It’s amazing that granting rioters’ demands to remove statues didn’t turn Chicago into Nirvana. Or maybe not. The Weekend’s Stupidity.
Now that Chris has been Meigs’ed, a new era of peace, love and wokeness will be ushered in with 100+ homicides a month.
Final Stupidity Tally: 3 killed, 59 wounded
2019 weekend tally: 8 killed, 43 wounded
2018 weekend tally: 7 killed, 39 wounded
Slightly better than the last few weekends, but they were epic disasters.
Chicago is on pace to see 100 homicides in the month of July. (As I write this, the total homicides for July-to-date is 97.) That is nearly 25 percent of the yearly total so far. (Which stands at 438.)
Law and order? We don’t need no stinkin’ law and order.
Mayor Lightfoot in the meantime is only saying how she is taking a hard line against having anyone – in particular federal agents – uphold the law. Because Orange Man Bad.
