Chicago police return fire as looters hit Mag Mile, smashing windows and confronting officers - Chicago Tribune

The looting began shortly after midnight as people darted through broken store windows and doors along Michigan Avenue carrying shopping bags full of merchandise. Cars dropped off more people as the crowd grew. At least one U-Haul van was seen pulling up.

Police made “a lot of arrests” and recovered at least one gun, officials said. One woman with shopping bags in her hands fell on the sidewalk as an officer was chasing her. Another woman appeared to have been pepper-sprayed. A rock was thrown at a squad car.

Chiraq in chaos. BLM and libs reverting to their true natures again.

Re: Chicago police return fire as looters hit Mag Mile, smashing windows and confronting officers

This is getting absurd, what started off as one thing has become a mess where no one is really thinking about why there was such outcry.

Forget justice or even change... not going to happen under these conditions.

On a per capita basis, Chicago is a very safe city. Well, except for all that broken glass.

And funerals for children.

It has never been about justice or change. It has always been about Democrats creating as much violence, destruction, terror, and panic as possible prior to the election.

Try the BS on someone else, there was reason for people to be upset even if it was derailed by idiots (seemingly on both sides given what we know so far.)

Under 18 U.S. Code § 2331 the Democratic Party is a terrorist organization and under Public Law 107-40 we are still at war with terrorism. The assets of the DNC need to be seized and its leadership locked up in GITMO.

Trump said he was the "Law and order" president.

Save us Trump!

Indeed. Trump sent some of his Portland goons to Chi-town.

I guess the gangs are a bit tougher than the Wall of Moms.

Not for this particular event, no.

This apparently came about when police, responding to the terrified calls from citizens about a maniac running around the streets brandishing his firearm, shot that maniac when he opened fire at them.

There's simply nothing to reasonably protest here and certainly nothing to riot about.

This is the America Trump supporters wanted. They put him in office to get chaos. They got chaos.

So again, are you not entertained?

Re: Chicago police return fire as looters hit Mag Mile, smashing windows and confronting officers

BLM and libs had nothing to do with this, PoS, so stop your lying and dishonest narrative in your OP.

Here's a post by Helix earlier today in a Portland thread:
do not gather in crowds during a pandemic.
Here's my post to Helix which he didn't respond to:
Do not riot and loot overnight as we saw in Chicago last night. These are not BLM and should be vociferously condemned by BLM ASAP. People’s lives have been ruined.

It appears BLM wants to piss away an election. Good luck with this one today. Good luck getting people to watch any leisure sports where we get our problems rubbed in our faces.

Mayor Lightfoot is pissed and so am I, to the max.
Those being critical of Chicago could give a damn about the small businesses without insurance who are now bankrupt.
If I spoke as a Republican, this is looking like 1968 all over again.
Demwits are too ****ing stupid to understand this.

What would I have done, legally?
Fire back at those shooting at me.
Spray rioters and looters in the face with fluorescent material that won't come off.
Pull a very necessary Lafayette Park on these NON-protesters.

Your turn for solutions, since you think cities don't run this economy as they always have.

These rioting and looting assholes have never voted.
Do you remember 1968?
This is how Nixon got elected.

This is the America we got when leftists don't get their way. Seriously, it's you and yours doing this ****, and you're trying to blame others. Just like a a lefty to not take responsibility for your own actions.

Well, that's just objectively false. Nation-wide riots and protests don't pop out of a vacuum. Trump and his supporters have been trolling America for 3.5 years straight, which tends to increase anxiety, and you can't say the state of the nation isn't "tense." Next you have trump spending his presidency promoting law enforcement as a fascist, tough guy organization...which the police absolutely loved...and lo and behold you get hundreds of videos of police assaulting protesters with an obvious air of impunity. Add secret police dragging citizens away and throwing them in unmarked vehicles. And finally, throw in some right wing extremists pretending to be protesters.

Mix. Stir. Cook for four years. Serve hot.

Trump's America.

Narrowing it down to any one event is shortsighted, we have too many examples where this is getting absurd and doing nothing for the issues.

Re: Chicago police return fire as looters hit Mag Mile, smashing windows and confronting officers

Democrats have controlled every aspect of Chicago going back to 1937. They literally destroyed the black American families and communities and have sat back and watched the daily body counts and literally done **** all. and when their little ****hole powderkegs blow up, what do the leftists do? Shriek TTTTRRRRRUUUUUUUMMMMMPPPP!!!!!

It isn't any political persuasion, as you know.
These assholes are drunks, druggies, and gang-bangers.
They last thing they do is vote.
The first thing you did was politicize it.

I didn't see where you said what you would have done to the looters and rioters.
I said some of mine, like spraying fluorescent material at their faces that doesn't wear off.
Shoot back if they shoot at me.

Give no quarter to those ruining the lives of others.
Prosecute them to the fullest, as Mayor Lightfoot said.

The smash and grabs and riff raff are unrelated to any protest movements or political motivation. Bunch of nut bags likely high on meth out looking to **** some **** up.
