Poor leadership has turned Chicago in to the land of lawlessness.
It seems that more people are killed in a mere weekend in Chicago than anywhere else in the country.
A recent shooting in the city was caught on video at a liquor store in West Garfield Park.
In the video, a man in a white shirt walks up from behind and sucker punches another man in the back of the head.
The victim, who was knocked to the ground, then stumbles to his feet and begins to exit the store.
However, as he’s halfway out the door, he pulls out a gun and shoots the attacker multiple times in the chest before leaving the scene.
The man who was shot died shortly after.
The incident has ignited a debate online over whether or not the shooting was actually justified or not.

BPR reported on the incident:
The soon-to-be deceased attacker walked up to a man at a counter in the West Garfield Park liquor store on Wednesday, August 31st, in the afternoon at 4:15 and sucker-punched him from behind. The victim fell to the ground.
As the victim was leaving the store, the attacker was stopped by two men who stepped in front of him. After he halted, they shuffled off just as the victim appeared in the doorway and pulled a gun.
He proceeded to shoot his attacker in the chest multiple times. The man fell down and then attempted to get back up as everyone around him went running for cover. The video is very grainy but you can see blood all over the man.
The shooting has ignited a fiery debate online.
Some think the shooting was absolutely justified, while others believe that the act of retaliation came far too long afterwards.
The opinions aren’t necessarily divided by how people feel about the Second Amendment either:
Bet he dont do that again

You expect him to hope the attacker doesn’t kill attack him again when he’s in a concussive state? You are not pro self defense. You’re a Bolshevik.

No one should convict. The assault was vicious. The attacker is evil.

IDK where I stand on this, a sucker punch could kill someone. But it seemed like it was already over after the punch. I still would've pulled my gun out and aimed it at him calling the cops and holding him there. But this is Chicago, and I go to jail for defending myself. https://t.co/SeNGHiju9W

To be very clear, the man who was assaulted could have continued out the door, and therefore shooting the man who punched him was not self defense.
This scenario, however, was created by a government that coddles, rather than punishes criminals!https://t.co/SDnCc8xMN0

CBS News provided more details:
The shooting happened Wednesday afternoon at 4:15.
The man who was shot was taken to Mount Sinai Medical Center and pronounced dead. Not much is known about that man except that he was 19 years old, according to the medical examiner.
Police are still looking for the shooter.
Regardless on how you look at it, years of failed democrat policies focused on eliminating law & order have contributed to these kind of incidents:

Why aren’t more Republicans running on law & order?
