Will the police ever discover the motive for the drive by shooting so parents can put pressure of elected officials to do something to prevent another shooting?
The Chicago Tribune article titled: Nervous and Somber, reported:
“Chicago police say they have not made any arrests nor have they released a motive as of Thursday afternoon.”
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient proverb and idiom to the issue of public reading about shootings and never learning what the motive was for the shooting.
A wise king winnows out the wicked; he drives the threshing wheel over them. (Proverb 20:26)
Idiom – what (someone) doesn’t know won’t hurt them
Remaining ignorant or uninformed about something will allow someone to not have to worry about, feel responsible for, or get upset by it.
What’s My Point?
I have written numerous posts about shootings I read about every day, yet never find out the motives.
My point is Mark Twain stated over 100 years ago “the purpose of news is to make people get angry enough to do something about it.”
“And if you don’t read the news, you are …. uninformed “
“And if your do read the news you are …misinformed.”
In My Opinion,
If and when ever, the motive for this shooting is revealed, will the concerned parents and community members get on the backs of the alderman to do something to prevent the next shooting.
Will knowing the motives for the shooting doanything in the future to prevent the next set of parents from experiencing being nervous and somber?
Or will knowing the motive make them angry enough to do something about it according to Mark Twain?
In other words, the news reports never seem to report the motives for the shootings to make communities angry enough to elect politicians to do something to prevent the next set of parents to not have to experience being nervous or somber worrying that their children may be the next victims.
Instead, in the upcoming November election, most voters will elect the same alderman and the result is reading the news is just a waste of time because the result of reading the news is the same effect as the above idiom.
Where in ancient times a wise King would winnow out the criminals and drive the threshing wheel over them.
Which begs the next question, why is it that people never find out the motives of the thousands of shootings that have occurred and do what wise King Solomon did in ancient times.

Are politicians and news sources purposely never reporting the motives for some wise or foolish reason>
Or are they fearful that angry community members will get mad enough to do something about empty suit politicians they vote into office, over and over again for some reason in Chicago and other mainly Democrat run cities who for some reason are experiencing the most shootings?
Or are all better off to just turn off the news in our lives and follow the path of the above idiom same as we are now doing by continuing to vote for the same politicians over and over and over again.?
