Another weekend, another bloodbath in President Barack Obama’s hometown of Chicago, Illinois, and President Trump is pointing the finger at Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
According to police, 8 people will killed and 25 wounded this past Memorial Day weekend, edging out last years deadly totals of 7 killed and 45 wounded.
The victims, WLS reported, include China Marie Lyons-Upshaw, who was shot in the chest while playing with a gun; Bobbieana Lyons, 20, a young mother shot and killed on her doorstep while celebrating her 2-year-old’s birthday; and a 31-year-old man shot twice in the chest and once in the head after he got into a fight with another man.-Fox News
Chicago Police have every right to legally protest against the mayor and an administration that just won’t let them do their job. The killings are at a record pace and tough police work, which Chicago will not allow, would bring things back to order fast…the killings must stop!
