Here’s a funny video that gave us a chuckle. We’re not supposed to listen to the “haters” who like to point out the homicide rate in Chicago. Mayor Lori Lightfoot won’t quit until Chicago is the safest big city in America. How long does she intend to stay in office?
Forget the “haters” who claim that Democrats were the ones calling to defund the police and replace them with social workers — Lightfoot has put more police officers on the street. But we thought they were all racists.
Seriously, what is this?
When it comes to addressing crime in our city, I’ve got a plan — and it’s working. I won’t quit until we’re the safest big city in America. pic.twitter.com/SKQBlDw1iI

Follow the data, hon.
Your “plan” is not working – unless “war zone” is your actual plan?

If it’s working, it would appear it’s a 20 year plan, we don’t really have that long and deserve better.

No one in the replies seems to buy this

I used to live there, and left because of the crime and the expenses. Everyone I know from the city has gone to the burbs or left the state since you’ve become mayor.

The city is not safe. The state of Illinois has gotten progressively worse. There is crime now in areas and neighborhoods that used to be safe. When people are getting carjacked and robbed in places like Lincoln Square and Lakeview, there are problems.

This isn’t a serious ad.

“I’ve got a plan. And it’s a working plan. And this plan is such a plan as to defeat all plans.”
“What’s the plan?”
“It’s working! Don’t you see the plan?! The plan is the plan! It’s brilliant!”

My neighbor below me on Halsted and diversey got broken into last week. Place was ransacked. They had fingerprints to find the person but cops “had other priorities”
It’s not working.

My 11 year old asked me if we were going to get car jacked when we went downtown for Christmas a few weeks ago. Lori must be doing a great job…

I watched this video while being mugged on the Red Line.

You’ve had (close to) 4 years to implement this “so called” plan, but now that you’re in serious trouble, it’s your priority? Sorry Lori, you’ll never get my vote again.

The Safest City for Criminals!
People are leaving your city because you have turned the city into a shooting range. Just resign.

Seriously, does anyone believe this? The safest big city in America? We’re old enough to remember when President Trump was ready to send in help, but Lightfoot said that under no circumstances will she let Trump’s “troops” terrorize the citizens of Chicago. But she loves the cops.
