May­ors, stop the mur­ders

Antelope Valley Press - - OPINION - By Scott Stan­tis

Iam a mod­er­ately pa­tient per­son, so I sit here pa­tiently wait­ing — wait­ing for what you say.

I am wait­ing for the tele­vised fu­ner­als of the six mi­nors in Chicago that in­cludes a 1 year old and a 3-year-old.

Two in­di­vid­u­als were re­cently killed by po­lice and they had grand fu­ner­als tele­vised on all the ma­jor net­works and ca­ble out­lets. One even had three fu­ner­als, each grander than the pre­vi­ous one. But these dear chil­dren are mur­dered, the me­dia men­tions once and then if men­tioned again it is by their age.

So, I wait pa­tiently while the scene is re­peated ev­ery week­end while the may­ors of Chicago and NYC, to name a few, blame COVID-19 and polic­ing tac­tics for the vi­o­lence. Heaven help us if the may­ors of mayor cities do not put a stop to these sense­less mur­ders.
