Lightfoot’s Shocking Admission About Crime
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot oversees one of the largest cities in America.
And it’s crumbling to pieces under her watch.
And now, she just made one shocking admission about Chicago’s sky-high crime rates.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is mayor of one of the most dangerous cities in America.
With a murder rate that is higher than it has been since the 1990s, Chicago is notorious across America for its violent crime.
What’s more, the city is now experiencing a new crime wave that involves roaming bands of thieves ransacking stores and running off with thousands of dollars worth of merchandise.
And yet, Lightfoot has repeatedly denied there’s any problem in Chicago.
The Hill reports, “Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) is calling for federal officials to help her curb gun violence in the city and target its root causes. Lightfoot urged U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland to utilize agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to address illegal firearms and for more prosecutors to bring criminal cases.”
After months of denial and attempts to shift the blame to gun owners or even small business owners for the crime wave, Lightfoot is finally admitting the truth that Chicago is in the midst of a violent crime wave the likes of which the city has not seen in over 30 years.
“The mayor also requested that judges in Cook County stop releasing people charged with violent crimes including murder, aggravated gun possession, sex crimes, illegal gun possession and kidnapping on electric monitoring,” adds The Hill.
