    I was putting posts in the Portland thread but, all hell seems to be breaking loose in Chicago so I'm giving it its own thread. See the Portland thread for a few more posts about it.

    There’s a caravan of dozens of cars filled with looters hitting Chicago’s luxury store fronts.

    I bet she'll address this the same as she did people enjoying themselves on the beach yesterday.

    Just kidding, she'll pretend nothing happened and everyone was as classy as usual.

    Hmmm... most/all the people in the beach pic are White. Most/all the looters are black. I wonder why the lesbian, black mayor won't condemn her own criminal brethren? A little racist, maybe?

    Listening to the scanner, the cops are helpless. Way outnumbered.

    We're all on our own.

    They will, as soon as they figure out how to blame Trump.

    "Chicago police return fire as looters hit Mag Mile, smashing windows and clashing with officers

    By PAIGE FRY and JEREMY GORNER

    Hundreds of people swept through the Magnificent Mile and other parts of downtown Chicago early Monday, smashing windows, looting stores, clashing with police and at one point exchanging gunfire with officers, authorities said. The shots were fired at Michigan Avenue and Lake Street around 4:30 a.m., nearly five hours into the widespread vandalism. Officers were not hit and returned fire, according to the department, which said it was not known if anyone else was hit.

    Earlier, an officer was seen slumped against a building by Grand and Wabash avenues as other other cops tended to him. It was unclear what had happened to him. Down the block, police in camouflage gear and shields briefly stood outside at a shop at Rush Street and Grand Avenue.
    The looting began shortly after midnight as people darted through broken store windows and doors along Michigan Avenue carrying shopping bags full of merchandise. Cars dropped off more people as the crowd grew. At least one U-Haul van was seen pulling up.

    Police made several arrests through the night and recovered at least one gun, officials said. One woman with shopping bags in her hands fell on the sidewalk as an officer was chasing her. Another woman appeared to have been pepper-sprayed. A rock was thrown at a squad car.
    The looting seemed to be centered in Streeterville and North Michigan Avenue, but some looting was reported on State Street in the Loop and on the Near North Side. By 3 a.m. police appeared to be getting things under control.

    Mayor sent out a letter requesting Fed help while blaming Trump on same page.

    They vote Dems, right. I'd let them burn for awhile yet.
    If I was Trump, I'd call in Fed troops, but they can take their time stopping at every McDonalds and Burger Kings, and Jewels grocery stores on the way. Get there by end of month.

    I can't wait to see the first media reports of "mostly peaceful protesters"...
