Crime is spiraling out of control in major cities around the country.
And Democrat politicians have done very little to address the problem.
Now one shocking crime caught on video will make your blood run cold.
Democrat-run cities are in a state of decay thanks to pro-crime policies and reckless politicians.
Philadelphia has been hit particularly hard.
Due in large part to George Soros-backed District Attorney Larry Krasner, Philadelphia has seen its deadliest years in a long time.
And in a stomach-turning incident caught on surveillance footage, a group of teenagers beat a 73-year-old man to death with a large traffic cone.
Fox 29 in Philadelphia reported that “two teen girls turned themselves in for the attack on an older man who later died from being beaten with a traffic cone by a group of teens. One of those teens is now facing a murder charge, while the other has been released. Police say a group of teen offenders was wanted in connection with the death of James ‘Simmie’ Lambert Jr., 73, in June. According to authorities, Lambert was attacked by the group on the 2100 block of Cecil B. Moore Avenue on June 24 at 2:38 a.m. The Philadelphia Police Department released surveillance video of the attack and announced the city’s $20,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case.”
Everything about the story is disturbing.
The murder, the age of the kids, and the fact they were out and about at 2:30 a.m.
The horrific incident encapsulates the social chaos that is growing in the United States.
Fox 29 added that “officials say Lambert was knocked to the ground and he was transported to the hospital where he later died from head injuries. Two brothers, ages 10 and 14, turned themselves into authorities on Monday. The older of the two, identified as Richard Jones, faces a murder charge as an adult, according to officials. His 10-year-old brother was released and is not being charged with the crime.”
No motive for the crime has been given, but Rania Major, an attorney for one of the accused, said, “Events that lead up to this, that don’t make it right, don’t negate what happened, but put some things into perspective.”
It’s hard to imagine what could justify a pack of teenagers beating an old man to death.
Society is bursting apart at the seams, and pro-crime policies are a big reason why.
