-Lurid Crime Tales-
At Least 17 Shot, Four Killed, Friday into Sunday Across Lori Lightfoot's Chicago
[BREITBART] At least 17 people were shot, four fatally, Friday into Sunday in Mayor Lori Lightfoot

’s (D) reliably Democrat Chicago, aka The Windy City or Mobtown
...home of Al Capone, the Chicago Black Sox, a succession of Daleys, Barak Obama, and Rahm Emmanuel...
.According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the first fatality occurred at 8:45 p.m. Friday, following an argument in an apartment. A 16-year-old boy was allegedly beaten as a result of the dispute, and when he expeditiously departed at a goodly pace he was pursued, shot, and fatally maimed.

A 32-year-old male sitting in a vehicle "at a gas station in the first block of West 111th Street" was shot just before 10 p.m. Friday when someone in another vehicle pulled up beside him and opened fire. A passenger got behind the wheel and drove the 32-year-old to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
He's dead, Jim!

NJ teen confesses to spearheading plot to vandalize Midwestern synagogues
[IsraelTimes] 19-year-old from New Jersey admitting on Friday to coordinating members of the neo-Nazi
...adherents of a philosophy that was seen even at the time as pure evil, which makes them either consciously and purely evil, or attention-seeking ratbags. Pick one, or both....
group The Base
...how queer — there’s an Antifa group by the same name. Could it be that stupidly vicious minds think alike, or is someone trying to be clever?
to vandalize at least two Midwestern synagogues.
Neo-Nazis vandalizing Jewish property — check.
Richard Tobin, of Brooklawn, pleaded guilty to conspiracy against rights, the News Agency that Dare Not be Named reported. He faces up to 10 years in prison.

Tobin said he called his efforts "Operation Kristallnacht," a reference to the pogrom throughout Nazi Germany in 1938 that many refer to as the start of the Holocaust.

He added that he was "triggered by the state of the country" and described feeling angry after seeing large crowds of Black people at a New Jersey mall.
Wait... what?! He’s mad about African-Americans in New Jersey acting like they’re as human as anyone, so he goes after Joooooos halfway across the continent? How does that make sense?

Southeast Asia
At least 18 reported dead, multiple injured as Myanmar continues crackdown on anti-coup protests

Al Ahram has the details:
Myanmar police fired on protesters around the country on Sunday in the bloodiest day of weeks of demonstrations against a military coup and at least 18 people were killed, the U.N. human rights
...which are usually open to widely divergent definitions...
office said.

Police were out in force early and opened fire in different parts of the biggest city of Yangon after stun grenades, tear gas and shots in the air failed to break up crowds. Soldiers also reinforced police.

Several maimed people were hauled away by fellow protesters, leaving bloody smears on pavements, media images showed. One man died after being brought to a hospital with a bullet in the chest, said a doctor who asked not to be identified.

"Police and military forces have confronted peaceful demonstrations, using lethal force and less-than-lethal force that — according to credible information received by the UN Human Rights Office — has left at least 18 people dead and over 30 maimed," the U.N. human rights office said.

Police also hurled stun grenades outside a Yangon medical school, sending doctors and students in white lab coats scattering. A group called the Whitecoat Alliance of medics said more than 50 medical staff had been arrested.

Three people were killed at Dawei in the south, politician Kyaw Min Htike told Rooters from the town. Two died in the second city of Mandalay, Myanmar Now media and a resident said. Resident Sai Tun told Rooters one woman was shot in the head.

Police and the front man for the ruling military council did not respond to phone calls seeking comment.

Police broke up protests in other towns, including Lashio in the northeast, Myeik in the deep south and Hpa-An in the east, residents and media said.

State-run MRTV television said more than 470 people had been arrested on Saturday. It was not clear how many were detained on Sunday.

A day after the junta announced that Myanmar's U.N. envoy had been fired for opposing its rule by calling for action from the United Nations
...a lucrative dumping ground for the relatives of dictators and party hacks...
, the foreign ministry announced that diplomats at several other embassies were being recalled.

It gave no reason, but some diplomats have been among civil servants to join a Civil Disobedience Movement that has paralysed a swathe of official business.
