List 7: Chicago Shooting Victims

List 7: Chicago Shooting Victims

Shootings in Chicago have increased compared to last year. Most of the shootings are not in my neighborhood.

That doesn't make it okay.

Most of the victims are not white.

That doesn't make it okay.

Some of the people shot were criminals.

Even that doesn't make it okay.

Normally I do lists that are 40 items long. 40 names would be less than 15% of those killed by gunfire in Chicago in 2012. That is not enough of an acknowledgment of the problem.

Below are all the names of gunshot victims available on the RedEye Chicago Homicide Tracker as of its last update (August 22, 2012) plus seven more recent names that I found here, here and here, the results of another violent weekend. These are only people who were shot and killed. Many more have been wounded.

36 of these names belong to kids under the age of 18.

Heaven Sutton was only 7.

Aliyah Shell was only 6.

The youngest victims stand out, but all of these lives were cut short by gun violence:
