    The Mayor and Governors should be held responsible for the deaths and injury of every person. The cost vn of the destruction of all businesses and homes.
    This is terrors attacking our country and government allowing it.

    So, Mz Lightfoot, how’s your gun control laws working for you? Legal gun owners don’t go out and shoot up the city. Petty thugs/gangs use illegally obtained weapons and don’t care about your gun control laws. So how is it working for you?

    Lightfoot needs to be “REMOVED” immediately if not sooner. The city is under siege and she does nothing to protect her citizens. This us a horrible example for an American city😡 Remove her, and take back your Chicago🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

    It is real SAD that the Democrat run cities in America don’t care and are no longer working for their citizens.
    To have that many shootings and killings is a disgrace. Lightfoot needs to bring a strong police force against the gangs and STOP the carnage. Chicago will be a town no one wants to visit any longer because of the high crime. Get REAL Lightfoot and protect your citizens. There is no reason why young children have to continue to be caught in the crossfire.

    Say it ain’t so Joe I think with all of her success in Chicago like Obama’s she has definitely now qualified for the next democratic nominee for president.

    If the BLM movement is legit.., why aren’t they protesting about this violence in Chicago.., guess defunding the police is backfiring on the middle class black and white citizens of Chicago , maybe protesting with BLM is just a joke…, maybe America needs an ALM …, all lives matter organization to combat the real enemy in America …, gangs and drugs!

      All lives matter and that’s it and not one people and those crazy Democrats do not care about anything but their own pay and love rioting and love crime and mayhem and the simple solution is to crack down on all of the crime and to have a real tough police force lock up and to really enforce every existing laws and not to give in to the radical left wing liberal terrorists.

    Why would anyone who values life, want a Democrat in charge of ANY city. Which leads to the reason democrats must steal power to be in charge. No society anywhere in history has maintained their freedoms, when leftists were in power. Get ready for a winter of grief…the left has just stolen another way of life.

    Evidently it was Black on Black or Black on White because if it was white on Black the lives would have mattered and BLM, who truly cares, would be trying to start some riots.
