He has been shot. Stunning violence just rocked the nation and it all happened in broad daylight. A major U.S. city has borne the brunt of the anarchy.
“One of our own was shot in the @ChicagoCAPS06 police district parking lot earlier today, as a Chicago Police sergeant sustained a graze wound to the chin area,” said Chicago Police Superintendent David O. Brown via Twitter.
Brown said that the officer involved in the incident “was transported to a local hospital in good condition” and while police “are investigating, no offenders in custody.” Tragically, this violence has become a common occurrence in Chicago.
According to Breitbart News, based upon a report from the Chicago Tribune, “nearly 40 were shot over the entire weekend, with four fatalities.” You have to wonder what Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) is even doing these days.
The truth is, if you hamstring your city’s police and make it difficult for citizens to defend themselves, crime will only increase — and it is the innocent people who will suffer greatly. This point cannot be argued against.
Something has to change. The residents of Chicago need to demand more from their leaders at the city and state level. If they do not, this once-thriving metropolis and business hub will continue spiraling into oblivion.
