I live in the heart of downtown Chicago. The north side and downtown near the river which are the wealthiest neighborhoods (River North, Gold Coast, Loop business district) were completely ransacked and destroyed overnight. Plenty of businesses were destroyed during the May riots and had to rebuild only to have massive rioting come back again overnight. Many smaller businesses already closed due to the lockdowns and now more won't recover from this destruction.
This city is out of control and simply unstable. The mayor and police have lost control and this is no longer a protest issue, but rather about skyrocketing violence and aggression coming from "youths" from the South and West sides to terrorize the rest of the city of Chicago. I have lived here for almost a decade and never have felt this level of tension just walking the streets and normies are starting to wake up as it is just impossible to ignore.
Here is a good Twitter account to follow for real updates:
Yeah but they voted in a black gay woman! They are sooo progressive. And they are going to defund the police. Plus she's on top of this 'rona thing and completely destroyed the economy and with all entertainment and restaurants closed (many for good). This is the New World Order as she said.
Sounds like an easy reelection to me. Even if they don't, does it really matter who the elect?
Besides, this is Trump's fault for the busted economy. Pritzer and Goblin are still looking for the Federal handout here.
