The big blue blob cities, despite maximum gun control, maximum taxes, and maximum regulation, are in a state of chaos. It turns out that when politicians signal to criminals that their behavior will be tolerated, criminals listen. That’s what happened as politicians around the country spent 2020 bashing police, and defunding their cities’ guardians. Now violence is soaring, and instead of taking responsibility for what they’ve done to encourage criminal behavior, politicians are blaming guns for their humiliation. Paul Sacca reports on the 58 people shot in Chicago over Labor Day weekend. He writes in The Blaze:
At least 58 people have been shot in Chicago during Labor Day weekend, including eight children, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Five people have been killed in shootings since Friday evening, including a 4-year-old boy who was shot in the head.
Around 9 p.m. on Friday, stray bullets sprayed through the window of a home in the Woodlawn neighborhood of Chicago. Two bullets struck 4-year-old Mychal Moultry Jr. in the head. He was getting a haircut at the time, according to Rahman Muhammad, deputy chief of the Chicago Police Department’s Detective Division. The boy’s father held him until paramedics arrived to take him to the Comer Children’s hospital.
“It’s hard enough with this mom and dad sitting in the hospital watching this little fella with tubes all down his body. He is trying to breathe,” community activist Andrew Holmes told WLS-TV about the boy when he was in the hospital.
The 4-year-old boy, who was visiting Chicago from Alabama, was pronounced dead on Sunday.
The Chicago Police Department is asking the public for help in the case to find those who committed the crime. Those with information can submit a tip on the Chicago Police Department website.
The Saint Sabina Catholic Church and the All Kids Matter organization are offering up to a $9,000 reward to bring the shooter or shooters to justice.
“We’re sick and tired every day,” an activist with All Kids Matter said. “We’re staking this hospital out night after night. All these children get shot throughout Chicago.”
There were eight children shot during the bloody weekend in Chicago, including six kids shot in 12 hours from Saturday night into Sunday morning. Two of the wounded minors were recovering at Comer Children’s hospital as of Sunday morning.
So far this year, more than 280 children have been shot in Chicago, 35 of whom have died from their injuries, WLS-TV reported.
