While Illinois citizens remain subject to a state-wide lockdown, someone forgot to tell the bad guys. Consistent with past practice, with warmer weather, the Chicago’s violence increased over the weekend. The bad guys racked up five murders and 44 others maimed in Murder City, USA.

Meanwhile, tough-talking Mayor Lori Lightfoot turned tail and ran when confronted by a young man who suggested she practice her own advice and “go home.”

HeyJackass.com has the latest body count from the weekend’s mayhem committed primarily by Chicago’s gangs. The violence includes three multi-victim (3+) shooting incidents. (Bold listings represent fatalities.)

Clearly, the criminals in Chicago have chosen to ignore the governor’s stay-home decree.

Meanwhile, Mayor Lightfoot sounded pretty tough Sunday at a press conference in the Harrison police district, right in the middle of some of Chicago’s most violent neighborhoods.

She warned citizens who failed to comply with the stay-home order, “We will shut you down. We will cite you and if we need to, we will arrest you and we will take you to jail. Period.”

WTTW has the story.

Whooping it up during the pandemic isn’t just a party foul.

It could get you arrested, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot and the city’s new Police Superintendent David Brown warned on Saturday – a balmy, partially sunny day with a high hitting the mid-70s.

“We will shut you down. We will cite you and if we need to, we will arrest you and we will take you to jail. Period,” Lightfoot said. “Don’t make us treat you like a criminal, but if you act like a criminal and you violate the law and you refuse to do what is necessary to save lives in this city during a pandemic we will take you to jail, period.”

Don’t be stupid, she said, “we are watching.”

So the Mayor is threatening to jail party-goers while the Governor is emptying the prisons of violent offenders. She tried to intimidate citizens while ignoring violent predatory criminals.

Instead of discussing strategies for dealing with they city’s orgy of violence, she’s repeated impotent threats against the productive citizens. Heaven forbid someone’s grandma fails to practice proper social distancing when gang members open fire in the nation’s largest open-air shooting range.

Plenty of folks noted the hypocrisy as the mayor threatens to lock-up joggers while the governor releases almost 4000 felons. Not to mention that Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart has released hundreds, if not thousands of county jail inmates, many who have been charged with serious, violent felonies.

Meanwhile, a few minutes after the press conference, Mayor Lightfoot walked a short distance away where young people gathered on a school playground while wearing masks. Some even wore gloves.  Obviously, these young people tried to act responsibly with their friends. The finger-wagging Lightfoot, surrounded by at least a dozen cops plus multiple bodyguards, told the kids to go home.

One moppet told her to go find a cure and told her to “go home.” At that point, Lightfoot kept on walking…  away from the group of young people acting responsibly.

It’s just another example of how Chicago’s leaders are all hat and no cattle when it comes to fighting real crime. They would rather intimidate law-abiding citizens than sanction gang members and violent criminals.

Watch the whole press conference to see more.

    • She got one tiny hint of the shit Chicago cops have to put up with from these ‘youths’ while they’re investigating murders.

      And she ran away.

      • Speaking of Chicago cops, she and the IG are all talk when it comes to punishing cops who raid the wrong homes, conduct illegal searches, and handcuff and point guns at innocent children.

        NOBODY had been punished and there are NO answers.

  1. Yeah, she has no problem talkin sh*t to regular workin class folks (preferably white folks), but when the bangers tell her to step off, she burns rubber! Useless POS!

      • Here on the farm we call it “manure”. And I agree, calling her “sh!t” is an insult to actual sh!t because manure is a valued and useful material.

        • I’d equate someone like her to an infectious pus… or that shit that comes out of a boil when it’s popped. She’s basically a pimple.

  2. Cesspool leftist government idiots trying to bully regular people while coddling real criminals even to the point of releasing them on the public. Chicago, Boston, New Orleans, New Jerk, San Freakisco…..

  3. It’s easy to talk shit while surrounded by more than a dozen cops and bodyguards. She wouldn’t last 10 seconds in “The Hood” without it. The real question is how much will this Draconian behavior effect the next couple of election cycles. Not just in Chiraq but, all across the nation. Will the anger being felt now dissipate over time. With the short attention span of the average citizen. My guess is very little. Libs gonna Lib. It seems to be apart of their DNA. Keep Your Powder dry.

    • I am in full agreement with “probably very little.” All it takes is “I am gonna give you FREEEEE SHIIIIIT!”

    • Let’s hope that the citizens of this country are more intelligent than that and more concerned with the rights that are Constitutionally ours. I believe this so-called virus is being overblown by the government in an attempt to pre-empt our rights as citizens. To date, I don’t wear a mask, don’t wear the gloves and don’t curtail my outside activity. AND, to date, I do not have ANY virus. Also I don’t take the flu shots either. I’ve never had the flu and tell people I don’t believe in it. On the positive side, I am a blood type O, so I hear we type “O”s don’t get the viral infections very often.

