More tyranny from the Democrat Party. They are rapidly eroding our liberties with impunity. This must be fought. Protests are not good enough. Americans who value our way of life must make the tyrannical Democrat Party pay at the ballot box in November. #Trump2020! #GOP2020!

Chicago mayor threatens anyone who disobeys lockdown: ‘We will shut you down, we will take you to jail’

‘We are not playing games. We mean business, and we will shut this down one way or another’

By The Blaze, May 3, 2020

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot threatened to issue citations and even arrest anyone who violated stay-at-home orders. Lightfoot issued a strong warning to her constituents who don’t comply with the lockdown orders during a COVID-19 press conference on Saturday.

“We will shut you down, we will cite you, and if we need to, we will arrest you and we will take you to jail,” Lightfoot said. “Don’t make us treat you like a criminal, but if you act like a criminal and you violate the law and you refuse to do what is necessary to save lives in this city in the middle of a pandemic we will take you to jail, period.”

Lightfoot said that compliance with the stay-at-home order has gone down from 82% to 77% over the last week.

“This frankly doesn’t come as a surprise, given the warm weather. We’ve all been cooped up. We all miss our friends, and we all want to go outside and gather in groups,” Lightfoot said. “However, those aspirations simply cannot become a reality in the middle of a pandemic.”
