MAN'S INHUMANITY TO MAN: There has been several things on the local news lately that just makes you shake your head, and even choke up a bit and maybe even shed a tear or two. And you just have to wonder, WHY? What is going on.
Recently a young mother was walking home in Chicago after walking her children to school. She was shot in the head. What did she do to deserve that? Nothing. She was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, and got caught in a cross fire of two men having a gun battle. Chicago registered 90 gun deaths during the month of August. The first time it has reached 90 in a month for several years.
I dare say here that none of the people involved in these gun deaths, or the instigators of such, were legal and registered gun owners. Most of them are not.
On August 12, 2 felon's running from a murder charge in Ohio, were pulled over for a traffic violation in the small town of Hatch, New Mexico. They shot and killed the police officer, high jacked another car and ran from the police. They were later apprehended after a police chase and other things that took place. They are now in jail.
A couple of weeks ago, the police in Albuquerque answered a call of domestic violence. Arriving at the apartment they apprehended a woman, her boy friend and a female cousin of the boy friend. The female cousin jumped from the apartment balcony to escape police, but broke her leg in the jump so was apprehended. Their crime. They had tortured, raped, then killed and dismembered the woman's 10 year old daughter. They were attempting to burn the body in the bath tub when police arrived. The girl had just turned 10 years old the day before. The boy friend and his cousin both had long rap sheets and the cousin had just been released from jail a few days before this incident. The girl was a pretty girl and it just hurts to even see the news reports.
A day or so after the above incident, also in Albuquerque, a woman and her 11 year old daughter from Vietnam had recently arrived in Albuquerque to join the woman's new husband. The husband shot them to death then shot himself. No one seems to know why he did this, but it cut short a life of someone who thought they were on their way to a better life her in the U.S.
Just two days ago, in the small town of Alamogordo, New Mexico, a police officer contacted a felon who had 4 active warrants for his arrest. the felon shot and killed the police officer, before being shot and killed by other officers who arrived on the scene. The felon was just that, a felon who was not supposed to have a gun. But he did. Against the law, but then I'm sure he didn't care.
This is just a small smattering of things that have happened in the past month. I am sure it is also just a small smattering of the thing that have happened nation or even world wide.
A lot of this kind of thing is taking place, and the general populace is getting fed up with it. Hillary nor Trump, with the help of congress, will not put an end to this. It will be the "uprising" of the general public that will finally stand up and say enough is enough, and put an end to the madness that has taken over the nation and the world.
And that is the View From the Ditch Bank
