The Left dominates our iconic big cities. This is the result. Out-of-control crime. After Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York City, America does not have a worse mayor than Mayor Lori Lightfoot of Chicago. Lightfoot’s radical anti-police policies (here, here) have made Chicago perhaps the most dangerous big city in America. Even the Chicago Bears want to flee the city.

49 Shot During Father’s Day Weekend in Mayor Lightfoot’s Chicago
By Breitbart, June 21, 2021
Forty-nine people were shot, five fatally, over Father’s Day weekend in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago.
Breitbart News noted 23 people were shot, two fatally, Friday into Saturday night alone in Mayor Lightfoot’s Chicago.
On Monday morning ABC 7 / Chicago Sun-Times pointed out the total number of weekend shooting victims was at 49, with the number of fatalities at five.
Breitbart explained the first two fatalities of the weekend occurred on Friday.
The third fatality of the weekend occurred Saturday night about 9:15 p.m., when “a man and a woman were ambushed in the 3200-block of West Division Street by three gunmen who fired shots at them.”
The 24-year-old man was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead while the 25-year-old female was hospitalized in critical condition.
On Sunday morning around 1 a.m. a 32-year-old woman in a vehicle was fatally shot by a gunman in another vehicle. She was riding “in the 2100-block of North Oakley Avenue” when the other vehicle pulled up alongside and opened fire, fatally wounding the woman.
Less than an hour later, at 1:40 a.m., a 21-year-old was shot and killed while driving a Jeep “in the 3100-block of West Augusta Boulevard.”
The Chicago Tribune observed a total of 1,587 people were shot January 1, 2021, through June 14, 2021. That figure represents fatal and non-fatal shootings combined and means 195 more people were shot in 2021 than were shot during the same time-frame in 2020.
