When it comes to soliciting money for democrat-controlled unionized schools, “it’s always for the children.” Dishonestly and disingenuously leaving out the fact that a majority of the money is really going to underfunded union pension funds and other adult-related activities.
And when it comes to guns in Chicago, with their strict gun control laws, the progressives would rather you die than protect yourself from criminals and crazies. As if disarming law-abiding citizens did not simply create a larger pool of victims and empower the criminals and gang members.
So why do the progressives sit idly by and not mobilize the entire police force to stop gang-related domestic terrorism?
Caught In Gang Attack, Boy, 9, Shot In The Chest
A 9-year-old boy was critically wounded Wednesday evening, when he was shot in the chest while riding in a car with his mother. It happened around 5:30 p.m. in the 6700 block of South Evans Avenue in the Park Manor neighborhood. Police sources said the boy’s mother was driving down the street with her boyfriend, a known gang member, when a passerby shot at them. Sources say the boyfriend, who has been arrested 38 times, was sitting in the front seat of the car and was the intended target of a gang-related shooting.
There were six children in the car at the time, and relatives say they know who’s responsible for the shooting. One of the kids saw the gunman. A bullet went through the back door of the car, striking the boy in the back, and exiting his chest.
Tykeece Hilliard, a third-grader at Fiske Elementary, was being treated at the University of Chicago’s Comer Children’s Hospital on Thursday, but his mother said he’s expected to make a full recovery. Tynisha Hilliard said her son was sitting in the back seat at the time of the shooting, and screamed out, “Mommy, I’m shot!”
“You almost took my child’s life. My child is laying up in critical condition,” she said. “It’s senseless. Another baby is shot, or getting hurt, and what’s the purpose? I just want whoever shot my baby to come forward so justice can be served.”
A police source said Hilliard’s boyfriend fled the car immediately after the shooting, and Hilliard drove on to Comer Children’s Hospital. Police put up crime tape to secure the car at the hospital.
Police have not said if they’ve been able to talk to the boyfriend. No suspects were in custody as of Thursday afternoon. Source: Caught In Gang Attack, Boy, 9, Shot In The Chest « CBS Chicago
Bottom line …
It does not appear that anyone is really enraged about a little boy being shot – after all, it is a normal occurance in “that” community. I call bullshit. Time to go after the terrorists who are decimating the inner cities, if not with weapons than with drugs. I would expect that if we looked hard enough, their might be some “solid-appearing” citizens profiting from the drugs flowing freely in the ‘hood.
The politicians and police are afraid of the gangs. One, because they are not afraid to kill politicians and police. And two, because crime funds much of their unionized infrastructure – from police, to the judiciary, to the jailers. Besides, they would hate to put additional minority men and women in jail even when the evidence demonstrates that they commit a majority of the crime, up to 96% of all gun-related deaths, and pose a serious threat to the people they claim to be protecting and serving.
God help the democrats if they were seen as racist – actually holding individuals accountable for their actions rather than the instruments they choose to commit mayhem.
Personally, I think the mother, Tynisha Hilliard, should be charged with felony child endangerment for exposing six children to the possibility of gun-related violence by knowingly having a known gang member in her car. And, I think the democrats in Chicago should be replaced by a law-and-order administration that does not fund itself, directly or indirectly with the proceeds of criminal activity.
