Crime in our country is out of control, as left-wing prosecutors enable violent criminals, and zero-bail laws incentivize and empower criminals. And while the bare statistics can be numbing, occasionally the true horror of our situation becomes An Illinois police sergeant and her partner were shot in a tragic incident at a hotel last week, after pleading for their lives with a gunman.
An Illinois police sergeant was pleading for her life moments before she was fatally shot with her own service weapon by a gunman in a hotel last week, documents provided to Fox News show.
“At the time Sullivan fired the fatal shots into Sgt. Rittmanic, Sgt. Rittmanic was pleading with them to just leave, ‘you don’t have to do this, please just go, please don’t please don’t.’ She was desperately pleading for her life,” Kankakee County State’s Attorney Jim Rowe said in court Monday.
Bradley Police Sgt. Marlene Rittmanic and Officer Tyler Bailey were shot Dec. 29 while responding to a Comfort Inn Hotel along a highway in Kankakee County regarding barking dogs that were left in a vehicle. They found the room where the vehicle’s possible owner was staying and were shot while talking to the people in that room, the sheriff’s office said.
Illinois happens to be the first state in the US to eliminate cash bail completely.
Every victim of crime is a human being, yet their suffering doesn’t count to liberals like George Soros and The Squad. When will America wake up and show the criminals that crime doesn’t pay, and retribution is swift?
