    Mayor Lori Lightfoot denounces vigilantism in Chicago after white men patrol neighbor

    Mayor Lori Lightfoot denounces vigilantism in Chicago after white men patrol neighborhood streets with bats.

    Citizens to Mayor Lightfoot- STFU.

    Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said the city will not tolerate vigilantism after groups of mostly white men patrolled the streets of the Bridgeport neighborhood on Wednesday night in response to a nearby city protest.


    Multiple streets were blocked in the Bridgeport neighborhood Wednesday night as nearby protests dispersed. Near West Pershing Road, water gushed from an open fire hydrant as small groups gathered on corners. Some of the men held bats. One wore a shirt that said “All Lives Matter,” one sipped a beer and another waved at an officer as he drove by. Additional groups of people, some armed with bats, lined West 31st Street.


    Asked about the situation in Bridgeport, a diversifying neighborhood that served as an Irish American power base for the Daley political family, Lightfoot said, “It is absolutely not appropriate for people to take up arms, bats, pipes, whatever in patrolling neighborhoods.”


    “We’ve seen that end with tragic results across the country and we’re not about to allow that practice to happen here in Chicago. If there’s an issue, call 911,” Lightfoot said. “I absolutely support neighbors being vigilant as to what’s going on on the streets and in their blocks but taking up arms, that leads to chaos and we’re not supporting vigilantism in the city of Chicago under any circumstances.”
    Good for them.

    Predictable.

    No one is going to come to your aid, but do not you DARE try and defend yourself....that breaks a cardinal rule.
    NONE ARE HELPLESS...There are only those WEAK ENOUGH to believe they are...and those STRONG ENOUGH to revel in the knowledge they are not.

    Tell the police to stand down
    Tell the people they must call 9-1-1 (Don't call if they're black)
    Disarm themselves, do not defend themselves or their property
    Let the rioters and looters have their way
    Deny Nat'l Guard access to portions of city under siege
    What could possibly go wrong...................
