One hundred children have been shot in Democratic controlled Philadelphia so far this year, resulting in injury and death. It has become a pattern this year that ever increasing number of people in general being shot in cities that have long been run by Democrats.

You can only favor criminals above law abiding citizens for so long before the criminals start taking advantage of the fact. New York and Chicago are two prime examples of the ever increasing violence in liberal cities. At the same point last year, there were just 59 children shot, an increase of almost 100%.

The latest child casualty was seven-year-old Zamar Jones, who was shot to death in an incident involving three men. On Wednesday a six year old girl was out playing with friends when she was shot in the chest. She is still in the hospital. When Democrats choose to ignore the rampant violence during the riots, it emboldens the criminal element to shoot into a crowd of people without a second thought.

Our children’s future or the lack thereof is enough reason to crack down on violent crime, but they never seem to do. Instead they just try to pin the blame on Trump, which they would never have done had Hillary not been humiliated in 2016.

Philadelphia Police First Deputy Commissioner Melvin Singleton lamented that “this culture of violence where we have adults are willing to shoot indiscriminately into crowds of people without care or concern for women or children.”

Chicago in particular has become a virtual shooting gallery, with the body count and the number of those who have been wounded rising to all new heights. Sixty shootings in a single weekend has become as common as Adam Schiff’s lies.

  • Trying to find a way to get in touch with you. My son told me that Congress is trying to add something to the equal rights law. They’re wanting to protect transgender ((ok) and pedifiles. Would put pedophilia in a gray area. They’re pushing it fast before Barr gets them on trafficking. PLEASE find out about this and get the word out!

    • this is simply false.

      There IS some murmur of trying to somewhat somewhat/somehow de-stigmatize what some call “non-offending pedophiles” making it easier for them to get help. (which we should ALL want)

      There are many who have these urges/attractions, but know they are wrong, and do not ever want to act on them – Getting help for pedophilia is risky in the U.S., where therapists are obligated to report people they deem a threat to children.

      I’m in no way trying to normalize these urges, nor do I understand them, but I do recognize there are people who have them, and do agree the people who have them must be able to seek early and effective mental help, before they ever act on those urges.

      Many people with these ‘urges’ feel unable to get help, which isolates them, leading to an increased danger of acting on them.

      Once a person crosses the line from impure thought, and actually improperly touches a child… That’s a whole different story. Yes they should receive mental help – but they also should receive jail time

  • I do not understand why this is allowed to continue. There should be enormous police presence and arrests. I don’t know how to fix it but it has to be.

  • I’m embarrassed as hell for my country. Makes us look like a 3rd-world shithole. How do you suppose this plays in Helsinki? Tel Aviv? Melbourne? Taipei? And even worse — in Tehran, Pyongyang, Moscow and Beijing? They must be laughing their asses off!

  • Tell me, how many “Major Cities”are Republican Controlled? Answer seven of the top 100. So, it may be more noteworthy if Philly was “Republican Controlled” than if there were 100 kids who were shot, wouldn’t it?
