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.
