Democrat-controlled Chicago has seen a horrifying 139% increase in murder since last year. Mayor Lori Lightfoot has overseen one of Chicago’s most devastating crime waves.
The city of Chicago suffered 105 murders as compared to 44 in July of 2019, an absolutely unprecedented increase.
The bad news for the citizens of Chicago isn’t over with the murders, shootings alone are through the roof.
There have been 406 shooting incidents in Chicago, up from 232 last July. The violence is unacceptable and city leadership absolutely needs to be held accountable for this.
Mayor Lori Lightfoot had the audacity to deflect blame for the violence on surrounding states. She told CNN, “Our gun problem is related to the fact that we have too many illegal guns on our streets, 60 percent of which come from states outside of Illinois.”
Mayor Lightfoot is ignoring the fact that those surrounding states do not have the same problem with violence as Chicago. She is the one in charge and if she can’t get the city under control she needs to be thrown out.
