Democrats are turning America’s inner cities into absolute hellholes.
The crime has gotten completely out of hand.
A police dispatcher put his job on the line to tell the truth about a top Democrat.
Twenty-two people were shot, two of them fatally, over Christmas weekend in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago.
While grim, this isn’t an unusual statistic. There have been over 800 homicides at this point in 2021 in Chicago.
Keith Thornton Jr., a Chicago police dispatcher, released a video blasting Lightfoot and other city officials such as the Superintendent of Police David Brown for allowing Chicago to become a “death zone.”
In a Facebook video posted on Thursday last week, Thornton slammed Lightfoot for not caring about Chicago police officers and failing to protect Chicago residents especially in the 16th District of the city.
“Today we’re talking about the northwest side of Chicago, and this was brought to my attention by several of my officers who have texted me, ‘OK’ and said that they were scared,” Thornton said via a Facebook live. “They’re tired of this nonsense. They have no backing and they’re scared of being out there by themselves, working in the 16th District. We’re talking about the 16th District.”
CWBChicago reported that, “The Jefferson Park district was staffed by 268 officers when Brown became superintendent in April 2020. There are 229 assigned to the district this month, according to the Chicago Office of Inspector General.”
“And I’m going to tell you right now, 16th District is so shorthanded with officers that when you call 9-1-1, you’re not getting a quick response like many other parts of the city,” he continued. “Officers are not coming to you. And why? Because they can’t be assigned cars to go to you because we have very few officers within these neighborhoods. And it’s nonsense.”
Thornton said that police are having trouble responding to serious crimes.
Thornton claimed that Lightfoot simply did not care about areas like the 16th District and also only cared about herself and specifically blamed Lightfoot for the situation.
“I’m hot about it because this mayor does not care about Chicago police officers, period. She doesn’t care about any first responders. She does not care about the d*** city. It doesn’t matter if you’re white, black, Asian, Hispanic, other, straight, gay, Democrat, or Republican. She don’t even care about her city workers. All that lady cares about is her f***ing self.
“And I pray you’re watching this because you’re a disgrace and I’m tired of it,” he said toward Lightfoot. “And your city is tired of it. Matter of fact, it’s not your city. The city of Chicago is tired of it.
“And I know you don’t like me, and that’s OK, because I love you,” he said pointedly, “but I’m tired of you because you’re an absolute disgrace to everyone within the city.
“This city is burning. And either I can let it burn,” Thornton said at one point, “Either you guys can let it burn or we can stand up, do something about it, and get burned for it.
“We’ve got to come together,” Thornton concluded, offering to speak with anybody who would help solve the problem of violence, including Lightfoot. “We’ve got to come together for our area because this is bull s***. Good night.”
