Shots Fired at Police as New Riots, Looting Trash Downtown Chicago

From the AP:

Hundreds of people smashed windows, stole from stores and clashed with police early Monday in Chicago’s Magnificent Mile shopping district and other parts of the city’s downtown.

At one point, shots were fired at police and officers returned fire, police spokesman Tom Ahern said on Twitter. No officers were injured in the shooting.

It wasn’t immediately clear what led to the unrest, which began shortly after midnight, but anti-police graffiti was seen in the area. Hours earlier, dozens of people had faced off with police after officers shot and wounded a person Sunday in the city’s Englewood neighborhood.

Asked for updates on the situation, Ahern told The Associated Press in an email that police planned to hold a news conference Monday morning.

Along the Magnificent Mile, people were seen going in and out of stores carrying shopping bags full of merchandise as well as at a bank, the Chicago Tribune reported, and as the crowd grew vehicles dropped off more people in the area.

One officer was seen slumped against a building, several arrests were made and a rock was thrown at a police vehicle, the newspaper said. Police worked early Monday to disperse the crowds.

In the earlier shooting in Englewood, police said in a statement that they responded about 2:30 p.m. Sunday to a call about a person with a gun and tried to confront someone matching his description in an alley. He fled from officers on foot and shot at officers, police said.

Officers returned fire, wounding him, and a gun was recovered, police said. He was taken to a hospital for treatment and three officers involved also were taken to a hospital for observation, the statement said.

More than an hour after the shooting, police and witnesses said a crowd faced off with police after someone reportedly told people that police had shot and wounded a child. That crowd eventually dispersed.

      Hey! Don’t blame us for this!! If 45% of polled black voters weren’t going to vote for Donald Trump this election cycle, then we wouldn’t need to make OUR black voters to riot like this. Those people normally vote for us to the tune of 95% but a good chunk seem to be getting uppity and voting Republican this election cycle. Those Uncle Tom’s need to get back on the plantation and remember that the Democrat party are their masters! At least Lori Lightfoot remembers and our subjects…..er… people,… ya, our people… in Chicago will vote her back in to office.

Fact is, Dems continue to pass gun laws, which have historically been all about controlling the black population.

          Unfortunately some people do not see the cowards behind the curtain. They see black, blame black, etc. That narrow mindedness is the intended result of the seen before tactics of the communist terrorist weather underground bill ayers et al. Get the blacks angry and turn them loose on the city in order to put fear in milquetoast America. If the carnage is to stop America must bow to fear and meet their demands.

          Rest assured the cowards behind the curtain are lily white marxists just like bill ayers. They need gullible Blacks to do their dirty work. Unfortunately far too many Blacks are politically inept history illiterates and that makes them easy pickins for cowards behind the curtain. Fill Blacks full of sugarcoated marxist poop and trinket promises and you obviously own them and you have an army to do your dog whistle dirty work.

          It’s about making America comply with their marxist demands. Lowly Blacks void of any Content of Character are being played again mostly by their lily white democRat slave masters and they are too ignorant to know it.

Productive is the party that plants trees under whose shade they will never sit.

    Being Chicago the next logical step is to ban guns because of the coordinated looting. Since it was a handgun that the police found we must ban ARs, certain shotguns and anything else that looks scary. And we need to impose border checks with Indiana since you can go to a gun show and buy duffle bags full of guns without background checks at all.

    We also need sensitivity training for the officer’s involved. Why would they harass a gang member who was on his way to church to feed the hungry?

    All the above is snark of course, but wait for the Mayor and others to suggest these points are valid.

      “In time, when there’s no local shopping left and they have to drive 50 miles for a gallon of milk, even Chicago Democrats will get the message.”

