Where is the rage when innocent children are dying in Chicago?
So where is the rage? What statues can we tear down today to protest the murder of 7-yearold Natalia Wallace by selfish morons on North Latrobe this past weekend?
And the murder of 1-year-old Sincere Gaston a week earlier? And the murder of 3-year-old Mekhi James the week before that? And all the teenagers and preschoolers and young adults living innocent lives before being killed in their own neighborhoods by the selfish gun play of complete idiots?
This insanity has nothing to do with Black lives mattering, racial justice, unemployment or any of the social ills affecting large swaths of our people. It’s a crime spree, simple enough. And it needs the simple application of aggressive police work and citizen cooperation to quell it.
All the liberal hand-wringing in the world won’t solve this brutal crime wave. Hard and fair police work, combined with realistic punishment, can go a long way toward getting these monsters to understand their time has come.
It’s time. We have too many murdered innocents. Dennis Allen, Wilmette
