Chicago father shoots son in dog-walking argument


If you thought the streets of Chicago could get no more violent, think again! As horrific news of an altercation between a father and son over who should walk the family dog turned into a shoot-out, on the streets of the Burnside neighborhood of Chicago, resulting in the death of the 22-year-old and leaving the 43-year-old father in hospital, in critical condition proves


For someone who does not live in Chicago this horrific incident is probably hard to believe, but unfortunately it is true and happens day after day on the gun and gang infested streets of this once great American city.


Even more tragic is that the residents of Chicago know this, one local news agency; the Chicago Tribune, recently reported that Chicago is one of the most violent cities in the US going onto say that more than 800 people have been shot so far this year and we haven’t even come to the end of April.


Whatever you think of gun control you do not need to be a rocket scientist to realize that something must be done in-order to stop this insanity, especially when you are talking of a country who banned the sale of Kinder surprise eggs deeming them to be dangerous, surely the weapons used in this senseless act create more than a danger.
