Thousands of people have been arrested for allegedly peaceful protests in Chicago.
Last week, Mayor Lori Lightfoot banned these allegedly peaceful protests from coming into her neighborhood, claiming she had received threats and that she had “a right to make sure that my home is secure.” Other Chicago residents don’t seem to have that right, however.
Six people were arrested in Lightfoot’s Logan Square block for failing to disperse after police asked them. The protesters were arrested for “misdemeanor residential picketing,” WGN9 reported. None of the six arrested were actual Chicago or even Illinois residents; three were from various cities in New York, one was from Pennsylvania, another from Arkansas, and the sixth was from Seattle.
Police told WGN9 they had given the protesters a verbal warning that was ignored, leading to their arrests. More
If Mayor Lori Lightfoot would have stopped all this when it started it never would have gotten so far! When you reward bad behavior you only get more bad behavior!
She needs about 10k people at her front door, the insanity of letting mobs burn down whatever they want and looting and then making it illegal to protest in her neighborhood. If there were any real justice she’d be physically thrown out of town

Absolutely! The double standard is beyond belief, and way beyond bearing.

Of course. But other people’s neighborhoods are fair game.
What utter hypocrisy.

Safety and quiet for me, not for thee. When I was young, my mom told me that if it weren’t for double standards, liberals wouldn’t have any at all. She’s right.
