Democratic-run cities have a serious issue on their hands when it comes to crime. Those who break the law are either getting away with it altogether or being hit with very minimal charges that fail to match the gravity of their offenses.
Chicago, Illinois is one prime example of this. In Chicago, mass riots have taken over the streets. This often leads to property destruction, individuals being put in potentially mortal danger, and more.
However, leaders in the city are still excusing the behavior. In one of the most egregious examples, two young Chicago teens who broke the law and ended up taking a life in the process are only facing misdemeanor charges, per New York Post.
A Grave Miscarriage of Justice
For reasons not yet known, a 14-year-old and 17-year-old decided to steal a Hyundai. However, in the process of moving the stolen vehicle, they ended up crashing into another car.
The result of this crash was an infant dying from the impact; however, the charges these two teenagers are facing don’t reflect the magnitude of their actions. Instead, the justice system in Chicago only charged the pair with criminal trespassing, a misdemeanor.

So far, there is word that the teens could face additional charges after Chicago police wrap up their investigation. Yet, the murder of the infant hasn’t even been taken into account in the initial charges.
More to Come?
When people know they can break the law and not face the appropriate criminal charges, the odds of more offenders increases astronomically.

Right now, Chicago officials are not taking serious measures to disincentivize crime. They’re also not moving to truly hold offenders accoutnable for when they do break the law and take lives in the process.
For these reasons, Americans can expect to hear of more crimes being committed in Chicago.This article appeared in New Vision News and has been published here with permission.
