Did you hear about the mass shooting? The one in El Paso, where it was “obviously due to President Trump’s rhetoric?” No. Not that one. Oh! The one in Daytona? We don’t know the motives, but the shooter is a registered Democrat, so it must be due to “guns bad!”
No. Not that one either. I’m talking about Chicago, where inside 24-hours of the two above mentioned shootings, there was another mass shooting in a Chicago park early this morning. And in all their haste to bash President Trump, the Democrats are ignoring this one.
Seven people were wounded in a shooting Sunday as they gathered in Douglas Park on the West Side.
At about 1:20 a.m. Sunday, a group was standing in the park in the 2900 block of West Roosevelt Road when someone opened fire from a black Camaro, Chicago police said.
This is a regular occurrence in Democrat dominated Chicago. If you look at the numbers, Chicago, Detroit and Baltimore, among many Democrat run cities experience the numerical equivalent of several hundred mass shootings each year.
In 2018, Chicago experienced 2948 shootings (561 murders). If you take the common definition of a mass shooting, 4 or more people injured or killed by gunshot, that’s the equivalent of 624 mass shootings. That’s the equivalent of almost 2 mass shootings each day. In some cases, like this morning, is was an actual mass shooting with 7 casualties.
Where’s the Democrat outcry? Baltimore, MD the home district to Elijah Cummings, has the highest per capita murder rate in the nation with 309 murders recorded in 2018.
Where is the Democrat outrage? Could it be that there is no way to connect them to President Trump and his uncanny ability to point out corruption in Democrat corruption? Could it be that these inner city mass shootings are all in Democrat controlled areas?
These shootings aren’t done by some leftist psychopath as in El Paso. They are direct result of leftist polices that turn American cities into third world dystopian nightmares. Baltimore is an especially egregious example. the entire political machine is Democrat controlled. That machine has made it a point to demean, degrade and operationally disarm police officers.
Baltimore cops are just going through the motions. They will answer calls, but the “self initiated activity” that individual officers were once encouraged for doing, is gone. The crime rate reflects this. That’s why the mainstream press is silent on this weekend’s mass shooting in Chicago…and all the other shootings killing their constituents in Democrat cities.
