Trump sends hundreds of federal officers to Chicago

Incredibly, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot didn’t dismiss the action out of hand. I guess because now she figures she can try to get President Trump to share the blame if things don’t get better. Not, I’m sure, out of the goodness of her heart.

According to the Chicago Tribune:

“Perhaps no citizens have suffered more from the menace of violent crime than the wonderful people of Chicago, a city I know very well,” Trump said.

Attorney General William Barr said more than 200 federal agents would be sent to Chicago, where they will engaged in “classic crime fighting” such as investigating murders, gangs, gun crime and drug trafficking organizations. The new agents will include members of the FBI, US Marshals Service, the DEA and the Department of Homeland Security, among others.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot offered a measured response to the announcement, expressing both cautious optimism about the additional resources and skepticism about Trump’s motives.

“If those agents are here to actually work in partnership and support of gun violence and violent cases, plugging into existing infrastructure of federal agents, not trying to play police in our streets, then that’s something different and that may add value but the proof is going to be in the pudding,” Lightfoot said. “It’s too soon to be able to say if this is a value add or not.”

  1. About damn time.

    Give a couple of Chiraq’s worst and dimmest a slight case of lead poisoning, and then watch how fast the rest of the Democrat shitholes miraculously get everything under control.

  2. Lori Lightweight in proof of how important local elections are. She’s unable to control her city, but still plays ruler and dictates to federal officers. Embarrassing.

  3. How many people were shot in front of the funeral home in Chicago RIGHT after Lightfoot’s comments….14? And the part that struck me ( no pun intended) was that the assailants barrage against the crowd was countered by those IN the crowd shooting back. The Wild West…
    Lightfoot has lost control, people die daily…
    And you have to love her comments…., well, ok, help us out, as long as we are still in control…uh, Madam Mayor, THAT is exactly the problem…..
