In yet another indication that the anti-police protests in this country are feeding an escalating crime rate, news reports from Chicago indicate that over 60 people were shot and 13 were killed over the weekend.
At least 60 people were shot, 13 fatally, over the weekend in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago.
ABC 7 reports the first fatal shooting took the life of 15-year-old Terrance Malden on Friday afternoon. They note five other teenagers were among those wounded in other shootings that occurred between Friday and Monday morning.
That the entire nation could be outraged by a single case of police brutality, but utterly unconcerned with criminal acts that kill dozens, speaks to the power of media manipulation in our society.
We live in a country that is trying to abolish the police, and it’s getting dangerous out there.
