While Chicago was roiled by another day of protests and looting in the wake of George Floyd’s murder, 18 people were killed Sunday, May 31, making it the single most violent day in Chicago in six decades, according to the University of Chicago Crime Lab. The lab’s data doesn’t go back further than 1961.
The police can't handle the riots. On top of that, the politicians will be cutting them down. Telegraphing this nonsense means a predictable, immediate, and sharp spike in thefts, assaults, and murders.
Of course, they'll blame Trump for being the most lawless and violent president in American history in the coming months.
