Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis has checkmated Chicago’s failing Democrat Mayor Brandon Johnson.
Gov. DeSantis is offering Illinois cops $5,000 to make the smart move to Florida.
Chicago has seen an explosion of violent crime in the few months Johnson took over.
However, rather than tackle the issue, the mayor has made excuses for the thugs by blaming their crimes on a lack of investment in African-American communities.
Johnson, if left alone, will ruin what is left of Chicago.
The city refuses to allow police to chase violent thugs, even when they see them committing an armed carjacking, and the cops have had it.
Many will take DeSantis up on his offer.
We are launching law enforcement recruitment billboards in Chicago, where crime rates are soaring and officers are unappreciated.
While dozens of Illinois officers have already relocated to Florida, we look forward to welcoming many more with open arms and a $5,000 bonus. pic.twitter.com/kpVBOW3nLW

In a statement, DeSantis said:
“Florida strongly supports law enforcement and has consistently enacted commonsense criminal justice policies to keep our communities safe.
“We stand behind our citizen officers, and we give them the tools to succeed professionally and personally.
“Other states deputize noncitizens, enact policies that favor criminals over victims and work to overtly or covertly defund the police, but not in Florida.
“I look forward to welcoming the Illinois men and women in blue to the law-and-order state.”
