Chicago Mayor Lightfoot blames everyone but herself for BLM riots/looting

On Sunday night, BLM agitators clashed with police as rioters vandalized stores in downtown Chicago, with officers returning fire after being targeted by gunfire.

More than 100 people were arrested and 13 officers wounded as rioters smashed windows and looted high-end stores, authorities said.

Read the whole story here.

On Monday, Mayor Lori Lightfoot gave a press conference wherein she proceeded to blame “gun control laws.”

Unless you live under a rock, you’ll know that the current strict gun control laws in Chiraq do NOTHING to stop the regular, double-digit weekend shootings in that town.

The good mayor then went on to blame Cook County State Attorney Kim Foxx due to her lack to file criminal charges against looters. As MyFoxChicago reported, Foxx fired back:

“The state’s attorney claims the relatively small number of looters who faced any charges after the destruction in late May and early June is a police problem and that it has not encouraged more looting.”

Read that whole story here.

Then hours later, Mayor Lightfoot stated she had a “productive call” with Kim Foxx and they are “committed” to seeing that these looting criminals are brought to justice. Don’t hold your breath.

I guess it’s a shell game as to who is responsible for the violence in that town. But we all know who is ultimately responsible, including those who elected this failure of a mayor.

They had video from this weekend’s violent mob riot in our lovely Windy city, where some actually shot guns at cops, in addition to tearing down storefronts, arson, looting, the usual. I looked closely, and there wasn’t a single paleface among the domestic terrorists. Not a single “peaceful protester” either. Where the hell are all these “white supremacists”, boogaloo groups, etc. that the press and Dems in Congress and local gov’ts have been telling us have been commandeering the riots after midnight (from the “legitimate” BLM folks demonstrating during the day)??? Best part was the end of the video (this… Read more »

BTW, listening to the idiots talking about it on the news… the next time I hear a reporter/”journalist” refer to insurrection, sedition, riots, rebellion, revolution, or civil war as “CIVIL UNREST”, or as the equally inaccurate “peaceful protest – demonstration”, I want to see them (or the person/s who made them say that) shot on sight. It’s getting offensively ridiculous.

And one more thing (per the linked article)… interesting that Yahoo has decided to “suspend” (censor) comments on their “news” pages. I’ve found that most in the past have slammed Yahoo’s obviously biased (that’s actually too soft a word for it) views in most…

I’m not sure what Mayor Lightbeer means by “commonsense gun control”-since ANY “gun control” violates the US Constitution,which she has SWORN to defend and protect,I submit there is no such thing as “commonsense” violations of the US Constitution.

Can a Mayor or Police Chief be held legally responsible for abandoning the peop0le they swore to protect when they elect to cut back their Police force in the face of Domestic Terrorists? Why aren’t residents of these Cities climbing over one another to file lawsuits against them? If someone in private business threw their clients to the wolves like that,with THOSE results,they’d get their asses sued off. I honestly believe it’s time to take off the gloves-if these usurpers-of-peaceful-protesters-messages want a fight,it’s time to give ’em one. Look,it’s NOT like they’re “swept up in the moment”-they full well know… Read more »

C(r)ook County State’s Atty Kim Foxx held a press conference to deflect blame off of her for letting far more criminals go free than her predecessor.

When the criminals know there won’t be any consequences for getting caught, this is what happens.

The judges are controlled by Chief Judge Tim Evans, who’s controlled by Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle, who also controls Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx and Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart. 😮

Toni’s and Kim’s mantra is there’s too many Blacks in jail, due to systemic, endemic racism, fueled by the school to prison pipeline. This is what they believe. ☹️
