After presiding over four years of an orgy of violence and mayhem, and downplaying the severity of the crime problem in Chicago, the soon-to-be former Mayor Lori Lightfoot has some advice for her fellow Dems. “Speak the truth” about violent crime.
She actually advocated to get the bad people who commit these horrific violent crimes to get locked up. That’s almost 180 degrees out of phase with what’s she and the leaders of her party have done for the last four years in our state.
From Fox32 Chicago:
While speaking on a panel at the African American Mayors Association Conference in Washington, D.C., on Friday, Lightfoot called on Democrat mayors to address the growing crime in their cities.
“As Democrats, if we do not speak the truth about violent crime in our cities, we will be the worse for it,” Lightfoot said.
“I come to this conversation as a former federal prosecutor. I come to this as a former defense attorney, I am the sister of a returning resident,” Lightfoot continued. “But I know that there are people in my city that are wreaking havoc every day and need to be off the streets. That’s reality.”
Wow. Just wow.
Even a broken analog clock is right at least twice a day. Lori Lightfoot actually spoke the truth about who is driving Chicago’s crime problem.
Now if she and her bretheren will just start describing said violence as “gang violence” instead of blaming guns, we might be seeing a change.
Nah, that’s a bridge way too far.
