This is horrible. Why don’t these black lives matter to Mayor Lori Lightfoot, the Democrats and BLM? Because they are full of BS that’s why! They would much rather attack President Trump, at the behest of the racist Democrat Party. The POTUS must intervene. The pro-criminal mayor of Chicago is unwilling and incapable of policing her city. She has also refused to deploy the National Guard to protect her citizens, since that would require her to work with President Trump. Horrible!

Chicago and New York City crime numbers are way up. 67 people shot in Chicago, 13 killed. Shootings up significantly in NYC where people are demanding that @NYGovCuomo & @NYCMayor act now. Federal Government ready, willing and able to help, if asked!

.@RudyGiuliani: BLM “is a Marxist organization”… they have “been planning to destroy the police for 3 years and they finally got stupid Democrat Mayors to agree with them.”

Chicago violence erupts during holiday weekend, at least 67 shot and 13 killed
By Fox News, July 5, 2020
Nine of the victims were minors, with only the two fatalities so far, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
The girl, identified by her family as Natalie Wallace, was outside her grandmother’s home at a Fourth of July party in the city’s Austin neighborhood around 7 p.m. when a vehicle pulled up and three men got out and started shooting indiscriminately.
Wallace was shot in her head and pronounced dead after she was rushed to a hospital, police said, according to Chicago’s FOX 32.
A 32-year-old man shot during the same attack was in fair condition, FOX 32 reported.
“Tonight, a 7-year-old girl in Austin joined a list of teenagers and children whose hopes and dreams were ended by the barrel of a gun,” Mayor Lori Lightfoot wrote on Twitter. “We cannot grow numb to this. We are making progress in slowing shootings, but we have to do better, every single one of us.”
