The hot weather must have stirred up the blood of the youth of Chicago so they went on a rampage.
“Hundreds of teens cause fiery chaos in Downtown Chicago as they torch cars in rampage organized on social media: Vastly outnumbered police manage just 15 arrests.”
It appeared as if police were unable to handle the crowd and were seen escorting innocent bystanders and tourists to safety.
Mayor Lightfoot said while many of the young people gathered to have a good time and enjoy the weather, some were involved in ‘reckless, disrespectful and unlawful behavior.’
So burning cars, assaulting passersby and shooting each other is reckless and disrespectful. That’s a very revealing interpretation. What would it take for her to call it a riot, mass decapitations?
Lightfoot noted that Chicago police leadership has assured her they will ‘make the necessary adjustments to address these teen trends issues as we move into the summer months.’
But the most telling statement comes from the mayor-elect, Brandon Johnson:
“It is not constructive to demonize youth who have otherwise been starved of opportunities in their own communities,” he said. “Our city must work together to create spaces for youth to gather safely and responsibly, under adult guidance and supervision, to ensure that every part of our city remains welcome for both residents and visitors.”
Go ahead burn the city down I’ve got your back just keep voting for me and you can do whatever you like.
So this is before the new mayor takes office. Can you imagine what will be going on by Juneteenth? The devolution is moving along nicely. Maybe Mayor Johnson doesn’t even get through the first year of his term before he throws in the towel and calls for Illinois to enact martial law. Either way we’re getting a ringside seat to the next stage in Joe Biden’s America. Well, it’s a hell of a ride.
