Plea to stop the violence issued by South Bend Police Chief Scott Ruszkowski

South Bend Police Chief Scott Ruskowski has written an impassioned plea for those who are in-the-know about the recent shooting of some young South Bend residents.

As of early Friday, Oct. 15, five people were shot within the past week, including a 15-year-old boy, a 14-year-old girl, a 16 year-old girl and a 19-year-old woman.

In a post on Facebook, Ruszkowski wrote that nobody is saying anything, but people know.

Ruskowski is frustrated that, despite the vigils, meetings and increased police patrols, the violence continues and cooperation from the public in bringing the people responsible to justice is lacking.

He says there is seldom a violent crime that doesn’t have more than one person who knows what happened and why. And he wants people who something to say something.

Save you breath chief. The criminals are narcissists. They want what they want when they want it no mater the means used. They are criminals and will not obey any law that stands in their way. Force is all they understand. They are not willing to listen to weak pleas or reason. They hold you and the SBPD in CONTEMPT! They care not a single rats behind if they kill a little kid or an adult. They SIMPLY DO NOT CARE.

You should urge every law-abiding citizen to buy and carry a gun for self protection as is their inalienable right. This would make the cost of crime far higher than it is now.

Save you breath.

Indeed, when the City of South Bend and the St Joseph County Prosecutor attack gun owners after a defensive gun use – even one where the gun was never fired – they simply give the criminals carte blanche to get bolder and more violent. Combine that with CRT policing, and you get an entire class of criminals who fears neither their victims nor the law.

Chief Scott Ruskowski doesn’t own this mess, but the leftist Democrats who have been running the city for decades certainly do!

If the residents of South Bend truly wanted to end the violence, they would stop electing Democrats.
