Decimated by looting in several neighborhoods last night, including Gold Coast/Mag Mile.
 

It all appears to planned and coordinated.

Over 100 arrested.  One man shot.  Probably planned on social media.

Remind us: when did Chicago last have a Republican mayor?

On the positive side, only 40 shot w/ 4 dead over the weekend, which is much better than some recent weeks.

Gosh, I hope none of the looters (I think "socially responsible shoppers" is a more appropriate term) were injured or had their rights violated during the arrests.

Did you get any good loot?

Not to worry.  Mayor Lightfoot says she is going to come down very hard on the looters.

“The mayor clearly has not learned anything since May, and she would be wise to understand that the people will keep rising up until the [Chicago Police Department] is abolished and our Black communities are fully invested in,” the group said in a statement announcing a planned protest Monday night outside the 1st District police station in the South Loop.

 

“Over the past few months, too many people — disproportionately Black and Brown — have lost their jobs, lost their income, lost their homes, and lost their lives as the city has done nothing and the Chicago elite have profited,” the statement reads. “When protesters attack high-end retail stores that are owned by the wealthy and service the wealthy, that is not ‘our’ city and has never been meant for us.”

 

“These cops intimidated and beat people for nothing more than being at the scene of CPD’s violence,” Black Lives Matter Chicago said in the statement. “Yesterday, Chicago police continually proved that they do not keep us safe — they only cause violence, and escalation after the fact.”
