Rather than running off to police the world and trying to fight wars overseas, perhaps we should concentrate on trying to make peace on our own soil. American streets are far more deadly than the trails of Afghanistan it seems.

2 dead, 25 wounded during Chicago weekend violence

CHICAGO (AP) — Two people died and at least 25 others were injured during separate weekend shootings in Chicago.

The Chicago Sun-Times tallied the shootings that took place starting Friday through early Monday.

Jordan Harris, 24, was shot and killed Saturday at a house party on the city’s West Side. Five others were injured.

And 16-year-old Michael Flournoy, a high school football player who lived on the city’s South Side, was also killed Saturday night.

Family members say Flournoy was shot when he got into a fight on his way to the store.

WLS-TV reports a community activist is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the shooter.
