Fox News political analyst Gianno Caldwell’s baby brother was murdered in Chicago last Friday. Gianno shared the news on Twitter:
“Yesterday was the worst day of my existence. I received a call informing me that my teenage baby brother was murdered on the south side of Chicago. Never could I have imagined my baby brother’s life would be stolen from him. Please keep my family in your prayers.”

Christian Caldwell was 18 years old and was shot and died after gunfire broke out in Morgan Park early Friday morning. The suspect fled the scene in a black SUV and no arrests have been made.
Gianno who is a Chicago native, told Fox News digital, “What I’m looking for right now is details from the police to discover who it was that murdered my brother. [M]y baby brother never had a chance.”
He is asking that the perpetrators “turn themselves in” and be “brought to justice”.
Gianno “never,” thought this would happen to one of his siblings. “I never, ever, ever thought that my baby brother, just turned 18, would ever be in this situation. We’ve never had anybody murdered in our family, and we’ve been through very, very tragic things,” he said. “God has always shielded each and every one of us, so I can’t understand how this happened. I’m trying to get the details to understand fully what’s going on here.”
Caldwell also went after Lori Lightfoot’s “soft-on-crime” policies that have plagued the city of Chicago, leaving police afraid of enforcing the law. He added that if criminals aren’t held accountable, “your family could be next.”
Fox News reported:
“I’m leaving the studio to go plan a funeral for my baby brother,” he said. “When we think about not just him, but the violence that has been created in Chicago, and some of the policies which has systematically – the soft-on-crime policies which we’ve seen in the city — they have to come to an end.”
“We gotta unhandcuff the police, allow them to do their jobs because they’re in fear of doing their jobs,” Caldwell continued. “I understand that we can have criminal justice reform, we can have police reform, but there has to be a balance because at this point criminals are unafraid of the police, they’re unafraid of the prosecutors, they won’t capitulate to the laws, so what do we do next? “
“We’re going to have to throw the book at them, and I understand we have compassion for people as we should, but at the same time, if we don’t, your family could be next.”
Monday night, Gianno made an appearance on ‘Hannity’ to bring awareness to what is going on in Chicago.
During his appearance, he tells Sean Hannity, “I feel shattered” after the murder of his baby brother who had recently turned eighteen. Gianno added, that living in Chicago “comes with a price these days” he didn’t expect that it would “come with a death sentence for my baby brother. Black bodies are being littered in the streets of Chicago”.
Gianno then moved on to talk about the police who are restrained by mayor Lightfoot’s “soft-on-crime” policies, which have only produced “dead fruit”.
On the same weekend, a five-month-old baby was shot and killed while she sat in her father’s car in Chicago. “You cannot prevent crime in this city unless you get tough and the city has decided not to get tough”, he stated.
He then said, “I hope Lori Lightfoot will make this case a priority, I’m hoping for it. I’m hoping the county prosecutor will make this a priority. I’m hoping that these four men that got out of a black SUV on Friday while my little brother was standing in front of a venue, just a few blocks from his home, and riddled the spot with bullets, I’m hoping that these men are captured.”
Gianno then broke down and lamented the life his brother will never be able to live because his life was taken from him.
Gianno is hoping to get something positive to come out of this. He continues to make appearances on Fox News in an attempt to hopefully bring forward a witness who can help capture the men responsible for his brother’s death, he has even asked that they turn themselves in.
Lightfoot has seemingly been unmoved by all the murders in her city. Recently police in Chicago were barred from chasing suspects on foot. It seems the hands of police are tied by those that are in charge in Chicago.
