“But no one can enter a strong man's house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man.” Mark 3:27 (ESV)
Over the Christmas weekend in Chicago police investigated 27 shooting incidents, 12 of which were fatal.
There have been 753 homicides and 3,495 shooting incidents in the city from January 1st to December 25th.
Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said criminals feel empowered and emboldened by recent police criticism.
He explained “when criminals feel the public will speak out for them and not the police officers, that's giving them the power to go out and do what they did” over the Christmas weekend.
Anti-police sentiment jeopardizes the safety of the most vulnerable communities.
