Chicago Mayor Goes Off On Reporter After Riots in City: "Do Not Bait Us!"

It should be common sense to everyone, but it seems that people have really gotten so dumb that they've forgotten what we want as a society.

We want order and we want safety.

Crime should be punished in such a way to discourage repeat offenders and to discourage others from doing the same. That's why we have a legal system.

In recent months, in some cities, they have forgotten about that completely. Cities like Chicago are only now trying to reign in the rioters and violence plaguing their streets. If that same violence had only been properly addressed in the beginning lawmakers could have very well saved lives.

In a press conference following a mass riot that broke out on the famous Magnificent Mile officials announced they had arrested some 200 looters and rioters. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot claims that they will continue to make arrests and punishments will be handed down.

When a reporter asked Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown to clarify if he believed that things would have boiled over to such a point if prosecutors had done their jobs properly, Brown agreed that violence was not handled from the beginning. However, before he could even finish speaking, Mayor Lightfoot jumped in.

"It almost sounds as though you’re saying this is the reason is because the courts and the prosecutors were not doing their job, that they’re going to easy on the looters from the last time…" said the reporter.

"Don’t take it from me, just go about what’s been done. I don’t want to do your job for you. There were no consequences for the people arrested," Brown began to reply.

“No, no, don’t — do not bait us! Do not bait us. This is a serious situation," Lightfoot interjected.

"People are concerned about their safety. Officers are concerned about their safety. So don’t bait us! What we are saying is as a result of what happened last night there have to be consequences," she continued. "We’ve got teams of people that aggressively out there identified the people responsible, looking at the plates and we're going to bring them to justice. But when we do and we do make those arrests our expectation is that this is going to be treated with the level of seriousness that, period. Don’t try to bait us, mischaracterize, pit one against the other, we’re not playing that. We are in a serious situation here and we need a serious response. That’s what we’re saying, period."

FINALLY! Doctor Joins Coronavirus Task Force Who Believes in Science, Not Fear Mongering

Ever since the coronavirus task force was formed with Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx on board, it has honestly been a mess.

I really shouldn't fault Dr. Birx too much as the main culprit is Dr. Fauci. He has been fear-mongering ever since the beginning and he's only been aided by the Democrats and the mainstream media.
