Young criminals with guns run the show in Chicago. Between the Soros-funded prosecutor Kim Foxx decriminalizing crime, the state’s decarceration policies, and Mayor Lori Lightfoot defunding and denigrating the local police, the bad guys victimize people with impunity. As Tucker Carlson says, “it’s what the collapse of civilization looks like.”
How bad is it in Chicago? On Wednesday afternoon, gunfire broke out across the street from the Chicago Fire television show production set directed at a group of people nearby. This was while the NBC production team was filming a scene with the entire cast present. One of the rounds actually ricocheted off some of their filming gear.

Shooting Near Set Of ‘Chicago Fire’; No Injuries Reported https://t.co/hEw1VxV1IF
— Deadline Hollywood (@DEADLINE) September 14, 2022
Local rules require police “supervision” of film sets, mainly to discourage ne’er-do-wells from snatching equipment or robbing production crews or cast members. Specifically, production sets are required to have at least eight uniformed Chicago Police officers present. And present they were as the gunfire rang out.
In this case, the suspects in a dark SUV didn’t care. They didn’t have anything to worry about either. They knew they wouldn’t be pursued by police. Again, it’s the collapse of civilization.
CWB Chicago has the story . . .
A gunman opened fire just yards from where NBC’s Chicago Fire television show was filming on Chicago’s West Side this afternoon, according to law enforcement and industry sources. No injuries were reported, but a film industry source said the “full cast” was on-scene, and three cameras were rolling when the gunfire broke out around 1:55 p.m.
The hit show’s crew was filming exterior shots at A.A. Rayner and Son’s Funeral Home, 5911 West Madison, when a man began shooting from the opposite corner, a source said.
Law enforcement officers were already on the scene to provide security for the film set, and one of them called out shots fired on the local police radio channel. Listen:
The gunman, a Black male with braids, walked out of an alley and “fired several shots at people” while standing on the northwest corner of Madison and Mason, according to the cop.
He said the shooter jumped into a black SUV and fled through an alley after firing. It’s not clear who the “people” were that the officer saw the gunman firing toward.
Tucker Carlson opened his show earlier this week with a discussion of how far Chicago has fallen and how the Democrat machine that runs the show has abandoned the law-abiding people who live there.
People are more likely to be the victims of crime than criminals are likely to be caught, according to Carlson.
And it’s about to get worse. On January 1st, 2023, Illinois’ new “No Cash Bail” law kicks in. Jails will be releasing half or more of their inmates, most of those who couldn’t make bail. And those arrested for felony crimes will not be held, even for charges like 2nd degree murder, arson, kidnapping, armed robbery, DUI, burglary, drug charges or pretty much anything else.
Once again, this is what the collapse of civilization looks like, all thanks to generations of essentially one-party rule and zero accountability for anyone involved…politicians or criminals.
