Two people were just pronounced dead with twelve more injured. A shooter has devastated a major U.S. city in people are shocked. This is tragic.
According to Breitbart News, the incident happened “early Sunday morning at a party in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago.” The deadly violence occurred at approximately “4:40 am inside a building.”
Based upon a report from the Chicago Tribune, Breitbart noted the statistics that should make Chicago residents demand a change: “388 people were shot in Chicago January 1, 2021, through February 26, 2021, and that is fatal and non-fatal shooting victims combined. ”
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.
