A teen activist for defunding the police and removing police from schools was shot and killed in Chicago.
Caleb Reed was found shot in the head on Friday, and no suspect has been named in the murder yet.
As sad as it is that a life was lost, I can't help but wonder if increased police presence in Democrat run cities like Chicago is the answer, not less. Perhaps if the city had real rules with people to enforce those rules, then there wouldn't be chaos, high crime and numerous murders on the daily.
The Blaze reported:
Caleb Reed, a 17-year-old student activist from Mather High School in Chicago, was found shot in the head on Friday.
The teen’s death comes just weeks after he publicly called for the district to remove police from district schools.
What are the details?
Reed, described by the Chicago Sun-Times as a “student leader with a youth activist group,” was discovered on a sidewalk of the West Rogers Park neighborhood in the city.
He had been shot in the head.
The teen, a leader with student group Voices of Youth in Chicago Education, was an advocate of removing police from Chicago schools.
No suspect have been named in Reed’s death at the time of this reporting.
‘I’m proud to be a black young man’
Just weeks ago, Reed spoke at a board of education meeting in support of removing police from the district. During the meeting, he recalled his own experience with officers in his school.
Reed said during the meeting, “My sophomore year of high school I was arrested for attending a basketball game because I didn’t have my ID. I sat in a police station for six hours. I knew it wasn’t right at all, but inside I was angry, confused."
That's fine to be confused and angry, and I'm not saying that he was treated the way he should have been. I don't know the full extent of the situation and I do not know the protocols for situations like that.
What I do know is that defunding the police is absolutely not the answer.
I'd also like to know where Black Lives Matter is during all of this? He's one of them, and even advocated to defund the police like they preach. So why are they not speaking out about his death? Just goes to show you that they do not actually care about black lives.
