Hell, half the effort for that matter….
I mean, they could put a lot of gang members behind bars and probably actually DO something about the rising crime.
But despite it all, the fact is that a family now has to deal with the senseless death of a child. All the charges and convictions won’t fix that. It could have been avoided if the criminals had been in jail.
Of course the shooter and his wheelman each had lots of other crimes of violence…like carjacking and such. But they were out on the street because Chicago is soft on crime in order to be fair and equitable to minorities and all that other bullshit. And because they were out on the street a little girl is dead. And despite all the cries of racism and all that, we must face one fact: most (not all) of these crimes are committed by people with lots of melanin in their skin. Fact. Deal with it.
It’s almost as if the folks in charge want anarchy and lawlessness….they couldn’t do much more to make it that way unless they pulled the police entirely.
