Chicago Democrat Congressman Bobby Rush revealed in a Thursday press conference that a detail of Chicago Police assigned to safeguard his office during the city’s recent race riots neglected to deter looters pillaging the mall in which the Democrat’s congressional office is located.
“They even had the unmitigated gall to go and make coffee for themselves and pop some popcorn, my popcorn, in my microwave while looters were tearing apart businesses within their sight, within their reach. And they were in a mood of relaxation, and they did not care about what was happening to the businesspeople in this city,” said Rush, a Chicago Democrat known for defeating Barack Obama in a primary election in his earlier career. “They didn’t care. They absolutely didn’t care.”
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot went on to speak at the press conference, claiming that the police exhibited a “deplorable lack of responsibility to do their job at time when city and fellow officers needed them most.” She claimed that their lack of action “gave the impression that police don’t care if black and brown communities were looted and burned.”
At some point during the night of May 31st, a rioter broke into Rush’s office, remaining in the office for several hours, apparently after the police had left. The looting and rioting in Chicago was among the worst in the country, with 18 murders occurring in the citywide crime spree on that day alone, making it the most violent day in 60 years of Chicago history.
A Chicago alderman exploded at the mayor for the lacking police response to the criminal rampage, cursing out Mayor Lightfoot for refusing to respond to his concerns that riotous looters were set to target residents of his district in their homes.
As it turns out, Chicago’s Democratic leaders are in sore need of a police department that acts decisively to deter and prevent crime.
Minnesota Governor Asking President Trump to Declare Riots a Federal Disaster In Hope of Receiving Bailout Funds
Weren’t they peaceful protestors?
Minnesota Governor Tim Walz is requesting that President Donald Trump declare the recent rounds of race riots in Minneapolis a federal emergency, so that the state may access federal bailout funds intended for communities affected by disasters.
Governor Walz and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey largely stood by idly as race rioters destroyed and damaged more than 700 buildings in the riots, which occurred after the controversial death of George Floyd during a questionable arrest at the hands of the Minneapolis police department. The property damage from the widespread riots is estimated to range in the tens of millions, and Frey is already pushing a federal bailout to repair the damages enabled by his unwillingness to prevent criminality and support of the rioters’ “message.”
Governor Walz referenced the victims of the riots in a statement requesting the bailout, callously ignoring that the victims of the riots were not only victimized by criminal riots, but simply ignored in their hour of need by state and local officials unwilling to confront left-wing criminality in the name of “justice.”
“We’re asking our federal partners to step up and help our communities recover,” demanded Governor Walz. “We need to come together to ensure Minnesotans who were victims of this destruction have access to critical infrastructure they need so they can go to the grocery store, pick up their medication, and live their lives. Together, we will rebuild.”
The Governor’s estimate of property damage from the riots is considerably greater than what the mayor estimated, claiming that combined damages from the destruction could cost as much as $500 million.
In the new world of unabated criminality and violent destruction from vicious gangs in Democrat-controlled cities, Democrat officials will always be prepared to come cup in hand to American taxpayers with hopes of funding the repairs of the rioting that they enabled, allowed, and perhaps even tacitly supported. No responsibility or integrity.
