The last 4 days have been among the bloodiest on record for one part of our country that’s smack in the middle of America’s heartland. It was during a weekend when families gathered to give thanks but turned gruesome instead. The death toll recently rose as one struggling victim succumbed to their injuries and became the sixth victim of the attack to perish, as 30 others were left wounded from the horror of this holiday weekend. As people in this area are trying to come to grips with this bloodbath, President Donald Trump is about to address the nation.
While most people were looking forward to this holiday with loved ones that kicks off this special season, Chicago thugs were preparing for a bloodbath knowing that nobody would stop them at their killing game that began the night before the feast and didn’t stop until Sunday. Officials in Chicago have overlooked the problems in their city for too long and it’s been at the cost of countless lives.
As Barack Obama’s former hometown, he didn’t seem to want to address it either and the rising murder rate is also a big part of his legacy having made excuses for criminals and empowered Black Lives Matter. Now that there is a real leader in charge, President Donald Trump isn’t letting murderous thugs get away with this killing spree at a rate of one fatality every hour and 45 minutes in the Windy City, according to stats provided by HeyJackass.com.
The respect for human life is completely absent in the tight gun-controlled city on both ends of the spectrum. Thugs pick their victims at random without concern for age, as was seen this weekend with the unprecedented violence. This lack of respect extends to local government which has done nothing to stop in and removed citizens’ right to defend themselves against it.
“Six men were killed and at least 30 other people have been wounded in shootings across Chicago during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, which began Wednesday night,” ABC Chicago reported.
“The latest killing happened about 10:30 a.m. Sunday in the West Side Austin neighborhood. An unknown male approached an 18-year-old man and shot him several times in the 200 block of North Lockwood, according to Chicago Police. The man was taken to Loretto Hospital, where he died. The Cook County medical examiner’s office did not immediately report the fatality.”
Chicago has become more of a war zone than a place to call home, where it’s not even safe to go outside without risking your life. Trump has previously come out on the issue, announcing that Chicago cops need to be able to do their job, which would stop this crime spree “immediately.” As he’s about to address the threat today from North Korea, the killing spree at home will likely be next on his list.
“President Donald Trump’s claim that a mystery police officer has a quick fix for Chicago’s violent crime problems continued to evolve Wednesday night, as the president claimed the unnamed cop told him ‘if they let us do our job we could stop it immediately,’” CBS reports.
“By being very much tougher than they are right now. They’re right now not tough.” Trump said in an August 2016 interview with Bill O’Reilly. “When I was in Chicago, I got to meet a couple of very top police. I said, ‘How do you stop this, how do you stop this? If you were put in charge… Do you think you could stop this?’ He said, ‘Mr. Trump, I’d be able to stop it in one week.’ And I believed him 100 percent.”
Almost as shocking as the overwhelming crime rate in the city, is the fact that in 90 percent of these cases, where victims were either injured or killed, not a single suspect has been charged, Allen B. West reported. Perhaps this statistic came out at the end of Barack Obama’s presidency, after allowing thugs to run free and excuse it as what disgruntled millennials do when suffering from poverty.
What’s interesting to note is that not a single one of these shootings this month involved a police officer, which is a big statistical change since Trump has been in office. Now, things could be getting a lot worse for these thugs and better for the city suffering under their wrath since our president has vowed to combat the gangster and thug issued that runs rampant in inner cities across the country. He’s one of the first to take a bold stance against it, proving he’s not afraid of these criminals, and it’s only a matter of time before he publicly addresses this issue again after his executive orders on the matter and sending ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms) agents in to help.
Among his pile of important executive orders to get the country back on track, were three crucial ones targeting gangs, drugs, and crimes against cops. “According to CNBC, the executive orders will focus on ‘gang members, drug dealers, drug cartels & crimes against law enforcement officers’,” Bustle reported. “During Jeff Sessions’ formal ceremony after his confirmation, President Trump announced his plans for these three executive orders, which give more authority to law enforcement.”
If anyone is doing more for the black community and proving black lives matter than Barack Obama, it’s his successor, President Trump. Eighty-eight percent of the victims in Chicago are black and were all ignored while Obama was in office, pushing and supporting the Black Lives Matter movement. Trump will single-handedly save countless black lives by cracking down in these thugs who kill other people — many of whom are random and just in the wrong place at the wrong time in the war zone.
