Chicago Mayor Blames Retailers for Increased Crime and Lootings in City

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot blamed retailers for not protecting themselves enough from the criminals and looters in the city.

It’s their fault that the city is becoming unbearable to do business in.

Lightfoot, a committed leftist, can’t understand why they just don’t hire more security guards.

FOX Business reported:

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot blamed retailers for not making safety a priority amid a string of smash-and-grab thefts at retail stores in recent months.

“We still have retailers that won’t institute plans like having security officers in their stores, making sure that they’ve got cameras that are actually operational, locking up their merchandise at night, chaining high-end bags. These purses can be something that is attracting a lot of organized retail theft units,” Lightfoot said Monday.

Rob Karr, the president and CEO of the Illinois Retail Merchants Association, said Chicago businesses need the “fingerprinting among leadership to stop.”

Groups of looters in masks have stormed stores in orchestrated plots to steal thousands of dollars worth of merchandise in downtown Chicago and the city’s suburbs.

  1. Lightfoot, if you cant run your City the way it should be run , and you can not get gangs to stop shooting each other, then step down . Leave , say goodby . STOP blaming everybody for your screw-ups . O, sorry you must be a Democrat (Can not help yourself)

  2. Democrats are scum when have you ever known one of them to accept responsibility for anything they do wrong but always take credit for others hard work.
