Chicago Alderman Overrules Lori Lightfoot on Teen Rioters: ‘Some of Them Could Use a Good Whooping’

Chicago’s failed Democrat Mayor Lori Lightfoot refused to say the word “mayhem” when asked about the rioting teenagers who took over the city for three nights last week.

Lightfoot said: “I’m not going to use your language, which I think is wrong, to say it was ‘mayhem.’

“The vast majority of the young people who came downtown came downtown because it was great weather and an opportunity to enjoy the city.

“That’s absolutely and entirely it. There are a few that came with different intentions.

“They have and they will be dealt with.

“The young people have an opportunity and a right to enjoy the entirety of our city but they have to do it in a way that is respectful of people and property.”

However, despite Lightfoot’s claims, videos from the weekend show huge violent mobs of teens running wild in the city, not just small groups as she suggests.

South Side Alderman Pat Dowell, a Democrat, overruled Lightfoot: “The mayhem happening downtown and at the 31st St. Beach is appalling.

“No other community abdicates parental responsibility for their children.

“None. Until parents collectively take back control of their homes – nothing will change.”

Chicago Alderman Jeanette Taylor, also a Democrat, said:

“You can go to jail if you whoop your children, some of them could use a good a– whooping.

“Sorry they could,” she added.

“I don’t justify this behavior, but think about this: would they be downtown if they have things in their own community?”

A shocking video surfaced that showed a woman getting brutally beaten during the mayhem, further embarrassing Lightfoot.
