This is from Father Tom Nangle former revered Catholic Chaplin of the Chicago Police Department. “THERE IS SUCH A THING AS COMPASSION FATIGUE. CHICAGO IS NO LONGER ABLE TO BE SAD, STUNNED, SHOCKED, OR OUTRAGED. WE NESTLE IN WITH EVIL, AND GET COMFORTABLE WITH IT.” FATHER TOM NANGLE–

In a span of just a few weeks in Chicago, two police officers, five children, and two seniors were shot down in cold blood on Chicago’s streets. All victims of Chicago’s ongoing violence by Gang Terrorists. Twenty days so far in August, sixty-five souls were murdered and 355 wounded. But for me, the tears and anger were more focused. The two children that were murdered were seven and nine years old. The wounded children were seven, six, and nine years old. Two are still fighting for their lives. One of the two police officers, Ella French, died at the scene, her partner is currently still fighting for his life with serious head wounds. It was a traffic stop for expired license plates. Neither officer had their weapons out, shot point-blank. Both shooters are in custody. The two seniors, one seventy and one sixty-seven were both in their vehicles when shot and killed in what is listed as victims of GANG CROSSFIRE. Below were some of the shocking headlines even for a city that has lost its soul to violence.
While Chicago’s politicians and local gadflies are giving speeches the constant sophistry keeps spewing out of their mouths. The usual suspects are of course to blame the main culprit in all the rhetoric is always the ROOT CAUSES those elusive ROOT CAUSES THAT THEY HAVE BEEN HUNTING FOR OVER 60 YEARS. All the while those ROOT CAUSES continue to murder, shoot and continue on, with escalating violent criminal behavior with no solutions in sight. Mary Mitchell the Columnist from the Times had this to say recently about the situation.
Mary and I do not always agree but we sure are on the same page with these words.” I’M TIRED OF BLAMING POVERTY, LACK OF JOBS, AND COMMUNITY DISINVESTMENT FOR THE DEMONIC ACTS TAKING PLACE ALL OVER THE CITY.” In my opinion, Mary left out blaming guns and the police. DEMONIC ACTS is in my opinion right on the mark although the Grandmother of the murdered SERENITY BOUGHTON and her critically wounded sister had this to say. See below
Common sense would dictate that if bad and criminal behavior has no consequences then even a challenged imbecile should know you JUST GET MORE OF IT. In Chicago’s case, they are getting an unprecedented typhoon of bad behavior while the ROOT CAUSES continue the mayhem. A random day in court last week by a sharp reporter posted this story. It’s an everyday occurrence in the Criminal Justice system in Cook County today. Look at the headline below and it tells the story of why Cook County needs new leadership.
The photo above is the scene of a shooting in a Chicago neighborhood. Imagine a neighborhood near you where you live and feel comfortable moving around. See all those little YELLOW FLAGS THOSE ARE ALL SPENT BULLET CARTRIDGES. THERE ARE OVER 100 OF THEM. Any one of us could have been walking by when the Terrorist Thugs decided to kill a few rivals. The sad thing is it’s happening on average 20.5 times a day in Chicago. The ROOT CAUSES are all around but leadership just cannot seem to find them and when they do they send them right back out. Stay safe—
