America’s big cities have devolved into chaotic violence. Just yesterday you read about the carnage in New York City. Woke politicians spent 2020 agitating for violence in the streets of America, and now they can’t put the genie back in the bottle. Places like New York, Philadelphia, and Chicago have seen spikes in violence this year after their radical progressive leadership gave criminals the greenlight in 2020. Bill Hutchison reports in Yahoo! News:
The shootings in New York, Philadelphia and Chicago came as all three cities have seen sharp increases in the numbers of shootings in 2021.
In Chicago, at least 52 people were shot between 6 p.m. on Friday and 11:59 p.m. Sunday, nine of them fatally, according to the Chicago Police Department. Twenty-three of the shootings occurred over just a 4-hour period between 12:26 a.m. and 4:30 a.m. on Sunday, according to incident reports reviewed by ABC News.
Just before 3 p.m. on Sunday, a 7-year-old girl was killed and her 6-year-old sister was seriously wounded when someone opened fire on a parked vehicle they were sitting in the Belmont Central neighborhood on the city’s Northwest Side, police said. The 7-year-old was shot in the chest and later died at a hospital.
One resident who lives near the shooting scene said the barrage of gunfire sounded “like a machine gun going off.”
Regina Broughton told ABC station WLS in Chicago that her granddaughter, Serenity Broughton, was the child who was killed and Serenity’s little sister, Aubrey, is fighting for her life at Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago.
“I’m lost, I’m lost… I mean they were my life, my everything,” Broughton told WLS. “How do you prepare yourself for something like this? She was a beautiful child. Her spirit was beautiful, innocent, everything about her was innocent.”
A 7-year-old girl is dead and a 6-year-old girl seriously injured after they were shot Sunday in Belmont Central, according to Chicago police.
Expectations matter. If criminals believe they will not be held accountable, their actions will reflect that. If politicians signal that they support criminals more than they do the police, criminals hear it and respond accordingly.
Action Line: Don’t wait for your elected officials to save you, they won’t. You must take responsibility for your own safety.
