Seven people were just brutally murdered over the last few hours in one U.S. neighborhood that has the entire community on edge. What was supposed to be a quick meal at a fast-food restaurant, turned into a bloodbath that spilled out into the street, claiming the lives of two women, one who was pregnant, and five men before the reign of terror came to an end.
The South Shore neighborhood will never be the same after what has evolved over the last 12 hours. A group of four men were gunned down in a local restaurant before a pregnant woman was found a couple blocks away with a gunshot wound to the head. Just a couple hours later, investigators discovered that a 27-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman had also been fatally shot, right around the corner from the other victims, USA Today reported.
These seven back-to-back deaths are the latest convulsion of violence that pulses through Chicago’s suburbs, adding to a total of nearly 900 murders in just the past 15 months. The common connection between most of these murders isn’t the gun — it’s the rampant gang issue in the area that has gone unchecked and ignored by liberals who find it easier to blame a weapon, rather than who pulled the trigger.
What’s happening now is that the people in these inner-cities are sick of seeing their loved ones murdered at an uncontrollable rate, while promises from the left to stand up for them have failed. President Trump has been the only one to actually take a stand for these victims and something has to be done. He’s already taken action in that direction by sending in a small army of ATF agents, which will likely be the start to more enforcement.
The gangs run these parts of town and families are screaming for help to address the real issue, which isn’t solved by speeches for gun control in an already anti-gun city. It’s only devolved to this point because the left discussed the issues in this city for their own agenda and now these suffering citizens feel used by them.
