Violence in Democrat-controlled cities continues to skyrocket, and another law enforcement officer was gunned down after coming back to work from maternity leave.
Law Enforcement Targeted
29-year-old Ella French was murdered during a recent traffic stop in the murder-ridden city of Chicago. A second police officer was also shot and is in critical condition.
French and her partner were in the process of doing a traffic stop on the night of August 7th. While stopping a vehicle, the murder suspect began firing at the officers who then fired back. In the altercation, both cops and one suspect were shot.
The law enforcement officers were taken to the hospital where French was pronounced dead. It is unknown whether the other officer will make it at this point.
Officers Mourn Their Own
The news of the tragedy was revealed on Facebook by the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police which stated, “Late last night 2 of our own were shot. We lost a sister in blue. Officer Ella French was murdered while conducting a traffic stop with her partners. Our hearts go out to her family, friends and co-workers. The 2nd officer is still fighting for his life. Please keep him in your prayers and thoughts.”

The young mother joined the police force in 2018 and leaves behind a 2-month-old baby.
Ella French was just 29 years old.
She has a 2-month-old daughter.
Ella sacrificed her life in the line of duty and her daughter will grow up knowing her mother was a hero.
They will meet again, but until then, we recognize this beautiful life: Police Officer Ella G. French. https://t.co/WZmqw6eDC0

Democrat Cities Breeding Violence
There has been a staggering 500% increase in law enforcement shootings since 2019. Just in 2021 alone, 38 cops have been shot at.
“Despite the shock, grief, pain, and sorrow we feel this morning, our brothers and sisters in blue put this uniform on each and every day,” Department Superintendent David Brown said at a press conference. “They go to work risking everything to serve the people of Chicago. They come to work willing to run toward danger. Toward gunfire. And they’re willing to sacrifice their lives to save the lives of perfect strangers.”
Democrat-run cities have been a hotspot for gun violence and this trend continues to grow. Despite this, Joe Biden and his Democrat cohorts are silent on the growing issue.