      No, you’re missing the main point of all these riots: These cities are already bankrupt wastelands for the most part except a small area of “high rise affluence”. The left is hoping that the red states will end up paying for the rebuilding of what they, the left, have knowingly ruined to increase their power and hold over the inner city folk. Planned from the start, and yes, as Debbie W states far above, the inner city people, on their own, could not coordinate and plan such well-placed looting and destruction without the socialist whites who are really running this show and calling the shots. They hide behind the blacks because anyone who might criticize the issues will be labled racist by the press regardless of the incident. I have relatives on the north side (Evanston) are who are paid anarchists, and they are far from destitute- old hippie has a doctorate, 2 kids have poly sci degrees with mom being a Methodist minister. Their travel, lodging and expenses to/from zones is paid for, they even meet up ahead of time to decide who gets arrested this time. Guys are in their 70s now and still living their dream…

      1. avatar uncommon_sense says:

        Okay, so who is paying their expenses?

        As so many people are so fond of saying, “Follow the money.”

      2. avatar Garrison Hall says:

        “I have relatives on the north side (Evanston) are who are paid anarchists, and they are far from destitute . . .”

        Exactly. Antifa and BLM are quite well financed (BLM reportedly has about 100 mil) and are actually directed by a well educated, well-funded, core of largely white revolutionaries. What we are seeing on America’s streets is not at the kind of spontaneous “protests” the media likes to describe. We are, instead, seeing the evolution of a well-planned full-scale revolution. Yes, it can happen here. And it’s happening in a country that is not only armed to the teeth but has a larger population of combat-experienced former soldiers than ever before in our history. And most of that well armed, experienced, population doesn’t much like Hard Left revolutionaries. Think about that.

        1. avatar GS650G says:

          It’s usual practice to disarm the people, wait 2 years to be sure no one has a gun, then off the population. See Armenia for an early example of what the Germans , Russians and Chinese did.
          These guys are doing it while we are still tooled up. I’m curious who is going to disarm 110 million people.

        Defund the cops and get chaos while shifting the police funding to pet projects. Then cry about the damage and the lack of civil order in an attempt to blackmail the “law and order” types into what amounts to a bailout under the cover of “restoring order and rebuilding”.

        Monies be fungible. The city leaders probably often see this as their one shot at getting a massive federal cash injection to cover for the leadership’s decades of incompetence and fiscal insanity.

        Ultimately it’s just a bailout for the cities, public sector unions and pension funds.

        Actually if you look at the swing in (mostly flawed, long post I’m not going to bother with) polling it’s now looking possible that the GOP takes the house and Trump wins both the popular vote and the electoral college.

        Cities themselves, outside a few places like NYC and LA, are not the big movers of votes. Suburbs are. Example; Denver. The city is about 220,000 people. The metro area is 2.9 million. The 2.7 million people in the burbs are not happy about the city and vastly outnumber the actual city dwellers. Evidence of this exists now in polling but also in residential and commercial real estate prices and other metric as well.

        Shit dude, the tards in Denver officially added $50K to the value of my house in the last three months. Probably more considering that two houses in my immediate area sold for $100K over asking in the last few weeks.

          Try that and you’ll find out what “civil unrest” really looks like. That’s where people really do get “put against the wall” and it’s not gonna be the Left controlling the firing squads at that point.

          The Left is crazy, but not that crazy. Just go watch the video of the Antifa “fight” (asskicking) in FoCo the other day. Those little twerps got fucked good and hard for attacking a pro-cop guy in a wheelchair. You can see absolute pure terror in their eyes when they realize the hornet’s nest they’ve kicked, that they might actually die in the next few seconds and that there is NOTHING they can do to stop it.

          The look on the one kid’s face when he gets wrapped up in an RNC is fucking priceless. Nap time antifag, resistance is futile. The look on another guy’s face is even better when he hears an older guy yell “No guns! Punch their faces all you want but don’t shoot them!”.

Trump won some KEY swing states by only a couple thousand votes so all they need do is keep the poll margins high enough (6/7%) then squeak Biden through with a two or three percent margin, who’s going to question it? They keep pointing to Hildabeasts BIG three million vote popular win BUT she beat Trump by over five million votes in Ca and NY, states that went to her anyway… Discount the excess votes in those two states and Trump won the rest of the country by more than two million popular votes….

      jwm,

      I sincerely hope that you are right. Unfortunately, I have serious doubts. People in my neck of the woods despise Trump with a passion and will vote for Democrats no matter what — even if that means keeping Democrats in office who actively enable looting, rioting, violent crime, zero-bail, and early release from prisons.

