Mayor Lori Lightfoot of Chicago has, on multiple occasions, earned the ire of the Right and its most popular mouthpieces for her approach to crime in the violent city of Chicago. On its own, Chicago accounts for a large portion of America’s homicides, especially those due to gun violence. Since the Black Lives Matter movement gained traction and subsequently splintered into key groups, members of the vocal progressive Left have repeatedly called to defund the police.
Although Mayor Lightfoot is one such Democrat, she wants the “strife” between officers and civilians to “just stop” in the wake of a traffic stop that turned deadly for officers. Yet police brutality still happens across the nation — so can there really be a satisfactory solution?
