Tragically, a major U.S. city was just devastated. Four people were shot and killed and 17 were left injured in the violence. This is heartbreaking.
“At least 17 people were shot, four fatally, Friday into Sunday in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago,” reported Breitbart News. One of the victims included a 16-year-old boy “following an argument in an apartment.”
Over the weekend, three others were shot and killed — two 32-year-old men and another man whose age was not yet revealed. Citizens of Chicago must demand that Lightfoot stop defunding the police.
Here’s the truth: 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 cannot be argued against.
It is no wonder that Americans are fleeing cities like Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles. Once the envy of the world, they are hotbeds for anti-business policies, high taxes and cost of living, and ever-increasing violence.
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.
