If you watch the news lately, it is hard to ignore the wave of shootings, murders, thefts and crime in Chicago. I recently signed up for tweets from @Chicagobreaking and it is staggering how many crimes are reported per minute. Last week, in one day alone, there were five tweets in a row about a shooting in Chicago.
Well, today finally a mugger got what he deserves. When he tried to rob the wrong guy he received a beating from a martial expert, along with a self-inflicted gun shot to the leg. Convicted criminal Anthony Miranda allegedly approached a man in his car asked for a lighter, he then pulled out a gun and demanded his money. After receiving some cash he still asked the man to step out of the car…big mistake, Miranda was then attacked by an Ultimate Fighting Champion and has black eyes to prove it. During a struggle the mugger’s day got even worse, as he accidentally shot himself in the leg!
The martial arts expert was able to pin the robber down until police arrived, so he is officially “the hero of the day!” It is always good to hear when justice is served and criminals get what they deserve. If only we all had the ability to fight back…when will the violence end?
It is sad and frustrating that criminals have taken over our great city, let’s hope more come together to fight crime and take our city back.
