While the media runs the George Floyd II play, truly horrifying stories like these will get a fraction of the attention and not even the tiniest fraction of the outrage even though, unlike the occasional act of police brutality, they are an ongoing crisis.
A man was killed and a two-year-old was shot in the face when gunshots rang out in Baltimore on Saturday, officials said.
A woman driving her car down the street at the time with two children, ages 6 and 2, was also struck and crashed into a pole. She was taken to a hospital in critical condition, police said.
The two-year-old suffered a gunshot wound to the face, Baltimore Councilman Eric Costello confirmed.
Over in D.C., things are also going well.
A 4-year-old girl walked into a Washington, DC, hospital with a gunshot wound Saturday, police say.
The girl was breathing and conscious at the time of her arrival at the medical facility, but police have not released any further updates on the child’s condition.
What these incidents testify to is the sheer horror of the crime wave unleashed by Democrats and those Republicans who supported the nightmarish evil that they euphemistically called, “criminal justice reform”.
Cities desperate to get the violence under control, yet unable to apply legislative fixes, send cops out to fight it. And with police fleeing major urban police forces, they turn to anyone who will serve. Especially if they’re members of minority groups. And that’s how you end up with Memphis. It’s also how you end up with 2-year-olds shot in the face and 4-year-olds walking into ERs with gunshot wounds.
The media doesn’t care. The Left doesn’t care. They unleashed these killing fields and they won’t stop until public safety is a distant memory. And nothing will change until people are at least as outraged about this daily toll as they are about whichever police brutality narrative the media has decided to hysterically push this week.
