Looters smash business windows along Chicago’s Magnificent Mile after police-involved shooting


CHICAGO — Hundreds of young people looted stores, broke into indoor shopping malls and battled with police overnight Sunday into Monday in the city’s central downtown business district.

The reason for the unrest, according to several looters who spoke to The Washington Post on Monday, were reports alleging a police-involved killing of a Black man on the city’s South Side late Sunday afternoon. But police said those accounts were misinformation spread across social media that appeared to encourage people to head downtown to create violence.

Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown said Monday that officers responded to a call about a man with a gun in the Englewood area; once spotting the man, they pursued him on foot. After the man shot at them, police said, the officers returned fire. The man, 20, is now recovering at the University of Chicago Hospital and is expected to survive, police said.

Oh golly, more peaceful protests in Chicago last night. It's a shame that these businesses ganged up and shot the man who was being chased by and shot at the police. I mean, why else would people be vandalizing these stores in the Magnificent Mile? It couldn't be that they just saw an opportunity to steal from some expensive stores could it?

There was a time in this country, when such civil unrest was put down with force. Having emasculated our Police and our Legal system, we now have mayhem in the streets. With no end within the foreseeable future.

These are not protestors, much less are they peaceful protestors.
Historically and properly, civil disobedience,; ie; protestors, used to be exactly that. "CIVIL." The arguments against the government or social structure were made by force of numbers,. Not by force of terrorism.

Over 60 days of terror in some cities. There is no longer time for patient reflection on demands. Put them down like the barking mad dogs they are.
That includes the politicians that tolerate the burning of their cities. By their tolerance and intentional in action, they are at least as responsible as the miscreants doing the damage.


If we can arrest someone for not wearing a mask, we most certainty can and should arrest and convict persons for intentionally looting, maiming, destruction of property and endangering with reckless abandon, the safety of our citizens.

Enough tolerance of tantrum babies. Swat them on the @ss and send them to jail or back to their mommy's basement.

In an effort to prove President Trump cannot run the country, City mayors and State governors have allowed Covid-19, along with rioters and looters, endanger the property, livelihood, and often the very lives of their citizens.

In point of fact, it is not the President's job to run the country at the civilian level.. It is theirs.

Enough already.

Every working shop keeper, business owner, tax paying employer or employee, should think about their past voting record which brought such lackluster leadership and mayhem to their cities and States.

Without law and order, there is no safety in operating or living in a city , the purpose of which is to enjoy law and order and safety. Such stability is paramount in any civilized society.

I believe Portland, or Seattle, city council just voted 7 to 1 to defund their police. Not one of those clowns should see re-election this fall.

My, my, the iron law of mob rule is taught again in Chicago. The Mayor and council looked the other way as violent Leftist thugs aided and abetted by so-called peaceful protesters carved a path of destruction in the city. The helpful prosecutor simply declined to press charges emboldening the rioters to go for another round of plunder and violence.

Failing to stand up to the mob and worse declaring allegiance to its front group, BLM, only emboldens the radicals bent on destroying the Republic. Even sympathetic politicians become targets of the mob's insatiable need for targets.

I heard the great Kim Foxx say yesterday that she has no idea why this stuff is happening in her peaceful city.

It's because the rioters are real and she, along with the mayor, is a fake.

I wonder if the left will try to blame this on ANTIFA, racists or rightwingers instead of the actual people responsible?
