How ironic it is that this mayor, who supported defunding the police now makes a statement,
“It’s a very sad and tragic day for our city,” said Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot. “My heart aches for the loss of life.”
As the stats grow with Chicago leading in homicides, and shootings, gun violence, and just recently (3) people, including a 14-year-old boy, gunned down and 17 people injured in separate shootings last month, that it never ends. Weak leadership, far-left ideology, and absolutely no respect for police, period!
I would like to know where the outrage from the men and women in blue is to begin, to step up and say enough is enough, turn your backs on this weak mayor who thinks that by making a statement as she did above, and meeting with the family of this 29-year-old police officer, coming onto the force in 2018, now dead, is going to soften the blow?
Isn’t it also ironic that “She” the Mayor of Chicago has her own private security, while citizens and residents go without? Defunding the police? I am tired of seeing our men and women in blue, black, tan, green, or white deal with such leadership.
We need to do something and that means with the picture I saw of all the police officers standing in condolence, outside the hospital for those shot, turn your backs, let the mayor know that you’re not going to take anymore!
“All these officers did was stop a car, make a traffic stop, and then it happened! “
Speaking to reporters about the shooting, Mayor Lori Lightfoot urged Chicagoans to end what she called “the constant strife” over the roles of police.
“The police are not our enemies,” she said during a news conference Sunday. “We must come together. … We have a common enemy: It’s the guns and the gangs.”
No Mayor, it’s not just the common enemy of guns and gangs, it’s the leadership you portray and have portrayed against the police to be in line with the far left, BLM, and Antifa. You are now worried about your position and whether you will be re-elected. That’s what your soft comments suddenly add up.
Heaven forbid if you could not get your hair done because of COVID, but found a way to do so, or heaven forbid you lost your high-paying job and the power it holds.
You Mayor, along with many others who spout off about defunding the police need to put on a uniform without a vest and go into the field, ride in a police unit that is being stomped on, or better yet, stand outside a unit and do a traffic stop, while someone points a gun at you and maybe throws an object towards you.
I pray for the family of every police officer that has died fighting to save another. I pray for each of them that by their death, something good will come of it, perhaps the surge of officers all over the United States will make a cause to stand up and do something! Enough is Enough! How many more will die?
A country cannot survive without Law Enforcement, and it sure cannot survive with mayors who want to defund police, abolish ICE, take away our gun rights while they themselves demand protection.
My years as a cop are gone, but my heart is connected to all men and women who take on this vocation, and the 10% that have made us look bad and have had the nerve to put the uniform on, only to give us a bad name, thanks a lot!
I believe in community policing, but that can’t happen in defunding the police.
To the officer’s family of the female who died, and the ones before you, the wounded”, you will never be forgotten, mayors like Lori Lightfoot and others like her, will not be forgotten, and the blood they helped spill is on them!
