Shootapalooza in Chicago

HeyJackass! brings us the super-spreader event details from this past weekend. Shootapalooza Weekend

After taking last year off in order to protect Grandma, the festival has returned so that suburban teen and 20-somethings can get shitfaced and/or overdose and partake in an expensive ambulance ride to Northwestern. Meanwhile, another festival of sorts is never cancelled and will proceed to put in a solid audition for the headliner weekend of the year.

Final Shootapalooza tally: 10 killed, 47 wounded
Shootapalooza 2020: 10 killed, 28 wounded
Shootapalooza 2019: 8 killed, 47 wounded

The image above is of the crowds at Lollapalooza in Chicago's Grant Park. Click on it for a somewhat larger version. Mayor Groot (Lori Lightfoot, that is) waited until AFTER the city collected all the revenue from Lollapalooza before she reinstated COVID-19 restrictions. Because of science. I'm sure her reason was based on science, and had absolutely nothing to do with the sad state of Chicago's finances. (Though the multi-billion-dollar handout that we, the taxpayers of the USA, gave Chicago should help with the money problems.)

  1. I used to read the atrocious articles on the Chicago Carnage (wouldn't that make a great name for a tv series?) and noticed how their kill rate hovered around 15-16%. This event came in at 17.5% so either their aim is getting better or they are not shooting the little children! I can't understand why black Americans in Chicago put up with living in a killing field! Maybe this year will be the one that causes everyone to go to the brink of insanity and STOP and say "no more"! If the gangs want to have open war on each other then declare "war zones" and let them get at it - most vicious wins, but leave the neighborhoods alone and let people live their lives freely!