  4. At least we now know why they are releasing all those violent criminals and ignoring break ins, rapes, muggings etc.. They need to make room for all of the despicable human beings who dare to tell the ruling elite to go fuck themselves by ignoring their bullshit unconstitutional decrees….

  5. Typical libtard activity. All mouth, no action, UNLESS you are a law-abiding citizen who just doesn’t like their basic Constitutional rights abolished by agovernment dictator

  6. “…all hat and no cattle…” is one of my favorite idioms, and was aptly utilized in this context.

  7. To be “fair” to the beetlejuice(it’s a meme) munchkin she could have those supposedly safety conscious chillen shot on a whim…did you think Rahm E.,Richie Daley or Jane Byrne were tough guy’s? Not since Richard J. has anyone been “tough” Boch…

  8. 5 KIA is no big deal on a warm weekend. Looks like the bangers are practicing social distancing.

    6500 N. Ashland is close to where I went to High School.

  9. The mayor runs from criminals and has stated she will not hesitate to throw law abiding citizens in jail. Technically she looks like one of the walking dead and is about half as smart. She needs to be removed from office, and probably investigated too.

    • Remember Typhoid Mary? She effectively got lifetime house arrest on Ellis Island for being an asymptomatic typhoid carrier. Do you think she her rights were violated?

      • This is not typhoid. This is a disease that almost entirely strikes down those with preexisting health problems like diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, etc. But the government is imprisoning healthy people….

        • Well this is one those “we know what you are but now we are haggling about the price” kind of things. So you agree that government had the authority to impose restrictions during an epidemic. Dead is dead. As far as I know there is no age or physical disability exemption for the protection of the public health.

        • If you are scared hide, If you want the government to do ALL of your day to day thinking MOVE, there are a number of countries that will gladly take control of you and whatever possessions they allow you to have…. The Federal government has NO authority under the Constitution to order you to stay in your home and the various state and local governments have overreached their own authorities to grant themselves some really outrageous controls over a supposedly “free” people… This year millions will get the common cold and hundreds of thousands/millions(?) will get the seasonal flu (thousands will die from the flu) but no one has suggested we lock ourselves in our homes from Nov til June. The Government SHOULD have issued guidelines and presented the facts and let the people decide what is best for them… I am considered an “at risk” person over 70 a little overweight but good lungs, a healthy heart and safe cholesterol and blood sugar numbers.. I will do what I feel is best for me and if those in “power” don’t like it fuck them, arrest me and we can let let the courts sort it out… I can see a lot of changes coming and a lot of questions over how those in charge were able to create all those supposed “authorities” that they are now using to lock down an entire population of nearly 350 million people..

  10. If you judge Chicago by the PT Barnum parade of mayors a NORK nuc on City Hall would be certainly be urban improvement.

  11. Chirak, the nations largest outdoor shooting range with moving targets! Most gun laws gun free state bassakwords! The sewer vomit armpit of the Midwest!

  12. “We will shut you down. We will cite you and if we need to, we will arrest you and we will take you to jail. Period.”

    “We”

    The Chicago democratic machine and media have vilified the police extra intensely for the past 10ish years and now they think the police are going to all run out and arrest minorities for breaking executive orders of somewhat dubious legality. Cops may not all be the smartest tools in the shed but most of them have learned by now that the blowhards that give these orders aren’t going to stand behind them for a second the moment they go bad and someone gets hurt- which is in the nature of policing.

    “Stay fetal”

  13. “young people gathered on a school playground while wearing masks. Some even wore gloves. Obviously, these young people tried to act responsibly with their friends”

    Maybe. Or maybe they just wanted to avoid fingerprints and visual IDs.

  14. She BETTER be surrounded by cops, ChIraq folks don’t play….they will kill you no matter WHO you are or who you THINK you are…

  15. This is the same brainless sack of sh*t that said she wouldn’t comply with I.C.E.,how’s it feel b*tch?

  16. Will the cops be stupid enough to arrest essential media workers like storm chasers? Will the cops be stupid enough to arrest other essential workers.

  17. Chicago is what happens when democRats run a city into the ground. All most public school kids know about firearms is what they’ve seen on TV and heard in gangster rap. The Second Amendment is not explained or allowed in schools and where there is no firearm related education firearm stupidity is going to prevail.
    Every school kid needs to be taught to respect and understand their rights and the rights of others. And every school kid needs a field trip to a prison to see what happens to people who screw up. Heads full of mush live in the present, not the next hour or day. That has to change.

  18. “Quarantine” is when you restrict the movement of sick people.
    “Tyrany” is when you restrict the movement of healthy people.
    Any questions ?
