Chicago residents are voicing their unhappiness about thousands of dollars in damages to their property from rampaging “takeover” rampages by “little rascals.” We wrote about this in “DESCENT: Chicago lawlessness grows under ‘Big Brain’ Brandon Johnson; Chicago Police get no love or support from other City Departments.“
Guess what folks. You (or your fellow Chicagoans) voted for a mayor who doesn’t like law-and-order. Or public safety. You and your fellow residents are getting what you voted for. Good and hard.
Comedian Dominic Rescigno had just finished a show at Annoyance Theater when he tried to get to his parked car in the 900 block of Belmont Avenue.
“I see a riot happening down the street, surrounded by cops that are watching,” he said. “I went up to one of the cops and said ‘my car’s in there’ and he said ‘you’re bleeped,’ and I was.”
He said he couldn’t see his car, but he feared the worst.
“I could see that people were jumping on cars. I couldn’t see my car, but I knew,” he said. “This morning, we walked down at 6:30 a.m., and it was totally destroyed.”
Rescigno said he and his partner bought the car as a Christmas gift to each other. Now, it’s in a shop, with an estimated repair bill of $15,000.
“Everyone’s like ‘you have to call insurance.’ We did, and they’re like ‘you don’t have the package that covers mob insurance,’” he recalled with a sigh. “I thought (it was a joke). I didn’t realize I needed to check the ‘mob’ box.”
Well, now you know, Dominic. You just got a $15,000 lesson in what voting for a soft-on-crime, anti-gun candidate gets you.
It gets you defenseless and the victim of crime.
It’s nothing personal Dominic.
Here’s the upside for you, Dom. You’re not alone. Plenty of other people (including maybe you and your partner) either have or will so get victimized as well.
It’s just part of the big city experience. Embrace it, buddy.
