Out-of-control violence can’t be ignored by the people who work in the cities where the violence has been allowed to spread. Chicago Mail Carriers Threaten To Stop Delivering Mail If City Fails To Control Violence
“The 24-year-old woman, who works as a United States Postal Service mail carrier, was shot at 91st Street and Ellis Avenue just after 11:35 a.m. while on the job,” ABC 7 Chicago reported earlier in September. “Chicago Fire Department officials said she was critically hurt after being shot multiple times.”
The mail carrier was not the shooting’s intended target, Chicago police officials said, but her southside route put her in the middle of a neighborhood wracked by gun violence. She is, ABC 7 added, the second mail carrier wounded by gunfire while walking her route.
Mayor Groot, also known as Lori Lightfoot, will no doubt say it is “unfair.” But some would say that about the way she has Chicago PD protecting her home. (Hat tip to Whatfinger News)
