The situation in Chicago is very sad. A once great American city is overrun with criminals and gangland shootings at all hours of the day.
Leftist Mayor Lori Lightfoot is pushing through new community counseling programs and criminal coddling laws, but the shootings just get more and more frequent.
For one thing, violent criminals are getting low bail and sympathetic judges. For another thing, they’re just not even being properly punished for their crimes.
Let’s take a look at the latest example…
Judge Lets Murderer Walk
As we all know, guns are far from the only instrument of violence in our broken world. All too often, it is everyday tools, knives, and anything else at hand that are used by murderers.
In this case, a 17-year-old weed dealer just got three years of probation (no jail) for killing a 15-year-old teen with his knife in 2020. Basically, the two of them fought over who was selling weed in what place; the older guy got angry and ran after him.
Then, he stabbed the youngster to death and was arrested. He admitted he was guilty in court, but liberal judge Steven Bernstein felt sympathy. Bernstein said the older dealer was a “bright kid” who obviously didn’t mean to kill someone.
He then gave him 100 hours of helping out in the community and three years of probation where he checks in with a probation officer. Bernstein also sentenced the killer to therapy, which he has to go to now with his mom and dad. Yes, seriously.
A teenage boy is off with no punishment for 2nd degree murder in the city of Chicago. Criminals are watching this and feeling emboldened and cocky; there’s no doubt about that.

Three Years Probation? Seriously?
This sentence is insane. Cook County is being shot and stabbed to death, but a teen drug dealer gets no time in jail for killing someone and admitting he did it and intended to do it (second degree murder).
Over 80% of murder victims in Cook County are black Americans; yet, these liberals keep wanting to make excuses for criminals and let people keep getting killed.
Let’s be clear: Holding criminals responsible for crimes is not racist. Letting them run wild and kill black people is racist and it’s also incredibly stupid.
When we see a miscarriage of justice like this, we are forced to ask what exactly is going on that led to such an upside-down outcome.
Chicago has its highest murder rate since 1995 and if Lightfoot had allowed Trump to send in federal help when he offered it wouldn't be that way!

Chicago Coddles Criminals
The bottom line is Chicago coddles criminals, and it’s costing a lot of people their lives. There is no way on earth that killing someone shouldn’t even result in jail time.
We see the result of horrible Democrat policies and they are a nightmare. We can’t afford this anymore; it’s no wonder people are packing up and getting out of blue cities while they still can.
