The shootings, all of which took place during a 24-hour period, bloodied the streets of Chicago but were largely absent from the headlines. Obama hasn’t said a word about these deaths, probably because it was black-on-black crime, which doesn’t translate into political constituency race-bait like a good cop killing a street thug does.
