Christopher Wright was a well-known businessman in Chattanooga, Tennessee. He had a good life. A married man. Three children – including a newborn.
The other day he was in downtown for a high school reunion – meeting up with alumni from The Baylor School.
Mr. Wright was accosted on the street by a career criminal. He was shot in the head and he died at a nearby hospital.
The killer is a man named Darryl Roberts. Over the years this thug has been arrested and charged at least 66 times.
In 2003 he pulled a knife on a TJ Maxx security guard who tried to stop him from shoplifting.
In 2009 he pulled a gun on a store clerk. And in 2010 he fired rounds into a house during a home invasion.
He’s been arrested more than five dozen times, but the New York Post reports he’s never served more than sixth months behind bars.
Our justice system is broken. Defund the police, bail reform. Progressive policies that are putting all of our lives in danger.
And now a little baby — born just eight weeks ago — will never know her father.
