in St. Louis: Death comes too often on stretch of North Grand

A littany of shootings and murder in one section of St. Louis. And the obligitory misinformation on the state of gun laws.

It was the latest homicide scene along one mile of North Grand — from Sullivan Avenue through West Florissant Avenue — where 46 people have been killed since 2010, including six this year, according to a Post-Dispatch review of St. Louis police records.

The dead range in age from 16 to 69. They were shot outside bars, in homes, in cars, at work. Some were killed in front of children and parents. All but one was Black. [SNIP]

But this area also has among the greatest concentration of gun violence in America.

Can't ignore Ohio - Chillicothe man indicted on charge of shooting son in leg

The victim, who was the defendant's son, got nasty with his mother, and "dad didn't like it," said Bost. The victim and the defendant proceeded to get into it, and Gordon allegedly brandished a firearm before shooting his son in the leg. The bullet proceeded to exit through the victim's posterior.

I'm sensing a theme emerging from these stories.

And finally Chicago - South Loop: Honked horn turns into shooting at Portillo’s.

Portillo's is a chain restaurant in and around Chicago, known for Chicago-style hot dogs, Maxwell Street Polish, and Italian Beef. (I usually got the Italian sauage with hot peppers at Portillo's, though they do make a good Chicago-style dog.)

An argument that started when one car’s driver honked at another in a restaurant drive-thru ended with a shooting Friday night in the South Loop, according to police and witnesses.

The 16-year-old male victim got out of his car when the driver of a black Jeep behind him honked his horn at Portillo’s, 520 West Taylor, shortly after 11 p.m. The Jeep’s driver also got out, and both men began fighting until the Jeep’s driver pulled out a gun and shot the teen in his leg, according to CPD.

Because again, the only way to solve a dispute is through violence. Or something.
