Democrat mayor of Chicago, Lori Lightfoot, was addressing social distancing recommendations and threatening to give people citations, and if they need to, arrest them and send them to jail if they are caught throwing parties or having "gatherings" that are deemed too large.
WTTW: “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.”
This is a city plagued with massive amounts of REAL crime and she's over here with this alien shaped head of hers talking about throwing people in jail over some social distancing nonsense and a house party? I get it. You shouldn't pack a house full of 500 people and think the virus won't spread, because it certainly will if just one person has it. But what if everyone checked their temperature at the door? If you're 99 degrees and up, then GTFO!
Why doesn't she try fighting some real crime and see how that turns out. One of the most violent cities in the country and she's on TV talking about citations for people who are having parties.
She should talk this tough to some real gangsters and see what happens.
It annoys me that this is how she talks to her constituents. This makes me want to have a house party - with mostly women of course, and myself, and literally no social distancing... or clothes.
