The leftist mainstream media has become more of a circus than anything else as it continues to report based on its agenda rather than what’s best for the country.
Time and time again, we hear about white police officers killing black men, about instances of so-called “hate crimes” against minorities, and if there’s a white mass shooter, fugettaboutit. However, one thing we rarely hear about from the media, which claims that “black lives matter” and that so-called “gun violence” is destroying our nation, is when minorities turn on their own and kill one another.
The reason why is obvious, but that doesn’t make their refusal to cover such stories any less stunning.
Take Chicago, for instance. This past weekend alone, four people were murdered in cold-blood and another 12 were injured, yet you won’t hear a peep about it from the mainstream press.
FOX32 has more:
Four men were killed and at least 12 other people have been wounded in shootings across Chicago since Friday evening.
Most recently, a man was found shot to death about 5:35 a.m. Sunday in an alley in the Gage Park neighborhood on the Southwest Side, according to Chicago Police. Officers responding to a call of a person down in the alley in the 5300 block of South Washtenaw found the man laying on the ground, police said. The man, thought to be between 25 and 30 years old, had been shot in the head. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The Cook County medical examiner’s office didn’t immediately confirm the fatality.
About an hour and a half earlier, one man was killed and another was critically wounded in a Far South Side Fernwood neighborhood shooting. The men were shot about 4:05 a.m. in the 10600 block of South Perry, police said. One of the men, thought to be in his 50s, was struck in the adbomen and buttocks. He was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was pronounced dead. The medical examiner’s office didn’t immediately confirm the fatality. The other man, 62, was shot in the right leg and abdomen. He was taken to Christ Medical Center in critical condition.
On Saturday morning, a man was found shot to death in another Fernwood neighborhood attack on the Far South Side. A neighbor found the man, thought to be between 40 and 45 years old, lying in the snow about 8:30 a.m. in the 10200 block of South State, police said. Officers conducting a well-being check discovered that he’d been shot in the head. The man was pronounced dead at the scene. The medical examiner’s office had not released his identity Sunday morning.
Yikes. Chicago has become a total war zone.
In fact, so far this year, there’s been 642 homicides in Chicago, with 593 people shot and killed and another 2,831 shot and wounded, making for a total of 3,424 shootings this year alone.
By any standards, what’s happening in the city is a tragedy and should deserve national attention, especially if black lives really matter.
