You probably know Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot as the politician that cut $80,000,000 from Chicago’s police budget last fall.
Unsurprisingly, murders are up in Chicago as a result. Up about five percent, in fact. (To those of you who don’t think five percent’s a big deal, remember these are HUMAN LIVES we’re talking about here – Zero percent is way too much.)
In fact, 43 people were shot in Chicago from June 9 to June 11 alone. At least that was down a bit from the prior weekend, which recorded 55 individuals taking a bullet.
8 out of the 98 that were gunned down have already succumbed to their injuries.
But don’t worry, I’m sure the few bucks Lori Lightfoot saved was worth the expense… Right Lori?
The message here is clear: police protect people. We can’t let liberals make us forget that.
