Like many of you, I woke this morning to a Monday morning after the Independence Day celebrations, to be stunned by the amount of carnage on our city streets. It seems that these protests have gone sideways, resulting in the deaths of innocent life, in many cases of children.
In Chicago, with 78 shot, including 14 killed, and some of those were children, we see Mayor Lightfoor is blaming guns, not the culture of murder that pervades that city.
In Atlanta, where an 8-year-old girls was shot while riding in her mother's car, the mayor says that we can't blame the police for this.
Policing the cities is the job of the mayors and governors. President Trump says that he is willing to help, and has identified assets that can be used, if asked, to restore calm.
These Democratic mayors need to step up and get a plan to end the violence in their cities.
