Saturday night added homicide victims 36 and 37 to the ever exploding list of murders in Charlotte.
The first homicide, that of Teaun Bates occurred at the infamous Timber Ridge Apartments. Timber Ridge has long been the epicenter of the African American Culture of Violence a lifestyle embracing gunplay and criminality.
The second murder that of Derrick Lamar Chambers, shot dead on Delta Crossing Lane.
Busy night for Hickory Grove Officers.
It would be easy to blame CMPD Chief Kerr Putney for the continued spike in violence, but that would be misguided and the reason is simple:
Police can not patrol enough to prevent or predict homicides.
The root causes of Charlotte's soaring murder rate is simple:
A Demographic that embraces a culture of violence
Overwhelmingly Liberal Judiciary
City and County wide Democratic leadership that is soft on crime and far too busy promoting a social agenda rather than a civic agenda.
Population growth that is predominantly driven by transplants from cesspool cites in the north.
Time for Charlotte leaders to say ENOUGH!
Stop Sherriff Garry McFadden from turning the county jail into his own personal "Kamp Kumbaya"
Put Charlotte Mayor Vi Lyles on notice that her "social agenda" needs to take a back seat to a civic and tough of crime agenda. Free Housing is just a massive bug light for the low life that is infesting our city.
Mecklenburg County DA needs to make man up and prosecute violent offenders, scrape the no bail fail and electronic monitoring system.
Raleigh needs to pass legislation that removes judicial variances and gives a mandatory ten year prison sentence for crimes involving the commission of a crime while in possession of a gun. No parole No probation No mercy!
Time to remove gun toting felons from our streets is now.
