    my wife found an article that stated a 4 time offender opened fire on police who returned fire wounding him and the story got twisted on social media that an innocent teen was shot by police which in turn fueled the riots/looting. in any case, lots of injuries and damage. will be great for tourism in the windy city.

    I live in northwest Chicago. Some stores actually closed early yesterday in anticipation.

    I think that a store should hire a squad of armed guards in full battle rattle.
    Bet that would stop the looting.

    I made a few calls. Total chaos by a bunch of thieving savages. They will be back with any made up excuse and the Cops on Mids will be totally over whelmed again. The Blue Line on Mids is skinnier then a super model who snorts coke already.

    Theres no Plan, theres not enough Cops and the ones we have have been told they are on 12 hour shifts "for the foreseeable future". Always great for morale. Its an insurrection of thieves who have been told its OK to destroy the city because they are to damn lazy to work for a Living to buy Legit. They'll be back, right now theres a lot of good deals in the Ghetto, cash and carry, for their drug money.

    Give 'em a week or so to shoot up the proceeds and they'll be back.

    So, we've been in Des Plains and Schaumburg the past few days. Rioting & looting in Downtown Chicago Sunday night. Then the derecho came through yesterday evening; had to pull the boys off the Des Plains River. Rioting & looting in Downtown Chicago Monday night.

    Can't wait to see what today brings. Maybe the New Madrid fault will let go.

    I'm shocked that stuff like this would be happening in MAGA Country!

    True story: Sunday night my wife and I were discussing a trip to Chicago that our daughter and 3 of her friends had been planning. They were going to stay Thursday and Friday night in the “nice” part of town. Our daughter is young and impressionable but not a liberal by any means. She’s a Trump fan but likes the big city vibe with a lot of things to do and see. I voiced my displeasure but was told that none of the bad stuff ever happens on Michigan Avenue and that’s where they’d be. Everyone knows what happened later that night. Trip was cancelled, no plans to reschedule = tourism dollars lost.

    Just fly a BLM flag on your rustiest beater vehicle and you will be fine.

    I think these liberal cities are going to end up with no businesses left, and consequently no tax income. The cities are going to die a painful death.

    The Mayors are driving business out, with their inaction and allowing and encouraging this mayhem.

    Obvious, I suppose.
