A “local news” issue
“The school is a ticking time bomb.”
“President Trump’s entire Administration is working tirelessly to bring these violent animals to justice.”
“We’re all God’s children.”
“however repugnant their actions…”
“The notorious MS-13 gang recently told its membership to randomly murder a Long Island cop…”
We wouldn’t want to offend any of the gang members now, would we?
Too little, too late
Catch and release.
“He wasn’t a danger to the community”
A somber, annual ritual in Charm City
We’re gonna need a bigger truck
Wasn’t that supposed to be the idea?
Some mature faster than others

“I think under state law they could easily be declared a gang.”
“This group is trying actively to intimidate, suppress free speech and violently attack people with whom they disagree.”
The old ways which worked clearly didn’t work?
Probably not but it’s a nice idea
Not the sort of records you should be striving to break
“…they were let down by everyone who should have been helping to protect them.”

An ill wind blows no good in the Windy City
It’s come to this
“Since the start of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program in 2012, approximately 1,500 recipients have had their deferred action terminated…”
“…this is all fun for them.”
It’s probably a good start, but sheer numbers don’t relieve the underlying problem
This is the new version of the big, RICO mob trials of the seventies
“All day long they ride around trying to find somebody to shoot.”
A new high and a devastating new low at the same time. When will the gang violence problem be addressed?
Based on the number of deaths this puts most natural disasters to shame
Not like the old days
This is the cost of illegal gun violence
Bloody Sunday… and Monday
