Chicago Has Mass Shooting, Again- Media Is Silent!

Mass Shooting with 14-17 shot… still developing! 418 Homicides this year (and climbing) with 1,988 shot! Is it a jihad or something else?

Why isn’t the national media talking about this? And what about violent crime in the other big cities? Local news seems to be the only ones reporting it, and doing so like the weather. Why?

Why aren’t we sending troops to Chicago and other major US cities whose combined death toll this past year (and years) are greater than Ukraine, Israel, and Gaza? Do we need to have congress send war funding to major cities? Who do we send it to? Do we send it to the Mayors? Or do we send it to the Governors? Or do we raise funds and donate to the people who are in the war zones? Do we provide them a way out?

Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation, so we can’t take their guns? So, do we send in negotiators for Chicago peace treaties? What’s the answer?

Something is not right with the way the US is always looking at the middle east and send in armed troops while at the same time trying to disarm the police here at home! Many cities have been war zones with catch and release programs designed to create more of the same. Isn’t it time to look at stopping the crime we have right here in our own cities? Or do we have to call it a jihad before it is addressed? Well that just may be coming as President Trump has warned us that we have all the border crossers ready for action dispatched in a city near you!

As of Oct. 26, at least 35,275 people have died from gun violence in the U.S. this year, according to the Gun Violence Archive –

This is an average of almost 118 deaths each day. That’s not including stabbings, and other violent murders!

Most people have no clue of the numbers of violent crimes and death toll that plays out in America on a daily basis. Only when they want to take away our guns do they show the numbers of crimes. The reality is that the crime is so bad, citizens need to have a firearm to protect themselves.

Violent crime in the U.S. – Statistics & Facts

From U.S. Statista: “In the United States, violent crimes are defined as incidents involving force or the threat of force. The main offences reported under violent crime are murder and non-negligent manslaughter, rape and sexual assault, robbery, and aggravated assault. Violent crime is generally contrasted with property crime, with the latter defined as the taking of money or property without force (or the threat of force) against the victims. Note that in these definitions, robbery counts as violent crime whereas burglary does not. Comparing the number of committed crimes in U.S. by category, property crime far outnumbers violent crime, while aggravated assault accounts for some two-thirds of all violent crime.” Check the facts: Violent crime statistics in the U.S. | Statista

Meanwhile, Iran has claimed that 5,000 American troops are taking part in Israel’s offensive in Gaza against Hamas. The US Special Operations Command has denied Iranian media reports and called them “definitely misinformation

It is pretty evident that the US needs to focus on the mass violence at home first and clean up our own streets that are unsafe for citizens to walk down and our stores that are becoming large targets for crime sprees with restrictions on how law enforcement are allowed to stop them!

It’s time to take a long hard look at what’s really going on!
