While President Obama Laments Dual Police Shootings, He Ignores Bloody Chicago

CHICAGO, IL - APRIL 25: People watch as Chicago Police officers and evidence technicians investigate the scene where a 16-year-old boy was shot in the head and killed and another 18-year-old man was shot and wounded on the 7300 block of South Sangamon Street on April 25, 2016 in Chicago, Illinois. Last week Chicago reached over 1,000 people shot since the beginning of the year. (Photo by Joshua Lott/Getty Images)
