All I heard the past two days was how many have died in Chicago from “gun violence”. Oh but of course we must blame the guns. A better term would be “gang violence”. Bob Owens has some perspectiveBob Owens has some perspective
A cousin of NBA basketball star Dwyane Wade was shot and killed by a pair of serial offenders in Chicago on Friday because the two thugs didn’t like it when a taxi driver dared to make eye contact with them.
A pair of brothers released from jail on parole have been charged with fatally shooting Nykea Aldridge, cousin of NBA star Dwyane Wade, in Chicago.
Darwin Sorells, 26, and 22-year-old brother Derren, who are both documented gang members, were charged with first-degree murder Sunday over the death of Aldridge, 32, a mother-of-four.
Both are repeat gun offenders, Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson confirmed, and both were out on parole at the time of the killing.
Speaking about Darwin, Johnson said he is a six-time weapon offender who was jailed in 2013 for six years for another gun crime but released on parole in February.
Stop right there! Why was Darwin, why in the Blue Hell was this piece of trash out of prison, waking around? Sic weapons offenses, a gang member AND sentenced to six years less than three years ago? What is wrong with a justice system that releases a thug Like that early? His brother is also a repeat gun offender! Why the Hell was he out to predate on innocents? And why the Hell is no one talking about this? And why the Hell isn’t someone like Owens on CNN, or Fox talking about the reality of these predators?
The gang-banging Sorells brothers are part of a feral subculture within the larger American society that is predatory and nearly primal in how they view the world. In this instance, they decided to try to murder a man for being a stranger that made eye contact, which they took as a sign of challenging their dominance over what they viewed as their territory.
This is the sort of behavior we often associate with wild animals, but it is in fact the norm for much of human history, and is a current problem in many parts of the world even today.
The simple fact of the matter is that there are people who are predators by nature or nurture or a combination of the two, and they don’t think like you and I.
To them, violence is a tool, if not a form of currency.
They do not see other human beings as contributing members of society to be valued, but as either fellow predators to be either challenged or submitted to, or as prey to be exploited. Some of these people commit violent crime as a job. Others simply enjoy it.
This is a reality that your average citizen can’t or won’t admit exists, because it is terrifying. Admitting that this world exists is to admit that this is a serious problem. Even more worrying to a Disneyfied world is the realization that the only way to deal with this kind of threat is the sudden, precise, and overwhelming application of the tool of violence.
That my friends is the truth. There are bad people out there, people who will kill you, over nothing more than some perceived slight. As I have said numerous times to those fools who consider all violence to be somehow “equal”
Violence is neither good nor evil.
Violence is merely a tool.
Good people use the tool of violence all the time to save lives and prevent evil people from harming others. These practitioners of benevolent violence are members of our armed forces, law enforcement officers, and regular people just like you and I.
Go read the rest my friends
