    Maybe burning down the city over George Floyd wasn't a good thing. Listen to this bunch, the leaders of Chicago in an on-line video conference befuddled in the new "no Police" environment. https://news.wttw.com/2020/06/05/wh...-community-aldermen-react-panic-sorrow-unrest

    This was on the 2nd day of the riot, the mayor and the Alderpersons. Now she is saying how she didn't ignore the 'hoods for the down town district. Well they torched and looted the down town district too and after that they torched and looted their own 'hoods. Then the gangs went on road trips to the suburbs.

    They are screaming for the Police to "engage" while she is firing those that did. Now she's swearing to bring back business's to the poor black communities Looted by their own out of towners. https://www.foxbusiness.com/politics/lori-lightfoot-alderman-chicago-walmart-looting

    They aren't going to come back because this was more then just a riot. This was a take over of a city that will happen time and time again to varying degree's and the police dont trust her or the city and they wont engage with force over property. They were beating the cops down on the street and she's firing cops who flipped the bird back at these animals throwing bricks at them.

    The south and west side Alderpersons dont sound like Fans about de-funding here. https://news.wttw.com/2020/06/05/wh...-community-aldermen-react-panic-sorrow-unrest
