Tuesday’s violence stands out only because of the shooting deaths of two more young teens, both students at Simeon High School, another is in critical condition with a leg wound. I say only, because of the alarming number of teens among the 3,422 persons shot in Chicago this year. Hundreds of the murdered victims are also teenagers. If there is a more dangerous city than Chicago in America or the world for that matter I’m not aware of it. There just never comes a time when anyone in a leadership role from the Mayor on down to a noisy, honking, clueless City Council gets angry enough to say “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.” Chicago as everyone knows is known as the Windy City, and indeed it is the political wind that keeps blowing away that LAST STRAW THAT NEVER BREAKS THE CAMEL’S BACK. It’s like okay well yea! Winter is coming, Chicago’s great enemy of violence. Very sad but true.
Look to the headline I included with this post, a frustrated CITIZEN said those words most of us have been yelling about “THIS IS REALLY SAD AND NOBODY IS DOING ANYTHING ABOUT IT.” No area of the city has been a safe haven. If it’s not shootings it’s armed carjacking, there have been over 1,200 of them with only 66 arrests. The weekend has produced the 55th mass shooting of 2021, in which at least four people are shot in one instance and as many as FIFTEEN. Here are those words again- “AND NOBODY IS DOING ANYTHING ABOUT IT.” Most of Chicago’s Gang Terrorists are completely unknown to most of Chicago’s leaders, remember that old saying “THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A BAD BOY” I can tell you that one-celled organisms have more of a conscience than Chicago’s gang terrorists, they are capable of vicious violence and then retire to a nice dinner afterward.
Chicago’s Mayor is wrong on so many fronts but one thing is for sure she’s never uncertain. One major plan after another to try and curb the mayhem in her city, by her and her hand-picked Police Superintendent has failed again and again. Her latest plan which could only be described as hilarious by most savvy Chicagoan’s is announcing she will sue the gang leaders in CIVIL court and take away their assets. A ploy that has failed miserably whenever it has been attempted. She got a headline though and now can say WELL AT LEAST I’M DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT. Gangs dealing in narcotics, extortion, the sale of weapons, and an untold number of criminal enterprises are a CASH-only business. The only thing Gang Terrorists fear is death and incarceration. The chances of going to jail in Cook County are slim and next to nothing and the Mayor knows that for sure. However, she cannot bring herself to criticize her fellow Democrat States Attorney Kim Foxx, hence she’s going to talk “CIVIL” court to avoid that little nasty situation.
For those Chicagoans that are hoping that soon very soon, enough will be enough, my advice is to realize that the light at the end of the tunnel is so dim it’s barely visible. Chicago’s violence has the appearance of being malignant and incurable. The people of Chicago deserve more than speeches and failed plans and idiotic leadership. City residents are starting to lose the ability to be shocked.
