Independence Day Holiday Weekend

No, this thread is not about Covid-19 or its spread -

 

It is about little lives - LITTLE LIVES THAT MATTER !

Atlanta - There were 11 shootings in Atlanta during the July 4th weekend. Out of the 31 victims, 5 of them died.  All of these were in relatively proximity geographically.

An 8-year old little girl was one of the victims - killed just feet from where Rashard Brooks died.

Her name was Secoriea Turner

Large cities are usually  governed by Democrats. The reason voters keep picking Democrats is that they have seen what Republicans do when they govern and the term "not pretty" is an understatement.  When your party is so bad the citizens will put up with shootings in the street to avoid being governed by you, it should be a hint.

Or that Democrats appeal to minorities by promising them an utopia?
