Mayor Lori Lightfoot will not activate the National Guard because of her hatred of President Trump. She would rather watch her citizens get slaughtered day after day. Mayor Lightfoot has blood on her hands. Like Mayor Bill de Blasio, Mayor Lightfoot must be removed from office. Remember that a vote for Joe Biden is a vote for this carnage to go national. Joe Biden will support defunding the police to appease the Left.

Chicago shootout at funeral sends at least 14 to hospitals, police say
By Fox News, July 22, 2020
“All we saw was just bodies laying everywhere,” witness Arnita Gerder told WMAQ. “Shot up everywhere, all over. Legs, stomach, back, all over the place. We thought it was a war out here.”
An SUV was traveling on 79th Street around 7:30 p.m. when people inside opened fire on funeral attendees, the Chicago Police Department’s First Deputy Supt. Eric Carter said during a news briefing.
The attendees exchanged gunfire with the vehicle, which sped off before crashing a short distance later. The people inside that vehicle ran off in multiple directions, Carter said.
Police were interviewing one person of interest but no arrests have been made and the shooters were not immediately known, police said. The victims — all adults — were taken to five separate hospitals. At least nine were listed in serious condition, the Chicago Fire Department told local media.
The victims included at least four women between the ages of 24 and 38, one of whom was shot in the chest, police said. Other victims include a 40-year-old man struck in the chest, arm, and forearm, and two men, aged 32 and 22, who were shot in a hand.
The person in custody was not injured during the incident, according to Carter. No other information about the victims was available.
Police said the shooting happened at or near the site of a funeral or post-funeral event for a man fatally shot last week in the Englewood neighborhood of Chicago.
Officers found some 60 shell casings at the scene. It was not known if the two groups had interacted with each other prior to the shooting or if the gunfight was gang-related.
“We saw a car with about six bullet holes in it and it was turned facing the grass like he lost control. We saw a hat down on the ground and evidently it was his,” Kenneth Hughes, told WMAQ.
Gerder and Hughes told the station that everyone shot appeared to be wearing white.
