Lori Lightfoot has done a lot for the city of Chicago. She’s presided over a 74% decline in arrests, a police department so understaffed that it couldn’t respond to over 50% of the highest priority 911 calls last year, and Murder City, USA has achieved over 555 homicides so far this year…with almost three months remaining.
Crime continues to spiral out of control and companies and residents are fleeing.
So what does Her Honor do about the declining quality of life in her city, aside from promoting more failed gun control plans and anti-gun programs? In a city where her fellow African-Americans are overwhelmingly the victims of the violent crime (78.5% of homicides) she’s enabled and made more endemic?
Lightfoot doesn’t really seem to worry about violent crime. She doesn’t have to. She has her own 90-person protective detail. That’s more officers than are employed by most municipalities in the state.
Instead of tackling the crime, cultural, and economic issues facing the city, Lightfoot and her inner circle spent time composing, choreographing, practicing and recording a TikTok video of her singing and dancing, ostensibly to tout the charms and attractions of Sweet Home Chicago.
Fair warning, this is scary . . .

Mogadishu on Lake Michigan has racked up more homicides in 2022 than 37 entire states and the District of Columbia tallied in all of of 2020. Meanwhile the mayor urges people not to use guns to protect themselves and their families, but to instead call the city’s overwhelmed 911 system.
But when it takes twenty (20) minutes for officers to respond to a triple homicide (surveillance video below), does any sober Chicagoan think police be there to rescue them from an attacker, a robber, or rapist in their midst?
Warning: Graphic video.

It’s clear that Lightfoot isn’t even trying at this point. She’s not even trying to look like she cares. Smarter residents are tooling up. The smartest ones are getting carry licenses.
Meanwhile a CPD officer was nearly killed recently after a (naked) woman nearly ran him over – with his own squad car.
Video very very NSFW . . .

The Mayor has an election coming up next spring. We’ll see, once again, if Chicago residents have had enough crime and economic misery or if they’re content to vote for more of the same for four more years.