      Look at it this way: while your average Democrat does not like the mayhem, it really doesn’t affect them in rural areas and suburbs. For that matter the mayhem does not affect 95% of Democrats who actually live in urban corridors. (Hint: how many Democrat voters actually LIVE along the Magnificent Mile in Chicago where this looting would rock them to their core? Answer: none.)

      Unless the mayhem hits a Democrat voter directly, he/she will NOT vote Republican and help Trump stay in office. That is my opinion. I really, really hope that I am wrong.

      1. avatar strych9 says:

        Democrats don’t really matter. It’s the 35 to 40 percent of Independents that matter.

        Even Democratic operatives and pollsters are quietly thinking Joe’s already lost, I personally know a few of these people. Polls have shifted massively towards Trump. Double what you’d expect up front and a month early to boot. They also know that traditionally it’s hard to properly sample Republicans or GOP leaning voters and every metric out there suggests that there’s a big “secret Trump” vote due to the current climate of fear.

        1. avatar Sam I Am says:

          “Hitler,Mao,George III or China right now?!? ”

          IIRC, Paul spoke to generations ruled by Roman tyrants (Greek word for “chief”) who were no better than Hitler, Mao, G3, or Little Rocket Man. If Paul was real, and he actually said what was written down, the concept is something to marvel at. Most instantly, a rebellion against authority launched by men who were certain they had a moral right/imperative to throw off a devinely established ruler.

          If life were simple, anyone could do it.

        2. avatar strych9 says:

          Discussing Paul is always a toughie.

          Mainly because Christians don’t want to admit the truth. Christians were deliberate fifth columnists in Rome. They were religious, sure, but they were also deeply and overtly political, heavy into psychedelics, and actively trying to tear down society, not just the emperor.

          The vast majority were executed because they chose to be for political reasons. They were despised not for their religious beliefs but for being, essentially, to Rome what Antifa is to us. Marcus Aurelius hated them on a religious level but went out of his way to promote tolerance towards them. A tolerance the “end timers” didn’t want because they believed, as 12er Muslims do today, that if they could tear apart society they would bring on the Apocalyse and get to heaven faster. Every one of them that demanded to be executed only fueled the propaganda fire of “we’re being persecuted!” which is exactly what the zealots wanted.

          Thankfully Christianity eventually grew up.

    It wasn’t immediately clear what led to the unrest

    Oh look, they thought they were immune, They thought as they let their gangbangers kill each other (and any kids that got in the way) that the stuff going on in damn near every major city in the country would just ignore them… Til the Marxists AND the (anti-fascist) Fascists ran out of shit to steal and destroy and now it’s Chiraqs turn… Twinkle toes was already meeting their demands before they even got to her which just made their job easier… “OOOOOHH, I CAN’T BELIEVE BLM ( a gang led by “true believers” in Karl Marx and brother Saul Alinsky) COULD POSSIBLY BE BEHIND THE RIOTS AND LOOTING IN CHICAGO.” Yeah, just like Minneapolis/St Paul, Milwaukee, NYC, L.A, Miami, Portland, Seattle etc. NO way they could have made it ALL the way to Chiraq… BUT it gets better as the schools system cuts funding for school security in HALF (what could possibly go wrong?).. Those dumb shits are sowing the seeds of their own destruction.. The END of the far left progressive Democrat (at least in the light of day) is close at hand… Most people just want to be able to live their lives in safety and be left the hell alone… Question, Why when White Supremacists endorsed Trump the MSM went berserk and made it THE main story/topic of discussion for days (hell some STILL bring it up regularly) YET when the HEAD of the Communist Party U.S.A. endorses Biden, not a sound?

