Priorities: Mayor Lightfoot names committee to review public monuments across Chicago

Guess Chiraq Mayor Lightfoot has a lot of free time. Never mind the BLM rioting, looting and shootings in that city.

You know what they need?

A 20-person committee to catalog monuments and art on public land to determine which warrant attention and recommend new monuments or public art!

According to MyFoxChicago, the good mayor believes that this will “create a platform to channel our city’s dynamic civic energy to purposefully reflect our values as Chicagoans and uplift the stories of our city’s residents, particularly when it comes to the permanent memorialization of our history and shared heritage.”

Does that include this “civic energy,” Mayor?

Lightfoot also said her effort will develop a framework “for marking public space that elevates new ways to memorialize Chicago’s true and complete history.”

Here’s a glimpse of the true Chiraq:

I’m sure this new committe will solve all of their problems!

Hypocrite much? Singer Pink’s husband posts message saying looters will be shot

Carey Hart Instagram photo

Odd that in the past, Pink has posted social media messages advocating for “common sense gun legislation.”

Well maybe not considering it is Hollyweird folks. Guns for me but not for thee…

Also odd is that people are actually defending looters. Wonder if these people sleep with their front doors unlocked at night?

From Yahoo: As if the devastating fires taking lives and ruining homes in California weren’t enough, people are now dealing with looters capitalizing on evacuated or burned-down houses. That includes celebrities.

Singer Pink‘s husband Carey Hart‘s post — warning looters in Malibu, the location of the Woolsey Fire, that they “will be shot on” sight has gone viral. The photo, of armed men calling themselves the “PDC Posse,” some wearing bandanas or masks while waving guns, has been controversial. There are of course supporters (Second Amendment!), but many are rightly (nice bias there, Yahoo) questioning it.

“You’re willing to shoot to kill people over your material ‘valuables’?” one commenter wrote to the retired motocross star. You sound like you’re actually dumber than the looters! I could see if you were protecting lives, but you have a gang of masked men with guns ready to kill over your insured possessions?!”

Pink, Hart and their two children were evacuated from their beachside home, which was spared during the fire. Generally, many residents who fled haven’t returned — and security systems aren’t working because there are power outages — so looters are taking advantage of the many multimillion-dollar mansions that are easy to gain access to.

Being in the thick of it gives a different perspective though. Shannen Doherty — who has been in Malibu to protect her house, which was spared, and help neighbors who weren’t as lucky (her friend’s home, where she was married, was charred) — posted an image on social media that was either the same or along those lines as Hart’s. She later deleted it after a similar debate broke out in the comments and apologized for sending the wrong message with a gun picture.

“If I offended anyone with my last post, which I deleted, I apologize,” the Beverly Hills, 90210 and Charmed actress said on her Instagram Stories. “I’m overly tired. I’m exhausted. I may not of used the best judgement.”

She continued, “Let me be clear — I do not like guns. I don’t like the idea that a bunch of people have guns. I don’t like the idea of shootings. I don’t like mass shootings. I also don’t like looters. And I don’t think it’s OK to pick through the remains of someone’s house. But I would also appreciate this not being turned into anybody’s political agenda. And please don’t assume you know what my beliefs or my politics are because you don’t. I keep those very private. I will say that I’m extremely stressed. I’ve been in Malibu trying to protect my house and checking on my neighbors and seeing many of my friend’s homes just completely destroyed.”

1 of 10 Stores in US Are Victims of Flash Robs

It happened again, last weekend, in a suburb of Washington, D.C.
I’m referring to what the media euphemistically and mistakenly term “flash mobs” when the plain truth is that these incidents should correctly be called robbery, looting, and race riots. The media also will not say what we can all see with our own eyes — the perpetrators are black.
[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bHyug2PvpB8]
Jack Cloherty reports for ABCNews, Aug. 16, 2011, that a “flash mob” invaded and looted a 7-11 convenience store in Germantown, Md., early Saturday morning, stealing all the snacks and candy they could get their hands on, then left the store as quickly as they came.
The store clerk pressed the silent alarm when he belatedly realized there was a robbery in progress, and a police cruiser responded in under a minute. But by then, the mob was gone.
Montgomery County Police spokesman Paul Starks said, “It was anarchy for 60 seconds. We’ve counted at least 28 individuals we can see on the surveillance tape. We already have a good idea of who some of these people are. We are going after them all, and if we can identify the ringleaders, they are going to face some serious charges.” Police suspect the mob was organized using social media like Facebook or Twitter.
The term flash mob was first used to describe impromptu gatherings of people to sing or dance in a public space, alerted by text, email or Twitter, but the Germantown incident is just the latest in a summer when flash mobs have turned from spontaneous, fun events to outright felony.
Other incidents include:

  • Missouri riot: On April 10, 2010, some 900 youths, some as young as 11, converged on the shopping and entertainment district, the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City. Police responded to reports of vandalism and assaults. One group of teens robbed and beat a couple from Grandview. A girl in a prom dress was shoved into a fountain. Fights broke out. Police had to use pepper spray to disperse the mob.
  • Ohio race riot: On July 4, 2011, in the Cleveland suburb of Shaker Heights, a group of 1,000 youths organized through social networking sites to fight and disrupt an event.
  • D.C. mob robbery: On July 4, 2011, in Washington, D.C., a flash mob robbed a high-end clothing store earlier this summer.
  • Wisconsin race riot: On August 5, 2011, a flash mob stormed the fairgrounds at the Wisconsin state fair in Milwaukee. “My mom just got attacked by a flash mob,” said a caller to 911. “Punched in the face for no reason. We need emergency help right away.”
  • Philadelphia race riot & looting: Nowhere has the flash mob phenomenon been more popular than in the Philadelphia area. There, a man was assaulted by a group of about 30 who were believed to have gotten together through Twitter, according to the Associated Press. On June 23, a few dozen young people looted several hundred dollars worth of merchandise in the Philadelphia suburb of Upper Darby, Pa.

The surge in flash mob crime prompted Philadelphia to impose a curfew for all minors under the age of 18 in targeted enforcement districts. Philadelphia’s black mayor Michael A. Nutter said, “This nonsense must stop. If you wanna act like a butthead, your butt’s gonna get locked up. If you wanna act like an idiot, move; we don’t want you here anymore. Parents who neglect their children, don’t know where they are, you’re going to find yourself spending some quality time with your kids in jail together.”
In Phladelphia, there have been no more violent flash mobs after about 70 young people were detained and then released to their parents, with a warning.

Buried in the ABCNews account is this alarming statistic:

The National Retail Federation estimates that about one in ten stores in the United States has been the victim of a “flash mob” invasion and robbery.

The Federation’s spokesman, Joe La Rocca, says, “These incidents can turn violent, they can injure customers, they can damage the store and then there’s the financial losses the retailers suffer.” In most cases, by the time the police arrive, the mob is long gone, making for a long arduous process to identify and prosecute the culprits.
The reaction from the Obama White House and Attorney General Eric Holder:
