Fox News contributor and acclaimed civil rights attorney Leo Terrell slammed Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot over what he calls a “political stunt” to refund the Chicago police.

Fox News reports:

 This is a political stunt. As you said, she’s running for re-election. She cut the budget last year. She is a friend of Black Lives Matter. I can ask all of the viewers, what has Lori Lightfoot done to curb crime in the last two years, the summer riots, she’s done absolutely nothing. This is basically blood money. I’ll tell you right now, she turned down help from Donald Trump a couple years ago and all she is trying to do is kowtow to her political base. … Look, the Chicago police union gave her a vote of no confidence they turned their backs on her regarding Officer French who lost her life. She is no friend to police officers at all and you can ask the viewers what has she done to curb crime. Absolutely nothing.

Chicago has experienced a distinct uptick in violent crimes in the past year with many pointing towards Lightfoot’s initial push to “defund” the police as a major contributor. Now that Lightfoot is seeing the results having the ability to impact the future re-election she has conveniently reversed course.

Hmmm, gee, let’s think about this, Lori. You cut the funding to the cops and crime goes up in your fair city. Whodathunkit? A smart mayor would have reversed course when the trend was easily noticed after just a few weeks, not a year later! A wise mayor would have never done something so utterly ridiculous or stupid in the first place. You, my dear girl, should be removed from office, run out of town on a rail, and forced to live in the conditions to which you have subjected your city–near lawlessness with no one to which to turn for help–for no less than a year yourself! You are a vile, imbecilic, conceited fool who never should have risen from the muck under Chicago. Ooze back to from where you came and let us put you into the pages of history, ideally never to be repeated ever again!

Lightfoot is one of the most incompetent mayors in America. She is right up there with the Mayor of NYC. She is running for re-election that’s why she is supporting law enforcement.

But the unfortunate reality is that these dummies, that inhabit Chitcago (intentionally misspelled.) will just vote this abhorrent, sick individual in for another term! You get what you get Chitcago!
