When it comes to protests in Chicago, which have often devolved into riots and looting, Mayor Lori Lightfoot has done little to nothing to protect business owners or law abiding citizens who just want to be left alone.
Yet now Mayor Lightfoot has reached her limit. Simply because the mob has come to her neighborhood.
She must be allowed to live safely, unlike you.
FOX News reports:
Lori Lightfoot defends ban on protesters on her block, citing her right to safety
Mayor Lori Lightfoot defended the Chicago Police Department banning protesters from the block where she lives, citing her right to safety.
The Democratic mayor said her family requires heightened security due to threats she receives, but did not elaborate.
“I think that residents of this city, understanding the nature of the threats that we are receiving on a daily basis, on a daily basis, understand I have a right to make sure that my home is secure,” Lightfoot said, according to the Chicago Tribune.
She said comparisons to how the police department protected previous mayors’ homes, such as that of Rahm Emanuel, were unfair because: “This is a different time like no other,” Lightfoot told reporters.
After massive street protests after the killing of George Floyd in May, Chicago police banned protests near the mayor’s home. Officers were instructed to arrest anyone protesting near her Logan Square residence.
Can you believe this hypocrisy?

How dare she put herself on a pedestal like this.
She did nothing to protect the people she was elected to serve.
