Easter weekend proved to be particularly brutal for certain parts of the U.S., between two neighboring states. A Cleveland, Ohio man went on the rampage and live streamed the murder of an elderly passerby, who he shot in broad daylight on the sidewalk for no reason. Steve Stephens still remains at large and authorities nationwide are hunting him down, but now news is coming out about another shooting spree in Illinois, where 29 were hit on Resurrection Sunday.
Time is of the essence in the search for the psychotic killer on the loose who claimed on Facebook to have killed 12 people and wasn’t planning on stopping until he heard from his mom. Only one fatality has been confirmed as the 74-year-old pedestrian shot on live stream, but Stephens is still at large, armed, and dangerous. Meanwhile, just over three hundred miles away in Chicago, 29 people were shot in less than 18 hours, and the city is waiting to hear from their mayor, Rahm Emanuel. However, he’s strangely silent after the bloodbath for a disturbing reason.
If Stephens is looking for a place to hide while trying to escape authorities, he could blend right into the Sanctuary City of Chicago and likely go unnoticed since shootings like what he just committed happen every second. On Saturday night into Sunday morning, 23 people were shot, and by the end of Easter, the victim toll had risen another 11 people, Chicago Tribune reports.
“In total, 34 people were shot over the Easter holiday, and 23 people were shot over a seven-hour period between Saturday night and Sunday morning,” according to Truth Feed.
Rather than addressing this prolific crime issue that plagues his city, anti-Trump Emanuel insists on maintaining the Sanctuary status, only adding to the problem. His own citizens are dying at alarming rates from thugs shooting people and black victims could sure use his help. However, the mayor is more concerned with bringing in illegals, providing them with special ID’s, and fulfilling all their welfare needs instead of starting with those who are already there.
With illegals, comes more crime, and the victim toll will only rise as we continue to see. Residents should see this as a warning that they aren’t safe there since there’s no end in sight to this continuing crime spree. “The lone death over the weekend happened early Sunday morning. One man shot at two other men, one of whom succumbed to wounds on the head and neck later at Mount Sinai Hospital, according to authorities,” Daily Caller reports. “A 14 year-old boy was shot after two males came up to him midnight Sunday. They fired at him and a bullet hit the boy in the arm. He was taken to a hospital and is said to be in stable condition.”
It seems that Emanuel is hellbent on going against President Donald Trump that the citizens are the one who pay the price. He has an opportunity to better the communities but ignores them instead as the problem escalates. He’s reigning over a war zone and bringing in illegals which only makes it worse. Crime is synonymous with Chicago and is now the hallmark of his “leadership.” It’s tragic that more people will die because of him neglecting the overwhelming issue.
