What key reason  is missing in the Chicago Tribune – Yahoo article, titled: 2020′s difficulties fade, but Chicago homicides and shootings stay stubbornly elevated?

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate and ancient wisdom proverbs, an idiom, and my personal opinion of what is the missing key reason in the article.

King Solomon

A wise king winnows out the wicked; he drives the threshing wheel over them. (Proverb 20:26

Idiom – lay (one’s) cards on the table

To reveal something that one has kept hidden, such as one’s motives, intentions, opinion, etc.; to be very candid. A reference to a player in a card game revealing the cards that they were holding. (The Free Dictionary)

What’s My Point?

I read with bated breath the various reasons a writer listed for the high rate of shootings in Chicago and other high crime urban cities in the Nation.

Sadly, the key most logical reason was missing in my opinion because most writers avoid the issue like a plague.

My point is if we face the reality of the logic to discern why shootings are occurring in mainly Black urban areas and the majority of victims are Blacks, if compared to other communities in general across the Nation, the key reason becomes apparent, at least to me.

In My Opinion,

The key reason is the majority of shooters, gang members, including many of tor innocent victims have never attended a private religious school to be taught in depth Bible discipline and morality and many grew up in single parent households.

Can I prove my opinion? I believe there is a very simple and logical way to prove my opinion.

Have an in-depth government study made to compare every convicted criminal regardless of their crime to discern if they attended a private religious school in their childhood and/or grew up in a signal parent household or are a drug addict or was in state of being on a recreational use drug such as marijuana, opium, heroin, fentanyl, crack, or cocaine, etc.

The reason I say government study is because I doubt any private study would have access to the private records of prison inmates..

Or in other words, let the cards fall on the table for everyone to see and discern what, in reality of the key reasons for the shootings taking place in our Nation.

You Decide

Would it be reasonable to believe if any person has been taught in depth religious morals, for example, thou shalt not kill, and believe there will be a final judgement after death by their Creator.

Would it be reasonable to believe that any child taught to understand the intrinsic meanings of the wisdom proveb, Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, (Proverb 9:10) would perhaps lessen the violence taking place in mainly high crime urban areas across the Nation.

Would it be reasonable to believe another wisdom proverb: Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old, they will not turn from it. (Proverb 22:6)

As for racism, why is it every generation believes they know more than the previous generation and for extreme believers of the Great Awaken philosophers were wiser than the bible teachings of wisdom and love?  For example, so in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets. (Matthew 7:12)

When will we voters wise up and elect legislators to support school choice or school vouchers to learn and discern what a wise king observed and recorded 3000 years ago? And instead of each new generation continuing to repeat the same folly as King Solomon predicted in his Ecclesiastes written in the later part of his life after he realized he would never be as wise as his maker?

What has been will be again,
    what has been done will be done again;
    there is nothing new under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 1:9)

Would Bible teachings, if understood in depth, help reduce in the future the present violence being experience in our Nation because it is obvious that what is not being taught in public secular schools is resulting in the folly. For example, what we have experienced in recent history of World Wars and conflicts between Nations and what we are now hearing and reading in the news in our contemporary times in the USA?
