Shocker, not: The thugs in Chiraq ignored Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s orders.
Headline on Monday night from MyFoxChicago: “Chicago sees deadliest Memorial Day weekend in years: 10 fatally shot, 31 wounded.“
This is Chiraq’s deadliest Memorial Day weekend since 2015. Read all the details here.
And this occurred despite Chicago Police increasing patrols to enforce Mayor Lightfoot’s stay-at-home order. From a story three days prior:
“As the long holiday weekend kicks off, Chicago police say they will be enforcing the stay-at-home order.
The city is calling it an “all-hands-on-deck” strategy. Chicago police are increasing patrolling, including near major transit hubs and that is just one of the many things are doing to help keep people safe this weekend.
Memorial Day weekend in the past has typically been one of the most violent times in the city.
“This Memorial Day weekend will be like no other,” said Rich Guidice, Executive Director of the Office of Emergency Management and Communications.
CPD will enforce the stay-at-home order and be on the lookout to breakup large gatherings and issue citations.”
Well, this Memorial Day weekend was like no other…but not in the way they anticipated. Great leadership, Mayor Lightfoot!
(FYI: Mayor Lightfoot’s Twitter bio now includes the following: “Delightfully strict.”)
