    "Chicago mayor: Police 'are losing the streets' to major eruptions of violence

    [​IMG]



    Chicago’s new mayor is taking issue with the city's police department as the city continues to see far more homicides than New York and Los Angeles, as well as major eruptions of other violence.

    “One weekend does not make a trend,” Mayor Lori Lightfoot said Tuesday, according to Fox 32. “But we've now had a couple weekends where it feels like we are losing the streets.”

    The mayor made the comments while in New York to attend the opening of the Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative, which is funded by billionaire former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg "to equip [mayors] with the tools and expertise to effectively lead complex cities."

    She has been anti-LEO her entire life. She helped to keep the CPD from doing its job. She has helped promote going judiciously light on criminals....
    Lets just file this under "Duh"

    The police should immediately fall back to defensive positions and let nature take it's course. They should issue a statement that bodies should be placed on the curb at dawn, and they will be collected at some point during the day.

    Just decriminalize dealing drugs, drive by shootings, murder, mugging people and car jacking and the crime rate will drop like a rock.

    Here’s a crazy idea. Let citizens be armed in the city limits. Concealed carry; hell at this point open carry. It’s the Wild West anyway. Lol

    Yet another Democrat mayor, unable to control minority violence in their city. Would someone point out a large US city (almost all Democrat controlled for decades, in some cases forever) that isn't crime ridden?

    New mayor, of course, blame the cops. Are the cops blameless? Of course not but they serve at the pleasure of the mayor and Rahm Emanuel was her predecessor and inept. Don

    1. FIFY.
    2. Couldn't agree more with your point
    3. She said during the mayoral campaign that, notwithstanding $60 million in police overtime, the city has enough police officers. In reality, they're approximately 1,500 patrol officers below their historic average.
    4. She has no understanding of how to fix it.

    Such an embarrassment . . .

    ^^^make it legal now to carry.
    I believe it is “illegal” to carry a firearm on your person in the city limits.
    Once again, “gun free zones” don’t make it safer. It just gets politicians elected. And the majority of people there are too stupid to realize this.
    Corruption doesn’t help either-

    Has anyone seen this new Chicago Mayor on the Telly? This is surely not soothing evidence of getting the vital job done for almost 3 million residents!

    "One weekend does not make a trend.."
    Really? O.K. what does?

    "The mayor made the comments while in New York to attend the opening of the Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative, which is funded by billionaire former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg "to equip [mayors] with the tools and expertise to effectively lead complex cities."

    What "tools" are those Mayor? Hey Mayor dip-sheeeet, they are not complex, they are violent blacks on blacks. Complex? Really?

    Nah! Call Bloomberg, he has the answers - don't live in Chicago - where does he reside? :animlol::animlol::animlol:

    Not so crazy in my opinion!
    What they should do, is arm ALL the GOOD people in the city with AR`s and glock 10mm`s,
    surround the gangsters, spray`em! Call in the garbage trucks, pick up the trash, drive away.

    A purge is necessary. Its the only resolution. Problem solved...!
