A Chicago toddler is dead after being severely beaten by a person who battered the 23-month-old kid’s face, and a suspect has been brought into custody for the heinous crime.
Michael Robinson, 23, has been charged with first-degree murder following the death of 23-month-old Antwun Gayden. Following his injuries, Gayden was transferred to the Comer Children’s Hospital where he was pronounced dead shortly after arriving.
“It’s bad enough that there’s kids getting shot, now we got kids being beat,” neighbor Lance Lee said to WGN 9. “I don’t know what’s going on.”
The Cook County medical examiner’s office determined that Gayden died as a result of the abuse that allegedly occurred at the hands of Robinson. He is expected to be arraigned in court sometime today.
Big League Politics has reported on how crime is spiking in Chicago amidst the backdrop of widespread rioting and a call for police to be defunded and removed:
Over 100 people were shot in Chicago during Father’s Day weekend and at least 14 of those shot ended up dying.
So far in 2020, this was the most violent weekend in Chicago.
According to a report from the Chicago Sun-Times, 104 people were shot between June 19 to June 22, with several shootings take place early in the morning of June 22.
Of these random shootings that took place in Chicago, a number of them claimed the lives of children.
“Bullets don’t just tear apart the things they strike,” Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown said during a press conference June 21 addressing the surge in gun violence. “Bullets also tear apart families. Bullets destroy neighborhoods and they ruin any sense of safety in a community.”
“Good men throughout this city should be celebrating with their families on a beautiful day, but instead, a number of Chicagoans will be spending Father’s Day grieving the loss of their children,” he continued, according to a report from the Chicago Tribune.
“These kids are not criminals,” Chicago Police Chief of Detectives Brendan Deenihan noted, making reference to some of the children who fell prey to gunfire, according to ABC 7. “They are not gang members. They have nothing to do with the ongoing disputes out there and they just get gunned down for no reason at all.”
“A line was crossed,” declared the Reverend Ira Acree of Greater St. John Bible Church.“This is a horrific Father’s Day. This 3-year-old baby lost his life. … I could not pastor this community and not say something.”
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot also chimed in about the violence. She went on Twitter and said: “Our city’s collective heart breaks to hear the unfathomable news of a 3-year-old boy who was shot and killed tonight on Chicago’s West Side. There are simply no words to describe such a heinous, unconscionable act of cowardice to shoot at a toddler.”
Crime is spiking in Chicago and other big cities run by Democrats throughout the country, as Americans get a sneak preview into what their country will look like following the demographic collapse.
Portland: Archbishop Leads Prayer and Conducts Exorcism to Rid the City of Satanic Influence
The devil has been busy in Portland over the past few months.
Archbishop of Portland Alexander Sample led a gathering in prayer, a Rosary, and conducted an exorcism over the city last Saturday.
The Catholic archbishop told KOIN that the months of continuous rioting and violence spurred the idea of the exorcism.
Sample further said: “I wasn’t trying to suggest that I think the city of Portland is possessed. It’s not that at all. It’s just a prayer of blessing prayed by the clergy, especially a bishop over a community just asking that all the influences of the Evil One be driven away.”
At one point there were over 100 straight nights of rioting in the city of Portland. Aaron Danielson, a conservative and supporter of Patriot Prayer, was murdered in cold blood on August 29 near a pro-Trump rally. Numerous others, including police officers, were injured amidst the 100+ days of carnage.
Attendees of the archbishop’s prayers and exorcism spoke to Catholic News Service, with one saying that the “anti-religion undertones” of the protests and riots frightened her, and another that “it’s important for people of faith to be seen in public promoting belief and peace.”
As a Catholic myself, I understand the power of prayer and exorcism. They represent two of the most powerful weapons against the devil and his minions. I’m glad to see the archbishop do this for his city.
