Meanwhile, Chicago’s new radical Democrat Mayor Brandon Johnson has made excuses for the criminals.
Johnson claims that the violent crooks are just kids doing stupid stuff.
According to Fox News:
The Democrat-run city, led by former Mayor Lori Lightfoot before her successor Brandon Johnson won the mayoral election in 2023, has succumbed to a wave of violence and criminal activity.
Dozens of people, including a 6-year-old, were shot in Chicago over Labor Day weekend.
The violent shootings also included a 13-year-old, who was shot in the head, and two 15-year-old teens were among six killed in separate incidents.
According to CWB Chicago, 8 people were robbed in 30 minutes during the crime spree:
Chicago police are investigating five armed robberies that occurred in under an hour Friday afternoon in Wicker Park, Logan Square, and nearby neighborhoods.
The spree began around 12:40 p.m. near Damen and Cortez in West Town.
A man told police that two offenders displayed guns during a robbery attempt, then fled in a black vehicle, possibly a Toyota.
He described them as Black males between 17 and 23 years old.
The younger one, who pointed a gun at the victim’s head, wore a blue mask and a black hoodie.
Then, just before 1 p.m., two robbers exited a black sedan with a broken side window to rob another man in the 1300 block of North Hoyne.
At about the same time, two masked men exited a small charcoal-colored sedan to rob three people in the 1700 block of North Troy.
The gunmen escaped with cash and wallets.
Another robbery occurred around 1 p.m. in the 3400 block of West Cortland.
Two men armed with at least one firearm robbed an Uber driver and another victim on the street, according to a report.
At 1:19 p.m., two men pushed a woman and took money from her pockets in the 1600 block of West Chicago Avenue.
No arrests were made for any of the crimes.
