Democrats across the nation are calling to defund the police. However, as Kayleigh McEnany points out, Chicago had almost 80 people shot this weekend alone. 13 of the people had passed away and some of them were children.
McEnany reminds people of this.

Chicago's July 4th holiday marked the third straight weekend that a child has fallen victim to gun violence in the city.
From Thursday at 6 p.m. through Sunday night, 87 people were shot in Chicago. Seventeen of the victims have died, including 7-year-old Natalie Wallace who was fatally shot in Austin Saturday night.
At a press conference Monday morning, Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown expressed condolences to the families of the shooting victims and called for changes to stop the violence.
"We must keep violent offenders in jail longer. We must," Superintendent David Brown said. "We should revamp the electronic monitoring program. The electronic monitoring program, it's clearly not working. We will not stop until this violence ends."
