(FreedomJournal.org)- Democratic Mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot is making a name for herself as one of the least effective mayors in the country. The disgraced mayor, who was spotted getting her hair cut during lockdown while telling her residents not to, has overseen a huge spike in crime in her city and very little appears to be being done about it.
Over the last weekend, crime skyrocketed again, with more than 65 people being shot in her city, 10 of which were fatal.
According to NBC 5, the shootings started spiking at around 5:30 p.m. in the 8200 block in South Drexel, Chicago. It all started with three people who were shot by someone in a vehicle, which is known as a “drive-by shooting.” The victims were simply standing on a sidewalk when the senseless attack occurred. In the attack, one 14-year-old boy was shot in the face, a 27-year-old woman was shot in the buttocks, and a 21-year-old man was shot in the arm.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the most recent shooting over the weekend period happened on Sunday night, just before midnight. The shooting occurred on the 11300 block in South Carpenter Street. One person is understood to have opened fire on a group of people who were gathered outside. It resulted in the wounding of three people, and the murder of one 26-year-old man and another 41-year-old man.
Does this sound like the kind of city you’d like to live in?
It comes as Chicago’s mayor continues to side with far-left politicians on some pretty radical policies, and even engaging in crazy stunts designed to get people to respond to the census. While Chicago continues its violent crime spree, Mayor Lightfoot is parading around with the “Census Cowboy.” I kid you not.
This kind of joking around might be sweet if her city wasn’t engaged in a war on the streets.
These numbers aren’t new, either. One year ago some 43 people were shot in the same weekend, killing three and injuring 41.
