Yet Another Deadly Weekend In Chicago. This Is Not “Justice,” Mayor Lightfoot
(Tea Party 247) – The Democrats would like you to think that the real threat to black lives is Trump supporters and policemen.
The Trump administration, however, has been better for black Americans than his predecessor’s, his predecessor who just so happened to be the first black president.
He’s overseen historically low minority unemployment and criminal justice reform.
He’s excited black voters more than any Republican has in decades.
Meanwhile, policemen, many of whom are black and minorities themselves don’t actually kill black men any more than any other people group.
Despite all the narratives.
No, what really poses a threat to black lives is Democrat policies and the lawlessness they allow.
Chicago couldn’t be a better example of this.
Violence has run rampant on the streets of Chicago for decades, as the mayor’s office has been filled almost entirely by Democrats for a century.
Now that Democrats are calling to defund the police and have been letting violence and crime run amok in the streets of already crime-ridden cities, with no regard for the black lives that are destroyed by these policies, it is even more sickening that this is the party that actually claims to care about minority communities.
Over yet another bloody weekend in Chicago under Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s leadership, at least 60 people were shot, 13 fatally.
According to local ABC 7, the first fatal shooting took the life of 15-year-old Terrance Malden on Friday afternoon.
The outlet noted that five other teenagers were among those wounded in other shootings that took place between Friday and Monday morning.
Breitbart explains more:
The Chicago Sun-Times reports the last fatal shooting of the weekend occurred at 1:45 a.m. Monday, when a 27-year-old man was shot by a passing car as he stood the street. The victim was struck in the head and pronounced dead at the hospital.
A 26-year-old was shot and killed around 12:30 a.m. Monday while he was “standing on the sidewalk…in the 1500 block of South Homan Avenue.”
On July 10, 2020, Breitbart News reported Chicago shootings were up 76 percent against the same time last year at that point.
NBC News reported “nearly all the bloodshed…[was] concentrated in the city’s predominantly Black and brown communities on the South and West Sides.”
At least 70 were shot, 14 fatally, between Friday afternoon and Sunday night alone on the Fourth of July Weekend in Chicago.
