Perhaps no city better epitomizes the burgeoning crime wave in America’s largest cities than Chicago, Illinois. Mayor Lori Lightfoot finds herself at the center of this thanks to her apathetic attitude and Charmin-soft crime policies.
The Gateway Pundit reported today that 2,278 Chicagoans have been killed since Lightfoot took office back in 2019. At the same time, the arrest rate has dropped to a mere 5%.
She was even caught dancing in the snow at the same time her constituents were getting gunned down.
Surely the answer to quelling this crisis is to simply arrest more criminals and dole out harsh sentences. Right?

Unfortunately, this common sense idea is not in the cards. But do not fret because Lightfoot has come up with a bold, innovative solution to stop crime in Chicago.
During a mayoral debate last month, Lightfoot said her plan to end the crime wave involves telling vendors to stop using cash.