  47. avatar Hank Reardon says:

    Let me tell you about Chicago – where I was born. My immigrant grandparents all lived on the South Side until the black criminals moved in. Then they moved, and had to move again. Chicago used to be at least a functioning city, even with all the corruption. No more.

    Chicago has been a corrupt Democrat-run city since the time of Al Capone. They just got away with it because they could grift money off of the all the businesses in the city, which were driven by a huge industrial base of factories, office parks, stockyards, railroads, etc. The Daley machine also got all the black votes by a deal with the black Aldermen to have cops mostly stay out of the black areas, except in the case of serious crime. And then the hammer came down and the cops would beat the crap out of the perps. Yes, sometimes they got the wrong guy, but not often. The cops were sons of immigrants – Irish, Polish, Italian, and didn’t take any crap. And the politicians backed them up.

    Then came the 1960s and Johnson’s “Great Society” legislation, that destroyed the black family. Telling women they could live off welfare with no husband, and children by as many men as they wanted. The liberals tore down the black neighborhoods and stacked everyone in high-rise “public housing.” Drugs started to flood in from Mexico and South American as the media, musicians, and hollywood portrayed drug use as “cool” (see Obama in his youth.) Result: the black areas went to crap. Crime went out of control, and the cops began to avoid the black areas, except for a few black cops that just kept things from blowing up completely. Some decent blacks moved to a few areas on the South Side that can be considered somewhat functional, run by some fairly honest black politicians.

    The city remained segregated, but blacks migrated to the West Side and even further South. White flight took people to the Southwest Side and the North Side and out to the suburbs. Hispanic people (many illegal) moved into their former homes, and now form a buffer zone between blacks and whites. The Mexican gangs don’t take any crap from the black criminals and effectively keep them out of their neighborhoods. But obviously they also victimize and extort their people. However, many Mexicans value family and so their neighborhoods aren’t complete crapholes like many black areas.

    The Democrat-run union schools went to crap as the teacher’s union simply demanded more and more money for less work. There was no longer any discipline in the schools. Once great schools in some Chicago neighborhoods all started to fall apart as gangs moved in. The average salary of a Chicago teacher is now over $70,000 per year (with three months off), and a pension that can start at age 55. This is the same situation for ALL public employees in Illinois – everyone from the garbage men to the $200,000 university administrators. And every Illinois university is full of left-wing radical morons. Think “professors” Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorn (Obamas friends and both former terrorists).

    The Catholic Churches in Chicago, which once held neighborhoods together has gone to crap, with actual promotion of homosexuality by the cardinal and many priests. About half the priests are now homosexuals, and many have been convicted of molesting boys and young priests in the seminaries. Most of them are leftist pukes now, and the sermons are filled with Democrat talking points. Any decent person has fled the Catholic Church in Chicago.

    While all this is going on, businesses and industry fled. Factories closed down and moved out of state or to other countries (think Motorola, Zenith, Ford, and all their part supplilers). So the tax base (an opportunties for politican graft) start drying up. So property taxes and all sorts of fees are raised. This same thing happens throughout Illinois 1990s to today, so the state is bankrupt and has a huge unfunded public employee pension liability. Now they want to raise taxes even more. The state already has some of the highest property taxes in the country.

    Over the past several years the state has torn down the crappy public housing in Chicago and moved blacks to downstate Illinois, Iowa, and other surrounding areas. Many of these blacks are criminals and have destroyed once-nice towns such as Champaign-Urbana, Peoria, Kankakee, Mt. Vernon, Carbondale. The blacks love the “knock-out game” where they punch an elderly or middle aged white person as hard as they can. Young thugs drive around in their “hoopties”, blasting rap music, yelling at white people, wearing pants below their butts, and their hats on backwards. There are no fathers around to curb this behavior.

    So why is anyone surprised that things are now out of control with Lori Lightfoot in charge? Ram Emanuel barely kept the lid on. The criminal blacks and a smattering of Antifa is going to destroy Chicago and start attacking the still functioning neighborhoods after they have destroyed their own . The Mexicans will arm up, and there will be blood. Soon.
