  1. Sadly, the Biden administration, and the democratic party, has used divisive means to further pushed their socialist agenda. They have used race, homophobia, and other means to stir up hatred, not only for our country, but for the police, and the history of our country. They have used intimidation, and accusations, to silence anyone that does not support their narrative. They have created and supported a cancel culture to rid the public of any dissent to their power and authority. They have surrounded themslves with inept, corrupt, uneducated, and unqualified, career politicians, who do not follow the rule of law, and behave like political sovereigns of thier own little kingdoms. While our inner cities are impacted by crime like never before, they choose to defund the police, leaving citizens without protection, while they have private security, and live in gaited communities. Is this America? Is this what some Americans voted for? We have an elected president who seems to be suffering from some cognitive ability, and cannot seem to get through speeches and events without prompting from his wife and staff. Our economy is worse than before this administration took office; prices for food, gas, and everything else has risen sharpely. We have an open southern border, where ilegal aliens from many countries are able to cross without an issue. While our citizens are encouraged to get vaccinated against the Covid virus, these thousands or ilegal immigrants are coming into this country unchecked for the virus. Thos who are tested, are testing positive, and sent to various parts of the country, without the knowledge of local govenments and community. They are staying in hotels on tax payer money, while our homeless are sleeping outside in the streets. This administration has been a joke. Sadly, the joke is on all of us.

  2. Gun violence is not sweeping across the country
    It's gun violence sweeping across the blue states
    Wonder why 😅😂😅

  3. The longer we go without comprehensive, effective investment in the social fabric of disadvantaged communities, the longer the violence will continue. We brought this upon ourselves.

  4. They should not even patrol those areas especially since they have defunded the police under Democratic pressure. Leave them to themselves to do in each other.

  5. 'The media are less a window on reality, than a stage on which officials and journalists perform self-scripted, self-serving fictions.'

  6. Looking at the GMA table, the Lightfoot administration was on cloud nine. The number of patients with gun injuries for 2021 is 680. Way down from the totals of 2017 -2020. So if there are no more gun injuries this year, this would be a banner year.

  7. How's "defund the Police" workin for ya?? The Windy City apparently doesn't think BLM. Sad. Enjoy your city

  8. 1:25 "I'm conviced that if our patients looked a different way, people would look at them differently"

    What is being implied here? The gun victims are of a certain demographic, victimized by shooters of a similar demographic. Yet the whole community of Chicago puts the best people on the line — as hospital staff, as law enforcement — at a substantial fiscal cost to the community.

  9. Claim you've been oppressed by others then go and kill your own people…then blame society.. it's like a cycle

  10. Mainstream media is covid really the biggest threat to human life??????the past 15 months I know two times the amount of ppl who have died from gun violence than covid. Save lives right.

  11. I love Chicago! Gangbangers killing gangbangers. What we need to do is create a coliseum with paying customers. No guns. Real Gladiator shit so they can show off their manlihood. You know UFC shit taken to the next level with swords and all the other stuff we saw in the movies. Las Vegas can run the betting.

  12. I lived 8n Chicago for 28 years. Its a shit hole and over priced. Also has some of the strictest gun laws, keeping all the guns from the people who should be able to have them. Lol but keep all the rooms down for the plandemic. My heart goes out to those we just in the cross fire.

  13. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣☠☠☠ what the fuck. These hoods have had battles for decades. Yes random people get shot but it's mainly targeted hits. The media warping this is honestly comedic.

  14. Where is BLM???? Oh wait they don't care. Neither does anyone else. Keep it up. Kill each other off. Way to raise your kids Chicago!!!!

  15. Sure, lots of gun violence in democrat run cities. Take a long, hard look at the group of people that are primarily responsible for the gun violence. What is being done to stop this? Not a damn thing, because we can't call out certain racial groups even when the evidence is overwhelming. Are we seeing this violence being done by white, Asian, Indian or Hispanics, no we are not and we need to point the finger at the ones responsible and quit listening to their excuses for their terrible behavior.
